    Re: Zach Thomas to Cowboys.

    I'll only be disappointed if it's a cheap deal. Otherwise we probably should be happy that our FO still has its head on its shoulders.

    Re: Zach Thomas to Cowboys.

    i'd be wary of a guy coming off injuries who parcells didn't think could contribute to a 1-15 team

    but it's a nice story that he's going home

    i am hhoping michael turner gets to go home to chicago

    Re: Zach Thomas to Cowboys.

    Not a huge big deal to me as he obviously wasn't a perfect fit. His productivity, and having played for Saban, interested me though.

    Re: Zach Thomas to Cowboys.

    this isn't really an accurate statement. parcells had to deal with an existing contract and also the conventional wisdom would suggest that the parting was mutual.

    i don't think zach thomas wants to be part of a rebuilding effort... or complete overhaul of a team at this point in his career.

    he may not be the force he once was but suggesting that parcells considers him useless is not close to the truth.

    Re: Zach Thomas to Cowboys.

    it is probably semi like the donnie edwards situation in sd after the 06 season...but not quite to that extent.

    maybe parcells doesn't hate zach, or even feel he can't contribute, maybe he just wants to get younger.

    remember donnie going back to kc in 07, in his made to order cover 2 , he looked like crap when i watched him play

    maybe it will be different for thomas, he's going to a 3-4 , and i believe he's only got one year of 3-4 experience, last year

    Re: Zach Thomas to Cowboys.

    LMAO, whatever. If he was signed some of you would be happy. He wasn't the ideal fit due to size, but I think he could have worked here. Sucks they didn't get a guy like that, but they still have enough choices to make a move.

    Re: Zach Thomas to Cowboys.

    If we got him for that deal I wouldn't be upset at all. Like I said, I didn't think it would be that cheap.

    Seriously though when I heard "the Saints are the new favorite" I realized the guy has played in great weather for 12 years. How many guys, especially on defense, are going to give that up at his age?

    Last year was the first in which Thomas missed any substantial time and it was due to a concussion from a car accident.

    Re: Zach Thomas to Cowboys.

    I am sure being form Texas had a lot to do with his decision. This is good news imo. We need some young LB's to start grooming.

    Re: Zach Thomas to Cowboys.

    Uh, we would need young LBs to groom whether we signed Zach or not. Zach coming here would not prevented us from bringing young LBs into the mix.
