    There are posters here that would defend Jerry running over puppies on purpose. Consider the source and dont waste your breath. If your eyes tell you grass is green it probably is.

    maybe the Jerry lynch mob can break out of their tunnel vision and learn to read,,,,,,ABCs....easy as 123.....

    Im not defending Jerry....simply pointing out his resume, and asking for those who say he isnt a football man to tell me their qualifications of a football man and to show me the better resume....

    never said he shouldnt be fired.....

    never said any other team would hire him......

    never said the last 17 years were peachy .....

    and never said he was a good GM........

    all of your talking points are made very clear here on a daily , thread to thread basis.....they have nothing to do with the subject at hand....

    Thanks.

    That's just it. Will we see some "uncomfortable" decisions made with the roster? Now the thing is this...I'm sure there will be uncomfortable decisions made but will they be made in the right spots. I don't trust JJ's player personnel decision making. As mentioned in another thread I read today, often you find the more successful franchises have a GM or player personnel director who fought up through the scout ranks and the like. Jerry doesn't have those experiences to lean on. And whoever gets JJ to believe that Olinemen and Dlinemen are the new "shiny new toys" of this league that person will be deemed a miracle worker.

    I understand JJ's passion to win but is that passion so great that it is blinding him from handing the keys over to a more experience driver who can drive the player personnel car? Stubborn oil man syndrome?

    do you ever take a stance on anything? according to you jason garrett comes back even if he goes 6-10 next season, anyone who criticizes romo is an idiot, jerry is a football man. do you have any constructive criticism to contribute about this once storied franchise being .500 the last 15 years?

    Getting mad at Jerry, and misunderstanding what Jason Garrett has done, and then complaining about Tony Romo hardly constitutes constructive criticism, by the way. It's just tired, generalized complaining about the people in charge.

    and exactly who do you think you are?.....something special here?....
    you havent even been here a year yet you have almost 4000 posts of nothing more than you showing us how much you detest "your team"...

    instead of worrying about my constructive criticism maybe you ought to worry about whether you ever have anything constructive to add to threads other than to remind us how much Jerry/Jason/Romo sucks....

    remember...there is always the ignore feature if you can no longer tolerate someone with something positive to say about the Cowboys.....

    LOL you think "hey guys jerry has a great resume and is a football guy but that doesn't mean he shouldn't be fired or that he's done a good job or anything at all" is contributing to the discussion? you can't even finish your own point when others challenge you. how about you get off the sidelines and take a stance on something for once.

    fair enough but how do you absolve all three of blame all the time? eventually someone has to be held accountable.

    This is a pointless argument because people are going to define "football guy" a million different ways. Just because Jerry played football and had enough money to buy a team doesn't mean he's a "football guy", at least not under the definition I believe most people have of that term.

    It's not on his Cowboy bio, not in the bio written about him by Jim Dent, and if he was, he would scream from the hilltops that he was an all-SWC lineman. You put that in to pump up his resume, and it's not even accurate.

    He also did not have final say on personnel when Johnson was in Dallas - Johnson had it written into his contract that he had full say over all on-field issues (personnel and coaching staff). No coach has had that since in Dallas.

    It's not an attack - its pointing out an Inaccuracy that you put in to bolster a resume of an individual who is the fulcrum of a middling franchise the last 16 seasons.

    Try not to be so sensitive when someone corrects an error.

    I don't know how much power-stripping is actually going on, but it sure seems important for the superficial perception to be that it's enormous.

    ....WITHOUT YOUR 'INSIDE' KNOWLEDGE....we'd NEVER be able to ascertain what Jerrah is up to. I mean are you kidding me with this stuff? :rolleyes:
