While there’s no ledger for such a thing, the 2010 Dallas Cowboys could be the most-talked about 1-5 team in the history of football. Just eight weeks ago, the buzz surrounding the Cowboys was that the team was primed to become the first to play a Super Bowl in its home stadium.
Between then and now, the Cowboys found a variety of ways, many self-inflicted, to lose five of six games, including two in the division and four against conference opponents. Tony Romo is out 6-8 weeks, coach Wade Phillips is on the hot seat, and somewhere Jerry Jones is sitting at a heavy wood desk rubbing his temples after the latest sign of the Dal-pocalypse.
I can’t help but recall analyst Charles Davis saying during a planning meeting for “NFL Total Access” recently (and I’m paraphrasing): “Until the Cowboys give me something to talk about, there’s really nothing to talk about.”
Most believe the Cowboys’ season is effectively over. Maybe all the talk has been silenced.
But, seriously, what’s next for the Cowboys? Davis, Brian Baldinger and Mike Mayock took up that question Tuesday. In the video above, the trio examine the biggest issues surrounding the Cowboys and on what the organization needs to focus going forward.
