During an interview with NFL Network’s Total Access on Tuesday, Rolle was asked to give an assessment of his NFC East competitors. He saved the best for the Dallas Cowboys, whom he described as a “good team” that’s missing pieces. Oh, and those pieces? They’re not the players.
“The Dallas Cowboys are a good team,” Rolle said. “I think they’re a good team. I think maybe they’re missing a couple pieces of the puzzle, but I don’t think the pieces they’re missing are actually the players.”
Despite taking an obvious shot at Dallas’ coaches and/or front office, Rolle still thinks the Cowboys will be competitive.
“They’re always contenders, they’re always right there in the mix, and I’m looking forward to meeting those guys twice a year.”
We don’t know if Rolle was talking about head coach Jason Garrett, owner/GM Jerry Jones, someone else, or both with his comments, but he is not alone in his thoughts.
Jones recently indicated that Bill Callahan will take over play-calling duties for Dallas from Garrett, who has disappointed as a head coach. And Jones has been so bad building the team he even admitted last year that he would have fired himself as GM if he weren’t also the team owner.
This is generally the sort of comment that would fire up Cowboys fans, but I really don’t know too many who would disagree with Rolle. He’s on the mark saying that Dallas doesn’t have the right pieces in place.
