Dallas Cowboys 2019 Season Thread -- Aaaah Zeke Out?

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Couldn’t care less. Get him here, and cross that bridge when we get there. If anything, maybe it takes some of the “pie” away from Dak. If he’s here and he’s healthy and in shape, show me a fucking loss.

 

And either Chunn or Jackson would absolutely be here if they didn’t think this would get done before week 1. That’s as good a sign as any.

The odds anyone claims Mike White?  Low.... Don't understand why we wouldn't keep Chunn or sign someone after cuts over ALF.  He's done.  Get someone with some juice.

Really surprised they released wise, olumba, and Jackson. I expected them to keep wise, and one of either olumba or Jackson. Releasing all 3 is a bit of a head scratcher. I need to look at the final 53

Hard to know if we should be excited until we see the guaranteed number.
Why does it matter? Fans worry about this financial shit too much these days. Enjoy football for the entertainment factor. We aren't getting paid to manage the cap. They easily have the money to do what they want to at this point.

I’d rather have Brian Hoyer, who the Pats just released. I think he’s the perfect 1-2 game fill in backup that would be good for the qb room and all that shit. It’ll never happen though

hoyer released almost immediately after mike white becomes available.  

not a coincidence.

Lol Jarrett stidam played better than mike white and cooper rush combined this preseason. I hope he makes it somewhere, man. For your sake

Daniel Wise is the only cut I'm upset about.  Understandable but I don't have to like it

Yea, he can rush the passer.  Maybe PS.  Also... this surprised me.

Tavon is barely one...

belichick has just landed at DFW.  he’s making his pitch this afternoon. 

He wouldn’t be landing at dfw, it would be Dallas executive or Addison. 

 

New plan:  sign zeke and keep Maher, always go for it inside the 30. Maher can kick from 47-60.

Except last season the cowboys were the 2nd worst red zone team in the NFL with Zeke playing all year. 

Bottom line is the cowboys offense is bottom half of the league and atrocious in the red zone yet Jerry is backing up the truck to pay 6 of the 11 starters among highest in the NFL at their positions. Find mediocrity and overpay to keep it. That's almost as stupid as the Houston Texans. Almost.

Caught a little of the call-in -- or maybe it was the recorded part -- but Jerry kept sniffling when he was talking. Was very odd. Maybe he was doing rails off Jean's thigh in between questions.

Miles Jack was the other top lb with a bad knee injury along with jaylon smith, right?

he just got his big extension too.  Glad both could recover and play well.

Wow, I thought Wilson would make the roster.

They must be planning on using pollard some out wide or bringing back Noah Brown when healthy

It was Friday evening, right? Probably coked out and full of Johnny Blue by then.

Houston traded a shit load of picks for Tunsil, who has one year left on his deal.  They did not even contact his agent about an extension before the trade.  That's a move that would make Jerry blush.

Stupid contracts. Lynch as a backup would just ensure Dak gets injured because the football gods will not let you get away with this much stupidity.

the kind of move a team without a GM that is letting it's hot seat coach run would make

Think we should just roll with Pollard for Week 1 and see how the offense looks.
Zeke wants too much. Let him sit a week and reevaluate.
I think you mean table the discussion until after season like the chargers did....come play while you have 2 years on deal or sit all year and still have 2 years on deal when you get back

Cowboys were 10th in total rushing yards last year and tied for 14th on a per average basis. Teams with a running back by committee approach seem to do just fine provided they have an OL.

Another day closer to being able to see if the offense can win on Dak's arm without feeling the need to force feed a top RB.

No contract, no contract, no contract

He should have, especially considering he has return skills that are short on supply.

The Clayton Thorson  era begins.

 

Over Mike White?  I'm shocked he hasn't found a home.  I would have much preferred Cardale.

unless garrett has changed his philosophy we don’t need return skills.  last season we didn’t really return kicks or punts.

La’el Collins about to sign an extension similar to Jaylon’s per Charles Robinson and announced on 105.3 this morning

I'm shocked by this.  I guess Stephen thinks he's got enough money to do them all.

I like La'el and glad he resigned.  I read that the deal was similar to Jaylons  in that it's team friendly and player-friendly.

Can't wait to see the terms.

Surprising signing but Lael seems to love being a Cowboy. Hopefully team friendly.

I'm cool if the Zeke deal doesnt get done today. Feel like it would be a monster contract for an NFL RB in 2019.

5/50. 35 guaranteed

Seems pretty good to me

That's a really solid contract in my opinion.  

Also heard this morning that if we were to cut Tyron after this season, we could save $40mm in cap over the next three years with only $5mm in dead money.  That's something to keep an eye on.

I’m not going to pretend to act like I know wtf I’m talking about on this topic, but how is it smart to put that much money into the oline? I have no problem with Collins, and I think he’s a fine RT, but at what point are we going to have to let some of these names walk? Because if you put a gun to my head and asked me which UFA won’t be here at the beginning of next year because we can’t afford him, I would’ve said Collins easily.

I wouldn't doubt a bit if the Cowboys dangled Collins straight up to Houston for Clowney.  However, the injury to McGovern(sp?) perhaps changed the trajectory on what they were wanting to do.
