The cowboys are just killing us with their offseason,at least on paper,Thomas is a good pickup for them,if Julius Jones gets injured thomas is a good backup

Re: Cowboys Sign The A -train

This dosent bother me all that much. Thomas had one real breakout season, and while he is a good player, I dont think he is going to do anything amazing in Dallas. Their offseason has been a good one though.

Thomas poses no threat to our bad ass defense. Putting him in would be like putting in Eddie George last year... totally pointless.

Julius Jones worries me though...

I am not sold on that, I would be more worried about Thomas than Jones. Our D was tough against the run last year that is for sure, but when we played against teams that had bigger backs like the Ravens with Lewis and the Steelers with Bettis we had a tougher time against them than we had aginst like Ahman Green, Tiki Barber, and even Westbrook was held under 100 yards both times we played the Eagles.

If we can duplicate the same D this year that we had last year I would rather we played against more scat backs than power backs.

Re: Cowboys Sign The A -train

A Train could rekindle that type of running game again. I just hope it's not in a Cowboys outfit.

Re: Cowboys Sign The A -train

I'm not going to be talking shit about Vinny again until we can beat the Cowboys this year. He totally sodomized us at the ripe ol' age of 113.

Re: Cowboys Sign The A -train

Bledsoe worries me alot more than Vinnie does actually, sure he sucks under pressure, but Bledsoe isnt looking at assisted living homes, like vinnie might be soon..
Plus even though he makes alot of mistakes, throws alot of airballs, bledsoe also has that running tandem now to take off some of the pressure..The dallas o might be better overall..but man they made some crucial additions to their dfense this year also.
Do we have more to worry about in Dallas then we do the eagles and giants this year?

Don't we ALWAYS have to worry about Dallas regardless of how good they are on paper?

Which power back are you talking about? Anthony Thomas averaged 3.3 yards per carry last year behind a Bears offensive line that was considered pretty solid. Thomas Jones beat him out for that Bears starting RB job last year, and he's not exactly headed to the Hall of Fame. Anthony Thomas is not a concern and not much of a power back, he's 6'2" and weighs 225. I wouldn't put that physique in the Bettis or Jamal Lewis mold.

Julius Jones rushed for 4.2 yards per carry last year. He had 819 yards in 8 games. We did shut him down pretty well last year. Neither of these two backs scare me like a Brian Westbrook, LaDainian Tomlinson, or Priest Holmes.

Re: Cowboys Sign The A -train

Hate to say it but I think Jones could have a very big year for the Cowboys.

Again, I hate to say it but looks like Parcells was dead on with that pick.
