it's safe to say that no team owner had a worse day than Dallas' Jarry Jones. Not only did he have to contend with the million-dollar question from NBC's Bob Costas -- basically, why hasn't Jones the owner fired Jones the GM yet -- but he was also locked out of his team's locker room following the Cowboys' 19-13 loss to the still-undefeated Atlanta Falcons and was seen pounding on the door!

I would have paid money to see that! LMAO!

I'm sorry to all you Cowboy fans but when I read about J.J. getting "accidentally" locked out of the locker room I had to laugh as it brought a picture to mind of a furious J.J. pounding his fists on the door to let him in.........LOL

Or maybe they wanted to avoid.............

I don't think it was an accident. I'd rather he get locked out of his GM office!!!

TH,

We're 'kindred spirits' as Mike Brown is a tyrant as well. Won't let that power go too someone ,that actualy 'might know' more about drafting and hiring-firing than both owners.

November 5, 2012  01:42 PM ET

I wish they would do that too Mike Brown,But ,obviously? He already 'knows' he's not welcome.

November 5, 2012  01:42 PM ET

They would have opened the door for the pizza delivery guy!

GSH,

Nepotism takes a bigger part of Cincy's team and alot of the Coach's have been there for over 10 years, with some, 25+ years on the payroll.

They just need too fire the ones that have made it a 'life-long job security',That just doesn't cut the mustard.

This idiot.[Mike Brown] gave Marvin lewis a '2 year extension',so he can juggle the Coaching staff around any way he wants, 5-11 season won't make a difference as far as Mike Brown owns the Bengals.

Yeah, Pizzahut is alot better!

The 1 thing JJ does very well,is not take 'bad news' constsntly,He gets pi/ssed after 2 years of the SOS and fires the m/fkr.

On,The Bengals?

Our owner is worse,he's got 'entrenched coachs' that should be let go,but he won't do it,Marvin Lewis's job is as safe as a Baby in an incubater.

Marvin and Co', Will be back next year with the same results,and it's been 10+years for Lewis too get his shittogether,and always an epic fail.

No matter ifn,they lose the rest of the season? Marvin Lewis and Mike Brown 'and cronies' [Family] will still linger like a stale fart.

I completely understand both situations, yours with your displeasure with Brown and the Cowboys with J.J. I feel the same way with the Bears Virginia McCaskey and Ted Phillips, they finally made a change firing J.A. and so far it seems Phillips isn't hindering new G.M. Emery.

J.A. was more worried about the Salary cap than talent on the team and never addressed the offense until he traded for Cutler because he listened to Lovie who coming from a defensive background always wanted defensive players. Emery know it takes both sides of the ball to the big dance and IMO takes Lovies input into consideration but ultimately decides on the players he acquires himself and that is what separates Emery from J.A. to this point. We will see how Emery does with the Salary cap as he has some huge decisions looming after the season ends and that will determine which direction the Bears go in the upcoming seasons.

The only saving grace for Virginia with the Bears is she realizes she doesn't know enough about Football to call the shots, her downfall was entrusting Phillips to appoint the G.M. and Phillips doesn't know football like he thinks he does as was apparent in all the years sticking with J.A. We Bear fans are hoping the blind squirrels "McCaskey & Phillips" have found their nut "Emery" only time will tell.

Welp,
I look at it this way,yer owner,Obviously,Gives more responsibility for the GM-HC,Than Cincy.

And she's so old,I think about Al Davis in his tweening years.

How many HC's Have the BEARS had for over 10 years[ with a losing record?]
Since the 1st Lombardi game?

November 5, 2012  02:29 PM ET

And Mike Brown has ALOT of money,before reaching the Salary cap.

I just hope i live longer than he does,cuz the oldfknprick just won't give any'control' too anybody than his family.[count in losing Marvin lewis as thebastard child.]

Probably been that long I'd have to look it up to be sure, the only I know is we Bear fans suffered through the likes of Wannstedt and Jauron from 1993 to 2003, Wannstedt's record was 40-56 from 1993 to 1998 and Jauron was 35-45 from 1999 to 2003.

If I had of seen it, I would have LMAO, too. Carrot is not the RKC, in my opinion, and JJ is not the RKGM, but they are what they are. They may not win another game this year, and if they don't, then JJ is getting what he deserves.

All of these Cowboys fans in Facebook are idiots...."I'mma Cowboys fan 4life, and we're gonna win the next game!!", and other such BS statements. I'm waiting now on getting bashed on something I said.......hahaha

November 5, 2012  02:42 PM ET

Jones did admit that, had it been someone else as GM, he would have fired him a long time ago.....So, I expect the status quo to remain as it is for awhile, including Carrot as the HC.

I won't bring in David Shula, But Marvin has a fantastic resume of 72-79-1,[10 year record and counting.]
