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?

    • well the seeds were planted four days ago and to my surprise when I checked them this morning they had already germinated. I will wait awhile before I tell you who was the winner.. Empirical testing at its best!
    • the make knives to cut them smaller!!!!!!!
    • Riiiiight... How come they didn't produce this document 8 years ago...
    • I would have started out at a young age, teaching them right from wrong. And that regardless of their gender tell them that I love them. When you make a mistake, you own up to it and be accountable. You do the crime, you do the time. And I that I still love them.
    • I thought you were AGAINST fake news now?
    • That's a good little tip.  I'll have to give it a try.  
    • I may not be an economist but it doesn't take a genius to realize that accumulating debt at the rate we are now accumulating it is a recipe for disaster. Debt is more than doubling every 8 years. There is no sign that debt accumulation will even slow down in the future and there is definitely no indication that we will start paying it down, unless you believe the Donald when he said he was going to eliminate debt in 8 years before he said he wasn't going to do that any more.   As Purple indicated above if you are OK with saddling your grandchildren with all of the debt that your and my generations accumulated and can sleep well at night then good for you. I think the party of accountability should start holding someone accountable but you and they just want to continue kicking the can down the road. What do you care? You won't live forever, right? Might as well let someone else worry about it.   Are all government policies rooted in fact? Everything that you or the party that you constantly support proposes is able to be defended by facts? What about all the morality laws, nothing based from religion is factual. Are abortion laws based on facts? How do you know if a woman should have ultimate control of their body? What are the facts that support it? How about gay rights laws? What facts do you have that support not allowing gay couples the same rights as heterosexual couples? What are the facts that support it being a bad idea that I buy a car or a 6 pack of beer on Sundays in Minnesota?   There are plenty of laws and Policies that are enacted by all types of politicians that are unable to be defended with facts.
    • Geez...we must fish the same lakes  Both of these posts above have become common now that "ice castling" has become the latest fad and everyone and their mother is on the ice.  There is an abnormally large % of those with the shiny new toy who chose only to save money on their generator, but spend as much as they possibly can on their truck and fish house.  I can spot them from a mile away...3-4 guys get out of the truck, they circle around the fish house a few times wondering how to get it lowered to the ice, then they finally figure it out, and 2 of the guys offload the residential home backup generator and carry it 100 yards away, 150 pulls later they get it fired up, and I only know because it's so loud it rattles the dishes in my cabinets.
