They had their chance.

A window pane stretched opened by Bill Parcells has slowly, and sadly, closed. It’s the end of an era.

They had their chance.

Tony Romo. Jason Witten. DeMarcus Ware. Miles Austin. The disbanding of the greatest underachievers is underway. With the salary cap being the issue it is, the only chance they have left together is an NFL bye week.

It would take an act from The Wizard of Oz to wipe away the inevitable. And really, isn’t that how the show goes? You get your spurt, your shot, your time, and like all things mechanical, there’s such thing as “shelf time.”

This talent, this era of assembled services, doesn’t come with a life-time guarantee.

Like all things not The Wizard of Oz, general manager Jerry Jones has attempted to rebrand his job title. The hiring of Scott Linehan is a band-aid to the morbid array of issues in between the playbook sheets.

Pulling Scott Linehan from Detroit is no different from pulling wide receiver Roy Williams from the Motor City.

Band-aids. For what is about to come. For those who deny what is sure to come about.
