Falcons' Takk trade source of trouble in Cowboys' front office?

Falcons fans who dislike Dallas may get a little extra joy in knowing that the trade for Takk may be a contributing factor to Dallas losing their personal director.

#####################################################

The Cowboys may have a major problem brewing. For the last couple of offseasons, teams have reportedly inquired with personnel director Will McClay to gauge his interest in becoming their GM. In Dallas, McClay will never get that title; it will remain in the Jones family forever and a day as long as they own the team. While there are one or two jealous owners who may want to see that day come sooner or later, it shouldn’t be wagered on.

Most observers have suggested McClay could be made happy, at least for the time being, by him receiving financial compensation equal to that of a GM, and having the in-building sway on decision making a general manger normally would.

As things have unfolded over the last year plus, it seems a reasonable ask whether or not McClay feels like continuing to perform in the three-ring circus that is the Dallas Cowboys organization. To be fair, as the Cowboys collapse for the second time in three years, it can also be questioned whether or not McClay has done a good enough job to be revered and coveted the way he is.

In a sport where major decisions have to be made based on the tiny sample size of 16-game seasons, both are legitimate points of view.

On the one hand, McClay seems to be getting undermined by the coaching staff. He works in unison with Jason Garrett, Rod Marinelli and the Jones family to navigate both free agency and the draft. McClay leads a collegiate scouting team that was overruled by Garrett on draft day. Once Takk McKinley was stolen by Atlanta, rumor has it McClay’s scouting department — based on the template provided by Marinelli — identified Wisconsin’s T.J. Watt as the next best defensive end prospect. Garrett pounded the table for Taco Charlton...

SUCK IT JERRY!!!!!

Now now.,,,,,,,,,,,,but Yeah

Al Davis was a nasty sort  and I likened him to the Putin of the NFL, but Putin is a sassy compared to Al Davis.

Al Davis was fun to watch and he made things interesting every year on Draft Day.

 

But Jerry Jones?..........If I say it PK is gonna bandeded me.

It was obvious that dallas had informed takk and his family thay they would be selecting him no matter what.. his uncle showed up in a freaking sparkling blue suit and a cowboy hat... atlanta gave dallas a big ol FU on draft night and it was glorious

It's not a secret that the Cowboys overachieved despite coaching last season.

 

Elliott and that O-line covered up a lot of ills for that team last season. Mainly Garrett's coaching inadequacies.

Nfc east had the easiest schedule last season. Almost the entire division made the playoffs. Look at the division now, its a dumpter fire

This season has also exposed Prescott as being a QB who can lead a team to victory.  At best he could be a serviceable game manager, but in no way can he pout the team on his shoulders.  That might have something to do with the personal director as well.

Yes, but it his second year.

Personnel director may be ok with  Ezekiel Elliott.

Too bad so sad.
