Just Saying: Cowboys’ Support Cast Deserve Respect

Hey, even background actors get paid.

It’s time we credit the Dallas Cowboys for doing something with nothing.

Credit head coach Jason Garrett. Stephen Jones and yes, general manager Jerry Jones (I take no responsibility for your gagging).

With a controversial NFL Draft up and away, and with rookies out on the field proving their worth, this team finding no names is nothing short of skill.

Miracle? I wouldn’t describe it like that.

Skill. That’s more I like it.

Look at last season as an indicator of what this organization has been able to do for a second straight season. The Cowboys have collected players off the street, and plugged them in successfully for immediate impact and usage.

Names like Kyle Wilber, George Selvie and Drake Nevis. And more to come. Each have found a way to a spotlight. A place where they found an opportunity to highlight their attributes and talents.

For these players, it’s a continuation of their dreams, and a halt on the real life ahead.

For the Cowboys, these players mean so much more. It means no DeMarcus Ware, no Anthony Spencer, no Jay Ratliff, no problem.

No really, no problem.

The Cowboys, media and staff need to remove the no name sticker.

These players are proving to be the backbone of the team, and the difference between failure and success.

At the very least, they deserve to have their name called out. Just saying.
