    They arent vetting the players properly. If ray lewis was drafted here would he have all of a sudden not cared about football? Doubt it

    Nice observations by Casillas but not anything most of us here on this board haven't been crying about the last 10-15 years

    Fine when he says it isn't about money.

    BS when he says its about winning.

    It's about him being a celebrity. If it isnt, quit the radio and let your coach have the authority he needs.

    Jerry's quote i mean.....

    This is 100% true.

    It’s not just about winning with Jerry. It’s about winning HIS WAY. If he can’t win HIS WAY with him as GM. He doesn’t care.

    he isn’t willing to take a hit to his ego, to win.

    I mean seriously. How hard is it to hire a GM? But he won’t do it.


    That means his ego. Is more important than winning.


    And that is why he loses.

    Not sure how you're supposed to have a win or else culture when poor play is met with kind words from the boss.

    He has to sell his product and defend his picks.

    Therefore, ordinary play is rewarded with praise and big contracts.

    Go ahead and fill in the rest......

    Jerry's ego is this teams #1 priority.

    Winning is 3rd at best.

    Cowboys are like the strippers of the NFL.

    All show and pretty, but little success and payoff in the end.

    The cowboys are doing what their main purpose is at this point. When the team stops generating the money they do that’s when we will see a change in philosophy. Until then the NFL is fine with small market teams winning.

    You're joking but my point stands. We draft soft losers like trysten hill like he gives a damn about football. The front office does it to themselves. Instead of getting a Watt that was projected a top 20 player we get Taco. Nothing about Taco said tough but Jerry saw it :facepalm:

    Yep. This is how I feel, too. I thought for a while we might be able to overcome that spotlight, but we couldn’t do it. And now we’re back to doing the sort of things that don’t even really give us a fighting chance.

    The problem with the Cowboys hiring another GM is, guess who would be picking that GM?

    Yep...Jerry Jones.

    :confused::eek::confused::(;):rolleyes:

    True and he's gone on record questioning why hire a GM when he still is going to have the Final Say.

    do you think jerry is a control freak?? :D
    The cowboys are his toy, and he is gonna play with it and control everything.

    Jerry does get bummed out when they lose, so root for dallas to lose alot! Then enjoy when they show jerry at game.

    Old boy struck lightning in a bottle and has been garbage every second since.

    I did enjoy the lightning though.

    Very much appreciated it.
