Waiting for the other foot to fall.

        We all know that Jerry feels he has a SB contender. He wants it at home this year. So far in the off season he has done nothing to add the pieces to reach that goal. The releasing of  Flo and  Hamlin , although a good move for the future of the team really doesn't make it stronger for a SB run this year.  The Cowboys know the areas they need to improve to get to that next level. We know that Jerry will do something. What, how and when are the questions.

         I don't believe that even the best draft we can imagine will be sufficient to get  to where the Cowboys want to go on it's own.  Jerry no doubt is counting on players already in the system to improve and provide support to the front line players to make the team better for a play off run.  The rookies may get more playing time than in years past due to the success of  the younger players on the roster. Ogletree, Phillips, Bueller and others have played well last year even if it was only in limited action in some cases. I'm sure the Cowboy's draft will dictate other moves.  If Jerry goes according  to his nature there will be other moves.

         As mentioned in other posts, Dallas has depth in some positions and assets that could be used in trade for players that would fill the gaps for this years run. Should we trade for players or picks that can solidify the team long term. Jerry has also shown in the past no fear to enter the realm of  free agency.  I feel he has done well in getting good  fill in pieces, but poorly when going for the home run.  No names mentioned RW.

         So,if  as the title suggests we all feel to one degree or another that something is going to happen to improve the team for this year  what will it be ,  how will it be done and when.


          My own thoughts are that we may  have to wait a long time.  Jerry has been very cautious this off season. He may very well move around the board on draft day to get the players he wants or extra picks. Hopefully he will use the assets already on the team to aquire a player or two to immediately impact the team. Having said that, I can also see him waiting and waiting to pick up value free agents after June.  I believe he will get the pieces he wants to go into this season, but will it be enough.
