Cowboys Win, But The Pacman Jones Circus Is In Town Again

Last week was all about good vibrations.

You had Tony Romo practicing without pain, and T-New running sprints and looking like his old self.

Then of course we had the culmination of all those positive signs resulting in a dramatic win over the Redskins.

Suddenly, the Cowboys were back in the race to the post season and everything is looking fine. 

But just when we put all our worries away and stashed them back into our cluttered closets, the shelves have just collapsed and a shit-load of useless garbage comes pouring out…

Pacman Jones.

(I’ll stop calling him Pacman, when he stops acting like Pacman, and when I’m damn good well and ready to stop calling him Pacman, thank you very much!)

You know, I hate to be the one who says I told you so, but I did tell you so.

Pacman is now eligible to be reinstated this week, and is simply waiting for the commissioner who has yet to rule on his situation.

Perfect… I bet Wade, Romo and the rest of the team can’t wait to get Pacman’s sorry ass back on the field so he can continue to deliver what he has been ever since he got here…


His distraction has been, and continues to be a heavy weight that has become too much to bear.

The negativity that surrounds him and the black cloud the follows him has become like a cancerous tumor that begs to be removed.

Rather than focusing on the San Francisco 49ers, all of the coaches and players are having microphones shoved in their faces with the prevailing question, “What will the return of Pacman mean for the rest of the team?”

I’ll tell you what it means…

It means the same thing I said back in May,

“While the Cowboys seek to win a championship this season, the back pages and the big story may not be the team, but instead the ongoing Pacman drama that is expected to last well into the season and beyond.”

And back in April,

“Pacman is the last thing the Cowboys need right now. Adding such a bad influence to a team who is trying to recover from a second straight disappointing finish to their season is bad news. What this team needs most is another hero, not a thug.” 

I still stand by those statements.

    I agree with you Joe. I was against acquiring Pacman from the beginning. Then, I decided to be a team player and give him a chance once we had already made the decision to bring him on board. Well…now he has had his chance (which was supposed to be his last one) and he flunked. I don’t think Pacman is trying to change nor is he looking out for the interests of the team. We have too great a task in front of us in making the playoffs with our record the way it is. The last thing we need are more “thug distractions.” Let Pacman go. He can be a bouncer in a seedy nightclub somewhere, but he doesn’t need to be on this team.

    I say cut him we dont need him.
    I was a supporter of the Pacman,thinking it was going to be a situation like TO but he turned around and burned us there is no need for him.They got him for his dynamic kick returns/punt returns….well we now have Felix Jones for that,they got him for his ability at the Cornerback position well Newman is back and rookie Mike Jenkins is playing well for a rookie we do not need him,nor do we want him anymore.
