But...he is home grown. From Texas, went to Texas, wants to be a Cowboy, excels in Monte and Marinelli's scheme...


TO is just googly-eyes over Shariff.

Yeah, he is. I like him too, but if we have a chance at Melton I wouldn't pass it up.

Absolutely. Will be tough to pry him away from Chicago, but would be thrilled to see Dallas find a way to bring him aboard.

Everything you said is valid. BUT...He's not Floyd or Williams. Laughing

And I kinda want a real DE next year, so I would rather focus on DT this year.

Shut up. I know this isn't logical.

I deplore drinking and driving. What Ratliff did was incredibly stupid especially in light of the recent Josh Brent/Jerry Brown incident, and as I understand it the NFL has a transport service in place for players who have had too much to drink. He should be fined and/or suspended for a few games. He is on the downside of his career but I think if he is healthy he could be a very solid contributor in the new 4-3.

Before you start screaming at me that I have no moral compass remember a certain WR who actually stabbed/slashed a teammate with a pair of scissors during an argument over a haircut? Said player and the team did their best to if not cover up the incident to at least keep it quiet. I don't recall the WR in question being suspended or disciplined in any way. Now some will argue because there exists no legal record of the incident that it never really happened. But we all know that it did. The player was Michael Irvin and because of his status and production on the field the team did what it could to ensure he would still be able to play.

Now Ratliff is not to the DT position what Irvin was to the WR position. As I said I deplore drinking and driving and what Ratliff has done. But I think he could be a player in the new system and I am willing to discipline him, get him any counselling he needs, and still give him an opportunity to contribute. Of course if physically he is a shell of his former self I will be the first to say release him. This is a business after all. But I want to see him get a shot to play and earn a roster spot because he could be good in a 4-3.

Reports surfacing this morning that Ratliffs BAC was .16 and that the blood draw was 2 hours after the accident. 2 hours would mean his BAC at time of accident was approx. .20!!

A man of His size would have had to consume approx 15-20 drink in the 3 hours prior to his accident.

I'd take them both. In a 4-3 under, three DTs are often used. With Ratliff old and beat up, we still need help at the d-line, and Sharrif Floyd is my favorite d-lineman in the entire draft. I wouldn't hesitate to draft him under any situation.

I simply cannot get over Ratliff blowing a .16 weeks after his team mate and friend killed another team mate in a completely preventable tradgedy.
What was he thinking?
Why did he not call a cab?
What did he not used the paid service?
Because he didn't want to leave his car there?
He was due to make 7 million dollars in 2013, how stupid can a person be.
How sad because before this, I was a huge Jay Ratliff fan.
Love the nose tackle position.

Don't forget though that we have a very young and very productive Lissemore locked up cheap for several more years. I agree that getting Melton and Floyd would be fantastic, but then it puts Price, Lissemore, Spears and Ratliff in backup roles when that money and/or pick could be better utilized elsewhere on the roster. I think picking up one of the two would be better overall.

Cut him. Take the cap hit and be done. Time to move on.
