07:24 AM ET 01.14 | On the surface, Bengals owner Mike Brown and Jerry Jones couldn't be much less alike. Brown inherited his team from his famous father, has zero Super Bowls, is camera shy and would rather die than spend an additional dollar on his team or his players. Yet ... The Cowboys have -- oh, gawd -- become Bengals South, because Mike Brown and Jerry Jones are not that much different. Because Jerry is now a man of great continuity. The latest "media reports" say that offensive coordinator Bill Callahan will remain as the primary play-caller for the Cowboys. ... The only major question remaining is if the Cowboys will retain Monte Kiffin as their defensive coordinator one year after his unit became a synonym for horror. Do not be surprised if Kiff comes back, because these Cowboys are now all about keeping the band together.

You read my mind dude. EXACTLY! They wish they were the Bengals.

Monte Kiffin has got to go. If his buddy Rod Marinelli doesn't like it he can go too. If Jerry has a problem with that he can go to. The fans need to band together and chase that hillbilly back to Arkansas.

I'm more worried that they'll become the Browns.

They are getting pretty damn close to that tipping point.

Maybe Jerry should open up a Night Club in The Stadium, that should keep him and his sons busy year round, use the Million Dollar Saloon effect!!!!!

The stadium is already being used year round. That's part of the problem. Jerry knows he has a cash cow and no matter how the team sucks he will still stuff his pockets with $$'s.

Quite a few nice QB's coming out in the draft... If Jerrah had any sense, he'd pull the trigger.

AS I've said, wouldn't surprise me to see him trade with the Rams at 2 and pick Manziel. He knows a marketing opportunity when he sees it, but on field talent evaluation is another issue with JJ.

The Cowboys are going to need a crystal ball to figure out what the Romo situation will be in September. If I were the GM, I'd be looking at drafting a QB, but if I were JJ, I probably wouldn't.

You don't need crystal balls to know that 2 back operations in a year is not a good thing.

I don't understand the correlation between theses two teams at all.

I think that's how it will always be as long as Jerrah runs the show.

I'd say that about sums it up.

Monte is a much better coordinator when he actually has the right guys to run his system.

There is a big difference in the two organizations - the Bengals look like they are going to lose both of their coordinators, and JJ can't give Monte or any other coach away to another team.
