    I like his football game but not the show me the money stuff.

    He's a fun guy to watch on the field. College anyway.

    We could have won games with Manziel. A young athletic QB with the young talent we have on this team. Manziel to Dez Bryant. Cowboys would have been a team to watch out for in 2014.

    You must not watch the same Dallas Cowboys... The issues were with that pathetic defense.

    Does anything we say in here bring about substantive change?

    26th in points allowed, 13th in turnovers. Doesn't sound like the 'worst defense of all time'. We should have easily won this pathetic division, especially with that cupcake schedule we had.

    There's certainly no Brian Hoyer here to stand in his way, eh? You're a riot, as usual.

    Yep, Jerry basically admitted that Garrett has botched games and he doesn't want another team to benefit from Garrett learning from all of those mistakes.


    So Jerry just admitted that the last 3 seasons was basically "on the job training" for Garrett and even Jerry knows Garrett has botched games that should have been Ws.

    Jones just can't help himself....there was ZERO reason to say this publicly other than his narcissism or his desire to get more air time for the cowboys (controversy sells)...how do you think martin and the rest of the team feels?

    On the field. He seems like a little immature kid off of it.

    It's pretty gutsy of Jerry to speak for Will McClay.

    I go for forgot what the official story was. I liked Stephen Jones's answer to the same subject much better. It was sane.

    I just wish Jerry hadn't said what he did about coming so close to drafting Manziel in the draft. Just when I began having faith in his having made some progress in his judgment, he has to say this? Well, at least he ended up doing the right thing, thank God. It's good that he changed his mind but discouraging to think he came so close to making another mindless decision. Ah, well.

    Yea & then you find out he came from a very wealthy family so he comes off as a spoiled brat type.

    He's definitely immature. I've seen quotes from him where he said he's not changing for anyone. He might have a hard time in life when he gets out there & finds out the world doesn't revolve around him.

    If one is a Romo hater, its not possible to recognize it. Its all about one guy "choking" in the big moments.

    The GM I would hire would have the philosophical belief that games are won and lost in the trenches. I'd make sure of that before I'd ever hire the guy.

    After that, its his ship. I won't think for my General Manager. But I will hold him accountable for the results.

    This stuff really isn't hard if you don't have an ego bigger than the state of Texas.

    See, why can't he just have a philosophical belief that he will make the right moves necessary?? You want a guy, who would think almost like you. No in reality, it's just a clone version of you, with maybe just a little more knowledge of the Fronts.

    So in reality you would Jerry Jones. lol

    Overall i do hear what you are saying, but as you stated, it would be hard for you to not have things go your way or in a direction you want the team to be built.
