Former Dallas Cowboys running back Emmitt Smith admitted that he’s frustrated with the team he won three Super Bowl’s back in the ’90′s. “I know that they’re working hard, but I can’t put my finger on why they cannot turn the corner,” Smith told East Texas’ 92.1 ESPN radio station, the Dallas Morning News. “Injuries are something that can plague any team. For us, we’ve had our share of it. It’s frustrating to see that they have so much talent on that football field, yet they cannot come together and execute at the level that they need to execute at for a long period of time. And what I mean by a long period of time, I mean the entire season. “Consistency is one of the hallmarks of my career. You knew what you were going to get out of E-Smith every game, every year, no matter if I was 22, 21 or 35 years old. And that’s something I look for in every team. Unfortunately for our team, it’s almost like a roller coaster ride.” Smith doesn’t blame Cowboys owner Jerry Jones. “I think it’s very wrong, because at the end of the day, Jerry Jones is an owner and he has the right to do whatever he wants to do with that ballclub,” Smith said. Smith also doesn’t believe the players are bothered by Jones being on the sideline. “I don’t think the players are thinking about Jerry Jones when he comes down on the sideline,” Smith added. “We don’t have time to think about it. We’re focusing on what we need to do on the football field.” Smith is happy with what head coach Jason Garrett has done. “I think the job he’s doing has been a good job,” Smith said. “I think our team fought hard to finish the season. Did we finish the season as strong as we wanted to? No. The Washington Redskin game was a disappointment. But they fought hard to get to that point. And I saw something in our team that I haven’t seen in a couple years. They fought to the end. And they came back even when the odds were against them. Smith added: “I want to see them get better, and I don’t mean just talk about getting better. I mean better in your walk, better in your play, better in your actions, better interaction amongst offense, defense and special teams.” Need NFL Tickets? var _CI = _CI || {}; (function() { var script = document.createElement('script'); ref = document.getElementsByTagName('script')[0]; _CI.counter = (_CI.counter) ? _CI.counter + 1 : 1; document.write(''); script.type = 'text/javascript'; var _CI = _CI || {}; (function() { var script = document.createElement('script'); ref = document.getElementsByTagName('script')[0]; _CI.counter = (_CI.counter) ? _CI.counter + 1 : 1; document.write(''); script.type = 'text/javascript'; script.src = 'http://widget.crowdignite.com/widgets/27484?_ci_wid=_CI_widget_'+_CI.counter; script.async = true; ref.parentNode.insertBefore(script, ref); })();
