"Speaking with the Dallas Morning News after Sunday’s loss, Jones admitted that the decision to fire Ryan isn’t looking too smart at the moment.
“We thought that it was best for us to go in the direction that we are and that doesn’t look good right now,” Jones told the paper.

Hindsight for Jerry Jones
Now let's hear the one about how "we" thought it was a good idea the fire real pro football GMs and hire the owner as the team's GM, but that's not looking good...

Here's some hindsight for you, Jerruh...http://www.animated-smileys.com/smileys/disgust/animated-smileys-disgust-004.gif

One of the richest morons in the league. Way to throw your 97 year old DC under the bus, you tool.

Kiffin was an odd hiring anyway.....well, fitting for dullass

Jon Gruden will be the next HC of the Cowgirls, Monte Kiffin DC.

I guess we could say he is the antithesis of Bob McNair.

Knee jerk owner as opposed to the patience of Job owner.

The boys have won more games than the Texans this year though. :wadepalm:

And they won a super bowl forty years ago. :kubepalm:

In all seriousness, I still can't understand why a Cowboys hater would care. I don't doubt that I'm wired differently, but there is only two other teams that I have a nice emotional interest, Texans and Vikings. Other than that I'm pretty indifferent. Certainly I wish losses for those in our division, and there are teams that I will tune in with casual interest and perhaps root for, such as the Forty Niners, Denver, Seattle, Saints, Ravens, and that's about it. I guess it could be surprising, but New England is on my indifferent list. I give them props, but I'm rarely interested in watching them unless they are playing one of the teams above.

I always root for the Skins, Eagles, Giants and Texans.

And whomever is playing against the boys.

Seriously, does that make me a hater? (rhetorical question I suppose)

Actually there was a time when I could root for the boys. Before Jerry's insulting treatment of Tom Landry. A great coach who deserved better.

If the boys fans are allowed to live in the past then so am I...:)

I don't like the Cowboys because of their fans. I was an Oiler fan growing up as a kid. I constantly heard all the crap about how the Cowboys are a real football team and the Oilers weren't $hit. All of that from Houstonians, not people from Dallas. So, I learned to hate those traitorous bastards and the team they love and I've never lost that feeling. And now that I'm old, cantankerous, irritable, and generally don't give a goddamn what anyone thinks of me, my attitude about the Cowpukes grows worse.

I will say though there are a couple of folks who post on this board that are Cowboy fans that are very nice people. I sometimes wonder if I hurt their feelings when I post such hatred towards the Cowpies. But then I realize that if I do, they need their man card revoked. That, and they are probably used to me being a $hithead about it. :lol:

You don't hurt mine cause I am a heartless individual so no worries there

So am I. So, I guess it won't hurt anyone's feelings if I say your are a worthless troll? Of course, if I call you a worthless troll, it would actually invigorate you causing you to make more meaningless trolling posts.

I feel like I should give this more serious thought, but I've just lost my train of thought. I think I should just leave it at you being a worthless troll, otherwise it might appear I'm actually putting in effort trolling you instead.

:cheese:

This **** again? you people need new material seriously, Jones didn't just
walk up to Landry and proclaim your fired, he discussed with Tom that it
would be in the best interest to make the coaching change and Landry
agreed shook Jones hand and the two went their own way



You might want to peddle your revisionist history to a forum with less spite toward the Arlington Cowboys...

Why Tom Landry died a Giants fan

Tom Landry died a … Giants fan!

Yes, according to the widow of the legendary Cowboys coach who says in a new book that Landry was so disgusted by Jerry Jones’ treatment of him during and after his 1989 firing that he spent the rest of his life rooting for Big Blue instead of America’s Team.

At least I wasn't the one who got us moved to the smack forum you ****ing idiot.

If you're gonna troll some, troll where it might do some good. There's to much Cowboy hate around here for your ignorant posts to have a real effect.

No, I think I'll use the history and truth to smash the lies of those who
spit at the Cowboys in jealousy

Most Cowboy fans disagree with you. I guess they are acting out of jealousy as well.

The bigger the lie, the more it is told the more likely it is to be believed?? false propaganda
is the new truth for the brainless who believe it

Bringing in Kiffin was a weird choice, you would have thought they would bring in another 3-4 guy.

