    Exactly, and even after he's gone, I don't see things being much better under Jr. That's why I say our only hope is if Jerry moves the team, leaving the name and logo to the city so Dallas can start over as an expansion franchise.

    Roger has figured out that things are about to get ugly and that it will likely get worse before better.

    Agreed. We were talking about this just recently. It has to be Aikman, Emmitt, Michael, maybe Moose, Jay, Larry Allen...the guys that played under Jerry that should speak out and that would have an impact.

    Of the non-Jerry players, I think Staubach and Randy White carry the most weight but it's not the same as if Aikman, Emmitt or Irvin said it.

    I don't know. I wonder if this has a better chance of working now than in the past. I also wonder if Roger put together a credible ownership group if the league wouldn't pressure the Joneses out.

    How freakin' great would that be if Roger bought the team. Never gonna happen but I get chills thinking about it.

    Glad Roger said it. Until then we can celebrate Jerry making losses to be moral victories and talking about "how close" we are...all the time

    For Roger to say that, you know it's bad.

    Jerry makes the league a ton of money with all these Tv deals doesn't he? He's a brilliant businessman when you consider how stupid he sounds in interviews.

    He's our owner till he's 6 feet under & then you have Stephen.

    You are obsessed with this my friend. OBSESSED. Garrett has a minor role to play in Jerry's theater. When will you learn that? He's got a bit part and is a footnote to the real narrative.

    He doesn't call the plays. He doesn't have anything to do with defense or special teams. He's essentially a half-coordinator with a little influence on the tone in the locker room. That's it and that's all.

    There's no guarantee that hiring a GM would make this a great team. He might hire an idiot for a GM. Or maybe not. But I think the handwriting is on the wall that Jerry's not the guy. I wish he could see that. I was hoping back when Parcells was coach that the plan was to eventually promote him to GM.

    That's absurd for you to say that.

    Better to say it now then to never say it at all. All of Texas knows he needs to step down from that position.

    This just shows how out of touch with reality Jones is...


    Does he really think it's just the one game? Not the season after season after season of the same mediocrity?

    And does he really think it's about being "panicky?" Oh Jerry, we were past panic about 10 years ago.

    Garrett said something similar in his PC today. Actually a few things similar to that.

    I had thoughts of some other responses but my job restrained me.

    Just more proof that this team is really in trouble.

    Did anybody actually listen to that link? I did. Nowhere did Roger say it is time for anything. Nowhere did Roger say anybody should step down. Nowhere did Roger say Jerry shouldn't be the GM. He said something very different than that ("he needs to transfer some of the decisions"). I am disappointed with how some are running with this and misrepresenting Roger.
