The Dallas Cowboys need a CAT scan because there is some definite brain damage in my favorite NFL organization.
The organization passed on Mike Singletary and Tony Sparano. They let Sean Payton get away. And instead we hire Mr. Awshucks himself, Wade Phillips.
They let Greg Ellis go this year because they thought Anthony Spencer was ready. Anthony Spencer has been the worst player on the whole defense so far this year. On top of that, his futility is one of the reasons teams can double team Ware so he can't sacks. Didn't anyone else notice how much better we were when people had to worry about Ellis blitzing. Ware led the league in sacks last year with 20. Spencer got in covergae every time in the Broncos game. I would throw to anyone he was covering.
The Cowboys really gave up first-round pick in 2009, plus a third- and sixth-rounder and a seventh-round pick in '10 for Roy Williams. The guy is decent but definitely not worth even a first round pick. Who were we bidding against?
And then after 1 good season we gave Tony Romo a six-year, $67.4 million contract extension through 2013. I think Tony ranks in the 12-15 range in NFL QBs that is not worth 67.4 million. And then guy is doing fine make a couple of INTs in the Giants game and the coaching staff panics and decides to change the game plan. They want Romo in pocket and to play it safe. Romo is a freestyling, risk taker. If we want safe they should have signed Kyle Orton. Let the man do what he is good at. He will have his bad games but he will have some good ones too.
Jason Garrett, do you just randomly call plays or is their a game plan. I got an idea. When, the 'Boys are leading a game by running, keep running until the other team stops it cold and then play action pass.
Jerry Jones needs to stick to decorating stadiums and leave the personnel decisions to someone smarter than him, because what they have now isn't cutting it.
I am thinking Shanahan, Gruden or Cowher will be here soon, but only if Jerry can keep out of their business and throw obscene money at them.
Good luck Cowboys, I know you will need it.
