Gore 21, your friend in Dallas was just telling the truth, altho it was way worse than reported. Usually the draft is a huge sports holiday in Dallas, but with big Jer putting on an Al Davis imitation, they have had enough, and now Dallas nation isn't even half interested. Sportswriters, sports pages, talk shows, all have big jer in the toilet. His "well , I have won 3 SBs, so I ought to know what I am doing " has finally worn thin, and the cowboys are not just distressed, they are a mess. When my brother in Dallas didn't even watch or listen to the draft, you know things are wrong. I had thot all along this was just big jer's stupid hands on way...no I wonder if like big Al, if he doesn't have early to mid stage dementia. Unfortunately for them, he is the final word on everything, and his last 5 drafts have been outright disasters.
It would be interesting , no, if part of his problem wasn't just ego, but dementia? Dallas fans are pi**ed.
On Reid, vaccaro wasn't the best talent according to those HORN fans who saw a lot of him. If Reid IS, holy smoke. If not , well there's always next yr and or eleventy-seven FS/CBs currently on the team, with probably woodson headed here also. I guess we will know come TC. Moving up must have meant trent was afraid of losing his guy. Hard to know because none of us know what any other team wanted, and when.
Jerry Jones knows nothing, he had no hand in those three SB, it was always jimmy Johnson and after J left he was right, no talent came in or not enough, sure they got ware and a couple of others, but it is getting those players in the third and forth round also, now Jerry can't even get a plan down for the first. His HC sure isn't happy according to the rumors. Good, it makes fodder and helps teams like the niners.
As for Reid, you see a player you want you get him, even if there others that maybe close, it depends, even Pollian talked about it, getting a player that not only has talent but one that fits what you are doing as far as system.style of play. Whitner was a pick up to fill in the gaps, come next year (2014) he will be replaced by someone bigger and faster. Either by Dahl, Culliver or someone in the draft, maybe even free agency.
Remeber, how many times have we seen in the nfl, a player is a superstar or very good but goes elsewhere and is a bust, they don't fit what the team is trying to do, they are merely flash names that make fans go oooohhhhhhh and give hope but end up fizzling.
