Troy Aikman has not shown any bias towards his former team while calling their games for FOX this season. In fact, the opposite has been true; he has been hard on them, and that was especially the case after the team threw up a stinker on Thursday night.

After Dallas lost 31-24 to the Chicago Bears, Aikman wondered how the Cowboys could move forward.

“I don’t know how you come back from this,” said Aikman. “For the last two weeks we’ve heard from them that they were going to get it going. They had a chance … I don’t know how you sell that if you’re Jason Garrett or Jerry Jones or anyone. When you have a performance like that, to say, ‘hey, we’re still alive, we’ll go play this week against the Rams and it’s all in front of us.’ I don’t think the players hear that. I wouldn’t hear it if I were them. And this is on the players as much as it is on the coaches. They’ve got to be better, but I’m not sure I’d even talk to the team this week.

“The talk is over, and it has been over for a while.”

The Cowboys are 6-7, but the thing is they are still in the playoff picture because the NFC East is so weak. Dallas hosts the Rams, visits Philly, and hosts Washington over its final three games.

Owner Jerry Jones thought he knew what he was doing by ripping his coaches after the New England loss, but that move seems to have backfired as they’ve lost two in a row since then.
