    I read a post recently on another forum that was so eye opening I have never forgot it. The poster listed about twelve things within the organization that were total screw-ups. Little things like forgetting to renew the team's website to big things like knowing the practice facility tent was susceptible to high winds and inspecting the Super Bowl seats the morning of the game. Things that leave you shaking your head wondering how that can happen in a billion dollar empire. That type of leadership and attention to detail starts at the top.

    When asked about Tony being the 7th most hated player in the NFL last week classic Jerry said, "Yes but he's relevant!"

    That's all you need to know. Nothing matters as long as we're relevant and today we are -- big time. From the last second meltdown to Dez and everything in between the Cowboys are America's pastime today.

    Which brings me to this. At end of game situations for so many years it's always one or two little things that players or coaches just don't execute and that type of leadership works it's way down to the field. For instance, Bob Sturm's article said that Stafford threw a perfect pass to Kris Durham that beat Scandrick vertically and before Jakar Hamilton got there late in a cover 2 scheme. How the hell does Scandrick get beat VERTICALLY in that situation? That same mentality cost Denver a trip to the Super Bowl so obviously players need to be told it time and time again, don't they?

    Shouldn't every one of those guys be thinking NOT to let a player get behind them. Isn't there a coach going over these things before they come on the field. Shouldn't Tony or the coaches reiterate to the players before the play or in the huddle NOT TO TAKE a penalty on that last play. Wouldn't Tyron have just let his guy go after just hearing those instructions?

    I know the game is going a hundred miles an hour but time, down, distance and decisions, those attention to detail things have doomed us so many times, I don't think it's a coincidence.

    But no matter, because today all across the country its - "OMG! Did you see the Cowboys game yesterday!?

    ...and Jerry is smiling.

    As long as the Cowboys are worth the most, that is all that matters. They will give you a good game but lose in the end.

    Jerry Jones has a product and he will do everything he can to keep that product relevent so he can continue to sell that product.

    When was the last time this team was in an honest rebuilding season/mode?

    After rebuilding the team in the late-80s/early-90s, and after the 95 Super Bowl, it seems that this team has been in a constant mode of trying to patch holes. It's like having a leaky roof and instead of just fixing the roof, the team's been running around with buckets from drip to drip.

    It actually scares me to death to think of Jerry Jones attempting to just fix the roof. (rebuild a team)

    We could actually end up without a roof at all.

    You think he allowed the tent to collapse crippling some and dangerously hurting many others in order to be in headlines? Smh

    The sad thing is, the fans don't know that they have the power. Jerry Jones is nothing without us (in the football world that is, he's a great business man elsewhere). Just stop buying the **** he peddles and maybe then things will change.

    LOL me thinks you are correct. I guess the first positive step would be for Jerry to admit that he's no roofer

    Agree w/you. Problem is, as Troy Aikman so nicely put it, going to Cowboys games is all about seeing people and being seen. Its not so much about football. So, you probably have a good % of people in attendance who do not live and die with the team each week. Its more about just being at the stadium.

    Jerry's team is on CNN, Fox News, ESPN, Al Jazeera, and NPR today. Jerry is a happy man regardless of the outcome of the game.

    Smart teams and players make smart decisions because they understand the game situation and know there is accountability ie if they make bad/ stupid decisions they will not play

    Oscan and hatcher and romo have to know what to do

    They don't because Garrett does not

    If you think for a second that Dez would start the next game if he did that on the NE sideline with bellichick and Brady you are wrong
