Dallas Cowboys

Dan Reeves, We Hardly Knew Ya

Dan Reeves - who played for and coached for and still bleeds for the Dallas Cowboys - soured on the inner workings of Valley Ranch in 48 hours.

Question: What took him so long?

Reeves, remember, turned down the offensive coordinator's gig with the San Francisco 49ers to serve as a consultant to head coach Wade Phillips and owner Jerry Jones.

Two days on the job and - poof - Reeves bolted.


Because Reeves is a football guy who likes to win, not a bullshit guy who likes to be popular.

Because, guarantee, Reeves didn't see eye-to-philosophical-eye with Jones.

And because of, you guessed it, Terrell Owens.
