    Reading between the lines…

    Rather you follow the online or Ft. Worth Star online, the recent quote given in opening up remains the same:  “My conversations with him,” Jones said, “have been more about making sure that he articulates to the staff and to coach [] and everybody involved, that he really gives them the input that helps him be the best he can be, make the plays he’s most comfortable with, doing those kinds of things.”

    At face value, I think we all agree that it is important that open lines of conversation remain between the players, coaches and staff.  While I won't do the research on this, I feel pretty confident in asserting that throughout the of football there has never been a team that was successful, and yet did not maintain open dialogue within the team.  That having been said, I cannot help but question Jerry Jones motivation in having that conversation with Romo.  Could it be maybe Romo comment's such as “we were exposed” following the 44 to 6 rout at the hands of the Eagles?  Perhaps what Jerry was really telling Romo, and he likely extended a similar statement to the remainder of the Dallas team, is keep the issues in house.  If you have a problem, the media is not going to solve it.  In fact, in the media's hand's that issue will morph into a much bigger issue, as it makes whatever walls that prevented you from telling the person responsible for the issue in the first place all the more insurmountable.  

    Among the many positives that Jerry Jones and Wade Phillips have already noted from their changes, such as a faster , improvement's in Special Team's, and more confidence in the backup QB John Kitna, I think we can find further renewed hope in how they are addressing the drama that plagued the majority of the 2008 season.

    I am 35, married and a father of 2 boys. I have been a Cowboys fan since Jimmy Johnson took over; not because I had anything against Tom Landry, but because it just so happens I was old enough to start following and understanding football right as that new era began. Since then, I haven't missed games if I could help it.

    Nice post! I watched the entire press conference yesterday, and while it was very obvious to me that there have many, many discussions throughout the team about the problems of last year there was something more that became very obvious to me. Either the players, coaches, and staff perform this year! or Heads are going to roll! The first to fall will be Wade Phillips, owner votes of confidence that heavy and this early in the year can mean only one thing, Doom! If things do not change.
