Last week: 17 (+0) Record: 3-5 The Cowboys will stop underachieving once they fire Wade Phillips…oh wait… they did that 2 years ago. In an interview shown before Sunday Night Football, Owner/GM Jerry Jones said that if the GM were anyone other than him, he as Owner would have fired him by now. However, the next day, he said he will never step down. In between, the Cowboys lost yet another winnable game, this time on the road against the undefeated Falcons thanks, in large part, to Orlando Scandrick making several terrible plays. Scandrick is the cornerback that Jones signed to a 5 year, 26 million dollar contract with 10 million guaranteed in the 2011 offseason, despite only having 11 mediocre starts under his belt. I doubt any team would have given him 10 million total on the opening market the following offseason, let alone guaranteed.

Jimmy Johnson rips Jerry Jones for GM comments

Former Dallas Cowboys coach Jimmy Johnson says Cowboys owner Jerry Jones takes way to much credit as being the general manager during the team's Super Bowl years in the 1990s.

Underachieving Cowboys hope for 2nd-half change

The season that once looked so promising for the Dallas Cowboys is halfway done. After losses in four of their last five games, the Cowboys have plenty work to do just to have another .500 season.

Contrary to what everyone was saying at the beginning of the season, this is not the Cowboys year to win the Super Bowl.

While their defense has stayed relatively consistent throughout the year, their offense needs to get on track...

I think the formula is he’s got to find a medium ground and delegate more authority.” Jones already made it clear...

Cowboys VP Stephen Jones says team is going in a good direction

One of the problems with the Cowboys is that they are like alcoholic who continuously denies they have a problem, so they can never get the proper help.

That’s ridiculous,” Jones said. What...
