‘WE LIKE OUR GUYS’
Cowboys executive vice president Stephen Jones is the very guy who loves to remind fans that roster building is a 365 days a year venture.
But time and again when they pass on adding a key piece to the defensive puzzle, the lame “we like our guys” excuse pops up.
Football is a business, both teams and players know this harsh reality. If a player becomes available who is clearly an upgrade and the value is doable, pull the trigger.
Playing the loyalty game in the NFL is a losing proposition.
Cowboys fans have been pleading for a powerful, run stuffing defensive tackle and imposing safety for years.
Instead of fixing what everyone sees is broken, Dallas has short-changed these positions with lesser, situational players who couldn’t start for most playoff teams. It’s passed time to stop ignoring critical positions on the defense.
