We wouldn’t be any more successful if Dallas and NE switched divisions.
He is one person and was not as good as either Quinn or Lawrence.

Playing our starters week 17 against the Eagles when they were playing their backups was the most ridiculous thing- Every Cowboy backup should have been given the opportunity to play in that game so they could showcase what they could do.
This is obviously good evidence that stats don't tell the whole story.
There is not a single person alive who should realistically think that Demarcus Lawrence was better than Nick Bosa this year.
But nope' because it was deemed 'more important' that Garrett manage another of one of his meaningless 'winning seasons' that his supporters- including Jerry Jones - can use to try to defend him. I guess it works in the gullible or those not paying attention?
Ultimately, we were right all along, and they were completely wrong. It's just too bad that it took them 10 years to admit it.
Of course he was. By a mile.
at the time we were still in it so i cant get to upset about winning that last game. I was more upset about losing the previous week but to your argument when you draft in the middle its harder to become an elite team has validity but when you compound that with some of the reaches lately it makes it even harder
Yeah I don't know why fans buy into this idea that we now draft well. They aren't complete disasters like in the last decade but that's about it. I have harped on this for a long time now.
Our 2017 #1 pick is not even here any longer. Our last 2 second rd picks are not good. Connor and T.Hill. In fact, not one single player from our last draft had any impact at all. Our #1 pick in 2018 has serious health concerns going forward and was horrendous last year. 2015 draft was god awful. We take these risks on guys that just don't work out with high picks. Like Randy Gregory. And then Chaz Green the next round. That 2017 draft that was hyped up with all these good defenders we supposedly got, they just aren't good. Especially Awuzie. Wasn't he a 2nd round pick? That is 5 straight years of 2nd round busts.
I think people are still going back and thinking of Tyron, Frederick and Maritn. And think that means we draft well currently. We don't. Will McClay is vastly overrated.
Very good points on Niners - and how 49ers built a SB contender so quickly and ingeniously without having to tank and acquire an No.1 overall QB.
Funny how everyone playing this Championship weekend didn't say that this previous draft......yet we are?
It's easier for some folks to look for other reasons than to acknowledge the real one:
Look, w he at do you expect? 8-8 seasons since 1997. Mediocrity is our motto!
We'd do better if we had a GM who listened to the scouts instead of coaches who only offer bonehead advice. It's a killer far too often.
Xactly. A decade of inept coaching has brought us here. Drafting Taco?????
This is a Jones staple for many years.
Now I’ve heard it all
Super Bowl teams routinely pick late with a few exceptions
And btw, we picked 4th overall as recently as 2014
Ok. Sf defense sucks
2019 pick #17: Dexter Lawrence
2018 pick #17: Derwin James
2017 pick #17: Jonathan Allen
2016 pick #17: Keanu Neal
2015 pick #17: Arik Armstead
Those aren't players who hold you back from winning a Super Bowl.
