  • hopefully he kept the T.O. napkin

    • Never thought I'd say it, but I really think Jerry is going to draw a line in the sand on Friday. He's babied him a long time and said all the right things to the media. But now I have a feeling he's going to force him to take the pay cut or be traded.

      • ^^ I know that looks like a "Yeah, well no shit" comment but I just don't see this dragging on much longer. IDK maybe Jerry's gunning for an extra draft pick or two.

        • Except for now, Stephen is the bad cop. Stephen has laid the expectation for his exit.

            Or is it Dez? Been hearing about him working with a route guru, but heard today that he hasn't even started yet. WTF is he waiting for?

              We've been hearing about this meeting for weeks now. They are trying so hard to drag that shit out.

                Without Jerry keeping the JoeFans that hang on his every word in suspense...what else is there?

                Playoff wins? Dynamic coach? Big splashy FA's? Deep playoff runs?

                Without Jerrys sunshine pumping bullshit, the Cowboys are simply a version of the Skins with a really nice stadium.

                • People just want to get on with getting better. This is cheap drama.

                  • Cutting Dez now would be idiotic, we're seemingly done with free agency and it'd be telegraphing that we're taking a WR within the first 3 rounds. So what in the absolute fuck is the point of cutting him now and not in 3 weeks after the draft?

                    • Pay cut, beotch!

                        That is exactly what goes on in here.

                        • All the radio stations I've heard talk about it today are talking as if it's a done deal he is gone. Barring some sort of Jerry emotional pang. If so, sucks it couldn't have been worked out. Another one whose uniform I have gone damnit.

                            The only thing that gives me pause is the emotional showdown with Jones.

                            We will see where Bryant is coming from. Honestly, Jerry has shown him infinite patience.

                            • I have no problem with the strategy of asking him to take a pay cut and then releasing him if he doesn't.

                              What I do have a problem with is making it clear as fucking day to the rest of the league that we're going WR in the first 2-3 rounds. I also would prefer that they let the draft fall how it's going to fall, and if the value is at WR at 19 or 50 or what have you, then go to Bryant asking for a pay cut, if the draft doesn't fall that way you aren't boxing yourself into a corner having to take a WR.

                                Well, it is too late if he is a cut. You know damn good and well WR goes right to the top and they might even force it.

                                This is just the wrong year to have to do that.

                                I can't believe I am defending keeping him, but sometimes discretion is the better part of valor.
