    Before training camp, Dallas owner Jerry Jones said the Cowboys had defensive end Mario Williams rated at the top of their draft board. Coach Bill Parcells said the Cowboys would have drafted Williams if they had the top pick. Parcells reiterated his feelings Wednesday. "I think I would have, yes," Parcells said about taking Williams with the first pick. "I think quite honestly, you know, I'm a defensive coach at heart. You have to understand that. "He has rare size and speed, and I think he's going to wind up being a very good player."

    Take off the steel blue glasses and this is just as bad as the RB articles.

    It's hyping players who haven't really done much.

    "Ooooo.... look at how he cut that back, and made that guy missed, even though he still got hit for a 3 yard loss"

    is not the same thing as

    "I believe I would have taken him with the #1 overall. The kids got amazing size & speed"


    big difference.

    What is hype about it?--it is one HC (who happens to be the next opponent) saying what he would have done. He doesn't play up anything Mario has done so far--just reiterates a pre-draft opinion.

    So what's your point? They shouldn't be compared but you decided to inject the comparison anyway? Why did you need to inject RB into this thread at all?

    That's what the article is about. RB isn't mentioned, but implied.

    No there is no mention or implication--you just decided to stick in RB needlessly. Here is everything stated:

    I guess it is an implied comparison to VY also?--not.

    It's about passing Bush and Young for Mario. It even mentions the draft...

    Oh my god--a question about a draft pick involved the draft. It must have implicitly required invoking other draft possibilities not mentioned and a lame attempt to claim it was hype on par with what any unnamed draft picks might have received. Whatever.

    I don't get what the argument is....Mexican T. are you saying that Parcells is doing the same thing for Mario that the media is doing for RB ???

    If so....


    That doesn't make a lick of sense....

    What would be his motives????

    I think this is a good post!!!

    Parecell is one of the elite coaches in this league and to have him support the move for Mario is very encouraging.
