And has anyone else noticed that the Cowboys have had relatively no injuries. Compared to the Dolphins, they have been virtually unscathed.

That's HUGE. Decimate their o-line, LBs, and secondary before December started, and I doubt they'd have made the playoffs.

Colonel, Landry and James were both good picks, hopefully they will end up being great picks.

Albert? I was against Miami wanting him two years ago because of his injuries and the money he was asking for. Miami got him last year for more money than I would have liked them to spend, and he ended up injured once again. To be fair, that injury has nothing to do with his past; it's one that a lot of linemen get; couldn't be prevented. Now, if he had not been hurt, and although I still don't care for his high salary, it would be worth keeping him as he helped solidify the OL.

I always knew Miller was capable of doing what he did, but he never had the opportunity (i.e., carries) to prove himself.

Would I want Albert back? Miami is already on the hook for his salary, so he may as well return. I don't think he will be starting the season because of his injury, tho. So, what that tells me is Hickey is going to have to get another OT either in FA or the draft.

Guard position also has to be shored up. Is that guy presently on the team? I don't know. Maybe OTAs will provide the answer.

I'd say keep Satele, unless there turns out to be a money issue. If there is, let him go. I would want to put Pouncey back at the center position, anyway.
