While I am happy that the Dallas Cowboys won their game today against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, in reality they played poorly and would not have won if they had played a better team. I know that Jason Witten had a medical problem several weeks ago, but after a couple of games when he dropped easy to catch balls - I wonder what is going on with him?
It was so easy to hope that the major problems facing the Cowboys the past few years were over, after watching them defeat the New York Giants in game one of 2012. However, those feelings of happiness were short lived after the Seattle Seahawks destroyed them in game two and their small victory over the Buccaneers today did not do anything to make most fans feel better about the team.
I continue to wonder why Jerry Jones does not fire Tony Romo and find a great quarterback to lead the Cowboys into the future? There is a huge difference between a good quarterback and a great one. Tony Romo is good, but not great and that is why the team should cut its losses and draft someone for the future in the caliber of RG3 or Andrew Luck.
There is no reason why the Dallas Cowboys are not in contention for the Superbowl every single year. The team is one of the richest in the NFL and the fan base for the Cowboys is greater than any other team. The Cowboys face a foundation problem, similar to stories in the bible which refer to building a house on shifting sand. There is no steady foundation under the Dallas Cowboys and that is why the team continues to falter as each season progresses.
There are bright spots on the Dallas Cowboys team and those include Miles Austin and Kevin Ogletree. Both Austin and Ogletree show up each week ready to play football, but it takes more than two players to have a great team in the NFL. As has been the case for years, the core problem with the Dallas Cowboys is owner Jerry Jones. His huge ego and inability to hire a head coach with potential will continue to produce substandard teams for the foreseeable future.
