"Uh, Do Thay Have Some Good Hamburger Joints In St. Louis?"

I stopped really caring about pro football when it dawned on me that your average fan cared more about the game than those playing it. That being said, the Cowboys are done as long as that man is in the sideline. You readers are more motivated to click on Random Thoughts to see a hot girl than than the team is to play for him. Edit: And for the life of me I don't understand those that blame Jerry Jones. He's put a vast array of talent on the field - that's his job. Getting them to play is the problem. Edit #2: And this in Sports Illustrated today on Jerry Jones' spending: "[WR Roy] Williams' deal ratchets up the Cowboys' 2010 current cap obligations, with 33 player contracts signed, to $138.8 million, which is $27 million more than any other team in football -- and that doesn't include the monster contract due premium pass-rusher DeMarcus Ware early in 2009; he could become the highest-paid defensive player in football."

Cowboys. Meh. I was driving to Mineral Wells from Gawd's Country, whilst listening to the Cowboys' game on the radio, and then I saw this wagon train on the side of the road, so I turned around and took some pictures. Damned Cowboys. The wagon train was much better. Now, them were some real Cowboys, sort of.

I just keep hanging on to that thread of hope that they will be like back in the 60's and 70's...Damn Cowboys... Where is Tom Landry when you need him?

Wonder how hard the high-dollar tickets are to sell right now at Jerry's new stadium? The New York Giants will beat this team by 200 points.

Sure get rid of Wade. Now, name a decent coach that will come and coach the Cowboys when he knows as soon as he arrives he will have to rip off his own nutsack and hand it to Jerry Jones.

welcome to parity... every week a new team looks like a world beater. Blech.

Pro football is good, and I love my Cowboys, but the college game and HS are the real deal... and everyone knows it.

Go Bulls!
Go Horns!
Go 'Boys!
GO SOX!!!

The Bridgeport offense would have had its way with the Cowboy's D today!

Why fire Phillips? The root of all Cowboy problems is Jerry Jones. Sure he'll fire Phillips and had it over to Jason Garrett. But things will remain a mess as long as Jones hangs around - forever!

Yeah, You can get a good burger at White Castle but you didn't hear it from me because I don't want to be called a rascist.

I love Cowboy fans. 3 losses and it's "fire the coach."

You guys have to be the most fair-weather fans in the NFL. But I agree w/ some of the commenters. They'll never be winners again under Jones. He's a cancer.

Oh, R and R: HBTC?? :)

They have been more motivated the last 2 years under Phillip than any year since Johnson. Jones is the problem.

Re: your edit.

I agree that Jones puts talent on the field and that turning that talent into a cohesive unit is the problem. However, Jones will never attract a winning coach to the franchise to "get them to play" because he is too involved in day-to-day coaching of the team, a la Al Davis.

And the Raiders have sucked for years. I'm just saying, Jones is the problem. Face it. Jimmy Johnson was the best thing that ever happened to that team and Jones ran him off and hired Switzer to cruise to a Super Bowl win on Johnson's coattails. Nothing but misery since.

I think if Jones sold the team, I might become a fan.

Jerry Jones is a real piece of white trash! That comes from a over 50, white woman. Since Jerry Jones bought the Cowboys, he's thrown his money and his weight around thinking his money was going to buy respect. Yea, respect from his ganster players that constantly need to be bailed out of jail, need drug rehab, or couseling because they make so much money they just don't know what to do with themselves. I say scrub them all. Start over, the only players allowed are the ones that haven't been arrested or in trouble with the Law and the ones that actually do some good in their community. I feel for the tax payers that are having to pay for the new stadium, as long as Jerry Jones has anything to do with it the facility will never be utilized to it's fullest. Please Mr. Jones, Sell the Cowboy Franchise to a worthwhile Owner!!!!

Will we ever consider athletes with character as well as talent? These athletes are much like Jerry Jones who is rather short on character as well.

Unfortunately, 7:50 PM, those expensive seats will probably still sell easily--there are always well-heeled high-rollers who want to attend a football game as part of "a scene", rather than really being a fan. College and HS football is about all I watch nowadays. And to think I used to watch almost every game the Cowboys played during Landry's time. No more.

10:05, Dec. 21, 2012 is on a Friday and teams don't play that day so how can they all lose on a day they don't play?

I'm also personally disappointed at EDIT 2. The article clearly states that some of the players making up that $138.8 Mil will probably be gone by then and that 2010 is a non-cap year as of right now.

Are you joining the Liberal Elite Media or the Liberal Regular Media with your sensationalist statements?

Double Fake George Will
