Tony Romo is the best QB in his division. You say maybe and then blame him for team failures but say he needs to be the one to turn the team around. Eli doesn’t need his team to suck for him to suck. He needs a good team for himself to look good. Foles and RG3 still need time to prove themselves to be better

Comment on Contract Extension In The Works For Demarco Murray? by Bryson Treece http://dallascowboysnation.com/2014/03/contract-extension-in-the-works-for-demarco-murray/#comment-19327 Mon, 31 Mar 2014 19:05:00 +0000 http://dallascowboysnation.com/?p=9389#comment-19327 Every player is looking to break the bank. This league has the most over bloated sense of self-worth ever. Mark Cuban was right – the NFL will implode on itself at this rate. But yeah, Murray should stay.

Comment on Dallas Cowboys vs. Jay Ratliff Saga Continues by Bryson Treece http://dallascowboysnation.com/2014/03/dallas-cowboys-vs-jay-ratliff-saga-continues/#comment-19325 Mon, 31 Mar 2014 07:15:00 +0000 http://dallascowboysnation.com/?p=9378#comment-19325 Somehow I missed the part where he couldn’t play here on the PUP list, and then played a week later in Chicago. I always liked Jay – spoke extensively with him on the phone when he hired my company to install some things at his Southlake, TX home in 2009 – but this is just shitty, no matter which way you turn it.

Cowboys should recover some money from him for that. Thanks Seth.

Comment on Josh Freeman Could Fit With The Dallas Cowboys by Football Mensa http://dallascowboysnation.com/2014/03/josh-freeman-fit-dallas-cowboys/#comment-19324 Fri, 28 Mar 2014 12:23:00 +0000 http://dallascowboysnation.com/?p=9204#comment-19324 I would hate to see this happen Bo. In Jerry’s mind he would think Dallas already has the young developmental prospect on the team. It would preclude him from drafting another. Jerry hates looking for a qb.

Comment on Is Jerry Jones The Worst Owner/GM In The NFL? by Football Mensa http://dallascowboysnation.com/2014/03/is-jerry-jones-the-worst-owner-gm-in-the-nfl/#comment-19322 Sun, 23 Mar 2014 19:36:00 +0000 http://dallascowboysnation.com/?p=9353#comment-19322 There is an element of luck in the fact Dallas isn’t the Browns. That luck is in the form of number 9. Remove him and Dallas is a 3-5 win team. Put Romo on most any of those teams for the last 7 years and you would see the current Dallas Cowboys at worst. Jerry didn’t want Romo to replace Bledsoe.

The 07 team was a talented team sans rb. Yet the coach of that team was Wade Phillips. Remember when Phillips was introduced ? Jerry stood and said “we got it right”. Really ? He got a coach who had a history of starting strong then fading out. It’s been Wade’s m.o. at every stop.

Next point I guess is you will say who procured that talent ? Well that would be the stellar 05 draft and 3/5 of an o line bought through free agency because of the amount of o line bust through the draft.

So with a matured 05 core just needing a couple of pieces and a proven coach , who does Jerry hire ? Garrett. An unproven coach who still cost the team games by his horrible in game decision making.

Jerry could have been a great owner but great owners don’t give their gm’s a pass for such a mediocre record. Jerry’s results speak for themselves. He is by far one of the worst in the history of the game. 500 record since Jimmy has been gone speaks volumes at Jerry’s guidance as gm.

He is one of the best. However, in running the Cowboys he forgets an important rule of Business….that he doesn’t know everything. Jones’ problem, and what makes him a horrible GM (not Businessman) is his inability to put trust in and empower his staff. He hires a coach he can control, makes his own personnel decisions, and decides with his ego rather than his mind. I’m sure Johnson wasn’t the easiest coach to get a long with, but if Jerry could have just sat back and let JJ run his team….who knows how many Super Bowls the Cowboys would have won.

Because Lamar had a dream called the American Football League. Against the odds, he and several other “dreamers” invested what was considered wasted time and money but they stuck together through “thick and thin” and made it happen, even with everything and everyone against them. Without Lamar Hunt, Football Sunday would be completely different than we know it today. It has been speculated, if it hadn’t it been for the AFL, at least 17 teams would have never have existed, ten from the AFL and seven clubs instigated by the AFL’s presence to some degree. And let’s not forget, without the AFL there would be no Super Bowl, which was named by Lamar Hunt!

The most important reason, Lamar Hunt brought class to the table. Something Jerry Jones and the writer of this piece have yet to do!

On the other hand, to compare him to Lamar Hunt, who started the AFL, charter member of the AFC, and has his name on the AFC championship trophy isn’t even a comparison. You invalidate the article by slinging mud at a man above reproach.

Comment on BUZZ: Dallas Cowboys Release DeMarcus Ware by Bryson Treece http://dallascowboysnation.com/2014/03/buzz-dallas-cowboys-release-demarcus-ware/#comment-19309 Tue, 11 Mar 2014 20:41:00 +0000 http://dallascowboysnation.com/?p=9259#comment-19309 What I’d like to know is if this gives the team enough room to get Hatcher and/or Spencer resigned. I’m not a big fan of Spencer for his inconsistencies over the years, but now seems like a bad time to release Hatcher the way he’s been playing.

And now, what happens to the draft outlook? The defensive line just became 10 times the priority that it was.

You have an opportunity to put out a young, talented core if you can just play your cards right. I’m not afraid to add a lineman in the first round of the draft or add a major contributor from FA.

That would give Dallas at least one dominant position group.
It’s downright sad we need lb’s. So many resources spent on trying to solidify that position. BUT , Lee was injured in college and Jerry thought he was getting a steal. It’s his m.o. Carter, just wow. All the athleticism you could want and he just doesn’t seem to care about the game.
A lot of needs on this team. One of them is qb. It’s a dire need at this point. Romo will be 34 when the season begins.

Comment on Cowboys Restructure Contracts: Romo, Lee, Scandrick by Bryson Treece http://dallascowboysnation.com/2014/03/cowboys-restructure-contracts-romo-lee-scandrick/#comment-19305 Tue, 04 Mar 2014 22:01:00 +0000 http://dallascowboysnation.com/?p=9080#comment-19305 Well I think you have to be clear first on what you’re asking the player to do. If it’s a guy like Ware who hasn’t produced at the level of his contract then less is fair in at least some sense. But f you’re just asking to restructure the deal, remember that restructuring isn’t less, it’s just less on the cap for this year. The player still gets his money this year. That’s a player with poor character in my book.

See: http://dallascowboysnation.com/2014/03/dont-believe-what-you-read-about-the-dallas-cowboys/

Note the comment from the OP. Restructuring doesn’t mean less.
