I have defended Jerry Jones with all of my heart for the past 20 years. I have trotted out lines such as "best owner in the league" or "god he loves the team so much" or "well he made Parcells pick Ware over Spears/Merriman" Many different variations of "see, he's not an idiot".
However, this Andre Gurode situation has finally put me over the edge. Ol JJ has finally broke me and crushed my support of him and the team that I love.
Jerry comes out last week saying how great Phil Costa(pfhh yeah sure) is and how he should start. He is not very good to begin with and then the guy gets hurts so what now? There was a reason he was not drafted. I had a feeling that this was going to lead to something bad and now we see it with Gurode being benched tonight as "a business decision".
Granted, Gurode is a flawed player and is coming off an injury and from what I have heard has not sounded good in camp. I do not like the fact he waited til July to have knee surgery although I don't have all the facts so can;t fully judge. I would have to say at this point though that he is better than Phil Costa or Kevin Kowalski.
But what a great way to leverage his maximum value in a trade ol trader JJ
If you want to trade him or make him take a pay cut then fine but why do you have to broadcast this to the media? What exactly does that accomplish?
Ever heard of leverage? What an amateur,
Oh, and what a nice defense you have assembled JJ. Thanks for wasting the talent of DeMarcus Ware by giving him no support.
Thanks for crushing my spirit as a fan
