The Dallas media and the national media have been down on the Dallas Cowboys for months. Wade Phillips is ridiculed at every turn and Jerry is being cast as a younger version of Al Davis. Anonymous sources seem to be the basis for nearly every report by the media. I mentioned in a post a few weeks ago that the Cowboys need to just cut all ties with the media until training camp. Nothing anyone can say is going to change the current perception of this team. I applaud Jerry Jones for stopping all communication between the coaches and the media.
Some say that the move further undermines the authority of Wade Phillips but who are they trying to fool? The media has already gone out of their way to make Wade Phillips out to be Jerry's lapdog anyway. I don't disagree that Wade Phillips needs to show more fire and instill some discipline, but anything he says at this point is only going to be laughed at and mocked by the media.
My message to the media is this: you reap what you sow. I don't want to hear your complaints about a lack of access to the coaches after the last few months of Cowboys bashing that has been going on. Keep writing whatever you want and attribute your stories to "anonymous sources" but I hope you realize that some of us see right through you.
