  1. http://www.thebatt.com/sports/harmony-by-happenstance/article_595c33ee-5352-11ea-b425-c3c5833f5284.html Pretty neat little story by kinfolk about Harmony’s Rob Childress.
  2. So Dallas could go from Franchise Tagging Dak Prescott and Transition Tagging Amari Cooper to potentially only being able to tag one. Dallas goes from having both on the team in 2020 to possibly only one. Things could get crazier in Dallas.

  4. 7 teams? Still not enough to get my Cowboys in the playoffs.
  5. Personally, I think Dak and Danny are too high. Romo is too low. Don Meredith not making is strange. 1 and 2 are definitely correct.
  6. I have it on good authority that you will be able to keep your amateur status unlike some professionals on here.
  7. Charlie Strong has committed to the 2020 Class of the Nick Saban Rehab School. No word yet on which HC program he will transfer to in 2021. https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.cbssports.com/college-football/news/charlie-strong-joining-alabama-coaching-staff-as-defensive-analyst-for-crimson-tide-per-report/amp/
  8. Never wanted to go to Jerryworld and see the Cowboys play but I’ve got seeing a NASCAR race on the bucket list.
  9. 16 laps to go when they had “the big one?” How many after that, especially when they went to the green/white finish? You can’t take all the risk out of racing but NASCAR could do something about that imho. Hamlin still woulda won a few laps sooner and more than likely a few less wrecks happen.
  10. That’s good news considering how bad it looked.
  11. That’s one of the worst ones I’ve seen. Upside down and hit on the drivers side. Hearing Newman’s in serious but non life threatening condition.
  12. http://archive.is/r0xHj @AKA thoughts on Herbert over Tua?
  13. The “Faux-lers” Draft 57. Clyde Edwards- Helaire Running back LSU Carlos Hyde was solid but at 29 how much is left in the tank. If a o-lineman is there I’d figure BoB would consider that or a corner back.
  14. The “Upgrade the Secondary” Draft 17. Grant Delpit Safety LSU 51. A.J. Terrell Cornerback Clemson 82. Bradlee Anae Defensive End Utah Dallas drafts arguably the best safety in the class and follows it up with a possible replacement for Bryon Jones. Anae gives Dallas a pash rusher opposite Tank Lawrence in case Robert Quinn leaves in free agency. The “Tag Amari Cooper, Draft his replacement draft” 17. Henry Ruggs Wide Reciever Alabama 51. Ashtyn Davis Safety California 82. Darnay Holmes Cornerback UCLA Dallas takes Ruggs to come in and add a weapon to the offense for 2020, while giving a replacement for Cooper in 2021. Davis is in that second tier of safety prospects. Holmes could fill the CB3/4 role if Byron Jones and Anthony Brown leave. The “Improve the Defense Line At All Costs” Draft 17. AJ Epenesa Defensive End Iowa 51. Justin Madubuike Defensive Tackle Texas A&M 82. Brandon Jones Safety Texas Cowboys get help on the edge (Epenesa) and interior (Madubuike.) Brandon Jones is a day 3 safety upgrade over Jeff Heath.
  15. Gonna do a couple 3 round mock drafts with a couple different takes for the Cowboys....and I guess I might do one for the Texans. The Draft Network site has a decent mock draft simulator which I’ll use along with their in house draft board since that’s the only one you can use.
  16. Watching New York/DC and they almost had a full blown riot on the field after a fumble. One guy gets penalized for taking his helmet off despite a couple guys down with injuries and guys coming in off the sidelines.
  17. West Rusk’s Tyree Wilson is in the transfer portal.
  18. There’s some names that could be of interest to Dallas. Damarious Randall or Jayron Kearse. That’s the typical solid, not big money free agents that Dallas looks for. Delpit. McKinney. Davis. Winfield. That’s your round 1 and 2 safeties in the draft. Any of them would be upgrades over Heath.
  19. Roy coming down to make a tackle was awesome. Roy trying to cover wasn’t. Roy’s problem was he came along 10-20 years too late.
  20. I don’t get the current Tom Brady love. He’s 42, going on 43 this next season. His completion percentage has gone down the last 4 seasons. His passing yards have gone down the last 3 seasons. His TD passes have gone down the last 3 seasons. His passing yards per attempt have gone down the last 3 seasons. His QBR has gone down the last 4 seasons. The guy is in decline. The teams going after Brady are going more for the publicity and ticket sales than performance.
  21. At least we know what’s coming on 1st and 3rd downs.
  22. If Dallas trades Dak and signs Tom Brady then I will become a Kansas City Chiefs fan. I heard Michael Irvin say that he had a conversation at the Super Bowl with someone with big Cowboys ties saying that there’s talk of it. That would end 36 going on 37 years of Cowboys fandom.
  23. Stoney’s take: 1. Franchise tag Dak. Work on getting a long term deal made. I’m paying Byron Jones to stay at corner. Kid isn’t a turnover creator but he’s does a pretty good job holding his assignment in check. I’m letting Amari Cooper walk. Dallas got their money’s worth out of the trade but now’s the time to move on. Dallas could be in good position to grab a first round WR. Dallas could grab another Michael Gallup on Day 2. Cooper’s wanting money that could be better spent at other positions, especially if you are gonna pay Dak more than the $33m that he was offered last year and turned down. 2. Defense. Lotta holes need to be filled on that side of the ball. The d-line is pretty much gone except for Tank Lawrence and Tyrone Crawford. If Dallas switches to the 3-4 then Dallas could use some linebacker depth. The secondary is average at best and could get worse if Byron Jones leaves like expected. Dallas has to upgrade if they want any shot at playoff success. 3. WR is a sneaky pick for me if Dallas decides to Transition Tag Amari Cooper and not sign him to a long term deal. Get his replacement in here so he can learn and replace him next year. Thats what’s I would do. What would Dallas do? They have to go defense. Just like in free agency, Dallas has got to get better and that means adding as much talent as possible. I’m not a fan so far of the edge rushers in this class. The interior has some interesting first round talent if it falls to 17. Cornerback and safety should be there for Dallas. Fulton, Henderson, Delpit, McKinney. Pick Byron Jones’ replacement or the huge upgrade over Jeff Heath. Either one will work.
