I'm interested in EVERYONE'S thoughts why it has been 23 years since our last Super Bowl appearance? Something is just not right here.
I remember a man named Clint Murchinson who bought the Cowboys in 1960. He hired Tom Landry. Our first year we had nothing but everyone's scrubs with no draft. Our first draft was 1961. Yet being an expansion team starting from scratch and practically nothing, we manage to make it to our first NFL Championship game in 1966 and went on a 20 year streak that no one has matched (but the Patriot is extremely similar and close, so I throw them in there as well) in 59 years.
Now I don't expect the Cowboys to make the playoffs every year and go to the Super Bowl 5 times in a decade, but something is wrong with our current beloved franchise when its been 23 years and running.
Wanna know what the problem is? This is. And when I watched it Sunday night, I just shook my head. From "The Athletic"... reviewing Episode 1 of "All Or Nothing"... I will highlight the important stuff. This took place after the Broncos game. You remember the Broncos game... when you became a Chiefs fan?
Minute 48 is everything about coaching the Dallas Cowboys and why only certain people would ever take this job, despite the fact it should be the best job in the sport: The team arrived and as Jason Garrett readies to address his group, Jerry cuts in, “Coach, I want to say something before you say anything.” There it is. In a nutshell. If you ever wanted to see how Jason Garrett must work around Jerry Jones, there it is. I assume Jimmy Johnson would have lost his mind at that moment. Bill Parcells would have quit. But, the guys who work for Jerry understand, this is the job. You want to coach the Cowboys, you have to understand your authority may be undermined at any moment. You will see this all season long. It is what it is and that will never change
I rest my case.
First of all, you know damn well I was super upset with the Boys that day for no effort and showing up in the Denver game. And when that was followed up by the Atlanta game, I knew our season was toast but didn't want to say anything at the time. I knew after witnessing those two games, we were in serious trouble.
Now that I don't have anything else to add to your above response, I will give you and 1 because that is exactly how I feel. I just wanted someone else to say it,
P.S. Except when I lost Mittens 3 years ago, Jerry is the only person that has made me cry. twice. The hiring of Phillips and Campo. The Galloway, R. Williams, Q. Carter, etc., that just made me angry. I think it was around 2007 when I started to call Jerry a cancer.
