By this I mean it shouldn't matter what someone is getting paid, they should all have to earn their playing time. Money should always be just a bonus, not a prerequisite for playing time. We have too many players that because they got their money they think they will play no matter what. Well I think Jerry would rather win w/ a big money guy on the bench than to lose w/ one out there.
All this is for is becuase I feel the best way for our team to grow together and to improve together is to have everyone have a little uncertainty about their role. You think Roy Williams will work himself harder if he thinks he won't be able to play. You think Flo will take a play off if he thinks he is expendable. These guys want money and to get money you have to play well, and more importantly they have to play. I would be excited if in mini camps and training camp if every player feels like they have a shot to start. I want to see Romo battle Kitna for the starting QB spot, and for anyone that thinks Romo can't handle it, he can and has proved it. He battled his way into becoming the starter so it shouldn't phase him. With all of our WRs battling for 2 spots then everyone will want extra time making sure Romo and their timing is perfect. With our TEs Witten will win but MartyB will have more motivation to bring out the potential that he has. Our Oline will block better, Our Dline will play harder, Our LBs will train harder and learn more, Our secondary will be more focused.
And if a rookie thinks he has a shot to supplant a veteran they will bust their butts twice as hard just to have a chance and in the long run we will become a better, more focused team. If we have more focus we will drop dumb penalties, and it will help us get to where we all want to be.
What you guys think.
