01:05 AM ET 11.26 | So the Dallas Cowboys dropped another game on Thanksgiving Day. It was the first game quarterback Tony Romo has ever lost on Thanksgiving Day. Since this current Dallas team hasn't been able to win back-to-back regularly, we all knew that game was coming. But that is in the past. As the season has continued on, it becomes more apparent that owner and general manager Jerry Jones' makeshift team isn't doing it for the Dallas Cowboys. Jerry Jones loves the media; that is nothing every Dallas fan doesn't know. Jerry Jones loves the Cowboys, yes few fan still believe that. Jerry is trying to build a Super Bowl winning team but he's not. He's buying playmakers and divas and forgetting about the basics of football: your offensive line and your trenches. The offensive line and the defensive trenches are the two places that Dallas has been decimated by injuries throughout this season and furthermore, most of last season. So what's the problem in Dallas? Well it's easy to point to the owner and general manager because ultimately it is his fault.

The Cowboys' shopping list in the next draft/free agent market:

- OLs
- DLs
- LBs
- A new coach and a new QB wouldn't hurt either.

Unfortunately, JJ thinks of every shopping list as a Christmas list so he'll go after what he doesn't need: WRs, RBs and DBs.

Pffft... Jerry's got a great team down there.

Thanks for the early x-mas present Jerry. Can't tell you how sweet it is beating up the Cowboys on national television in their own coliseum on Thanksgiving Day. Looking forward to doing it again in a few weeks.

Thanks again Skeletor

It's not to often that you can't argue with a single word at the top of a thread, is it?

Jerra will say he understands what the Boys need but obviously he doesn't. Can't see his ego letting go enough to make it a real team. He's got to fire himself.

Jerry Jones! Jerry Jones!.......Now even you Texans don't deserved this.

The very many titles of one: Owner, Exec.V.P., GM, Closet HC, Egomaniac, Master Scouter, Player Developer, Player Consultant, Cheif Dirtbag of Greater Metropolitan Dallas Area........can anyone think of anything else?

Nope - it sure isn't.




Can't argue with a single syllable.

I just don't see what all the fuss is about. As a Giants fan, I think Jerry is doing a fine job down in the Big D. Only thing I would do differently is trade Romo to the Jets for Tebow. He is obviously the missing piece to the Cowboys' championship.

Ever since The Boys showed Doug Free the money....he's been MIA.

"He's buying playmakers and divas and forgetting about the basics of football: your offensive line and your trenches...The offensive line and the defensive trenches are the two places that Dallas has been decimated by injuries throughout this season and furthermore, most of last season. "

So which is it? Did he fail to get good players, or did he get some but they have been injured?

I don't follow Dallas closely enough to know if the lines would be any good if they were healthy, but if they have been "decimated" by injury it is no surprise the team is struggling.

BOTTOM LINE.....Jerry Jones is broke. Think about it. He has not sent any money to bring in any big names players since Jerry World was built. He has been slicing salaries like none other and signing medioacre at best players. He has costly traded out of the first round to prevent from having to pay large salaries to rookies.
