      aside from that, im so psyched about this team.
      bring on the season. [IMG]http://*****************.com/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG]

      Yes, aside from injuries, I don't see anything stopping us. Especially in the NFC East.
      Eagles: -aging mcnabb
      -mediocre running game
      -so/so defense
      Skins: -Quarterback situation...? Do they have one?
      -O-line looks like ass
      -decent defense
      Giants: -Too many questions
      -Eli plays like he has a broom in his ass
      -NO TIKI. YES! I hated playing the Giants b/c Tiki would rack up 200+ yards per game
      -Coughlin is not the coach they need.

      Roster Cuts Include Veteran CB Aaron Glenn

      Glenn was scheduled to make $1.7 million in base salary this year, although $500,000 is guaranteed.

      IRVING, Texas - Anytime a team has to trim 22 players off its roster, there always seems to be a surprise or two.
      And while releasing a 13-year veteran who had started the last three preseason games is surprising enough, it's almost shocking considering it occurs at a position that has the Cowboys worried the most.
      But nonetheless, the Cowboys included veteran Aaron Glenn in their list of 21 roster cuts Saturday afternoon at Valley Ranch that trimmed the roster down to the 53-player limit.
      Other big moves included the Cowboys placing veteran kicker Martin Gramatica on injured reserve, meaning rookie Nick Folk will enter the season as the team's only place-kicker. Gramatica likely will be given an injury settlement in the next few days for a strained hamstring he suffered Aug. 25 against Houston. The settlement not only means the Cowboys would not be responsible for his $800,000 base salary, but wouldn't be able to re-sign Gramatica for at least six weeks, plus the length of the settlement for his injury.
      The Cowboys also cut three outside linebackers, including Junior Glymph, deciding to keep just three on the current roster. And among those three include Greg Ellis, who hasn't practiced since the first day of training camp and is still trying to return from the Achilles injury he suffered last year. Even head coach Wade Phillips said Saturday he is getting "closer" to ruling out Ellis for the Sept. 9 opener against the Giants.
      However, Phillips didn't say the same for cornerback Terence Newman, who has missed the last three preseason games with a partial tear in his plantar fascia. And the Cowboys certainly need a healthy Newman, especially after cutting cornerbacks Glenn, Joey Thomas and Quincy Butler.
      Glenn signed with the Cowboys in 2005 and reunited with former coach Bill Parcells, who coached him with the New York Jets. He was a steady contributor in the nickel defense for the last two years, leading the Cowboys in interceptions in 2005 with four, including a game-winning pick in the end zone to beat the Chargers in his Cowboys debut.
      Glenn hadn't been as consistent in coverage this preseason. When Phillips spoke of the team's concern at the cornerback position and his desire to find a suitable backup for Newman in case his injury lingered, the coach didn't automatically put Glenn as the clear-cut favorite. And maybe that should've been the first sign that his chances of making the team were in jeopardy.
      But just because he won't be on the opening-day roster doesn't mean Glenn has played his last game with the Cowboys.
      If he is not claimed by another team, the Cowboys could have the option of re-signing him after the first game of the season. NFL rules state that vested veteran such as Glenn is guaranteed a full season of salary if they are on the roster for the first week of the season. Glenn was scheduled to make $1.7 million this season, although $500,000 is guaranteed.
      But while Glenn has proven himself as a veteran, he didn't exactly help his cause during the preseason. That wasn't the case for a few players who were also released.
      Phillips said earlier on Saturday that the Cowboys released some players who played well in Thursday's 23-14 loss to the Vikings.
      Two players from that group would include wide receiver Jerheme Urban, who scored on a 95-yard punt return, and quarterback Matt Moore, who played more than two quarters and engineered a touchdown drive.
      The Cowboys also released fullback Lousaka Polite and kept Oliver Hoyte and rookie Deon Anderson on the roster.
      Let's take closer look at the current 53-man roster, which of course is subject to change over the next few days. But for now, this is how the roster breaks down, position-by-position.
      Quarterback (2)
      Tony Romo
      Brad Johnson
      Summary: For the second straight year, the Cowboys are going with just two quarterbacks. While rookie free agent Matt Moore was impressive at times in preseason, it doesn't make much sense to keep him on the roster, especially with so many concerns at other positions. Moore likely will be re-signed to the practice squad, but if he does get claimed by another team, the Cowboys might consider keeping Richard Bartel on the practice squad.
      Running Back (5)
      Julius Jones
      Marion Barber
      Tyson Thompson
      Oliver Hoyte
      Deon Anderson
      Summary: It's been a while since the Cowboys kept two fullbacks. And if they had more room, they might have kept Lousaka Polite as well. But Hoyte and Anderson are just better on special teams, which usually is the deciding factor in close roster decisions. As for the tailback spot, no surprise here. Now, the only question remains how many carries these guys will get. While Julius Jones has been the starter, Marion Barber has been impressive to the point where it should be a consideration to mix up the lineup. And Tyson Thompson could get some looks, but it's likely his main role will be as a kick returner.
