Here are some highlights. Doug Fu asks ... So, we now see what happens when your GM is out trying to avoid a labor dispute, your team misses out on two safeties (Atoguwe, Sanders) that could help them. Any other safeties out there left? Also, Robert Gallery, worth a shot, or are there other alternatives out there? Bob Sturm: This is a frequent topic. Is Jerry too busy to negotiate a CBA and with a free agent? I think he has enough peeps to do both. My issue remains with his cash flow. I think his actions would seem to indicate that he is not printing money the way he once did. I think the stadium has hurt free agency - and I think he believed it would do just the opposite. The perfect storm with the economy has really hamstrung them. OJ Atogwe should have been the Cowboys solution. They had 0 interest. I think money is my only explanation. Dickie Laskiewicz asks ... Assuming there is at least a 12-game scheduled played in the NFL this year, do you consider this a make or break season for Romo sits to pee? Bob Sturm: I think this is big for Tony. He is now at that age where he needs to earn his keep on an annual basis. the league has no patience for excuses for guys over 30. he needs to be big. [OP: This is the annual mantra...:rotflmao:] Curtis asks ... Is Jerry Jones the worst GM in the NFL? Is he at least in the bottom third? Bob Sturm: I really think he would be better off getting someone in that spot who lives that position. I wish I didn't have to see pictures of Jerry in Vegas the day after he fires Wade. I wish I didn't know that Floyd Mayweather fights are just as important to him as watching film on free agents. I wish I didn't wonder whether I spend more time watching tape than he does. So, yes, his job performance to me is near the bottom of the league. I think he has talented scouts, but I think he is too divided to be great at what he does as GM. ---------- Post added March-7th-2011 at 10:03 AM ---------- Oh, lookie! Jerruh has cash flow problems inhibiting his free agency spending...because he spent so much on his stadium! Who has been saying this for THREE years and been ridiculed about it by uninformed, casual puke fans? :rotflmao: Isn't it remarkable that a Skins fan has more inside information about a rival's team than most of its fanbase?
