Dallas Cowboys Fans Should Not Panic Over Lack of Free Agent Signings
The natural instinct of most NFL fans is to overreact to the moves their teams do or do not make. Fans are not patient. They do not want to see their team sit still and do nothing. This is true with every team, but it is especially true with the fans of the Dallas Cowboys.
Cowboys fans are tired of losing and they are tired of being mediocre. They are sick of Jerry Jones, sick of being mocked by the rest of the NFL fans and sick of the jokes on twitter. The fans are sick of all of it and want change.
Needless to say, Cowboys fans are not thrilled with the events that have transpired over the first few days of free agency. The only moves Dallas has made so far is to release DeMarcus Ware and sign Jeremy Mincey and Terrell McClain. No offense to Mincey and McClain, but fans were hoping for something more. I understand the frustration of the fans, but I believe the quiet free agent period thus far is not a reason for panic—and here is why.
There is no free agent who can save the Cowboys or make them a great team. Dallas has a lot of holes to fill — not just one or two. The only way to fill a lot of holes is to have multiple good drafts. I know that Dallas does not have a history of drafting well, but that is the only way to have prolonged success in the NFL.
Jerry Jones will never admit it and some Cowboys fans will never admit it, but the cold, hard truth is, Dallas is not even close to sniffing a Super Bowl. Throwing big money at free agents will not change that fact. When you are as deep in the wilderness of mediocrity as the Cowboys are, you cannot just pay a toll and jump on the expressway. You have to rely on your resources to find your way out, and this year, the biggest resource for Dallas is the NFL Draft.
