First Thoughts

Barry Switzer

Barry Switzer (born October 5, 1937) is a former football coach, active in the college and professional ranks between 1962 and 1997. He has one of the highest winning percentages of any college football coach in history, and is one of only two head coaches to win both a college football national championship and a Super Bowl (the other being a rival college head coach Jimmy Johnson.)

BREAKING NEWS: Jerry Jones has invited Jimmie Johnson and Barry Switzer to the Cowboys Super Bowl game in 2015 vs Ravens
I believe it's because he hates jerry so much for getting rid of jimmy and for bringing in Barry switzer who he hates

Looks like we aren't going to Phoenix I say we hook up w/ Barry Switzer for SB AM blintzes anyway.
-Great article for OU fans Even with his head-coaching death rattle, Mack Brown was able to hand your school its biggest embarrassment since the 2013 graduating class. -We weren’t even really trying that hard. Seriously, the MVP was Case McCoy, who didn’t even joke about trying to go to the NFL. -It’s like you’re losing focus. You already lost to TCU, probably because Trevor Knight was too busy sexting Katy Perry. -Sure, we lost to BYU, but they have God on their side. You guys just have the Devil, or “Barry Switzer,” whatever he’s calling himself nowadays. -Face it, your Standards and Compliance office is about as reliable as Sam Bradford’s knees. What do the signs read at the OU Practice Facility? Give us your poor, your tired, your felonious position players with remaining eligibility? -From ISIS to the Russians, the news is full of troubling headlines and apocalyptic threats. Wait, sorry, you don’t follow the news, so let us contextualize. Imagine they were going to cancel “Mike an ...

Better late than never Coach . Happy belated Birhday
Happy Birthday to one of my favorite football people, Barry Switzer, age 77. Barry coached the Oklahoma Sooners for 16 years, with an amazing 157–29–4 record. a winning percentage of .837. He was the genius that created the famous Wishbone offense, which was the name of the game in the 70's and 80's. His Sooner teams won the National Championship in 1974,1975, and 1985. HIS SOONER TEAM IN 1974 WAS THE ONLY TEAM TO WIN A NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP WHILE ON PROBATION, THEY WERE THAT GOOD. Barry also won a Super Bowl with the Dallas Cowboys. HAPPY BIRTHDAY, COACH SWITZER!!!
Happy Birthday The former OU coach is 77 today!

For you history buffs. On this day in 68 - Nero committed suicide, before he was killed by the Roman Senate. On this day in 1934 - Donald Duck was introduced for the first time. On this day in 1963 - Barbara Streisand made her first appearance on the Ed Sullivan Show. And for us Oklahoma fans a sad, sad, day - On June 9th, 1989 Barry Switzer resigned as OU head coach after 16 glorious years and 3 national championships. The really bad thing is, I remember most of these when they happened - and that is sad!
Bob Stoops Head Coach 16th Season (1999-) Football Coaching Staff The winningest coach in Oklahoma history, Bob Stoops owns the singular distiction of being the only college head coach to lead his squad to victory in every BCS bowl game and the BCS National Championship Game. Quantifying the lasting impact that Stoops has made on Oklahoma is the easy part. No head coach in the Sooners’ illustrious history has produced more victories than Stoops (160), who surpassed Barry Switzer in 2013. That OU coaching lineage of 100-game winners also includes the iconic Bud Wilkinson and Bennie Owen. Stoops has led the Sooners to a school-record 15 consecutive bowl berths and eight Big 12 titles. Even though he didn’t arrive in Norman until the Big 12 was three years old, the Youngstown, Ohio, native has already coached the program to more than twice as many championships as any other school in the league with eight. Putting Stoops’ accomplishments and remarkable consistency in the proper national perspective isn ...
So, Phil Mickelson is under investigation by the SEC for trading securities while accepting "insider information". Inside trading. Just like Martha Stewart & Barry Switzer.

Wow, it was an awesome day at the Toby Keith and Friends Golf Tournament at Belmar Country Club! I spent some quality time with Toby this morning (he's the nicest guy), then I was introduced to John Daly who knew our brand, we had a good time. I met Barry Switzer (the old head couch for the Cowboys) and also Steve Stricker, who was also very nice! You'll all have to believe me 'cause I am NOT a "let me get a picture with you" guy! I figure that if they're nice enough to donate their time to Toby's great cause, then I'm gonna be nice enough to not become the paparazzi! It really was an awesome day, especially seeing more than 100 L.O.F.T. GOLF shirts on more than 100 people! We're so very proud to be a part of this great course and even greater cause! I can't wait 'til next year!

Highly recommend the Movie "Draft Day" with Kevin Costner. Not one cuss word, no sex, no violence,no nothing except a great plot and very well written. Even non sports fans will enjoy. There are some characters who really resemble some real life folks, such as Johnny Football, Jerry Jones, Barry Switzer. Also all the ESPN folks are in the movie as well as Commissioner Roger Goodale. Frankly, I cant say enough good about it. If you are a friend of this site you will definitely like this movie.
thanks for taking the pic with my daughters. They were celebrating the one on the lefts upcoming wedding Saturday.

