The Dallas Cowboys place in NFL history is secure; that was the case even before Jerry Jones bought the team in 1989. However, their recent lack of postseason success has been frustrating to most fans. Dallas, who holds a record of 6-4 this season, is coming off a 35-27 victory over Matt Patricia and the Detroit Lions.
This week, the Cowboys are preparing to face Patricia’s mentor, Bill Belichick, when they travel to Foxborough to play the New England Patriots.
On Wednesday, Jones thought it would be a good time to unveil these gems.
Considering the leash for Jason Garrett has been longer than expected, Jones’ inability to surround himself with the right head coach has been a commonality as of late.
In his defense, no one could have predicted Belichick would go on to win six Super Bowls with the Patriots. However, it does add salt to the wounds of Cowboys fans.
Since the year 2000, the first year in which Belichick was the head coach for the Patriots, the Cowboys have seen four coaches step into the spotlight: Dave Campo, Bill Parcells, Wade Phillips, and now Jason Garrett.
Would Belichick have won in Dallas? It’s impossible to tell now, but his track record speaks for itself.
