I hate to be a downer after a win but the Cowboys do not make it hard.
In what should have been an easy “bounce-back” win on the road against a pathetic Panthers defense, the Cowboys offense continued to make all the mental and physical mistakes that have come to describe their exceedingly mediocre existence since 1997.
Mediocre is the perfect word to describe the Cowboys because they are talented enough at the skill positions to win games they should win (mostly) but also just bone-headed enough to lose the games they should lose (mostly). There are few exceptions in between that all get balanced out in the wash. In fact, since the year 2000, the organization is 1 game above .500 with 1 playoff win. Average. Mediocre. Hard to watch. Unacceptable.
The lone bright spot is the Cowboys defense has been a notable improvement from last season, as they should be with the millions of dollars and wasted draft picks Mr. Jones spent on improving the unit. Despite this, I still wonder if they should be better. They are still unreliable and still prone to bend (and sometimes even break) late in the 4th quarter.
I could fill up the rest of this article with the same crap I say every week about how it needs to get better. I could fill up the rest of this article about what I would do if I were the GM. I could tell you that without Sean Lee and Phil Costa, the Cowboys could really suffer in the coming weeks against quality opponents. I am not going to do any of that. I am going to do the one thing that will hurt Jerry the most. I am going to stop talking about the Cowboys. I will still be watching and cheering (in Cowboys Stadium next week, no less) but I am done talking about the same old crap that will certainly not change until Mr. Jones has departed.