After he tried to win a email war with me over my blog, I did refer to him as Fabio, Slobio, Flabio..some of those I got from my readers..I remember he replied the Flabio hurt.

WHMA Thursday News Update - Karen Lynn Rowland, 41, of Piedmont, was arrested Wednesday on two counts of aggravated child abuse, a felony. Etowah County Sheriff Todd Entrekin says his deputies arrested the daycare worker accused of hitting a child on the face with a folder, and slamming another child’s head on a table. Video evidence is cited as the source of the charges and that they happened during the week of February 10th. The victims were 4 years old. Rowland was taken to the Etowah County Jail where she was later released on a $10,000 bond. Senator Scott Beason (R-Gardendale) said Wednesday that citizens should not have to pay for their 2nd Amendment right to carry their weapons. Current law allows people to carry their pistol in their vehicle without a permit, but the weapon has to be unloaded, locked away and out of reach. Beason said an unloaded weapon is useless. The Senate Judiciary Committee will vote next week on the issue. Bobby Timmons, executive director of the Alabama ...

Barry Switzer isn't too fond of Johnny Manziel as a person.
Just in case anybody forgot what a complete POS Barry Switzer is...
This comment about "Johnny Football" by Barry Switzer is one of the most honest public statements I have ever heard or read about :) "I'm gonna tell you. I said Johnny Manziel is … I don't like his antics. I think he's an arrogant little *** I've said that and I'll say it again. He's a privileged kid, he's embarrassed himself, he's embarrassed his teammates, his program. He's embarrassed his coach. And they'll all have to defend him because they have to coach. I know that. I spent 40 years in the *** game so I know how it works."
Barry switzer I love you opinion of Johnny Manziel
Barry Switzer calling someone an arrogant pick is precious
When Barry Switzer thinks you're out of control, it's time to reevaluate the direction your life has taken.
Barry Switzer talked about Johnny Manziel on radio Wednesday morning and called him an "arrogant little *** " But he also called him "the most dominant, most dynamic college quarterback I've ever seen." So there's that.
Always knew I liked Barry Switzer. He was just quoted saying Johnny Manziel is "an arrogant little *** . Right on Barry.
Heard part of an interview with ex-college & NFL head coach Barry Switzer. He basically threw Johnny Manziel under the bus, saying he's been an embarrassment to himself and Texas A&M, as well as being an "arrogant little *** " This from a guy who coached "The Boz." Ya, he wasn't arrogant and never did anything embarrassing...

BUT I WILL SAY Becoming a MINORITY group member might be cool THEN maybe I'll be able to blame CIRCUMSTANCES for ALL my problems.
Barry Switzer calls Manziel an embarrassment? When Switzer was head coach at Oklahoma his players were arrested for shootings, drug deals and gang rape to mention a few things. I guess that's not embarrassing to him.
Barry Switzer calling out Manziel as an embarassment? Isn't that the pot calling the kettle black?
So Barry Switzer had the nerve to call Johnny Manziel "an arrogant little *** " "An embarrassment." Well, "Hey Mr. Pot! This is Mr. Kettle. You sure are black!!"
Dear Barry Switzer, is it possible your lack of success is due to you drawing conclusions and acting on them, even though you have no experience or knowledge of what is happening? Try in one swift but energetic movement to pull your head out of your butt. It is rather deeply embedded i would say.

