Philosophy:
Fit matters, players strengths must compliment each other
Team Identity is vital
It's about what a player will do, not what they've done
GML WRs are too expensive, don't spend too much in that market
Find a rookie in the 4th round you're comfortable starting
Works towards sustainability
Small gains stacking up is better than ripping off one guy

Goal:

Build for 5 to 10 years of competing at the absolute top of the sport.

Team Situation:

I'm proud of the job I did with the Cowboys, especially considering that I think this is a team that had maybe the worst offseason in the NFL. In February, the Cowboys were a team with major cap issues despite having a starting QB on a late round rookie deal, and they were facing major FA decisions. The real team lost Dez for nothing, were surprised by Jason Witten's retirement, and made essentially no changes defensively. Comparing my performance to reality is truly a night and day performance. I was able to overhaul all of the Cowboys weaknesses while keeping their strengths completely intact and a lot of thought went into creating a roster that was more than sum of its parts.



What I did Offense:

Moving on from Dak. It was perfectly clear to me that Dak was regressing and would eventually settle in as a the most mediocre QB the league had ever seen, becoming actually what everyone thinks Alex Smith has been. He didn't throw deep, he had to see a target being open to make the throw, and despite his mobility he had no ability to maneuver in the pocket to avoid sacks. Moving on though was a big challenge, adding the amount of salary to take on the kind of QB would take me right to the cap w/o resigning Demarcus Lawrence, not to mention the assets I'd have to give up to get to actually get a guy like that. Then the Aaron Rodgers deal happened.

It's always cool getting the best player in the NFL, and I think I got him a good price. But honestly, I couldn't help but question the move. That coming from my run first offense, I wouldn't be getting the full utility out of Rodgers. It's also my listed goal to plan for 5 to 10 years, and A-Rod is 34 and a QB that depends on physical gift more than either of the last 2 all time great QBs that went late into their career.

Trading Rodgers in for Luck and Lattimore was really exciting move for Dallas. Dallas is the absolute ideal situation for Luck who falls short only of Brady as a clean pocket passer, Luck has never had even close to the best Oline in the league and best running game in the league to protect him. Luck is a player who would be able to utilize the resources around him to raise him back to what we all know his destiny to be, becoming the best QB in the NFL.

Despite a million offers, I held onto my offense line. It's the defining part of this football team, dictating everything else that happens, not only on offense, but defense too. There were actually reinforcements for what is already the best line in football, moving Collins back to guard takes advantage of his elite pulling ability, and drafting Orlando Brown to start at RT immediately brings back a chippiness and physicality that may have needed to be reinforced. That and a couple of good and physical depth pieces (see Kirkland) and is how this line becomes not just better than anyone it faces, but tougher than them too. Zeke is also returning, so we'll continue to have one of the best RBs in football behind the best line.

My pass catching weapons are diverse and highly specialized. Dez departed due to an offer that I could just not refuse, a 3rd rounder and Braxton Miller who is a top 2018 break out candidate for me. I was not willing to get to involved in the crazy WR market, but I was able to hit everything I thought I needed.
A number one guy that's a deep threat(Sammy Watkins)
2 agile surgical route runner (Dante Pettis & Braxton Miller)
An X factor and big target redzone threat (Tyler Eifert)
A match up nightmare and great depth piece (Ricky Seals-Jones)
AND OF COURSE; Terrance Williams (who actually is good as depth)
Sammy is my guy, love his game. I want my best target to streaking down the field off the amazing playaction we'll have going, and I can't wait to get Sammy double the statistics he had in LA last year.

Eifert is another great piece, when he's good his entire offense has to adjust to handle him. But, maybe even more exciting, RSJ is the perfect player of high production as a rookie and low cost to step in if Eifert's injury woes continue. RSJ can also be used at the same time is Eifert. The variety in weapons is something ideal for one of the most cerebral QBs in the league, who tailors his throws better than anyone else to fit the intended target.



What I did, defense:

It's probably close on if this is the best batch of corners in the NFL, but is there any doubt they'll be number 1 in the next couple years? Lattimore, Jones, and Lewis are all on their rookie deals, and each tailor the needs of the others perfectly. To put the plan simply, Lattimore is going to have a Revis type of career, he's that good. CB is worth so much in GML and to get a guy coming off his rookie season that already played as a top 3 corner in the NFL and maybe the best in the entire league is a huge value. He's going to have a Revis Island kind of career, and he'll shadow the opponents best guy for the Cowboys for the next 10 years. Next it gets pretty easy, of the the two targets left on the field, Jones covers the taller one and Lewis the shorter and seemingly shiftier one. Each specialize at covering a totally different type of receiver, whether inside or outside that allows the defense total flexibility. To complete the secondary I traded for Jaquiski Tartt, another personal favorite, who covers like a corner but in the box plays run very well, a total eraser for the match up nightmares in today's tough NFL. Then there's my late round rookie starter, last year's was Josh Reynolds, and now we have Deshon Elliot who's game I love. Elliot is ready to play zone coverage in the NFL and thrive already, but it will be a nightmare if he has to play man on man even once. However, due to the 4 elite coverage players already in the secondary, Elliot will always be have the zone duties where he can use his skill set and noes for turnovers.

