08:30 AM ET 10.06 | Former Washington Redskins quarterback Joe Theismann took some shots at Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo and Jerry Jones during a Tuesday radio interview. On Friday, Jones responded. Theismann was most critical of Romo, telling Sportsnet 590 The Fan in Toronto that the Cowboys signal-caller "isn't a very good quarterback," "makes bad decisions with the football" and "has too many bad games." He then called out Jones, criticizing the Cowboys owner and general manager for making poor decisions because he's "not a football guy." During an interview on 105.3 The Fan [KRLD-FM], Jones said he didn't have anything to say in response to those comments, but then followed with, "That's Joe." "I've had him critique us before and those weren't necessarily on point," Jones added, "so I really don't have any comment on that."

You mean like an actual job? Jeez that's a bit harsh isn't Otis? Not much you're qualified to do with half a leg and half a brain

Since Al Davis' passing, the Raiders no longer have the most incompetent owner.

Incompetent GM; definitely an F!
Incompetent Owner; done some good things, but keeps getting overshadowed by his GM, D+!
He has a ways to go before he ranks with Al Davis and George Halas in their last years or the old man Bidwell for all his years. Current Jets ownership is giving him competition.

Can we hire Lawrence Taylor to break Theismann's other leg and Jones' neck?

Don't forget Robert Irsay who traded franchises with Rosenbloom did a midnight Mayflower move had the best college QB prospect say he wouldn't play for them and drafted him anyways and then traded Elway to the Denver Broncos for offensive tackle Chris Hinton, quarterback Mark Herrmann, and a first round choice in the 1984 NFL draft for a HoFer and had his team called the Dolts for many years until they stumbled into a guy named Peyton who luckily for them would play for them
