Colin Cowherd: “I was watching 'Hard Knocks' last night and they had a 3-minute drone shot going through the Cowboys’ facility. It was a PALACE and I’ve never seen anything like it. Then I thought ‘yeah, I have’, it’s called a COUNTRY CLUB. This is why the Cowboys are a soft football organization. Jerry Jones regularly overpays for ‘good’ players. You know who doesn’t? New England never does, Baltimore never does, Green Bay never does, ya know, those three teams who win a lot of playoff games. The Patriots were a 20-year dynasty and Belichick always made them feel like ‘we cannot afford anything other than the Marriott.’ The Dallas Cowboys are trust fund kids. They’ve never stayed at anything that’s not a Ritz Carlton. I watched that drone for the Cowboys and I’m like ‘YOU GOTTA BE KIDDING ME.’ Shiny, beautiful, wonderful, and they’re overpaying all their players. ‘Good’ players now get ‘great’ contracts. Since Barry Switzer left in the mid-‘90s they have three playoff wins. Mark Sanchez has more playoff wins. When I watched that drone I thought Jerry is enjoying his wealth -- good for him -- but keep it away from the players. You stay at the Ritz-Carlton for the weekend and it will take the edge off you real quick.” (Full Video Above)
Listen to Colin Cowherd explain why he thinks the Cowboys are coming off as ‘soft trust fund kids’ on the newest season of HBO’s ‘Hard Knocks’ television show, as Colin talks about how the now-viral 3-minute drone footage on Sunday’s episode showing off their luxurious facilities just proves how out of touch this team really is with WINNING.
Check out the video above as Colin details why he thinks Jerry Jones might be spoiling the Cowboys’ players too much, referring to the legendary boxer Marvin Hagler’s famed line of ‘It’s hard to get up and do work when you’re sleeping in silk pajamas.’
