The team got a good group of players who wants nothing more than respect. And this year we got it. The team we are.

The Boys.

If they are counting on Glenn then I think they have a problem, if he's able to return, he'll be a shadow of what he was.

I too think we could have some trouble with Glenn. He may not be 100% even after all his rehab. But Jerry will make sure we have what we need to get the job done. Lets win a playoff game.

Glenn can and should contribute. His great hands are an asset even if the wheels are a little flat. Crayton and Hurd can be solid #2's if they work harder. Then Glenn can be used as a 3rd down posession type WR.

All reports indicate that Glenn is running hard and fast. Whatever Dallas gets out of him is really a bonus, as this offense scored 455 points without him last year. Would I like to have the deep threat that a healthy Terry Glenn provides? Sure. If he cannot provide that threat, are the Cowboys in trouble? Absolutely not. The only thing Dallas lost on offense during the offseason is Julius Jones, and with the combination of Felix Jones and Tashard Choice being added to compliment/backup the fearsome Marion Barber in the backfield, the #2 offense in the league last season only got better...

Don't forget about Mr. Fasano. He's gone now and so is our depth at TE. I think we have a great chance to be the #1 offense this year. If we were going to be #1 at something, I'd rather it be defense however.

Fasano is gone because he was unable to grasp the Garrett offense and had been surpassed on the depth chart by Tony Curtis. The Cowboys were paying a 2nd Rd pick to be their 3rd TE.

Hopefully, the reports of Bennett struggling this offseason are due to his inexperience alone, and possibly by midseason, he can supplant Curtis as the primary backup to Witten.

As for the defense, adding Thomas, Adam Jones, and drafting Jenkins make the defense immediately better. Tank Johnson should be a bigger contributor now with a full offseason in Dallas also. I've read reports that indicate he will give Ratliff strong competition at NT. That could be the best thing for the DL. Ratliff is more naturally suited for DE in the 3-4, and could rotate with Spears, Canty, Bowen (or whoever beats him out in camp), and Hatcher at DE, while still getting some snaps behind Johnson at NT.
