There are some people on this team who should not be here. Idiots like Olshansky doing his throat slash dance and saying he plays for himself and his family (not mentioning his teammates) is the kind of trash we need to throw out. Sensabaugh, who passed on a shot at Eli and made a business decision on Nicks and Jacobs and went on to say "I ain't getting fined", fits into the "too dumb to be a Cowboy" category. Some guys have lost their physical skills - Brooking, Davis, Colombo, and (I'm afraid) Witten and Barber come to mind. Then there are some guys who are good but are mysteriously having terrible seasons: Jenkins, Spencer and Ratliff fall into this category. Then we have guys who just don't have the skills to play competently at their position in the NFL - like Buehler, Ball and Scandrick.
Now, on the flipside, we have a few guys who are putting in a Yeoman's effort even in our losses. Of course, Ware is always great. I agree with Steve Young when he said "Dez should be the leader of this team. I want to follow him". But there are other players putting in the kind of effort we need. Here is what I think of the players putting in effort (instead of riding on talent):
1. Dez Bryant
2. D. Ware
3. Sam Hurd - Did you see the way he blocked on Dez's punt return? That was 110% effort.
4. T. New - Our one DB who can actually cover this season. Despite injury, he has been having his best year.
These are the only 5 I can think of that are putting in an extraodinary effort and producing results on the field. When we rebuild, this team needs more effort guys - more Danny McCray / Danny Woodhead / Danny Amendola-types. Who else is putting out a top-tier effort on this team?
