For most of his tenure with the Dallas Cowboys, Owner/General Manager Jerry Jones has been criticized on how he runs the franchise. A lot of the criticism centers on the financial status of the team, as Jones over-pays unworthy veteran players and flirts with the cap every year. The result is a mediocre team that is always up against the salary cap.

Yet, lately there seems to be a different philosophy with the Jones family and how they handle the business of the team. Listening to members of the media and thinking about the moves they have made, I think there might be something going on at Valley Ranch. It is no secret; these moves have been publicly made and talked about. From what I can see, the Cowboys are “retooling” their roster to help extend the championship window for the Romo era.  Here is the plan that could bring the Cowboys back into contention and be financially sound. Credit goes out to Gavin Dawson of the G-Bag Nation show heard on 105.3 The Fan. He hypothesized a plan the Cowboys front-office must be using. It inspired me to write out this battle plan the Cowboys might use. Listen to his show for more Cowboys content, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on 105.3 the Fan in Dallas.

    Orton very likely has trade value if he doesn’t retire. Could be they signed Weeden to open up the possibility of dealing Orton for draft picks… Or it could be the Cowboys aren’t too enthusiastic about Romo’s recovery, despite the rosy public face on it, and they’re worried they may need a backup for when Orton is the starter…

    None of this means jack when your QB consistently chokes in big moments. Basically you can’t make chicken salad out of chickenshit. Draft a QB.
