View Full Version : Jerry Jones: David Buehler is to blame for his own injury

This public statement could be considered an all time low even for Jerry. And WHO called the lockout????

Cowboys owner Jerry Jones is laying into the team’s injured kicker, David Buehler.

On Wednesday Buehler aggravated the groin injury that has been plaguing him this season, and on Thursday the Cowboys put Buehler on injured reserve.

Then, on his 105.3 FM radio show on Friday, Jones suggested that the injury was all Buehler’s fault for failing to properly prepare himself.

“Let me just say this, I’m frustrated because you would expect players to, and I understand injuries, but he has known all along how to prepare and how to get into shape and how to prepare himself and be ready to be a kicker,” Jones said, via the Dallas Morning News.

Jones didn’t say exactly what he thinks Buehler should have been doing differently to keep himself healthy, but he did say that the whole point of having Buehler on the roster was that with the new kickoff rules, the Cowboys were counting on Buehler to regularly get touchbacks. Now that’s not going to happen.

“It’s frustrating to have your kicker injured,” Jones said. “He’s a valuable asset, especially with the rules as they are right now. We’re going to be playing some key away games out in the weather and we’d like to have him kicking in them because he is a better kickoff guy than [Dan] Bailey. I’m very frustrated. It is his job to stay ready to play and prepare himself so that those kinds of things, for what he’s got to do, don’t come up.”

Those comments about Buehler are just the latest reminder that as long as Jerry Jones is signing the paychecks in Dallas, he’s not going to hesitate to call out anyone on the Cowboys’ payroll.

Message said to be hanging on the entrance of the Cowboys' training room:

What a tool.

What little respect I had for Jerry Jones is completely gone after this. He certainly is a class act.

CND, you nailed it. Even if the guy didn't keep himself in as good of shape as he could have during the lockout, Jerry was one of the primary forces behind the lockout! Regardless, I don't buy it. Sometimes guys get hurt. The fact that this is a groin injury, a muscle I would assume he used quite a bit in his kicking motion, makes Jerry's claim pretty weak.

He is the T.O. of owners. Put a camera on him and he can't help but say something stupid.

So you have kept an outshape back=up kicker on your roster for 10 weeks and he is the one at fault. :spit::vincepalm:

Buehler is terrible. Not sure why he had a roster spot in the first place with the new kickoff rules.
