Shutdown Corner - NFL

From Deadspin comes this video of Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones, apparently at a bar, and seemingly with a little bit of truth juice in him.

If you ever wanted to know what he really thought of Bill Parcells and/or Tim Tebow, today's your lucky day. A naughty language warning is in full effect.

Here's a quick transcript, as best as I can understand it.

Jerry Jones: Romo was a miracle.

Fan: It was a miracle, wasn't it?

Jerry: He almost never got in, and he almost was gone. Tebow would never hit the field.

Fan: What if you were the Jaguars owner? Would you just, just draft him to sell (expletive)in' jerseys?

Jerry: That's the only reason I brought in Bill Parcells. (inaudible). Bill's not worth a [expletive]. I love him ...

Fan: Yeah, I know you do.

Jerry: He's not worth a shit, but I wanted a — they were on my [expletive] so bad. J's gotta have a yes man. So to get this [expletive]in' stadium, I needed to bring his [expletive] in.

Fan: What, you, you wouldn't take Tebow in the third round?

Jerry: Why? He'd never get on the field. I can't get him out there. I can't get him out there.

So if you had Tim Tebow going to the Cowboys in any of your mock drafts, you can go ahead and tear those up. And if you believed that Jerry Jones hired Bill Parcells for football reasons, you can let that illusion go, too.

For less than 60 seconds of dim video shot in a bar, it's pretty enlightening stuff. I wish more NFL owners would do this every once in a while.
