Dallas Cowboys Training Camp ScatterBrain III
The Greatest Show On Earth, currently located under the BIG Tents in Oxnard, California, has entered the traditional stage known as the “dog days” of Training Camp. Since mundane and low profile scenarios are not allowed under the watchful eye of 24 hour Marketing Machine, Jerry Jones, the “dog and pony show” days of Training Camp 2015 are now upon us. Let’s see what’s happening:
- The Latent Head Coach in Jerry Jones feels the need to voice his concern over “every area” of the Dallas Cowboys after our beloved Pokes
performed worst than the Levi’s Stadium turf Sunday evening in San Francisco.
- The Levi’s Stadium Turf actually performed above expectations. Something tells me the NFL intervened.
- Maybe Jerry should be more worried over how many Cowboys Fans weren’t able to view the game through some convoluted NFL TV rights deal that squelched viewership. I can only imagine how many unhappy Cowboys Fans there were.
- Maybe someone should remind Coach Jones that one of the main purpose for pre-season games is to find out who can and cannot play NFL level Football. Sub-par performances by individual players and – yes – even teams as a whole are to be expected at times during these exhibitions.
- Or maybe Coach Jones needs to consult Hyper-Hype (I’ve never seen a bad 2015 Cowboys Player) Jon Gruden to revive his spirits.
- During this time of the year, defenses are usually ahead of the offenses, but it is looking as if the 2015 version of the Cowboys defense may be something other than the Achilles Heal it appeared to be last year.
- After listening to Coach Jones’ latest analysis of the Cowboys, Fans should be ecstatic to have Jason Garrett and Stephen Jones finally wielding some authority rather than Jerry’s magic wand that’s suffered a power outage for two decades.
- After watching so many backup QB’s in the league, most should be payed to not play. On second thought, that’s exactly what is happening when the starting QB’s sign huge contracts. And that’s a good thing!
- Tony Romo can play.
- Greg Hardy can play.
- Rod Marinelli can coach.
- Come to think of it, someone should remind the pundits and prognosticators, you know, the ones receiving remuneration for such activities, that this is the pre-season, not the regular season. Over analysis of a pre-season game can be mind numbing.
- The future is bright for 4th string QB Jameill Showers. After recording three tackles versus the 49ers, he might make the final cut as a tackling coach.
- It’s very difficult to imagine the Cowboys signing backup QB Brandon Wheedon after this year.
- At this point, it’s not too difficult to imagine the Cowboys using at least a 2nd round pick to draft a running back.
- Regardless of of the condition of the turf at Levi’s Stadium, now or then, here’s hoping the Cowboys make a return trip in February of 2016!
