Lack Of Desire Downfall Of Dallas Cowboys?

What more can be said of the organization known as the Dallas Cowboys. Mediocrity has not only become the status quo, but almost acceptable.

Year after year the story remains the same. Someone within the organization will build the hype of how America’s Team will once again rise to the top. Some will give in to the hype while others such as the media will tell a different story. What truly is the dilemma?

Is it an owner that can’t seem to make good decisions? Perhaps the failure can be attributed to a coaching staff that still isn’t even sure who is going to be calling the plays come game time. It might even fall on the shoulders of the players themselves. Surely we should expect more out of them considering the paychecks they are taking home.

I choose option D, all of the above.

The organization lacks just that…organization.

It’s hard to expect too much from a team that doesn’t even know what postseason success tastes like. I refer to lack of success from the players, not to the franchise as a whole.

Could this year be different?

Last year Jason Witten made quite the declaration, and while he did his part as always his counterparts failed to live up to their potential, with the exception of several others.

The potential is there, but is it the desire that is missing?

There are many good reports coming out of camp, but that’s normal this time of the year. Maybe this year we can be justifiably excited. I still have faith in this group that they can be the ones to take us back to glory.

A little can do attitude and hard work will take you a long way in this league. If you throw in the desire you might have just found the recipe for success.

    What people desire the most in their job is to be recognized. The Dallas players get that regardless of how much they accomplish. Jimmy Johnson would cut players that failed to show the right attitude no matter their present status (Everson Walls for example). That no longer exists with the Cowboys and as long as the players are in the spot light regardless of the team’s success, nothing will change.
