    Jerry Jones says on his radio show on 105.3 The Fan, that it's unlikely Cowboys will make any trade because there's no room on salary cap.

    Not saying I disagree, but Jerry Jones basically said Calvin Johnson is best WR in the league and Dez Bryant is No. 2.

    One more quote from Jerry about Romo "We couldn't have a better quarterback... Bill Parcells and I thought he was Italian." Well, alright.

    Bryan Broaddus ‏@BryanBroaddus 7m
    Just listening to Jerry Jones talk, he puts a tremendous amount of faith in Rod Marinelli and what he can do with these players.

    Tim MacMahon ‏@espn_macmahon 5m
    Jerry on KRLD-FM: "We want to be careful about how fast we bring back (DeMarco) Murray."

    Jerry on KRLD-FM: Calvin Johnson is best WR in the league right now. "Dez can aspire to be that and has a chance to be that."

    Jean-Jacques Taylor ‏@JJT_ESPNDallas 7m
    Jerry on his radio show said he's not spending a lot of time trying to trade for a DL.

    Jon Machota ‏@jonmachota 2m
    Jerry Jones said #Cowboys have evolved at protecting a lead since last time they played Detroit in 2011.

    Clarence Hill ‏@clarencehilljr 3m
    Jerry Jones said on the radio that Calvin Johnson is the best receiver in the league and that Dez Bryant still has a chance to be that

    Jerry Jones said Bill Parcells and I thought Tony Romo was Italian before finding out his grandparents were from Mexico..Only Jerry

    The NFL averages 1.2 trades per year at the trading deadline.

    This ain't baseball, folks.

    The only trade we'll make is if we lose a player on Sunday with significant time.

    call me crazy, but it seems Jerry Jones is becoming more and more careful with his teams personal and future.

    Ok, you're crazy. J/K :) I think Jerry is all around a better GM than several years ago. He'll never be an Ozzie Newsome but he's gotten solid or better in my eyes. And I've NOT been a fan of his in the past by any stretch of the imagination.

    The salary cap is never a problem if you listen to some posters.

    Or it's a complete disaster if you listen to others.

    It's not a problem if you draft well. But it restricts you from addressing glaring needs through free agency.

    at some point, the bill comes due, reworking contracts is a nothing more than a band-aid effect on a major gash

    All things being equal, 2013 has been an excellent year for Jerry the GM. He has made many of the right moves.

    At this point he really can't make any more moves. No more cap space, trade limit coming up, etc. Let's see if he can stack 2014 into a positive as well.

    Oh, definitely. They are going to be hard pressed to find the cap room for a true emergency like a punter yada.

    Yeah, I thought that it was a little ironic.

    I'm 100% fine with us not making any trades. Keep growing via the draft, keep bringing in quality FA's for a small price, and we'll be golden.

    Re: the Calvin quotes, I guess Jerry has to put SOME kind of cap on the Dez extension (not that I disagree either).

    We've had a lead in every game this year. But we never had a 3 TD lead that we let slip away.
