Would you? (just for fun)

Recommended Posts

I'm undecided personally. Good OL, but we'd pretty much be screwed for any skill positions.


WR: Griff Whalen, Duron Carter, Da'rick Rogers (perhaps)

TE: Jack Doyle, Sean McGrath

RB: Josh Robinson, Tyler Varga


IMO I'd take my chances if such a hypothetical situation was available.

I'm split.


Half of me say sure, get the OL tank this year and grab a great WR like Treadwell or RB like Elliott then grab more playmakers later in the draft similar to our 2012 class. 


The other half knows this team is close enough to a super bowl, and that we can grab another lineman or two in the draft/free agency and our O will be set.

Nah. Lemme keep one of Moncrief or Dorsett and one of the TE's. That way we still have SOME reliable skill position guys. If I had to be specific, i say keep Dorsett and Fleener. I love Moncrief but I think Dorsett has the higher upside. And Fleener over Allen. Allen is a great blocker but that's not really needed if you have the Cowboys Oline.


And I like Rob and Varga. I like em even more behind that O line

So theoretically, my starting O would be:

QB: Andrew Luck

RB: J Robinson

WR1: Dorsett

WR2: Carter (or Whalen)

TE1: Fleener

TE: Doyle

That's not TOO bad for skill positions. Plus, it's still really young. No one older than 27

This is so easy, YES!!!

I guarantee that we would be a better football team with Luck playing behind the Cowboys OL without our skilled position players.

You give Luck time in the pocket something he hasn't had the luxury of having yet, and he will beat you 98% of the time with a decent or mediocre WR corp and RB.

It's so bizarre that everyone (including myself) unanimously uses Dallas as the measuring stick for a great NFL offensive line, yet Tony Romo ends up on the disabled list every season. But after watching the past 3 weeks, we've been soooo sloppy up front.


This is a really tough question by the way. I'd be willing to give up 3 playmakers for their interior, not naming any names though, it's too difficult to decide who to let go of.

Would you have the Cowboys OL...


if it hypothetically means we won't have the following players: TY, Moncrief, Dorsett, Gore, Andre Johnson, Allen, Fleener?




It's easier to find decent receivers than it is to find the o-line talent that the Cowboys have.


I'd make that trade......   and for the record,  I love all the guys you're willing to give up.   But the Dallas o-line is rare and special.

I would give up TY, Andre, Fleener, Allen, and Gore. That is a ton actually. TY would be the key in that trade for Dallas to make it fair for Dallas + Fleener and Allen are 2 Good TE's, Witten is older. Gore still looks good too and Dallas doesn't have a big name RB. I would want to keep Moncrief and Dorsett though, I mean we still would be giving up 5 quality players and TY by my suggestion.

Then who would we have on offense???


Luck with time to throw the ball, that's who.

Who was Edelman before Brady?

Who was Blair White before & after Peyton Manning?

A franchise QB can make a good WR out of an average one, especially if he has time in the pocket to pick the defense apart.

    • I can't predict how Wentz will be because as of now I have no clue. I am hoping for at least above average play at worse. Good I will take all day with the way our run game should be. I thought Rivers was on the good level last season. Luck was very good and sometimes great. I hate to bring Luck up again but imagine if he was our QB right now? I think it would be a two team race between us and KC to decide who wins the AFC IMO. I am hoping Wentz delivers bigtime. 
    • Yes....    our next office-season is going to be very strange and difficult.   Honestly,  it might make this off-season seem like a piece of cake.       And you’re right, lots and lots of tough choices.  We may have to let go of players that today might seem inconceivable.  There are stories hinting that the expected big rise in the salary cap next season is not going to happen.  It will likely now happen in 2023, but not 2022.    If memory serves.... The 2020 Salary Cap was $198m. The 2021 Salary Cap is now $185m. The word now is the 2022 SC will be $203m, a raise, but much lower than originally thought.   The big bump won’t hit until 2023 when new TV money fully kicks in.    If all of this is true, decisions may have gotten much harder.   That said, this applies to all teams, and the advantage typically goes to teams with the most money AND the best front office.    PS — Thanks for taking my post constructively the way it was intended and not personally.   Much appreciated. 
    • You are right on to search for an answer. There might be something in the library on Reich and his “Rehab of an Aging Quarterback” Vol. 2 or, the kids section “ Wentz Upon A Time”. It’s about a quarterback that got rescued  before passing Andrew’s record number of times being sacked or picking himself up after being hit by the other team. I have no idea what to expect with Wentz leading the Colts. I can’t wait until the season starts. So, here is the advice I gave last year’s QB...just score more than the other team, don’t make a fool of yourself complaining to the referees,  and most importantly, win the Super Bowl. I do believe our Defense is going to be exciting to watch and that is something to look forward to. Go, Colts!
    • Yeah I thought you were saying that DE had more athletic traits. Which is really subjective as each position requires a focus on one trait rather than another.   The RAS clearly does favor the DE in terms of which athletic trait is being measured.     
    • He was a long shot to begin with. Maybe he'll find a better fit. I know a few other teams showed interest.
