Quote:
Buehler has missed two of his four field goal attempts this season and he has done his fair share to hurt the Cowboys chances in the first two games of the season.

His performance did not get any better in Wednesday’s practice as he attempted five field goals between 23 yards and 40. Good news for fans: he hit the first one right down the center of the uprights. Bad news: he then went on to miss the next four in a row wide right.


This is just getting to be embarrassing... something has to be done soon.

A few points for the myopic and optimistic homers:

1. I tried to tell you that Buehler is a terrible kicker but you wouldn't listen. I used to be a USC season ticket holder, so I watched him shank simple kicks for a long time. Your response: It's different now and he'll be fine because he's a pro. In other words, you apologized for him because he has a star on his helmet.

2. I also told you from the minute Folk was released that Jerry was going to hand the job to Buehler without bringing in any competition because Jerry never challenges his players. Your response: Bonoil is his kicking coach, so there wasn't any need for another kicker as competition. Plus, as you put it, Buehler "needs the reps and the experience". How's that been working out?

3. Jerry is not going to bring in a different kicker because he never admits that he makes mistakes. He'd rather allow this nonsense to continue rather than bring in a veteran. Or, by the time he decides that a veteran should be signed, all of the talented free agent kickers will be gone. It's his history. Look it up for yourselves.

Face it; Jerry is running the team into the ground in multiple areas, and kicker just happens to be one of them. This is what happens when someone who knows absolutely nothing about football plays GM, makes personnel decisions, and has more control of the players than the coaching staff.

If I've said it once, I've said it 1000 times: This team will not get better until Jerry either steps down as GM and hires a new one, sells the team, or dies. Until then, we will continue to squander in mediocrity because the attitude of the team is exactly like that of its owner: no discipline, no leadership, no sense of urgency, and no concept of caring about anything other than himself. Jerry doesn't care about winning championships - he cares about marketing his team and selling tickets to any event he can bring into the building - and his team has responded accordingly.

We could've done what I suggested: place him on IR last year because we knew that he wasn't fully recovered from the hip injury and then reevaluate him in 2010.

And how was my suggestion received? With vitriol.

I nominate Plan9 for GM. He seems to have a vast knowledge of how to run a football franchise. Wink

I would have preferred that option as well. It would have been a smart decision, given his past history of being a very accurate kicker. However, I suppose we shouldn't expect "smart" decisions from Jerruh.

EXACTLY! I still have absolutely no clue why we didn't just put him on IR instead of releasing him.

We certainly can't do any worse with me as GM than with Jerry. I'd actually listen to my scouting department, draft offensive linemen, and give my coaching staff enough autonomy to where they wouldn't be/appear emasculated every step of the way. Of course, I also would've hired a head coach with more of a backbone after discovering how weak Wade is as a coach.

Then again, I'd also put a clause in my contract that prevents Jerry from constantly standing in the spotlight and drawing attention to himself because it detracts from what the organization needs to do to win. Needless to say, I could never be the GM in Dallas because Jerry is too much of an egomaniac to ever sit back, be a responsible owner, and run the organization in a way that is conducive to winning championships. He would rather have a circus than a championship because he makes more money on the publicity than he does with his players on the football field.

Jerry may be (and certainly is) a marketing genius, but he's a football dimwit. He cares about money, not championships.

No, not from your corner, Dirk. But it came from many people in this forum.

Their is no excuse not to bring in a vet kicker at this point. David is struggling and should be on a short leash when the yr started. He is missing in practice now, it's time to do what's right. If the Wade and JJ let him kick in a crucial point in this weeks game and he misses, then I know JJ and Wade have doom this teams hopes.

JJ get a freakin vet kicker ASAP !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
