2014 NFL Week 9 Thursday Night Football
JERRY JONES: AN EGO FOR THE AGES…
I began distilling the idea of defending Jerry Jones after all the hoopla in the wake of his appearance on the Cowboys’ sideline.
In a realist, fair analysis, Jones has made clear he will continue to be the NFL’s most “involved” owner—even if that involvement has made the Dallas the definition of a mediocre franchise for the better part of 20 years.
Why all the fuss? He does own the Dallas Cowboys. Any player, past or present, will tell you, Jones treats his players like kings.
Everything is first class…
Of course, that may be part of the Cowboys problem.
Jones being on the sideline is as shocking as President Obama being in the Oval Office.
Of course, that may be a bigger part of the Cowboys problem.
Jones’ ego is stunningly inflated, Good Year blimps marvel at the man’s capacity for hot air.
The following quote from his weekly radio show tells us all we need to know about just how highly Jones thinks of himself:
“No. 1, I wanted to go down there and do what I could, look our guys in the eye, look at them, inspire them to overcome Romo not being out there and overcome what I thought was a critical time…”
The irony—and hilarity—is Jerrah has no idea how selfish, ego-centric and classless that would sound even if Dallas had ended up winning the game, against a division rival, battered by injuries, that nearly every pundit expected them to win.
Maalala inspires me. Soldiers forced to serve endless tours in Afghanistan inspire me…Jerry Jones? He inspires laughter.
The first thing I wonder about when I see any photo of Jones is…
“How much has that guy been drinking…”
NEW ORLEANS SAINTS @ CAROLINA PANTHERS + 3 49.5 [O]
I had a horrible Week 8.
Not gonna over think this one. Cam Newton lost too many weapons. The Carolina defense lost key players to injuries—and don’t short change the value of suspended wife-beater, Greg Hardy.
They are simply not the same team they were last year.
Neither are the Holy Men, but they have Jimmy Graham, Drew Brees, Mark Ingram and Sean Payton calling their plays. Rob Ryan’s defense held Green Bay to 23 points even though Aaron Rodgers threw for four big ones.
The key to this on is the poor Carolina rush defense against an excellent New Orleans running game. The offensive balance the Saints enjoy will be too much for Cam Newton to overcome.
The Saints defense stinks too. That’s why, were betting the over and the Saints.
Saints 37 Panthers 24
