    I ran into a Cowboy fan today and he could barely contain the chuckle at how happy he was to have Zach Thomas.

    He needs to keep talking to Zach a LOT and Crowder MAY become the player I think he could be, and that may be really good. If he keeps up or learns to prepare and watch game film, do all the little things that help make Zach great, then Crowder could be just as good because he has better size and seems to have just as good a set of physical tools.

    Question is: does he have the instincts?

    Wouldnt that be great if Crowder could become our next ZT. I dont think anyone will be as great as ZT was, that guy just had the instincts for where the play was going. Although if crowder keeps chatting it up with Zach, and gets his butt in the film room and studies film as much as Zach did... maybe he can really start to live up to his potential.

    If you look at his numbers I don't know if we'll ever have another Zach Thomas. There are very few players in the league that can measure up to him. I remember when he first came around I wondered if he woudl be as good as John Offerdahl.

    Uh... no, he isn't. Channing told reporters early on that he's not Zach and not trying to be Zach.

    ESPN: behind the curve. Again.

    He can replace Zach. he already did! He's playing Zach's old position. He replaced Zach for two games in his rookie season and made the calls when Zach went out with injury.

    Will he be as good as Zach is the question. But we don't need him to be as good, there are few that are. We just need him to be good period. I think there is more talent around him than there were the last few years.

    i was thinking the same thing. thats the second time ive read somewhere that we traded Zach. Must have been great negotiating on Jerry Jones part. We're in for one hell of an era if this is how Jeff Ireland conducts trades.

    Jerry Jones: "Well what do you want for him?"

    Ireland: "Well, I was kinda hopin for a starting lineman. But I'll settle for nothing if you play it right."

    Jones: "Nothing it is then. Hey missy, {whistles at his secretary} get me Zach Thomas on the line. We just roped us a Texas boy!!! Woohooo!!!"

    Ireland: {hangs up phone} "CRAP!!!!"

    Bill Parcells: "WHAT THE **** IS WRONG WITH YOU!!!"



    And I guess Zach visited all those other teams just for vacation.

    You know if you imagine Cotton Hill's voice for Jerry Jones it makes that story line much more amusing.

    Crowder won't ever be the player Zach was. But after seeing his intensity with Roth vs the Chiefs, i am starting to believe he will be a pivitol leader and playmaker for our LB crew, he's the guy in my mind that just will be way too eager on the field not to succeed this year.
