I don’t know if President Bush would allow Bin Laden to play in NFL.

Anyone know his 40 time?

Just think of all the strippers PacMan will financially help around the Dallas area. The man is a giver.

As a Giants fans I respect the cowboys talent. But I really believe they’re going to implode this year.

last year he was complaining about doing 80 on the way to training camp and when he got home he found out he had passed like 10 radar cameras and got cited by all of them adding up to a couple of $1,000 in fines. I cheered for the cameras.

Hansen should be handed over to the victims of 9/11. I’m sure they greatly appreciate the comparison of a football player to a mass murderer.

He’ll fit right in with TO, and his BangBros! connections.

Pacman is scum, the cowboys have never shied away from scumbag players. Seems like a perfect match. If you are a Cowboys fan and take offense to this, then you simply don’t know the Cowboys.

Can’t stand Hansen. What a jerk!

Obnoxious, self-righteous, know-it-all hypocrite.

Half the time he’s bragging about his own bad boy image (which he’s getting way too old for) and the other half moralizing.

Hansen-style?

I'll hi-jack and go on a mini rant: Dale Hansen... a hater of all that's Texas A&M football, along with his 80s partner-in-crime Jerry Oher... needs to go back to Iowa (believe that's where he's from) and live the life of a child of the corn.

Osama Bin Laden, Taliban Tech

Pros- Explosive first step, has the speed to stretch defenses. Reliable hands and isnt afraid to go over the middle.

Cons- Needs to improve route running. Poor run blocker and lacks strength to push off jams at line of scrimmage. Will disapear at times.

This is actually a good PR move right before the draft. Puts them in the spotlight for the draft. You couple that with those two first round picks and its good for the organization in a PR sense.

Whether Pacman will be a boon or not, it yet to be determined. TO has been a non issue since Parcels left. So, maybe Pacman will be a non issue, but as usual this is the last chance for a guy like that.

I was gonna post a new thread, but maybe not. My boss thought I needed a bonus so he brought me a Spingfield Garand and a couple dozen clips today. Had a tough time figuring out how to load the en blonc clips. What else should I know about using this rifle.

Damn, it is nice! And it seems SA does not offer them any more.

Jerry Jones has a mancrush on Darren McFadden. It will be interesting to see what moves Dallas makes to try to land him.

To: MileHi; Eaker

You may want to talk to Eaker about that rifle........:o)

Garands are great rifles. I have two , an old WWII serial number from DCM and a Korean War era serial number from CMP.

Eaker will probably tell you too stick with 150gr PMC ammo in that springfield. I do. Mine are old surplus SA and I think the one you describe are new manufactured rifles.

I have a few links I will go look up for ya !

From ProFootballtalk.com:

Osama has good swivel movement in his hips and very high overall upside. Should be a top 10 pick in draft.

Nor do you. Or have your forgotten about the fact that years ago the Cowboys refused to take Moss due to his attitude problems? Perhaps this is JJ's way of making up for that in his own mind.

This "experiment" will fail. But I'm hoping that Goodell will never even allow him to be back in any uniform anywhere.

Stand by ... the rumor mill is churning on the next chance for the Cowboys to get Moss.

T.O., Pacman, Moss. Man, it's tough to be a Cowboys fan these days. All we need now is Buddy Ryan as Defensive Coordinator. Ugh.

That is basically what I said. I did NOT say "the pass on one bad apple so their sins are forgiven" which is the phrase you used on your previous post.

I will agree that the Cowboys have had their "problem children" in the past (you can go all the way back to Hollywood Henderson and beyond), but all pale in comparison to Pacman. He's bad news.
