    As long as Jerry and the Idiot Son are running the show and Garrett's the HC, draft picks are nothing more than rearranging the deck chairs on the Titanic.

    I'd buy your logic, but its not the logic that the other teams in the NFL use. They call a spade a spade, and at least give their teams fans a hope that change is coming. Even the sad sack of shit Washington owner Snyder has put Gruden on notice that this year has to produce results.

    Always thought it would be a slow, painful process for him to learn that he's not that smart and he will make mistakes that need to be corrected.
    Its pretty obvious to the smart football fans that the Jones family caught lightning in a bottle with Johnson and the slew of Herschel draft picks to win a few SB's. Since then and after Jerry said he would win things doing it "his way" its been a long draught of playoff wins and SB appearances.

    Clearly, a good football fan can see that BOTH Jones overplay the talent on both sides of the ball. Many of the players they pump up to the media are probably 2nd stringers on most contending teams...hence the fact that Dallas never makes it into the money rounds.

    Todays NFL doesn't rely on 1-2 star players anymore....it relies on really good players sprinkled thruout the roster, most of which come via the draft and out of FA. Dallas sucks at both, although the draft has gotten better, they refuse to upgrade positions that would make a difference in getting to the next level because of the overvaluation of current roster talent.

    Its a huge problem.

    Well there is 32 teams in the league so all things being equal he should have won ~1 SB in the ~30 years since he bought the team. He's won 3. So, as much as we would love to pretend he's a moron and a POS and all the rest, he's beat the averages. Would you trade him for Snyder?

    But whatever. Arguing we needing to get rid of the Joneses is just a waste of air not worth discussing.

    So why are we the team that we are since Jimmy left if Jerry was so involved? You would think that he could stumble on some kind of success in the past 20 years if he was a sound football mind.

    If you season ticket holders would stop going to the games then maybe we could see some kind of substantial change. I do agree that that aint happening so we are left with being the New Cleveland Browns.

    At least Cleveland could get excited about a top 5 draft pick every year. We're stuck in 8-8 hell most of the time. Not good enough to advance into and through the playoffs and not bad enough to infuse real blue chip talent with high draft picks.

    So many wasted top draft picks but I'm with you.

    Anyone with half a brain knows Johnson picked the players that won those 3 SBs.

    If Jones was so adept at assembling a good roster heíd at least been to the playoffs and even contending for division titles with some consistency over the last 25 years. Iíd even be happy with a CHANCE at the playoffs on a regular basis. But instead the team is mired in mediocrity.

    Definitely would not have Snyder, but he finally did get a couple smart FO guys and they picked some pretty damn good players in the last few drafts.

    But like you said as long as there is a Jerry and Stephen Jones with their hand in the pot itís not going to get any better.

    I'm certainly not trying to defend Jones and Garrett, but if this is strictly a white man keeping his job after such a long stretch of bad coaching, why does Marvin Lewis still have his job?
