Ellis and Stanback – Oh Brother

Hello world! Been a while. I guess we’re all up to date on the latest out of Valley Ranch, so this won’t be a news posting, but rather some opinion on the happenings of the star.

So I’ve got two words for you – Greg Ellis; and now I have two more words – HA HA – are those really words?

Greg Ellis has been a pain in the butt for the past few years, since the season before he injured his Achilles. Does anyone even remember what his complaint was back then? Anyway, it’s not as if the guy hasn’t been a decent player for us, he’s actually been better than decent. But I agree with the Cowboys – it’s time to move on.

Now considering that he was the resident NFLPA representative, I actually more from him than to say after his release that he wished it would have happened a couple of years ago. Sure, he kisses enough ass to not be mistaken for a complete jerk by badmouthing the Cowboys. But it was still pretty low-class for him to insinuate that his last few years have been wasted in Dallas.

He made his only Pro Bowl coming back from that injury, and even with Anthony Spencer on the squad Ellis has gotten the respect of a skilled veteran on and off the field.

If anything, going to another team to start full time a couple of years ago would have shortened his career. As it stands now, he’s still got a fair amount of value left in the league and should find a cozy gig before the season starts.

Okay, so what’s with all this Roy Williams talk? Is he good, or is he not? How about Austin, can he step up like so many believe? Hurd … Who? And don’t get me started on poor little fragile Isaiah Stanback, I could fart in his direction and he’d be out a few weeks.

Let’s face it; the receiving corps in Dallas is at the beginning of what will either be a very long and painful road, or the turn around of the decade. At this point, if you believe all the media hype that is, our WR’s playing good this year would be more tremendous than what the cardinals did last year … if you believe the hype.

I for one do not, and am glad to see some readers here are looking forward to the passing game this year. I don’t think Stanback will be a part of it, I think he’ll be cut as soon as possible after he heels up. But let’s not forget the still missing piece of this team; there is one more player yet to be named that’s coming from Michael Irvin’s Fourth and Long. I figure it’ll be a receiver simply because we have too many DB’s as it is, and we are hurting at WR, yet none have been signed and there have been no rumors that a WR will be signed.

Yep, it’s only June, but already it’s interesting enough for me, for June at least.

What do you think?
