Nobody loves the spotlight like Jaylon Smith, except for maybe Jerry Jones. The owner of the Dallas Cowboys has never found a microphone he didn’t want to fondle nor a crowd he didn’t want to address. So given that his franchise that he has molded into a $6 billion nation-state is starring in HBO’s Hard Knocks documentary this year, it’s no surprise that we’ve gotten a big dose of Jones front and center.

Episode 3 may have been the ultimate ode as Jones, frustrated with the amount of actual football stuff broadcasted in Episode 1, had his glorious shrine of The Star in Frisco showcased for the first 10 minutes of the episode. Jones of course has an affinity for showmen and his love for Smith of course is well known. That’s why it’s shocking a bit, telling even, that Smith is nowhere to be seen in the edits of Hard Knocks over the first three episodes. Dive into the Cowboys Wire podcast’s first episode of our new season to hear more about it and other takeaways from training camp and the preseason, including the Covid outbreak, CeeDee Lamb’s fantasy value and over/under on Dallas’ win total.
