I like the draft a lot. But cutting Vickers for...?

not making $1.2m worth of impact.

Try some UDFA FBs and/or continue the McSurdy experiment.


Bold. I like it.


Did mcsurdy ever take snaps at FB? I forget...or is it just speculation?

It was listed as his secondary position in college. And during Training Camp he was given some Reps. He actually compares really well to Vickers in terms of physical attributes.

I actually kinda like this approach best of the three.

Dirk Gently wrote:
Bite-the-Bullet, minimum dead money version:

Restructure Carr as planned. Do not extend Romo.

Ask Free to take 50% pay cut or be designated for June 1. Cut Connor, Ratliff, Vickers, Spears, and Sensebaugh.

Sign minimum FA LB depth (Sims?)

Trade super bowl Winner pick 18 for picks 32 and 62

32) Barrett Jones, C/G/T
50) Jessie Williams, DT (1-tech)
62) Datone Jones, DE
80) Chris Faulk, OT
111) E. J. Manuel, QB
144) Ray Graham, RB
175) Michael Williams, TE

I know this doesn't address safety at all, but I think it does solid justice to both lines and, if Free plays ball, does so with ZERO dead money and nothing tied up in Romo (who may be extended in-season if things look good enough)


Next I'll do my all-in, swing for the fences one. Look for it this evening about 9:30 Dallas time.

For those non-geeks among us, Min-Maxing is a roleplaying concept where you do all you can to skate around rules, and take penalties that have little combat effect to make your character better in combat. A classic example is sacrificing a character's Intelligence or Charisma to beef up Strength.



Dirk, old buddy, this snippet here just made me love you all that much more.

Dungeons and Dragons I did not expect that out this forum. It's awesome but unexpected. I wonder if we could get Jerry Jones a scroll of intel +5 ?
