What's the definition of insanity? Doing the same thing and expecting a different result. Better known as...watching the Dallas Cowboys as an organization (not just players) and expecting different results. Don't be fooled (again) by the win over the Eagles this past Sunday. The offense only scored 17 points. Without the D...we would have lost to NICK FOLES! That is a once in a season, 3 TD game by any defense/special team. Changes have to be made and players who underperform or commit bonehead penalties need to be held accountable. Jerry puts on a facade at every post game conference he does saying he is all in on his QB, his team, and his coach. Even after repeated lackluster performances and coaching debacles. Well he could learn a little something something from the Atlanta Falcons top guns.
Regardless of their 8-1 record, the Atlanta Falcons made a promise to evaluate their team each week and get rid of those who weren’t getting the job done.
Well…if players thought they were just words, the release of Ray Edwards on Monday put those words into action.
Ray Edwards signed a five-year, $30 million contract ($11 million guaranteed) in July of this year. He has done little in his 25 games with the Falcons, with just 3.5 sacks last year and none in nine games played this season. A complete bust. Money down the drain. However, Coach Mike Smith and GM Thomas Dimitroff weren't afraid to eat the cost and move on with players who were more productive.
The locker room got the notice.
"It's scary," rookie Peter Konz said, (via the Associated Press). "It makes you think. But if you do the right things, get the job done on the field, you don't have to be to worried about it.
Any player can be replaced at any time is the motto (APCBRAAT)! That's how you get things done!
Jerry...take notes please.
