Will Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones ever learn?
Earlier this week, he made news after an unfortunate choice of wording at a press conference once again made him (and unfortunately his team) the laughing stock of the NFL.
Now, he is running his mouth once again.
The organization held a ceremony on Monday in Oxnard, Ca., to kick off the beginning of Cowboys’ training camp. Festivities included skydivers, the world-famous Dallas Cowboys cheerleaders, and unfortunately, a speech from Jerry Jones. In his speech, he delivered the following invitation to the fans:
“Y’all should come to Cowboys Stadium and watch us beat the Giants’ asses,”
Jerry, Jerry, Jerry….
Where do I begin?
I was raised to believe that you never talk trash; let your play on the field do the talking for you. Particularly when you have done absolutely nothing of late to back it up.
I don’t think I need to remind Jones that the New York Giants are the reigning Super Bowl Champions, and I don’t think that I need to remind him that it was due in large part due to yet another Cowboy collapse at the end of the season which included a 31-14 beat down at the hands of the Giants.
In their two meetings last season, both victories for the Giants, Eli Manning threw for a ridiculous 746 yards and 5 touchdowns against the Cowboys.
The Giants have won two Super Bowls in the last five years; in contrast, the Cowboys have won one playoff game.
I think it’s safe to say that the Cowboys don’t have a leg to stand on when it comes to talking trash to their division rivals.
To make matters worse, the Cowboys must first travel to MetLife Stadium where they will face the Giants in the season-opener. The Giants don’t even come to Dallas until October 28.
But now, Jones has riled up the Giants once again, as if they really needed any more help. They already hate the Cowboys. Why add fuel to the fire?
Come on, Jerry. Cowboy fans are growing tired–tired of being a laughing stock, and tired of losing.
I know you want to win. I respect that. But the time has come to stop talking and start winning. Focus on getting your players and coaches in the position to prove themselves on the field–not behind a microphone.
