OK, back to sports. Or most imprtantly back to the NFL. Everybody has piled on Wade, he was too soft, Jerry's puppet and lost his team. I'm going to share with you my villians in this drama starting with the #1 on down.
The Team! These guys are paid tons of money to play well. To motivate themselves and each other. To call out quitters even if it's behind closed doors. This team quit on a good coach who had thier backs and didn't throw them under the bus even when THEY got him fired. Wade's mistake was that he treated them like men and expected them to perform to thier potential. And when your quarterback states in the media not once but twice that it's no big deal, you win you loose and go on to next year...not only is that unacceptable, it's disgusting!
The general manager. If a general manager on any other team had assembled a group that most knowlegable football people grade as being able to cut 20 to 25 players, they'd have already been fired! And let's look at the draft results over the last 5 years. How many are still with the team or more important, contributing to the team. My grade is F-. Give the Team to Stephen or another "football executive".
The "talking heads". Wade was too soft. Protected his players too much. How quickly we forget. Dallas had the #1 hard *ss with Bill Parcells. How did that end up? His team quit on him becase he was too "mean" to his players. When Wade came in it was supposed to be just what Dallas needed to shore up the defense and get the team back on the right track. Talk about revisionist history. And about their cratique of the team, at the beginning of the year they were all falling over themselves to say how much talent this team has. But now their consensus is tha Dallas should cut almost half the team. I think this is what my grandmother said is talking out of both sides of your mouth.
Now for all you Cowboys haters, gloating and making jokes. That's OK, it's your day now and deservedly so. But as the team has proved in the past. They might get down, but then they'll get back up to give you even more reasons to hate them!!
Every one of on the team should look Wade in the eye and appologize for not treating him with the same respect he gave them, even when they got him fired.
To close, GO COWBOYS!
