    Jones made it clear before the draft started he wasn't looking for a quarterback. No mystery here.

    Why do we care at all about the Cowboys?? Must be a slow day, so give the Cowboy fan an article I guess ...

    If Manziel wasn't an Aggie we would have be spared all this for the last several months ...

    Jerry & Johnny DO have the ego thing in common though ...

    Here we have proof of the old adage: A man who employs himself as his own attorney has a FOOL for a client! I will add to that and say the same thing about an owner of an NFL team who is also the team's General Manager!
    Take a look at this quote:
    “There’s no way any quarterback comes in here and beats out Romo, you know that,” Jones said Thursday. “Romo’s contract, as well as our commitment to him, means he’s certainly going to be the quarterback for the Cowboys for several years to come. There’s no doubt about it.”
    Do you know why what Jerry said is so true? I'll tell you why, it is because JERRY is so in over his head as a General Manager! Only a blatant fool would give a man who has done NOTHING TANGIBLE to be rewarded with a contract as big and rich as what Jerry suddenly gave to ROMO a year or so ago. He is right though, because if not for that contract, Johnny Manziel would be a Dallas Cowboy today. The mistake Jerry made when he gave Romo that contract,...is still reeking of stupidity and inexperience in dealing with the running of that NFL franchise.
    Makes one wonder if there is not some other reason Jerry won't pull the rug from under Tony. Oh well, I could care less, but I will say the fans who pay their money and show their allegiance to the Cowboys deserves better!

    This Cowboy fan didn't want Manziel. But there are a lot of things I didn't want or don't want, about Dallas; didn't want Romo (still don't)', don't want JJ as GM, don't want JJ as owner...

    Yeah, every time I go to Ft. Worth, with two daily papers in D and Ft. W., you can't find any report about the teams in Houston.....if there are any articles, it's buried on the last page.
