Offseason Has Begun

With the Steelers having won the Super Bowl in the most dramatic fashion just about possible (Kurt Warner's last play wasn't a fumble), the Cowboys offseason has officially begun.
Here are a few items on the Cowboys' to-do list:

1. Either hire a defensive coordinator or Wade Phillips should just give himself the title.
2. Re-sign linebacker DeMarcus Ware. This is one extension the Cowboys won't regret.
3. Let Greg Ellis go. He was a good soldier for a long time, but he wants the chance to start and he won't get that here.
4. Make a decision about Roy Williams. The other Roy Williams. It was about one year ago the Cowboys were kicking around the idea of cutting safety Roy Williams. He returned, under the idea that if he improved his play he would stick around. If not, he would be cut at season's end. An injury, however, limited him to three games in 2008. The Cowboys missed him because he is better than Keith Davis or Pat Watkins. But the team needs to determine if it's time to find another safety.
5. Be prepared to lose Chris Canty. Canty wants to return, but considering so many of his teammates have signed extensions and he hasn't it doesn't look good. The Cowboys would like to have him back, but at the right price. But he's apt to land a bigger deal elsewhere.

Visit boycott09.net. Parody site, but our end game is serious. We want to make a tiny dent in Jerry's wallet to make him remember that the fans pay the salaries.

keep the REAL ROY (no 38) he was the missing factor this season!!!!! And he can still blow sht up!!!!!

I am not going to even write my own off-season to do list because none of really matters if you have a lame duck good ole boy head coaching the team. Until that's fixed the players on the field may change but the losing culture and soap opera will remain the same. Oh yea don't bring in Ray Lewis either unless he is coming in as a head coach.

i have to agree with jv donnant on that one, because for the pass 12 seasons, the cowboys offseason starts in december and carryover to january. next season it will be going on 13 season, with no hope in sight. the cowboys for the pass 12 of those season still can not take advantage (championship), of getting ahead start on everybody else when it comes to the offseason.

Mac, maybe the Cowboys need to be made aware the offseason doesn't begin until AFTER the Super Bowl.

I think they've misunderstood and believe it begins the second Sunday after Thanksgiving.
