I knew we should have gotten a conditional pick for Henson. We might have been able to get a 2nd rounder out of it if he plays a lot this season.

When Bill Parcells hired on.

Has there been anybody on his watch that you've read about that had a drug issue?

Darn. I missed seeing LT in the Cowboys uniform when he played!

I didn't clarify myself obviously. I mean since he's been Cowboys coach....

and I'm asking, not being facetious.

Has there been any COWBOY involved or fined/suspended since Parcells hired on?

I think AZ is ok with their QB's.

D. Green doesnt care about Carter.

Legendary coke fiend Lawrence Taylor went unchecked by Bill Parcells for years. I'm sure if Carter could play, Parcells would give him a 2nd chance as well. There's nothing in Parcells' coaching history that indicates he takes a hardline on off the field behavior.

He didn't seem too concerned about L.T. snorting it up at halftime.

I was shocked at the news of Quincy's release, but had read enough on another board to know that whatever happened was very serious and more than likely had nothing to do with practice. I was equally surprised that the release was drug related, since he seemed to have been well grounded. However, if the reports are valid, the organization handled the situation in the best possible manner, decisive and swift, and we can now cut our losses and move forward.

With that being said, hopefully Quincy gets the assistance he needs, and even more so, young people as well as athletes, understand how addictions can rob what should be successful lives and careers. I understand because I use to be addicted to cigarettes, so I can easily advise for someone not to try any substance with the potential to be habit forming, even once.

Ok. I was wrong about Parcells. I'm not that familiar with LT and his problems because I just frankly didn't care about the Giants. But if the coach allowed it, knew about it then he was dead wrong.

Maybe he doesn't want to make the same mistake. Although there is no universe where you can compare Taylor's talent to Quincy's.

In a talent comparison of LT to Carter there was NEVER any doubt. Although I have never liked the Cowgirls it is a shame to see a man that was in a position of leadership faulter like that.

PS.... I do like the cowgirls better that the pathetic, underachiving, choking, Oilers. Once a punk Oiler, always a punk Oiler.

That was your fault for buying a jersey of someone who wasn't for sure going to start.


This is the best Cowboys news all year.

I'm not completely up-to-date with L.T.'s career. The question I have is how many times he tested positive for cocaine?...it's hard to cut a guy that has always passed a drug test.

The league was not doing drug testing in the 80's like they are today. He may never have been tested, or it may have come out "clean" if you know what I mean.

This was not a league drug test. It was a team drug test. That's why Mort said this might even be a bigger story than it is now.

Under the current CBA, teams can't give their own tests. Carter can rightfully sue the Cowboys.

I can't see them thinking they could keep this under wraps if they did test him and release him.

I wonder if his former teammates feel the same about him as Ricky Williams' teammates did. Considering both are no longer on the team because of drug use!
