Cowboys, We Need To Talk

Cowboys, we have to talk.  No, it’s not bad.  It’s just, well… I think we need to take a week off.  No, I don’t want to start seeing other teams.  Oh come, on Cowboys.  Don’t cry!  It’s going to be ok.  It’s just that, when I went to bed on Monday night, I didn’t say anything to you, because I didn’t want to say anything rash.

I was sitting there watching you flirt with the Chicago Bears, turning over the ball to them anytime they asked nicely.  It just made me think that once upon a time, things were different.  You remember back in the 90’s when you got me 3 Super Bowls for my birthday?  Oh man, you sure were something back then.

Cowboys, we had some times, didn’t we?  You remember that thing you used to do?  You used to put the football in the end zone and it would get me so excited that I could scream.  You would move the ball down the field so effectively – Nobody could hold a candle to you.  But we were so young then and just swept up in the moment.

Then, I think we just got comfortable.  For my part, I guess I expected you to be the same forever.  I thought you would always be on top of your game, always the best team in the room.  I think, in part, my very expectation made you complacent.  Even when you let your game slip, I still bought your tickets and gear – I always thought of you in the same way as when we were young and full of success.

Have the Houston Texans caught my eye?  Well, sure they look good over there, but they can’t ever replace you.  I still love you, Cowboys.  I just need a little time to think.  I don’t want to say anything I can’t take back, so I just want to take the next week and reflect on where we go from here.  It’s playoff time for the Rangers and I think we could both just use a little time apart.

I promise I’ll be back next week, and I’ll be just as excited as ever to see you.  All I ask is that you spend our little time apart thinking of how to reignite our flame.  Keep your chin up, Cowboys.  Our best days might be right around the corner.

    Until a Couple of years ago, I never watch any games except for Cowboys game and that included Super Bowl, I feel to some extent I have move on from the boys. I no longer feel the connection to this team like I use to. I am still a Cowboys fan, but i dont think we have the right coach or GM in place to every win a Super Bowl again. JJ has pretty much guarantee future cap hits with this team. We have no depth. We are young again, but we have no real NFL talent and no depth, Dont get me wrong we have some player but we dont have the depth we need to get us to the next level which is deep in the play off. JJ forgot how to win championship. JJ think it is still done with money and he is way wrong. Championships are won in the draft, player development, and the unselfish hard work done away from the bright lights. The trenches is where the battle must be won. The boys are weak on the offensive and defensive line despite the development of player like Lissemore and Brent. The boys history of the last 16 years show a team that is average 500 percent winning record. You can go back 7 years and it is the same record, 26 games same record, this year same record, last year and same record. I mean winning percentage. It hard to get excited about being average. I guess to some extent we have been spoiled by Tom landry Legacy and the Jimmy Johnson Era. I think is is time to put the JJ era to bed, he is done and so are the Cowboys.

    The way to kick start a bad team is firstly to clear the dead wood out. That starts with #28 FELIX JONES. This man is an anchor around the team’s throat that ignites a negative feeling as soon as the team steps onto the park. Garrett you have Dunbar, Olawale and Tanner yet you stick with an ANCHOR and look at how it NEGATIVELY affects everyone’s performance. Look at Belichick watch his games and how he uses an undrafted rookie #38 BOLDEN. Garrett and GM Jones … WATCH HOW IT IS DONE WITH BOLDEN YOU TWO FRAUDS!!!
