I've lived in Dallas since 1986, and have witnessed the rise to Superb Owl victories, and the subsequent slow death spiral into mediocracy that has defined the team's last two decades.

Jerry is a meddling old fool that thinks he knows how to manage a football team, and NOTHING will change until he's incapable of doing what he does.

The franchise is the league's most valuable, but not from a winning percentage perspective.  Slick marketing, and a nice stadium definitely are making that happen.  They aren't doing it based on their record.

From 1996 to 2017, the Cowboys have only 3 post-season wildcard wins.  The team's combined winning percentage since 1996 is below .500.

But they are still America's Team, and sell out every home game, and Jerry is still able to command $15 for beers, and $10 for hotdogs, etc. which means the fans don't give two shiats about anything other than showing up on the Jumbotron during commercial breaks.

YAY mediocracy!!

Jerry Jones likes to trade away his good players.
He's putting together a resume to coach for the Browns.

Jesus, subby, I thought he traded away someone else! Just a mild panic, nothing big, IT'S FINE! But yeah, we already knew this, not news, this comes to my inbox blah blah blah.
 
2018-10-11 05:15:04 PM  
The really good owners admit they don't know shiat about putting together a football team and hand it off to others to do that.  Then there's Jerruh, who thinks that he can put together an O-line because he got him some glory hole back when he was in the oil fields.

Sorry, Di, subby apparently lacks a clue. Us long-timers know that Jerruh Jones wants to be be GM *and* coach, as well as owner, and is pissed that NFL rules implemented after George S. Halas died prevent him from being all 3 at once, so Jerruh has to settle for being de-facto 2 of the 3 (and Jason Garrett has him by the balls with regards to the head coaching job, anyhow).

I coulda sworn the o-line came together as *Stephen* took more of the drafting & front office work

Which would also but him as the one to ask about releasing the DBs in question, as well?

Just askin' questions, up here

Wiping your ass and missing the toilet bowl counts as putting together a resume to coach the Browns.

He's still there, ain't he?

Consider for a moment, if you will : the second longest tenured Cowboys head coach, behind the only Landry himself, is Jason Garrett

They're not America's team. Stop. They're the team for dipshiat Texans and morons here or there who buy into the glitz. The rest of the country rightly despises the clown rodeo.

Ha, a lot of them are, for sure. I'm a Skins fan myself. When I first got into pro football, the Redskins had a lot of Texans on their team, Charlie Taylor, Diron Talbert Kenny Houston, etc. I think Dallas had one, maybe two. And yeah, they way everyone down here thought Landry was God made me crack up when ol' George would get under his skin so bad. It was fun in school - I used to make posters when they lost, get to school early, park at the back of the lot facing the entrance and put that poster on my windshield so everyone could see "Vikings, 27, Cowboys 13".

It seems to me that the three players mentioned in the article were not doing particularly well in Dallas, at least not well enough to justify their large salaries.

And possibly the change of scenery has rejuvenated them.

So much this. I love insulting the Cowboys too, but this is silly. The team regularly got in cap trouble during the Romo years absorbing dead money and having to restructure contracts to get under the cap since Jerry liked signing big names. Now they're trading away players so they can recoup value on them and to clear the cap room they'll need when their key players aren't on rookie contracts.

Why must the rest of the NFC East play down to the level of my Giants, which are on their 8th farewell Eli tour?

You want the eagles to be relevant? Because this is how you get the eagles to be relevant!

Jones and Snyder should be disqualified from the league, as they meddle so much in operations and hamstring their teams. Maybe they could just play fantasy football instead of doing that with actual NFL franchises.

Then again, I am a Giants fan, so I'm getting a kick...