      Wide Receiver (6)
      Terry Glenn
      Terrell Owens
      Patrick Crayton
      Sam Hurd
      Miles Austin
      Isaiah Stanback
      Summary: This is one position that might have been predicted accurately from the start of training camp. Glenn, Owens and Crayton have been set as the top three for a while, and Hurd has made himself a close fourth. The Cowboys were never going to part with Stanback, a fourth-round pick who hasn't had time to show his adjustment from a college quarterback to a receiver. Austin is simply better on special teams than Urban, and that likely helped him stick around.
      Tight End (3)
      Jason Witten
      Anthony Fasano
      Tony Curtis
      Summary: While Witten and Fasano have been locks all along, the same couldn't be said for Curtis, who didn't even open the playbook of the team's new offense until two weeks before training camp after spending the spring in NFL Europa. But Curtis simply outplayed the competition, beating out Adam Bergen and Rodney Hannah. Curtis should also be active each week because of his ability block around the goal line and cover on kickoffs and punts.
      Offensive Line (10)
      Flozell Adams
      Kyle Kosier
      Andre Gurode
      Leonard Davis
      Marc Colombo
      Cory Procter
      Doug Free
      Pat McQuistan
      Joe Berger
      James Marten
      Summary: The Cowboys went a little deep at offensive line, with a backup at every spot. But there isn't much depth on a second team that includes two rookies and a second-year player. And even Cory Procter, who should be the backup center, has yet to play in a regular-season game. But the Cowboys are counting on their starters up front. Tackles Flozell Adams and Marc Colombo have been brought along slowly during camp because of minor knee surgeries this off-season. But both have played the last two games and appear to be ready for the season opener.
      Defensive Line (6)
      Chris Canty
      Jason Ferguson
      Marcus Spears
      Jason Hatcher
      Jay Ratliff
      Stephen Bowen
      Summary: No surprises with first five spots. The only question was backup nose tackle, and while three young players had the chance to earn the spot, Wade Phillips said all along he could use Ratliff in that role. And although Remi Ayodele showed some promise, it wasn't enough to keep a roster spot. The Cowboys also like the versatility of Bowen, who can play both end and tackle if needed.
      Linebackers (7)
      Greg Ellis
      DeMarcus Ware
      Bradie James
      Akin Ayodele
      Anthony Spencer
      Kevin Burnett
      Bobby Carpenter
      Summary: This might be the lightest position on the team, especially considering two players are injured and possibly questionable to play in the opener. By releasing Junior Glymph, the Cowboys have only three true outside linebackers in Ellis, Ware and Spencer, though Carpenter has worked there as well. Burnett (ankle) and Ellis (Achilles) did not practice on Saturday but Phillips isn't ruling either player out for the first game.
      Cornerbacks (5)
      Terence Newman
      Anthony Henry
      Jacques Reeves
      Nate Jones
      Alan Ball
      Summary: The move to release Glenn is more surprising because of the injury and depth concerns at this position. The Cowboys have their fingers crossed that Newman will be ready, but if not, look for Reeves to get the start. Keeping Jones is surprising considering he hasn't played much on defense the last two weeks. Ball, a seventh-round pick from Illinois, has some upside, but probably won't be counted on to contribute right away.
      Safety (6)
      Roy Williams
      Ken Hamlin
      Keith Davis
      Pat Watkins
      Abram Elam
      Courtney Brown
      Summary: Some teams probably didn't have six safeties on their roster last week, much less at the start of the regular season. But again, it comes down to special teams. Davis and Elam will play on just about every package in the kicking game, and look for Brown to get some chances too. Like they did with Ball, the Cowboys probably kept Brown for potential and upside. He made some really nice plays in the preseason.
      Specialists (3)
      Mat McBriar
      Nick Folk
      L.P. Ladouceur
      Summary: The Cowboys might not be ecstatic about entering the season with a rookie kicker, but don't have much of a choice. With the injury to Gramatica, the Cowboys are turning it over to Folk, who has been consistent in the limited opportunities he's received. If Folk struggles, the Cowboys could look to a veteran, but it likely won't be Gramatica, who should get an injury settlement that would prevent him from returning for at least half of the regular season.
      Here is a complete list of the Cowboys' roster moves to reach the 53-man limit:
      Injured Reserve:
      K Martin Gramatica
      CB Aaron Glenn
      LB John Saldi
      QB Matt Moore
      WR Jerheme Urban
      DT Remi Ayodele
      WR Mike Jefferson
      QB Richard Bartel
      CB Quincy Butler
      DE Marcus Smith
      TE Rodney Hannah
      RB Alonzo Coleman
      LB Khari Long
      OL Matt Tarullo
      G Trey Darilek
      LB Junior Glymph
      WR Damarius Bilbo
      CB Joey Thomas
      FB Lousaka Polite
      LB Blair Phillips
      TE Adam Bergen
      RB Arliss Beach

