Cowboys Players Are Playing For Their Jobs

Yes, it is true. The Dallas Cowboys are still mathematically alive for the NFL playoffs. Dallas would need a lot of help to reach the postseason, so the players are focusing on bettering themselves each game and playing for their jobs.

Jon Kitna has emerged as a leader on the team lately and he now has shown that he is a voice of reason.

“The reality is they fired our head coach, and that’s an indictment of your football team,” Kitna said. “So any time the coaching staff changes and there’s a new regime, you have a massive turnover of players. I think that’s the biggest motivation, trying to play well and put your best foot forward that way.

“It’s a team thing, not an individual thing,” Kitna said. “If you don’t win football games, heads are going to roll, so to speak. That’s the biggest team motivational factor, I think.”

This is not saying that any players are giving up on hope that they could get a miracle end to the season and make the playoffs. What it does say is the players are focusing on making themselves better as a team and as individuals. They’re focusing on securing their jobs for the future.
