Did I hear right?

Cowboys offering their two first rounders, 3 current players on the roster plus the rights of Marion Barber to get the first overall pick.

If I can speculate, I would beleive the players can be Sedrick Ellis, Bobby Carpenter and Brady James (my speculation, not Shefter's).

This is an interesting story to follow in the next days....

I would love for them to give all of that up to get DM. I really hope he doesnt land in Atlanta.

That's sort of the thought process I heard on NFLN, although not in that detail...just that Jerry Jones was there, and is drooling over the thought of drafting McFadden. I wouldn't be surprised to see Dallas pull the trigger on a major deal to get McFadden, especially considering that Miami is open to trading away that pick.

If the Cowboys do this they are offically the dumbest team in the history of the game...yes worse then what we gave up for Ricky.

Marion Barber is a beast. McFadden will be lucky to play like that guy.

Oh please make this trade. It's a win-win for us. Either the Cowboys get McFadden and he becomes an animal for them, keeping him away from the Falcons or McFadden is a bust or turns out to be very average and the Cowboys set their franchise back a few years. Do it Jerry.

Duh, that's what happens when your rush to type while a 3 year old girl is jumping all over you....

I think Parcells can go to bed tonight with a smile in his face is this is done.

BTW, my speculation on these as the 3 players comes on some speculation of Ellis being shopped around, Carpenter was at the end a Parcells' pick, and Brady James may be benched with the signature of Zach Thomas yesterday.

I know you shouldn't evaluate this trade considering where this cowboys players were drafted, but if I'm not mistaken, both Ellis and Carpenter were first rounders and James a third a think. That is 4 first rounders a third and Marion Barber for McFadden. Wow!

You know what we be great? If one of those players that they trade off would be Zach Thomas. Zach Thomas gets traded to the Lions or some team that he hates.

Marion Barber has averaged 4.8 yards a carry the past two years and is an excellent reciever also. Hes also a stout blocker.

What does Jerry think McFadden is gonna do so much better then Barber? Cure Cancer or something? The difference between McFadden and Barber doesn't equal two first rounders, three players, and the rights to Barber.

And imagine if McFadden turns out to be a bust...it would probably go down as the worst trade ever.

Why would the Dolphins want Zach when they just cut him, and he signed with the Cowboys?:dunno: I would think that they might ask for younger players.

I can't see them giving up two starters(Greg Ellis and Bradie James) along with Barber. Carpenter definitely seems like a guy that would be on the trading block, but the knock on him is that he doesn't fit in a 3-4 defense so why would Parcells even want him?

Personally, I hope this deal gets done. The more offensive players that go high, the better chance we have of getting a good defensive player at the 10th spot.