      2002 turbo,
      whoa buddy, you are getting too excited about the Cowboys! Well, I think that we are going to see SOME improvements, but lets face it, it is a complete change as far as coaching goes, and it is going to take the players a season or 2 to get used to the new program. I don't doubt they could make the playoffs, but the Cowboys won't be strong, or "America's Team" for some time to come.
      I am excited however to see how they do, especially against the Eagles, since my mother is from Philly. Those games are always fun to watch. But, I hope that they start playing real football soon, or Jerry Jones should just quit, and sell the team.

    7. 09-05-2007 05:10 PM #157
      With all due respect, they have the players to beat any team in the NFC.
      With that being said, I hope they kick Giant ass this weekend [IMG]http://*****************.com/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG]

      well I guess Terrell owens would rather have Mcnabb or Manning be his QB? Pretty much said **** you to Romo the Homo

    9. 09-05-2007 08:23 PM #159
      Terrell Owens says **** you to everyone he knows/meets one way or another. To be honest, **** him. Catch the ball and run is all I want out of that player.

      I'll be the first to say the Giants are taking week 1, and the Cowboys are definitely NOT going to the Superbowl.
      If those two predictions come true, it'll be a good season for me.

      Glenn: Torn cartilage will require surgery
      ESPN.com news services
      Updated: September 8, 2007, 8:06 AM ET
      Dallas Cowboys receiver Terry Glenn will miss Sunday's opener against the New York Giants -- and possibly a lot more.
      Glenn, 33, told ESPN's Ed Werder on Friday that he has torn cartilage that will require surgery and is deliberating two options: Having season-ending knee surgery, or having a procedure to remove the damaged tissue so that he can potentially return in three to four weeks. The latter option, however, would not be a permanent solution and could expose him to the risk of severely hurting the knee again.
      "I want to play this year, and I really feel I have chance so I'm really leaning toward taking the [damaged] piece out and trying to play this year even though I'm risking the rest of my career by doing that," Glenn said Friday night. "I think that's what I'm going to do. I'm not sure, but I've played 12 years and don't have a lot of years left. I want to win now, and I think we have a chance to win now.
      "My Super Bowl chances are running out, so that's what I will probably do. But I know there's a great percentage risk that I could do that, ruin my knee, never play again and have to limp the rest of my life."
      Glenn missed all four preseason games after micro-fracture surgery Aug. 1 to remove a cyst from the back of his right kneecap. Coach Wade Phillips said the latest injury came in practice two days ago and "was not related to the original injury," but Glenn disputed that.
      "Anybody saying this injury is not related to the other injury -- BS," he said. "This would never have happened if I hadn't been hurt already."
      However, Glenn said that he doesn't hold the team's medical or training staffs responsible for the injury.
      "I don't blame anybody for this but myself," he said. "It didn't feel the way it should have felt, but the pressure and the hype of the season starting really got to me, and I was told I could not injure my knee further by going out and just running on it. I wanted to win the game for my teammates because that means a lot to me. But it wasn't ready and now I've injured it even more."
      Cowboys players say they have not been told the severity of Glenn's knee injury, but they expect his absence to be lengthy. Quarterback Tony Romo was attempting to contact Glenn after Friday's practice.
      "This is a very big loss for us," Romo told ESPN. "You can't replace Terry Glenn. He has special abilities and you're just not going to be able to replace him. But I have a lot of confidence in our young receivers. I've been throwing to them all summer. I really think Sam Hurd will step to the plate."
      Glenn, entering his 12th season, caught 70 passes for 1,047 yards and six touchdowns last year and gave the Cowboys a deep threat that helped Terrell Owens lead the NFL with 13 touchdowns.
      Patrick Crayton, who has 1,019 yards and seven touchdowns in three seasons, will move into Glenn's No. 2 role behind Owens. Hurd will be the third receiver.
      "I don't know who to blame, but I'm so mad," Glenn said.
      I love this dude! [IMG]http://*****************.com/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG] he's got heart.
