Well, as painful as it was to sit through this season as a fan of the Dallas Cowboys I can’t imagine it feels anywhere near as painful as it would be to be a Broncos fan and have to have sat through that spanking. Nevertheless, the Broncos were in position to do something that Dallas can only dream about at this point.
The good news is now that the Super Bowl is done and over. Every team, other than the Seahawks of course, is back at square one to see who has the mettle to dethrone the new champs.
With the season now being over the only thing we can talk about is free agency and make comments about the guys we hope Jerry takes in this year’s draft, but my concern is more related to the guys we let go.
I’m hearing a lot of talk about guys like Mo Claiborne and how we are already declaring him a bust and how we should consider trading him already.
Now don’t get me wrong, I’m not defending his play over the past two seasons, but shouldn’t we give him a little more time before we write him off.
I make this argument because I feel like I might be the only guy tired of seeing Cowboy rejects going on to other teams and becoming not only serviceable players, but some of them even starters. Its tough watching guys like Anthony Fasano, Erik Walden, and even Martellus Bennett having success in other places.
I completely understand that there are several things that factor in to why these players may not have had success in Dallas. Whether it be immaturity, scheme, development by coaches, fit, or whatever else, but it just seems like we are doing a lot of the work for other people and not reaping the benefits.
So I think we should hold on to Mo, and to a lot of the other guys that may not have proven themselves yet. You never know when one of those guys might hold the key to becoming a contender.
