You can read the AP's take on Wednesday's Parcells press conference, here. Tony Romo also spoke to the press, and he got the memo from Parcells and followed the company line.
"We're almost coming in with the approach that this is a new season," Romo said. "We're going to forget everything that happened in the past and go forward and hopefully make a little five-game run here."
Romo even sounded like Parcells when he blamed the media for the impression the Cowboys are reeling.
"Every time we lose, it's 'We're not good enough.' Everyone is throwing in the towel," Romo said. "But this team has got a lot of resiliency. We've come back before. I have a feeling we're going to do it again."
On the other hand, Terence Newman apparently didn't have a private conversation with Parcells about what to say to the media.
"People need to just start playing and stop talking so much," he said. "It's a show-me league and talking is not going to do anything."
Newman didn't name names, but Jason Witten had a guess.
"I think that Terrell is a very outgoing person and he always says those things," Witten said. "Me personally, that doesn't bother me. But whenever you lose it's easy to get under people's skin and I think that's what happened."
T.O. might or might not have gotten under Terence Newman's skin, but he sure got under JJT's skin. I'm not sure what happened to JJT today, maybe it was the ribbing he took at the press conference, but he unloads in his latest column.
And don't think I'm alone.
The fans want you to shut up, based on the boos you received in Monday's loss. So do your teammates, considering their comments Wednesday. Lord knows Bill Parcells has wanted you to shut up since training camp.
The whining. The excuse-making. We're all tired of it. Rarely has a player generated so many statistics and so little impact.
See what happens when the Cowboys don't win, it becomes Looney Tunes out at Valley Ranch.
Todd Archer documents a team starting to come apart at the seams. Can the iron-hand rule of Pollyanna Parcells save them?
Until this week.
Fissures in team chemistry have appeared with one game to go, and the Cowboys' best chance to win the NFC East is gone thanks to Monday's 23-7 loss to Philadelphia.
After that game, Owens reiterated his wish for more passes his way, Terry Glenn called out the game plan, the defenders wondered aloud what has gone wrong with their unit, and owner and general manager Jerry Jones used the words "disgusted" and "pitiful" to describe what he had seen.
And then there was Newman, who called out somebody, we're still trying to decide if it was Owens.
OK, how about some actual on the field stuff. The run game has been suffering recently. Julius Jones and company, including the line and MB3, will need to become a force if we have any hope in the playoffs.
Part of the running game's low totals can be attributed to opportunities. Jones and Barber had 16 combined carries, the second-lowest number of the season behind their 13 carries in a 42-17 loss to the Saints.
The defense needs to help out, too. They gave up four 3rd down conversions on the Eagles very first drive of the game.
Also, Tony Romo has got to take better care of the ball. And he knows it.
Romo finished with a season-low 45.5 passer rating after throwing for a nine-start low142 yards, with one touchdown and two interceptions. Parcells didn't elaborate, but said he spoke with Romo on Wednesday and thinks he "understands what I want from him now, a little more clearly maybe than he did up to this point."
We love ya, Romo, but you got to quit throwing interceptions at crucial times.
Jason Witten gives Romo a little cover by putting some of the blame on the rest of the team.
