    You knew they were wanting in the talent department, but at least you got a 100% effort every game.

    With this bunch of inconsistant underacheivers you never know what to expect.

    They get your hopes up sky high with the win over the Giants,

    then play terrible the next 3 games.

    Frustrating Indeed !!!

    Campo was a horrible coach at the end. His guys were consistant alright, consistant unprepared, lost and badly beaten on a regular basis.

    I think they played up to their level of talent.

    They just did not have much in that department.

    The players they did have seemed to play with desire and full effort.

    Campo was not going to outcoach the other team, but he did seem to be able to motivate.

    Also appreciated a coach that could show a little passion on the sideline.

    Why? Because they were guaranteed a better draft pick?

    I don't know , I just appreciate a team fighting hard and playing up to their potential , even if they are untalented and not very good.

    Watching this current team underperform , when you know they have the abilty to play much better is just hard for me to take.

    Campo was coaching this secondary since 2008. That is when our secondary got down-right atrocious, with everybody missing assignments. He was here last year as well.

    Well I dont know if you can totally blame Dave Campo. Look at the talent the GM gave him to work with. Those were the drunk Jerry Jones years. He kept his beer googles on so he could not see the talent he put on the field.

    With Clint Storner, Ryan, Chad Hutchison as your QB what would one expect.... the GM was looking for QB's on the Major League Baseball's farm teams...something totally wrong with the that.

    I cant blame Campo...I want to but after almost 20 years of Jerry Jones I now know where the fault lays.... Jerry Jones HAS destroyed the COWBOYS franchise...all for his egotistic money grabbing ideals...The COWBOYS have never been his #1 priority even today....the COWBOYS are just a means at which to improve his bottom line...


    Jason Garrett can not produce any better results with a highly improved talent pool.

    The game had passed campo buy the moment teams started running multi wr sets. His thing was smoke and mirrors, hiding deficencies. In the end he fooled no one. I dont know how many times deion would break down our corners on the NFL network and point out 5 things they were doing wrong . Basic stuff that they should have been taught. This year we actually have the wrs playing infront of our dbs vs the line up 7 yards back and race them towards the endzone.

    Don't miss him at all as secondary coach and glad that he is gone.

    But as headcoach his teams appeared more fired up and motivated than this bunch.

    Our headcoach does not appear to have any passion and our team seems to be following the leader.
