Re: Cowboys ST Captain/SS Keith Davis?

Weren't there some on this board that eluded to how the Pats needed an upgrade on ST?
Give me KD any day of the week

Calvin asked earlier whether you'd rather have Keith Davis or Kevin Burnett. Let me be clear up front that I have no issue with Burnett. It's too bad the Cowboys probably won't be able to keep him, because he can do a lot of things.
That being said, for this team right now, I'd much rather have a blue-collar tough guy like Davis. OK, maybe he's not a future Hall of Fame safety. He's not Ronnie Lott. We get that. But he is a guy who can play some defense and WANTS to play special teams. Not only that, the guy BLEEDS Cowboys blue.
Davis will be in Baltimore today for the Ed Block Courage Award dinner. This PDF is a list of all the winners this season. I'll never forget talking to KD after the Steelers game where he played through an injury. The guy could barely get his pants on without almost crying.
So give me Keith Davis. If the Cowboys had more players like him, I'm guessing the 12-year non-playoff streak wouldn't be that long.
BTW--do you see the Cowboys trying to extend Justin Rogers, or do you think they'll just give him a tender next year (he's currently slated to be an RFA, b/c he only signed a three-year deal)?
