Haha that's exactly what I was thinking. Now Brad Johnson's noodle arm is going to be really sore from throwing.

Might spread out the coverage more, and might mean a more open TO

I heard the Lions got a 1st, 3rd, 6th and 7th for him. If that's true that's just plain nuts.

We could have got Tony Gonzalez for a 3rd round pick. Thats what KC was looking to get, with no takers. He sure would have given Gus some one to dump the ball to that has good hands.

Straight from ESPN....

The Cowboys will give up a first-round pick in 2009, plus a third- and sixth-rounder that year for Williams and a seventh-round pick in '09.

That's insane to give up that much for an unproven guy. He's decent, but he hasn't lit them on fire. Talk about giving up. Wow.

Williams is good. With the Cowboys he'll be utilized more. That is a lot of picks though...

Sounds good in theory, but the barometer will be how many tears T.O. sheds in post-game press conferences.

thats crazy.

I like this trade for alot of reasons. I have Calvin Johnson on my Fantasy team, might mean alot of good points.

TO is going to be a horrible player about this, becuase hes not the go to guy ne more.

This trade will not go down good for the Cowboys. T.O. is NOT a team player and he will see far fewer balls his way now. This is a bomb waiting to explode in Big D. This is exactly the kind of move Detroit needed to make to start the rebuilding process.

I thought they started rebuilding about 10 years ago? laugh

I just read that 2 teams offered a third round pick for Gonzalez and it wasn't enough. KC wouldn't take anything less then a 2nd rounder. Gonzalez is a stud or atleast he will be for another year or two, but he's just too old to spend a 2nd round pick on.

T.O. is a team player in Cowboy land for some odd reason crazy. If you have been watching their games this year you would see that blocking anywhere he can and doing anything to help out. This will have a positive impact on the Cowboys and will free up one of the 2. If they both are double covered they can throw it to Witten or Barber. Sure it might not start showing results until Romo gets back but it was a good move for them especially since they have both Roy Williams now and they are both from that area. The Lions Calvin Johnson will be double teamed constantly now and his value drops and yes he will get more looks of two defenders on him.

I do think they gave up way too much for him still but it will pan out.

the lions traded Roy and a 2009 7th round pick for a 1st, 3rd, and 6th rounder from the cowboys in 2009.

just to clarify a post earlier that stated the lions got 4 picks in return, actually they're getting three and giving up one.

This might mean easier running for Mr. Barber, too.

Maybe not be a bad trade for either team. Detroit gave up a semi-proven early first rounder (7th pick overall in '04) for a first rounder and a third rounder. Figure the 6th and 7th round swap is fairly even. Dallas will likely be near the bottom of draft order for '09.

Might help Detroit recover a little from the crazy "Draft a WR first" mentality that they had for so many years under Matt Millen. 4 out of 6 years they draft WR first?

    •   It's hard not to lump them (Koch Bros) in with the Tea party as they spent millions supporting it and effectively, with some others, namely big tobacco, created the Tea party.      http://www.huffingtonpost.com/brendan-demelle/study-confirms-tea-party-_b_2663125.html  
    • I got an electronic sliding deadbolt on the garage and the house. It is the BEST THING EVER!!!! just push in 4 number and it opens up without any other input. To lock, you just push one button. I think maybe Quickset brand or something like that. I liekd it more than Schlage model.   My Mom had one that you put in the 4 digit combo and then have to turn a knob. Still nice, but the auto one is awesome.   It beeps for unsuccessful, and it willgive a red (rather than green) light and also a beepbeepbeep when the batteries get low. Pretty easy and forgiving to let you know when to change them. I have not had them go totally out on me yet in about 5 years or more, but I change them usually after about a week of beepbeepbeeping  I would guess I change them 1-2 times a year, more in the garage as it gets locked and unlocked more.   Seriously, best thing ever. I never carry keys anymore, never. I leave keys right in the vehicles in the garage, dont' bother bringing them into the house anymore. At the cabin I leave keys right in vehicles as well.
    • You do know Uncle Bengahzi........that burns are covered by the ACA.
    •   The best system is one where consumers are left with a choice, so yes. I would agree.
    •   In other words, officer duffy, and the rest of the lib - tard nation's got nothing...     Lolololo.....

    • Nothing is going to be perfect but right now we pay way more for healthcare than anyone else, whatever we are doing is only lining the pockets of the industry and worse yet we are forced to pay. Let me know where it says in the constitution we have the right to be forced into paying high healthcare premiums, it doesn't exactly sound like America the free.

      Maybe someday I will research healthcare and write a report for you but I don't have the time right now. As I see it cutting out the middle man is good for 320+ millions Americans vs a tiny fraction of health insurance industry. We need to stop catering to tiny fractions of people for monetary gain and look at the big picture.
    • Will do.  We were just up there for ice fishing on Bass. First the drizzle and rain came, then the wind blew us all the way home.  We did get in some good sight fishing for bass though. 3-5 fow on the edge of reeds.  Real cool to see the bass come in and take your lure that shallow.  We got a couple of 18" +.

    • Del is that you shooting down any kind of change again? It can happen as soon as we decide we need to start doing what is in the best interests of the voters instead of what is right for some small segment of the economy. The politicians fear losing their jobs more than they fear these special interest groups. Even the far right has to see that letting the insurance industry have it's way and even worse force people to sign up for this stuff is a total crock. Ya ya we could go to a free market and let the market decide but I don't even know if we have free markets when it comes to big $$$ industries. They get what they want and we are forced to pay, not exactly a free market. Now if we could find a way to get there that would be great but there is way to much influence to let that happen.
    •   I think the countries in Europe that have systems that work still have insurance companies.   Why don't you research how it works in Germany and Switzerland, and get back to us with a report.    The problem with single payer is that, as we see with medicaid, that the government is tempted to reimburse at too low a level to sustain the providers.   Even the Brits seem to have a private system with insurance that runs in parallel with the government providers.    As for government providers in this country, the VA is an example.
