What’s wrong with the Dallas Cowboys?
That’s a question that may draw laughs from Cowboys and NFL fans, alike. In fact, the Cowboys are perceived as one of the most overrated and worst run teams in the league. To a certain extent, there is some truth behind that perception, but it’s not as bad as the media makes it out to be.
Or did we forget that, in back-to-back seasons, the team was one game away from earning a playoff berth?
If, the ball bounces their way in one game or they don’t suffer six season-ending injuries on defense in 2012, chances are that they could have made the playoffs, but I’m not here to make excuses for them.
What’s really wrong with the Cowboys is their general manager.
Jerry Jones, the general manager, is what is wrong with the Cowboys; there is no beating around the bush on this one. He has single-handedly taken the Cowboys from being, at one point, a standard to follow in the NFL to the laughing stock that they are today.
For 18 years, Jones has been trying to build a Super Bowl winning team his way and, needless to say, he has not been successful. Year in and year out, Jones has wasted drafts and overpaid one-year wonders trying to relive the success that the Cowboys enjoyed in the early to mid ‘90s. I’m going to go out on a limb and say that nothing will change, until Jones the owner gets rid of Jones the general manager.
