Texans Take Over Texas?
As a Cowboy fan I can see this unless things change with Jerry. Not sure if he cares. I still read the hometown paper, the Star-Telegram and this was an article that just came out. He isn't spot on everything but interesting none the less.
Talking to an active NFL player last week, he gave the following endorsement for a man who wants to be a head coach again.
The player said of this coach: "He has a great scheme, for one. It really makes sense. He has a great understanding for the players and for each position. He does a great job of putting guys in the right position so their talents can flourish.
"But he has a great gift for calling plays. He just feels a play. He will make three or four calls throughout a game and they are spot-on calls and they result in big plays for the game. He has been through it all and he has seen it all.
"When he makes a call, you have to believe it's going to work. That's a big difference. The way he coaches, too. He lets his assistant coaches coach as well. He just tells us, 'Make the plays on Sunday.'"
Forget Sean Payton. Where can Jerry Jones hire this unnamed super genius coach?
The player delivering the quotes was Houston Texans defensive back Glover Quin.
The coach he spoke so highly of is Houston Texans defensive coordinator Wade Phillips.
While Wade should never be a head coach again, his Texans are tied for the best record in the NFL.
Added to the list of Jerry headaches is that, for the first time since he bought the Cowboys, he feels sweat from the team from the city that made sweating fashionable..............
The first thing the Texans had to do to close some of this disparity in popularity was to at least win Houston.
"People here were definitely starving for this," Smith said. "A lot of people come to you and congratulate you on bringing back football to this city. They had a tough, hard deal with the Oilers. When they left, they broke a lot of hearts."
The next step will be to take Texas, which is something no pro football team from Houston has ever done, or even been close.
"The Cowboys have been around for a long time. A lot of people growing up are Cowboys fans and their parents were Cowboys fans," Glover said. "Sometimes, it would be hard to break that trend."
More like impossible.
Jerry has long since grown accustomed to the idea that his team won't win the NFC East, but if it does not reverse this current trend, he will be in danger of losing Texas, too
