Whenever Super Bowl time comes around and NFL dignitaries are all gathered in one central place, you tend to hear about how bad the Dallas Cowboys are from their past legends, most notably Troy Aikman, Michael Irvin and Emmitt Smith — the famed "Triplets".
So far this week, we've heard from all three about various things regarding the Cowboys, and other NFL topics, but Smith had some interesting comments this week about the state of the current Cowboys and how frustrated he's been by it.
Smith, who is the NFL's all-time leading rusher, former Super Bowl MVP and three-time Super Bowl champ, knows a lot about success, but as proven by his brief stint as an ESPN analyst, he knows little about trying to get a point across.
Smith went on and on with 92.1 FM, an East Texas ESPN radio affiliate, about how the Cowboys have failed to capitalize on their talent and are an overall frustration, but said there's no blame on Cowboys owner/GM Jerry Jones.
“I think it’s very wrong, because at the end of the day, Jerry Jones is an owner and he has the right to do whatever he wants to do with that ballclub,” Smith told the station.
OK, let that sink in real quick. Now laugh at Emmitt.
Whatever it is that Jones wants to do with his team is obviously having a direct effect on the product that's on the field.
God love ya, Emmitt. You were a great football player and a true warrior, but there's a reason you're not in the TV game anymore.
