If you’re like me, the last off season has been worrisome with the lock-out, not knowing what changes to expect or even if there would be a season this year. I have to admit, I have stayed away from writing about the Boys because I didn’t want to come across as cold or unconcerned about this season…the truth is, I was mad about it. We all know that the NFL is a money making machine and for the most part, we are all willing to pay our share to revel in our teams victories, but making the fans believe that there may not even be a season is just cruel. It seems to me that greed plays far more a roll in the NFL than it should. But, enough about that, the lock-out is over, practices are in full swing and games begin this week! It’s about time; this off season has felt like the longest in history!
In trying to make it though until practices started and not much happening in the off season with cuts, etc., I had to get up to speed on what all has happened and thought there maybe others who needed to do the same. Below is the listing of the cuts and signings the Cowboys have made this year so far to bring us all current. A few I totally agree with, a few I don’t, and honestly a few I’ve never heard of but will have high hopes for this year. How do you feel about the cuts or the signings?
I have had enough of the excuses, enough of the bitter disappointments, enough of the changes and re-building…I want to see some major “W’s” in our column this year and expect a play-off run all the way through to the big game. It’s time for our team to shine again and make everyone remember why the Dallas Cowboys are America’s Team!
