Julius Jones is out for probably the next 2 months with a broken shoulder.

That wasn't the kind of news I wanted to hear on a Monday morning. I guess ReShard Lee will get more time as an RB.

The Cowboys had a lousy draft with this happening. He's out and the OL guy is out for the year. Lousy.

Did Houston have a lousy draft in '02 because of Carr's rookie numbers?

I wouldn't say they had a lousy draft quite yet. Injuries can happen to any draft pick at any given time. Besides that ignores the 1st round pick they got from the Bills. They way Buffalo is going it could be a very high pick.

I'd love to know what rookie they drafted that is making an impact this year...the Texans drafted Babin and Robinson and they're both playing. I don't see that with the Cowboys. Jones is out, the offensive lineman is out from USC and who else is there? I'm not up on all that but it seems from my vantage point that they right now are getting nothing out of this draft for the year.

serious, HUGE and all Cowboy fans I'm sorry to hear the bad news. I was really looking forward to tracking his numbers & success. Kinda puts a damper on the Steven Jackson vs. Julius Jones debate. One positive note I got to see a little College ball over the weekend and I really liked that back from Auburn, Cadillac Williams he reminds me alot of Curtis Martin, and I think we all know Parcells loves Martin & that Martin is currently still tearing it up in NY.

I am still wondering why Dallas traded down and passed up the chance to draft one of the other RB's that went before Jones...

They got an extra first round pick for this year from the Bills and they probably figured that with the Patriots, Jets, and the Dolphins with Ricky Williams in the division the Bills wont have that great of a record and it might be a really high one...

The extra pick from Buffalo may turn out to be the smartest thing the Cowboys did the entire draft.

Robinson and Babin were both first round draft picks that are filling "need" positions. Does Dallas have any players from that draft that fit this description? Most thought Jones was expected to take over the starting role as a 2nd rounder but then we signed Eddie George. So his (as our other draft picks) role became one of depth.

So if you compare the rest of our draft to yours...

Dallas:

Jacob Rogers - 2nd Round - Back-up RT.
Stephen Peterman - 3rd Round - (When healthy) Back-up OG.
Bruce Thornton - 4th Round - Secondary depth.
Sean Ryan - 5th Round - Cut.
Nathan Jones - 7th Round - Secondary depth.
Patrick Crayton - 7th Round - Listed on WR depth chart but does return duties.
Jacques Reeves - 7th Round - Secondary depth.

Houston:

Glenn Earl - 4th Round - I see he's made 1 tackle so far.
Vontez Duff - 6th Round - Is he even on the team?
Jammal Lord - 6th Round - Is he on the team?
Charlie Anderson - 6th Round - I see he's made 1 tackle so far.
Raheem Orr - 7th Round - Is he on the team?
Sloan Thomas - 7th Round - Practice Squad.
BJ Symons - 7th Round - Practice Squad or cut?

Is our's really so lousy?

I still think many teams had a much better draft than the Cowboys including the Texans. Depth is fine, needed and I understand all that but we'll wait and see how JJ works out. Right now his rookie year is a diaster with the injury and all.

I'll always believe Jimmy Johnson was the best draft day man the Cowboys had. Jerry stinks at it and I'm not real impressed with Bill either. But we'll agree to disagree and I'll leave it at that.

It's not going to help them this year with their RB situation.

Unfortunate for JJ with the rib problems, but I think Dallas will do fine with George and especially Lee. George hasnt been doing that bad so far after 2 weeks

Well if you are looking in the category of continuing declining stats, I guess not:

Eddie George 3.3 ypc
Troy Hambrick 3.5 ypc
Emmitt Smith 3.8 ypc

Each in their current or last year with the Cowboys. Man, with that kind of progress in 4-5 years you might actually manage to get a RB that goes backwards. Explain again to me why it was smart to get rid of Emmitt (because JJ wouldn't offer above vet. minimum) and smart to sign Eddie (for $4 mil)?

$2.2 million ($660,000 base + $1.54 million bonus). But I've already stated my opinion of George coming to Dallas in the other thread (against it).

As for Emmitt, several teams offered him the vet. minimum. Yet he signed with Arizona for a fat contract. Do you think he would've re-signed with Dallas had they offered a bit more than the vet. minimum? I don't. And at that point, it made no sense to re-sign him for anything more.

Julius Jones - 98 carries, 445 yards (4.5 avg) 5 TDs
Steven Jackson - 100 carries, 496 yards (5.0 avg), 2 TDs

And we got a 1st round pick. I'll take it.
