        Maybe the cost outweigh the risk we have no idea and to think we do is foolish.

        Is Marc Colombo available? Lets just bring him in too. He's as mobile as a tree sloth stuck in mud.

        At 6'8" 360, McKinnie is going to need a lot of bushels of corn.

        Nah I think the better question is...

        Is there anyone available on the Dallas Cowboys or have the Cowboys cut anyone that can come in?

        I guess Ireland has been here so long that he no longer really 'knows' the Cowboys players so he's just winging it now.

        For what it worth, Draftsite.com has a 7 round mock draft up and has Miami selecting Cameron Irving - LT- Florida State at #22 in round #1 and Gabe Jackson - OG - Mississippi State at #54 in round #2.

        The part I that angers me is during the bye week. Philbin and company said Clabo had been put on notice about improving his play.

        If he was getting wrecked by decent NFL DE's what makes them think he will hold up against a monster DE like Mario Williams.

        It's like "Hey, Clabo...set it up ok, lets see some improvement, baby steps. Oh, by the way, Mario Williams this Sunday."

        On the bright side, at that size a weight, nobody will be able to bull-rush him, and to go around him will take at least 2.5 seconds by even the fastest speed-rusher.

        THIS year I don't fault Ireland for passing on a tackle because they've all struggled and I still believe Dion Jordan was the best player in the draft. It was a horrible year to draft an OT.

        He was doing fine until the end of the game thats what people are forgetting that had not given up any sacks until that 4th quarter.

        Yes no sacks, but he was getting destroyed the entire game.

        Sacks are not the only "stat" to look at. Right side of the pocket collapsed on a consistent basis, not to mention that hit Tannehill took when I thought he had been killed.

        Thats understood but it still doesnt make up for the first 5 games of garbage. He's going to get Tannehill injured.

        Absolutely puzzling as to why Garner is not playing.

        If we were going to do something like this, why in the hell didnt we do it 2 weeks ago?
        How about 2 months ago when he was still a free agent and we had him in the building?

        McKinnie is excited to be returning to the city of his alma mater, telling Rapoport that it's "great to get a chance to play" in front of the same fans that cheered him at the University of Miami.

        Also not sure why people are asking, why this move wasnt made during the bye week. Its plain as day that the coaches and FO wanted to give Clabo a chance. Its likely the team and Clabo had a meeting and in that meeting they told Clabo he was put on notice, and Clabo answered that he understands and will play better, and the coaching staff, as dumb as they have been all season, bought it. So two weeks and a loss later, they react.
        You mean "Its plain as day they are ****ing idiots..." Right?
