    INDIANAPOLIS – Dallas Cowboys executive vice president Stephen Jones knows 8-8 is not good enough. But as he looks back at the Cowboys’ 8-8 finish in 2013, the view is slightly different.

    He's no upgrade from his father and that depresses me. Watching his bungling of personnel and the cap gives me little hope for the future

    It is true. No one on this board really expected Ratliff and Spencer to be gone, and that Ware would be injury plagued this season.

    That is 3 out of the 4 starting DL not being in the game/or effective.
