You can try and spin it off into Matt Millen and the price of coffee at Starbucks all you want. But the fact is the Cowboys are not disrespected and laughed at around the NFL. Outside the NFL, yes. Same with Millen. As I said, I'm even guilty of that myself.
But the comment was laughed at by the entire league. It was an is a rash statement that is completely unfounded.
You can continue to try and uphold it if you wish, but I'm not moving from that statement and all the little sidebar attempts to move from it won't work.
I think the fact that no other team was willing to even sniff Millen after he left Detroit is a much stronger indication of what the rest of the NFL thought of him than the fact that he was on the Competition Committee.
Doesn't the Commissioner alone appoint members to the Committee anyway? It isn't like the entire NFL takes a vote and selects someone.
Now, are we laughed at by the rest of the league? I don't know if we are or not, but I don't think anyone around the league respects Jerry as a personnel guy. Nobody else would hire him as a GM. In that respect, we..or at least he, are a complete joke.
