The Dallas Cowboys are just a month away from starting the off-season and some major moves have to be made so that they can stay relevant in the NFC East.  Here are my top-5 moves that the Cowboys must make in order to make them viable contenders next season.

Evaluate and monitor Tony Romo’s Health:

The Dallas Cowboys are publically saying that Romo’s health is fine, but fans should be very worried about the status of the franchise quarterback. First off, this organization hasn’t had the best track record of telling us the truth about the health status of their players. Also, remember the cyst from last offseason that made Tony miss the beginning of training camp? Now the sources are telling the media that has to do with the recent herniated disk problems that plagued him down the stretch in December. Now, you have a quarterback that is 34, two back surgeries in a year and we still don’t know how well he really is.  Monitoring Tony Romo is going to be the top priority for the franchise.

    bill callahan is still on the staff because he’s a great o line coach. Did u see how much this line improved after the 1st year. Callahan is the reason Murray had such a great year. And Carr will definitely not be cut.

    • Ehsan

      If you read close, I said Callahan didn’t do anything with the o-line, their assistant o-line coach did the work. Callahan was busy with putting the offense together. Also, I said Carr is up for a pay cut.

      • bill

        ok pay cut i agree with but how do u know it was the assistant that made their line good.

        • Ehsan

          Listen to the media reports and the sources, bill was focused on the entire offense, he had no time to sit there and coach the o-line. The assistant coach is getting all the credit.

          • bill

            still it was callahans zone blocking scheme that made the run game so great

    • ctcowboy1968

      Callahan and Kiffin should be fired. Kiffin was kept to please Marinelli. Murray should have been used a lot more. We lost several games due to the fact that Murray did not get to run the ball more. That’s the play callers fault. Who calls the plays? Callahan. Carrat Top screws it up even more. Then after the fact the morons say that they should have run more. Idiots! They preach balance, but never implement. Callahan sucked as a HC at Oakland and Nebraska. He was a good line coach with the Jets, but they had several pro bowl OL. His time is way behind him. His preformance in Dallas is awful. He has no purpose in Dallas any longer.

      • bill

        i think the reason they didn’t run the ball much was romo audibling it at the line to passes

        • ctcowboy1968

          I hear you. If that is the case, then the coaches need to pull him aside and get him to stop doing that unless there are 8 in the box. Everybody wants to take the pressure off of Tony, but maybe he likes carrying the team on his back.

          • bill

            yeah theres no way to know for sure

  • Scott.

    Can’t say I disagree with any of it. The problem lyes with Jerry making 5 smart decesions in a calendar year…

  • Old Frog

    Anyone who says it’s a good idea to let Hatcher go after the season he had can’t possibly believe it’s a good idea to keep Ware and his bloated salary. Get rid of them both.

  • Old Frog

    JJ is enamoured of stars wearing the Star and players spending their entire careers in Dallas. He wants a franchise QB, franchise WR, franchise pass rushers, franchise corners, franchise TE but he doesn’t have the money to pay them all. He needs to realize in the new NFL the only players that have a long enough shelf life to justify big long-term contracts are the O line…and maybe an outstanding QB and TE. Everyone else needs to get traded for draft picks when the numbers start to approach $5 million/year. Treat it like college – 4 to 5 years of service then move on. Just my 2 cents but then that’s one of the many reasons why I’m not the GM of a professional football team.

    • ctcowboy1968

      Agreed. JJ wants to emulate the Patriots two TE system, but what he should be emulating is their ability to cut veterans, even if they are contributors, due to money concerns.

  • ctcowboy1968

    Hatcher is going to leave. That’s what he wants. Miles has to be a 6/1 cut. Ware and Carr should take huge pay cuts. Coaches need to be fired. Do not sign Melton or Meachem. Melton is a huge injury concern. Microfracture surgery is a huge risk. Rather have a first round DT. Meachem sucked outside of New Orleans with the Chargers. Why put money into that risk? We always have money issues because of bad contracts and restructures. Time to bite the bullet and suck down the cap issues over the next several years. Don’t waste precious cap dollars on risky players or darft picks. Eliminate risk.
