Does anyone else find it amusing that Jerry Jones routinely has trouble stringing two coherent sentences together? If the man's strategic thinking is as confused as his English, is it any wonder the Cowboys are where they are after 20 years of his "leadership"? Here's a partial transcript of his interview on 105.3 The Fan on Tuesday. I dare you to get it all in one reading: So much expectations. Everything on the line. What went wrong against the Giants? "First of all and this can be a familiar story too: We get behind 21 points. We have to move away from a more balanced attack that we would have preferred with running a little more. We obviously didn’t get many yards in the game and most of it through the air, but we had to get off our mark a little bit there because of the early mistakes that we made. That again will happen and when it does you are behind the 8-ball immediately and that was a shame because we all saw what those plays were. In general I thought that was the wrong way to start the game and ultimately kept us from being as successful as we had all dreamed would be." Do you believe the Giants were truly the better team? "Well I must say what it is what it is. They won the two games. One here and one there. We think when you look at match ups across the board – I was looking at some things this morning. Of course it is so disappointing to have… [Tony] Romo was the actual 4th rated passer in the entire NFL and to not be in that playoff? That’s terribly disappointing. I wouldn’t have thought that would happen. Defensively we had some things we would like to do over again, but still we were 16th in the NFL. You look at the teams – we look at that are going to be in these playoffs. You see New Orleans is the number one offense. New England is second. Green Bay. Then you have Philadelphia. Detroit. San Francisco. Green Bay is 32nd on defense. New England is 31st on defense. The Giants are 27th. We show up well enough to be in this playoff. That is frustrating." Was this season a failure? "I think it’s disappointing. That is the bigger word for me. Our goals were always first to get into the playoffs. Secondly, to go far into the playoffs and so in short I would have thought if we could have ended up improved on defense, which we were and we would end up offensively…I think we were 10th or 11th offensively. We had the 4th rated quarterback in the NFL. We were healthy. I thought our offense line was really improved. We were able to come in there with some newer players at some long term positioning with our offensive line as a unit. We were able to get in there. We were down on penalties. We were down on mental mistakes. You put that all together I thought we should have been in better shape than we were. More often then not when you are in the kind of shape we were in statistically you are doing better in the playoffs." Do you expect Rob Ryan to be back? "I do. Yes." Would you consider bringing Bill Polian into the front office? "The thing you gotta realize is that when you have an owner that is full-time as the owner then you create a situation where you got as much turnover at GM at the coaching level. I think that just deters from the mix. I call on the very same kinds of influence on the people and information that someone like Bill Polian…I have know him for years and served on the competition committee with him for 10 years. The answer is: I have a lot of respect for him. [Host: Look Jerry you've answered this question a million times] I’ll answer it again for you: The way we are structured and the way it is. Our fans need to understand that I have the ability to go get anybody and any bit of information that there is. Sports or football. I do and I’ll go get it. We get it from a lot of sources. We get it from a lot of sources evaluating football players. We get it from evaluating coaches. There won’t be an offensive scheme. There won’t be a defensive scheme in the National Football League that we don’t totally evaluate during the off-season and make decisions relative to what other people are doing and relative to what we are doing."

Jerry Jones says DE Marcus Spears is too "valuable" to trade..."period". "We're just not interested, period," Jones said when asked about speculation by the Miami Herald that the Cowboys could trade Spears to the Dolphins. "His play is one of the strengths of that group. We're willing to take this thing into the season the way it is. We just have no interest." The Cowboys allowed the fewest points in the NFC last season, and Jones suggested that he believes the run-stuffing Spears was a big part of that. "Spears, I think, is too valuable for us for what we've got a chance to do," Jones said. mysanantonio.com

Free agents are expected to be visiting Valley Ranch soon - so it seems. It's time to interpret Jerry Jones. "We will be active, but I'm anticipating some value and opportunity that is not necessarily there right now - can be there but if the process hasn't let us get there," Jones said. "Now, if that doesn't show, that'll limit what I do." ESPN's interpretation: "But Jones told reporters from Cowboys Stadium on Tuesday that some morning meetings might have solidified some things. The Cowboys are going to start bringing in free agents for visits, but when remains unclear. " The DMN's interpretation: "Jones said he has a sense of what the club will be able to do in free agency and said the team is ready to start scheduling visits." DC.com

At the Combine yesterday, Jerry Jones was asked for his thoughts on Flozell Adams. "If we could have a season like that out of him this year it would be great," Jones said. "I was very pleased with his season. Certainly that’s the question mark. That’s when you have decision to make right there – can you get another year like that out of him?" ESPN

Another player that has been talked about is former Jags WR Matt Jones. He’s another troubled player that faced drug charges last season, and even though he was solid with the Jags in 08, turning in his best season, the team let him go. Jones says that currently "the Cowboys have no interest in former Arkansas receiver Matt Jones."

Speaking at Tuesday's organized team activities session, Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said of the club's veteran outside linebacker: "It's likely Greg will play somewhere else next year." [snip] Jones indicated that he's given Ellis and his agent permission to speak to other teams, but a trade is unlikely given the fact that Ellis is on the books for $4.15 million in 2009. Jones said he met with Ellis this morning and the two sides decided to "leave it like it is," which means the Cowboys aren't in a rush to release him.