Former Cowboys coach Barry Switzer thinks Johnny Manziel is 'an arrogant little pr--'
Barry Switzer calls Johnny Manziel an "arrogant *** " Whether the kid is or isn't, isn't it. Barry Switzer having the stones to call anybody what he epitomized back in...How many weeks was it before management severely curtailed his free-speaking publicly? Four? His foot was in his mouth so often he got Athletes Tongue. Even he knows he's not the brightest spoon in the collection but sheesh. Give him some toilet paper to wipe his mouth.
As the only football fan in America to not get a Johnny Manziel autograph last summer, 76 year old Barry Switzer gets his revenge today by calling Johnny Football "arrogant" When asked to respond to Switzers comments Manziel said "No matter what he says I will always love his singing with the Bee Gees"'
Barry Switzer can go jump off a cliff
That polarizing Johnny Manziel has another detractor. Former Oklahoma coach Barry Switzer was on a St. Louis radio station Wednesday morning and while he said he admired how hard the former Texas A&M quarterback played, he wasn't a fan of his attitude.
Barry Switzer said some pretty naughty things about Johnny Manziel.better shut Ur mouth about to do work
During an interview on a sports talk radio show in St. Louis this morning, Barry Switzer delivered the ultimate backhanded compliment on Johnny Manziel.
I guess Barry Switzer spoke his mind on Johnny Manziel..
The majority of Cowboys fans blame Jerry for the nasty divorce with coach Jimmy Johnson. But Barry Switzer made one thing clear on Tuesday -- it was Jimmy, not Jerry, that 'cheated'.
I didn't care for Barry Switzer when he was the coach at Oklahoma, didn't care much for him when was coach at Dallas{far as I'm concerned Jimmie won that one too}, and I don't care much what he thinks about Johnny Football. He's gone from red to silver and blue to green.
First Ron Jaworski, now Barry Switzer... I totally take back everything good I ever said about Johnny.. Now that I've got these two expert opinions.. What a joke.. Go home Barry.
Why do we care what Barry Switzer thinks about Johnny Manziel?
Barry Switzer says Johnny "football" is arrogant and privileged. Coming from a guy who was the coach of the Dallas Cowboys and Oklahoma Sooners, I LOLed.
Get your iPhone insurance today!
Is Barry Switzer an *** Maybe, but he did go on to say some pretty great things about Manziel's talent on the field though. Coaches in the NBA had a lot of negative things to say about Dennis Rodman, but every single one of them admitted that they'd love to have Rodman on their defense. Coaches talk snap about the antics of athletes all of the time. I've never liked Switzer (one of "Coach Jerry's" many mistakes), but I think it's much ado about nothing.
So...Barry Switzer insulted Johnny Manziel. Is it REALLY an insult considering the source?
Barry Switzer, ex coach of the Oklahoma Sooners and Dallas Cowboys called Johnny Manziel a "Privileged arrogant little *** I don't like Manziel either, but gee coach. ...Onward
"Barry Switzer thinks Johnny Manziel is an 'Arrogant Little *** ..." Well, alrighty then.
Barry Switzer: Johnny Manziel is an "arrogant little ***
Well, Barry Switzer doesn't mince words, does he? Wow.
Anyway, looks like Barry Switzer didn't read Wayne Green's Tulsa World editorial about civility and Venus and Hesperus.
In case you missed it earlier, peep out what Barry Switzer had to say about Sam and Manziel (via
[Dallas Morning News: Dallas Cowboys Blog] - Barry Switzer: Blame Jimmy Johnson for his departure ..
Pete Carroll fact... He was fired as head coach by two different teams... The Jets bagged him after one year so they could hire RICH KOTITE. He also was USC's sixth choice as head coach, and many USC boosters threatened to pull their cash flow after he was hired by the Trojans. Don't even get me started on what the FANS said. Yet here he is, barring one of the greatest collapses in NFL playoff history (nevermind Super Bowl history) away from joining Barry Switzer and Jimmy Johnson as the only coaches to win both a Super Bowl and an NCAA National Championship as a head coach. Perserverence my friends. It pays. Jay
Oh my goodness! ! ! I now know what has happened! ! Now this is just a theory but I think possibly Jerry Jones has hijacked the broncos and suited up the cowboys in their place. And him and Barry Switzer are calling the plays from the sky box!

