What gives with the Right Tackle Position?

Why are the Cowboys not heeding Right Tackle issue?

What gives? The draft is over and still no action on addressing the right tackle issue. And yes it is an issue. Doug Free has been abominable. Tyson Clabo was available on the cheap. 3.45 million. And yet no action by the Cowboys. I guess they think quality Right Tackles grow on trees and can be plucked off any time they need one. Yeah give Romo a big raise, I have nothing against that. But if you don’t protect your quarterback and have a first rate offensive line what does it really matter? You are dooming yourself from the start. You won’t run effectively nor will you be able to pass effectively when your quarterback is flat on his back. With a better offensive line Dallas might have won a couple of Super Bowls in the last several years. Does anyone think Troy Aikman won his Super Bowls with an atrocious offensive line? Does anyone think Emmitt Smith became the all time leading rushing leader with an atrocious offensive line? No! I commend the drafting of Travis Frederick at center, but are the HMFIC’s that blind to think that is all they need to address on their sub-par offensive line? Tyrone Smith, Travis Frederick excluded.
