David Irving hitting FA

Recommended Posts

The Guy can certainly play, but the Cowboys are moving on for a reason.  This guy has trouble getting on the field. Between injuries, and suspensions. I say pass.

If the Cowboys turf a player because of his the off field problems then stay away.  Jerry Jones is king of giving guys 2nd, 3rd and 4th chances.

Sounds like he's probably facing another long suspension.

I was an advocate of trading for him last off season, due to potential (and at the time his "I have grown up/reformed stance" ) but now that a season has passed nothing really changed for him....He could be a phenomenal force on the D-line for us......but he is apparently just as disruptive in his personal life as he is on the field......that's too bad.....sometimes those types of players eventually "get it" and it clicks, and they change, and sometimes they never get it......and its a train wreck signing.....if we could turn him loose on the field and then put him in stasis after each game and transport him to the next venue and  bring him out of it at the start of the next game, I am all for it lol

Suspended indefinitely.  

 

That's pretty long.

He's hitting something. Not free agency, but something. :funny:

He’ll be broke and crying in a year or so, hoping to get reinstated.

Had he stuck it out and made it through one more year, had he gotten one contract, he would have been set for life.

"According to a 2009 Sports Illustrated article, 78% of National Football League (NFL) players are either bankrupt or are under financial stress within two years of retirement."

 

Sounds like he'll fit in nicely with this statistic.

Everyone takes a stand for something (Gun Control, abortion rights, Surveillance). Why is this any different? Because hes a football player? So what about Robert Kraft having sex with under age girls? wait a min... Don't do that, Don't talk about that! The hypocrisy is real. 

 

The worse thing you can do beyond being hooked on Heroin (its a mental health issue, I know lol BTW A good friend of mine passed from Over dosing) is smoking the same stuff the same Heroin doctors give you that's not Heroin called... What about cigarettes and alcohol? these kill more people than... I support David Irving and people like him.

He was suspended for performance enhancers, too.  Who knows why he's skipping tests - weed or roids?

    • We were discussing the overreaction to the tweet not the play         
    • My God, you're right...   It's a conspiracy, man.   If Reich know tha hez company loyal to stand by the nonsense and the obvimously lack of talent an holes on diz roster then then he knows that if he shows JB can't reaf his progrezions den the opposing teams will have the advantage! Reich try to tank for a top 10 pick! We all know it!   BACK TO THE PILE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!               *I lost today's internal battle, because of my brother to the north...

    • If VM is saying it, it's likely because he's parroting what management is saying. Not saying it's not true, or true, just saying there's always a narrative. 
    • The lack of light front carries is either play calling, or JB's choice. Light front carries may also be down simply because of down and distance when facing light fronts. I'm guessing this goes at least partly to JB's struggles with reading Ds.   And using "stacked box" stats are very imperfect. It's not always about what how many are in the box, it's what those guys do when the ball is snapped. The stacked box stat typically only measures 8+ defenders in the box at the time of snap. What it doesn't tell you is what the front seven does. Do the LBs play the run or go into coverage is the more accurate measurement, along with how much nickel and dime coverage you see.    If I were a D vs JB, I'd go standard package (no nickel/dime) most of the time, and have the LBs play run or shallow crossing, which is what we are generally seeing. 4 DBs on standard downs is sufficient vs our current O.  I'm going to say Reich and JB are making it more predictable. If the passing game is more successful, and the play calling isn't as conservative, we're not having this problem at all. Like I said in a previous post, very few team have RB1s that are dynamic in both running and passing. And honestly that's not Reich's O. Mack is 12 of 14 (yes only 14), so he's been very reliable. It's more lack of targets and play calling if anything.  He is an APB. An APB does not run it between the tackles often, and that's what Reich typically calls for him... An APB is a change of pace back that is usually more edge, sweep, receiving,  and gimmicky. I'd say his "average" play, is a product of use type. White rushing is 32 attempts for 104 yards, and a 3.3 average. Hines is 22 for 66 and 3.0 with mostly between the T rushes. Last year with Luck, Hines was 85/315 and 3.7 rushing.... do you see the difference....  Yes it's rare to have a stud #1 RB that excels in both. I think we are under utilizing Mack in the passing game, and I think Hines is hampered by both rush play calling, and by JB in the passing game. That's what they numbers suggest anyway.
