The Dallas Cowboys haven’t won a Super Bowl in 26 years. Not only is that bringing frustration to current players and Cowboys fans, but it is also irritating to Dallas legends who helped make this franchise what it is. Names like Troy Aikman, Michael Irvin, Emmitt Smith, and many others have already given their opinions as to why the Cowboys failed to get it done this year.

Now, Deion Sanders (a man who Shaq thinks should be the Cowboys head coach) is weighing in as well. The Hall of Famer, eight-time Pro Bowler, six-time All-Pro, and two-time Super Bowl champ laid out his thoughts when speaking with Bri Amanrthus of Sports Illustrated. Sanders said the team seems to always get to the right place and choke.

Why do they choke? The former Cowboy said it’s because this current team just isn’t “built for the moment.” He said past rosters wouldn’t have ever let this happen. You knew the stars of the past would show up for every game. That didn’t happen with this roster. He said these days you never know which players are going to show up.

Even though NBA legend and Cowboys fan Shaquille O’Neal really wants Jerry Jones to hire Sanders as the next head coach, the former Cowboy says he’s not interested. Sanders is currently the head coach at Jackson State University and has turned the program around. Here’s his reasoning:

"“I don’t have any desire or ambition to coach in the NFL. I have a problem with men getting their checks and not doing their jobs. I would be too tough as a coach in the NFL because I still have those old-school attributes.”"

We also have a problem with guys getting big paychecks and not doing their jobs, Deion. In reality, what Sanders feels is “too tough” is likely what this undisciplined roster needs. Sanders was then asked if he wanted to join in another role besides head coach.

The Hall of Famer declined that, too, strongly stating he is not an assistant and that he doesn’t “settle for mediocrity whatsoever.” Are you sure you don’t want to be the next head coach, Deion?! The Cowboys could really use someone with this fire and passion.
