Look at the Cowboys record the last 3 seasons you call that progress? You call losing 3 straight season finale elimination games including one at home progress? Jerry does business the same way he's been doing it which is why his team remains stuck in the mud. The Cowboys have to sign mid/low tier free agents every year due to the Cowboys cap situation. Jerry continues to over pay players like Brandon Carr who was considered a mid tier FA. Jerry continues to resign players to big extensions who have yet to prove themselves. Sean Lee had yet to prove he could play a season without missing multiple games due to injuries and his contract just blew up in Jerry's face help costing him Demarcus Ware. Rebuilding with younger players doesn't mean progress. Just look at the defense now compared to 2010. The Cowboys have young new starters at every position and the defense is now the worst in franchise history. Yes this is a declining team hardly anyone other than Cowboy FANS think the Cowboys will make the playoffs in 2014. Some even have them finishing last in the NFC East. That wasn't the case the past couple of years but the defense has gotten worse every year and has become a huge liability. The only improvements the Cowboys have made under Garrett is on the OL and at the WR position. With Romo being 34 and coming off back surgery his best days have come and gone and so have Witten's who's starting to slow up. The only thing that can get the Cowboys headed in a positive direction is coming up with several solid building blocks from the 2014 draft and improved coaching.
