Dallas Cowboys Should Let This Guy Go

It’s almost agonizing to sit through another NFl playoffs and think that it will be at least another year before we can even imagine the Dallas Cowboys competing for a Super Bowl.

Oh well, that’s football and as Cowboys fans we should be accustomed to disappointment.

As one of the teams getting a head start on next season Dallas will have to think long and hard about the changes that have to be made in order to make this team a contender.

Players will have to be released and others given new contracts. Rookies will have to be evaluated, and one of the most crucial parts of running a team is the hiring and firing of coaches.

It doesn’t seem that many of the coaches on the current staff have truly earned their paycheck, but nevertheless we will see many of them back next year.

While I have my opinion on a few of them, I think without a doubt one of the names that should be getting not only lots of attention, but at the very least a little, is that of strength and conditioning coach Mike Woicik.

The fact of the matter is that this guy is just not getting the job done. If Miles Austin’s perpetual hammy injuries aren’t enough to convince you, then just look to the other 500 or so guys that have made it on the injured list in the past couple of years. I think I even saw Jerry Jones himself with a bit of a gimp.

Perhaps I’m just exaggerating or just pointing fingers out of frustration to a guy that absolutely has no control over these things, but I just can’t believe that. I’ve never seen another team on any level with the constant nagging injuries that this team has experienced over the last two years.

I’m sure there are other names you guys would like to see, but for right now I’ll just say that Woicik sure be one of the first ones to go.

    I completely agree. Way too many injuries for him to be overlooked. Monte Kiffin is another. Defense was the big problem yhis year.

    Not saying I disagree, but do we think that Woicik just ‘lost it’? I mean…he kept the 90s Cowboys and 2000s Patriots in GREAT shape and he has a fist full of Superbowl rings to prove it. I wonder if his programs are not compatible with all of the new CBA rules that prevent teams from making guys working more/harder….

    Maybe if it isn’t his fault then the blame has to go to the players. It is their job to get in the best shape but looks like they rather be on the sideline collecting a check then be playing in the game. These players on this team get hurt watching film!

    fire him and hire Bennie Wylie

    Obviously, People Forget That Woicik Was The Guy That Kept us in Shape During The 90s, Then Shaped Up The Pats During Their 3 Out of 4 Cycle; You Can’t Expect Him To Be A Miracle Healer!

    The problem is not the conditioning coach- as always it is Jerry. It is jerry who gives big contracts to people who have not shown they can produce or who predictably are past their prime. Jerry is bad at the draft-and he knows that. So, when a promising player comes along, Jerry is desparate to keep them and overpays. When you have no idea how to get replacements you just throw money at what you have. It is part of why Jerry is so smitten by receivers – they are easy for him to try to grade whereas he has no idea how to judge two 3rd round level guards. No, firing the strength coach would be absurd scapegoating…so, I expect it to happen.
