Missing Head Coach Tom Landry

As the losing continues at the Dallas Cowboys football organization, my mind has been drifting back to the days of Coach Tom Landry. As a kid and young man I watched as Landry not only brought winning to the Dallas Cowboys organization, but he turned many great players into role models for millions of young people.

The beginning of the end for the Cowboys began the day Jerry Jones fired head coach Tom Landry on television, without talking to him first. That was the first clue Cowboys fans had that the future of 'Americas Team' would not be as bright as it's past.

Fast forward till today and look at what has happened to the winning ways of the Dallas Cowboys. While it is easy for Cowboys fans to point fingers of blame at the various players and the coaching staff, the sad truth is the demise of the team began the day Jerry Jones purchased the team.
