Silence is Golden

After the recent rehash of the T.O. drama and the Pacman Jones talk things suddenly got very quiet in the world of the Dallas Cowboys. The last week actually gave me a chance to recharge my batteries for next season. It is amazing how nice it was to have no drama or rumor/speculation about the team even if it only lasts a week. Maybe this has been what all of the offseason moves have been about. I'm sure a lot of the players, coaches, and front office executives are happy about the new found calm surrounding the team.

Say what you want about cutting the talent that T.O. brought to the field. I can't argue that his talents won't be missed. But you would have to agree that the circus seems to have left town with Terrell Owens. Imagine if T.O.'s VH1 series were being filmed in Dallas. Things would be out of control at this point.

I hope that the new approach the team is taking is going to work. Getting rid of T.O., Greg Ellis and several other players completely changed the structure of the team. I know it is allowing everyone to focus on their jobs a lot more so I have to believe it will help. Time will tell.


  1. Amen. When is the last time things have been this quiet? Before TO obviously, probably before Parcells and Quincy Carter. It hasn't been this quiet since we really sucked. And then before that, there were even more off-field distractions in the mid-nineties. It has been nice. Is it possible we are actually assembling a team and not an assortment of stars? That's so unlike Jones. It has to be influence from Phillips.

  2. It's nice for now, but this could also be a bad thing 4 or 5 months from now. There won't be anymore excuses for not winning. So if they start losing, all everyone will be talking about is how the Cowboys lost T.O. and everyone else. Let's just hope it's addition by subtraction.
