I live in Atlanta, Ga and I have quite the commute every morning to work. I was listening to the local Atlanta sports radio station, 92.9 The Game and they were having a segment about the Falcons. The point they were making in regards to the Falcons was that there aren't enough "big program" type of guys on the roster. They dont have many players from the big college conferences i.e. the SEC, BIG TEN, etc.
The host of the show then mentioned a conversation that he has had with Warren Sapp in the past in regards to the Dallas Cowboys. The host said that Warren Sapp made the point that with all the talent that the Dallas Cowboys have had on the team over the years, the Cowboys don't have any winners. There are no core players that have been on the big stage and won anything. Tony Romo- Easten Illinois, Miles Austin- Monmouth University, Demarcus Ware- Troy University. Jason Witten went to the University of Tennessee but Im not sure if they ever won a Conference Championship.
I never really thought of this fact. The Cowboys have not had a core player from a big college program that has ever won anything. The point being, do any of the Cowboys' players know how to win the big games?
I just thought it was an interesting point....
