    It was only about 24 hours ago that Cowboys owner Jerry Jones was talking about the “glitz and glamour,” of his team.

    (We just kind of assume at this point he's always thinking about ********** too.)
    But today, he was singing a different tune, painting a less shiny picture of what might be about to happen to his team.

    At the team’s kickoff luncheon (rarely the kind of event that brings realism, much less pessimism), Jones told his players: “our back’s up against the wall.”

    You know that we have an uphill battle this year,” Jones said, via Todd Archer of ESPNDallas.com. “And we do have an uphill battle. But most of you had an uphill battle when you came to camp. Most of you did. And some of you have absolutely rose to the occasion.”

    Of course we have an uphill battle, Jerry. You're the GM....and your son is your top assistant. Tell us something we don't know.

    I really like to hear him say this instead of hinting that this year the team is great. let them show it to people instead of tell them.

    I agree with Jerry, but the division is still winnable IMHO.

    I kind of wish Jerry would find some new strippers to be misrepresented with.

    Because when those pictures came out he disappeared.

    Man I need to sell my season tickets as fast as I can this year. This season is going to be a disaster.

    I wish I could buy a few from you. My brother lives in Dallas and hates the Cowboys. I want to take him to a game.
