Well how many of us Dallas fans actually finished watching the slaughter of the Dallas Cowboys last Sunday against the New Orleans Saints? From the Facebook feeds of loyal Dallas fans a majority of them turned the game off and found something else to occupy their time. A few of us, the vast minority, finished watching the game like a bad car wreck, you just couldn’t look away. The Dallas Cowboys have finally taken away what fans enjoy the most: their emotions.
After three years of the same old predictable, average Dallas Cowboys it’s becoming very easy to predict which team will show up and when they will show up. An interesting statistic for those who may not know, current Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett is now, with the loss to the Saints, 4-20 verses teams that are over .500 and 17-1 verses teams that are under .500 which makes a grand total of 21-21 in his three-year tenure as head coach. It’s plain to see; this team is average and will continue to be average.
The cold hard reality has finally set in with the Dallas Cowboys fan base. Dallas Cowboys Nation is beginning to realize it’s no use getting mad when the Cowboys are what they are; a smoke and mirrors want to be good team. They are not. There are a handful of reasons why and I’ll do my best to explain them.