Tosh ma gosh...on ESPN, Coach Ditka just said, "Yesterday's history, that's why they call it a mystery. Today's a gift, that's why they call it the present". Pretty cool ;-) (I always liked the Razorback's Frank Broyles saying..."It's your attitude, and not your aptitude, that determines your altitude"). BTW, anybody know that Pete Carroll was once a Hogs football assistant? (and Jimmy Johnson, and Heyden Fry, goes on and on...why they call it the Frank Broyles Assistant Coach of the Year Award). Barry Switzer's son played for the Hogs.
Went to the Oklahoma Sports Hall of Fame luncheon today with my dad. What a honor it was to sit in the same room with all these Oklahoma legends! Guys like Barry Switzer, Pat Jones, JC Watts, Roy Williams and Leslie O'Neill!!
The two former coaches are Barry Switzer, who Zimmer worked for with the Dallas Cowboys, and Mike Price, who was Zimmer's boss at Weber State University. Switzer is most widely known for his run as the head coach of the Oklahoma Sooners, while Price held a number of college football jobs, most notably at Washington State and Texas-El Paso (and he was also the head coach at Alabama for roughly five minutes). Price, for one, says he views Zimmer "as a son." Price was one of the pallbearers at the funeral of Zimmer's wife, Vikki, who died in 2010. "He was my defensive coordinator (at Washington State), and we led the nation in defense his last year before he went to Dallas," Price said. "He's the best defensive coordinator I've ever been around or know about." . . . "I can't believe he's still available," Price said. "I thought he would have been a head coach a long time ago. Maybe it's because he's honest and blunt and tells the truth. He's real. He's not a phony. He's very well respected in the profession, ...
With Bill O'Brien officially named the new Texans head coach, the 44-year old becomes another in a growing list of former college coaches now patrolling the sidelines in the National Football League. O'Brien spent the past two years as the head man at Penn State, compiling a 15-9 record while winning several national coaching awards. Although O'Brien spent the previous five years working in the NFL for the New England Patriots, a majority of the Dorchester, Mass., native's tenure has been at the college ranks. College coaches moving onto the NFL isn't a new phenomenon, with roots tracing back to the beginnings of the league. Perhaps the most famous of the college converts was the great Vince Lombardi, who spent time at both Fordham University and West Point before becoming an assistant coach with the New York Giants. Lombardi went on to become perhaps the most revered NFL coach of all-time, reinventing the game with the Green Bay Packers throughout the 1960's. Names like Jimmy Johnson, Barry Switzer and B ...
Because it was cold today, I had a cold and felt like crap and had nothing better to do. I thought I would just state some facts for all my Penn State friends...and you know who you are! The source is CBS Sports. Everyone is all praise to Jopa. He rolled up a lot of wins. You can do that when you schedule a bunch of weak teams. He beat the teams his team was supposed to beat. Most of the time. But how did he do against good teams? Read it and weep. vs. teams in the top 10…Joe Paterno was. 15 – 61 – 0 (.197) Guess he wasn't really that good, huh? Here is a list of the top regarded coaches of all time to see how he ranked agaist them… Pete Carroll. 12-4-0 (.750) Barry Switzer. 21-17-1 (.551) Jim Tressel. 8-10-0 (.444) Bear Bryant. 25-33-3 (.434) John McKay. 13-19-4 (.416) Nick Saban. 14-20-0 (.411) Woody Hayes.15-25-5 (.388) Bud Wilkinson. 8-13-1 (.386) Bobby Bowden. 26-47-1 (.358) Don James. 11-20-0 (.355) Tom Osborne. 18-34-0 (.346) Steve Spurrier.18-36-1 (.336) Terry Donahue.10-25-4 ...
Ou is playing like Barry Switzer is on the side lines. Dayum tide. Stoops might have been right about sec defenses this year. Somebody call auburn and make sure those new escalades are on the way for Marshall and the boys after the win..signed pat dye.
I am convinced that Brad Nessler is an *** Also, three coaches in modern football history with 9 wins each of their first six seasons: Tom Osborne, Barry Switzer, AND Bo Pelini.
Houston Texans name Barry Switzer as their new Head Coach!
Barry Switzer also did so in 1994 as the head coach of the
Chip Kelly is the first head coach to win the division in his rookie season in team history.” Barry Switzer?
Do want to thank this half-watching for noticing Barry Switzer was in VB.
Many of us saw the Dallas Cowboys in the days of Tex Schramm and Tom Landry, the big buyout when Jerry Jones took over and fired Tom Landry. Then he built a winning team with a winning coach, and after the Super Bowls, fired his wining coach, Jimmy Johnson, hire the goofball, Barry Switzer, then he began to hire mediocre coaches and has continued to profit and lead us all on. I have been a die hard Dallas Cowboys fan for my entire life. My belief is that if we continue to support Jerry's pocket book, he will continue to lead us on. We need to start a protest, not of the players, or the coaches, but the merchandise and ticket purchases. Somehow we've got to stop this runaway blue star train wreck.
There has been a lot of talk in recent years that college football coaches don't do very well when they get to the NFL. Steve Spurrier when he was at Washington is one, Lou Holtz at the New York Jets was another that come to mind. People have short memories, however. There have been coaches that jumped from college to the pros and were very successful. Paul Brown, Barry Switzer, and Jimmy Johnson all won National Championships in college ball, and World Championships in pro ball. Chip Kelly had great success in recent years at the University of Oregon. Tonight, in only his first year in the NFL, he won a division title. Way to go, Chip! Congratulations to you, Sir!
Barry Switzer was like the baby born into wealth Jimmy Johnson made the blueprint all he had to do was follow the guideline and got a SB.
I've noticed...He got lucky with Barry Switzer..don't kno they won a SB with him
