Jerry turns Sac-man; Hooray!

I don't believe it. Jerry Jones must have taken his smart pills this morning because releasing beleaguered cornerback Pacman Jones is the first step toward putting the Dallas Cowboys back together. Pacman's agent said the cornerback was "surprised" and "somewhat hurt" by the move, but, for the life of me, I can't figure out why. Tell me what he did for Dallas this season beside cause another disruption. That, of course, is what he does wherever he goes, which is why I thought Jerry Jones was out of his mind to take him on in the first place. But he did, and he suffered the consequences for a stupid move. Now it's time to give Jerry credit. He recognized his mistake and was quick to exorcise it. Pacman's agent predicted his client will be back next year because "he has a lot of ability and is eager to get back on the field," but these guys just don't get it. Pacman's ability and desire to play never had anything to do with his doing time as a spectator. The guy can't stay out of trouble. Period. He spends almost as much time on the police blotter as he does the active roster. So it doesn't matter how much ability he has; if he can't play by the rules he can't play. Fortunately for Dallas, he doesn't anymore.

Congratulating Jerry for letting Pacman go is like congratulating an addict for quitting- impressive, but it was self inflicted and he shouldn't have been there anyway. His blotter was long when he got him, and there's NO WAY any interview process could convince one he had changed.... once again, he sold his soul for underpriced talent. Any negatives the Cowboys suffered from this relationship are on Mr. Jones AND Mr. Jones.

However, players like Pacman Jones, that do NOT learn from their transgressions,  need to be removed from the sport in which they play in.People like Pacman Jones needs to be removed from society. Pacman should spend the rest of his day in an 8 by 8 cell and never givin the chance again to poison society with his ghetto lifestyle and thugish behavior.

I am not sure about these two being "model citizens", but Albert Haynesworth and Kerry Collins come to mind immediately when the above comment is made.  Haynesworth was slammed all over not only the NFL, but other media outlets, when he "cleated" another player.  As far as Collins, he was basically out of the league as far as GM's are concerned, after his alcohol issues.  I for one was ecstatic when the Giants picked him up, and he rewarded them with some very good play in their Super Bowl year.  He has proven, along with Haynesworth, that making "one" mistake is not grounds for banishing them to the media outposts of the world.  However, players like Pacman Jones, that do NOT learn from their transgressions,  need to be removed from the sport in which they play in.

As a Titans fan, I can say thank goodness he is someone else's problem now.  His skills have eroded and I was sick of reading about him in the paper everyday.  I bet he will get on with another team, but then he will be their problem.  Go Titans!

it's funny to see how Judge is saying Pacman has been a distraction when as soon as we signed him it was him and his co-workers (media) who kept Adam in the news by saying "wait and see" and if he was to take a dump without wiping his behind that would be in the news as well.  Just for people to wish on another mans demise is ridiculous. even in Tennessee it was crazy to see how many people wanted him in the news for the misdemeanors he was convicted of.   well since he's out of the way for now how about turning some attention to:

Marvin Harrison (PA laws have his gun being at the site of a shooting with bullets coming from his "rare" pistol); Larry Johnson (assault); Matt Jones especially him since he had felony cocaine charges?

And I agree with what someone said about Tank Johnson needing to go.  He doesn't fit the 3-4 scheme that Dallas runs but as soon as he is released you better believe it will be because of his past history even though he's been quiet since he's been reinstated.  And he never once shot off any weapons himself.  it was his dumb A** bodyguard / friend who did that.
