Deion Sanders is like Dallas Cowboys fans everywhere — fed up with the Cowboys.
“Y’all getting on my nerves,” Sanders said in an Instagram video. “This is the reason why. You ran Jason Garrett out of town last year. You said it was his fault, but I see the same old stuff going on that I saw then. Lack of effort, lack of discipline, no hustle, no dawgs… You ain’t the only team in the league that folks heard of, but it seems like when Dak left, your heart went with it.”
This has been a disaster of a season for America’s Team. The Cowboys were expected to run away with the easy NFC East. Instead, they’ve turned into the division’s biggest problem child, a shining example of how quickly things can change from bad to worse.
Some of that undoubtedly can be attributed to the loss of starting quarterback Dak Prescott. But there are other reasons, Sanders says. And he specifically mentioned (gasp) running back Ezekiel Elliott.
“Zeke, I love you,” Sanders said. “You know I love you, but they’re starting to talk. They want to know, are you up, or are you down? … Are you on your upside or your downside? They’re starting to talk. I feel as though you’ve still got it. It’s time for you to look inside yourself to see what’s in there right now because what’s been transpiring the last two weeks, my brother, ain’t you.”
Sanders played for the Cowboys from 1995-99 in what really were the final productive years of a decorated career. Now, he’s the new head coach at Jackson State. He is a man known for his passion and inspirational football talks.
And the 2-6 Cowboys could probably use lots of both.
