Dallas Cowboy Fan…Big Time

Posted by Pete | Posted in News | Posted on 10-09-2014

Ever since there was a Dallas Cowboy team, I was a fan….Eddie LaBaron was one of  my heroes…All 5’6″ of him…I mean he had to throw the ball almost straight up to get the ball over those big lineman…But he was a real competitor but lasted only one year. He went into the front office for the Atlanta Falcons because he had an excellent football mind. Back to the Cowboys, I am still a fan, win or lose, Meredith, Morton, Stauback, White, Romo and there are a few others in there, including Garrett, but it did not matter which one they used at qb, I was still a fan. They have had some good ones in the offensive line, the defensive line, defensive backs, running backs, receivers, on and on and on. Good and bad, win or lose, I was a fan…I was disappointed when Jerry Jones took over and fired Coach Landry, my real hero, and changed the complexion of the team. Still, I was a fan…Things look bad now, have for a while, and to me it is still not about the players or coaches, it is about ownership….I read today about the trouble Mr. Jones was in with a female or two, being sued and mind you, I am not casting stones….All of us, from time to time, have problems of some kind or the other. But I am wondering if Mr. Jones has some problems that in turn create the problems on the field. I am still a fan…In my opinion, Mr. Jones should take about 5, 10 million down to Bermuda, Costa Rica   or some other location, get his girl friends on his knee, how a good time and let those in the know run his football team. He can fly in a see a game two or three times a year, but stay the heck away from the football field…That’s just my opinion and it will not happen, but I wish it would. That said, I’m still a fan of the Cowboys and Coach Landry.

I concur exactly, especialy in the part about Jerry Jones. Jerry Jones is the man in the Cowboy organization with the money. The sooner he hires a competent coaching staff and backs away (to Bermuda or some other far away place), the sooner the Cowboys will win football games again. I suppose Tom Landry is too old now to get back into coaching, but the Cowboys are in need of another Tom Landry: one with not only suburb coaching skills and knowledge but also the ability to get the best from his players while showing a determination to win in a Christian sportsmanlike manner.

Coach Landry has passed on but there are others who possess the ability to handle the job.

I didn’t know that Coach Landry had passed away. The greatest generation has just about passed, leaving the sad state of the world to us and the sorricest. The prospect is somewhat freightening. I am not sure that the sorricest generation is capable of the sacrifices endured by the Greatest in creating a better world for all of us, whether it’s football, economic productiviness and stability, or a peaceful world.
