Please bear with me while I am working through the kinks, I hope you will enjoy the changes and continue to visit Kody’s Sports Korner.
They say “an ugly win, is still a win”, while this may hold true, Cowboys fans have become accustomed to the “ugly win”. While it seems to be more common to see the Cowboys win a game they are supposed to in ugly fashion, a win is still a win. And take into account the Cowboys have won back-to-back games for the second time this season. The last time this happened was back in October with wins over Philadelphia and Washington.
With four games to go and sole possession of first place in the division, The Cowboys control their own destiny heading into the home stretch of the season. Each of the last four games look winnable, but most fans will have some reservations about being excited for the final games. Because whenever the cowboys look like they should win a game, they find a way to lose.
At the beginning of the season, both of the Dallas area college teams were on two different paths. One team was going to be a team on the rise, and the other was trying to dig itself out of the basement and start their climb for the future. Each team had their own goals in mind, and one common goal was getting to a bowl game. But as the season has moved along, it looks like these two teams have traded roles. Continue reading
The last time the Connecticut Huskies visited the Hilltop was in 1989 and were facing an SMU team coming off the 2 year hiatus brought on by the death penalty. While nobody at that time thought SMU would win that game, it has gone down in Mustangs history as the “miracle on Mockingbird”. An exciting 31-30 victory was the start of a comeback from NCAA sanctions. Flash forward to this year and the Huskies are making their second trip to SMU. Continue reading
On Sunday the cameras caught Dez Bryant in a very peculiar situation with the way he was acting on the sidelines. From afar, it looked like he was in melt down mode not once but twice and he was getting in the faces of the wrong people. This has also become talk radio fodder because of what he did.
Dez is one of the rare cases in which he has all the talent and could be a very deadly weapon for the Cowboys offense. But whether it is being young, or just immature, he tends to throw tantrums when he doesn’t feel like he is being targeted enough. Maybe he is still too young to know when to keep his mouth shut and when to let loose and try to fire the team up. It would benefit him to have a sit down with Michael Irvin about that difference.
Sunday’s instances looked more like a tantrum and could potentially be a bigger issue than most fans realize. The Cowboys brass needs to quit making excuses and try to reel him in before he turns into the type of player to tears a team apart and ruins a locker room.
You can see Dez has all of the talent, and could be one of the best receivers in the league for years to come. But with guys like Terrell Owens and Randy Moss before him, he needs to reel in his emotions and just go to work. Because both of those guys had the ability to do great things unfortunately they are remembered for things other than their play on the field. This is the fate Dez is headed for if he doesn’t change the way he acts.
Dez Bryant can yell, hoot and holler about things in the locker room away from the cameras and could use that to be a “rah rah” guy who fires the team up. But every time he is seen throwing tantrums like he did on Sunday will only help feed the “childish” mentality the national media has of him. To change this perception, it is time for Dez to just shut up and play.
