Even though the Cowboys’ body is still warm from last weekends loss to the Giants that killed any hopes for a sixth Super Bowl ring, local writers are already lining up with their pitchforks and getting ready to poke and prod at the Cowboys every chance they get.
I don’t think I was able to find one article in todays papers that had anything positive to say about our beloved franchise, a franchise that puts food on most of those writers tables.
Newy Scrugs was perhaps the most critical and maybe even the most volatile as well. It seems the whole point of his article in the Star-Telegram was to drive a wedge in between head coach Wade Phillips and newly promoted assistant coach Jason Garrett. Here is what he said…
Who else runs their pro football club like this? Cowboys owner/general manager Jerry Jones is off his rocker to make Jason Garrett the highest paid assistant coach in NFL history. It’s like letting your mistress stay in the guest room. Jerry is in love with Jason Garrett, even though he’s married to Wade Phillips.
Wade walked into this with his eyes wide open because Garrett was hired by the Cowboys before he was. It’s Super Bowl or bust for the head coach. Win big or lose your job after ’08. We all see what this looks like. Wade is just keeping the seat warm for the golden red-headed child.
You don’t see any championship club in the NFL that is operating like this. Look no further to why Jones’ team hasn’t won a playoff game in 11 seasons.
Some brutal criticism of the Cowboys overall, and a very cheap shot at Jerry Jones! I guess we should all be prepared for a long off season loaded with plenty of criticism and no shortage of haters. The funny part is while they are good at pointing out problems, they offer no solutions of their own.
I guess I should get used to it by now, as it happens every single year. Luckily, I’ve never been one to put much stock in what these writers have to say. They write about the Cowboys for the money, I write about the Cowboys because I love the team.
I still believe!
