Nice Scouting Department

Cowboys owner Jerry Jones held a closed-door meeting with his scouting staff today where he implored his crew to start looking for, you know, football players to play quarterback for the Cowboys. The club is now 0-for-3 in trying to convert baseball players into starting quarterbacks as the team released Drew Henson on Wednesday.

Chad Hutchinson and Quincy Carter had previously failed as Cowboys signal callers from 2001 to 2003. Both have fallen off the face of the NFL world. Luckily the Cowboys were unsuccessful in previous attempts to lure Tom Glavine, Randy Johnson and Roger Clemens to the NFL. Maybe somebody should tell Jones that not every quarterback who plays baseball will turn out to be John Elway.

It is a sad chapter to the Cowboys quarterback legacy that has included Don Meredith, Roger Staubach and Troy Aikman. But it also shows how little Jones pays attention to scouting. One of his first orders of business when he took over the Cowboys in 1989 was to gut the scouting staff. It worked when Jimmy Johnson was in charge. But has been a miserable failure since that time.

Mike Jones. Don't act like you ain't heard the name.

I've heard the name, but only because there's about a billion people named Mike Jones.

Is it weird that ESPN classic is currently showing the '99 Michigan-Penn St. game where Brady had to step into the game and try and save Henson's arse from the fire?

Apparently no one got the Mike Jones (the rapper) quote. And what happened to the Wiki facts?

You would think our resident Hip-Hop "expert," the Big O, would get that. But I guess when you are trying to be the Ali G of THN, you miss things like that.

We haven't abandoned the Wiki fact! But, you can't really force the issue, either. In other words, I'm being a lazy (donkey) this week.

Ali G couldn't carry Dave Chappelles mic.

NFL Jennifer,

Thanks for emailin me those pics, NICE!!! I've never seen a mole in that particular spot on a woman before, mmmmmmmmmmmmmm.

NFL Jennifer said...

Hey big O, I thought we had worked out our issues. First of all considering you have only seen one girl naked in your life, and that was in a magazine, that doesn't say a lot. Second of all, you would never see such pictures as your eyes are not pure enough to feast upon perfection such as myself. :)

Now, can we be friends again? Don't get all up on me just because of NFL Adam's comments.
