Cowboys fans put past behind ahead of Eagles playoff game

Here’s an excerpt that features Joe D:

After 13 years of playoff frustration – and an 0-6 record in those win-or-go-home games – many Dallas Cowboys fans look at tonight’s game against Philadelphia with cautious optimism and a healthy respect for the past.

That’s Joe DeCaro’s take, anyway, and this lifelong Cowboys fan from New York City – a staff blogger for – can’t understand it.

“In our weekly chats, it seems very, very few are taking the plunge and getting excited,” said DeCaro, “JoeD” to his readers. “It’s like they don’t want to jinx it.”

That’s understandable.

Sure, the ‘Boys beat the Eagles twice this year, including Sunday’s thumping in Arlington, the site of tonight’s game. And the Cowboys are on a roll, winners of three straight, two of them shutouts and the third against the previously undefeated New Orleans Saints.

The running game is clicking, Tony Romo seems to have an answer for any defensive scheme and the Cowboys “D” has been lights out. What could possibly go wrong?

Oh yeah, there was that game against the New York Giants on Jan. 13, 2008, their third matchup of the year. The high-flying Cowboys won the first two. They lost the one that really counted.

The fans haven’t forgotten.

To DeCaro, though, that was then and this is now.

Just as spring brings hope to every baseball fan, even in North Texas, DeCaro figures the parity found throughout the NFL means a few off-season changes can lift last year’s losers right into the playoff race.

“I’m very optimistic and have been all year,” he said. “I figured playoffs and believed we’d win the NFC East, no doubt about it.”

But when he saw the enthusiasm of fans in Philadelphia and New York, and then looked at Dallas, “I wondered, ‘Where’s the noise?’ “

Is It Time To Hit The Panic Button?

Wow….I am with Joe D on this one. The 2008 Dallas Cowboys seem to be in a fiery tail spin after a loss to the Arizona Cardinals. Wade Phillips will say everything is fine, he sugar coats losses, and Tony Romo will simply say they were outplayed. The only thing that bothers me is that teams have been outplaying the Cowboys for the past 3 weeks now and there is no signs of impending improvment. Terrell Owens has been diminished into a 8 million dollar complimentary player to Marion Barber and Felix Jones. Jason Witten was close to non-existent today. So what’s going on in the heart of Cowboys land? I have no absolute clue. None whatsoever! And thats the scary part. No one seems to know why they can’t perform to thier level. Absolutely no one. Not Tony Romo, not Terrell Owens, not Marion Barber, not Bradie James, not Demarcus Ware, no one. So where are the leaders of this team? Who is getting in people’s faces for sub-par performances everywhere? Anybody, anyone?

Many players on this team are passive by nature. Many players on this team believe that they are men and don’t need to be yelled at or called out on their performances. Thats where they are wrong. The defense played great the first half holding Arizona. The second half came and they turned into swiss cheese. The secondary is horrid and Demarcus Ware always seems to be a step too late. Pacman Jones looked like a 12 year old boy trying to cover a man out there versus Fitzgerald and Brian Stewart would be better off calling a womens softball game than the Cowboys defensive scheme. Tony Romo at times has looked like a 1st year rookie over the past few weeks than the gun slinging burner we all know he is. Jason’s Garrett’s playing calling at times as well has looked overly conservative as well. This Dallas Cowboy team looks absolutely nothing like the team that beat both Cleveland and Philadelphia a few weeks ago. I am scraed to say that what would happen if we played someone actually good like the Broncos or the Chargers. We would get our butts kicked. Sorry to play the pessimist but you can’t blame me for watching 3 quarters of horrid football by a team that was supposed to be built to win now. Jerry Jones must be having many a sleepless nights nowadays.

The game of football is all about execution. Do your assignment and the play will work to perfection. Today Romo was running for his life. The Dallas Cowboys offensive line was completely dominated. I say DOMINATED. The were outplayed physically and emotionally. I think thats where the problem lies. Too many players on this team arent executing. They are not prepared. They are not motivated. So how do we fix this? Didn’t I already ask this question before……… Hey Mr. Phillips, you need to deliver a really good and long ass chewing. I know it isn’t your style. You prefer men to be men but come on Wade. 3 weeks of sloppy football in a row? You need to call out players on their missed assignments. You need to call out the whole offensive line for almost getting Romo killed today and you need to give another ass chewing to your defense and special teams for playing sub-par. Thats another thing, how many of you out there are now wishing Joe Avezanno was still our special teams coach, This Bruce Reed guy absolutley Sucks! The game started with a busted special teams play and ended with one. If I was Jerry Jones I would of fired the guy on the spot. No questions asked. That is unacceptable.

So overall there is alot of blame to go around for today’s loss. Don’t get me wrong people, I LOVE the Cowboys but their play is utterly unacceptable. This team has gone from the juggernauts of the NFL to it’s joke and I for one as a fan and as loyal follower have to stand up and say something. I know it’s harsh but if this team plays to it’s potential, there isn’t anyone in the league that can compare. And I am not saying that just because I love the Boys. Someone in this team has to stand up and demand accountability and no one does. Patrick Crayton tried to play this role after the loss today but he didn’t go into details. Just stating that people on this team need to start being held accountable and that they needed an ass chewing after the way they played. Good start, now follow through. Something you guys havent been doing lately.
