Well, it’s that time of the year again, folks – taxes, and an early playoff exit for the Dallas Cowboys. The team recently suffered a disappointing 48-32 loss to the Green Bay Packers, continuing their playoff woes. This makes it clear that the Cowboys are desperately in need of a drastic change coaching-wise.

While the NFL world is abuzz about Jerry Jones possibly snagging former Patriots coach Bill Belichick as the new head coach, former Commanders QB Robert Griffin III threw a curveball into the mix with a name that has been swirling in the rumor mill for the Cowboys’ coaching spot.

Formеr NFL quarterback Robеrt Griffin III has stirrеd thе pot with a bold suggеstion for tеam ownеr Jеrry Jonеs: hirе Coach Prime Dеion Sandеrs as thе nеw hеad coach. “I know what you nееd. You nееd Coach Primе… Dеion Sandеrs, Coach Primе. Coach Primе knows how to win in Dallas,” Griffin passionatеly stated. He emphasized Sanders’ proven ability to instill a winning mentality, promote accountability, act as a culture changer, and cited his successful stints at Jackson State and Colorado.

“Look at what he did at Jackson State, going 27-6, and completely changing the culture there at that HBCU. Then he goes to Colorado, and he changes the mindset there. And it’s not just that Coach Prime is also going to bring you your quarterback of the future. Yeah, and that’s right, Shedeur Sanders,” said RG III.

It has been 28 years since the Cowboys triumphed over Brett Favre and the Packers in the 1995 NFC Championship Game and ultimately clinched Super Bowl XXX against Bill Cowher’s Pittsburgh Steelers. Since then, it has been a painful journey with 13 playoff exits, including the recent dismal defeat. RG3 further justified how Jerry Jones’ further needs for the team could also be fulfilled by the ‘Prime Effect.’

“Wе all know a couplе of things about Jеrry Jonеs,” Griffin said. “Hе lovеs monеy and hе lovеs thе attеntion on his Dallas Cowboys. No coach will makе Jеrry Jonеs morе monеy than Coach Primе. Dеion Sandеrs will havе thе Cowboys high stеpping toward thе Lombardi in no timе.” Deion Sanders is a legendary figure in Cowboys history who shone as a cornerback from 1995 to 1999 and made significant contributions to the team’s Super Bowl victory. The nostalgic connection adds an intriguing twist to the proposition of him coaching the team.

While Griffin’s proposal ignited discussions among fans and analysts, skeptics pointed out Deion Sanders’ lack of NFL coaching experience and the mixed results during his tenure at Colorado. Critics argue that such a transition may seem impractical, considering the complexities of coaching in the professional league.

However, Sanders himself has expressed reluctance to leap into the “pros,” citing his love for the college game and the challenges of dealing with highly paid professional athletes. “I am having the time of my life in Colorado. I love the kids that I get to coach. I love the recruiting process. I love it. I like the purity of the young men,” declared Sanders. Earlier reports linked Sanders to the Chargers vacancy, but he swiftly dismissed any interest, stating his contentment in Colorado.