Jimmy Johnson, Bill Parcells, and Barry Switzer all said the same things im saying about Jerry Jones. But hey what do they done
“8-8 8-8 8-8”> GM/owner fault.136-136 he's the ONLY thing in common...sorry that Barry Switzer and OU!
As I sit here and reflect on the state of my beloved Dallas Cowboys I just had a revelation. When we had Jimmy Johnson running the show and Jerry sat his butt down and just cut checks like real owners we had 3 rings (barry switzer was just a guy with headsets on during the 3rd championship run)..Jerry started running the show and turn the team into crap...Then Jerry realized his way wasnt working so he calls in Bill Parcells (the big tuna) to rebuild this storied franchise. .but before bill could complete his task once again Jerry just couldn't deal with just cutting the checks. SO AS I SIT HERE I PUT ALL THIS ON YOU JERRY FREAKIN JONES! JUST CUT THE CHECKS AND GET A REAL GM, HEAD COACH, COORDINATORS, TRAINERS, WATERBOYS, TOWEL BOYS, AND ANY OTHER POSITION THAT YOU FEEL YOU NEED TO FEEL!
Back in 1994 after Dallas had won 3 Super Bowls in 4 years Jerry Jones made the statement, "Any one of 500 coaches could have won those Super Bowls." Jimmy Johnson left, Barry Switzer left after coaching Jimmy's team to SB and since 1997 the Cowboys have won ONE PLAYOFF GAME. I will still root for them but I now know this is the norm for probably the rest of my life, as long as that pompous *** Jerry and his son are in charge of personnel. ***
Cowboys...I will always be a fan. I'm sick of Jerry Jones and his puppets! You are not a football man.hire a GM to run your organization. That's what successful people do! Every since you fired Jimmy Johnson, the Cowboys have been mediocre! The only reason Barry Switzer won a supper bowl was because of Jimmy Johnson. I could have coached that team and win! I will not buy a ticket, shirt, hat or pay any money as long as you are the GM! I will still watch the games but I have no expectations.
Barry Switzer made the playoffs in his first year coaching in the NFL, although he went 12-4 with his already loaded team.
Chip Kelly becomes the 2nd HC since div play began in '67 to win a div in his 1st season on an NFL coaching staff. The other: Barry Switzer.
The Dallas Cowboys Organization: Remove Jerry Jones as GM of the Cowboys Michael Benningfield Dallas 176,567 Supporters For thirty years I have watched the Dallas Cowboys. I have watched them in their "ups" and their "downs" and I have always felt for the Cowboys nation of fans. After Tom Landry left the Cowboys (he was fired) Jerry Jones took over as the Owner and General Manager. The Cowboys would have a couple of bad seasons and then go on to win three superbowls in four years. A conflict of interest after the second superbowl win, (aka Jerry Jones thinking he knows more than the coachs know about football) ousted then coach Jimmy Johnson. The Cowboys would win a superbowl under Barry Switzer and that would be it for them as a team. The Cowboys have a general manager that has no doubt done more for the NFL as a whole than any other owner in the last thirty years. Unfortunately, his head has swelled to a point that any common sense and logic as eluded his thinking, and has resulted in many years of ...
Wow! The Cowgirls did it again... The Barry Switzer curse lives! The EGirls didn't win, the Cowgirls lost...LOL. CONGRATS EGIRLS! Now just play your 3 Quarters next week...
Will someone please beg Bill Cowher to come out of retirement, take full control of coaching and gm responsibilities of the Dallas Cowboys, and rid us of this mediocre display of peewee football coaching prowess of Garett and co. Since Barry Switzer left after 97 we have been to a total of 6 playoff games, with one victory coming at the hands of Wade Phillips. 1. Uno. And Jones fired him for 8-8 Garett. 17 years, one playoff victory., One. Enough said
Could it be that Barry Switzer put a hex on Dallas when he left?? Think about it.
Since we resigned Kitna, can we resign Barry Switzer too??? Joel Navejas
"Friday was an emotional day for all of us that knew, loved and respected our late friend Steve Williams. His Memorial Service in Lakewood, Colorado was special and well-attended. It certainly was a day that created some lasting memories. Several individuals were provided the opportunity to speak including Hall of Fame football coach Barry Switzer, Doc's college wrestling coach at Oklahoma University Stan Abel, Terry Taylor, Leon 'Vader' White, Ted DiBiase Sr, Stan Hansen, myself, and many others in Doc's family and circle of friends. WWE executive and Doc's former tag team partner John Laurinaitis flew in from Connecticut to pay his respects. The services also featured some amazing video tributes to Steve and the closing video was one that many of you have likely seen where Doc talked about his love for Christ and how important living in God's word was to him. The entire service lasted about 3 hours or so and was extremely moving. It was a memorable day and I enjoyed hearing the many stories about my ado ...
Cowboy fans when you see Tony Gonzalez play his final game of his remarkable NFL Hall of Fame Career today, say thank you Troy Aikman & Jerry Jones for being *** and not listening to Barry Switzer's advice on wanting to draft Gonzalez instead of Aikman & Jerry's beloved David LeFleur. Switzer said many times over that he thought the Gonzalez kid was special and would of made an immediate impact on Dallas' Offense. Tony Gonzalez would of been a great replacement to Jay Novacek. But since Troy wanted Lafluer instead, we all know how the story went from there... Downhill from there, these past 17 years, only 1 playoff win...
I remember when these frauds were attacking Barry Switzer because he was a WINNER and Gary Gibbs too.
BEDLAM was my fav game of the season! Poor thangs.I still crack up when they tried to pull that old Barry Switzer flea flicker on OU defense!!! CLASSIC! I still get a big chuckle when I think about the look on their faces!! Like "How'd he know I was a gunna do that"!!!???

