Urban has been disappointing to me. Stanback is exciting. Waykins is like glue back deep. Will keep a close eye on ratliff second half he is seei nd a lot of time at the nose. I just moved from upper decl to 3rd row behind the cowboys bench so keep your eyes out for me. Ill get as much conversation as I can but the dome is loud
His pro-day doesn't really have anything to do with it. His stock began rising in the middle of last season. Beaver fans openly booed him and called for backup Sean Canfield during losses to Cal and WSU, and then Moore put the team on his shoulders en route to winning 8 of their last 9 including improbable victories over USC, Oregon and Missouri. He showed tremendous heart, and an ability to overcome adversity. Despite his poor start to the '06 season, he ended the year with an efficiency rating of 140 while completing 60% of his passes for 18 TD's and 7 int's. He went 6 consecutive games without throwing a pick, and only threw 4 int's over the course of those final 9 games. Pretty impressive for a guy who was constantly being pressured behind a leaky front wall.
He's not as much of a project as some of you make it out to be. He's got a lot of talent, and he seemed to finally bring it all together last year. It's not unreasonable at all to rate him above some of the other kids in that 5-10 range of this years class. There are only a handful of guys with a lesser number of question marks hovering above their head. As a Cowboy fan, he seems like the perfect type of guy to bring in this year to learn behind Johnson/Garrett, and become the backup/successor to Romo. He would be an absolute steal if he slips to the 2nd day.
Moore will make the team...you cut him...you're going to lose him. They really have no choice...he's perfomed well, though...so, I'm not complaining.
Yeah, I think Johnson's age will work greatly in his favor. If we had a backup who might be around for awhile, then there might be a battle. But we need to start thinking about who our backup will be for next year and years beyond. Moore looks like he could be that guy. We've got some versatile guys on our team that should make it easier to keep 3 QB's.
Hmm...Miles caught some passes today but, Urban took one back for six. I might be switching here...Urban has worked w/ the first team punt return unit every preseason game...perhaps, he will unseat Miles for that 6th WR position.
