    We all know JJ can be an ass and has a huge ego. But Dallas isnt a team full of "me" players. Roy and Crayton are prima donna receivers, other than that, I fail to see these me first guys. We have unselfish players every where else. We have three RBs that split time, a deep WR rotation, we play all three TEs, we have a deep defensive line rotation, we have Brooking who only plays two downs, giving way to Bobby in nickel situations, a kickoff specialist, Scandrick plays a whole lot as well, at one time splitting a starting gig with Jenkins. And there are no problems at all. Everyone accepts their role and knows their place, it's a very healthy team mentality in Dallas these days.

    Ole Roy is just being Roy, he did this in Detroit as well but Dallas is strong enough to not be ripped apart by one player running his mouth. That's obviously not Roy's intent either, he's just venting, that's just who he is. I dont like it but, they should have been expecting this when they traded for him. But again, it's not a major problem. This is a strong, tightly bound group we have here.

    Also, the original argument had nothing to do with being called "America's team" or the overrating of Dallas' talent the last few years. Some people just like to hate on Dallas without knowing all the facts.

      TO & Don't Call Me Pacman are gone, this is a very good team whose offense is clicking on all cylinders now, no Romo INTs in 3 games, 2nd in the NFL in total yds, 1st in the league in converting 3rd downs, not too shabby.

      Dallas has nada to be ashamed of for having better talent player for player than any team in the NFC not located in the Pelican State.
      The only team more talented in the NFC is the Saints? I would not even consider Dallas's talent over the Eagles, Vikings and Giants. And I highly doubt 90% of teams are envious of the Cowboys, there are more than 10% of teams that are better than them (you do know that 10% is roughly 3 teams?).

        this is one of the most hilarious posts I've read in a long time. my word.

        see, there's disagreeing with valid points and being smart about it like MOTH, and then...there's this

          The truth hurts and Harbaugh was right. The only hope we have is that Stephen seems to be more level headed and increasingly has more influence on decision making.

          NFL Networks pre game show is pretty good but the only reason I watch is to see the beautiful Stacy Dales.

            This probably has more effect on my fantasy team then it does the Eagles/Cowboys game but, Westbrook has been ruled out.

              Odd that you say he is right but, post an article in another thread that completely disagrees with him.

              Anyway, if Harbaugh is talking in anyway about today's Cowboys. Then he has no idea what the hell he is talking about.

                  And those players would be?

                    Dudeeeeeee, I'm screwed. haha. No Westbrook, probably no Bryant, Boldin is all banged up. My top receiver has a bye, as do my other RBs. So I'm going in with Leonard freaking Weaver as my lone RB. Awesome. I hate 20 man leagues sometimes.

                    I'm also starting special teams sensation, Sam Hurd, also. I love my boy Sammy but, I need to hope for like 10 ST tackles or for him to score on his two opportunities per game.

                        I posted the article to point out that in the past we won with role players and had great chemistry.

                          As opposed to what? What is wrong with the team we have right now? Absolutely nothing. Again, they all know their roles and accept them. They play with a team oriented style, we have rather deep rotations and unselfish players.

                          In the past, Dallas also spent a lot of money en route to winning those championships. Our current team has been built up slowly and have grown up together. They've gelled as a unit and are not all Me players like people are suggesting or our for #1, so to speak.

                          The argument, is that Harbaugh still thinks the current Cowboys are what is wrong with the NFL and that is completely false.

                            I agree with you moth. I was talking about the last few years when we signed guys like Pacman Tank and TO. I love the team we have currently.

                              K, just making sure. Because, the article even goes into Harbaugh's intent with the comments. My point was, that if he still thinks our current team is a problem, then he is talking out of his ass and is very ill-informed.

                                I said Harbaugh was right because he was asked about the Eagles dominance over the Cowboys in this decade. Needless to say Jerry has made a lot of questionable signings/trades during that time frame.
