Was Loss To Jaguars The Worst In Cowboys History?

By Wally Lynn for 105.3 The Fan

ARLINGTON (105.3 THE FAN) – Was Sunday’s loss in Arlington the worst in Cowboys history?

The notion is being mentioned as the Cowboys now have a better record than only winless Buffalo.   Consider that this was one of the worst teams in the NFL and Dallas got manhandled.  Everybody wants Wade Phillips fired.  The Cowboys are simply not playing for the coach.  There is no hope.

Did you see what David Garrard had to say about the Cowboys after the game?  He told SI’s Peter King,  “It just looked like they weren’t into the game like an NFL team should be.” King went on to say “Put Wade out of his misery.  It is time to fire Wade. I would go with Jason Garrett or Joe DiCamillas the rest of the way, but Jerry, you have got to fire your head coach.”

Another possibility:  Wade simply resigns to put himself out of this misery.  What can he possibly say today about the disaster yesterday?  Should be an interesting day at the Ranch.

Partial quote from Cowboys Owner/GM Jerry Jones on Sunday:

“Yes I’m embarrassed.  I take the ultimate responsibility here.  That is the way we are structured and that is the way I run it.  I am dumbfounded that we are 1-7 (actually it is 1-6).  I thought we had one of the teams that could be a top competitor in the NFL so I am very, very sorry to our fans.  You should have better than this.  I won’t rest until we figure some things out and get us to a different spot.  I don’t have the answers (on where to go from here) but again I’m sorry for our record, embarrassed and certainly have the ability to help us change what we do out here.  That is my job.”

    The worst loss(es) were to Cleveland in the late 60s-especially one in Dallas where the kicker whiffed the kickoff.

    1. ron says:

      Worst game was to the expansion Houston Texans in their first game in the NFL

  2. Don T. says:

    “The Cowboys are simply not playing for the coach.” This isn’t high school gentlemen. The 2009 player salaries totaled just under $91 million. Individual salaries ranged from $13.6 million to $310,000. If you’re not playing for the coach, how about playing for your paychecks?

    One sentence Jerry, “Get a REAL General (Football) Manager! Step a side.

  4. Bob says:

    Thank you Laura Miller for not allow Jerry to build his palace in Dallas.

  5. Michael Whitfield says:

    Dallas needs to get this thing turned around like quick, or people will start singing ‘Moma’s don’t let your babies grow up to be Cowboys’.

    Might not be the worst loss , but is definetly the worst team & coaches. The ideal of promoting garrett to head coach is rediculous. He was lucky to be a second string quarteback and was noway a starter quality. He has suckedd year after year as a offensive cordinator why would you even consider making him a head coach is beyond me. Clean house get a real head coach let him pick his own team and then let him have ome authority over his players. Just say no to puppetcoaches and to cam cupcake.

    Nick Saban to the cowboys!!!!!!!!!!!

    The Cowboys lost to the Steelers in the seventh game of the ’65 season to drop to 2-5 and Tom Landry actually cried in the locker room afterward. But that loss may have been the turning point of the franchise; they went 5-2 the rest of the way and then hit it big in ’66. A 38-0 loss to the Cardinals in 1970 was very, very bad (they went on to the Super Bowl that year; not happening this year). The loss to the Browns the two seasons prior to ’70 were also terrible, depressing losses.

  10. Michael T says:

    If Jerry fires Wade without firing the GM he’s one incredible hippocrite S.O.B. M.F. from L. (Not that I’m bitter.)

  11. Jerry Jones says:

    The biggest loss was firing Jimmy Johnson and hiring myself as G.M. so I’ll be resigning and moving to Kenya to live in Obama’s native country.

    1. RonyTomo says:

      Me too!

  12. Dave says:

    For what its worth the Cowboys sucked long before the Jaguars beat them. Why they were favored in the first place is a mystery to me.

    Did Jerry have the face lift and the toupee before this season? This is important.
