Come Monday...COWBOYS SUCK!!!

“Come Monday…” is a weekly series that will involve a review of, or commentary about,  websites, movies, documentaries, television shows, sports, music, and whatever else may tickle my fancy at the time.  Be assured that these reviews will be generally positive, as in accordance to the Jimmy Buffett song “Come Monday.”  This is subject to change, however.  In fact, I would be most derelict in my duties to neglect going on a rant every once in a while.  For rants promote change, and change can be good—right?  Therefore, since good is generally considered as being a positive force in 99.3% of the parallel universes that I am aware of, even a rant could be considered as being something positive, and a genuine hissy-fit would be even better (so I’m told).

Just in case you cannot tell from the image, I am referring to my beloved [Dallas Cowboys]—not cowboys in general.  For not only did they fail to make the NFL playoffs again, they managed to do so by getting humiliated by the hated (so to speak) [New York Football Giants] on [Sunday Night Football], 31-14.

No, that is not quite right.  For most of the players on the current Cowboys roster don’t have enough sense to be humiliated—starting with [Rob Ryan], the defensive coordinator.

Oh yeah, this was another season where expectations were sky-high.  For with the addition of Rob Ryan to the staff, the Cowboys defense would surely rival the offense as being the real reason for another glorious [Super Bowl] victory.

Do you not find it curious that after [Jerry Jones] fired [Wade Phillips] as the head coach of the Cowboys around the middle of last season, he became the defensive coordinator of the [Houston Texans], and the Texans ended the regular season with the [second highest rated defense] in the entire league?  I do.

Hey, wasn’t the Cowboys’ Ryan supposed to be a defensive genius?  Quite obviously, he really can “talk” as good of a game as his [brother] and [father], despite being the quiet one of the three.

Alas, I suppose I should be grateful.  For the agony has ended much sooner than later, and I can now honestly cheer for the [Green Bay Packers] to repeat as Super Bowl champions.

Talk about a class act.  They are, with a great sense-of-humor, as well.

  1. Here's hoping the Cowboys have a better 2012, at least you guys have the best cheerleaders right? I hear on the grapevine that London may have a permanent NFL franchise within the next 2 years, what are your thoughts on that?

    Happy New Year

  2. Thanks for stopping by again, my dear Ryan!!! To be quite honest, I don't know what to think about the NFL attempting to establish a more permanent beachhead in London. For NFL Europe wasn't all that well received, and in some respects, it featured a more entertaining style of play than what can be often seen on a given Sunday here. Take 7-3 being the final score between Kansas City and Denver yesterday. Of course, with you soccer hooligans wetting the bed over a 1-0 victory...

  3. Sorry to hear that your Cowboys let you down. Since I'm not a fan of football I can't say much more than that

  4. Soccer or its correct name football is a great game Jerry, you should get to a match. I've been to plenty of 0-0 draws which have been fantastic entertainment. Hey it could be worse, we could be talking cricket!! Those guys play for 5 days straight and it usually ends up in a tie.

    Check out the happy hooligans of Wembley on youtube, just type 'Scotland at wembley 1977' My uncle still has the penalty spot in his backyard.

  5. Thanks for stopping by again, my dear Ann!!! I can't imagine life in this world without football, but at times like this, I would like to.

  6. Thanks for stopping by again, my dear Ryan!!! Sorry, my wife and I both love really offensive games, like Baylor beating Washington 67-56 in the Alamo Bowl.

  7. Thanks for stopping by again, my dear Sandie!!! I hope you-all have a very Happy New Year!

  8. Git along, little doggies...

    Cowboys are cool!

  9. Thanks for stopping by again, my dear TRFKALD!!! Nope, not all of them--neither on nor off of the gridiron.
