Re: ESPNDallas: Cowboys Have Lowered The Bar

If Jerry would just hire a real coach and GM, and step out of the way, they might be dangerous.

Sounds familiar huh?

Stop with the optimism. It doesn't suit you very well.

Re: ESPNDallas: Cowboys Have Lowered The Bar

I'm a little uneasy piling on just yet. When they've lost 7 or 8 games, I'll happily do so. All of the negative publicity might just motivate them to get on track, it has in the past. If not, they might just head towards a major free fall & that would be fun to watch, after the debacles we've dealt with here in the last decade.

They are still a talented team & they are facing another talented but distraught team sunday w/head coaching/leadership issues. If dallas wins sunday, or for that matter minnesota wins, they're 2-3 & right in it. Losing this game will be huge for either team, but I'm still not ready to call either of them done.

I'm with you on this. While I've thoroughly enjoyed watching them tank the past few games, I think they'll win a few that we all think they shouldn't win. They do have the history of the December collapse, so I'm hoping that trend stays true.

I just REALLY want to see Minnesota take it to them and that will put out any little fire they had left.

Re: ESPNDallas: Cowboys Have Lowered The Bar

I'm going to be happy either way on Sunday after this game. One of these teams will be completely cooked when it's over.

We could only hope.

Basically Garrett and Romo remind me of an analogy I had a while back... They both remind me of Hideo Nomo. A little unconventional, and almost came out of nowhere, they were pretty good until people figured him out.

From then on, it worked out OK for him for a while, but then just kind of fizzled out.

I think Garrett and Romo will do the same...

If after the season, no. I see Norv going there after SD cans him this year. This assumes, Cowher to Carolina and Gruden to 49'ers or Browns.

If in season, say they lose the next 2, then yes Garrett is it.

Yeah, they even had someone suggest trucks with signs (and no, I am NOT kidding! Don't worry mlmPertert, I forwarded them your Kapipal link )

The difference, in my opinion, was Snyder had over time fluctuated back and forth between hands on and hands off. If he felt he had a good staff, he will be hands off, if not, then he gets caught up in it. With JJ, he wants to be hands on all the time, remember bringing in TO, even Parcells definitely did not want him. I don't think JJ will ever step back. Which is fine by me. (His son does seem to have a good football head though, so he may eventually hand the reigns to him).

Re: ESPNDallas: Cowboys Have Lowered The Bar

Cowboys are a mess. Jones is a fool for paying Garrett just as much as his head coach. Phillips can't even go over and tell him to stop calling so many pass plays. IMO they just need to clean house and bring in a real head coach.

Matty you are right......Jerry will never give up control, like Dan Snyder now has done. Jerry will always think he is smarter than the guy or guys he hires. If it ever becomes a question of Jerry hiring a bright GM or coach, Jerry probably wont hire the guy. I think he is a little like a young Al Davis. Also working against Jerry hiring a guy and taking a back seat is the fact that Jerry won Super Bowls early when he had control. His Ego is too big to let go of the controls.

Re: ESPNDallas: Cowboys Have Lowered The Bar

I just can't see Cowher there, not his speed. He's going to want a certain level of autonomy and JJ isn't going to give that up. Carolina definitely seems like the logical landing spot for The Chin for many reasons.

Re: ESPNDallas: Cowboys Have Lowered The Bar

I love busting the chops of all of the Cowboy's fans that are front runners. They are all quiet now. Love it. Where is the Cowboy fan that used to come on this sight? Lucy? You got some splaining to do.
If you are a Dallas Cowboy fan and you do not live or ever lived in Texas or ever played for Dallas or do not even have family that lives in Texas...then you are front runner. Look in the mirror...that's right...you!...you are a front runner.
One of my friends here at work is a Dallas Cowboy fan and a NY Yankee fan. HA! What a joke.

Re: ESPNDallas: Cowboys Have Lowered The Bar

Deziree Bryant possibly out this week.


Coach Wade is worried at least.

Cowboys Corner: Bryant and Gurode might miss game

Bryant and Gurode might miss game

Receiver Dez Bryant missed another day of practice. His right ankle, which he injured in training camp, is sore again.

"I am worried that he might not be able to play," Cowboys coach Wade Phillips said. "...Itís been on and off. Those high-ankle sprains tend to last for a while and sometimes donít get completely well."

Starting center Andre Gurode also might join Bryant on the sideline Sunday. He injured his knee on an interception at the end of the 34-27 loss to the Titans but did not have trouble with it until practice Thursday. The Cowboys sent him for an MRI.

"That's a concern, obviously," Phillips said.

Starting left guard Kyle Kosier would start at center if Gurode is unable to play. Kosier had never played center until the Cowboys cut backup center/guard Cory Procter during the off-season. Undrafted rookie free agent Phil Costa would be active to serve as Kosier's backup. Montrae Holland would start at left guard.

Bryant has had a series of nagging injuries so far in his young career. He also has a rib injury, though Phillips said Bryant's ribs were not a concern.

Bryant, the Cowboys' first-round draft pick, initially injured his ankle July 30 during training camp in San Antonio. He missed all of the preseason, playing his first game in the season opener against the Redskins. Bryant is the team's fourth leading receiver with 17 catches for 180 yards. He has returned a punt 62 yards for a touchdown.

"Anytime you're not practicing, it hurts, as far as young players knowing assignments and what to do," Phillips said. "Now, heís worked hard in the classroom, and I think thatís helped him. Heís still practiced quite a bit. Thatís also helped. Weíve also had walk-throughs and things like that that we do with the players that heís been able to participate in."

The Cowboys could activate receiver Jesse Holley off the practice squad for Sunday's game. Holley has been practicing with the first team special teams.

Safety Alan Ball (shoulder), linebacker Bradie James (knee), defensive end Igor Olshansky (knee) and tight end Martellus Bennett (ankle) were limited in practice.
