dammit, I was halfway through an off-season preview for this :rant:

then again half the RB's in the NFL got released last week (again going to my backs are a dime a dozen theory :P)

Maybe I'll finish it and put it up anyway... damn you Olympics or I'd have this done on time!!!

interesting take over on the DMN blog....speculation about Jerry being interested in Marshall with the 1st round tender (meaning he'll make about $3M this season. Most people think it wouldn't be possible or would be pointless with the money we have on Roy Williams and the money we will put towards Austin....buuuuuuuut....with the uncapped year it won't matter and once the regular capped seasons resume (which hopefully won't be after a lockout) then we could cut Roy and only have to pay $700k signing bonus as opposed to cutting him this year and having to pay like $9M...

Then again I don't know how I feel about Marshall...other than the fact that he's good...really good.

I'd like to think we learned our lesson about big mouth WR's that raise hell outside the lines....

Dallas needs line help BADLY, and maybe a safety.... this team is REALLY close, I'd hate to see a tinker drive it the other way

Not true. Derrick Mason is still one of the best receivers in the game, it unfortunate that Joey F. seems to only look for him at the expense of our other guys.

I figured you would get a kick out of this.

That would be nice... I think we'd have to cut someone to get someone though... or he'd have to make something like less then $4.5 mil a year or something since we made the top 8 last year....

I don't see Dallas needing to do alot besides replace Flozell, and maybe get a little more atheltic on the O-Line so teams like NY and Minny don't run Dumbo ragged again like they did....

the Pats are so signing Peppers......

I'm not going to lie, I'm worried about the Giants this year. An uncapped year is like Christmas for Jerry Jones and Dan Snyder, so I'm fuessing Dallas is only going to be better than last year. Washington can't not improve, and I think Shanahan plus a couple of good signing can get Washington competitive again, so I really have no idea where the Giants are going to land in the NFC East this year. Hopefully they shore up the secondary with free agency; I know the D-line sucked at times last year, but I still think they can be the best in the NFL. Draftwise, I'm hoping for either Rolando McClain or Jason Pierre-Paul, I think one of those two would be the best. Pierre-Paul is just a natural pass rusher, which fits the Giants perfectly and would further help the d-line and McClain would replace Pierce a couple years down the road, hopefully sooner rather than later. I wouldn't be surprised if both of them are taken before the Giants pick, however.

I would love to see the Giants sign Atari Bigby to an offer sheet, Green Bay has only tendered him as a second round pick. Bigby at Strong Safety and a healthy Kenny Phillips at Free Safety would be amazing. Their receiving corps is fine, as is the O-line, I think. Obviously they're set at quarterback, but I wouldn't mind having them pick up someone like Darren Sproles, because I don't like Ahmad Bradshaw as the #2 to Jacobs, who, in order to get back to where he was the season before last, will need a reliable number 2. I think Sproles would more than help there, and I love what he does in the passing game as well.

So that's my dream. Doubt it much of it comes to fruition, though. Most likely thing I see happening is them drafting McClain or Pierre-Paul (who is amazing at backflips, in case you were wondering :P)

Edit: Forgot to mention that Dunta Robinson would be amazing, as well. He's UFA, so I think there's a decent chance the Giants sign him.

As far as I can tell from reading the rule, the last 8 teams in the NFL Playoffs last year have to lose a Free Agent to gain a Free Agent. Since Dallas has no UFA's, they'd have to cut someone or let an RFA walk. NFL.com lists the Cowboys' RFA's as:

WR Miles Austin,
S Alan Ball,
DE Stephen Bowen,
DE Jason Hatcher,
DE Marcus Spears,
S Gerald Sensabaugh

Out of that group, unless they cut someone, I think Ball and Hatcher are the first out the door. A quote from this Offseason Roundup:

The Cowboys may not be able to keep Bowen, Hatcher, and Spears, who are key to Philips' defensive-line rotation. Expect Spears and Bowen to be re-signed.

I read earlier the Giants aren't even gonna get involved in the Dansby bidding because Reese wants to keep building through the draft. Fine by me. Mr. Dansby, there's no state income tax in Florida, and Miami has much better weather. Get your ass down there. STAT.

I don't see Dallas needing to do alot besides replace Flozell, and maybe get a little more atheltic on the O-Line so teams like NY and Minny don't run Dumbo ragged again like they did....

I want Adams out. I recently read an article, (I can fish up the link for you if you want), that said Jerry was considering giving Flo the boot. Perhaps the coaching staff thinks Adams is teetering on the edge already?

All I know is I saw a guy who was slowing down. I think he hits the wall this year. He's always getting little injuries (which are always used as an excuse for mediocre play), and maybe Jones doesn't want to give Flo a $5M severance check. There were times when only Romo's athleticism kept the opposing team's passrush from completely overwhelming the Cowboys, and Adams was a big part of that.

Something is to blame for the Cowboys' offensive failure last season. Yes, it was a failure. You get 400 yards on average and only score 22 points a game, you failed. The OL needs some serious work, and Flo is as good a place as any to start.

And it's not our $5 Million on the line. If the Cowboys' revenue is $250M or $300M or whatever it is now, $5M is not an insignificant chunk of that, especially when it's one player you may not have a lot of confidence in.

As far as replacing him goes, I think it should be done through the draft (although don't forget Free came in last year on RT and looked pretty fricken good). The four realistic guys I'm looking at in the draft are: Jason Fox outta Miami (Height: 6-6. Weight: 310.) Jared Veldheer, Hillsdale (Height: 6-9. Weight: 321.) Tyler Eastman out of Maine (Height 6-6 Weight 325) and Derek Hardman from Eastern Kentucky (Height: 6-6. Weight: 305. )

However, I disagree with the idea of cutting him. Keep him around. If you are worried about him being a "progress stopper", open up his job in camp or bench him. This is nothing like the Ellis and Owens issues last season where we had exciting talent ready to push out and the veteran was a disruption to boot. Free looks good, but we have nothing else at either tackle spot. I don't want to be deadly thin at the tackle position with this team.

Peezy is being cut because he blew last year and is due a roster bonus soon, but also because he's acted like a little bitch about the fact that the Dolphins want nothing to do with him anymore... he's aired dirty laundry in public, and the Tuna doesn't take kindly to that type of sh!t.
