Good, Parnell and Claiborne need work. Play them both Thursday.
OK--I am all in now! Not joking--serious..........best owner in sports has spoken but, as always not before consulting with his staff.....he is basically telling us what he has heard from the coaches........that is what I love most about Mr. Jones......he is a big fan that gets excited and cannot keep it to himself.......love the guy!
glad to hear, after re-watching the Bengals game he certainly looked like he was shaking off some rust
I love what JG is doing with this team and the direction its going in. I'm very excited for the season to begin. Let's go Boyz!!!
Ahhh...4 parts rum to 1 part fruit juice...sounds good Jerry.
“I’d say that Tony has some of the kind of skill that you might see in a Sean Payton,” the Cowboys owner said Tuesday morning on his radio show on KRLD 105.3 The Fan. “You get a guy that just might onside-kick the ball in the Super Bowl. … There’s a little bit of that, and whether that’s the risk-taking aspect – it is – but it’s also just the flair for being able to see it and be creative out there.”
Jones said former coach Bill Parcells encouraged him to let Romo’s creative juices flow on the field.
“He has always had a real appreciation for Romo’s approach and his intellect, relative to play-calling, relative to seeing and understanding the game,” Jones said. “And he’s unique in that way.”
Payton was the quarterbacks coach and passing game coordinator under Parcells in Dallas for Romo’s first three years with the Cowboys, although Romo did not play during that time.
“So where are we going with this?” Jones said. “Where we’re going is that, in visiting with Bill, he thought it was something we really ought to maybe take advantage of – try and take advantage of – is Tony’s ability to see the field, call the plays and make more decisions out there. We were going in that direction, obviously, as had been well reported. But Bill had positive thoughts about it as well.”

On talkin cowboys they have said that he still walks like he's still having issues with the knee and/or hamstring.
“First of all, Doug Free was nothing short of amazing,” Jones said Tuesday morning on his radio show on KRLD 105.3 The Fan. “He’s never played guard. You ask the question, are there things that guard might require you to do that address some of the things that Doug has always tried to do in his game? I think that may be the case.”
Jones said Free showed naturally quicker hands, which are less of a requirement at tackle.
“That was a real, real plus,” Jones said. “I couldn’t comment on it after the game because these are the kinds of things that you really just need to analyze play after play and rewind and play and look at them. But boy, it was impressive. I don’t want to get too far over our skis here, but Doug looked good.”
Jones said Parnell played well and is showing some of the power the Cowboys like in him.
“He’s got tremendous power,” Jones said. “Our strength people think that his punch is the most powerful they’ve ever measured. And so, boy, he can set ’em back on their heels when he pops them. And of course, he’s got the outstanding feet of a basketball player because that’s what he was in his early days in college.”
Jones said he was glad to see Bernadeau play well at left guard because it gives him a third position, in addition to right guard and center.
But this lineup might not be necessary, in Jones’ mind. He said Leary, who had knee surgery the last week of training camp, should be ready to go against the Giants.
“We expect him. He’s really making very positive progress, and we expect Leary back for the Giant game,” Jones said. “And he was the one that was having an outstanding camp.”
