Well, New York Daily News, The Ticket's a Station, Not a "Show." But Other Than That ...

Yesterday our new New York Times contributor offered eight ways the Dallas Cowboys can win the NFC East tomorrow night, each one a thoughtful, stat-driven how-to. The New York Daily News counters this morning with one of those (yawn) things-we-hate-about lists, which, as you can see, even graces the the back-page cover in this morning's edition. It's all quite slight and very silly and occasionally even complimentary ("Cowboys Stadium is much cooler than MetLife Stadium, and it cost less") and contains at least one point we can all agree on:
4. Jerry Jones is out of control, even for Jerry Jones.

He just won't stop. The megalomaniac owner/GM showed up on the sideline of the Cowboys' game against the Eagles last week, updating the coach on Romo's bruised hand and on out-of-town scores. Jones recently went on a local radio show, "The Ticket," to assure everyone that he has no intention of reducing his role.
For those who missed it earlier in the week, here's Bob and Dan listening to and talking about Norm's interview with Jerry about that "eye-to-eye" sideline visit. Said Jerry: "I did want nothing to drop between the lines communications-wise." Prediction: 38-10 Giants. At half.

"Prediction: 38-10 Giants. At half."

The Daily News article is really pretty funny. Mostly he is jealous of us!And complaining about the cheerleaders? Really? And who hasn't spent some extra 'me' time with the cheerleader calendars?

Speaking of the Ticket, did they go off the air? YahooSports is terrible.

I have to admit: I don't understand how the day after the Cowboys season ends, the Ticket's broadcasting network. I mean, hell, even I did live-n-local radio this morning ... though, sure, it was 7 a.m. till 8 on KNON.

Jerry will move the team to another city before he ever admits the he's wrong.

Its because I love the Cowboys that I wish them failure. As long as Jerry Jones continues to delude himself that he's GM material, the Cowboys will never again be successful. The rare winning season only fuels his delusion. The Cowboys can't be great again until Jerry is utterly convinced that he is the problem, and that won't happen unless the team fails again and again and again and again. I hope they lose to the Giants. I hope they go 1-15 next year. There isn't a single game that I don't pray they lose. I hope someday, somehow, Jerry finally understands that the General Manager position is a critical one, not something to be used to play out some juvenile fantasy. I reject the position by many people that Jerry is a poor GM but a great owner. He's a shitty owner. A good owner understands that a professional sports organization requires a professional General Manager. A shitty owner handicaps his company's ability to succeed for nothing more meaningful than a personal ego trip.

As someone who grew up in Cincinnati, I understand. Watching these owners is beyond frustrating.

Jerry Jones is nothing more than an extravagant Mike Brown (for those of you unfamiliar with the Bengals, that's not a compliment).

It doesn't matter as the NFC champion won't be from the NFC East anyway. I predict another Cowflops disaster but the Giants are pathetic enough to keep them in the game. The only suspense I see is who Jerry blames this year for the players quitting.