I'll Take Bill Walsh Joe Montana and that niners against who? Barry Switzer??? Troy Aikman and that D was a lil shaky lol
Cowboys Fans,I just wanna let yall know that your problem aint Romo your problem is your owners ego!! Every since Jerry Jones bought the Cowboys he's been trying to make sure that he's the one that get's all the credit for anything having to do with the Cowboys but he's not a coach.When he bought the team he got rid of Tom Landry because he knew Tom was the face of the Cowboy's,then he brought in Jimmy Johnson who did what he was hired to do he drafted Aikmen,Irvin,Emmit,and everybody else who was significant on that Championship team and won the Super Bowl,but Jerry didn't like that Jimmy Johnson was getting credit so he told the media that he didn't need Johnson he could have won with Barry Switzer so out goes Johnson and in comes Switzer. Switzer won that year because he was playing with the same team that Jimmy Johnson built but after that win nobody else has been able to win in Dallas and Jerry Jones is still holding press conferences and trying to play coach.SMH Whats even worse is now Jerry's son h ...
Here is more A: "Dammit mom, why'd you wake me up? I was having an amazing dream!" Q. How are the Dallas Cowboys like my neighbors? A. They can't pick up a single yard! Q: Want to hear a Cowboys joke? A: Tony Romo! Q: What is the best thing Tony Romo ever did in the Cowboys Stadium? A: Jessica Simpson! Q: Why is Tony Romo like a grizzly bear? A: Every fall he goes into hibernation. Q: How many people does it take to beat the Cowboys? A: Only 1 - Wade Phillips Q: Why does Michael Irvin cry during sex? A: Pepper Spray. Q: Why was Barry Switzer carrying a gun? A: He was practicing the Run and Shoot. Q: What's Jerry Jones biggest Collective Bargining concern A: Does Bail Money count against the Salary Cap? Q: Why can't Michael Irvin get into a huddle on the field anymore? A: It is a parole violation for him to associate with known felons. Q: Did you know the Cowboys had a 11 and 5 season this year. A: 11 arrests, 5 convictions. Q: What do you say to a Dallas Cowboy in a suit? A: Will the defendant please rise ...
So, they say Romo is out for the year. Good! Can't say I like his back up any better. I can't believe they paid second string Kyle Ortin or whatever his name is 10 million for three years. Jerry Jones is the one who makes these stupid decisions. They need to fire him as the owner or he needs to sell them, and I would be totally ok if he dropped dead. I grew up wearing a Cowboy stocking cap. He has totally ruined Dallas. The only people I give credit for to his three Super Bowl wins is Jimmy Johnson and Barry Switzer. Two people who truly knew what they were doing, and Jerry Jones ran them both off.
Great memories at Candlestick! Jan. 3, 1971 Cowboys 17, 49ers 10 This was the first NFC title game since the AFL-NFL merger. The game was pretty much all defense, but Cowboys running back Duane Thomas did run for 143 yards with a touchdown. The Cowboys would lose the Super Bowl against the Colts. The next year, the Cowboys defeated the 49ers in the NFC title game in Texas; two weeks later, they won their first Super Bowl. Jan. 17, 1993 Cowboys 30, 49ers 20 Arguably the most famous play of the '90s dynasty Cowboys was in this game. Leading 24-20 late, the Cowboys called "896 F flat" where Troy Aikman hit Alvin Harper on a slant that gained 70 yards and set up the game-clinching score. The Cowboys won the next two Super Bowls. Jan. 15, 1995 49ers 38, Cowboys 28 Arguably the most exciting game the Cowboys played in the 1990s. Barry Switzer's Cowboys fell behind 21-0 before his team came back to make it a game. This is arguably the best Cowboys team that did not win a title. The 49ers won the Super Bowl.
Friends of ours have kids that started soccer this year. Went to watch a game and I was kinda frustrated cause it was basically just a mob chasing the ball around with no organization or designed plays. Reminded me a lot of Barry Switzers coaching style.
Not many people can say they love who they work for...Today Barry Switzer came in, he was so nice & down to earth. The King was so easy to talk to & EXTREMEMLY Kind I wish more people were like him. Coach does some amazing things for people, even strangers & I am more than happy to work for him.
Jerry Jones to sign Romo to lifetime contract. Barry Switzer to become consultant.
This season takes me back to the horrible Barry Switzer days. SMH! Really struggling vs the Skins?!
For all of you Husker fans who are doubting Bo Pelini's coaching skills, I bet this never came to mind. With a victory in the upcoming bowl game, Pelini would become the fifth coach ever to win nine games in each of his first six seasons, joining Tom Osborne, Barry Switzer, Chris Petersen and George Woodruff, who coached Penn State in the 1890s...FIFTH COACH EVER!!!
Stephen Jones says Jerry will lead Cowboys to a championship, sooner than later Posted by Mike Florio on December 21, 2013, 12:16 PM EST On the same day Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said it’s so much harder to win now than when he bought the team nearly a quarter-century ago, his son declared that Jerry will lead the team back to glory, sooner than later. “We’re gonna win a championship sooner than later with Jerry at the helm,” Cowboys executive V.P. Stephen Jones said Friday on 105.3 The Fan Dallas/Ft. Worth on Friday, via the Dallas Morning News. The comments are telling, in two ways. First, they represents an admission of sorts that Jerry wasn’t truly “at the helm” for the first three championships the Cowboys won during the Jones tenure. Second, they underscore the widespread belief that Jones would prefer to be the captain of a barely-buoyant boat over riding sidecar to a coach who picks the food, buys the groceries, kicks the *** and takes the names, possibly not in that precise ord ...
