Am I the only one that is wondering what in the world the Cowboys are thinking with Josh Brent on the sideline?

To answer Boomer’s question, no he is not.
I completely understand the idea of forgive and forget, but Josh Brent being at the game had to have been a huge distraction. Brent is currently faces charges of intoxication manslaughter, after a drunk driving accident that resulted in the death of his teammate Josh Brown.
I will say this, we don’t know the reasoning behind it, and if the team voted on it or the guys said we want him there then this is fine. The only way I see this being a problem is if the team wasn’t asked and the coaches or Jerry Jones did it on their own. Regardless, this is a very unique and difficult situation for everyone involved.
