Cowboys Falling Apart?


quote:

Several reports coming out of the Dallas camp indicate that after the Cowboys' win over Philadelphia last Sunday, team owner Jerry Jones and nose tackle Jay Ratliff got into a verbal confrontation so severe that team personnel had to separate the two. Jones, who has a habit of talking to players in the locker room after games to offer encouragement or prodding, apparently walked up to the oft-injured Ratliff and said just three words: "We need you."
Ratliff then got to his feet and an argument ensued. Credit Jones; the 70-year-old didn't back down from the 6-foot-4, 300-pound lineman (though the fact that Jones signs Ratliff's checks might have had something to do with it). Team officials had to separate what one individual called a "volcanic" confrontation.

Being that it was Ratliff's replacement who was arrested, they don't have much of a choice.


BTW- just saw on the ticker the Cowboys are thinking of shuting down Dez Bryant for the season

Meh, I don't know. I'm actually not sure how I feel about it, but Ratliff plays above his size and is usually pretty tough. I'd like to think that if he could go, he would. I'm sure when you have an injury like this it's frustrating enough, then you have the owner somewhat questioning your nuts...I could see how he'd blow up. But yeah, it's also the owner, you have to have way more sense than that. Even if it is Jerrah.

and we are way beyond "falling apart." We are pretty much a bunch of shattered bones, being held in by the skin.

Literally, most of our team is either injured, dead or in jail. And with Pittsburgh coming up, I can only assume we'll add a few more names to the IR about this time next week.
