The scenario in Dallas has gotten so dangerous that proprietor Jerry Jones is on the radio making an attempt to persuade of us that 1+1=3. Throughout certainly one of his frequent appearances on 105.3 The Fan in Dallas, Jones was requested about his optimism heading into the upcoming season. Apparently, Jones has misplaced all hope in logical reasoning.
“Effectively, let me simply tackle the primary means you acknowledged the query with none challenge on it. I’ve to imagine 1 and 1 is 3. I can’t function the place 1 and 1 is 2. Everyone knows it’s, bodily, however the 3 is the place you must go. Now you must have optimism to function out in that world, and commit, and do issues whenever you’ve acquired to rely on 1 and 1 being 3. I’m not attempting to play video games, however that’s the place the most important payoffs are, is on the market. It’s there for everyone to seize if 1 and 1 is 2. So, right here you go.”
Optimism is splendid, however it may be confused with delusion generally. Jerry must be optimistic. Jones principally admitted just lately that his job is to maintain the Cowboys related. He needs to maintain the world speaking about his crew, which doesn’t essentially imply profitable on a regular basis.
“If anyone is pondering now we have extra mentioned about us, extra visibility… that’s precisely what I’m attempting to do,” Jones mentioned. “I need to maintain them speaking concerning the Cowboys. If we acquired them speaking about us, we’re doing our job.”
This isn’t some revelation by Jerry. Most of the world has known it’s not about winning in Dallas for years. They haven’t come close to even appearing in a Super Bowl since the mid-1990s. Jones has built an extraordinary brand and made the Cowboys the most valuable franchise in American professional sports.
Although, he constantly tells us how he’d do anything it takes to win another championship. We haven’t seen things play out that way in reality. Now Jones is peddling his gibberish in mathematical equations that would have a first grade teacher throw up.
Jerry’s level of optimism has likely left most of you flummoxed. Claims of doing whatever it takes resulted in more key players leaving than staying during the offseason. Randy Gregory opted for Denver over Dallas. Jones traded Amari Cooper to Cleveland and let Cedric Wilson Jr. flee to Miami. Those players would still be representing The Star if Jones did whatever it took.
Again, the “optimism” can be admired, but most Cowboys fans are tired of falling for the same ‘ol Okie doke every year. Lots of big talk and promises that yield minimal results. Jones is the ultimate salesman that will say what needs to be said based on the audience receiving the message. This 1+1=3 optimistic crap isn’t adding up.
Jones’ logic with player personnel is flat-out wrong sometimes. If anybody needs to be moved on from, it’s Ezekiel Elliott. He’s likely to have a couple outstanding games early in the season but just wait. He’ll fall off eventually. In 17 games last season, Zeke rushed 1,002 yards. Elliott’s done, and Jones is the last one to realize it. He’s splitting carries with Tony Pollard for a reason.
Oh, boy. This is going to be a long and painful season for Cowboys nation.
