    You're welcome bro.
    Even if I don't agree with you about something I always respect that your points are well thought out and logical.

    Crawford is the Kevin Costner of Dlinemen. Versatile

    People act as if the money Crawford was paid came out of their wallets. He does make it happen for the other D-Linemen.

    Good post, my man .

    Said for years he is a very solid player. He needs to stay at 3DT. He can still rotate some at DE just as Irving can.

    Wow. We rarely disagree. Here's one. He's too valuable although we could be outbid so it certainly could happen.

    Agreed. He's much more consistent than Irving, IMO.
    With a lower ceiling of course.

    Unfortunately he was a winner of circumstance. We didn't have a good Dline nor a leader for it. Crawford just happened to be the best of what we had and what was available. Remember we were trotting out the golden cock for half the game back then. I had a debate about Crawfords contract with a buddy when the numbers first came out. He was ok with it and I wasn't. His only argument was who's better? And I had to admit if we let him walk we would be extremely week along the Dline but he had to admit there wasn't any way he was going to live up to that contract. We paid him for his leadership and utility more than his production. I've never been mad at Crawford but I was upset that our front office handed out a large contract for an invisible player on game day.

    He’s an average nfl lineman that gets paid above average money. The criticism will happen if a player doesn’t live up to his pay.

    That’s just the way it is.

    Crawford is a victim of the neglect on the DL. He signed his contract when he showed his potential was rising as a 3T. The DE were weak due to injuries to DLaw, and we had a revolving door at the WDE, so they asked Tcraw to slim down a little play DE because he does play the run well from the DE spot but pass rush wise he does not have the quick twitch to be effective all the time. They keep bouncing him from DT to DE and he cannot get real comfortable and hone his skill to try and excel at one. Now with Irving and Collins being out I am sure they will go to him and tell him to put on weight because he will be in the 3T rotation once again.

    I'm fairly sure if Goodell could ban all Dallas Cowboy games he would do so. He LOVES him some Giants. OBJ can pull off a drug deal with hookers in his room,ON FILM...and he gets NADA...zilch...no punishment. Yet Goodell takes a Dallas player and harshly punishes them for a simple he said she said thing..OR ACCUSATION..true or not. something has to be done with Goodell..he is ruining the product.

    Comparing Crawford to Dez. Come on now. Why do you think we would be more willing to put up with Crawford’s average play then Dez’s average play?

    Dez did much moe for this team than Crawford has ever done. Has Crawford really truly ever win a game for us or helped win, when a big play was needed...NO...

    Not true on either count.....Pro Bowlers get 14m a year........ TCrawford gets 7m.....at least get the facts right

    See above......... that is flat out wrong on both counts

    Not expensive at all......... his contract is 3/21m....that is what Trent Murphy.....Kareem Martin.....Kevin Dennard and Vinny Curry ....... you know all those All Pro superstars
