Gallowaste is back. http://blogs.dfw.com/galloway_and_hate/cowboys/index.html Leave Greg Ellis alone From Galloway ... Been on vacation, OK? And been lazy, too. Some things never change. But it's a new blogging season, and here we go: My new favorite Cowboy is one of my old favorite Cowboys. Greg Ellis. As you know, he's now a linebacker. I hope it works. Apparently, there has been some positive progress for Ellis at linebacker out in Oxnard. And I will see for myself when I show up in California next week. But how did one of the best guys ever to wear the uniform, and one of the hardest-working players, suddenly become a media rip-job target? Damn, that makes me mad. Ellis was hot, and rightfully so, that at age 31, he was being told by Bill Parcells to move from defensive end to linebacker. If Ellis wasn't a size-wise fit for Parcells at end in the 3-4, then Big Bill should have done with him what he did with La'Roi Glover. Let him walk. Let him go to another team. Instead, Parcells dropped the hammer on Ellis. He wouldn't be traded, and there was no guarantee he would play. Big Bill ordered him to move to linebacker, or else. Ellis protested all spring and summer. And the local media seemed to be mad at Ellis, not Parcells. I disagree. Parcells was wrong to do this to a classy veteran. And my opinion on that won't change even if Ellis handles the switch to linebacker. Which I hope he does.
