WARNING: READING JERRY’S COMMENTS MAY CAUSE FANS TO CONSIDER TAKING IRRATIONAL ACTION TO HARM SELF. READ AT OWN RISK.
After a disappointing season last year, all indications were that the Cowboys were going to go to work on improving their team right? Brought in new coaches for offense and defense. But don’t forget (no matter how you try) that Jerry Jones is the owner and he said a few things while at the NFL Combine in Indianapolis, that give me the impression that Jerry isn’t really sincere about improving his team. Not if it cost money.
First of all, Jerry thinks the Cowboys were Super Bowl contenders last year. That’s not a good sign. Here is Jerry’s logic, we almost beat the Giants, in two unsuccessful attempts, and the Giants won the super bowl therefore we are right there in contention. Jerry lives in his own little world. JERRY
Reality is that in their own division the Cowboys were swept by the Eagles (games not even close) and swept by the Giants while just barely beating the struggling Redskins twice. The only good team the Cowboys defeated all year was the 49ers in O.T. With that win, they went 1-4 against teams that made the playoffs last season. To call them Super Bowl contenders is delusional.
The problems on defense, particularly pass defense, were well documented but Jerry is starting to feel better about how they played evidently. Jerry suggest that Terrance Newman may come back at the right price. NEWMAN. I can just hear the Cowboys fans release a collective groan with that comment.
Jerry went on to defend the play of Newman and Scandrick by implying that they weren’t used the right way in Ryan’s new scheme. Jerry has taken a look at the price of free agent CBs and decided that if he can get Newman cheaper then he represents value. You may have a point there Jerry, if Newman could cover!
Jerry claims Newman still has his speed but if that is true, then Cruz of the Giants is without a doubt the fastest human on earth because he left Newman grabbing air. Jerry is the one who over paid Scandrick on his contract last year so naturally Jerry will defend his play. It’s either that or take responsibility for his poor decision and if you know Jerry, that ain’t gonna happen.
Newman "posterized" by Cruz but according to Jerry's world Newman still has his speed.
Remove all sharp objects from Cowboys fans because there is more from Jerry and it gets even worse.
Laurent Robinson was a very productive WR last year for Dallas particularly in the high priority redzone and Cowboys fans pretty much agree we need to get this guy signed. Jerry indicates that while Robinson was valuable last year, he could be replaced by a young receiver, Andre Holmes.
Holmes has been on the practice squad and to say the least is unproven as a player. Is Jerry serious? Romo really connected in a unique way with Robinson while they displayed a chemistry that shouldn’t be taken for granted nor assumed can easily be replaced.
The fact is Robinson is looking to get paid and Jerry is looking to get by on the cheap. Could Jerry be bluffing in an attempt to sign Robinson for less? Possibly but we are talking Jerry here and if it sounds too stupid to be true, then you don’t know Jerry like we do.
As Cowboys fans, we have heard this talk from Jerry before in the off season where he says he feels good about the guys he currently has on the roster. Then the team goes out and stinks up the joint missing the playoffs yet again. How many times will we fall for it?
Have hope that Jason can some how influence Jerry to improve his team and for sure stay away from sharp objects during this off season!
