    If we drop Miles, don't we have to draft a starting receiver in the first round?

    I would say so. Lord knows that's the only way to get a guy like Miles.

    Remember Jerry is the King of disinformation this time of year. Don't trust what he says.

    This is like saying that you don't need car insurance because you think you're a good driver.

    There was a time where i used to believe this could be true, but the truth is on the field each and every year.

    Jerry has show willingness to neglect areas of need again and again, we've more or less needed to do something about safety for a decade now. OL has been a huge need since the 09 playoff loss to the Vikings.

    I don't understand how any fan can defend this crazy old man.

    I hate Jerry for saying this,Romo should seriously consider playing somewhere else when his GM has scant disregard for his safety.

    Which is probably why none of the people who do defend him are commenting.

    I haven't been his biggest critic by any means but this is just insane. How can he even say this with a straight face?

    It is the weakest part of the team, bar none. There are other problems like DL or Safety, but nothing is even close to the problem the Oline has been for YEARS. Maybe decades.

    Let's not go overboard here, they were pretty good in 2007.

    Well, its just another Jerry sell job to be honest. Basically he knows we have too many needs to satisfy them all this offseason, so he thinks he has to disregard one of them. With him knowing he's probably not going to pay Spencer, he knows he has to get a pass rusher early so he is downplaying the OL.

    I just wonder why its not seen by anyone here, and everyone here goes nuts over every word that comes out of Jerry's mouth. You have to know who you are dealing with here, he's a used car salesman, if he is selling a car with a hole in the trunk he would say that your not going to put water in there anyway.

    I wouldn't be surprised if the opportunity presented itself that he would trade up for an edge rusher. Its a premium position, and really deserves those type of resources, although it might keep us from filling other holes elsewhere. Of course, I don't think we will fill them all anyway but thats another topic.

    original link was to the mobile site

    i understand what he's saying, but i think it's stupid... our ol has been atrocious but improved towards the end, however we definitely need an upgrade somewhere on the ol...

    Told everyone back in early December what is, IMHO, Jerry's plan for the offseason regarding the OL in this post:
    http://cowboyszone.com/forums/showpost.php?p=4878483&postcount=24

    The only thing I didn't get right was Jerry actually saying that the reason we didn't need to address OL was because of Romo's escapability. Really, I didn't think even Jerry was actually stupid/drunk enough to say this - I was wrong, obviously.

    I still believe that by the time training camp rolls around, all the other items I described will have occurred.

    Don't bother telling me that if I don't like the way Jerry is destroying the team I grew up loving since 1964, I should just root for another team. Perhaps some of you people can root for whatever team strikes your fancy whenever you decide to. As for me, I have rooted for the Cowboys for 48 years and I won't change now. I'll just have to come to terms with the reality that they will never again be a good team until Jerry is no longer the decision maker (if I live that long).

    Actually, I got to enjoy 20 consecutive winning seasons, eight Superbowls, 5 Lombardi's and years of seeing Dallas regarded as one of the best run teams in the NFL before Jerry made them one of the laughingstocks of professional sports. I truly feel sorry for people like my niece and nephew who were raised as Cowboy fans after Jerry took over the decision making and will never enjoy Dallas (under Jerry) being a consistently good team. At least they have the chance of outliving this deranged alcoholic and someone more knowledgeable being in charge of decision making.

    I will continue to root for the Cowboys but will just realize that their glory days have been over since 1995.

    "Jones reasons that the Cowboys can get by with lesser talent along the offensive line because of Romo's expert mobility."

    How exactly have the Cowboys "gotten by," Jerry?

    Oh, I know.

    Answer: A fractured clavicle, a punctured lung, a fractured finger, fractured ribs (on more than one occasion) and oh yeah, collapsing in the shower.

    Way to get by, Jerry.

    should be required reading for those that keep claiming the O line is not so bad. That we just have to let them play together a little longer.

    Meanwhile Romo gets worked.
