The Dallas Cowboys have been one of the NFL’s elite franchises for too many years to count. “America’s Team” has certainly delivered in the past, winning Super Bowls and etching names in NFL history. That may be one reason why the newest edition of the Dallas Cowboys has been so hard to swallow. There haven’t been big changes in management. Jerry Jones has won a Super Bowl. But his choice of coaches has now come into serious question.
For the last few years the Dallas Cowboys have been the pinup boys for underachievement. Every season experts look across the roster and proclaim the Cowboys Super Bowl favorites. They did it again this season the Dallas Cowboys have responded with a 1-4 start and appear to be mired in confusion and self destruction. Unfortunately, the only recourse seems to be a complete housecleaning. Wade Philips has to be seeing the end of his career in Dallas.
Unless of course, the turnaround can begin tonight with a winning performance against the New York Giants in Cowboys Stadium. A win tonight would be followed by a contest against the Jacksonville Jaguars, an obviously winnable game. It’ll get tougher the following week against the Green Bay Packers but it’s still doable. At 4-4 the Cowboys could set off on a winning streak and still make the playoffs. Easing the pain won’t be easy, but it is still a possibility.
