    Released TO then made the idiotic Roy Williams trade.

    Horns fans got mad at me for calling it a dumb deal but it proved to be a dumb deal. Dude never had a 40-catch season for the Cowboys.

    Say what you want about T.O., the guy was an unbelievable talent.

    I’m not saying I fully believe his claims that Witten and Garrett and Romo were the sole cause of TOs release, but I definitely do think there’s at least partial truth to it. Those three guys had a well-documented bromance.

    TO was no angel and he was a diva, but man, those were some fun years when he had a star on his helmet

    Can we all admit that Garrett, Witten, and Romo had an active cabal around here for a decade? Why can't people admit this?

    One of Jerry's biggest mistakes is giving up on T.O. too soon. It was the coaching staff that needed to be replaced, dummy. :facepalm:

    TO had regressed a bit, but to release him and then use significant draft and cap resources for a LESSER player was beyond idiotic.

    The value of any player to a team is not just stats- yards and TDs. Ultimately, the value of any player IMO is directly related to how well they help the team WIN.

    If winning is the end goal, talent alone is NOT enough to make a team a contender. Talent must be part of the total puzzle. Mental and physical toughness, unity of purpose, having the right role players and depth all play huge roles in winning. Until proven otherwise, I don’t think Jerry and his sidekick son really know what they’re doing regarding roster building to win. Those 3 SB rosters were built by a HOF coach and I’ve yet to see JJ prove he can do that on his own. He’s an expert at making money. He’s below average as a talent evaluator and team builder.

    TO was a great talent who I don’t think was a fit with the team Bill P was trying to build.

    Watching him run in open space once he got moving was a sight to behold.

    100 percent. However. TO was going off in the media saying throw the ball to me and when Romo did Owens dropped a huge third down that cost us the game. That’s how I remember it at least

    When TO made a business decision and gave up on a play in his last season he had to be cut. I was clamoring for it all that season on here.

    TO managed to run himself off other teams as well. Trying to figure out how it was Garrett fault when people say Garrett was a puppet HC?

    Great talent to the end, but a horrible teammate. Too bad he played a team sport.

    It isn't that I don't believe they conspired to get rid of him. I feel watching that interview there a lot of details missing from T.O.'s perspective, moreso I think there had to be a confrontation that he simply "forgot" about. I think T.O. tends to get into a huffy exchange every now and then because he always acted like a wounded person that lashed out. Really the guy was so emotional I can't see him not getting into verbal fights.

    T.O. was never a real Cowboy. He was a player that got to wear the uniform for a few years.

    Garrett wasnt the coach here at the time, it was Wade.

    What Garrett did to TO, was the same thing that Linehan did with Dez…
