In 1995 Dallas Cowboys Owner Jerry Jones (via an Interview with Michael Irvin) claimed he “Made a deal with God” where he said if The Cowboys Won Super Bowl 30, he’d never ask to win The Super Bowl again.  It just so happens since that time (22 years later) they have not even won a divisional playoff game since that time. They can never win another Super Bowl, and here’s why:

Skip Bayless brought part of this interesting story to my attention after The Cowboys 34 to 31 loss in the divisional round of the 2016 NFL playoffs. He briefly stated that perhaps the hand of God pushed what looked like a missed Packers field goal through the uprights. He was upset that his team fought back from a large deficit, had the momentum, and still lost. He mumbled on very briefly about how Cowboys owner Jerry Jones had begged God for the 1995 title in Super Bowl 30. His short story peaked my interest so I did a bit of research, and as I previously stated, Cowboys Owner Jerry Jones did in fact confess to Michael Irvin that he made that deal with God.

I also talked to some friends who are Cowboys fans to ask them about this story in an attempt to learn more from a Cowboys fan’s perspective on the subject. Not a single one had heard of this story, (other than Skip) which surprised me. (They were not very pleased to hear about it.) I later discovered that Jerry Jones has tried to bury his Interview with Michael Irvin for many years. He did, however, say in a brief interview with an NFL reporter after Dallas lost to the Packers in the 2016 NFL divisional playoff game when asked about the loss, and I quote:

“Man I’ve been trying to take that one back from God for years”.

Unfortunately, for Jerry and his Cowboys I personally don’t think God works that way.

One thing that is perhaps the most interesting is the extremely bizarre way they have lost the small handful of playoff games they’ve competed in since 1995. We all know how they lost on a curve ball field goal attempt by Mason Crosby of the Packers in their most recent defeat. Here are some more odd defeats the Cowboys have suffered in their handful of playoff games since 1995:

1) The 2006 wildcard playoff game vs. the Seattle Seahawks. The Cowboys lost 21 to 20 when QB Tony Romo mishandled the snap on what would have been a game winning field goal, and was tackled at the two yard line.

2) The 2007 Divisional Playoff game vs. The New York Giants. The Cowboys lost 21-17 thanks to a Tony Romo turnover in the end zone from the Giants 10 yard line in the final moments of the game. Tony Romo threw the ball to The Giants. There was not a single Cowboy in sight.

3) The 2014 Divisional Playoffs. The Cowboys lose 26-21 to The Packers in a game that will forever be known as: ” The Did Dez Catch it? game”  The Cowboys were driving late, and QB Tony Romo seemed to have thrown a long game winning TD pass to WR Dez Bryant. The only problem was that It was ruled not a catch. Sports Writers, Journalists, NFL Football Fans, Analysts, and sports talk show hosts still debate whether Dez Byrant caught the ball or not to this day. Most of us ( myself included) know that he caught the ball. The end result: Still a loss.

Things are also looking very bleak for the 2017 Cowboys before the season has even begun. The Dallas Cowboy’s best player by far, RB Ezekiel Elliot (who is currently under investigation for domestic abuse amoung other acts of violence), can’t seem to stay out of trouble.  According to NFL.com’s Adam Schefter it is more likely than not that the Cowboys star RB will be suspended for a portion of the season, they’ve lost two good offensive linemen, and well over half their defense in free agency, and their replacements through the draft are unproven. Losing just Zeke will make it very hard for The Cowboys to win games this upcoming season. (Especially in a division where every team, except for perhaps the Redskins, is extremely talented). You should be sensing a pattern by now.

Here are Jerry’s exact words from his interview with Michael Irvin:

Jones said

“The third Super Bowl I was a part of, I made a deal with the man upstairs. I said ‘god, if you let me win this Super Bowl, I’ll never ask for another one again’. I’ve been trying to back out on that deal ever since,”.

NFL Football fans are very superstitious. In my opinion superstition is one thing, and God is another. Not everyone believes in God, and we are all entitled to our own opinions, and beliefs. I personally believe in God, therefore I don’t believe that this is just a superstition, or a curse. I truly believe that the Dallas Cowboys cannot, and will not ever win another Super Bowl thanks to their beloved owner. As a proud Philadelphia Eagles fan I can say in all honesty that I am very pleased about this, and now I do not dislike Jerry Jones as much as I used to. Now he can build an NFL stadium the size of Dallas Texas, and put up a stadium screen even more ridiculous than the one that was punted into over and over. It won’t matter. Dallas Cowboys fans will simply have to watch their Cowboys lose on the NFL’s biggest screen. All Philadelphia Eagles fans should be beyond happy that they will get to witness their team win more Super Bowls in the future, ( I believe they’ll win 2 or 3 in The Carson Wentz era) than The Cowboys. ( Who can never win it again.)
