Do they really need him with Owens, Witten, Austin, and Crayton on the team?

Looks like they need a CB more than a WR at this point in the season...

I think he is T.O. insurance..

Of course, I'm not sure Dallas needs a deep threat for the next 4 weeks...Johnson does not exactly have the ability for the long pass these days...

These days?

He didn't exactly have that ability 5 years ago when he won that Superbowl.  If the Cowboys are going to make big plays in the passing game over the next few weeks, they'll have to rack up a lot of yards after the catch.

BJ is good at getting rid of the ball quickly though on short routes.  If you saw the Bucs/Eagles NFC Championship game a few years ago, that was how he carved them up, and more importantly, that was how the Bucs were able to avoid the Eagle's crazy blitz schemes.  3 step drop, ball gone.  If he can still do that, it could work.  It would also help a struggling offensive line.

Of course, the guy's so immobile, and so old, that he might be on IR by the second quarter this Sunday.

Or, maybe he doesn't end up playing at all:

The only way he plays is if it's not as bad as initially reported.  If it's really broken, and he plays (with or without a split) his velocity and control will be impacted, and he'll struggle to throw the ball, and to hang onto it.

And one bad hit, or exchange from center could make it even worse.

But that's why they have doctors... to help make decisions like that.

Wow. Roy Williams is a pretty good reciever but he certainly isn't worth 1st, 3rd, and 6th round picks. The Cowboys got hosed on that one.

Not if they win a Super Bowl.  How are defenses now going to stop Roy Williams, Terrell Owens, Jason Witten and Marion Barber at the same time?

Aren't they playing the Rams?  Couldn't he play with his whole arm tied behind his back and still have Dallas beat the Rams? ???

Maybe.  You just can't call any of these games this year - just last week the Rams got their first win by beating the Redskins.

Its been an odd year for that.  Still can't get over the Browns destroying the Giants on Monday night.  Dallas is doubly in trouble since Felix Jones is out - Barber is good, but youc an't just run him all day long.

I was going to be all smart-assed and say something like "I don't know, let's ask the Redskins" but, alas, it was too late.

No, that was still worth a chuckle.   ;D
