    IRVING, Texas – Dallas Cowboys owner and general manager Jerry Jones would like to see defensive end Anthony Spencer in a Cowboys’ uniform again. Spencer, who was placed on injured reserve on Wednesday and faces knee surgery in the near future, is set to be a free agent after the season. Spencer turns 30 in January and will be coming off a potentially difficult rehab if he chooses to have the microfracture surgery. Spencer’s agent, Jordan Woy, said a decision on what kind of surgery Spencer will have has not been determined.

    Wether we want to admit it or not, this is the best answer.

    this is the quote of a man who has no business being the GM of an NFL team that wants to stay competitive year in and year out

    Jones said he does not regret the decision to tag Spencer back in March.
    “That’s just the life we’ve chosen, so I don’t in any way second guess the commitment we made to him because of the caliber of player he was,” Jones said. “We certainly would like to have those dollars, but I’d rather have Spencer than those dollars. I can’t look at it as the obvious. Anytime something doesn’t work out, I can’t look at it that way. On the other hand, I can tell if anybody was going to get the money under these circumstances, I’m glad it’s him. He’s worked hard. He’s that quality individual and that quality player.”

    as cut throat as that sounds....I agree with you. This is PRO sports. Not everyone gets gold fish and orange slices at the end of every game. There is a clear winner and loser. And if you are not getting better, you are getting worse. There is no in between. We are a .500 outfit because of the mentality of Jerry Jones. I hate pointing this out after a positive START to the season. But once again....Jerry shows who he TRULY is. So don't blame me for rolling my eyes at Jerry.....I am rolling my eyes because nothing when it comes to Jerry ever truly changes.

    exactly

    jerry the GM has an "oh well, stuff happens" attitude because he is also the owner and knows he will never get fired

    runnung an NFL team is a business, treat it like one

    All he's saying is that you don't fret over sunk costs. That's Business 101. And then he throws in a nice compliment for one of his better players. It's nice that he's able to keep the injury in context and still compliment a good player publicly. Orange slices and Goldfish implies that he thinks 'everybody's a winner, no matter what.' That's not what he's saying here, though.

    There's plenty of eye rolling to do over Jerry Jones, but this isn't it.

    What would you prefer the owner/GM say in this situation?

    Absolutely nothing.

    First, I don't want an Owner/GM and I certainly don't want the GM to be the daily mouthpiece for the media.

    When people talk about Jerry being too loyal to his players, this is the kind of example they're talking about.

    It's time to move on but if by some chance Spencer would return on a minimum, you take that. You do not pay any sort of decent amount at all with a knee like that.

    Spencer had a great season but it was by far his best and going forward you can't just hope and pray he gets back and doesn't further damage his knee in the future.

    What else is Jerry suppose to say? Nah Spencer is done for, he will never be the same. Selvie will give us much better play for a lot less. I think Spencer will not be a Cowboy next year unless he takes a big paycut, something like 2 million a year so he can reprove himself all over again.

    Meh, this is nothing more than second-guessing. There's zero actual reason to blame the team for Spencer's injury. They rolled the dice on a franchise tag when they didn't think they had a viable alternative in place, then did a great job finding some alternative players. It was the right call, and Jerry's right to not second guess it just because the guy got hurt.
