Re: Jerry Jones' top gaffes - a retrospective

That is a good read. If Jerry would come out and say something like, "I took a chance on Pacman because I really thought he would turn a corner personally and really help the Cowboys. I was wrong," then I could at least respect him for it. But instead he conducts a BS "internal investigation," and flat out lies about the severity of the situation to save his own plastic face. I got a chuckle out of how different the "facts" of the incident were when you compared Goodell's investigation to Jerry's.

Re: Jerry Jones' top gaffes - a retrospective

To tell you the truth, I don't understand a lot of your points sandtrapp. Yes, the Cowboys have won super bowls. Yes the Redskins have won super bowls. Okay. Anytime we beat you, we listen to the "excuses" why it happened. We have'nt heard alot about this last game we played. I've not heard you give us any credit, but thats alright, the win is enough. One of the questions you did'nt ask was, " If your owner was doing some pretty lame s**t, would you go on a cowboys board and try to convince them how brilliant your owner was?" NO, I would'nt. There have been times these last few years when it has been hard to be a Redskin fan. DEION SANDERS. Do you think we were turning a blind eye to Snyder and talking about how much money he's made and what a great owner he was when he made that stupid move? If he were the owner during Gibbs first go-round and he ran him outta town after winning a couple of super bowls, do you think we would say years later after not even winning a playoff game in 12 years, "Yeah that Snyder is a smart guy look at all the money he's made." Of course not. We are REDSKIN fans first and foremost. We want what is best for our TEAM, and if you don't think Dan Snyder or Vinny Cerrato catch HELL around here if they F'up, then you're not paying attention. We don't turn a blind eye to our owner around here. He seems to have matured and has us heading in the right direction. Now if you believe Jones has done the same thing, fine. You have a right to your opinion. But if you think you can come on here and convince us he's anything other than an egotistical, meddling owner, who after Jimmy Johnson won him a couple of super bowls, decided he, as an owner, could win no matter who the coach is because he was the BRAINS behind those victories, then you're barking up the wrong tree. Have you noticed we're not talking about the actual games? Why?

Yes Dallas is on there for consecutive losses as well, and I did read that. But that is not the ONLY (there's that word again) category that Dallas appears in on that page. Dallas appears in MOST WON, MOST PLAYOFF GAMES WON, MOST CONSECUTIVE PLAYOFF APPEARANCES etc etc....
(and yes Most Consecutive Lost too)

But my POINT was that the ONLY place on that page you see the name WASHINGTON is under MOST CONSECUTIVE LOSSES.

Comprende amigo?

So using your logic, the Buffalo Bills have the greatest dynasty of all time.

All that was covered under #9 when the idiot fired Jimmy Johnson who was responsible for those Super Bowls.

If there were no draft picks involved do you think he would have suspended him? I don't. JMO.

Re: Jerry Jones' top gaffes - a retrospective

I'll bet the Cowpaddies get fined again later for Pacman, too, when he does something dumb.

However, it is not really a fine for the 'Boys. They are paying Pacman's salary to the NFL, not to Pacman.

Hey sandtrapp
Please notice that if we follow your stats, we see that the Cowboys will set the record for the longest playoff losing streak if they lose this year.

Re: Jerry Jones' top gaffes - a retrospective

This is great. Jerry Jones: "I think I am unreasonable sometimes relative to my passion and my interest about the team,'' he said. "I admit I can be unreasonable and, if you will, illogical sometimes."

HAHA! Bye Cowgirls!

Could have had many many more since 1989 then just 3, if he had only not fired Johnson. Oh, the team would be worth even more than the 1.5 billion.

BTW, you haven't won a playoff game since 1995 because of his firings and hirings.
