    I won't argue- perception is reality in our own private little universes.
    That is your perception of the situation- so be it.

    I believe Jerry Jones is an awful general manager, but I don't fault him for chasing Jimmy Johnson away. Jimmy Johnson was going to leave the Cowboys one way or another. He was dropping hints and bombs along the way, making it all but impossible for Jerry NOT to fire him.

    I wasn't thinking of Jimmy, Parcells is the one coach with clout we've had until he had enough of Jerry (and T.O.).

    this shows that Garrett has no spine.

    Garrett could earn SO MUCH respect if he quit and cited this as a reason. He could say that as HC, he wants to be able to bring in who HE feels he can work with best and is best for the team. He could really stick it to Jerry.

    But he won't. He'll settle for whatever scraps Jerry pushes off the dinner table like the good lapdog he is.

    Don't let Floaty suck you into his world. You're a rational poster and he is Floaty.

    He was banned from another Cowboys message board where he was considered a professional troll. He was known for creating alternate user names to make it appear that other posters agreed with him.

    The Holmgren train has long past. It should have happened in 2007 when Parcells left, and Holmgren should have brought Garrett on his staff. By now, Holmgren would have probably wanted to retire, and Garrett would have had 7 years of learning with a top flight coach and under a top flight staff and he would more than likely be ready to be a HC. And I think Romo would have benefited too. I always thorught Romo would have performed better under a WCO.

    But this is all would've, should've, could.ve. I think you are right. I think you are right. The staff will stay as is, and it's up to them to ride it out this year. And with our cap issues, the team will probably stay as is as well (with the exception of rookies). It does not give you a warm feeling going into 2014.

    Good to know.
    I said I wasn't going to argue with him since it immediately seemed like he was not a person who would make even a decent debate.

    I guess I saw what you're telling me, in a way.
    Even if he wasn't- perception is reality in our own private little universes and he is in mine.

    Thankfully I just got a copy of that Star Wars Holiday Special all those years ago and I've been laughing ever since.
    That George Lucas is a twisted, savage individual- not to be trusted with small children and certain dogs.

    Mike Munchak quit in TN rather than let the GM change his staff. Good for him. Jason is not of the same mindset.

    Haven't we learned that this is apples and oranges? Dead money has already been paid to the player.

    past 17 years? Cowboys were a top 5 team in the league in 2007, they were the second best team in the league in 2009.

    The Cowboys were a top 10 team in 2006. The Cowboys should've won 11 games in 2011. The Cowboys should've won 11 games this season.

    Ultimately, the players that you guys worship have let us all down at every turn(ware witten romo , garrett coaching). I feel bad for Jerry.

    The Cowboys are 89-71 since 2005. You want see that on ESPN! That's damn near Troy Aikman's career record.

    Things in Cowboy land aren't as bleak as the media and whiny Cowboys fans potray it to be.

    Cliché

    Parcells was in on bringing T.O. to Dallas. Don't ever think otherwise. #trustme

    That's the reason Jerry was caught drunk bad mouthing big Bill on that video.

    Parcells and Ed Werder gave Jerry the okie doke, gullible Jerry hatin' fans and media fell for it.

    That's what Jerry was pissed off about on that video. Parcells walked away scott free on the Terrell Owens signing, when Jerry know full well that Parcells was 100% in favor of the move.

    It became wasted year the second Jerry decided to retain trainee Garrett.

    Jerry proved he could care less about winning when he admitted he was "training" Garrett.

    The biggest problem is he didn't fire Garrett THIS YEAR. I honestly can't think of any reason why Jerry would keep him around another year. Jerry must like losing.
