    Evidently, Rick Smith is quite content with the deal they got from the Girls with Reeve being the top interception (4) and deflection (19) producer. My guess, part of the optimism for improving Reeves' "burn" rate, is that the new D philosophy will concentrate on agressive pass rush, which in turn will lend itself to a heavier "press" than tampa 2 scheme (as was at one time suggested by threetoedpete). At the same time, the Girls are hoping for a decent "return" on their loss through compensatory pick.

    nice find.

    very good to hear he is working out diligently, and sees the Texans as hungry and wanting to improve.

    Reeves said the mentality in Houston was not only different, but noticeable from the first day he arrived.

    "Yeah, we've got a good young team. We're hungry," Reeves said of the Texans, who went 8-8 last year. "The thing I saw when I got down there in Houston, rather than Dallas, we were a young, hungry team. It was real obvious that everyone there was working to get better. It was obvious."

    Great attitude ! I like it.

    I think with Wilson acting as Reeves' rear view mirror the whole season along with an improved pass rush we'll see the people who bash Reeves on here eat their words. Like it or not, he was our best CB last season and he's only gonna get better.

    From that article:

    I thought I remember Andre catching a TD over Finnegan. Am I wrong?

    I was pretty OK with Reeves last year. ANYTHING is better than Petey as a starting CB!! As has been stated on here numerous times, a better passrush will make our secondary look great.

    I am 100% sure I remember thsi as well. Maybe they attributed it to the S, but I don't buy it

    Great clips from McClain's article. Fans often don't see the production that doesn't show up in the boxscore:

    It suck's we might have to give up a draft pick, just because the cowboy's didn't want to re-sign him, how is that our fault? If that is the case I hope it's a 7th since that's the position he was drafted at.

    Do we give up a draft pick or are the Cowboys compensated a draft pick by the league?

    We don't lose anything. The Cowboys just gain something.
