Cowboys legend Troy Aikman says Dallas needs ‘complete overhaul’ of the organization
The Dallas Cowboys are not having a good season. America’s Team is now 3-5 on the year after losing to the Tennessee Titans on Monday Night Football, and now one of the franchise’s legendary players thinks it’s time to change everything.
Three-time Super Bowl champion and Cowboys icon, Troy Aikman, had some choice words for his former team on Tuesday. Aikman thinks it is time to overhaul the entire organization with the future looking bleak even with the young talent on the team, via Todd Archer of ESPN.
“Go through the list and this team, over a long period of time, has been what it’s been,” Aikman said Tuesday on 1310 The Ticket. “It hasn’t always mattered who the head coach has been. So to me, if you’re asking me, I’d say there has to be a complete overhaul of the entire organization.”
These comments from Aikman may be a shot at the team’s longtime general manager and owner, Jerry Jones. With the exception of impressive season two years ago in which the team locked up the top seed in the NFC, the Cowboys can’t seem to get back on track with Jason Garrett calling the shots on the sideline and Jones making moves in the front office.
Despite the team’s struggles with no signs of improvement, Jones has been reluctant part ways with Garrett. The owner seems determined to ride it out with Garrett, and that may remain the case for the rest of the season even if things continue to get worse in Dallas.
At 3-5, the Cowboys are in danger of missing the playoffs once again but believe or not; they’re still alive in the lowly NFC East division. The division-leading Washington Redskins are sitting at 5-3 with the defending Super Bowl champion Philadelphia Eagles (4-4) behind them followed by the Cowboys.
