It was the first year of a rebuild with a new coach and the franchise QB had just revealed himself to be a transexual who couldn't cope with change. I would say Shanahan had MUCH higher expectations year to year than McD did that year. With Shanny I think it's safe to say we all believed we were just a couple playmakers on defense away from being a playoff team every year.

And Foster had exactly zero decent seasons.

That's being very kind. I've seen DT's with a quicker first step/explosion than Ayers. I said as much in his first season and was roundly criticized here.

He'll get better with experience, no doubt, but no amount of experience can give you a lightning quick first step.

With Shanahan, there were high expectations of the team every year BUT I was referring to draft expectations. Maybe I'm wrong, but I had higher expectations from the 2009 and 2010 drafts then I think any Shanahan draft.

Wasn't saying Foster was great, but he did start for 2-3 seasons right? Think he's at least on par with Ayers, unless something changes in his game.

Did you see our blocking? McGahee couldn't do sh*t either. KM excels in the I formation, yet we were in the shot-gun almost every play. He ran very good out of the I in preseason. I didn't understand much of what I saw of our formations in that game.

Wow how far have we come. Its funny that we all feel like we need Big Bob to rush the passer now. This thread is a good reread.

I mean, he was injured his rookie year. The following year battled injuries and of course Orton/Tebow throwing him the ball. Finally last year he showed potential of an elite WR, and backing that up this year.

DT is ridiculously good - and WITHOUT attitude (you never see him trash talking - he just makes nearly every catch tossed his way, and smiles - like in his commercial).

I'd take Demarius over Dez Bryant all day, every day

Okay, playing in 11 games, catching 32 passes for 551 yards and 4 TD's plus 10 catches for 297 yards and 1 TD in the 2 postseason games. He hadn't brought up elite status yet, then last year he really shined.

In the second half of the year only Calvin had more recieving yards that DT. Then he blew up in the playoffs.

Dez has quieted down quite a bit but I think that may also have to do with his team assigned babysitters to keep him out of trouble.

With that said though, they are very similar talent-wise but DT has a slight edge with blocking IMO. We would be lucky to have either one but I am happy with DT now.

Ayers had a tough time with his work ethic here at UT as well. It took him some time to come into his own. Maybe it is the same thing with pros.

Edit. I now have 4k posts!!!!

I love when you read through a thread titled about Ayers and it's mostly about DT and Moreno. People can't stay on topic these days, lol.
