    Mo is turning into that dude that was drafted early in the first round. He had a rough first season but has really come on strong last season and this one. I watched him go toe to toe with Beckham Jr a few weeks ago and he held his own.

    @LaSalleAve, I'm not sure about coming on last season. He's been hanging on by a thin thread in Dallas, but this year is his first without being injured in some way, shape, or form during training camp, and he's turning it on.

    He had two defensive plays that iced a terrific comeback by the Cowboys today. He intercepted midway through the 4th and stopped SF on 4th down on their last series. I'm very happy that he's finally making some noise out there.

    Why do I seem to remember him being somewhat of a letdown his Sr. year here?

    Towards the end of last season he started playing really well. It took the Cowboys benching him and letting him get fully healthy like you mentioned.

    Maybe because he left after his junior season?

    oh snap. I should've said his last season. amiright now?

    EDIT: Okay, I did some research and see he had a great last year here. Not sure why I seem to remember him struggling some. I was thinking he got soft in coverage, playing not to get hurt but apparently he didn't.

    I was glad to see him leave. He turned on the interception beautifully to seal the game. Being a Cowboy fan, any defense these days is much appreciated. Dak Prescott is something else though.

    Then you know how I felt seeing Julio Jones leave.

    His last season was in '11, and he was fantastic, as was most of that team. So, he wasn''t soft or anything that year. Hence, his getting drafted so high by the Cowboys.
