    Some of the threads here are ridiculous.

    -Replace Zeke with Pollard....Pollard fumbles on the most important drive of the season

    -Give Cooper Rush the start over Prescott.....Rush and white are pretty much near awful in preseason

    -Get rid of Cooper , he doesn't deserve to be paid and start Gallup........Gallup is open because of Cooper, and Cooper did cross 1K this year himself and from what it seems wasn't healthy the second half of the season


    -Fire Marinelli and give Richard all playcalling duties.....got your wish and the defense regresses


    I swear to god, some of you may criticize Jerry Jones about being a terrible manager, but from what i've seen, some of the ideas here are way worse.

    I never wanted Romo out. I wanted Garrett out since 2008 though.

    Its probably not as bad when a fan makes a suggestion that doesnt pan out rather then a billionaire who has control of a team and cant get things right no matter how many times he fails.

    Yeah cut Emmitt Smith and replace him with Troy Hambrick.

    Good times.

    Proper pronoun use and CowboysZone sometimes do not go hand-in-hand.

    It's all about connotation! The use of his name is meant to prove that fans are never satisfied when things can clearly get worse.

    This team has only had two good QBs since Aikman and both of them were accidents. :muttley:

    Their attempts to actually address the position have been laughable, yet some seem quite confident in Jerry & Son just trading up and drafting a new one.

    I fully admit I thought Hambrick would be a version of Derrick Henry and saw Emmitt breaking down. That’s my biggest football miss

    I dont think any sane fan wanted Romo out. He was a legit top 5 quarterback in his prime. We wanted Garrett out 5 years ago.

    By the time Jerry decided to build a team supporting Romo it was little to late due to injuries. Granted we did have a couple good years when the defense wasnt pure trash

    well, with zeke and cooper it’s an argument that the money could be better spent elsewhere. i doubt any one is saying pollard and gallup are better players, but there are certain realities with a salary cap.

    dak was a disaster in philadelphia and flat out hurt the team with his play and if cooper rush is that bad that he couldn’t do any better then he shouldn’t even be on the roster.

    the richard and marinelli thing is a stupid thing created by jerry jones. there were whispers all season that there was friction between coaches, and i would almost guarantee that it was there...plus probably between garrett and moore as well. all a direct result of jerry’s meddling and forcing and internal strife between coaches is not exactly conducive to winning.

    Fans will be satisfied when we go to the Super Bowl. Not all of us have adapted complacency with the status quo. And I never wanted Romo gone. With a better coach he wins at least one ring. In fact, with a better coach, maybe Dak has a ring.

    Wanted Romo out after the 2012 season ending loss in Landover. Just didn't feel they could win it all with him from that point in time.

    Never wanted Garrett and he could possibly be what kept Romo from a Championship.

    That should explain enough.

    This whole board hated Romo from 2011-2014 and wanted him gone.

    The truth lies in-between these two extremes in how Romo was actually viewed while a member of the team.
