Dallas Cowboys owner/GM/president Jerry Jones continues to top himself with verbal winners. During his radio show on the G Bag Nation on 105.3 The Fan on Friday morning, Jerry said this:
"We've come a lot closer to coming to the Super Bowl with (Tony) Romo than we've been given credit for."
It would appear that Jerry has come down with a bad case of The Wade Phillips.
Let's take a look at just how close the Dallas Cowboys have come to that Super Bowl with Tony Romo since he took over as the starter since 2006.
'06: Wildcard playoff loss at Seattle. Just needed three wins to reach the Super Bowl. Playoff record: 0-1.
'07: Divisional home playoff loss against New York Giants. Only two wins shy from Super Bowl. Playoff record: 0-1
'08: No playoffs.
'09: Divisional playoff loss at Minnesota. Two wins shy of Super Bowl. Playoff record: 1-1
'10: No playoffs.
'11: No playoffs.
'12: No playoffs.
'13: No playoffs.
Dallas Cowboys & Tony Romo playoff record: 1-3, no NFC title games.
The team that should have made it, or genuinely been close, was the 2007 team but the head coach Wade Phillips couldn't keep his group mentally there. The rest haven't been close.
