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.

    • But Luck’s career stats are bogged down by his rookie season (which passer rating hated) and a season in which he actually was hurt.    Luck’s performance from age 27 (his season before he would play with Reich) was much better than Wentz’s age 28 season (his season before he will play here). Luck was ascending...Wentz fell fast. And Luck was on a pretty poor Colts roster with a bad OL in 2016. Wentz played awful in a not too dissimilar situation.   Good, let alone great, QBs don’t just bomb their early prime seasons like Wentz did.    A bounce back season (from where Wentz was last year) into a legit top 10 QB is unprecedented. Not saying it can’t happen, but the smart money would be against it.   
    • I have us winning the Seattle game as well but losing to the Rams. Really no major reason but I can see it. Rams will be good IMO. Seattle will be good too but catching them early I think will favor us. We will see?
    • I think it's actually not as bad as it seems. I think there is going to be more pressure on our defense than on the offense. The Seahawks defense last year wasnt like years past, and their defense might even be worse this year. If i have the stats correctly, their defensive starters had a total of 22.5 sacks last year.... and 9.5 of them were from Jamal Adams (S)!!! Our OL, even with a sub-par LT should be just fine against them, and their secondary doesnt fare much better, even with Jamal Adams back there.  Their passing defense was ranked 31st in yards allowed, giving up 285 yards per game. Against the run, they were 5th in yards allowed, which is obviously very good, but our run game is a strength too, so id call that a push, maybe the slight edge to them in that dept, but not much. My point being, as defenses go, the Seahawks isnt a terrible one for Wentz to start against.
    • It can't but my point is that isn't the end all telling factor to how tough a schedule is. There are people out there that go by that only. A team could've played 8 playoff teams from the previous season but then played 4 teams that win 4 games or less and it skews is all I am saying. That would make your schedule look weaker than what it was. When it comes to the Colts I go by how many playoff teams we play and if we have at least 1 good opponent in our division that we have to play twice to how tough our schedule actually is. We have Tennessee in our division and play several playoff teams like last year.
    • How else can SoS be done at beginning of the season?
