On Monday, the Dallas Cowboys will play their fourth game of the regular season. After game one, I had a good feeling about the team. However, in their second game, the Dallas Cowboys disappointed badly and in the third they won by less than an impressive way.
Ever since Jimmy Johnson was fired as the Dallas Cowboys' head coach, the lack of upper management experience has hurt the team. In fact, the single greatest hurdle keeping the team from being great is Cowboys' owner Jerry Jones. In the NFL, real leadership comes of the top and sadly the owner for the Dallas Cowboys is more concerned with his own ego than winning the Superbowl.
This season, rather than owner Jerry Jones focusing on what is needed for the Dallas Cowboys to return to the Superbowl, he is instead more interested continuing to earn more money for himself and his family than in seeing the big picture. I get angry every time I watch Jerry Jones parade himself on television in that pizza commercial.
Texans take the game of football very seriously and when it comes to our favorite team the Dallas Cowboys, we expect to see great things every Sunday afternoon. Some of the best football players in the world wear a Dallas Cowboys uniform, but there is a team management problem and the buck for that has to stop at Jerry Jones' office.
Tomorrow night, the Dallas Cowboys play the Chicago Bears on Monday night football. While I hope the team shows up ready to kick some butt, in reality I have no confidence the team will be any better this weekend than they were two weeks ago or even in their victory against Tampa Bay last weekend.
Win, lose or draw - I will continue to support the players on the Cowboys' team, even though they are being limited by an ownership structure that keeps holding them back. The owner of a professional NFL team should be more interested in team building and winning than putting his own smiling face in TV commercials simply to further line his own pockets.
