Found April 10, 2013 on Football Extra Points:
Even though I try to stay impartial when it comes to NFL teams I always seem to gravitate towards my beloved Dallas Cowboys.   I cannot help it.  It's like watching a train wreck and a burning building at the same time.  Every time I get ready to drop them like a bad habit I have that little voice in my head saying "don't lose heart,  Romo will come through,  Miles Austin will play a full season and Jerry won't screw up the draft".  But I fear that all of my prayers and voodoo magic have fell on deaf ears.  In reality the Cowboys have been a 500 team for the last 13 seasons and the last time they won a super bowl I was a junior in college.   Which wouldn't be so bad except I will be 40 this November!  Worse than that I don't know how they can get better because they keep making the same mistakes over and over again.  Poor draft picks, holding on to "quality" players too long and always seeming to collapse in the most cru...
  • Ya know? Jerry has been a fantastic owner. Great business sense and a true love of the game.

    There comes a time, when one must place success of the organization ahead of personal ideations.

    That is where we are today. This is definitely, a turning point. Not only for the fans, they've jumped ship. But, for the team, there must be a measure of success. IOW, they must have a desire to play and win. Of late, it seems they just show up for a pay day. Worse, they get paid without performing to a minimal standard.

    JJ holds the cards. Question is: how long will he have anyone wanting to see "him" play? Time is short as JJ
  • It ain't happening, sorry. Ricky Billy Jones will die at the wheel just like his idol ,Al Davis. They say substance abusers first have to admit they have a problem. Ricky Billy will never admit he has a problem, because that would be admitting he is WRONG.
  • Jerry Jones needs to change every thing about the team ...#1
    get a head coach the one he has is awful he is the reason they lose most of the games they play ....#2 I love Tony Romo but he is not the man they need .......#3 get some players that can read a play book ....

    I am a die hard Cowboy fan and have been for years but Jerry Jones is running to team deeper every year when he dont make the changes he need s to............Jason G. needs to go ......
  • Great idea... never gonna happen. The only thing bigger than JJ's ego is his stupidity. His alzheimers onset and plastic surgery meds are jacking with his reality. He truly believes that he is a football man. Wow, is he sadly mistaken. He should hire a real football GM whose last name does not start with JONES. Jerry... stick to your party plaza, busses and girls. Your money will actually let you close those deals. Boycotting the Arlington turd is a fantasy that will never turn into reality. Go Rangers.
  • One of Jerry's many problems is that he thinks that this team is close to being a super bowl contender. He sees that we should have beat Baltimore, they won the super bowl. Oh, we must be close. WAKE UP JERRY. If you are the football man you claim to be, you would see that this team is not a great team.
  • Jerry needs to remember this: "Success breeds complacency. Complacency breeds failure. Only the paranoid survive." But he will not take this to heart because his psychological make-up will not permit him to accept that he can make a mistake. About anything. Cowboys fans will need to suffer and wait for regime change.
  • If I had the funds, I would invest in another football team for Dallas Texas. Dallas need another PRO football team to counter Jerry Jones.

Dallas Cowboys: 2013 NFL Draft first round predictions

The 2013 NFL draft could not come fast enough for Dallas Cowboys fans, but that does not mean we cannot make some predictions about what will go down on draft day. In 2012, the Cowboys traded up to select cornerback Morris Claiborne. While that turned out to be a smart move, I do not see the Cowboys trading up in this draft. Staying put and getting the best player available is the...

Truth about Cowboys' dealings at right tackle

IRVING, Texas There are two problems with the reports that have the Dallas Cowboys simultaneously negotiating a pay-cut contract for incumbent right tackle Doug Free while also negotiating a free-agent contract for prospective right tackle Eric Winston: Problem 1: That simultaneous orchestration doesn't make sense. Problem 2: That simultaneous orchestration isn't happening...
