Emmit Smith is spot on about the Dallas Cowboys‘ mental toughness … not being strong enough for four quarters.
While watching the Giants game, I really noticed it. So many mental mistakes on our part. From first half penalties, to slow developing plays, and poor defense. This team lacks true grit. Heck, I will say it again …. This team lacks true grit! I wouldn’t say no mental toughness, but none when it counts. The Cowboys have so much overall team talent, which just keeps underachieving. Like one of our writers stated, I think Jerry really undermines what this team can do. I can’t say exactly how, but I do know ever since Jerry Jones fired Jimmy Johnson and took total control of this team, he has disappointed. Jerry has done a great job of Marketing the team, but as I remember it, the NFL is about winning big games, going to the playoffs, and winning the Super Bowl!!! I just get so frustrated of the letdowns EVERY YEAR! It starts from the top and rolls downhill. I never hear about about Patriots/Packers/Steelers owners who meddle, nor any other team’s owners who meddle so much. If they do, they sure hide it well from the media. I am tired of mediocrity from the Dallas Cowboys. That is what their legacy has become.
Yes, I am Frustrated in Austin!!!!! The last time I checked, the NFL is about winning ball games.
