Default Re:........Dallas Cowboys thread

BengalBoy does raise some good points though. For a start, Al Singleton redefines the term 'anonymous' - can you remember a single play that guy made this year? Get rid of him for sure. Thing is, I can see Coakley going - he isnt big, hes getting older, but more to the point his cap hit is gonna be huge this year (am I right in saying $6m?). You dont pay that kind of money for an aging LB, no matter how good he has been in the past.

I wish James could just slot in (for either Coak or Singleton) but I'm not sure hes the answer either - he had his chances this year and, again (like Singleton), I cant remember him doing anything.

From that front 7, the only people I can definitley see returning are Ellis and Nguyen. Even Glover may be traded if we do go 3-4 (and I would absolutely HATE to see him go). This is why I want 100% defence drafting on the first day; we have far too many questions there to ignore.

As for Vinny, yes his stats are okay (especialy the yardage). I'll even let him off with all those ints he threw. My problem is HOW and WHEN he threw the Ints; throwing into double-coverage, right when we needed a steady head. I havent seen a breakdown, but I'll bet at least 66% of those Ints were within the closing stages of each half. We bought him in to be a steady influence, yet it turned out HE was the one who needed steadying. At least if you play a rookie, you expect rookie mistakes. NOT from a guy whos been in the league 20 years! >
