Jerry Jones' first act when he bought the team was to fire Tom Landry, the only coach the team ever had until then, and hire a crony. While that was Jimmy Johnson, it still seemed dirty at the time. Firing Johnson after he won two Super Bowls in a row proved Jones is an idiot. The only other owner arrogant and stupid enough to be his own GM is Mike Brown of the Cincinnati Bungles.

Rhypskallion: rickythepenguin: farbekrieg: snyder on the other hand has brought how many titles to dc?


I'll never forget Tony Kornheiser's on-air orgasm (airgasm?) when Washington resigned Dan Reeves circa 2005. he (Mistah Tony) was counting rings. "we're gettin' the band back together, maaaan!"

You mean Joe Gibbs, not Dan Reeves.
Tony Kornheiser made his reputation in the DC area in 1991. The Redskins dominated their first win, and he wrote a 'going to the superbowl get on the bandwagon' story. At the time he meant it to sort of be a joke about how passionate people would get after a single win--but every week the team won, or the loss was not significant, and eventually they won the Superbowl. The weekly editorials talked about the bandwagon, the musicians, the shiny polish, the trip to the playoffs, the snacks for the trip, he named names of fans and made good jokes for the time. It was must read stuff in the DC area at the time. He was joking on the air about those columns, which are probably still on washingtonpost.com if you care enough to find them.


I had those all saved when I was a kid. The cartoons they had with them were even great.

Dear Jerry,

Don't you EVER change.

Love,
Someone who hates the Dallas Cowboys with the fire of 1000 suns.

Dinobot: The defense aint that bad... The oline, time clock management and a headcase as your qb is...


Tony Romo is not a headcase. He's frighteningly consistent. He has a bad game occasionally, just like every other QB. He's had 2 games with high INT totals this season but there's a story behind them. Statistically Tony is a solid QB in pretty much any situation.

rickythepenguin: i remember the game vs I think Green Bay (?) a few weeks ago where all game, Bryan Billick was killing the 'Boys for nto getting playcalls in quickly, and in that final drive they were like, "doop de doo, 45 seconds left, no timeouts, doop de doo, let's just cazh our way up the line, doop de doo, clock ticking, no call game in, god forbid we spike the ball...."

nutty.


You're probably thinking of the Ravens game, where Dez Bryant screamed at the referee for 15 seconds while the rest of the offense was lining up.

PluckYew: Please stop comparing Jerry Jones to Al Davis. Al was a football genius until 2002 or '03 by the time he passed he had forgotten more about football than Jerry will ever know. I hated him for moving the team to LA, costing them their identity and mystique.

He turned a used car lot and minority stake in a fledgling football team into a recognizable brand and for a time, the winningest franchise in professional sports. Jerry Jones took an established national brand and turned it into a .500 football team because of his ego.

There's worlds of difference between the two and comparisons are unfair to Al, who I wouldn't piss on if his ashes were on fire.

Jones to Dan Snyder references are legitimate.


No chance Al gets this much credit. I know he's gone and it's nice to think of him in memory, but Al was a nutbar.

This is karmic retribution for firing Tom Landry.

After a bountiful initial yield, there will be twenty years of famine.
