I feel like everyone has that one Cowboys fan acquaintance who openly admits they're just waiting for Jones to die.

In my case, it's a significant other.

She's the kind of hardcore Cowboy fan that annoys the daylights out of people, but even she admits that Jerry Jones is garbage.

I feel that way about Baker now.

I think his game is very similar to Teddy's in that he's a rhythm based passer who can pick apart a defense. Much better arm strength (and velocity too he can absolutely spin it) and mobility as well. His rookie season highlights still have some stepping throws.

Idk what's going on in Cleveland now. I feel like each coach has gone further and further away from what Baker is good at. I never thought OBJs game fit Bakers skillset and even less so with Hooper.

At the end of the day, the Browns are gonna Brown. Our primary issue as a franchise has been inconsistency, but at least we have had good seasons here and there. Even great seasons. The Browns' issue as a franchise is that they are almost universally terrible. Always. They've only appeared in one playoff game this century. They only have two winning records this century. Wow. Utterly abysmal.

Yeah, it's not like he checked a Rooney Rule box or something. There was no reason entertaining him if we weren't legitimately interested.

I mean they only have one more loss than the Panthers and Dalton is just god awful. 

But really a good comparison. The Cowboys team, for the most part, stayed in tact. Where we on the other hand, practically had a complete overhaul, from players and coaching.

Jones was always going to hire a name.  When he caught a major ration of heat from his fans for hiring yes men, he hired Parcells.  When Parcells became more associated with the Cowboy brand than Jones, Jones pushed him out promoted Garrett and had another yes man.  He shoots from his ego.  In his mind, they are Jones' Cowboys of Dallas, which is probably better that the Washington Football Team.

The only credit I'll give McCarthy in Green Bay is when Favre retired (perhaps was pushed out) and then unretired, he made it known he was sticking with Rodgers.  That may not have been decision, either.  But, they won one Super Bowl with Rodgers, and they tried to lose that one.  The only guy I wanted here less than McCarthy was McDaniels. 

The Cowboys are one of those teams that the sum of the parts is never as good as the individual pieces.  That was true under Garrett, and at least after six games, looks worse under McCarthy....Dak or no Dak.

Their defense is terribad though. Like worst I've ever seen in the NFL terrible. They were expecting to legitimately compete, not rebuild. McCarthy was hired to get that team over the hump. Right now it looks like he's driving it off the cliff and it looked like that prior to Dak getting hurt.

I was watching ESPN yesterday and they said at the current pace Dallas will be in the top 5 of most points allowed in a season ALL TIME.

They also showed Dallas's last appearance in a NFCCG was 1996 which means we started their fruitfulness (Jan. 5 1997) in the 96-97 post season.  

Dallas is looking like what I thought we would be in 2020.

little known section of the rooney rule:  teams, once a decade, must interview a big toe with a face on it.

jones single handedly killed his own dynasty...

Decades ago when he ran off Jimmy Johnson because Johnson was stealing too much of his shine in his eyes. Dude has the biggest ego in a room full of massive egos.

That’s the main reason I’m not a Cowboys fan anymore. I’ll admit that I grew up a fan way back before the Panthers existed and I didn’t live in NC. Earliest football memories where the SBs against Pittsburgh. I loved Jimmy (from UMiami as well) and his bravado even though I liked Landry. As soon as Jerry ran Jimmy off and buried the franchise and I got into FF, I dropped them. Always hated him for the team and enjoy seeing them continually suck when everyone thinks they’ll be good. Picked up the Panthers when I moved here years ago.