Charles i do root for OU and Texas but i just cannot root for Stoops. According to most Websites OU is the Most Prestigous football team in history of college football. Ohio State is 3 and Texas is anywhere from 5 to 8. I loved the Barry Switzers days. Hopefully this will keep Meredith from throwing ice at me tomorrow.
(RE-UPLOADED A BETTER QUALITY VERSION) If you are a Sooner fan and don't know who Barry Switzer is then shame on you. Barry Switzer is arguably the greatest ...
Barry Switzer just named Texas Longhorns new head coach!!! HOOK EM!
Randy is in Norman hanging out with the Sooners and Barry Switzer, and I'm on the couch.
He's SO excited that he got mail and even more excited that it had "$55 dollars" in his cards!! He kept yelling "55 dollars!" Thanks, grandpaw! Barry Switzer
Do you think that Chip Kelly is a Revolutionary for college coaches in the NFL with an above 500 record in 2013 so far? Or do you think he is cut from the Barry Switzer Cloth inheriting Andy Reid's past draft picks & Roster similar to how Barry Switzer did in '95 When Jimmy Johnson left Dallas.
Finally got around to watching "Youngstown Boys", the ESPN 30 for 30 and I couldn't help but think back to Barry Switzer and Marcus Dupree. It occurs to me that if you're a college athlete, you might not be treated the way you expect even IF you produce on the football field. I seriously have a new perspective on college athletics and Maurice Claret. That kid got hosed by the media.
My Open Letter to Jerry Jones. Dear Mr. Jones. I am writing this letter as a long time Dallas Cowboy fan. I have been a Cowboy fan for a majority of my life. I first became a fan on January 17, 1971 during Super Bowl V when the Dallas Cowboys played the then Baltimore Colts. It was my real first memory of professional football during my childhood as my dad and I sat and watched the game together. My dad served his country as a security police in the Air Force for 21 years, I was 9 years old when we sat and watched that game together. I have supported the team through the glory years of “Doomsday Defense I” and the two Super Bowl victories lead by Roger Staubach in the 70’s as well as the two heart wrenching loses to the Pittsburg Steelers. I sill hurt thinking about what happened during the last Super Bowl between the those two teams back then when I had to watch Jackie Smith drop a wide open pass in the end zone which probably costing them the game. I have watched the changing of the guard in ...
Barry Switzer was wound up today, "Switzer on the Springdale 5,"I recruited Texas forever and I never saw 5 guys on the same HS team I wanted to sign." On the national championship committee " I will listen to Condeleeza Rice re: international affairs, but she ain't going to tell me a *** thing about football"
DALLAS - With his team in the midst of a two-game losing streak and its linebacker corps decimated by injuries, Jerry Jones is fending off self-pity by remembering something Barry Switzer used to s...
After watching "A Football Life", on The NFL Network last night, my opinion of this guy is even stronger than it was before. Marty Schottenheimer is the perfect coach. I don't want to hear about his post season record. I don't care about his post season record. The measure of any coach, is what he accomplishes with what he's been given. He is a teacher. A teacher of football. He is both passionate and one of the most knowledgeable minds in professional football. Combining those two things with the ability to teach and to relate to men half your age is an achievement. In my opinion.Marty was such a good coach, that he could get you to the playoffs with virtually any roster a GM would give him. But to get THROUGH the playoffs, requires skill at certain positions that Marty NEVER was given. He never had a HOF quarterback like Chuck Noll, or Tom Landry, or Dan Reeves, or Don Shula, or Vince Lombardi, or Marv Levy, or Bill Walsh, or Barry Switzer, or Bill Belichick, or Hank Stram, or Tony Dungy, or Bud Grant e ...
It has been said that everyone has a twin … another person who closely resembles them in appearance. I have actually met my twin. It happened long ago before I became fat, old and ugly. On several occasions different people asked me if I was Darrel Royal, the longtime football coach at the University of Texas. A charity golf event was being held at Bella Vista during the time we were living in Arkansas. Many coaches from around the country were participating in the tournament including coach Royal. As he was waiting before hitting the ball from one of the tees I said to him, “Has anyone ever asked if you are Kenneth Woods?” We both laughed and had our picture taken standing next to each other. The first year I lived in Wichita a man stopped me as I was walking downtown and asked if I was Barry Switzer who was the football coach at the University of Oklahoma. I’m not for sure what it is about the coaching thing unless it is because I walk around with a scowl on my face. Shortly before reti ...
A glimpse into the mind of Jerry Jones. He was asked about how much he paid attention to the Redskins & Dan Snyder...this was his answer. “Barry Switzer, our coach, used to tell the team, I’m your wagon master, we’re back in the covered wagon days, we’re going to California. We’ve got to cross the Mississippi River to get there. A lot of you are gonna die. We’re gonna have new faces as we go along the way, we’re gonna burn some of these wagons for firewood, float the Mississippi with others. This train is gonna get to California. I’m gonna try to be on it; I hope you’re on it.”
Can I ask a serious question. What is the fascination with the Dallas Cowboys. When I was young they were a class operation. Mr. Tom Laundry, Roger Staubach, too Tall Jones and so own. But when Jerry Jones, Jimmy Johnson and Barry Switzer took them from Americas team to the scum of the NFL I now always pull against them. Bt the way Romo is a choke joke. Just saying.

