Default Dan Bailey cut...

The cowboys just cut their best offensive weapon from the last 7 years..... The guy has been a rock, never misses, one of the best kickers of all time, and they just cut him....

He went from 93.8% in 2015 to 84.4% in 2016 to 75% in 2017. He looks to be on a decline. He missed 5 field goals and 2 extra points last year. He hasn't really been the same after a groin injury. I assume this is why they let him go. I'm still not sure I would have done it though.

Most of those misses in 2016 were from 50+, he only missed two in the 40-49 range. Last year, he was on fire until the groin issue. I remember the Nick Folk, Shaun Suisham, David Buehler trifecta before Bailey came in and it SUCKED.

Kickers are a dime a dozen. Bailey hasn't been the same, and they saved something like $3.4 million. If Bailey was still Bailey he'd be worth paying, but he's not. Might as well save the money and address another need.

Sure, it sucks to lose a favorite. But for too long, Jerry has dealt in loyalty and overpaid players for past performance. They quit doing so about four years ago, and this is just another decision under that idea. I'm good with it, I think it's best for the team to move on.

The Rook looked really well and was hitting from mid field. Brent is right, kickers are a dime a dozen.

The problem is, he's not a rookie, he went undrafted back in 2013 and hasn't kicked a single field goal in a regular season game. That scares me, considering how many games the Cowboys win or lose by 3 points.

Please enlighten us all with more of your sports knowledge, so we can all bet the opposite.

I don’t think Dallas will be within 3 of Carolina at the end of the game, so non issue.

I get where you’re coming from, but I disagree. Everyone wants to complain that Jerry overpays people for past performance then complain when he breaks the cycle.

Because they broke the cycle, this team is young. Youngest in NFL. And they’ve stacked some talent. Sure, we’ve got some positions left to address. Safety, WR, and need some more LB depth. And this cut might hurt. As have some of the others we have walked away from. Murray, Ware, Dez, etc. I really do think this is best move for the team.

Yeah Jerry couldn't even answer to it this morning....I think its a big mistake. Looks like Jet's are scooping him up.

Your fact, isn't very factual. Darius Jackson signed by Packers. Jihard Ward signed by Colts. I'm sure there are more if you dig. You should quit listening to those clowns on The Fan. They're wrong far more than they are right.


You're also talking about 36 players who never had a real chance to make the team, who were already at the bottom of the barrel in terms of talent. Your indicator of how much (or little) talent this team has, is based on how many scrubs we cut that got poached by other teams? If so, you're paying attention to the wrong things imo.


No, this team isn't perfect. This team has some serious concerns. QB, WR, LB, C, DB, etc. They are young, they are talented, and I think the best overall product we've had on the field in some time. Still not dismissing the concerns, those are valid. But I think this defense is going to surprise a lot of folks. They've done so every year for the past several. Played waaaaaaaaaay up in terms of talent.
