    Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett said the bounty program that has been exposed in New Orleans isn't an issue here.

    "It's never really been an issue for our team,'' Garrett said. "That's not something we have done.

    "I think we all have a real focus on player safety. I think everyone understands that the league has done a really good job of that. We try to do that with our team so it has not been an issue for us. The league will probably come down with some recommendations as to what we're suppose to say to our team like they've done in similar situations in the past.''

    So, did Garrett ever feel there was a bounty on his head when he played?

    "I wasn't good enough to bounty,'' he said. "They didn't know who I was.''

    Good, because nobody but Ware and Lee would have collected a dime this season.

    Really? We're whining about the fact that our team didn't place bounties now? Is there a story that's going to come out this offseason that we're not going to try to turn into an opportunity to complain about something? Honestly? Because if there is, I want to make sure that I don't miss that lonely thread.

    The Saints are about to be some bark, some bite, no draft picks. I'm happy that this isn't going on in Dallas.

    Perhaps you missed the sarcasm!

    What they are saying is that as bad as this defense was last year, it is obvious there was no bounties, and if there was, no one collected on it.

    You missed the point by a mile. It's the fact that even if we did have bounties, we weren't good enough to even cash in on them :bang2: :bang2:

    I am suspicious that our team pays bounties to players who help up the other teams players after the play is over.

    We used to get autographs if the other guy beat us. Does that count?

    Dude, shut the front door already! You have to go and piss all over this with your crying? Start a thread or something if you want to ***** and moan about it. Better yet, add something substantial or worthy of a reply.

    After seeing Brandon Jacobs punk them out every way he could ....... I have no doubt our D has no fight in them.

    Has anyone noticed that, as a team, the Saints were not exactly a defensive powerhouse? The main difference between them and us is a very good offense.

    I know you were making a joke, and I get it...but still....

    The jokes weren't subtle. Or funny, for that matter. I didn't miss them. I just chalk them up to whining-for-the-sake of whining because, when your only tool is a hammer, everything looks like a nail.
