We've seen people defend the Cowboys time and time again.

That's what happens with America's Team. The expectations are always sky high, and fans can, of course, craft numerous excuses for why they fall short. With Ezekiel Elliott's suspension forcing the star running back to sit for six contests paired with key injuries to players like Sean Lee and Tyron Smith, this year was no different. 

One Dallas legend is absolutely sick of it.

Former Cowboys great and Hall of Famer Charles Haley puts the team on blast, saying Jerry Jones built his big new stadium for losers. 

Why don't you tell them how you really feel, Charles?

The former defensive lineman went on "The Dennis and Cowlishaw" show and did not hold back when he asked why the Cowboys regressed this season. He did mention the Zeke suspension of course, but also claimed this team took their 13-3 season for granted and didn't know how to win a game.

This should come as no surprise for those who are familiar with Haley. Back in 2016, Haley ripped the organization for how they handled the situation with Randy Gregory while also calling out the current Cowboys' lineman for not taking responsibility for his own actions. 

These words may seem harsh, but Haley has a point. Dallas put a Super Bowl appearance in the city's mind and did not even come close to meeting that goal, thanks likely in part to their own hubris and swelled egos. Once adversity reared its ugly head, this team collapsed. 

It's a shame Haley's too old to suit up. The Cowboys could use this kind of fire.
