...The guy is an All Pro, but he has some locker room issues...If Coach McCarthy is on board, and JJ can get a fair enough contract then yes...otherwise no!

That's your opinion and I can say it's mistaken as well, do you see how that works? You seem to feel threatened when other opinions are different than yours. How little of you. lol.

Why is talking to you always like talking to an angry child? Threatened? I'm not the one who throws a tantrum and stomps his feet whenever anyone disagrees with him. I'd say it's a little embarrassing, but you do you!

Let’s make this clear does anyone here think he is the same player of three years ago? No he isn’t but he is far better than anything we currently have. So it’s not an infatuation of what his skill set was but currently is and it’s better than what we have. Jerry loves to gamble and I say roll with it because does anyone really think the back four is gonna hold up as is.

Funny how you describe how you carry about like a fool and then pretend it's not you acting that way but rather blame that childish behavior on whoever you are arguing with. Is this some kind of defense mechanism you invented? Grow up! :rolleyes:

What are you even talking about? Go back and read our conversation. I say we should get ET, you throw a tantrum in response. It's what you do every single time, with everyone. But, yes...pretend it's the other way around. :facepalm: By the way, I never argue with anyone here, unless it happens to be a member of the tantrum crew, which includes yourself. With everyone else, it's called conversation or debate.

I voted yes simply because he is better than what we currently have on the roster at safety...........so its a talent issue for me.

With that being said, the dude is going full Antonio Brown here getting himself kicked off teams. So I admit, there are some serious red flags here so I totally understand the team taking a pass on him.

I disagreed with you about something but you can't handle an adult disagreement so you characterize it as a tantrum and change your strategy from defending your own opinion to attacking me personally. You never take responsibility for your own childish behavior. You just deflect and ignore that you are no longer defending your original opinion because you know you can't. Go there and you know I'll destroy that argument all over again. You've lost so just go away and stop embarrassing yourself. ;)

The only thing that you have destroyed is any semblance of maturity. I'm not going to hold your hand and read you your initial response, with "BS", and "how little of you", both in the same post following a response where I said ET was better than anyone we have. Then you lost it like you always do. Of course I deflect nonsensical ranting. You want to debate? Then act like a grown up and debate. How would ET not be the best option at that position coming in? Who do we have who is better?

Exactly. If we sign him, and even if he shoots straight, he won't be long for this world here, but if we really are in SB or bust mode, we don't need him for long.

There is no debate, ET is a joke. The Raven players didn't want him around, that's how much he embarrassed himself just like you are doing. He's a clown, you're a clown so go figure, a clown defending a clown. If you don't understand the guy is finished then that's your problem but don't think for a second he's coming to the Cowboys to become our problem. It's just not happening. All that's left to do is hear you cry about it. :rolleyes:

And this, ladies and gentlemen, is a textbook meltdown by one of our resident feet-stompers. Clown? Sorry kid, I work in a psychiatric hospital; you're going to have to try a lot harder to offend me. Maybe ask your parents for help. I imagine you said ET was finished after Seattle. Still getting to pro-bowls...but yeah, he's finished. You're always good for a laugh, Joe, I'll give you that.

That's how you defend your lunacy? You can kiss ET's feet all you want but he's not going to be a Cowboy, period, point-blank, end of discussion.

No, that's how I described your lunacy, just now. The one thing you might be right about is that ET likely isn't coming here. This team has a hang up with improving certain positions.

Earl Thomas still has ability, and likely is better than any current would be safety on the roster. However I am concerned he could become a disrupter on our young team. If we do acquire Earl all we can hope is that he respects the coaching staff and gets along with other players. My vote was to pass on him, but I won't rage at anyone else that wants him on board.

LOL, I said it first. You can agree ET is not coming to Dallas as long as we disagree why that is. Goodbye to your crazy talk.

You guys notice how there is zero public news on ANY teams showing interest?

I think it’s becoming more clear that he was pretty bad in Baltimore for the team chemistry and or he wants way too much money.

either way, Dallas needs to wait this one out

This is true but since we're 2 weeks from the start of the season, timing is very much an issue. Most, if not all teams are set with their starters ( 49ers and Falcons admitted as much ). With that being said, it's interesting we haven't heard anything regarding the $10M guaranteed salary. Is he filing a grievance? If so, how long will that take for a decision? How will it impact his next contract? Also, keep in mind if you sign him to a deal before the first regular-season game, you're on the hook for his entire 2020 salary if he's on the roster. Lots of issues to consider here but notice one thing........Cowboys have still left the door open. I don't think that's a coincidence at all. Remember we add Coop 4-5 games after the season started.

Who is saying he is barely better than Darius Thompson? It seems the argument is cost and baggage. And even if someone says Thomas isn't as good as he once was, that doesn't equate to saying he is barely better than Thompson.

I literally saw it earlier in the post.

Edit: Even in the post you responded to I quoted the guy that said it. Not trying to call him out because others in this post have a similar outlook.

Thomas seems to be the name everyone has heard and thinks of the thomas from 5 years ago. he is on the wrong side of 30, coming off injuries. to say he has lost a step is an under statement. and now seemingly he has lost his focus and drive and just seemingly wanting to have one last large contract.....he is not focused on football, given he has missed meetings apparently to get his car washed, has gotten into fights with teammates and just got cut by the ravens, a superbowl contending team. we are a young team, we don't need distractions given even if he is better than thompson, he may not be much better at this point in his career. Plus, it seems that nobody really wants to sign him, everyone who has a need just like us has said, no thanks...including SF, Atlanta, NO.....

but hey, people on this board like to play madden football, they just make a trade on the game and turn up the ratings and fantasize.
