    I find it refreshing that we half a defensive coordinator who will bench players if they do not preform.

    Traditionally, Jerra and his braintruss would let players coast and not bench them then call them "competitors," "intelligent" and "hard workers."

    Yeth, accountability is something we should be glad for.

    Good plan Stephen. Wake me up if you actually do get above .500 because I don't see it happening. And by the way you might want to cast your gaze towards the offense because their just as bad or worse than the defense.

    In recent years I haven't purchased tickets, merchandise, and I've missed 2/3 of the games on TV. I'm doing my part to help this franchise get back on track!

    Just speculating or course, but could we be seeing the results of a head coach that has been given the win or you're out ultimatum? In other words, what does JG have to lose by benching some of JJ's guys at this point?

    Maybe but then again I think the coaches are just trying to motivate and get the attention of some players to reach their potential and letting them know their roles are not carved in stone. Not just a message to the affected players but others.

    Yeah cuz internet message boards aren't good for venting or anything. :rolleyes:

    And I guess you missed the part where I typed:

    "No, I don't watch the games in a typical fashion (ie tuning to FOX, CBS, ESPN, etc...)."

    Some of us are lucky there isn't a "dislike/hate" option.

    To me that's a waste of..ummm... key pressing.

    They are great for venting but coming in day after day saying the same crap over and over. Damn if you don't like them stop watching the damn games, you get pleasure out of this do you? Fricken joke for people to whine constantly you would think they are adults and would just say hey I don't enjoy this I'm not doing it anymore. All your complaining and what has fricken changed? Not one thing

    I come here because there are people who talk football not just whine. If I don't like the movie I get up and walk out I don't sit there watching it over and over so I can complain. Grow up

    Sounds more like two Old coaches with skins on the wall telling them, "this is how we see it"

    All the other coaches we have had either were scared to tell them, or Jerry said he didn't care, and that includes JG.

    My point was more tongue in cheek than anything else. The fact that Jerry and Stephen do all these radio shows, means things will come out that are better left to the HC's press conferences.

    I have an idea. since Mo and Carter are so bad that they have been benched for the likes of O. Scandrick and Ernie freaking Sims. i dare the Cowboys to trade both of them and try winning anything with Scandrick and Sims. Carter and Mo would become stats with another team. while the cowboys would be stuck with 2 second rate back-up players. a head coach that's a joke. a DC in his 70's that could not even stop a college offense. and Jerry and his son Stephen. GOOD LUCK WITH THAT.
