The grass is blue, the sky is red, and the Dallas Cowboys are a well run oiled machine. That’s what Jerry Jones would like you to believe. Dallas is a mess. They currently sit at 2-5 and have been outscored by 67 on the season.
Mike McCarthy isn’t the right guy for the job. Dallas has taken a significant step back from Jason Garrett. When that’s the case, you hired the wrong guy. Jerry is refusing to hit the panic button.
When asked about the leadership void in Dallas, Jerry lost his mind:
“Well, shut up and let me answer. No. . . . You’re not asking me that,” Jones said, via Michael Gehlken of the Dallas Morning News. “I gave you the answer. When I go into the locker room, there’s no leadership void in my eyes. Now, that’s your answer. Let’s move on.”
For the record, Jerry later apologized to the reporter. The point still stood. Jerry is frustrated, and he can’t hide it.
The Cowboys season can be encapsulated by one moment. Andy Dalton gets laid out. Not a single Cowboy on offense cares.
Not a single Cowboys player even confronted Jon Bostic. This Cowboys team has zero heart. When you get beat by 23 to a no-name Washington team, there is an effort issue.
The Cowboys are never going to win until Jerry Jones stops hiring puppets. Repeatedly, he employs yes men like Dave Campo, Jason Garrett, and now McCarthy. All C or below level coaches he can control.
Dallas has plenty of talent. They need real leadership. Jerry is mad because he knows the truth. He doesn’t want to give up the power to progress this organization forward.
