The day the Cowboys take advice from Donovan McNabb is the day pigs fly.
The former Philadelphia Eagles pivot suggested earlier this week that the Dallas Cowboys should trade both Tony Romo and Dez Bryant, and allow younger players to take over for them. McNabb compared Bryant to former Eagles receiver (and major diva) Terrell Owens, calling those type of teammates a distraction to the rest of the team.
Cowboys' owner/GM Jerry Jones was asked about McNabb's comments on Friday, and unsurprisingly, he strongly disagrees with him.
"That's actually the very first I've seen or heard of that," the Cowboys owner told KRLD-FM on Friday, according to Jon Machota of the Dallas Morning News. "That's absurd. We may have been blessed with our depth because we're having some young receivers come on, but make no mistake about it, Dez Bryant's a major difference-maker. We got a long way to go. He singularly can make a difference in big games. We're anxious to get him back.
"There are no plans, no thought, I've not even had a bad dream about trading him."
The Cowboys have yet to announce their starting quarterback once Romo is fully healthy, but it doesn't sound like he'll be calling McNabb for more ridiculous advice.
