Current Players that might be Free Agents

February 11, 2009

Ok here we go first off I think that losing alot of these players may hurt, but may be the thing that the cowboys need to actually have a chance of going to the Superbowl or at least make some good shots.

At the end of each player will be a KEEP HIM or LET HIM GO!

OFFENSE

1. Brooks Bollinger/Brad Johnson QB- Bollinger as I remember watching him and saying better than Johnson, but we really need a better back up quarterback, Bollinger went 9 for 16 for 63 yards with a Touchdown and a Interception. Johnson as I remember lost to the Rams…wow. Johnson went 17 for 34 for 234 yards 1 touchdown and 3 interceptions. I hope and predick that cowboys pick up either Byron Leftwich or J.T. O’Sullivan. The real great backup would be David Carr.

LET HIM GO

2. Terrell Owens WR- There has been so much offseason blurr about the Famous TO. I personally think that it is best to let him go. 3 reasons why! 1. He is so much off the field drama that the team does not need. 2. Dropped so many catches last year and only recorded a low since 3 years with Dallas with 69 Receptions 1052 Yards 10 Touchdowns and 38 First downs. Lets for one second compare Owens with Witten. Witten had 82 Receptions 952 Yards, just 100 yards under Owens with 4 touchdowns. Not to mention that players like Miles Austin and Patrick Crayton I believe need a chance to shine!

LET HIM GO

3. Sam Hurd WR- Since he joined the team in 2006, Hurd has 19 receptions 314 Yard and 1 Touchdown. 2008 Rookie Tight End Martellus Bennett had 20 Receptions 283 Yards and 4 Touchdowns. Enough said,

LET HIM GO

4. Tony Curtis/Rodney Hannah TE- Honestly with Jason Witten and Martellus Bennett, I think that those two are great weapons for Tony Romo and I think that the cowboys should let them go and try to pick up another Tight End in the 2009 Draft.

LET THEM GO

DEFENSE

5.Chris Canty DE- Not much to say about Canty. He has recorded 10 sacks since his rookie year in 2005 and has 1 forced fumble. As bad as it sucks to let him go because of the great rookie cards of his, but he really averages 3 sacks a year. I think that he it is for sure.

LET HIM GO

6.Tank Johnson DT- Is he worth letting go? I would say yes because it has nothing to do about what kind of numbers you putĀ  up, but as a team player especially if Dallas wishes to go to a superbowl, we need the best and the most team attitudes we can get. He had 3 sacks and 1 forced fumble in the past 2 years with the Cowboys.

LET HIM GO

7. Kevin Burnett LB-Burnett has 4 sacks, 4 Forces fumbles, and 1 interception for 39 yards and a Touchdown back in 2006. I think that Burnett, Ware,Spencer, James, and if Ellis stays then we have a solid group of linebackes.

KEEP HIM

8. Zach Thomas LB- Not much that needs to be said but that 94 Tackles and no Interceptions and only one sack? I would say that it all depends on Ellis. If Ellis leaves who has been a cowboys since 1998 and offers wisdom and strength, then Thomas is key to keep. However, I think that we have to wave the fact he was not productive this past season and some other players will probably do better.

9. Carlos Polk LB-With only 1 forced fumble and 8 tackles, Polk did not get much playing time. If you were the coach would you give him playing time when there is Spencer and Ware out on the field. I wouldnt.

LET HIM GO

10. Keith Davis S- David only had 3 forced fumbles during his time with the cowboys. Yeah is used on special teams as times, but I think that Roy Williams deserves to stay rather than Davis.

LET HIM GO

11. Roy Williams S- I think that Williams is the key position where Dallas needs to focus on. If they let Williams go that leaves Walkins, Davis, and Brown. All these players do not mean nothing compared to Williams. There was talk that if Williams go they would move Ken Hamlin to S instead of FS. Hmmm I say keep Williams. He has been productive, 6.5 Sacks 9 Forces fumbles 19 Interceptions for 307 yards with 3 defensive touchdown. Yeah Williams was injured and did not play during the 2008 season. I say let him stay and extend a contract for 2 years. By then we can figure out to pick someone else up.

KEEP HIM

Go Cowboys!

December 17, 2008

I am very impressed with the Dallas Cowboys this year. Minus the drama from Terrell Owens…aka WHINNY! I watched an interview today on ESPN and he said that he never said that Romo was making secret plays with Witten. The Cowboys are 9-5 and hold a contending spot for the NFC Wild Card. I hope that they at least make they playoffs as most fans always wish of their team. I hope that Marion Barber recovers from his toe injury, but the rookie 3rd string running back carried the ball 9 times for 91 yds and 1 touch down and 4 receptions for 52 yards WOW. I have already obtained 1 AU RC and have already purchased another. I think that Felix Jones may be booted off the cowboys roster come next season or may even bumped down from 2nd to 3rd string. Choice just have not been given any opportunities to show his talents. My favorite Cowboys running back is Marion Barber, all time is Emmitt Smith of course! Look for more of my thoughts on the cowboys for the rest of the season. Note: NOT ALL BLOGS WILL BE ABOUT THE COWBOYS! Good luck to all the teams in the Wild Card!
