This is in response to a comment to the blog I posted yesterday. I was going to post it as a comment, but thought I’d share it with a larger audience instead. Here goes…
It’s OK to disagree. We all have the same goal and that is to see the Cowboys build a dynasty.
Dynasties are not built on a year-to-year strategy. They are built on a strategy that employs long term success based on moves that address not only the current needs but future ones as well.
You mentioned that the Cowboys needed an offensive playmaker and I remind you that the Cowboys had one of the best scoring teams in the NFC and certainly the best in their division.
Our collapse last year was on defense, NOT offense.
The Cowboys needed to shore that defense up and they made a major stride in doing that on Draft Day.
We have got ourselves a big playmaker on defense. If you love DeMarcus Ware, then wait until you see Anthony Spencer!
With regard to the 1st round pick in 2008, how will you feel if Cleveland does so bad they finish with a top 5 pick?
Are you saying this was not a great move by the Cowboys?
Believe me Cowboy fans, Jerry Jones is as shrewd a business man as there is in this world.
He built an empire by ensuring that his future would be better than the present.
That’s the way it works in sports as well.
The Cowboys are not looking for a one night stand in 2007. They are looking to reclaim the dynasty that we lost when we started playing from year to year and running in that same old threadmill.
We now have a strategy that will keep this franchise competitive for years to come.
It is built on young stars like Marion Barber (who was acquired in a similar Draft Day trade), Julius Jones, DeMarcus Ware, Bobby Carpenter, Tony Romo and others.
Our future is bright now and will be even brighter in the years to come!
I hope that the 5 people who read this blog will comment on it and let me know what you think!
