SCP

La'el Collins signs with Cowboys

Recommended Posts

If they can't look at each situation on an individual level, then they are making a mistake. It's like avoiding Agholor because Dwayne Jarrett sucked. They should put 100% effort into making this team better. Writing off an individual because of some kind of perceived precedent is careless. It's like saying ALL cops are racist because of a handful of bad individuals.

 

 

If this team is judging players based on the merits of what Greg Hardy or Rae carruth or whomever did what, then this team isn't the moral upstanding organization it wants to people to think it is.

 

You both took this to a different place.  I said if he did not feel comfortable with a player.........  Not just this guy but anyone.  Some teams do not care (Raiders, Cowboys).  The Panthers do and are not going to take a big risk on someone who has some concerns and is at a higher risk of being suspended, etc...and hurting the team.  Everyone is a risk...this team has chosen to have character important.  Makes for a better locker room, more team unity, etc.

 

This is not to say that Collins is not a high character guy.  Just saying it is possible there are things we do not know about.  And, it may have just been a pure football decision.   I am still going to trust Gettleman as he builds this team.  He sounds like he outworks everyone and watches probably more film than anyone. He has a plan and I think he is improving this team.  I consider him better qualified than anyone here to evaluate players and whether they will help this team.

 

One moment here Gman is a genius and the next minute.........

People forget, they still have Romo at QB. Doesn't matter if there was a brick wall in front of him, he stil sucks.

We got Oher who will be better than Collins this year. I will go with the veteran over fringe LT who likely belongs at RT. I have a good feeling about Oher. He has a lot to prove and if our coaches and front office believed enough in him to sign him then I do.

Hopefully it'll come out that Jerry Jones orchestrated the whole police questioning thing just to get him out of the draft then pick him up. Let the drama begin with that one.

Dallas has a 36-year-old QB with a broken body and propensity to collapse in big games.

Dallas has a terrible defense. Absolutely atrocious. Garbage.

Dallas is one of the oldest teams in the league and 3 of their most talented and important players (Bryant, Hardy, Gregory) suffer from mental illness and are never gonna be reliable.

Dallas lost their best player to free agency and replaced him with a injury prone RB that was a bust in Oakland.

Dallas spent all their high picks on OL for years. In another year or two they'll either have to let those guys walk in FA or spend the majority of their cap on OL.

Dallas has only won 2 wild card playoff games since '96. That's it. They haven't played in a conference championship game in 20 years.

Dallas has a egotistical maniac for an owner. He is the GM, President, Public Relations Officer - everything. Jerry Jones is a moron and runs a circus.

LoL @ the mass number of idiots praising Dallas in this thread. Then again, it's the same idiots that bashed Hurney for drafting Kuechly and bashed Gettleman for cutting Smith.

I can't believe people are actually saying Dallas is a contender and favorite in the NFC. They played a weak schedule last year and beat up on crap teams. They folded like a wet paper towel against GB. They are going nowhere until they get a new QB and field a competent defense.

 

 

You're mad.

 

Dallas went 3-1 against the NFC West, not a weak division at all, and spanked Seattle in Seattle. They did sweep the AFC South, but hey, that is a weak division that the Panthers play this season. Lost a close game in Green Bay by 5. Finished 12-4. It's going to be a great Thanksgiving game this year. Can't wait.

It's Oher or nothing, not really too keen on the idea.

Nor am I, but as was said above, he's a 28 year old (former first round pick) man and Collins is a kid, so at least there's that.

Cowboys line keeps getting stronger. Might have to draft McFadden in fantasy this year.

It's interesting.  Collins will get all the attention that the star provides.  I just think it's interesting what he thinks his future is.  The left side is pretty set with Smith and Martin.  The spent a high choices on their Center who played well.  They had two quality RTs with experience (can't recall if they kept both) so does he see himself as a RG?

 

I guess an interesting choice for Collins.  He could have had a shot at LT (and the future payday) here.

Not to disappointed we didn't get Collins out best chance was to draft him, but people keep overlooking the importance of a quality left tackle
