Cowboy Bill's End Of Season Rant

I’ve had trouble all season coming up with positive things to say. Bringing doom and gloom isn’t fun for anyone. I’ve noticed that most posts on this site have some sort of positive spin by most of the writers. I try to follow suit. But I couldn’t. I was so concerned with being labeled as a “hater” that I let virtually the whole season go by with nothing to say other than a few comments on other writers’ posts. Well now it is time for me to vent.

The phrase I’m so sick of hearing-especially from Tony Romo- is “It is what it is”. What that actually means is you know the answer and you’re not man enough to say it. You’re not man enough to say you’re struggling under the pressure. You’re not man enough to say it was your fault the team lost that week. But all we get is “Turnovers are part of the game” or “Give (enter team name here) credit”. That’s crap. Total and complete crap. It’s PR spin that I aint buying.

Terrell Owens needs to just shut the hell up and play football. Period. Maybe some things he says is true. But handle your problems internally, as a team. Reporters are looking for a story. He never fails in delivering the story. He’s an incredible athlete with serious personality flaws. He’s far too inconsistent to be pointing the finger at anybody. When he’s on his game there is no better. Unfortunately, those times are getting few and far between. Maybe his age is catching up with him.

Signing Adam Jones was the second biggest blunder of 2008. This guy looked lost from the beginning. He covers about half the time and has been a disaster on special teams. Whatever he “had” at Tennessee is gone. Long gone. The only thing that’s left is off-the-field issues that a team like this does not need. Send him packing. I beg of you.

The biggest blunder was signing WR Roy Williams. So far this guy has brought nothing to the table. The chemistry was lost when Romo came back from injury and had a new personality to figure out. Not to mention Williams is a horrible route runner and is afraid to get hit. We had great chemistry with Owens, Crayton and Austin. Williams is the odd man out and history will prove that.

“They had a good game plan”… “It took us until the 3rd quarter to figure it out”… “The defenses have figured out what we’re doing”. These are not direct quotes but close enough and are all BS. The Cowboys’ offense of the 90′s was very predictable. Difference is, even when defenses KNEW what was coming they couldn’t stop it. It’s all about execution.  Plain and simple.

Wade Phillips says he’s going to put together a plan. Can’t wait. A plan. Wow. Well, Wade, PLAN on kissing your job goodbye if your PLAN fails. How bout fining Romo $10K for every interception? Or fine T.O. when he decides to cry to Deion Sanders, on national TV, before a big game? Or fine your coaches for not having an effective PLAN to begin with! Fine Flozell and Colombo for false starts every freaking game! Fine DB’s for blown coverage. Fine WR’s for blown routes. Fine Folk when he kicks it out of bounds! DO SOMETHING!  ANYTHING! I’M SICK OF THIS HORSE CRAP YOU’RE FEEDING US FANS!

Stop talking. Stop making excuses. Fix this. Fix it now. We deserve better. A guy on the radio said it best. “Cowboys fans are paying for fillet mignon but what they’re getting is Hamburger Helper”. Enough said. Now if you’ll excuse me I have to go take some more Tums.

    I am as big of a Cowboys fan as anybody….but this year this performance this constant bickering the constant childish behavior it was just horrible. As Dallas Cowboys football players you are more than a team because your fans see you as a extended more than almost any other team or fan base.This team all year wasted their talents and they put themselves before that same star we all love and hold so dearly to our heart.I was actually in a way ashamed to have my entire bedroom Cowboys after that Philly game it is just sad and I can only hope and pray that this season is a wake up call to the team and next year regardless who the coach is they will come back with desire and play every game like it was their last I am sad this season really hurt even more than the 1-15 season this one hurt

    I couldn’t agree more. It’s time to man up Cowboys.
    And, I hope you don’t mind but I copied this to my MySpace page. :)

    totally agree with you on Roy Williams . I hadn’t thought about fining the offensive line for the false starts GREAT IDEA! I missed your articles you are one of my fav’s!

    How bout dem Cowboys… What a dissapointing season. I agree with everything you said Cowboy Bill and then some. What the hell is up with Romo “it is what it is” Is he talking about his folding under pressure or what? 4 years in a role he chokes during crunch time. And I don’t want to hear it took P.Manning 8 years before he won a superbowl. If it takes Romo 8 years to win a superbowl he needs to be replace NOW… He is not the only one to blame. Jason Garrett, T.O, Roy williams (Both), Pacman and Wade. Wade can’t win the big games 0-10 during playoffs come on. I also blame Jerry Jones to for signing these guys and getting rid of The great Hall of fame coaches the cowboys once had.
    It’s time to clean house and get rid of all the guys I said. Jerry needs to be just the owner and hire a real G.M and let his coaches coach. And it is sad when the Lions go 0-16 and the Cowboys still make more headlines than the lions. At least for the lions they can rebuild, the Cowboys on the other hand are mess and in a deep hole.
    I am also sick of hearing will be back next year. Going on 13 years now and counting.
    I will always be a Cowboys fan and I’m like most of you just fustraded the way they have been playing over the years. Jerry Jones has alot work to do and changes needs to be made.
    Jimmy Johnson The Cowboys and fans need you.

    I forgot to mention the O-LINE SUCKS too. Especially False Start Adams.

    I heard someone say that the problem with Romo is that he believes his own press. Got to admit that he seemed to be a better quarterback before the glitz, glamor and girlfriends.
