With a franchise QB and 2 future HOF's he would.
the worst gm in football got a franchise qb as a free agent?
why don't all the really bad gm's do that?
I used to have a saying when we were going through that terrible period of QBs after Troy and before Tony.
I would say...Jerry is trying to get a QB on the cheap...he is trying to hit a homer in a ball park while using a wiffle ball bat.
Well after trying and trying he finally got his homer. I would say Tony was a homer, might not be the grand slam homer some want but for swining with a wiffle ball bat he hit a homer.
But after thinking about it I think it is fairer to say that Bill pinch hitted for Jerry on that one LOL.
he didn't trade him when Sean Payton came a calling.
the worst gm in football would of.
sorry, you have to do more then type a couple words to convince me of something
We are not cursed. We simply have poor leadership at the top. It's not a curse.
Jerry is looking really old.
Are you sure it's not a Curse?
Curse of the...MUMMY?
I know...Boo Hiss
There is no such thing as "cursed" franchises. Just ones that are run poorly.
Cursed with a putrid GM
Jerry didn't make a deal with the devil to win three championships in the 90s. He simply allowed himself to take a back seat to a great coach for about five years and conned the Minnesota Vikings into giving up the bounty for a declining Herschel. In other words, he took advantage of a front office even more clueless than him. You aren't going to be able to repeat that every five years. Remember, Jerry even found a way to screw that up--chasing off Jimmy and costing us the first and probably only ever four-peat in Super Bowl era NFL history.
Seriously, to suggest the Cowboys' current woes are due to some kind of curse is only to excuse the last decade and a half of front office incompetence and atrocious coaching.
Not cursed... Have just made too many bad decisions.
Parcells built the core that contends today. He had to step aside and let the Tuna clean up his 5-11 mess.
Jerry hasn't ever built anything.
Bad management = YES
Cursed = NO
I know. Jerry was gifted a nucleus by a real coach and interim de-facto GM, then merrily commenced with it's dismantling.
We're not cursed,we're a poorly run football team.
If you remember, he commented after Parcells left that his way didn't work, despite the obvious turnaround with a young emerging core, and that he no longer had to walk on egg shells.
Parcells left with this comment - Before long, you won't even know I was here.
Jerry fell all over himself to get back to being large and in charge. Parcells warned you of it before he left. It was his way of saying "Good luck with this guy".
We saw Bill up at Saratoga a few years ago and wanted to tell him that "before long" had already passed.
Good point. The last of the Tuna's influence will be gone soon. Romo, Ware and Witten are in decline are are not going to last long. Then, they are back to just Jerry's players.
I didn't mean cursed in the literal sense..
We are not cursed.......................we just suck..............EPIC SUCK with Opie at the helm...........At least Wade won a couple of division titles and a playoff game..............Opie has won jack and lost to virtually every team over 500.
