Your Cowboys question of the day: Can Jerry Jones resist the urge to draft Manti Te’o? News out of the NFL combine, according the Dallas Morning News, is that Jones plans to sit down with Te’o. That would not be a big deal, really, if it weren’t for everything we know about Jerry “Sideshow” Jones. He is all about the splash. Wherever the cameras are likely to be flashing, he wants his reconstructed false teeth-fortified smile in the picture. While 31 other football teams are there to build, well, a football team, Jones is in Indianapolis to do what he does best. Grab attention. Alabama pretty much exposed Manti Te’o and the rest of his teammates as horribly overrated. And, regardless of what you might hear while driving through the state of Alabama, the Crimson Tide is a college football team. This is the NFL, where Saban sucked and where Te’o is more likely to be a Bobby Carpenter clone than another Clay Matthews III. It makes perfect sense to anyone following the Jones circus (whi...

  • Boy, you said it. This is another example of the HUGE Jones ego at work. Te'o, or TKO'd for short, was "knocked out" by the Alabama offensive line, not even close against the Class A comptition. And what about the drama surrounding his escapade with the great, but totally weird "girlfriend"--more drama. The boy must be just plain stupid. Cowboys have enough of those already, starting with Jones himself, the Head Clown that gets out of the little clown car driving in circles in the side ring. NO TKO'd in Dallas....please NO!
