Cris Carter unloads on the Dallas Cowboys, calls them "super sorry"

Cris Carter unloaded on the Dallas Cowboys during Monday Night Countdown.

The Cowboys blew a 23-point lead and lost to the Packers 37-36 to move to 7-7. Late in the game, Joe Buck said, “The Cowboys have gone away from their running game, which is impossible to explain.”

Buck also said, “This is going to go down as one of the worst defeats in the history of the Dallas Cowboys. I go back to play-calling offense, not running the ball when they had the lead when Green Bay showed they couldn’t stop the run.”

After the game, Jerry Jones, who recently backed his head coach, made an utterly amazing statement. Jones said, "I was firm for one night (about Garrett) at that time and that doesn't call for me having to be firm every morning I get up."

This evening, Carter said, “Nothing is going to change in Dallas.  I don’t know why we’re pondering like something…

Chris Berman interjected, “Because they’re Dallas.”

Carter said, “Well, let me tell you what they are. They’re like when you go through the drive-thru and say you want a No. 2 and they ask you if you want it jumbo-sized or super-sized.  They (the Cowboys) are super sorry, Boom.  I’m talking about sorry. 

“They are a sorry football team; they are a sorry outfit and I don’t even know why we have great expectations for them.  Like they are sorry.  Not sorry like ‘I’m sorry I talked to you that way.’ Sorry as in performance.  And I don’t’ expect it to change and I don’t expect it to get any better.  I don’t expect Jerry to come up with any… This is what Jerry is doing right now.  It’s going to be this way for a long time.”

Keyshawn believes Jason Garrett isn’t the right man for the job, adding that the head coach next to be an authoritative person like Parcells was.

Carter said, “Jerry Jones is not hiring no one who tells him what to do. Call him.”

The crazy part is that at 7-7, the Cowboys still control their own destiny to get into the playoffs.  It could come down the final week of the regular season when Dallas plays Philadelphia.
