Why the Dallas Cowboys are really, really awful
I love the Dallas Cowboys. My father took me to see my first Cowboys game back in 1966. So, it is my father’s fault that I love the Cowboys. Back in the 1960s and 1970s, the Cowboys played football. They were awful toward the end of the 1980s. They dominated the early 1990s with what might be the greatest football team of all time. What Jerry Jones has done with the Dallas Cowboys since the ’90s is somewhat of a headscratcher. I’m pointing my finger at Jerry Jones because he is the owner. He has the last say on everything having to do with the Dallas Cowboys. No one seems to be accountable.
After today’s disaster, someone needs to stand up and say who stays and who should go because someone should be fired after this performance. Let’s start with Joe DeCamillis, the special teams coach. Missed field goals. Fumbled kick offs and a blocked punt. Let’s don’t forget Dez Bryant fumbling another punt today. Joe should be fired. The special teams have lost at least two games this year.
It is time for someone in the Dallas Cowboy camp to get serious and understand that you need to be precise in order to win in the NFL.
Felix Jones was a first round draft choice five years ago. One would figure if you draft a back in the first round, that back would be a sensation. He has had 12 touchdowns in five years. Emmitt Smith, another first round back, had more than 12 touchdowns in less than a half a season. He has also had 12 fumbles, not counting the huge fumble today. Finally, Felix Jones has been hurt a lot. With stone hands, fumble fingers and all the chillin’ on the bench, I don’t know why the Cowboys still have Jones. He has failed as a first round draft choice. I’m sorry. He hasn’t gotten the job down.
Dez Bryant has to be accountable for being a BEAST and a MORON. 17 touchdowns and seven fumbles in only his third year. Look, I don’t have time to watch his brooding and temper tantrums. It isn’t worth it. Laurent Robinson was here. He was catching balls. He ran the right routes. I don’t know how many interceptions Romo has thrown because Bryant hasn’t done what he was supposed to do. I need a wide receiver to catch the ball and get where he is supposed to be on time. That’s all. Bryant isn’t getting it done. Trade him, fire him or get him to do his job…without fumbling.
The Cowboys have many more problems than I have outlined here. They don’t play together. The defense is finally beginning to play well. The offense is awful. The special teams are worse. I hate to say it, but this season looks like it is already over. I just wonder where the Cowboys would be if they cut Tony Romo and got Peyton Manning in the off season.
