The Counselor is IN:
The Dallas Cowboys need Roy Williams or someone like Roy to get back on track in 2009. I am not referring to the Cowboys previous hard hitting safety. I am not talking about their current wide receiver. The Roy Williams I am focusing on is the national champion North Carolina basketball coach.
Coach Williams lead the Tar Heals to another national championship in the big March Madness tournament. I watched the Coach manage his team and their strengths continually during the season and their Final Four March. He knows how to work the referees and the press. He gives all the positive accolades to his players while taking responsibility for what went wrong on the way.
Coach Williams is not a players coach but he is also not dictator on the court. He brings a balance with coaching where he is respected by his players and they want to play their best for him and their selves. He can motivate his team and control their behaviors without throwing chairs. I am not a Wade hater but Wade will need to change his approach if he wants to bring the Boys back to their glory. The Cowboys tried the dictator approach with Coach Parcells and it did not work for the Boys either.
Coach Williams was able to get the most out of a greatly talented team. The Cowboys were one of the most talented NFL teams last year but could not make the playoffs. 2009 promises to return a greatly talented team even without T.O. but I have to wonder if the Cowboys will be able to get the most out of this team. They need a balanced approach when it comes to coaching like Roy Williams would bring.
