By beating the hell out of Romo.

That ain't happening.



Going to be tough to do when you need 10 guys in coverage.

I've heard this as well. The issue is whether Randy and TO could get together and play in order to make a run at the Super Bowl. With a signing like this the Cowboys could then use the picks on D and be the favourite going into next season. I can't imagine covering TO and Moss and Witten having to pay attention to Barber in the backfield. It'd be pretty much impossible to cover these guys. Beating the hell out of Romo? You going to have the Balls to send 5-6 guys after Romo with all those weapons running around the field? TO and Witten are not afraid to go over the middle if teams try to put too many guys into the blitz packages. It would be pretty crazy.


With all that said, there is NO WAY this happens. Moss will want a ton of money and TO I don't think would like being the second highest paid WR on the team. But if they both are really serious about playing for a trophy they may try to make it work. But I put it at less than 3 percent.
So they weren't the best...and may have ended the worst. SO WHAT!

Of course this has almost no chance of happening, but, NE does not like to be bullied by players into paying extreemely high salaries. Dallas has no problem paying the money. Moss wants a ring and if NE doesn't step up to the plate for him, Dallas also can give him a shot at the ring. Dallas has the balls to try it. If NE wants him they should make an offer quick and get it done. Once teams such as Dallas get involved it turns into kind of a bidding war, and NE doesn't play that game. If Dallas gets an offer on the table I can see NE letting Moss walk rather than being leveraged. I know Brady wants Moss back. They need the deep threat to keep Welker causing havoc. It should be interesting though.

Add to that Dallas having 2 first round picks... Wow.

Woa there Cowboy. I didn't say it would work, it just would be the only way you could do anything about it. You couldn't allocate the resources to stop those two, so you would almost have to concede it. cover them single, hope to just slam Romo as much as possible, even if it means a penalty, then outscore them.

I'm not saying it would happen, but playing conservative ain't gonna get it done in that scenario either.

Oh I see. Sorry, it's the Eagle fan bias in me to just jump to conclusions. :*)

I read something kind of funny from Whitlock regarding this. Something to the effect Eagles fans should burn down Lincoln Financial if they let the Cowboys sign Moss.

I saw that as well. I's a little silly. There is a lot that could be done. I mean, this is just devil's advocate, I don't know what could be done with BOTH of them at the same time. But lets' hypothetically say the Eagles did sign Asante Samuel, and kept lito as well sheldon brown, and got some pass rush going. It wouldn't be Easy, but the birds have had success against each of those guys individually.

This much is sure, you need to get to Romo fast and hurt him (not necesarily take a cheap shot, just pound him), and have enough firepower yourself.

It would be ugly though. Could happen, but I don't think Dallas offers a better show than New England to win the Super Bowl (pretty similar), and doesn't offer as good as a QB. So it's really money.

It's funny to think what could be. Even if you could somehow cover Moss and T.O. on the Cowboys, What would you be able to do with say? Terry Glen in the slot or Witten running down the middle. It would be something to see. On top of that say the Cowboy close the deal with Javon Walker to be the slot. Barber running angry in the backfield and catching balls out in the flat. What a show it would be. We can all dream a little...

I doubt they would keep glenn is such a scenario. Witten would be the proverbial welker in this scenario.

Would be ugly though.

Only one problem, and its a good one to have, is that the defense would be on the field so much, since Owens and Moss have different skill sets, they would score awfully quickly most of the time. Defense would be exhausted. Towards the end of the season, those snaps would add up.

Now the Cowboys can acquire Walker without a trade:

RotoWorld wrote:Broncos released WR Javon Walker, according to ESPN's Michael Smith.

He's a big name, but Walker's contract and knee injury made it an easy choice by Denver. That no one chose to give up a late-round pick for Walker is telling. It's rumored that he could need microfracture surgery in the future, although he will have plenty of suitors lined up with MRI machines. Dallas, Washington, Philadelphia, and Tampa Bay have been rumored to be interested.

I read Javon got released and was VERY surprised. He'll latch on somewhere with a incentive-laden deal -- hopefully with the Vikings.

Since the Cowboys just signed Crayton to a four-year deal I doubt they're all that serious about a 34-year-old Glenn coming off of a knee injury.
