The Dallas Cowboys just suffered a devastating loss to the Green Bay Packers, the second largest blown lead in team history. When owner Jerry Jones was asked about fans getting apathetic to the Cowboys' losing ways, ESPN reported on Dec. 18 that Jones said fans won't get apathetic when they get to see "shows" like that huge loss.
In what was an embarrassing loss, and one that left a sick feeling in many Cowboys' fans stomachs as the end of season doldrums are setting in, Jones somehow believes that Dallas fans get excited when a "show" like the Packers come-from-behind victory occurs.
Honestly, a loss like that makes some fans just want to shut off the Dallas Cowboys.
Jones has to be commended for admitting that he doesn't want to put on shows like that, and that he wants to win games and move on to win the next one, but the fact that he doesn't fear losing fans because they enjoy games like the Cowboys vs. Packers one seems to indicate he is disconnected from his team's own fans.
What would make a great show for the fans is an offense that is explosive and dominate. What would make a great show would be a defense that forces turnovers and wrecks havoc. A good show, for Dallas fans, is not one that includes refusing to run the ball when the team is leading by three touchdowns, throwing interceptions when the game is on the line, and a defense that can't stop a backup quarterback from shredding them.
A good show is winning games the team should win and making it to the playoffs. If the Dallas Cowboys have any more "shows" like the one against Green Bay, their season will end in two weeks.
