Jerry Jones said combination of players, coaching, personnel moves hurt Cowboys down the stretch

Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said he can’t blame only the players for the way the season ended. He said it was a combination of problems, including the players, coaches and personnel decisions that accounted for the 1-4 finish that left the Cowboys out of the playoffs.

“We may have gotten a little overzealous with some young players in the middle of our offensive line,” Jones said. “We’re going to have to make sure we not only have given them a chance to grow and have progress, but we also have in there the kind of protection we want in the middle for Tony.”

Jones said the Cowboys’ young guards and centers – Phil Costa, Bill Nagy, Kevin Kowalski – earned their chance to play. But he said his prime consideration is protecting Romo.

“We’ve got to look at the whole picture and make sure we don’t compromise things because, again, I’m more into not squandering the prime years of Romo,” Jones said. “And so we want to make sure we’ve given him every opportunity, and protection’s one of those opportunities. and we’ll work hard on that in our offseason.”

I agree with your idea.You look like very talented.It is very happy to meet you. Thank you!

One moment please, on the one hand you desire not to squander Romo's time, on the other, you installed a young inexperienced line. Let me compute that....nope, it says that will not compute. I received a "general default manager error". Now I wonder what could be the cause of this error...hmmm.

Sure, we all would love to see Jerry fire himself from the GM position but it ain't gonna happen so let's move on.

You know what, I'm completely tired of Jerry and his yearly bs about we should have done this or that. It's been 15 years fool. If you stop and think about it, we've heard this lame story from JJ seems like forever. I think the best thing we can do is show up with paper bags come opening day and show off our new outfits.

Oh for goodness sakes Jerry, JUST SHUT UP!!!

So what does this mean? SIgn more overrated players like Kyle Kosier? It's not about "Romo's Prime Years" Jerry, it's about the future as a hole.

Hey Jerry, stop making the same erros like have two seperate secondary coaches, one for the corners and one for the safety's. TOO MANY VOICES..TOO MUCH CONFUSION. See now that would be a good critical article but people like Mr. Hill rather challenge Jason because he has his OWN agenda.

Well, Jerry you are the reason. Stand up and take responsibility for your mistakes.
