No More Excuses

With the 2009 NFL Draft just around the corner, Cowboys fans across the nation have more questions than answers. The uncertainty of 2009 has many of us anxious to get this thing started. Predictions of 8-8 by so-called experts have many of us feeling frustrated and insulted.

Opinions of how to reach the pinnacle of the NFL vary as much as the hundreds of mock drafts being put together by football minds all over the country.

I see debates on various sites about who’s to blame and what the answers are. T.O. should not have been released. Owens should have been released. Felix Jones should be the starter. Tashard Choice should be the starter. Marion Barber should be the starter. Romo’s not the answer. Romo is without a doubt the answer. Wade should be fired. Jerry should fire himself.

With the possibility of a Miles Austin exodus looming over our heads, I’m one very nervous Cowboys fan without any real answers.

Keep in mind these are just the surface issues. I could probably write a 5,000 word essay just dealing with the questions Cowboys fans have. With no real answers.

I’m compelled to believe we can all agree on one thing. The time for excuses is over.

No more riding on our laurels. No more talk about 13-3 or 13 Pro Bowlers. No more “But this team did this and that team did that”. Time to lay to rest 2007 and 2008. The only true way to move forward is to( as cliche as it may sound) put the past behind us and don’t look back. No more talk about 44-6.

The pressure on this team to succeed – from top to bottom – is more intense than at any time that I can remember. This season will answer many questions. It is a make-or-break year for this organization. The time is now for Mr. Jones, Mr Phillips, Mr. Garrett, and Mr. Romo.

The time is now. No more excuses.

    I agree. The time for excuses is over. This our team and we have what we have. You also have to think that Jerry won’t let Austin go after seeing him develop into a potential threat, but also, do you take a second rounder that the Jets may offer? I say, no, but there are many MANY questions that can’t be answered yet.

    It’s time to move on. 44-6 was embarassing, but that’s over. No more Romo Savior posts, no more Romo sucks posts. He’s the best we have and at least we didn’t have to scrounge for a QB that we had to in years past.

    Cowboy Bill, you hit the nail on the head. No more excuses, especially these…

    1. Romo needs time to grow, he’ll be great one day.

    and…

    2. The O-Line had so and so injured, you can’t blame them.

    And one more thing, please stop playing guys out of position and then ragging on them when they fail to meet expectations!

    All I got to say is bring back Jimmy Johnson… But we all know that won’t haappen.
