At some point, Cowboys organization has to get fed up with mediocrity

Another season has gone by and yet again the Dallas Cowboys have squandered what seemed like a great opportunity to make a serious run at a sixth Super Bowl title. The 2021 version of this team may have provided the organization’s best shot at winning since the 1990s. However, after 12 wins and ranking at the top of multiple categories on offense and defense, the Cowboys were sent home without a single postseason victory.

This season was the perfect time to strike while the iron is hot and go for the gusto. With 21 free agents to make decisions on, this team will look a lot different in 2022. That’s what makes the Cowboys falling so short in the playoffs this season tough to swallow.

The Cowboys had guys like Tony Romo, Jason Witten, Dez Bryant, and DeMarcus Ware come through the doors in the early-mid 2000s and the 2010s. Most recently it’s been Dak Prescott, Ezekiel Elliott, Amari Cooper, DeMarcus Lawrence, and…
