Gosselin: Fear of greatness has Cowboys clinging to the status quo

Gosselin: Fear of greatness has Cowboys clinging to the status quo Gosselin: "The Cowboys have a fear of the unknown. I don’t think they have the confidence in their personnel department to go out and find a player that will upgrade a position. They love the status quo. They know what they’ve got with Anthony Spencer. They franchised him, extended (Orlando) Scandrick and extended (Gerald) Sensabaugh. They’re okay because they know what these guys can do. If they leave, they have to find somebody better, and they don’t have the confidence to do that so what they do is they keep the status quo, and the status quo is not good enough." They are afraid to try. They are afraid of their own ability to add talent. But, its not a fear of championships. Its a plain old fashioned fear of failure. Jerry knows deep down he can't get top talent and build top teams like the top pro GMs. So, he hangs on to mediocrity. It keeps him with fans in the stands (yes, that is a slam on you silly koolaid drinkers). And that allows Jerry to keep doing what he values more than playoff success - Jerry playing GM. Fear of losing the ability to play GM is what keeps Jerry doing what he is doing. Let us not be overly charitable and say he fears championships. He fears losing so much that he might be compelled to get a real GM and quit playing GM.
