I meant Austin/Ware/Hatcher situations.
Next year. There's always next year......
its sad that this season is pretty much a lets fail one more year and then make changes...this upcoming season is going to be awful
I agree Garrett should be able to pick his staff. Jerry hired the guy to do the job.....yet Jerry has undermined everything Garrett has ever wanted to do from almost day one. I thought after the whole "who is gonna call plays" fiasco and Garrett lost that battle...his days were numbered. It's comical to see who can out snake who in this Jones/Garrett relationship. I don't think there is a lot of trust there. And that's a problem. If Jerry is gonna continue to neuter Garrett @ every turn then what is the point of carrying out this game of charades? Get on w/ the house cleaning instead of wasting time!!!!!
I agree. Everyone knows that next year is going to be a train wreck. I don't know why we have to wait.
can you put your last sentence first so I know to stop reading then please? Thanks.
I think this is about Jerral Wayne Jones' Ego... He doesn't want any more remnants of Jimmy's staff here in case he wins a Superbowl. He wants to say HE did it without Jimmy.
Who cares about that old fossil Norv? Is the offense really the problem? It scored 48 points in a LOSS.
You just think he is.
Have you never heard him describe how "painful" it was to sign Rivera, Ferguson and Henry back in 2005?
When it comes to spending on the football team, his "big splashes" in free agency are relatively few and far between.
He also hates to fire coaches. There is a reason practically every coach has inherited members of the staff, often at his insistence.
What if Norv didn't want to come to Dallas? What if the interest wasn't mutual. Just saying. I know it's crazy but the luster is gone off this organization.
What makes me so upset is the mount of money the Cowboys made off of their brand name.
Paying off a few coaches should be a non issue with the kind of money they pulled in.
Never figured that one out either. Paid Deion, Aikman, and Novachek for years after they weren't even here. Add in revenues from his stadium outside of cowboys, final 4, national championship, etc. and the dude is banking it, but he wouldn't want to fire some lousy coaches and pay them.
True. He might have said oh hell no.
It's all for the entertainment in Dallas. What a circus and mess of an organization. Thanks Jerry for ruining it.
Few and far between is a relative notion. Free agency splashes are not exactly common in the NFL. While a particular year might not bring in a Brandon Carr, he is normally active in March FA.
The thing is that I see a whole lot of empirical evidence of his willingness to spend money. He has paid a lot of money to guys over the years. Aikman, Sanders, Glover, Parcells, and recently Marinelli who was the top paid position coach in the league. More specifically, he shows a willingness to spend money when he thinks it will help him win.
I have also seen counter evidence to the notion that he won't spend when those such as yourself claim that he is strapped for cash when he offered Asoumugha all that cash.
What I have not seen is are example of him being cheap when it was not the salary cap holding him back. In fact, all I see is unsubstantiated message board claptrap. I do not believe things unless I have a reason to believe them. Him complaining about money that he has already spent does not count as evidence that he won't spend money.
Yea that actually makes no sense. Why wouldn't Jerry be for Norv coming here? What would be his reasoning?
Not sure how true this story is. That said I can't believe so many people are defending Jerry. I'm not a huge Turner fan, but if Garrett wanted to hire him then you let him. If you are on the fence about firing Garrett then just do it. Otherwise, let him bring in the guys he wants and do everything you can to help him succeed.
Next season with a lame duck coach and coordinators that he doesn't want? Great! Can't wait.
Yeah, yeah whatever. Have you guys seen this stadium?
Hiring new coordinators doesn't change his lame duck status. Which is probably why Jones didn't let him.
Norv should have been the HC Hire in the 1st place at least he can call the plays.
Besides Turner has the new recipe for the secret sauce from same out dated system in Garrett and Jerrys Glory hole.
