Offensive Rookies

I think JJ will BUST. I think he will be replaced as the starting RB by week 6 at the latest. Why do people assume a rookie RB, who most scouts had pegged as a marginal NFL player at best, succeed in DAL? Just because of Parcells? Give me a break. Is that potent passing game going to spread the defense? :-t

KJ, on the other hand really is a top talent on a team with a potentially dangerous offense. Sure he splits carries with Pinner currently, but Pinner was a 4th rd pick in the 2003 draft and has a total of 3 games on his NFL resume. I say KJ has the starting gig by week 5. ;-D

As for Roy v Fitz - thats a much tougher call. Give me R.Williams because I like the colors he wears.

I dont disagree that KJ is a talent and will eventually start, but Pinner would have been a 1st rd pick if he didnt get hurt in the senior bowl.

As for JJ, the expectations are high b/c Hambrick almost got 1000 yds there. HAMBRICK! If Hambrick can basically get 1000 yds, Im sure Julius can. And who would they replace him with? There really arent any other RBs on DAL. Nobody think JJ is going to get 1600 yds and 20 TDs, but he should put up a nice season

I think on any other team you may be right. But seriously who are the Cowboys going to replace him with. He is the undisputed starter with no one behind him that can or will push him. Thats the only reason people are so high on him. I agree with you though he wont be anything special. I'd take KJ over him in a rooie draft. I think it's a bigger debate between Jackson and KJ. Who is the guy to take here.

As for Fitz and Roy, I like Roy. I don't know why just do. I can see Harrington becoming a better QB than anything Arizona will through out there.
So they weren't the best...and may have ended the worst. SO WHAT!

Watch Dallas sign another Rb before the season starts.

Yeah but who's out there that the Cowboys can sign that will really push him for PT? George may come available but I don't see him as being the answer.

But really now can anyone see them doing a good job ever again?

I dont think they will ever start again, I was just throwing out the names of the potential candidates. DAL does need a veteran backup, but I really dont see anyone availbale able to take the job away from JJ.

They could sign antowain smith or james stewart...not superstars but would add depth and could vulture yards and Tds from if not his starting job.

Julius Jones early in the season. Kevin Jones late in the season. I wouldnt draft or trade for either WR this year.
