    I think they honestly think in a better scheme/coach they can fix Jaylon and the linebackers. We saw how quick they cut guys like Dontari and traded Griffen last year.

    I honestly believe they still have faith in Jaylon and not only that but they like him. That goes a long way right or wrong here. Ask Tyrone Crawford.

    I hope Quinn can at least get him playing ok again.

    He has one more season to do it. I do think he is gone next year if not.

    They can't do that because they don't even hold themselves accountable. They can't fire the GM. They won't fire the head coach......they fired Nolan but that was easy. That's usually the first one to go with the Jones's.

    Dumb non move if true. You have to consider any move that makes the team better. Everything should be on the table.

    I could see that. Next year. Jerry still wants to be right on Jaylon. That's my thinking anyway. And I'm sure Quinn got the job hyping up what he can do for Jaylon, LVE, etc.

    Elliott's contract should not be looked at as one for a restructure. He's likely gone after the 2022 season - pushing more cap charge toward that year and more dead money is a bad idea.

    Cutting Jaylon Smith would actually save the Cowboys 400k against the 2021 cap with no additional dead money beyond this season. His 9.4M in dead money is sunk cost and overall irrelevant to whether he should be on the roster or not.

    No linebacker has ever made me facepalm as much as Jaylon has. I would miss the concussions if they cut him.

    They = JJ. One look at the tape and noone on the coaching staff is going to shed a tear if he is let go.

    When did Jimmy ever cut a leader or cornerstone player? The answer is never. He churned the scrubs at the bottom of the roster if he needed to make an example of somebody.

    I'm not sure the nerve is dead. He's great at swiping for example.

    What's dead are his football instincts.

    Not from the sound of things. They tend to believe his issues don't stem from him. I'm not agreeing or disagreeing with you...I'm just telling you how Jerry and co. will spin this.

    Great. Looking forward to more 4th Q down by 2 touchdowns swipes or the bad angles to avoid contact.

    The guy sucks.

    We need to sign Dora, to tell him not to do that.

    Then maybe Dashiki as LB coach, so she can say "wrong hole fool."

    Is that's the case, Sean Lee's fragile *** would have been gone long ago. Along with Tyrone "Tweener" Crawford. But the circle jerk here for these lovable losers has been strong for quite some time. Jaylon is just low hanging fruit at this point.
