IRVING, Texas -- The question was posed to Cowboys owner Jerry Jones in a way that created a logical fallacy, a "loaded question":  "Can the Cowboys sign both Dez and DeMarco?" Jerry was asked. "Let me put it like this: It's going to be a challenge," Jones said of re-upping both of Dallas' biggest-name free agents. "But is it -- you use the word `financially reasonable?' No. Is...
