    Well, I have a new more sympathetic perspective on him. But, I still have zero confidence he's going to stay clean. He's got one heck an agent though.

    As a human, I'm proud of him for being able to turn his life around. Hopefully he keeps it up.

    Dude is a freak edge rusher. The biggest bummer with him is what could have been. We missed several years of this guy's prime, and he's still playing decent football despite all the time and coaching he's missed.

    Good for Randy. I'm happy he was able to get his life under control. Clears up a lot of debates I had in the off season.

    Yep.

    He's screaming off the edge on some of these plays.

    It's a matter of time before he is viewed similar to Lawrence.

    Great story, I'm all for RG 100%. It's really easy for fools here to talk smack about someone when they don't walk in their shoes...

    Great story. Not a lot of janifht on the cowboys side of his revah. I thought we might get some bits and tidbits on having Charles Haley as his mentor and the troublesome connection the two had...


    I found myself irritated but more patient with Gregory during the saints game. I wasn’t until the last onside penalty I thought it might be a good idea to pull him out the game to clear his head but once I saw the replay I didn’t believe the penalty was justified.


    I’m rooting for deal. I live in the inner city and I see substance abuse quite often and it saddens me. Ppl choose the drugs over life . For them Maybe it is life.

    Gregory's story struck a chord with my son. Whether Gregory every reaches the lofty expectations he is capable, he (Gregory) has inspired my son to address his personal demons... And that is worth an awful lot.

    Jerry Jones made a phone call and that phone call has changed Randy's life. Hate him or love him, you can never deny that he loves this team and the players on it.

    Thanks for linking that article.

    Another reference to Jason Garrett crying, by the way. I said in that thread a week ago I didn’t think that was a thing, but I think maybe I’m wrong about that and it’s actually a thing.

    Anything in there about not committing stupid penalties that almost cost your team a huge win?

    Good read. Better insight into his ordeal.

    Towards the end, actually, the Saints game was brought up fwiw.

    I had to read it a few times myself, but my interpretation of that passage is that Jerry is the one that cried in their conversation.
