Are Cowboys fans the worst..?

Living in the New England area I am surrounded by Patriots fans and nearly all of them hate the Dallas Cowboys.  When I ask most of them why, the number one answer is, “because of their fans.”   I pry a little deeper and find out that most of them are of the opinion that we, as Cowboys fans, are over reactive and obnoxious about it.   As I read through many of the recent posts I have to wonder, are they right?

 

Collectively it looks like Cowboys nation, (at least as it represented on here) would like to get rid of, T.O., Tony Romo, Roy Williams, (the receiver) Roy Williams, (the safety), Flozell Adams, Leonard Davis, Marion Barber & the entire coaching staff.   Every one of these players has been a pro bowler recently and most of the coaches were well thought of at one time or another.  I certainly do not exclude myself from this as I have been highly critical of the coaching staff and have been calling for their heads all season. 

Maybe all of us are…. Wrong.  

 

I know I had Philadelphia and Arizona written off from Super Bowl contention about a month ago and I’m sure I’m not alone on this.  I definitely knew for certain that San Diego would never be alive in the second round of the playoffs back when they were 4-8.  

 

Truth is many teams have won championships over the years in a huge variety of ways.  Some ran, some passed, some played defense and some excelled at all three.   Some players won champions early in their careers like Aikman and Brady; some won titles late in their careers like Elway and others won Super Bowls though out like Montana.     

 

As I think about it I’m of the opinion that ALL fans of professional sports are over reactive and obnoxious when it comes to their favorite teams.  And while it may be annoying it also is a sign of great passion which in my book is a positive. 

 

So what do you think Cowboys nation?    Could we all take a deep breath and except that we might have to give this team, as it looks right now, including the coaching staff, (sigh) another chance.  Perhaps a relatively injury free season will produce much better results.
