The Season of Wade Ends...

At the beginning of the season, I wrote a long fanpost about how 2007 was the Season of Romo and how 2008 would be the Season of Wade in that Dallas would go only as far as Wade could lead them.

I've never been a supporter of Wade's, never really liked his approach and definitely never liked his performance. So, you could say I was jaded from the start.

But all told, while my football pain feels like a gunshot wound, how can any of us be that surprised at today's outcome? Dallas' lack of consistency and absence of grit and determination were evident in most of their 16 contests during the season. FANaticism blinds us and makes us believe things about our team that aren't real. For instance, we haven't really run the ball well this year. Did we think we would suddenly rise up against Philly? We haven't been a good pass blocking team this year (sorry Hudson, but your unit sucked big time all year). So were we supposed to find our cajones against Jim Johnson's blitz packages?

Come on, let's keep it real. Dallas, with the league's most talented roster, undeperformed in every area of the game except when it came to media headline domination. In that one area, Dallas was the champ.

At some point, this team and it's front office will make a commitment to one thing and one thing only; putting a product on the field that it's fans can re-commit to. That means no Hard Knocks, no camp cupcake, no more "aw shucks" approaches to the finer points of the game, no fringe free agent signings and no more of our players dominating the headlines unless it is a result of their high performance.

The first step in that direction?

This should be the last Season of Wade.
