More important for Jerry to showcase Cooper than win?

    Got to believe Jerry wanted to prove to the world on MNF that the Cooper trade was genius on his part or why else are we throwing into double coverage on the goal line . That play was the beginning of the end of that game . Swung all the momentum IMO

    Would love to know whose call that was and why Dak didn't over ride it That was a horrible play call and execution by Dak . Dak used to be very careful with the ball and I really liked that now its a couple TOs a game and these were very much his fault

    Why do people think Jerry doesn't want to win? Because he doesn't win?

    Jerry can buy anything in the world, except another SB trophy. He wants to win. That he's failing so miserably is just comical at this point.

    I believe he definitely wanted Cooper to have a big game to quiet the noise during the bye week.

    When I saw the play my first reaction was that it felt forced and had everything to do with trying to justify spending the first rounder.

    There is not enough profanity in the world that I can say out loud to make myself feel better at the moment and it would be all pointless anyway.

    Agreed it just looked like we are going to force this issue instead of do what we do best and run the ball . Jerry just couldn't be satisfied with one TD he had to try and force another one in instead of letting it happen at its own pace

    Cleaarly they were forcing the ball to Cooper early. It wasn't just the INT. No matter who called the play, its Dak's job to recognize double coverage and look somewhere else. If you need a demonstration of how the QB's decisions can effect the outcome, just watch Mariota on 3rd downs picking the defense apart. The Titans clearly saw something on tape that made them go to that screen pass about 6 times. Dallas never adjusted to it. It killed them.

    The point of Cooper was to help us win.

    Once the safety vacated and went with Cooper, Cole Beasley was WIDE open in middle of end zone. Bum qb stayed with 1st read...int

    I really hope that Florio's assertion that the Joneses will need to cede power this off-season to acquire a top coach, ends up coming true. This is the biggest franchise in the NFL by a significant amount yet they try to "manufacture" good coaches out of people like Jason Garrett.

    He has no credible background that would lead you to believe he should coach the biggest football franchise. The Jones family needs to be willing to let go more on the football side. I respect what they have done over the years but they are currently failing the team. They are heavily biased in their decision to continue keeping Jason Garrett, a lifelong Cowboy that they handed the coaching job to as quickly as they possibly could.

    If they weren't biased he would have already been gone. Bring in an outside guy with no connection to the Cowboys and let them make changes on the football side. I fear that the team will either keep Garrett, or replace him with another guy with almost no track record.

    I think our only hope is if Jerry promotes Garrett to some assistant FO job and gets a new coach firing him means Jerry has to admit a long term mistake and I don't know if his ego will stand for that

    Never saw Dak try to force a pass like that. Elliotbwas open in the flat. He better start looking his way more.

    "Showcase" him for what? Of course we all wanted to see him play......not sure what you're looking for.

    Wait until he hears the noise on draft night when the 5-11 Cowboys are picking #10 and Oakland makes the pick, especially if they pick a QB.

    That was Dak being stupid.

    Jerry didn't throw that pass.

    I think Jerry called down to Linehan on the pick and said get Coop another TD

    I think that play was all on Dak. He should have run or just thrown the ball away.

    I guess that means Kellen Moore is the next HC for Jerry to train.

    The fans are very quick to say, just throw it, just throw it. There you go, you can't throw it when someone's not open.

    Totally agree just cant help think Jerry was pushing to feed the ball to Cooper to make the trade look like he was a football genius. He lives to be recognized as a football guy
