A Very American Coup By Michael – Louis Ingram, Editor-in-Chief...
The Dallas Who??
NORTH CAROLINA (BASN) — It’s official, the Dallas Cowboys are now irrelevant.
They’re now, in fact, are the Notre Dame of the NFL!! Therefore, Cowboy fans shouldn’t be fooled by these last two lackluster wins against the Giants and the Detroit Lions, because the Cowboys are not going to make the playoffs.
With a 3-7 record, Tony Romo out with a broken collarbone, Wade Phillips fired, Jon Kitna under center, Jason Garrett in charge, Jerry Jones’ Super Bowl party has been canceled.
As a result, owner Jerry Jones should cut off his big screen TV in the sky at Jerry’s World, and force this dysfunctional team to play the remaining of their home games on some random high school football field in Texas .
No more special privileges.
No more celebrity treatment.
No more cheerleaders.
No more artificial turf.
Besides, Emmitt Smith is not coming back, neither is Michael Irvin, Troy Aikmen or Jimmy Johnson. So stop telling everybody how great these players were, stop having an award ceremony at the 50-yard line honoring them.
Focus on the here and now.
Therefore, as a staff and organization, the Dallas Cowboys should remove all those shiny blue, five-pointed stars off of every player’s helmet and start from scratch.
And if the current players on the rosters do not perform up to par, they should shamefully have to play the entire game in front of those die-hard Dallas fans with a starless helmet until they prove themselves worthy.
This little experiment would definitely change the culture of losing that has infected this team and the organization.
Because while everybody is finger-pointing at Wade Phillips and Jerry Jones, the blame still remains on the players.
Because even though the Cowboys have a two game winning streak, their schedule gets a little tougher with a big game on Thanksgiving against the defending Super Bowl Champion New Orleans Saints and Drew Brees.
After that, on Dec. 5th, they have Peyton Manning and the Indianapolis Colts in Indianapolis followed by games against NFC East rivals the Philadelphia Eagles and the Washington Redskins.
