Dallas Cowboys Season Over, Time To Switch Into Off Season Mode

Use your ← → (arrows) to browse


Fans of the Dallas Cowboys had their Christmas and New Year’s ruined by the losses the last two weeks to the New Orleans Saints and the Washington Redskins. That means the season is over for the Cowboys, no post season, no playoffs, no false hopes of a miracle run to a Super Bowl by a team that had rallied around a fallen teammate and another whose future doesn’t look to bright. I am speaking of course about the late Jerry Brown and his best friend facing intoxication manslaughter charges, Josh Brent.

Well, the rally fell short as has been the case in recent years.  The Cowboys did a fantastic job of starting December, but came apart finishing it. In a different type of march they came in like lions and went out like lambs.

In my forty two years as a Cowboys fan I cannot remember a season so riddled with injuries to so many crucial players. Twelve players ended up on injured reserve and truthfully at least three more could have. The two most critical losses were obviously Sean Lee and Bruce Carter. That doesn’t even take into account the injuries that did not lose a player for the season like DeMarco Murray’s foot injury and DeMarcus Ware’s entire body. Will any of us ever forget Jason Witten playing with a ruptured spleen?

    Hmmm. Aikman had Michael Irvin to throw to, Emmitt to hand off to, an offensive
    line that didn’t suck and block like turnstiles, a Daryl Johnston to block for
    Emmitt, a defense that consisted of more than ONE badly banged up All Pro. Romo
    has Ogletree who can’t run routes, a Demarco Murray who can’t stay healthy, a
    Dez Bryant who can’t stay healthy, a defense that can’t stay healthy. Hmm, maybe
    the Cowboys need to fire their strength and conditioning coach, fire Doug Free,
    fire Ogletree, and either fire their GM or at least lock him in a closet for the
    duration of the 2013 NFL draft so he doesn’t eff the draft up again.

    1. HIRE NORV. Dallas man through & through turned Troy Aikman around. Norv also made ALEX Smith look good for Cruyff’s sake!!! 2. Hire either Romeo Crennel OR Lovie Smith as Defensive Co-Ordinator and be done with DOPEY ROB R. Crennel is a good tough highly experienced defensive coach and Smith always delivers a takeaway defence, something this team lacks badly. WHAT IS THE POINT OF ALL THE INVESTMENT IN CBs CLAIBORNE & CARR IF TAKEAWAYS ARE MINIMAL??? Sure Crennel struggled at The Chiefs but he had NO QB. 3. Get rid of gutless Felix Jones – a real whimp – and draft a power running back. 4. First Rd Pick = Offensive Tackle to bookend with young Smith. 5. Release Free, Ogletree & Spears.
