I've seen a lot of bad football, but the Dallas Cowboys really stink up the joint.

The Dallas Cowboys offense plays a brand of football that should be banned from the league. I mean, they are really terrible. I'm watching the Eagles-Cowboys game tonight, and the Cowboys offense has been absolutely horrid. Note that I am not an Eagles fan, just a football fan. If I am Bill Parcells, I'm not sure I take this head coaching job...if it is offered to me.

Is Quincy Carter still around? Seems like they were more competitive when he was the QB.

Paul, I'm not sure why the Cowboys are going with Hutchinson. I also don't know why Emmitt is spending so much time on the bench.

Which is why Jones is trying to woo Bill Parcells back to coaching the Cowboys.

I cannot imagine why Parcells would take the Cowboy job with Jerry Jones still acting as GM. Parcells seemed like he was campaigning for the job in an interview on ESPN last night, when he said that he did not need to have complete control. Of course, he also said that would be the case only if there was someone competent making personnel decisions. Jones certainly does not fit that criteria.

Parcells could have any NFL job opening he wants, so why put up with Jerry Jones?

Dallas is one of the worst teams in the league, but they do have competition in the Bungals (of course), the Lions, the Panthers and the Cardinals. I'll give Houston a break, since this is their first year in the league. The 'Boys offense looks terrible, but the defense is quite good.

That's exactly it. I have seen worse Cowboy teams than this one. Anyone remember Jimmy's first year as coach? That's right, 1-15.

Despite opinions to the contrary, I think Jerry Jones is a good owner, despite all the controversy he generates. Even Jimmy Johnson admits that Jones did not get involved in coaching type decisions while Jimmy was coach.

The Cowboys need to start rebuilding their offense. They can start by getting a quarterback!

For ordinary men, it's a burning, fiery furnace.

At least you Cowboy fans have 3 recent Super Bowl Victories to look back upon. As a disgruntled lions fan I am left longing for the days of Wayne Fontes..

The main issue with the Cowboys this year has been their O-Line. I sincerely doubt any quarterback worth his salt would be able to do much given their line.

I like Hutch as a QB. I think he'll be fine once they get a line together. They should be a high draft pick and a new Coach so perhaps they sign a Left/Right Tackle out of free agency or Draft pick and that should help out alot. An attitude change via a coach will help as well. With the way this league is you never know how good they might be next year.

Perhaps its a mutual respect thing. Jones is a known owner who wants to win and is willing to spend the $$ given he has the room(which he does). Someone on the Level of Parcells could tone down Jones a bit although there is a big chance of an Ego clash.

And they almost beat the Niners a few weeks ago. Posted Image The Bengals beat the Saints today when the Saints needed a win to stay alive in the playoff hunt. Parity at it's best.

I easily see Parcells clashing with Jerry Jones the way Jimmy Johnson did. Parcells needs control, regardless of what he said in the interview with Chris Mortensen on ESPN yesterday. Jerry Jones will not give him that control. As was said last night on ESPN, remember the quote that Parcells made when he was coach of the Patriots. If he is took do the cooking, he wants to shop for the groceries. I don't see Jerry Jones letting go of the reigns, even for a proven head coach like Parcells.

Everyone thinks Jerry is a good owner. He's a smart businessman and is willing to put the investment into winning. The trouble is he is a poor GM who steadfastly refuses to relinquish that responsibility.

As a Cowboy fan, we can only hope that they "clash" the same way Jones and Johnson did....perhaps resulting in another 3 Super Bowl Rings!

I wonder if Parcels would be offered a piece of the team. By the end of his coaching career, he was literally suffering poor health because of it. He also has nothing left to prove. There needs to be something special to entice him back into the arena.

He may be a good owner, but he's a lousy GM.

The difference with Jimmy Johnson is that he was calling the personnel shots, despite what Jones' huge ego would let you believe. If Jones will not turn over the GM position to Parcells, the old coach will not be successful.

While the Matt and Marty show is pretty bad, this Lions fan does not miss Wayne at all. That was just another form of mediocrity.

For now, sports fans in Dallas have to concentrate on round ball and hockey.

For the Cowboys, I can’t imagine that Jones will be able to hire a ‘control freak’ coach. And it seems as all of the great coaches fit into the control freak category.
