08:02 AM ET 08.24 | Bradie James thought by now he'd have at least a championship ring for each hand. And why not? He had been drafted by the Dallas Cowboys, with their history of Lombardi excess and an owner willing to spill as much money as necessary for the cause and a long list of Hall of Famers just waiting for a next generation to join them. He knows now, as he prepares for his ninth season in Dallas. "I think the entitlement kills us," James said. "Our alumni, our former greats have made us America's Team and we reap benefits that we haven't earned -- all the way around, as individuals, as a team. Those guys earned it. We just think we deserve it." As James and I stood there talking Sunday night, it hit me. The Cowboys are Jennifer Aniston.

Jen Engle can't write her way out of a paper bag.

That analogy is going to be lost on just about everyone. Most women know Jennifer Anniston but don't know anything about the Cowboys. Most football fans know the Cowboys but don't know anything about Jennifer Anniston other than what she looks like. I sure can't explain it.

I like the honesty and he's DAMN right. Since their last superbowl they have put out a crappy product year after year after year. And what is the common denominator in all of that? Hellooooo Jerry.

As a Texan STUCK in virginia....I can honestly say- there is no better place than TEXAS....now that we are passed that......what Bradie didn't realize is that even though the owner we have will spend lots and lots of money.........he is an IDIOT of a GM! I can't help but think where we might be had he just let JJ or Parcells have all the power....

August 24, 2011  08:22 AM ET

Hahahahaa!!!!

Classic thread right here.
