    Listen.. Jerry sucks. But it doesn't mean he can't stumble into a good situation like he did with Jimmy Johnson again.

    He's just gotta quit hiring guys that aren't ready for this kind of job.

    A guy like Sean Payton is out there and he laughs at the thought of paying the guy 8 mill a year. He needs to value coaching more instead of what Larry Lacewell and Barry Switzer think.

    "Soft" is used quite often to describe people that can't function under stress in my region of the country. Of course, you also have physicsl softness. A very intelligent person can seem dumb in certain regions of the country due to their lack of knowledge about local word usage.

    So in Troy Aikman, Michael Irvin, Emmitt Smith,and Nate Newtons careers, they only had that attitude 3 of the years they played.

    Right Nate?

    Well, why didn't they?

    The reality is if they could have gotten 1-2 more wins, they would have. They didn't so they couldn't.

    The priorities of the GM needs to change. There is no doubt about it. Coaching is one area that he needs to take a look at, along with the usual such as the trenches. I think his priorities not only need to change, but have to change if this team has any hope to be regular Super Bowl contenders. Having a location to buy women's underwear at Cowboys Stadium should take a back seat to trench play or safety play. On second thought, I am sure that panties and bras would be much more important to me than a OG if I wore and needed them. Jerry gives us what we need (underwear), not what we want ( a winning team). He is considerate.

    I think you made your point. You know much more about the attitude of Super Bowl winning teams than players that actually played on those teams.

    It seems like there are people, .. yes more than one, .. in this thread that are trying to imply that attitude does not play a part with football teams, and in football games.

    When do players criticize their head coaches unless they're in and out-and-out dispute with them?

    The above quote goes to motive. What motive does Sean Lee have to say that about Jason Garrett? Maybe he believes it honestly. But maybe it's because JG is his coach and he has to say such a thing.

    I would ask, "What motive doest Nat Newton have to question the Cowboys' attitude?"

    Other than he desperately wants the Cowboys to win, I don't see a questionable motivation on behalf of Newton.

    See the difference?

    Which, of course, means the most talented team should always win the Super Bowl. Yep, that always happens. ;)

    we are a weak minded team, easily bullied and lack leaders. Been the same for years.

    :laugh2:Are you trolling? You don't have to be a pro to know they could have won ONE more game. You don't have to be a pro to know if we made the FG against the Ravens, we win. You don't have to be a pro to know if Dez didn't have a finger out, we win. Some people really need to get over the words of 90's player. It's not gospel...

    I just asked a question ...... and used Nate's reasoning to come to a conclusion.

    You asked a question to discredit a player that knows what a Super Bowl winning team's attitude should be. By the reasoning of your question, a team is only good in Super Bowl winning years. It was a loaded, agenda-driven question.

    Then how many years did Nate and his teammates have this attitude he is talking about?

    Not hard to discredit if he says something as stupid as the TC is claiming he did.

    All this theorizing and speculation and differing opinions by ex-players,long-time fans and new fans as to why this team is in the state it's in is just that: opinions and speculation. Nate doesn't know any better than the rest of us what's going to happen next season or the one after that and so on.That's why they play the games. How profound, I know.

    Weak minded teams quit and lay down when things don't appear to be going their way. How can you possibly say this team was weak minded in 2012 & leaders didn't emerge throughout the season from both players & coaches? I believe Sean Lee is a natural leader & coaches up every player to make them better & Tony Romo has developed into a pretty darn good leader in the vocal sense the past 2-3 years, as has Jason Witten. Most importantly, Jason Garrett's leadership appears to be his biggest strength. So I would probably retract that comment of yours. I am in no way a pom pom pumper, but I do see plenty of leadership among this team.

    If there is such a thing as "attitude" it's apparently completely fleeting and unpredictable to the point where it's meaningless to account for in any pragmatic way.

    What happened to the Giants "attitude" from last year? Just magically disappear? Nate's Cowboys 1996 had "attitude" and then suddenly lost "attitude" in 1997? Ravens had "attitude" this year, except they lost "attitude" when they had a 3 game losing streak in December, then magically found "attitude" again. This "attitude" attribute seems pretty random and chaotic to me. Seems like a results driven narrative people concoct to attempt to make sense of outcomes.

    Yes, because every player who says everything about the game of football is automatically correct. At all times.

    If Bailey makes the kick against Baltimore, we get the win.

    Not that I'm bashing Bailey, but when you're a few feet away from winning....yeah..you could have gotten 1 more win.

    I think Newton did not choose his words wisely. There's a difference between making the playoffs and being close to winning the Super Bowl. As far as the 'can do attitude'...a meaningless platitude.

    That's why Michael Jordan, Isiah Thomas, Kevin McHale and Matt Millen went on to become such great General Managers. They were ex-players (great ones at that), therefore they know more about the game than anyone else possibly could.
