    Why Garrett....i meant Jones has to go......PLEASE.....

    Wow - that was a crazy ending to a crazy game....then at the post game new conference, Garrett reversed into his shed blame role again and blamed the loss on Tony Romo....what a joke....There's a reason that players leave dallas - its the three headed monster of Jones, Jones and garrett.

    I mean seriously - lets look at this from the moment.....Why would Garrett give the OC and Romo the ability to change the play at the line. In that situation, i would rather run into a 9 man front which he been running into the majority of the second half. We wanted the clock running, they had no timeouts, and there was 3:47 left. Instead, he throws a near pick that was a controversial overturn. That play by itself should have shocked those idiots back into reality and had them say, okay, that was close, lets run this clock out.....challenge your line to do the job. Instead, he audibles into a pass that has an unblocked end from the side your throwing too.....IDIOTIC situation that the Head Coach should have eliminated. He should have demanded that it be a run regardless. Worst case scenario, you run three plays, and punt giving the ball back to the packers with 2 minutes from their own side of the field. If you got one first down, then games over. Instead - he audibles, gets the heat, passes a bit behind Austin which btw if that was Dez, it would not have been intercepted. Dez or Witten would have went and fought for the that ball. Austin needs to be cut in the offseason.

    Now onto Jones and Jones....what a couple of freakin idiots.....Here's a guy that played college football 40 years ago and somehow that makes him a good evaluator of football talent. This is not a business that can be quantified by a resume. He's still trying to get out of Jimmy Johnsons shadow. Everyone is realizing just how incredible that team and the talent that Jimmy put together was - Barry Switzer won a super bowl with that talent....Unfortunately, as long as these two idiots are running this football team, we will not win the super bowl. I mean they've singled handedly been responsible for the worst trades in team history.
    Lets look at a couple of failures....

    In 2000 traded 2000 and 2001 first round draft pick for Joey Galloway.
    In 2001 draft, that was the #7 pick. Below that pick, there was 12 All Pro players picked in the first round and 2 future hall of famers in Hutchinson, Reggie Wayne not to mention a guy at the beginning of the second round named Drew Brees. Instead they traded down to get more crappy picks and select Quincy Carter.
    In 2008 dallas trades 1st and 3rd round pick for WR Roy Williams.
    In 2009 NFL draft ended up being a 20th pick. a few obvious players that stick as impact players after All Pros Alex Mack, Percy Harvin, Clay Matthews, Jarius Byrd, Max Unger, LeSean McCoy, William Moore.

    The real problem that Dallas has had, is trading away high draft picks to stock pile late round drafts picks that end up being stabs that suck. They cannot judge talent good enough to follow the Patriots format, so they need to follow the path of previous championship contenders.....Pick the best available player or in some cases, pick by need.

    2012 no different....they moved up 8 spots by giving up the 14th pick and the 45th pick to get Morris Claiborne. Well right now, he's not even starting. Thats not a good sign. There were a few good players in between those picks that we could have taken. Brockers, Irvin, Coples, Kirkpatrick, McClellin, Reiff, Decastro, Zeitler, etc etc.,,,'

    The real problem is not Garrett or even Romo - the real problem is Stretch Arm Strong Jones not being as good of a talent evaluator as he was a Oil Tycoon....if he were, we would be sitting at 11-3 not 7-7!

    Re: Why Garrett....i meant Jones has to go......PLEASE.....

    You can argue that Jones is way to involved in the HC's job, but hammering the talent on Cowboys? I'm not sure how you can justify that. The team has a ton of talent on offense, and they are decent on D but the injuries are just too much right now.

    Every time the Cowboys lose America is a little better place for it.

    I enjoy watching the bandwagon fans of the 90's pretend they are still a fan of this team.

    Jones is an arrogant P.O.S., has a team that has done nothing in the last 20 years to garner the copious amount of media attention his team receives.... I love watching him squirm in his luxury owner's suite..

    Dude, the injuries are everywhere at this time of the year. Take a look at the Packers right now. No Rodgers, Cobb, Finley, Bulaga, and Matthews was gone for a good part of the year yet they found a way to win yesterday.

    Are you sure about the talent? On offense, they've got a good running back, one good receiver, a good but aging tight end, a mediocre line, and a qb prone to bad mistakes.
    On defense, they've got an average D-line with one good pass rusher, one good linebacker, and some highly paid, but under-performing DB's.

    They've got middle of the road talent, imho.

    They are in the exact same situation as Dallas, so I'm not sure where you're going with that comparison.

    Re: Why Garrett....i meant Jones has to go......PLEASE.....

    What little I listened to him, he was going on about the offense. Yea, it was dumb to be passing, but didn't the Packers score on every possession of the half? It seems there would be plenty of blame to go around.

    Pretty sure that the Cowboys offense still had Romo, Dez, Austin, Witten, and Murray. Sure their D didnt have Sean Lee but the Cowboys had a 20+ point lead and had no business losing to a majority of the Packer's 2nd team offense.

    I stand by what I said, D is ok, offense's talent level is relatively high. Bryant & Witten are top 5 in the league at the respective positions, & Murray, when healthy, is right up there. Romo is obviously the big point of debate but statistically he's a top 10 qb and has been his entire career. The O line rebuilding project is in the middling stages, a very average group in the NFL right now but have tons of potential.

    I think Romo is a good stat stuffer QB but has yet to prove he is clutch when needed.

    You're understating the injuries on Dallas's D. It was truly the battle of the 2nd team's when GB had the ball yesterday.
