Special Teams Less Than Impressive

Am I forgetting some Special Team stats that are impressive from the last few years?  I don’t think so!

Our Special Teams have been less than impressive for a long time.

Back in 1990, Jimmy Johnson hired Joe Avezzano to lead the Special Teams. I remember his teams having that spark that made you sit on the edge of your seat when the punt or kickoff returner caught the ball. Do you remember all of those runbacks in the 90s?

It seems like since Avezzano left in 2003, when Bill Parcells took over, our Special Teams have the talent but not the coaching to give them that spark. I think we need Joe Avezzano back.

I mean come on, he is the only coach to win three Special Team Coach of the year awards. In 1991 the Cowboys led the NFL scoring with 20 points and kick off return average of 21.7 yards. Wouldn’t it be great to have that SPARK back?

Avezzano hasn’t coached in the NFL since 2005 after being released by the Oakland Raiders. He currently is owner of “Coach Joe’s” Bar and Grill in Frisco, Texas.

    I’ve been saying this for two years. A buddy of mine on Sportsline said he read somewhere that coach Joe was asked and said he’d jump at the chance to come back and coach our special teams.

    wow that would be great! Anyway we can get to Jerry Jones and have a talk with him? lol

  3. I agree with you 100%. Back in the day we were an awsome team. We couldn’t be stopped. The niners had their glory days in the 80’s we had ours in the 90’s. Them punt returns were unbelieveable “SPECIAL TEAMS” is the key. We do not have that spark like we use to.
    When we played the Cardinals, I could not believe my eyes when the Cardinals scored on a punt return. Us Cowboys fans ARE NOT USE TO THE OPPONENT SCORING ON A PUNT RETURN,HELL NO! WE WERE AWFUL.IT WAS AN EMBARRASEMENT.
    When we played the Rams…..I,M STILL UPSET ABOUT THE GAME, I STILL CAN’T TALK ABOUT IT. Later STARSTRUCK, KEEP UP WITH THE FANTASTIC WORK. WE NEED JOE AVEZZANO BACK !! QUICK, FAST AND A HURRY!!!!!!!

    `lin I think it was more Parcells than Jerry Jones. Why he hasn’t been asked back I don’t know.

    I would love to see Coach Joe again. I wonder if something went wrong with he and Jerry Jones since Jerry doesn’t even seem to entertain the idea.
