He looked far worse than Wentz with a similarly inept bunch around him.

Just looking for a ray of hope, and I still think the kid can become great if they put the right players around him.

I was thinking about posting the same thing.

You guys got your franchise QB. Step two is to put the right pieces around him.

All we need is a Herschell Walker to trade for a ton of picks.

This OL is way better than Aikmans that year.

We've spent a much higher % of cap on this team than DAL had on that one.

Cap? There was no salary cap in Aikman's rookie year.

Excuse me? This oline is a hot mess, if Dallas' was worse in Aikman's first year it was not by much.
What we had to start the season doesn't matter anymore, what we got is a pile of crap.

I'll definitely admit that sped the process up. Still, you've got some pieces in place. You've got your franchise QB, and a decent offensive line. I would really focus on offensive pieces in the upcoming draft. Receivers known for their hands, a good blocking power runner who doesn't fumble, and some depth on the offensive line.

I am not convinced with Wentz so far but I am still hopeful. I agree with you on how to proceed. Draft heavy on offense. Give Wentz the time and tools to prove himself.

No. We just need to find an idiot GM like the viqueens had as a trading partner.

The moron thought getting Herschell was the final piece for them to win a SB, instead it was the trade the cowturds gladly made to win them multiple SBs.
