    Don't know if that was it, but him AND Crayton can chuck the ball, surprising to say the least we haven't used more wrinkles with those two in the backfield.
    Didn't we have Crayton throw 1 pass? and didn't he chuck it into double coverage or something?

      Yeah, after I saw that, I never wanted him to try it ever again.

      But apparently we do have a play like that in our playbook. I guess they're satisfied with the way our offense traditionally runs.

      • Well we were planning on doing a lot of that stuff this year. WR reverse pass/double reverse passes and such...funny thing is, though...most were designed to be thrown to Hurd who was emerging as a good deep threat apparently in camp. A long strider like T.O., no one could keep up w/ Hurd during camp. Of course, you could try these w/ other receivers but, as LL said, Stanback has a hurt wing and we kind of fell into a hole after a while and didnt want to try such gimmicks, I'm sure.

        Thanks BoneKrusher^

            Hurd was being praised for his increased speed this camp. He's no Austin obviously in this department but, he was looking faster than Crayton according to numerous writers in attendance. He was burning people deep. Hurd is no burner by any means but, his short routes are precise...slants, outs, curls, w/e...they wont be done real fast but, his route running will be crisp and clean. On deep routes, though...his long stride really enables him to beat guys...it just takes him a while to get going. If Sammy didnt get hurt...he was probably in for a nice year. He pretty much split the #2 reps w/ Crayton in camp. Hurd's future changed quite a bit when he went down...as did our teams because, we probably wouldnt have went out and got Roy. But it's easy to say this now...Hurd could have very well struggled but, I do think he would have been solid.

            • Yea, I'm still upset that we didn't get to see Hurd this year, I thought he was poised for a really solid year.


              We may end up having to call up Travis Wilson from practice squad, the former 3rd rd pick from OU the Browns released earlier this season.

              • Yeah, I forgot about him...maybe even Coleman but, Stanback more than likely will get the nod.

                • Stanback is a fine athlete but a horrible use of the pick in that draft. You take projects in the 6th and 7th or FA signings not the first pick in the 4th round.

                  With respect to what Jerry and Garrett where thinking -- they weren't. They simply took another body to add to the mix in order to increase the probability one guy would pan (Hurd v Austin v Stanback) .... and as stated Austin has always been the best option b/c he is so physically gifted -- faster and taller than Hurd or Stanback. And as stated several times, you don't need Hurd and Crayton on the team -- one possession guy to work zones is enuff.

                  OT: Deon Anderson -- he sucks. I watched him closely every time he was in and he is not a good blocker b/c he misses the LB assignment more times than not. When he does touch the LB he does ok but you just can't wiff on an assignment as a FB and be considered any good.

                    Before I call the Stanback pick a bad one, I'd like to see what he can do when given the chance to showcase his skills. If the coaching staff refuses to do so, then I don't blame Stanback for not being a good pick, I blame the staff for making the pick. ...if that makes sense.

                    • Just saw this on ESPN/sportscenter, Adam Jones was re-instated, but probably won't play until after Thanksgiving.

                        http://www.dallasnews.com/sharedcont...o.161a4cd.html

                        A homeless man who goes by Doc was cashing in change at a Cinemark theater in Dallas when a guy walked up and offered to pay his way into the movie. Doc, who planned to spend his day passing out flyers for a few bucks, accepted a rain check before realizing that he recognized the generous gentleman.

                        "Was that Tony Romo?" Doc asked the kid behind the counter.

                        It sure was. Doc hustled across the street to the consignment store that paid him to occasionally pass out flyers and requested the day off. By the time he got back to the theater, "Role Model" had already started.

                        Romo, who confirmed the story but didn't want to elaborate, waved Doc over to sit by him and his buddy. Doc sheepishly mentioned that he hadn't showered in a few days.

                        "Don't worry about that," Romo said. "I'm used to locker rooms."

                        And so the $67 million quarterback and a man who doesn't have $6.70 to his name sat next to each other and shared laughs for 90 minutes or so.

                        For Romo, who made news by changing a couple's tire on the side of the road on the way home the night of the season opener, it was just another kind gesture to a random stranger. It meant the world to Doc.

                        "For me, it was a blessing," Doc said. "It came at just the right time. It gave me some encouragement and faith in mankind. I just wanted to say thank you."

                        • 1. Great article about Romo.
                          2. Excited, but anxious, for Pacman's return. As I said months ago (in my last post) for him to be suspended for anything more than what Chris Henry got would be ludicrous.

                            I agree. I wish our coaching staff WOULD GIVE the young guys a chance instead of picking up Vets with issues. WR, LB, CB, Safeties ........

                            In fact, let me go on record as saying I think Austin and Stanback are IDEAL 1/2 receivers if you are willing to take some lumps with the learning curve. Hurd as the possession guy in the slot too.

                            To me TO is what he is and on the downside of his career. To me, he drops too many passes and is a mediocre blocker who requires tons of passes to be effective. Roy Williams WR is fantastic but duplicative to TO IMHO. Good news however is that he is young and capable for another 5-6 years of being a #1. But Roy with the young dudes is more than Super Bowl material at WR and 9MM lighter on the payroll..

                            On the safeties, I would dump the two Vets (Hamlin and Williams) as well Henry. Save money and use it elsewhere, I would go with the young guys and give them time to mature. I think they are more talented than the Vets but again need reps. I am on record as saying I think Jenkins is a great FS prospect more so than CB. If Pacman can hold up, Scandrik, TNew is nice. Alan Ball as a #4 is fine too. Brown sucks though -- I would can him. He can't tackle or does not want too.

                            I would take this money and get a real NT (Cut/trade Tank), a young OL who can push one of the Tackles to the bench, and two starting ILB unless you think Burnett can cut it. On the OLB, bye bye Ellis and play Carpenter where he belongs as a SOLB.

                            So I would **** can some Vets ,,,, no problem.

                            • It will be interesting to see how quickly he gets back in the defense. If Mike and Orlando hold their own these next two weeks...maybe Adam is just relegated to punt return duties for the rest of the year. We'll see.

                              Thanks BoneKrusher^
