Bitching and moaning and complaining… this player wants this much money, this player doesn’t think his contract is good enough, this player doesn’t want on that team anymore… so on and so on.
I must admit, I’m one happy Cowboys fan to know that none of that complaining is coming out of Dallas, Texas.
Since Terrell Owens left, its been very calm and quiet in the Big D. What a relief. I love it!
I know it won’t stay like this and I don’t expect it to, but for now we should savor it, ya know?
I was reading how Sheldon Brown of the Eagles is no longer satisified with his contract and it will affect his play. The next thing you know the Eagles are firing back with a powerful press release letting Brown know who’s boss.
And unless you were out of the country or in a coma this offseason you knew all about the Jay Cutler saga. The former Denver frontman wanted out. He got his wish and was moved to Chicago but not before alot of press and drama infected the sports world.
I have to say even though my immediate reaction to the releases of Terrell Owens and Roy Williams was devastation, I have a ton of respect for Jerry Jones for making the right move. He was right and he took a huge chance in releasing them. But he did what was best for the team and I believe in the long run everyone will understand.
Say what you want about Jerry Jones but no one loves this team more than him. I honestly believe this franchise is heading in a new direction. Jerry has taken some chances and learned many lessons. Maybe he’s realizing taking a chance on the big names isn’t the way you win championships. Maybe the concept that ‘no one player is bigger than the team’ has finally sunk in.
Of course, we still have several months until the season starts, not to mention the draft this weekend, so he could still take us by surprise and make an outrageous move. But, I don’t think it will happen.
Tony Romo, Jason Witten and Roy Williams will take the reigns and lead this team to victory. We won’t have to worry about who will be counting passes or carries. DeMarcus Ware, Terence Newman and Bradie James will defend the post and make us proud.
The billion dollar home of the Cowboys will be packed game after game and television ratings will be off the charts. Not because of one name, but because of one team. You can thank Jerry for that.
