    I'm not betting against Jerry taking a WR in the first round.

    I think back to all the WR disasters on Jerry's watch.

    Trade the 2000 and 2001 number 1 picks for Joey Galloway, who immediately blows a knee in the first game, and is never a big deal.

    Draft Antonio Bryant too high in the 2nd round, who was being avoided by all other teams because they all knew he was a shit head. Jerry then anoints him the next Pearson/Irvin with the number 88, and he proves all the draft fears right by being the shit head everybody but Jerry knew he was.

    And then, what many consider the worst trade in Cowboys history (other than the already mentioned Galloway disaster), Jerry trades a number 1 and number 3 for Roy Williams (WR), and it never works out. Jerry even gave the worthless Williams a 54 million dollar extension. All of that for 2.35 catches, 33.1 yards, and 0.325 TDs per game.

    Yeah, I'm not exactly confident in Jerry handling this.

    Yeah, don't think I'd bet on it.

    And the fans just want them to draft good players, they don't care what the positions are (except for kicker/punter obviously)
    This needs to be the final season of Garrett & his staff. The greatest coaches on the planet should be candidates to lead the best org in sports. The days of teams blowing the Cowboys’ doors off in halftime adjustments needs to end. Time for change, new direction and a new voice

    From the mocks I’ve seen it seems like we would probably have our pick of all of them at 19.
    Seems the consensus is somewhere between 10-20. I still think Ridley goes before our pick at 19.

    It’s not like the next Randy Moss is in this draft. There is not a single WR that would be worth moving up for.
    I can hear the complaints 2-3 yrs from now, "why the hell didn't we move up for Calvin Ridley when we had such an obvious need at WR?????!!!!!!"

    Had we of waited till after the draft to dump Dez then at least the entire league wouldn’t know we are picking a WR at 19. Now any team that might want one of the WR’s know that they will need to trade up in front of us to get the one they want
    Not really sure I'd buy that. Everyone in the league already knew we were looking at WR's the whole offseason. They all also had a good idea Dez wasn't going to be here.

    Geez dude, that's going back a long damn way. I get the complaints but that stuff is ancient history.

    The Joey Galloway deal ended up bad, but I understood why they did it at the time, and at that time Galloway was one of the elite WR talents in the league. Jones and the Cowboy coaches thought pairing him with Rocket Ismail (after years of neglecting the WR/TE positions for Aikman) would make us a formidable offense again. Remember Irvin had also just retired. It ended up being bad because Galloway blew the knee week one (IIRC he was fucking blocking at the end of a blowout loss, dumbass coaching staff/Campo) and Aikman ended up having to retire after that season.

    They also overpaid for Roy Williams, but fucking 80-90% of Cowboy fans were dying to get that guy and pair him with Owens. Then in typical CZ retard fashion they all acted like they were all dead set against it when it went bad.

    As long as they are adhering to their board, I have no issue with it at all.

    They say hind sight is 20/20, and it couldn't be more clear. Dismiss at your own peril. I see a lot of excuse making you are doing here.

    Excuse making? Why, because I don't rue over every decision after the fact?

    I readily admit I was excited about getting Joey Galloway. I was "ok" with the Roy Williams thing but more that trading for him the thing I questioned at the time was the contract they gave him.

    In both instances though, I understood why they went and traded for them.

    The stuff that irked me far more than these two moves was all the bad drafting from 94-01 and the bad hires of coaches.

    Hey, Gays. The schedule comes out tonight. I only care about when we play Houston. Thats the only game in going to. I will gladly pay them to see the Cowboys play before I pay Jerry. I just hope �� the Dez release doesn't affect my abilities to sell tickets to the dumb casual fans.
