    I would like all of the art removed from the stadium. Can it be sold and put towards the cap?

    I thought the team addressed the center position? Is this an old post? Lol

    [quote="CanadianCowboy2, post: 5297708, member: 746trade are in cap hell for a while so we have to take some lumps and not keep renegotiating too many more contracts next year.

    Resign selvie and Hayden as backups.
    Draft:
    round 1 stud DT or DE
    Round 2 stud run oriented OG
    Round 3 DT
    Trade round 4 back several times and accumulate several picks for cheap depth to stop the expensive contracts.[/quote]

    We are so backwards with the cap I could see jerry trading out of the first round entirely for later picks as a cost cutting measure.

    I really have no idea how we are going to create that much room without releasing several players and still being forced to restructure several contracts placing future years into even worse shape.

    Thid team is so depressing

    They are already under contract for 2014, both for $730,000. Unless they have some sort of clause that voids their deals for playing time, they are both back at affordable rates.

    That's about the most precise summary of the last 15 years of Dallas Cowboys futility anyone is likely to come across. Oy! :(

    Nope, just want Costa and a lot of other mistakes off the squad. We can do better than Costa as a backup to Fred.

    Who cares? Nothing will change no matter who we draft.

    Are you Mickey Spagnola?

    Always justifying the state of the cowboys by pointing out those worse than us.

    The Steelers have been to three recent Super Bowls winning two e.g. they've won more Super
    Bowls than we had playoff wins in the last 18 years.

    The Giants something similar.

    How about the Ravens and Ozzie Newsome, I'll take him as GM.

    Get rid of JASON GARRETT and MONTE KIFFEN!

    I'm all for keeping the same head coach and not switching them every year. But Jason Garrett has got to go, the team hasn't changed one bit since 2011.

    Get someone like Jon Gruden or Lovie Smith and give them a chance to do something that Andy Reid is doing with the Chiefs. That is our best shot IMO. We are running out of time with Romo, Witten, and Ware. We need to make a gamble.

    Frankly I am sick of Jason Garrett and cannot wait till he is gone. I think we will be looking back 3-4 years from now and thinking "Thank God those days are OVER!"

    Coaching is this teams problem.

    Dude, one playoff win since 1996. I was in 6th grade.

    Find me a GM that would have kept his job through all of these bone-headed decisions Jerry has made.

    Dude, like I said, how about giving me a name of some dude you want for GM? Maybe Google can help you name some GMs. Like a lot of others, you can throw the name Ozzie Newsome out there but he ain't coming here. Bone-headed decisions come with the territory of being GM and basically life in general. No GM is perfect. In Balt, a lot of fans are calling the Boldin trade to SF a bone-headed decision. And we'll see soon if the Flacco mega-contract qualifies as a bone-headed decision.

    Sure, Jerry Jones has made some bone-headed decisions but he has also made some really good decisions also. Over-ruling Parcells and drafting Ware. Getting Romo and Miles as undrafted FAs. Drafting Dez. The 2013 draft rocks so far. The 2012 draft was a miss so far with the Claiborne trade. extending ratliff was a plain bonkers decision, I thought at the time. Tagging Spencer this year turned out to be a boneheaded decision but, at the time, was considered by some a good decision. The one fault I see with Jerry Jones over his tenure is that he rewards his players too well and is afraid to cut loose with aging vets.

    Nobody is perfect I understand that, but Jerry's mistakes since parting ways with Jimmy Johnson have far outweighed the good.

    I would hazard a guess that Romo would never have gotten his change if Quincy Cater (another great Jerry decision) hadn’t smoked his way out of town.

    By and large I would credit the coaches with developing Romo, Austen rather than Jerry.

    Yeah, I get it. You seem to have the "anything good, credit HC or player" and "anything bad, fault JJ" mentality. many do. I don't see it as JJ's fault that Quincy Carter smoked weed. Those who do must think GMs have crystal balls to predict the future. Bowe just got busted with weed, is that the GM's fault?

    Here's an indisputable fact: if it weren't for Jerry Jones, Romo would not even have been here. Jones made the call to sign Romo as an undrafted FA. I'm sure he was given advice, listened, and then made the call. I think Denver (Mike Shanahan?) tried to sign him and offered more money than Dallas.
