Another season ends for the Dallas Cowboys with a 8-8 record and missing the playoffs by one game. One thing you have to say is the Cowboys have been consistent in that regard. This is the first time a team has ended three consecutive seasons with the same record since they did it back in 2000-2002 finishing 5-11 under Dave Campo. They also finished with a 12-4 record in 1993-1995. Rather than discuss the records or what they could’ve done, let’s focus on what they should do. Here are five moves they need to make.

1. Cut DeMarcus Ware

Ware missed a game for the first time in his career, in fact he missed three of them. It looks as if father time has caught up with him. He had he least productive season since joining the league in 2005. With 40 tackles and only six sacks you can’t expect Jerry Jones to be comfortable with paying him $16 million next season. Ware came out and said today that he won’t take a paycut but he will restructure. Look for Ware to become a salary cap casualty effective June 1st.

    Bravo, Bravo!!!!

  • Earl Robertson

    I agree with everything u said but add Heath whoever thought he could play needs to be fired and he should get a job at teaching 7 the grade math

  • Josh Hart

    Hire an actual GM

  • jamison

    How abt firing the DC the assistant coaches did a good job on the defense side of the ball for the amount of players they had to shuffle in do to injuries. Find a way to trade M. Austin we can get a 3 or 4 round pick. Totally agree with the conditioning coaches gots to go

  • Dean

    Bill Callahan made this a great running team. He just doesn;t call runs enough. keep him as o line coach because the zone scheme is great but not play caller

  • Juanito Juanito

    Kubiak for oc and call the plays, he like run a lot

  • David V

    1. Fire Jerry the GM
    2. Fire Jerry the VP
    3 Fire Jerry the coach
    4 Fire Jerry the offensive coordinator
    5 Fire Jerry the defensive coordinator

    • RM

      Get over it dud.

  • Old Frog

    I know everyone, including myself is saying Ware isn’t worth what he’s being paid but is it possible he could play outside linebacker in the 4-3 scheme or is he too slow?

  • MercWithaMouth

    I disagree on Eberflus, he too is adjusting back to a 4-3 and playing LB in a 4-3 is different than in a 3-4 so coaching is going to take a little more time… Id give Eberflus more time

  • Dunk Eggwhite

    Dear Mr. Conn, I wanted to point out an error in your article regarding the fact that this is the time a team has had three consecutive seasons with the same record. The truth is this has happened twelve times in NFL history and since 2002, it has happened two other times besides this time by the Cowboys….both times by the Buffalo Bills…(2006-2008 with a record of 7-9 and 2011-2013 with a record of 6-10).