I am really close to be done as a Dallas Cowboys fan! I have loved this team for a very long time and Jerry Jones seemed to be a good thing when he bought the Cowboys many years ago...but it was really just smoke and mirrors with Jimmy Johnson being the real reason for the Cowboys success, as well as an awesome quarterback and running back combo with Aikman and Emmit and a guy named Irvin.oh yeah and they also had something called a DEFENSE. Barry Switzer was able to leech off of Jimmys amazing coaching and win a Superbowl...but once again it was all Jimmy Johnson. Now with years and years of a Meglo-Maniac as the Owner and GM of the Cowboys he has driven this once proud franchise to be the laughing stock of the league. Until he takes a back seat and hires a coach with a back bone and the basic ability to recognize that running the ball for nearly 100 yards in the first half and piling up a 23 point lead should lend you to run the ball and run the clock down to preserve that lead. They ran the ball on ...
For 45 years i have watched and rooted for the cowboys i even stood by them when Jerry fired Tom Landry i was there when Jimmy Johnson had his 1-15 season there with the Barry Switzer mess and all the other coaches as well as quarterbacks but after last yesterdays game i have to say until some changes are made Gm Coach & quarterback i will not be supporting the Dallas Cowboys. Im sorry but enough is enough
What does Barry Switzer think is holding the Oklahoma Sooners back from a national title?
The day that mr. Jerry Jones bought the cowboys, that was the darkest day for the team. 1). Jerry had no respect for the late Tom Landry. 2). He had great coaches but did not take care of them. I.e. Jimmy Johnson & Barry Switzer. 3). Jerry has no focus on the team only on the mighty dollar. 4). Da boys are no longer a america's team. Titles are earn not bought.
Gentlemen, Once again we were able to *** defeat from the jaws of victory. -Coach Barry Switzer
Good Morn.The so called America's team the Dallas Cowboys um.The demise of the team in my opinion has little to do with the productivity of the team, but has everything to with a very important question, who is the coach of the Dallas Cowboys? Out of all of the teams who played this week and this weekend, the only owner who put is face in and open his mouth to the media was Jerry Jones. Jerry Jones in my opinion is a Psychopathic, media hungry, micro managing buffoon. I believe the team plays more out fear for their jobs, rather than for the excitement and the love of the game. Great coaches such as Jimmy Johnson, Barry Switzer, Dave Camp and Bill Parcells, ran from the team because Mr. Jones the (Owner not coach) would not shut his mouth that often times seems to fly open with nothing valuable it, and stay in his lane and allow those he hired to do their job. Jerry Jones remove your foot out of mouth and let those that hire do what they do best, your not a coach or a player, yet you act like a slave mast ...
If God only gives us what we can handle, then he saves an extra shovel full for Saban. Every coach has his Achilles' heel. Bear Bryant couldn't beat Notre Dame. Darrell Royal couldn't beat Barry Switzer, who had it all over Tom Osborne. Saban? He can't just lose an Iron Bowl. He has to lose it in the most painful way possible.
Best NFL Player by Jersey Number: 8 Troy Aikman, QUARTERBACK Troy Kenneth Aikman (born November 21, 1966) was a quarterback for the Dallas Cowboys for 12 seasons. The number one overall draft pick in 1989, Aikman played twelve consecutive seasons as quarterback with the Cowboys. During his career he was a six-time Pro Bowl selection, led the team to three Super Bowl victories, and was the Super Bowl XXVII MVP. Aikman was elected to the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 2006 and to the College Football Hall of Fame on December 9, 2008 in New York City. Currently he works as a television sportscaster for the Fox network. He is a former joint owner of the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series racing team, Hall of Fame Racing, along with fellow former Cowboys quarterback Roger Staubach, and is a part-owner of the San Diego Padres. The New York Mets offered Aikman a contract out of high school, but instead of playing baseball he chose to pursue football and attended the University of Oklahoma under head coach Barry Switzer.
