After Another Disappointing Season, The Dallas Cowboys Are Cursed?
Another January, another playoff loss. The Dallas Cowboys fans have lived this year after year. Call it want you want. A curse? Bad luck? Or, just bad football in the month of January. Ask any Cowboys fan and whatever you call it, it's getting OLD! Could the Cowboys be cursed? There have been many articles written about it but it does make one think. Whether you believe in that stuff or not, It does make you think. Well, here are a few 'curse' theories that people have thrown out. .
According to this article from Chase...here are 5 cursed theories.
Curse #1 • THE CURSE OF ROWDY
What does Rowdy have do with anything. Well, it goes back to when he was introduced as a mascot. According to Chase's article
"Rowdy" was not introduced until 1996 after the Cowboys won Super Bowl XXX against the Steelers. Now a mascot causing a 27-year drought from the Super Bowl is kinda crazy, but is it? Dez Bryant's catch that was called a non-catch by officials in the 2014 NFC Divisional Game against the Green Bay Packers, and Tony Romo's botched hold on a field goal against the Seattle Seahawks in the NFC Wild Card Game in 2006, cursed by "Rowdy?"
Curse #2 • THE CURSE OF AT&T STADIUM
Apparently during the construction of AT&T Stadium, many people died during construction of it.
Maybe the 34 people on the construction crew that died during the building of the stadium, before they stopped reporting the number that is, or the neighborhoods of Arlington that were bull-dosed against the will of the families that grew up there could be a good reason for this curse.
Curse #3 • CURSE OF TOM LANDRY
Cowboys fans remember how tom Landry was fired.
but what gives this curse some legs is that the Cowboys have not been to the Super Bowl since Tom Landry passed away in 2000. Could Landry have put a curse on the team that was only activated upon his passing? It is possible.
Curse #4 • CURSE OF COWBOYS TEXAS STADIUM
The Cowboys lost their final game at Texas stadium.
The Ravens had posted a 5-11 record the season before so it is speculated that Jerry Jones thought the lowly Ravens would be a great final game in Texas Stadium when they could blow them out. That did not happen and the Cowboys lost 33-24 to the Ravens. That is when the curse began, on December 20, 2008, when Texas Stadium cursed the Cowboys to never win another Super Bowl until the team hosts the Washington Commanders now in the final game in AT&T Stadium, many years from now.
Curse #5 • CURSE OF JIMMY JOHNSON
Wait? The curse of Jimmy Johnson? But, he was inducted into the RING OF HONOR this year. Well, maybe it was a little too late.
Could this refusal to honor Jimmy Johnson be the curse that haunts the Cowboys? Could Jones' reluctance to honor Jimmy be a universal grudge that keeps the Cowboys from advancing past the Divisional round of the playoffs? Could it possibly be that Jerry needs to step away from decisions on the football team and give it over to a separate President and General Manager?
Well, he was inducted this year, but????? Same ending in the playoffs for the Cowboys! Do you believe the Cowboys are cursed?
