Thread: We Reached According to the Cowboys

  1. #11
    Cowboys selected Travis Frederick with pick #31...so I'm not worried that they think the Steelers reached with some of their picks...

    why would anyone use the Cowboys as the measuring stick of good drafting? Everyone says they reached in the first so who cares what their board looked like.

    since jerry has been the GM - they've won ONE playoff game. that's almost 20 years now. Sooooo, their skill at evaluating talent seems suspect to me.

    did we actually examine the cowboy's draft? They had one of the worst drafts in the league... I wouldn't trust anything their draft board said...

    Let me get this straight...Dallas had Sharrif Floyd ranked 5th overall, and he was magically available to them all the way down at #18, and yet they opted instead to trade down to #31 for only a 3rd round pick??? How ridiculously stupid. This team is converting to a 4-3, and the most important thing for a team making such a switch would be competent d-linemen, and Floyd is a prototypical 3-technique DT in the 4-3. Not to mention that they got fleeced in the trade itself (getting the Niners' first and second round should have been the bare minimum they should have even considered...even then, it probably wouldn't have been smart if the 5th best player on your draft board is available at #18). By the time they had to pick at #31, all of their first round targets were gone, so they had to go with the biggest reach of the first round. Bravo, Jerry!

    you're right, they have one playoff win since then. after the 2009 regular season the Cowgirls beat the Eagles 34-14 in the divisional round of the NFC playoffs and then lost in the second round 34-3 to the Vikings.
