    Player/coach? Is this possible? In fact, has it ever been done in the NFL?

    From Wikipedia …

    In the mid-1950s Tom Landry played defensive back while serving as defensive coordinator for the New York Giants. In the early 1970s, when Landry was coach of the Dallas Cowboys, he made running back Dan Reeves a player-coach.

    His drops toward the end of the season concerned me a lot.

    It's a given that he'd be slow and immobile, but once his hands started failing, I got fed up.

    I wouldn't mind having Witten play for one more year as a short yardage, 3rd down option, but I doubt he'd accept such a limited role.

    Yeah, it's pretty simple. If they can't find a young TE to beat Witten out, thats on them.

    Great conversation:

    Witten: I want to come back and play for the Cowboys, start and play every snap.

    MM: I would start working on your horseshoe game if you want to compete at something, because you won’t be playing with the Cowboys next year.

    MM: Good talk.

    Yeah that’s probably how you guys wish it went but I’m sure much more respect was given to him than that.

    I hate seeing cowboy fans say bad things about one of the toughest SOB’s this team has ever seen.

    I think he deserves a little better respect than that.

    Your thinking about holding on to the aged ("He can block ") exemplifies what has brought us to 8-8 land. Hang on to the underachievers. Operate a home for the aged and crippled.
    Good luck with tha, matey!