Passing on Shariff Floyd in the draft after making the transition was even stranger.

Jon Gruden will be the next HC of the Cowgirls, Monte Kiffin DC.

Would Gruden really go there without an agreement to make his own pick for GM? He doesn't strike me as the kind of guy to let Jerry run things.

Passing on Eric Reid was also a dumb move. Why the hell would you transition to a Tampa 2 defense without any safeties? That made no sense to me.

Not to mention they signed Carr and drafted Claiborne to play a man coverage scheme and then switch to an almost purely zone scheme.

Jerry really screwed the pooch with his DC shuffling.

With the benefit of the aforementioned hindsight it's pretty clear they were correct.

No, like you they are acting out of stupidity, because like you they are brainwashed into believing the lies...

I don't know about the rest of you guys, but I feel proud and honored that TexansTalk has the only intelligent Dallas Cowboys fan as a member. :bravo:

Alicia Landry claims that, shortly after the coach was dismissed, Jones confiscated the luxury suite the Landry family had been given free by Murchison when Texas Stadium was constructed in 1971.

Shortly afterward, the book says, Landry’s eldest son was informed he would no longer be able to buy the six season tickets at the 50-yard line that he had purchased every year the stadium was open.
Classy move, Cowboys.

Reversing field? Jerry Jones says it WAS hard to pass on Johnny Manziel (http://www.dallasnews.com/sports/dallas-cowboys/headlines/20140606-reversing-field-jerry-jones-says-it-was-hard-to-pass-on-johnny-manziel.ece)
Question: Did you say a second ago that was a really hard decision about Johnny Manziel?

Jerry Jones: "Well, it was. Yes, it was. First of all, I couldn't believe he had fallen there. And secondly, we had spent a lot of time, I'd spent a lot of time. He's the kind of player that can be that kind of difference-maker. There's no doubt in my mind that he'll be a successful player. We have in Romo what I consider to be the better quarterback. But there's also the future, there's also insurance if you don't have him. If anybody could have adjusted to Manziel's style, we could have because we're a lot like that with Romo."

Seems like an about face.

Here are some Jerry Jones quotes from previous Dallas Morning News stories on the subject:
"The fact that we got Romo more production with that quality of player, took any of the positives (away from drafting Manziel). There's no way any quarterback comes in here and beats out Tony Romo."

“Flair, flash, show business was never a consideration here.”

"We didn’t spend a lot of time in this draft considering Manziel. We have a big commitment to Tony. We feel that anything we look at with quarterback would be down the road, in the future with a quarterback."

“He’s (Manziel) got a chance to knock it out of the park. We all know this. He’s not just a quarterback, he’s a celebrity. He’s Elvis Presley. But at the end of the day, there’s no way we are going to be without [Tony] Romo for four or five or six years.”

“As you well know in here, Romo is by contract as well as by commitment is certainly the quarterback for the Cowboys for several years to come. There is no moving around that. I don’t care who you draft, that’s the way it would have been. That was going through our minds from the get-go. That’s why we didn’t spend a lot of time at all in this draft considering Manziel.”

“I’m not that gunned up by what a rookie quarterback can do for us this year. That takes times. This isn’t rebuilding time. As we look down the future, yes, but for coming in here and helping us win games right now, those odds are too far for me to get excited about. In my view, our best shot is a healthy Tony Romo.’’

Jones, a University of Arkansas graduate, also had a surprising response when asked about the the Razorbacks' game against Texas A&M returning to AT&T Stadium next season.

Here's a tweet from Robbie Neiswanger, who's listed on his Twitter page as being a sports writer covering the Razorbacks for the Arkansas News Bureau/Stephens Media.
Jones: "Nothing has made me prouder with the Cowboys, or anything .. than to know the Arkansas Razorbacks are playing in that stadium."
— Robbie Neiswanger (@NWARobbie) June 6, 2014
Wow! Who knew? Gotta love Jerry being true to his school and his admiration for Broyles, but you'd think those three Super Bowl wins and having a $1.2 billion stadium would have ranked a little higher.
Had Manziel been a Razorbackhttp://2.bp.blogspot.com/_YiTXJUlpnjo/S7pwJ9Yml1I/AAAAAAAAB0c/5OUTLoxwS34/s400/razorbacks.gif, Jerruh would've draft him...
