  • So Jerry did go on to walk back a little bit of that testiness at the end of the interview.

  • But Marcus, you're taking a deep breath after you heard that.

  • What do you make of Jones comments?

  • I mean, listen, Jerry knows it's a leadership void.

  • We play the same song.

  • We've been playing the same song, but it's obvious on this team.

  • Your leader fractured his ankle, okay?

  • And he's not in the locker room anymore to make sure everything is running smoothly.

  • Guys getting back on track.

  • It relates on the field as well that Prescott was on the field.

  • This team was still bad.

  • They were still having turnovers.

  • The defense was still giving up a lot and and they were in games because that Prescott was on the field.

  • Being a leader, there's a leadership boy, and then you go to another level, the coaching staff.

  • It's a leadership void.

  • This team is making the same damn missed aches they've been making since Week two of the season.

  • So at some point, the leadership of the coaches need to say, Hey, we're not going to allow ourselves to be beat this way anymore.

  • That's the second thing.

  • The third thing is the general manager.

  • Yes, Jerry Jones.

  • I'm talking to you.

  • Maybe it's time for somebody to come in That's gonna be ingrained and roster building, making sure you don't have cataclysmic problems if people get injured or you lose position groups or things like this transpired defensively, you are devoid of talent.

  • I don't know if anybody else told you, but you are.

  • You devoid of talent up front.

  • There's not enough playmakers and players on the defense right now.

  • It's a leadership void on all three levels, and anybody that's watching football being around football and watching what's happening in Dallas knows.

  • It's a damn leadership boy and also a production boy and wrong decisions being made.

  • And I'm gonna leave it at that because I've been around this game long enough.

  • I started playing football when I was six and finished when I was 31 years old.

  • That's 25 years of football playing the leading man for in college, and when the leadership void is missing, I can tell because I've been a part of it.

  • Yes, it's a void that's called keeping it 100.

  • I think the Cowboys organization has been exposed over the past couple weeks.

  • When we talked about Dak Prescott for the last 18 months, it was always the contract situation, and when it tied to the financial aspect, it was often like the Cowboys wanting deck.

  • Now the reports have come out that they offered him a really, really good contract, and he has decided to say no, Right?

  • Maybe he knew more than we did, you know, Maybe he knew a little bit more.

  • About what The what?

  • The reality of that organization.

  • Waas.

  • And I think Dak Prescott is sitting there right now, going.

  • You know what?

  • As I'm sitting there watching this unfold, maybe Dallas isn't the right place for me.

  • Like maybe Dallas is not the place for my future.

  • Because if I'm Dak Prescott, I'm sitting there going, How can they fall apart so fast so much without me?

  • Like he's a really good player.

  • I get all that, but teams lose players and quarterbacks at times and they don't fall apart.

  • The Cowboys organizationally have fallen apart, and I think Dak is going You know what?

  • This isn't a one year fix Me coming back next year is not gonna fix everything that's going on with Marcus's point at the top and what's going on with the lack of leadership at the head coaching position and what's going around the lack of leadership at all the coaching positions and the other players.

  • The Cowboys organization in many ways has been exposed.

  • Players change, quarterbacks change.

  • Coaches change.

  • But the one constant here is the owner, Jerry Jones.

  • After he, you know, sniped at that radio host, he apologized by saying, Well, you know, there's an old saying you if a guy old man has a little money, you don't wanna piss him off or something.

  • I think I don't even think that's real saying, by the way, it's very tactically confusing.

  • But let's talk about that money, Jerry.

  • And let's talk about how you spent it, because in the year 2020 there is nothing more important in football than passing the ball and stopping the past.

  • Jerry Jones did not chose not to pay the quarterback who passed the football.

  • I know they offered him a contract, but it wasn't what he wanted, okay, and meanwhile, he didn't invest money in stopping the past in the right players.

  • Zika Elliott.

  • They drafted before J.

  • Jalen Ramsey.

  • We saw balling out last night.

  • They paid him and Jaylin Smith let Byron Jones walk, and they can't pass the ball or stop the past.

  • It's not that complicated.

  • It's not complicated.

  • This is a poorly built football team, and you're seeing the consequences.
