    Myth.

    New Orleans or Chicago ring a bell?

    Bruce Carter jogging around trying to avoid contact sound familiar?

    No one is going to go into a season to tank it.

    If he's tanking the season then he won't be firing JG.

    Bluestar's right. The team played hard for JG. Carter was lost. The games you mentioned it was over before it started. When the Cowboys were in it, they played hard. Got to give credit where credit's due.

    The issue with Jerry as GM is simple: He cannot leverage the difference between building a winning team and selling tickets. To sell tickets, you go get players people know and/or give the players they already know and love too much money to continue playing, which typically leads to spending too much, which typically leads to the situation the Cowboy's find themselves in now: Cap Hell. To build a winning team, you build through the draft (and to a limited extend, Free Agency - see Patriots model for reference) and you accept that it may take a few losing seasons to return to greatness.

    Jerry Jones has been tanking seasons since 1994. He tried hard in 95 but we won Super Bowl anyway.

    Its very possible we will tank, but I dont think it will be on purpose. If we tank, its because our team is just not very good.

    I don't think you understand the difference between getting beat and giving up.

    Fuzzy, remember who you are responding to....!

    Last season's team did not give up, they played the best they could considering the injuries....but, you have these kind of posters here all the time.

    Just about any coach can get their team to play hard for them. I think were overrating Garrett as though he has a monopoly on players playing hard.

    Sorry but ain't happening if Romo plays the whole season. Dude just carried the worst defense in franchise history to an 8-8 record with a bad back. Only way this team sniffs a top 10 pick is if he gets knocked out early in the season.

    No chance they would decide to tank the season before it even started.

    It's possible for a QB to succeed late in his career, but very difficult. It happened with Jim Plunkett. If We had a killer defense to support Romo I would be hopeful it could happen. Romo hasn't gotten a ring because he's never had the team he needs to get one. Next year will be more of the same.
