So this is what crybaby Jerry Jones has to stoop to doing now? Berate his own players? Read on. ->?
Jerry Jones is apparently tougher than Marion Barber By MJD At the very least, Mr. Jones believes he's in a position to question Marion Barber's toughness. Barber didn't play in Pittsburgh yesterday with calf and pinkie toe injuries, and Jones roundaboutly called him a sissy yesterday. From Star-Telegram.com: Jones believed Barberâ€™s dislocated right pinkie toe was an injury that he could have played with against Pittsburgh. Before the team boarded for its flight to Pittsburgh on Saturday, Jones was stunned Barber did not make the trip. After not practicing all week and with an additional sore calf, Barber felt he couldnâ€™t play. Jones said Barber could have taped and braced the toe well enough to allow him to play. "He can play with that injured toe," Jones said. "He can play with the soreness and a combination of those things. I see nothing that led us to believe he couldnâ€™t." That's a fantastic way to alienate a running back. I'd love to be there when Jones calls Barber into his office and says, "Awww, does him him a wittle pinkie toe boo-boo?" I think it's usually best to tread lightly where another man's injury is concerned, especially for a guy like Barber, whose toughness, to my knowledge, has never been up for debate before. I'm sure Mr. Jones is frustrated after the loss, but unless he's dealt with the exact same injuries and performed the exact same tasks he's asking someone else to perform, it's probably not wise to call that guy a wuss. I wouldn't count on that Barber/Cowboys relationship lasting a whole lot longer. If Jones thinks Barber's a sissy, and is willing to publicly insult him about it, I can't see him making Barber a cornerstone of the franchise, either. And I can't see Barber wanting to play for a guy who thinks he's Charmin-soft. & why are you worried about how i waste my points? Worry about your own unless all of a sudden you are in charge of Y/A & i don't know about it.

The fact of the matter is, Barber needed to be called out. it was an injury that could have been played with. This game was huge for the Cowboys and it's a shame Barber didn't step up. Don't get me wrong, I loathe Jerry Jones but, someone had to call Barber out.
Why waste points by cutting/pasting someone else's blog? Jerry Jones was right. Why did Barber not even get on the plane and try his calf on Sunday? Maybe it would have felt better. At the very least he should have joined his team in Pittsburg.
is kind of sad because he is so desperate of getting another superbowl ring, that he is criticizing his own players.
I seen that earlier. What a jerk. He's just pissed that they lost. He's looking to put blame on someone. That stuff should be left out of the media.
Its the right thing to do. Listen if Barber knew he couldn't play, llet someone know. This game was huge for both teams. If your gonna game plan with what you think is a full healthy roster you probably allready know what the plan is, but for barber to throw a wrench in the whole system with a half day b4 the game, well thats gonna hurt anyway you look at it. Calling a guy out in public is wrong, and i think we all agree with it, but to come to the aid of a guy, just because of that reason is stupid. This verbal lashing whether it be in the orginization behind closed doors or in public , is whats needed for this team to get back on track.
Here we go again. Jerry Jones opening his mouth again and letting all the crap fall out of it. Did Jones notice Romo's performance? Uh.... If I'm not mistaken the rookie Tashard Choice ran for the most yards against Pittsburgh this season. Jerry Jones continues to do his best to make Dallas look like a bunch of buffoons. He needs to get off the field. Marion Barber is one of the guys I actually like in Dallas, he's tough. He's a guy that gives it 100% and he obviously felt he wasn't able to-and who's to say he would have done better than Choice anyway? Unlike Romo, when he became injured and then Jerry realized "what's my backup plan? Oh, I have none" They got lucky with Choice. Jones knew all week that Marion wasn't feeling like he would be ready, he knew Choice was being prepared-why the heck did he call out Barber?

OK, I'll change his diapers!
