Are The Dallas Cowboys Uncomfortable Yet?

On January 2, 2013 Dallas Cowboys owner, Jerry Jones, went on The Jerry Jones Show on 105.3 “The Fan” in Dallas and let it be known that a lot of people at Valley Ranch needed to feel uncomfortable. For a few days the fans of the team and the media who report on the team mocked the idea that anyone at Valley Ranch would ever feel uncomfortable. If you remember, earlier in the season former Cowboys Head Coach, Jimmy Johnson, had diagnosed the atmosphere at Valley Ranch as more like a Country Club.

Who feels uncomfortable at a Country Club? That’s a social atmosphere of privilege. It is easy to understand why anyone would think the Cowboys team is a Country Club. They have the most posh stadium in the History of the NFL and they are called America’s Team. Glitz and glamor surround the Cowboys. Even the owner is fawned on like he’s a rock star.

The hosts of the Show wanted to dig into how Jerry felt about a lot of aspects of the team, and you could tell as you listened that the Cowboys owner was pissed off. They asked about whether Jason Garrett was going to call Offensive plays in 2013, and he told them he wasn’t ready to have that meeting yet. The hosts wanted to explain why they had to ask the question and they were cut off by a very abnormally curt Jerry Jones.

He let it be known that at 8-8 change was necessary. Still wanting to push the questions the hosts asked if Rob Ryan’s job was safe. At that point Jerry asked if they thought he was nuts. Many people have determined over the years that Jerry is nuts. I’m not here to tell you whether I think he is or isn’t. There is no doubt in my mind the man was pissed off. I don’t think I’ve ever heard Jerry so pissed off.

    for the man to fire Rob Ryan, and hire some 72yr old defense guy from USC tells me he has no interest in improving this team! to say he wouldn’t hire Lovie smith because he might out shine Garrett tells me he has lost his mind. the definition of insanity is to do the same thing over and over and expect different results!!!!!

    Jason Garrett is not moving forward, and is not a play caller,Tony Romo is not and will never be a big game QB, he’s a paper QB HAS ALL THE STATS AND ALL THE BIG GAME CHOKES I would rather have Roger or Troy over Romo in any big game stats be dam!!

    “Good coaches know how to use good players, and good players know how to play in a system”- Thats all that I believe most fans are asking for. Rob Ryan couldnt do it Jason Garrett doesnt do it, got a DC(not a guy I was at all interested in or happy about but hey…) now we need to turn the play calling over to someone who knows how to use Romo to his strengths.

    Jerry has made many questionable decisions, but firing Ryan is not one of them. Defensive players appeared loathe to tackle. On offensive, Jerry has contributed mightily in hindering Romo’s being considered for the Hall of Fame’ the reason is that while Jerry likes flashy offensive players, his offensive line is the worst in the NFL. Team strength is always on the O line offensively and the same on Defense.

    Wow….so he really said that….wow. The nerve, audacity, intelligence…..or rather, should I say the insanity of Jerry always on display here. We assume quite easily many of times, but to confirm by and through the horses mouth itself or himself, is outrageously self revealing.
    Jerry, Jerry….o’ where are thou? lol.
