    If we're going to use the Rams games as our yardstick, we can cut the front 7 tomorrow. 270+ yards rushing.

    Between the Colts and the Rams, I think Marinelli got pantsed again. Or Richard did, and Marinelli showed him how. I don't think either game is an indication of the quality of our players as much as the quality of our coaching.

    this signing says 1 thing. and i love how the fans are for it.

    Dallas FO: guys, our HC sucks, we need steak at every position

    Fans: hell yea but well still JG.

    Dallas FO: ok but you know we have to do this because our HC sucks.

    Fans: we know we know we ll defend anything as long as its Dallas. Campo was a world beater, trust us. we got this.

    Dallas FO: Fill the seats up, these guys ill buy anything.

    No way. Way too much guaranteed for a guy whose leg exploded 2 of the last 3 years.

    I'll be interested to see how much Thomas can get. He'll get the most at a 2nd tier team with a lot of cap room looking for a big name to put butts in the seats.

    Cowboys could do a 1 year deal planning to churn a comp pick out of a healed Thomas. That seems possible. But it doesn't really fit with our current needs. They like Woods at FS, while Frazier and Heath only have 1 year left. Woods is very cheap. You've got to make use of cheap starters if you want to have money to spend where your don't have a cheap starter.

    The “shredding” that killed us vs Rams was their complete dominance of our O-line and D-line.

    When your defensive front 7 can’t stop the run, OR rush the passer, it won’t matter if your safeties are HOFers.

    ET will be called a bum by many by the end of the first season. Can't wait to see reactions throughout the season!

    This is confusing. In the Cowboys playoff game against the Rams Goff only completed 53% of his passes, only had 186 yards, and didn’t throw for a TD. The Rams running game shredded the Cowboys, but their passing game was mostly ineffective.

    Like the player, but DAL needs the cap for there young guys. At most, they should see what Amos would cost at SS. A cheap vet is Stephen's way, and I'm going to agree at this position...Vacarro.

    I'd welcome ET into the fold with no reservations if he humbled himself enough to give the Cowboys a highly affordable contract. Otherwise, forget it.

    You'd seriously give 10mil/season to an aging injury prone S?

    I was half joking.

    But I wouldn’t extend Lawrence

    Older and more injury issues despite being the more valuable position on most teams

    And anyone who wants to pay him a huge salary really needs to work on their evaluation skills.

    Exactly, he is one of the best safties in the NFL and he is a major playmaker. We desperately need playmakers and have plenty of money to spend.

    I think the deal was done long ago and Thomas signs the first day of the FA period.

    Extending DLaw very likely makes his 2019 cap hit lower than it was this year, not higher.

    If you make Amari Cooper the highest paid WR in the NFL next year you would only add 8 Million to our 2019 salary cap.

    First of all, if I ran the C Cowboys I would have weekly parties with the cheerleaders with an ice cream bar
    I would call Brittany Spears and say, "hey, baby I am rich, lass."
    Then I would buy a Golden Corral. That would please mum.

    Lawrence isn’t older than ET though, and I’m not sure we can say he has more injury issues than ET either.
