    Absolutely right, and I'm glad that the risk-taking is gone. Give me solid players like Awuzie and Conner Williams over all or nothing risks like Gregory and Jaylon Smith, that don;t pan out for years, if at all.

    Yes, an impulsive, poorly thought-out gamble, exacerbated by injury and scheme change.

    Much less the absolute worst one in the entire group. He'll always be the guy we drafted instead of Jason Kelce.

    Ouch and double-ouch. Who uses a 1st round pick on a part-time running back? Just the thought process involved in that is insane.

    Those that you have brought up are all well in the rear view mirror. Taco Charlton is the best example of a recent draft mistake. And I'm putting that one on Marinelli more than Jerry, though it's his fault for listening to him.

    While the Cooper trade bolstered this season it’s not clear what his future will be here. That’s the kind of risk Jerry is still capable of that for a change actually worked but it illustrates the riverboat gambler is still much in play.

    What's "not clear"?

    It worked spectacularly well. The Cowboys fleeced the Raiders. They got a top 5 receiver who's still a baby, and they did it for what? Pick #28? And doing so, he saved his 2018 season. I had reservations at the time and I'm glad to admit they were unfounded and I was totally wrong. When Jones knows a great deal when he see one, that's a good thing, not a bad one.

    Yes, it did work well. The point was though the Riverboat Gambler is still in play. The next one could cost us. Just because it worked this time doesn’t mean Jerry has learned or become smarter.

    No offense, but it sounds to me like you're trying really hard to find a negative on this one.

    No, but it could have been . The point remains it’s an example we haven’t moved past Jerry’s poor instincts just because this one worked out.

    I think the point is that Jones saw an opportunity to take advantage of and he did. I don't think your point has much support.

    But I thought you said Jerry’s riverboat gambling risk were a thing of the past?

    And they are. That wasn't "riverboat gambling", that's called a smart trade.

    Unless you want to initiate a trade embargo on all things going forward? Is that what you're looking for is this yet another attempt to criticize Jones, even when he's making smart moves?

    Just because one of his risk works out doesn’t mean he’s done taking risk which could thwart the team was the point.

    You said his risk were a thing of the past. This trade is a great example it’s not simply because it worked out.

    It's called a trade. Like I said, you want to try to put the guy in a no-win scenario. That's your issue, nobody else's.

    Stash, all conversations aside, this fan would be still looking forward if the Dallas learned top shelf open field tackling techniques. They would get very hard to beat then...no matter what geneology one pictures in the past.

    so whats the point of rehashing something from 19 years ago? you bored, you like poopstirring? I mean I cant care less about anything that happened that long ago for the purposes of rehashing it.. so no team including us picked tom until the 6th round because they were just throwing away pick on player hardly used and had zero idea hed be a HOF player still playing..thats luck..not skilled drafting..heck was it Drew Henson or whomever was starting over him at MI that was supposed to be the Shizzle?

    just more negativity , go get root canal bro..;)

    Cry some more about it then, since it's obvious that you can't handle anyone talking about it. Your issue, not anybody else's. Some people just aren't mature enough to be able to talk about everything to do with the Cowboys and have to just cherry pick the good stuff.

    You’re still missing my point. You said Jerry’s riverboat gambling risk was in the past. This trade is a beautiful example it’s not.

    And Jerry won on this one. But that’s not my point.

    Yep. If he could have put up stats in Dallas similar to what he did in Seattle before Dallas, and Tampa after Dallas, he might have been a Hall of famer

    Why do so many still think Jerry is still making personnel decisions? It's Stephen with valued input from mcclay.

    No it isn't, but you keep banging that drum.

    Your "point" is another failed attempt to try to blame Jerry Jones for something, even when he gets it right. You have issues when it comes to this, and it now extends to trying to attack the guy even when he does something right. That's sad.

    You've got it so bad that good, solid trades are now "riverboat gambling risk". And in the sad scenario you try to paint, trades are off-limits because they constitute "riverboat gambling risk".

    You've warped your own reality and obsession with Jerry Jones so badly that you see ghosts and "bad things" that are actually good ones.

    You need to give this whole thing a break.

    Because some want to attack Jerry Jones at every turn, even if they have to make things up to do it.

    It’s still riverboat gambling even when it works. And Jerry gets credit for this one because it worked.
