Complete the reset. Don’t stop. This addition by subtraction arrangement is working.

Keep it going, Dallas Cowboys.

So, with that in mind, Jerry Jones should subtract himself from the Cowboys’ 2014 Draft war room.

Bye, bye, Jerry.

Where You End, Others Begin

He can only do it for so long. It’s time. The beginning of the end has started.

Word is that during the signing of defensive tackle Henry Melton, Jerry Jones wasn’t involved or “around” as he usually is during potential subtraction and additions involving the team.

The deal with Henry Melton turned out to be just that for the Cowboys: A deal. Melton’s contract stipulations revolve around “performance” incentives — in other words, prove you are the same (or better) player before your injury and you’ll get paid.

Sign here.

And no, we don’t have to wait for Mr. Jerry Jones to arrive. He won’t. Sign there and here and meet us in the backyard for some football.

Simple. Wonderful, isn’t it?

The Cowboys are learning. They’re learning that it’s the simple and smart punches that build a franchise; that it doesn’t take splash additions to recycle a team to success.

    I don’t understand what the argument is for why Jerry should stay away? What does a free agent contract have to do with it? In Jerry’s recent draft history, he’s added, among others, Tryon Smith, Travis Fredrick, Dez Bryant, Terrence Williams, Sean Lee, DeMarco Murray, etc, etc… His past 4 drafts or so might be the best job that he’s done since Jimmy left.

      Yes one could say the last four years have been pretty good but they could have been so much better without Claiborne (choose DeCastro with one pick instead of two) and Escobar (take Warford instead of a project tight end) Carter and Lee (who can’t stay healthy) etc, etc. We need starters with our first 2 or 3 picks and fans are justifiably nervous Jerry will muck it up somehow with projects or injured players.

        Well yeah, if your goal is to hit on 100% of your draft picks, then you’re never going to be satisfied. But they’ve drafted 9 starters since 2010. They’ve also had some bad picks, but so has everyone.

        • Old Frog

          My goal is not to hit 100%, only 100% on the first 2-3 picks. Go with proven commodities that don’t have a history of injury and aren’t depth for some other position. Should be easy enough.

        You could look at any team and say the same thing. You could pick any team almost any round and I can show you a better player they could have picked. It’s easy for us to play the Monday morning GM.

    Even if you do not like him, he is the GM and should be involved in the draft.
