Pardon me?

Personally, I like Michael Wilbon more than Tony Kornheiser on Pardon the Interruption. There is just one thing that Wilbon has been saying for the past few weeks that has been irritating me. That is "the Cowboys are running their mouths, and haven't won anything." He hasn't said it a bunch of times, but probably 4-5 times the past month or so.

I agree with haven't won anything part. The Cowboys haven't won a playoff game in over a decade. It's the running the the mouth part that bothers me. The sports radio station I listen to is the flagship of the Cowboys. I read and hear damn near everything said about the Cowboys. Even the boring ass Wade Phillips press conferences everyday. I don't hear anyone really running their mouth about how great they are, or going to beat everyone.

The only person who did was Patrick Crayton after the Patriot game saying how if the Patriots made it to the Super Bowl the Cowboys would beat them then. What a shock a wide receiver running his mouth. If Terry Glenn was healthy he would be the fourth option in the passing game. Who gives a crap what he has to say? I don't and I root for the Cowboys.

Outside of that knucklehead I haven't heard anything outrageous being said by anyone on the team, and that includes the blowhard Terrell Owens. I don't know what Michael Wilbon is talking about.


  1. Eh, it's their job to run their mouths, talk loudly and attempt to stir things up. Otherwise, there'd be no reason to watch them.

    Sportswriters are very annoying, IMO.

  2. Yeah, I know, but there are enough real things going on in sports, he doesn't need to complain about something that isn't happening.

  3. I can't stand when commentators get on soapboxes and beat a point down forever. Tim McCarver does this all the time and it ruins any game I happen to be watching.
