Changes are coming for the Cowboys, possibly big, sweeping changes.
Coach Bill Parcells laid down the edict during a 30-minute meeting with Cowboys players and assistant coaches Monday morning at Valley Ranch. His
message was, not surprisingly, strong and emotional, coming on the heels of a last-second, 28-24 loss to the New York Giants on Sunday that slapped an
ugly bow on an uglier 6-10 season.
"Things are going to be different," he told his players. "Changes will be made."
He wasn't simply talking about signing a few free agents in the off-season. In "changes," Parcells included cutting Cowboys players who were not
earning their fat paychecks. He told his players the team had the salary cap room necessary to trim the unnecessary pork.
He also hinted changes are likely to his coaching staff and elsewhere in the organization.
