The list of guys you don't want to irritate if you're a member of the Cowboys organization starts and ends right here:

1. Jerry Jones

Unfortunately for you, David Buehler, old No. 1's not too happy with how your season's gone.

Buehler, the team's kickoff specialist, was placed on injured reserve Thursday after re-injuring his right groin. His season is over, and Jones is peeved Buehler didn't prepare better for his return after missing four games earlier in the season with a similar injury.

"Let me just say this, I'm frustrated because you would expect players to -- and I understand injuries -- but he has known all along how to prepare and how to get into shape and how to prepare himself and be ready to be a kicker," Jones told KRLD-FM on Friday.

The Cowboys owner didn't exactly glow over the idea of Dan Bailey taking over Buehler's duties down the stretch.

"It's frustrating to have your kicker injured. He's a valuable asset, especially with the rules as they are right now. We're going to be playing some key away games out in the weather and we'd like to have (Buehler) kicking in them because he is a better kickoff guy than Bailey. I'm very frustrated. It is his job to stay ready to play and prepare himself so that those kinds of things, for what he's got to do, don't come up."

In the span of a minute, Jones verbally shreds both Cowboys kickers.

Impressive and terrifying.