I don't believe in Jaylon Smith, and the Sean Lee cycle of reliance and injury needed to be broken. I did both. Both starting LBs gone, and I didn't sign Hitchens from FA, so this is a complete overhaul. Trading for Dant'a Hightower means I have a true Defensive QB running it all, and a great run stumper to help handle a defense which really exclusively build for the pass. Flowers is our coverage LB, a great example of a guy who's getting paid for what will come and not for the past. He has a great ability to match up on so many TEs and RBs, and once with Tartt now on the roster, a lot of pressure has been removed because its not Flowers responsibility to cove elite match up players. The corps is smart, physical, and has athleticism to spare.

Finally the defensive line. Losing Demarcus Lawrence was hard, but the change in system to not having the comp pick if I lost him in FA really hurt. Despite this change in rules, I was able to get a 3rd and Sammy Watkins in exchange for Lawrence, much more than losing him in FA one year earlier. If it's not clear, this is a team designed to play from front, with the lead. The Cowboys defensive line follows the old NYG approach of playing a 43 with 4 passrushers on the field. Collins is a gap shooter, very agile and gets early penetration regularly, he just lacks any passrushing moves other than fitting in between blocks. He'll play a pass rushing NT, then David Irving (who I and Dallas is stoked for, if unfamiliar check out some of the plays hes made) and Mario Edwards jr both start on the line. Both are interchangeable as DE and DTs with great ability to get after the rusher with imposing frames and weight. Both have a long enough sample of dominance where it has surpassed "flashes" but both have been held back in their career to this point. These 2 being so interchangeable will eat offensive liens alive. Finally there is Danielle Hunter, a young, lean, and lightning fast speed rusher who turns tackles hips inside out and may be about to take the step to being elite guys in the NFL. 2 true NTs are on the bench to rotate in to stop the run if it's bothering us as do other DEs, the depth good. But this league is about the pass first and foremost, and having 4 fierce passrushers with that secondary is going to put pressure on both ends of the passing game.

This defense is hellbent on stopping the pass, and relies on 4 down defensive linemen and an all-pro run stuffer at LB to cover the run.

This team is all heading into it's prime at the same time. I believe I've built a team that will be in the playoff for the next 10 years, it has an elite run game and oline to protect Luck, Luck just needs time under center not being destroyed and he will become the best QB in the league, and the defense is going to be scary against opposing passing games for years and years to come.

Any honors will be appreciated. I take pride that a lot of my roster improvements are due to a series of small improvements over time while working with the best GMs across the league. The job I did never sets around one big no brainer that anyone could of accepted, it's tedious but a lot more fun due to the prolonged negotiations that I have with all of you.

If you're bored and aren't ready for the season to be over I'll welcome all feedback and criticism of my roster here. Looking forward to some of the talking points, I liked my roster a lot and thought it was pretty nasty so I'm curious on what the roster holes were that prevent the team from reaching that top echelon.

I really liked your work. Specifically, your draft (Orlando Brown got me on tilt...Pettis was excellent pick), upgrading your secondary and your WRs. Truly, the only issue in my mind -- and I guess it's a big one -- is Luck. I think you got ARod for dirt cheap, it was a hell of a haul and a game changer. But then to go from Luck, when there's so much uncertainty about his future, was a huge drop. In a one-year league, I can't say I like going with Luck. Fetching Lattimore in the deal served as a really nice insurance policy, but the uncertainty at QB prevented me from looking at this as a Top 3-5 job (but safety Top 10).

Overall, this is a roster to be proud of. Those who like Luck's long-term prospects should love this team.

I’m on board with Luck (I mean he was my qb for a whole 12 hours this season ), Altho I grant you’re running a big risk there. Compared to IRL I love the work done at the skill positions, and while I don’t love Orlando I think he’s a nice buttress for a continually dominant OL. You don’t have any superstars on the DL, but you brought in a ton of solid pieces; that group should be good by aggregate, and you get your star power back with Donta and Marshon. I don’t love your safety group, but all in all you improved this defense by lightyears, and if luck can play you’ve improved the offense a ton too.

But then to go from Luck, when there's so much uncertainty about his future, was a huge drop. In a one-year league, I can't say I like going with Luck. Fetching Lattimore in the deal served as a really nice insurance policy, but the uncertainty at QB prevented me from looking at this as a Top 3-5 job (but safety Top 10).



Overall, this is a roster to be proud of. Those who like Luck's long-term prospects should love this team.


I guess I didnít consider the divide on Luck much until the voting portion cuz Iím still sold on him being a soon to be top guy at the position that basically just sat a year because he had a lingering injury that he probably could of played on but his party wasnít gonna let him risk it for the incompetence that team had shown. I looked more at it as being able to buy really low. I guess the only thing Iíd say is that even though itís a one year league, we donít really treat it like that, and my angle of aiming for sustainability was something I hoped could be as impressive of a job as a one year championship chase because I did that last year and I wanted something different.

I appreciate the feedback and real talk.
