The Dallas Cowboys got one thing right recently, but it was long overdue and nothing to write home about. Dallas finally mustered the courage to strip head coach Jason Garrett of his offensive play-calling duties, which should have been done a year ago. However, the root of Garrett’s problem was exposed less than 24 hours later when former All-Pro nose tackle Jay Ratliff was arrested and charged with DWI.
Ratliff is the second Cowboys defensive lineman to be arrested and charged with this account, joining his backup, Josh Brent. Two such accounts for one team is too many, but it’s safe to assume these aren’t the only Dallas players that have done this–the others just haven’t gotten caught.
