These are the perks of owning an NFL franchise. You can basically say whatever you want. Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett might not want his own players talking trash about the Super Bowl XLVI champs, but far be it from him to stand in the way of his boss.

And while Jones clearly has no problem sharing his feelings, he's not ready to talk to wide receiver Dez Bryant, currently entangled in legal issues after allegedly striking his mother during an argument this month. During an appearance on KRLD-FM, Jones said he has yet to speak with Bryant about his latest brush with the law. When asked why, Jones clarified himself.

"Because I'm too pissed to talk to him."

If Bryant has nine lives with the Cowboys, he already might have used his eighth.
