I can counter with one reason why he should not:

The moment he does, the board of directors will rise as one and toss him out the window of his high-rise office.

Jerry should trade up to get him.  No matter what it takes.

The most popular team? Wut?

12. He might know a good coach or two.

Quasar: The most popular team? Wut?


TFA says "most popular and polarizing team."  Despite well over a decade of mediocrity, they get the big tv games, and are broadcast across the country and talked about in national media.  They sell the most merchandise and remain the most popular if you average out multi year periods (sales and popularity vary year to year with the best performing teams generally at or near the top).  They are also one of (if not the) most hated team in the NFL.  They are kind of like the Yankees.  Popular with people across the country, but generally hated by most fans in a given specific area.  This is from October 2013 from Yahoo Sports:

According to a Harris Poll released this week, the Cowboys remain the most popular NFL team among Americans who follow football. In a survey of 2,577 adults conducted last month, came out on top for the sixth consecutive poll, which is done annually (except 2012, when the poll was not done).

This could be a super nova level thread.  Yet another Cowboy thread slamming Jerruh as a shiatbag, casting turds Romo's way for always and forever choking at the wrong time, with the usual white knights weighing in with their time honored counterpoints.  Add to that the secret ingredient -- Johnny Football -- with all the redneck, white trash baggage he and his inbred family brings to the table.  Yes, this will be one for the ages.
 
2014-01-09 08:06:05 PM  
11. A fresh start - The Cowboys are disappointing. Romo is a choker. The coach is a puppet. Jones is a buffoon.

Nice one.  Should get plenty of bites.

Please do draft him.  I hate Johnny Football and the Cowboys.

It could work. Both only care about money, so they're off to a good start there

erupt2001: Please do draft him.  I hate Johnny Football and the Cowboys.


So if he fails in Dallas, is it him or the running of the team?  We'll only know in 5 years.
 
2014-01-09 08:33:11 PM  
heh if Dallas was to go after Manziel it should be interesting to see what kind of deal they make to drop low enough to do it.

/would love for them to come out on the wrong end of a Hershell Walker level trade.

/yes i am still bitter after all these years
 
2014-01-09 08:37:37 PM  
I like how half of those reasons boil down to "for the lulz."  After all, I'm pretty sure that's the only reason you'd go for him.
 
2014-01-09 08:40:25 PM  
Manziel will go to Jacksonville. They're desperate for a QB but even more desperate to put butts in the seats. Maybe they'll lose a tarp or two.

Wadded Beef: Manziel will go to Jacksonville. They're desperate for a QB but even more desperate to put butts in the seats. Maybe they'll lose a tarp or two.


That...actually wouldn't be a bad thing for those reasons, assuming one of the higher teams doesn't take him *cough* Texans *cough*.

"We don't have enough Cowboys threads today ... let's make up a topic!"

"How about a Jerry Football / Johnny Football thread?"

"Make it so!!"

Jerry's not a shiatbag he's just a moron who knows nothing about building an NFL team, the only time they won was because Jimmy built the team.
 
2014-01-09 09:04:55 PM  
it's really a super good idea to use your high draft picks on skill players when the basic composition of your team, o-line and d-line aren't very good or are injury prone. it always works out well to put a highpriced qb behind a shiatty line, or add some star cornerback when your line couldn't stop an 80 year old from 5 yards per carry.

This. Kiper (yeah, I know) already has Manziel going to the Jags at 4, and lord knows that team needs SOMETHING to give it an identity.

Well, he DID know enough to hire Jimmy in the first place.

He does? Yeesh. Nothing against Kiper per se, but I now feel like I need to coif my hair and don eyeglasses as seen in American Hustle.

Let's go through this list, just for the heck of it:

1) Good point, actually. Romo is getting older, he's gotten injured the last couple of years, he gets beat up behind that Swiss Cheese they call an o-line, and they're going to need someone to take over for him long-term sooner rather than later.

2) Kid does have skills, but it's a question if his head is screwed on quite right sometimes

3) I'm pretty sure Jerry Jones never has to worry about lack of attention, Manziel or not

4) Regardless of how much media and fan attention is present in college, there's really no comparison (outside of Alabama) to the national attention (including ridicule and criticism) given to the NFL. *ESPECIALLY* the Cowboys. He might be able to handle it better than others, but who knows.

5) True. Question is: what type of value would you get for Romo and his contract? And of the teams that would be able to pay highly for QB help, would JJ really want to send a player he loves to, say, Cleveland?

6) Does Jerry really care about the Texans? (This is a serious question; I actually don't know the answer)

7) Can't argue with the marketing aspect

8) On one hand, Manziel could bring #2 legitimacy. On the other, maybe that number is cursed.

9) "They fight, and fight, and fight and fight and fight... fight fight fight, fight fight fight... The Dezzy and Manzie Show!"

10) True

11) Ah, yes, the requisite "Troll the Cowboys' fans" line *sigh*

Which is kinda weird, because the Jags have the 3, and the Browns have the 4.

Luck has more to do with that hire.

Cleveland would be a decent spot. Flip first rounders and something to sweeten the pot...

So at the end the writer biatches about too much publicity and being force fed stories about the Cowboys in his I just invented a cowboy story to fill column space and force feed you a cowboy story

Brilliant!

Cowboys do need to draft a QB but they are not dumb enough to draft him

That and both Jerruh and Johnson were old college teammates.

Swap 1's with Oakland, this years 4 and a conditional 1/2 next year (depending on whether Dallas makes the payoffs)?  Probably not right with the chart but I'd take it as a Raider fan.

/Beats paying top 5 money for an eventual disappointment

Probably have to throw in a player for cap reasons.
Done deal.
Wouldn't shock me seeing Jerry in action all these years.

Trey quit Fark during the last Cowboys troll, I thought. I have no idea where Di is, she has some sort of radar for Cowboys threads ordinarily.

For my part, I've had enough as well. They're out of it, their season is over, it's time to put the brakes on and wait until Jerrah does something breathtakingly stupid during the offseason. If by some miracle that doesn't happen, we'll all be refreshed for August when the trolling begins anew.

Please let this be the last one for the season. When I'm feeling some sympathy for them you know it's gotten out of hand.
