Talk show hosts and editorialists are very rarely right. By the sheer amount of predictions they have to make, the odds are not in their favor.

But when they are, its good to point it out.

And with the Cowboys, it was easy! And I was right!


Two weeks ago I wrote a blog telling all Cowboys fans how this season would play out. It was called…I know what will happen this season…look it up if you want.

In it, I talk about the inconsistencies of this team and that this years team looks a lot like last years 8-8 squad. So why should we think anything different?

But I was amazed that after the first game against the Giants, fans and fellow talk show hosts were convinced that this was a Super Bowl contender and that the CULTURE at Valley Ranch had changed. Romo has matured, Garrett is a better coach and Dez finally gets it.

All crap.

And it all showed its ugly head in Seattle.

As long as Jason Garrett is coach of this team, we will see this type of inconsistency. One week they look great, the other like they are a Pop Warner team.

Play calling will leave you scratching your head. Why are they passing so much when the run game is now a strength? Why are they giving the ball at all to Felix Jones? Why is he even on the team? Why Why Why?

Why because he is Jason Garrett and is an assistant coach. Garrett is (and was) a back-up quarterback that has been thrust into the starting role. While he can hold a ship steady, he doesn’t have what it takes to win a Super Bowl. Jerry Jones needs to be looking for championship material. Garrett is not it.

So once again fans, it’s going to be a long season. The Cowboys will win some games and look legitimate. And then they will lose some games they should have won, and look like they did against Seattle.

Garrett needs to get mad, get attitude, hold players accountable. But he won’t. And the Cowboys will crawl through another mediocre season.
