  • Wow... he is as close to Mr. Cowboy 2.0 as anyone will ever become. Since 1998, when I bought a Woodson jersey, Witten's is the only other one I've gotten.

      Talent wise they are definitely the leaders. You just don't usually see a lineman being a real team leader type. Most look towards the QB for that. And I honestly think Dak and Zeke sort of have a great dynamic off the field as well as on it. But you're right, the three best players on our roster might all be on the O-line. And hopefully we just added a fourth.

        Late thirties. Seems like yesterday to me but so does the last SB win.

          I thought pretty much the same thing. The job's on the table, strike while the iron's hot.

                I wish I had been around in the ESPN days.

                I heard they were crazy.

                    They were pretty crazy alright. All dial up modems and such.

                    • I'll say this, I'm a big fan of some of the potential that Schultz and Wells have.

                      Lord knows what goes on in Gathers head, if he wants it he will be a great player for us, but at the very least I feel confident that we have a stable group of number 2's who will be very good blockers in the 2 rookies along with Swaim and/or Jarwin.

                      We'll be looking for that explosive downfield element at TE come next offseason but I like the depth we have there right now.

                      • I recall after Witten’s first season and I made the statement that he had the potential to be better than Novecek. You would have thought I set a house on fire. There were a few members around then from that group but not very many.

                          Doesn’t seem that long ago.

                            Yeah this is Gathers shot at this thing. He has the ability to be an explosive TE. But he's going to have to work his ass off for that job. If he falters this year I expect an athletic TE to be near the top of my wish list next year. I'd love to see Gathers become what we all saw in preseason last year as a receiver. But there is also something about the guy I don't trust.

                            This is the Rico I want to see next year, minus the dumb ass fumble.

                              He is not the RKG. Also, didn't he make some idiotic statement during a preseason game last year about being the best TE?
