NFL: A Few Thoughts on Super Bowl Weekend

The NFL has really grown a special product over the last 20-30 years. The Super Bowl has become an event like no other. Later on today, the San Francisco 49ers will take on the Baltimore Ravens. In my mind, there’s no clear favorite. The San Francisco 49ers are a young and versatile team. The Baltimore Ravens are older and possibly wiser.

Lewis-Ravens

I will not go into a detailed discussion about both teams but there are plenty of blogs that can do that with much more detail than I can. I believe this game will come down to Joe Flacco. I believe that he is the key. If he plays well, the Baltimore Ravens will win. If he plays poorly and turns the ball over, the San Francisco 49ers will win. (I would like to wish Ray Lewis good luck. He has had an outstanding, dominating career.)

Today we learned about the new inductees into the Hall of Fame –Bill Parcells, Cris Carter, Jonathan Ogden, Warren Sapp, Bill Parcells, Larry Allen, Curley Culp and Dave Robinson. Congratulations. This is a very strong class. I’m not gonna pay any attention to those who say that Michael Strahan got slighted. He will get in.

Jerry Jones promises changes

After the ridiculous loss to Jacksonville, Dallas Cowboy owner, Jerry Jones said, “Let me be real clear… There’s no way the result and the way we played tonight, there is no way I can rest, sleep, eat well, with a diet of that right there. There is no way.

“If you look at what we’re about, our team, our stadium, the pride I have in this franchise, you know it doesn’t digest. It doesn’t go down. We’ve got to do something that changes this on the field.”

I think that it is nice that the owner of the Cowboys thinks that things need to change. The team is 1-6. The Buffalo Bills are the only team worse than the Cowboys and Jones thinks that something should change. Sweet. This is like General Custer announcing that being surrounded by Indians is probably bad.

The problem with the Cowboys is the owner, Jerry Jones. Jones is not the coach, but he tries to be. The players know that the buck doesn’t stop at Wade Phillips. It stops at Jerry. Hence, the problem. This is Jerry’s team. He drafted the majority of the players without the aid of Bill Parcells. It was Jones who brought in Zach Thomas. It was only after the Cowboys got gashed for two fourth quarter runs of more than 60 yards by the Ravens that Jerry understood that Zach had no more gas in the tank. So, Jerry went and got Keith Brooking. That seemed to be a great thing last year. Not so much this year. Let’s not forget the coaching round robin Dallas fans had to endure from Chan Gailey to Dave Campo. Remember the quarterbacks after Troy Aikman? Folks like Quincy Carter and Chad Henning? Didn’t we trade away Emmitt Smith so that Troy Hambrick could start? Give me a break. Who is the GM? …oh, yeah, that is Jerry Jones also.

My suggestion is either find a coach who Jerry will listen to (not going to happen) or fire Jerry Jones. So, my conclusion is that Jerry Jones is the main problem with the Cowboys.

Parcells is outta here

Bill Parcells has retired from the Dallas Cowboys and football again. So where does this leave the Cowboys? Jimmy Johnson?

Update: I found this on SI.com from Peter King –

I called Bill Parcells on Saturday to say something I don’t often say to anyone I cover. In fact, I don’t remember ever saying it in 23 years covering the NFL.

“I really want you to coach one more year,” I said to Parcells, whom I’m known since 1985, when I moved to New York to cover the Giants for Newsday. “You’ve got a quarterback you love, and you’re having fun. I’d really love to be around that a little bit for one more year.” (more…)
