Comments for Dallas Cowboys Nation http://dallascowboysnation.com Dallas Cowboys News & Analysis Fri, 11 Jul 2014 02:00:21 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=3.9.1 Comment on Jimmy Johnson: Zero or Hero? by BlackSuave http://dallascowboysnation.com/2014/07/jimmy-johnson-zero-hero/#comment-19568 Fri, 11 Jul 2014 02:00:21 +0000 http://dallascowboysnation.com/?p=10067#comment-19568 I’m not upset with the article. I knew the story about Jimmy getting himself fired, him leaving a month before his ‘planned’ departure. All that carrying on he (Jimmy) did then is costing him now. The HoF voters aren’t impressed with a coach who quit in the midst of a possible 3-peat. You win three Super Bowls in a row as a coach, particularly for a premier franchise, and you’re a LOCK for the Hall. He’d have to kill 100 babies not the get in otherwise.

This doesn’t let Jerry off the hook, either. It’s been 20 years since all that nonsense. You can call it Jerry 3, Jimmy 2 all you want. We all know Jimmy’s TEAM won the 3rd one, so cut all that foolishness with that. Since then, Jerry can’t even get lucky. He can’t even hit on the law of averages and make it to a title game. In the last 18 years, every NFC team has gone to at least one…except 3 teams. Dallas is one of those 3. Get a mental image of this. It takes 2 teams to play in a conference title game. That means a team has a 1:8 chance to get there, multiplied over the course of 18 years. He’s batting .000. In short, that’s TERRIBLE. 

Still has a job, though. That in itself is amazing.

So I’ll decide what to post on. I have personally gotten over it, But the problem is other people haven’t. There’s a 4 page post on another blog about this article to prove it. Not to mention the fact that I hear it almost every day from people. So for me it is timely. 

And I didn’t bring it up just to piss people off. I did it to get it off my chest and “rant’ about it. Believe me when I tell you I have a relevant opinion about the current Cowboys. And that will come out in other post. 

But I’ll tell you right now. My job as a poster here is not to post about position battles, x’s & o’s, or anything technical. My job here is literally to rant about stuff and try and get conversation going which in turn will hopefully lead traffic to this website. Literally they brought me on to be unfiltered and passionate. Whatever is own my mind. It’s the off season. It’s boring. Maybe it’s not your style. I’m cool with that. Objective criticism is always accepted. I do really appreciate your feed back and taking the time to read it.

I’ll be in his corner till the day I die. And you’re right. Jimmy was leaving no matter what. Can’t blame that on Jerry. But while you’re screaming at everyone else to “get over it”. You need to take a little of your own advice. That was 20 years ago dude. WHO CARES WHY JIMMY LEFT. The issue is Jerry and his failure as a GM to get this team past the first round of the playoffs. Jimmy v. Jerry is irrelevant. You bringing it up “Just to piss off Cowboys fans” tells me you don’t have a relevant opinion about the current Dallas Cowboys. Your next “rant” should be about something timely.

Did they even read the article. This has nothing to do with Jerrys failures as a GM or Jimmy’s success as HC. The man was fantastic. The article is about how he left and laying all the blame at Jerry’s feet. It’s BS

Either way, can’t stand seeing that dude on the pregame show spouting off the same generic analysis every game. Barely even commits to his own winner predictions.

Sorry about that time in the bathroom. Next time I’ll take it easy on you so maybe you can at least walk to your car. I’ve heard if you grab the hand bar in the stall it goes a lot smoother. Just what I’ve heard though. Can’t prove it. And yes. I have fun with anything I write. People get tired of the same old x’s and o’s crap. Just good old fashion bitching.

But great site here and makes sense to have a site like this since most cowboy fans are gay and this site makes it easy for us to meet other gay cowboy fans in other places than the men’s bathrooms at the stadium. I can barely walk leaving cowboys game. Overall though great stuff and I hope to keep reading your posts.

I nearly vomited when reading the article someone wrote on josh Brent. You should give a quick clinic to the other pieces of shit on this site on how to do the things that all us cowboy fans are good at and proud of- watching football, evaluating football, writing about football, and picking up men.

Thelma I would slap (possibly rape) you for using Pitman in the same sentence with cowboys legends Haley, White, and Ware. Are you getting Pittman confused with someone?

I think the top four defensive ends in dc history will be haley, white, pittman, and ware. I heard Jerry was considering KP for the ring of honor this year.

In fact, Pittman said he thinks media criticism, not his poor play is what swayed Jones in the end.

The team gambled that they could move down into the second round and still select Tony Brackens, while changing a seventh round selection into a third. The Jacksonville Jaguars ended up selecting Brackens and the Cowboys still needing a defensive end, drafted Kavika Pittman in the second round. He was originally seen as a project, with the plan of eventually replacing Shante Carver.
As a rookie he contributed in special teams recording 17 tackles (third on the team). He was a backup defensive end until earning a starter position in 1998, playing opposite to Greg Ellis and finishing with 6 sacks (led the team), 16 quarterback pressures (third on the team), 59 tackles, 7 passes defensed, 2 fumble recoveries and a forced fumble.
The next year he started all 16 games and registered a career-high 74 tackles, 3 sacks, 21 quarterback pressures (second on the team) and 10 pass defensed (led the team). After his rookie contract ended, the team didn’t resign him because of salary cap constraints. Will not resigning Pitman be looked at as one of the biggest blunders in Cowboy history?

You think the cowboys will ever bring back the glory days of the 90s? We were the last real dynasty and I’d love to go through those good times again. This is a great site with a lot of writers that bleed blue.

Worth.  I think you’ve put a lot of pressure on a guy to try to be the next Alvin Harper.  Yet he seems to have the tools to do this.  I am going to keep your ever optimistic view on him.   What kind of dog do you have?

Terrance is a tall vertical red zone target who can go up and get the ball. Eats up space quickly against soft coverage. Shakes his man off the line and has enough speed to get a step down the sideline. Is a sideline threat with quick feet for his size and body control in the air, making his stop, fade, and comeback routes more effective. Tracks the ball and adjusts to it in the air, and shows the ability to stop and turn for the back-shoulder fade. Adjusts his route to make himself available to his scrambling quarterback, going deep or crossing into an opening. Willing, strong, and physical blocker on bubble screens and in the run game, throwing his body into defenders and sticking with blocks. His blocking is excellent also. I wouldn’t trust him anywhere near my wallet for obvious reasons, but as long as he catches the ball, keeps his mouth shut,  and produces he is going to be a special player.
