Thinking back to the past few seasons and comparing them with this season, the thing I’m most excited about as I watch the Dallas Cowboys is THEIR excitement! I cannot tell you how great it is as a fan to watch my Cowboys play with actual smiles on their faces, and not just the players – the coaches too. How great is it to see the Cowboys score a touchdown or make a good play and, as the cameras pan over to Wade Phillips, to see him literally jumping for joy and giving high-fives (sometimes painful ones) to his football team?
Not to take anything away from any of our talented, well-known past coaches, who will remain nameless, (starts with P – ends with arcells) but come ON now? So much of how our guys feel is a direct reflection from the men on the sidelines who hold so much of the power.
I don’t know about you, but I feel good when I’m around people who seem happy and excited and I feel bad when I’m around people who suck the positivity out of the atmosphere. It’s easier for our guys to have fun when the coaching staff shows excitement and gives proper attention to good plays and touchdowns.
It’s so nice to see the Dallas Cowboys winning, but to me it’s even better to see them winning and having fun! They are happy to be on the field and doing what they love, scoring points, and making great plays. Give credit to all the coaches on the sidelines for providing a great atmosphere, and motivating the team so that they can play and perform beyond their expectations.
Personally, I REALLY want our guys to go to the Super Bowl and winning another ring would be fantastic. But honestly, I feel like I can wait for the huge accolades because I’m having so much fun as a fan again. I want this feeling to last forever! Long live the Cowboys and cheers to our Boys having fun on the football field again!
