I truly don’t understand it. The team with arguably the most talent in the NFL finds a way to piss away their season year after year. Whether the quarterback fumbles away the season or the star receiver attempts to sabotage the season, life in Dallas has been a far cry from when Jimmy proudly proclaimed, “How bout dem Cowboys”.
I’ve noticed the problems and I’m sure you’ve noticed them too. But it seems that many high profile free agents in the NFL somehow fail to notice. First, Ray Lewis spoke of how he would love to join the Cowboys. And now, Julius Peppers has reportedly stated that he will accept a trade to only four teams in the league. The only one revealed? The Dallas Cowboys.
So it seems the Cowboys can still reel them in one way or another. Will it make a difference? Probably not. Too much bad karma surrounds them. But they should be proud that many players are still addicted to the thought of suiting up for “America’s Team”. The Playmaker is definitely proud (and equally addicted).
