NFL  > Dallas Cowboys  > ...getting old...
October 28, 2012, 07:37 PM
Who wants to defend them this week? Isn't this getting a bit old? Week after week. No matter who is to blame, someone wants to defend ... and deflect.

For a rich history, this team sure is lack luster.

One of the reasons Jerry Jones has job security as the Cowboys general manager is that he believes he is free to take risks, also being the owner.

"That is one of the luxuries of my position as owner as well as the ultimate decision maker, general manager and president, I can do that and take the losses and come back for more," he said this week at Valley Ranch, talking about his management style.


My question to J.J. would be what about your fans who also suffer through those losses, aren't you afraid of losing the fans who support your team.

I feel for you Cowboy fans, you can change coaches, acquire players through the draft and via free agency but the one thing that rarely happens is a change at the owners level.

Nothing to defend... There isn't a team in the league good enough to overcome the stupid mistakes this team makes week after week.

I don't understand those that continually try to defend this team. It's been 16 years since they did anything. I think the days of defending this sorry franchise are long gone. Stick a fork in em once again!!!

When you go from watching Brady one game to Romo the next it's like watching a surgeon and a butcher.

The Cowboys played the Giants tough. Time just ran out on them.

Nothing to defend.

Romo is having a bad season and Bryant continues to show flashes of brillance and then runs boneheaded routes that makes Romo look bad.

The only positive is that down 23-0, they did not give up and came back.

My biggest issue in this game was the play calling when Dallas had the ball with 1:19 to play and 2nd and 1. Garrett was sitting on 3 time outs...why not run the freaking ball???

If Dallas gets that 1st down, who knows what happens?

This team makes way too many blunders that they are not good enough to overcome.

Lets face it...they are an 8-8 team at best until the offense improves. And that is amazing considering it was the defense that ruined us last year. Now our O can not do squat.

I think time ran out on the Cowboy's season.

no defending here... this is shaping up to be another sad season. 8-8 might be accurate or could be worse. turnovers absolutely killed this game. but even if dallas has more time, i'm sure they'd find a way to lose - it's the way they play ball... how they roll. i now some of romo's INTs weren't his fault, but some were. he's had one 5 INT game and one 4 INT game. regardless of the reason, someone needs to be held accountable (receivers/QB/someone!) garrett is going to lose his job this season too.

I wish the GM would but we all know that will never happen.

The problem with you is that you think too much.

Not unless he sells the team. Jerry is not content to sign the checks like most other owners.

That darn spinny thing.

Jason Witten is amazing, too bad when dez finally gets a catch, he gets screwed by a finger! OUCH! hella good game to watch!

October 29, 2012  11:09 AM ET

Awwww....the Boyz' did really well there for a time. :( Stop being so harsh. I know they lost the game but at least it wasn't a humiliating loss. Example: Chargers losing to the Browns by 1 or the Rams losing to the Pats 45-7.

[b]**Discalimer: I am NOT bashing the Chargers the Rams or the Browns...maybe the Pats a little! ;)

My question is......what is a "RKG"? Are these people the RKG'S? Are Bernadeau and Livings the RKG's? They were someone's backups for a reason. I'd never heard of them before Jerry signed them to lucrative contracts. Same with Peprah and Sims. I'd never heard of Ryan Cook or Eric Frampton, either. I've heard of Peter Frampton, tho..........hahahaha

Jason Carrot is, in my opinion, NOT the RKC. But, the man love JJ has for him and his family will continue for quite some time, regardless of whether the team will ever start winning or not.

Looking at how well Wade Phillips has done with the Texans defense, it makes me wonder how much he was collared by JJ during his tenure with the Cowboys. I think.....again in MHO....that JJ was just waiting for a good excuse to be shut of Wade, so that Carrot could be inserted as HC. JJ is a silver tongued devil, and could sell a cup of hot sand to someone needing water in the desert.

Carrot's play calling, abandoning the run, and not playing to Romo's strengths is a downfall for this team. They refuse to boot leg Romo out, and he's pretty good at throwing on the run.....or was. They need to get the adrenaline flowing, and these stick in the mud plays just ain't getting it....

I call for Carrot's head! Or at the very least, let the OC....whoever it is, if there is one (other than Carrot)....call plays on a season gone south already.
