My god, how did I miss this last night... He's an absolute stud.

Just have to hope his mental issues stay under control. :tippytoe

Certainly not signing GOOD ones. We got Marinelli choices like Cedric Thornton and Nolan Carroll when we did.
It is easy to blame Garrett but Marinelli had dirty hands in terms of the idiotic DL signings we had over the years.

Mayowa. Thornton. Jihad Ward. Kony Ealy. Demontre Moore. Stephen Paea. Terrell McClain.

There was a new slob practically every training camp.

I lol'd when I read that tweet. Trysten Hill is lucky to even be on the roster. If he were a late round pick he'd be gone by now.
I can't see a way he makes the roster if Gallimore has a pulse.

I would move him to be with his buddy Marinelli for whatever I could get.

For sure.

Marinelli's stank is all over the defensive line issues from the last few seasons. But considering how drastic a change we're seeing from the team in regards to their approach in FA and the offseason as a whole, I can't help but come to the conclusion that the team's strategy on improving the team via personnel additions/changes was largely set by Jason Garrett.

For crying out loud, we stuck with Maher till the fricking winter.

There are just too many instances across multiple areas of the team where we failed to or didn't really even try to improve, and considering how many positions and units this consists of, that philosophy could only have been set by one person.

I was actually looking up Everson Griffen to see if he had signed wih anyone yet when I found out we had signed him. TAlk about shocked, I couldn't believe it.

Look at what we've done to this Dline in this one offseason. Shattered the Marinelli curse straight to Hell. Love it!

Good point. Stephen is still the same. Jerry is the same. McClay is the same. Only one person has really changed.

Unless it was all Judd Garrett. :unsure
