Jerry Jones was entertained by a Cowboys practice fight

Cowboys owner and General Manager Jerry Jones witnessed a practice fight over the weekend, and he liked what he saw.

Jones’s reaction to seeing J.J. Wilcox and Dez Bryant go at it was not to express concern about injuries, or about players letting their tempers get the best of them. Instead, Jones came away impressed by the way Wilcox can throw a punch.

I don’t want any of Wilcox,” Jones said, via the Star-Telegram. “He’s got the fastest hands on the team and I just want him with me. That’s the quickest I’ve seen on a football field. He can put ‘em on it. Plus, he’s not afraid to go getcha either. That was one of the best little tit-for-tats I’ve seen in 25 years.”

Wilcox and Bryant both said after the fight that it was just a sign that they’re all competitors, and Cowboys coach Jason Garrett said the same. Perhaps other players who want to get noticed by the owner/G.M. should pick a fight on the practice field.

    Was this Jerry or Jon Gruden?

    According to pics floating around twitter, that’s not all he was entertained by.

    It’s too easy to make fun of the Cowboys, that it’s almost not even fun.

    They key word here is “almost.”

    Yeah Jerrah, until your prize receiver ends up with a broken hand. You know, the guy with discipline problems? Come to think of it, your ENTIRE team has issues with this. Think it may have something to do with the example you’re giving with your comments? Smh

    Fighting is the only thing that gives the Sith Lords great pleasure.

    First PFTPoet rankings list that been reasonable and didn’t somehow over-hype Cordarelle Patterson

    Jerry Jones has gladiator events in the offseason for the 1%.

    This is why the NFL and it’s fans will always be considered nothing but a bunch of mouth breathing troglodytes.

    He’s so desperate to win it’s pathetic.

    You admire the will to win but when it get like this, it’s downright pathetic.

    What is it with so-called sports fans and warriors squealing “You hate me, you all hate me!” running to your room and slamming your bedroom door like a whiny 5-year-old past due for her nap, in response to any and all intelligent, objective commentary that is unflattering to your favorites?

    The fight was over who gets to play Xbox first in the film room.

    Dez said it was nothign and that they were going to the local mall to sag their pants.

    Who cares Jerry? Your team is still going to be terrible. Last place in the NFC East is all yours you demented freak.

    As and Eagles fan I agree with the first comment, may Jerry own and run the Cowboys till he is 150 years old!

    I’ve always wondered, what is tat, how can I get some, and how do I exchange it for the other thing?

    Afterwards J.J. came over and asked Jerry if he could borrow a few bucks. Jones handed him $17,000 and apologised that it was all he had on him at the time.

    Y’all idiots believe anything.That was not Jerry Jones, just somebody trying to be funny.

  37. runningoutofboundsisforgringos says: Aug 5, 2014 5:54 PM

    Halas used to go down to Fleet Street to watch the bar brawls, and invite the winners to tryout with the Bears. Maybe Jerry’s onto something

  38. dubblelznhell says: Aug 5, 2014 7:25 PM

    Jones will end up like Davis….dead before claiming one last Super Bowl

  39. bubbybrisket says: Aug 5, 2014 8:04 PM

    Jerry looks like Hugh Hefner…I decided.

  40. raiderapologist says: Aug 5, 2014 9:09 PM

    Jones is going to end up making Al Davis look normal by comparison.
