Default Why I Love the Cowboys-Texans Should Watch and Learn!

The Cowboys had a great offseason in which they picked terrific players in the draft and anted up the big bucks for solid and expensive free agents that made an immediate contribution. The team has made big strides under a great coach.

With Flozell Adams going down and the team in dire need of a left tackle, they are working out Ross Verba. We'll see whether they sign him or not, but I like the fact that the Cowboys will do whatever it takes to win NOW, rather than make excuses and write off the whole season.

Bob McNair, watch and learn!

Ross Verba - Now there's a franchise saving delusional LT.

We're probably the team in most need of OL, more specifically LT, help and we didnt bite on Verba. That says alot.

I'm not saying Verba is a "franchise saving" LT. Dallas already has Flozell Adams, who is a two-time Pro Bowler. Verba is a significant upgrade over Torrin Tucker, who lost his starting job at RT to a 6th round draft choice this year.

If Dallas signs Verba, it would be an upgrade that would help the team win THIS YEAR. He would simply hold the fort down until Adams returns next year.

Say what you want about Verba, but he's better than any tackle the Texans have.

I expect the Texans to draft a franchise OLT in the upcoming draft, and hopefully some additional linemen. It is a joke that under Charley Casserly the team's offensive line still sucks after four years and amazing that Carr is still in one piece.

The Cowboys O line is definitely better than last year. Far from great but better

We're on the NFL discussion board here I believe. If it's not against any rules and the topic is offered you're going to get NFL discussion.

I don't know a thing about this Verba guy.

I don't know if you can point to a Bill Parcells-led team and generalize about free agent signings... I mean, the Redskins have signed more high-priced, high-profile FAs than anyone in the past five years and it hasn't done much for them. A little improvement this year, but do you really think they're going anywhere?

The FA market is like the lottery. Blowing tons of cap space on a top-flight starter typically leaves a team with little or no depth at that position (or others). When/if that star FA goes down, things become even worse than where you started.

Just my take.

Verba would be a waste right now. He is too expensive.

It seems like the Eagles and Patriots usually stay out of the high stakes early free agent period (with the noted exception of 2004 when the Eagles signed Kearse and traded for T.O.). They evaluate the left overs and grab them for less than market value. They also use the draft to restock as well. Since they usually are losing quality free agents and signing guys with less perceived value, they often get compensatory picks too.

In the end, they end up with a very deep team with few blaring weaknesses. You can see how they are able to keep the cycle going.

^^Yeah that^^^









I remember so many guys saying after we signed Bledsoe:

"I'm glad we have a fresh young team in Carr, Andre Johnson, and Dom Capers, unlike a bunch of old men past their prime like Keyshawn Johnson, Bledsoe, and Parcells!"



Irony rocks doesn't it?

GO COWBOYS!

Well to be honest here at the beginning of the year I didn't put my stock in the Cowboys signing Drew...I thought he had seen much better days and was all for them trying to get somebody in the draft and starting new or going with one of their younger QB's. Drew's been a pleasant surprise....and if he would quit fumbling center snaps he'd be even better. So I was wrong and Bill was right. That's maybe why the Cowboys don't have me on their payroll...

I guess he was. The Cowboys signed some guy that played for the Bears for a few years. I guess he's just insurance since Adams is out for the year.

So much for this theory - for now....

It appears the Cowboys are looking for a 10th offensive lineman. And while they did bring in veteran offensive tackle Ross Verba for a workout/visit on Tuesday, along with rookie Vontrell Jamison, it doesn't appear Verba is high on the Cowboys' signing list.

Bledsoe had his best years under Parcells. If not statistically, at least in terms of winning. I think he's scared as hell of Parcells and doesn't take as many chances! (That OT INT against Seattle aside...)

Yea I agree. Bill seems to bring out the best in Drew. Fear, respect, for whatever reason he does better.

Somebody told me that they saw Drew in an interview and he said he had gotten his bell rung right before he threw that interception in Seattle. I never saw or heard that myself but that was maybe the dumbest bunch of plays I've ever seen in football.
