Charles Haley isn’t happy with the current crop of Dallas Cowboys.
The soon-to-be Ring of Honor member was in town last week for the ROH announcement, which coincided with Dallas’ alumni day, during which the team brings in former players. Head coach Jason Garrett said he hoped players would glean some wisdom from the nearly 50 players that showed up, but according to Haley, it didn’t really happen like that.
In a recent discussion with Norm Hitzges on 1310 The Ticket, Haley expressed his displeasure over the whole thing in no uncertain terms.
"Jason Garrett gave a heart-felt speech. He brought all these guys in the room who played, the alumni, for the young guys and the veteran guys on the Cowboys to talk to," Haley said, via the Dallas Morning News. "And he pleaded with them to ask them what did they do to be great. What did they do to help the Cowboys to win Super Bowls, to make the Cowboys one of the best franchises ever in the history of the NFL. You know how many guys went up to them to ask questions?
“I sat there and looked, they are so damn self-absorbed. They don't even see greatness surrounding them. All they're doing it sitting there counting numbers. There's going to be 55 guys, five or six practice squad guys. They count the positions to see if they are in."
