    Some people handle disappointment a lot better than others.

    Disappointment is one thing. i playoff win in going on 17 years is unreal and sickening. bad decisions by Jerry and his son caused this mess.

    you might be right, but Spencer is switching positions and putting his hand on the ground. I know, he did it in college.

    He is 30 and had one really good season. Many players have one really good season playing for a contract.

    I hope I am wrong.

    Tired of the Jones' bumbling in the draft, free agency and with the cap. Tired of one playoff win in 16 seasons. Tired of all the NFC teams improving while Dallas sits on its self inflicted salary cap hell.

    Look at it this way, if we crash and burn this coming season - which everyone here expects us to do - imagine how much cap space we'll have in 2014 with Romo, Spencer and the $5m penalty off the books! We could sign the entire Jacksonville Jaguars!

    Don't forget the conditional 7th round pick they can surely get for Kyle Orton.

    If you were my kid, I'd give you a big hug and tell you everything's going to be alright.

    Except with the Cowboys, of course, which are an unmitigated disaster of literally epic proportions.

    With Dumvervil, I think he'd be the most sought after pass rusher.

    In terms of paying Spencer, I'm not really all that concerned about him being 29 or 30.

    I think there are too many holes to dedicate so much cap space to one guy.

    They had better work out a long term deal or trade him. Playing under the cap again is not an option. That would be $20M in total cap hits which is just insane to think about if the team has to constantly restructure every year to get the job done.

    Consider that the cumulative cap hits for Romo over the last 5 seasons has been about $36M because of the maneuvering they have done. Even if he played at $16M this year, that's still less than the $10M/year that it would ultimately be for Spencer to play last year and this year as a tagged player and he still wouldn't be under contract nesxt and Dallas would be right back at square one next offseason.

    Spencer is not the most important player on the team and yet to some extent he's being treated like he is.

    If he plays tagged again, Dallas will have sacrificed a ton in order to rent a guy for two years.

    That's kinda the problem with this organization and it's fans, they're handling disappointment better and better as the years go on. I guess we're just getting used to it.

    You know, I remember listening to financial counselor Dave Ramsey and he said "Things won't change for you until you have a 'sick and tired' moment".
    When will that moment be for this organization and it's fans? Is it 1 playoff win in 20 years, 1 in 25 years or 1 in 30?

    Every year more and more "positive" fans turn into "complainers" because the results on the field doesn't warrant giving this team the benefit of the doubt. At some point this organization has to prove it on the field and in the front office to turn the tide of the public sentiment.

    Positive fans and complainers just have a different way of looking at the same thing, two different sides of an argument. The thing that settles this argument is the teams record over the last 18 years or so.

    Sad state of affairs when you're coming off a 3rd place finish in the weakest division in football and while other teams are signing free agents, not only can you not sign anyone, you're cutting players to get under the cap.

    Baltimore is doing the same thing only they are coming off winning the Super Bowl.

    Wait, I thought we were consistent

    Does that mean another 8-8 year?

    I guess garret is building a consistently average team

    He's definitely up there. I'm fine with it too. We have holes to fill on offense.

    I *think* you're trying to be sarcastic here, but I honestly have no idea what you're trying to say in this context. Good stuff, though, otherwise. Thanks for sharing.

    I'm going to PM you a hug, too. Things are going to be ok, visionary!
