Dallas Cowboys legend Michael Irving questions the team's unvaccinated players for their willingness to do what it takes to win a Super Bowl

Dallas Cowboys legend Michael Irvin is fed up with his former organization. And he’s not holding back.

After it was reported that the Cowboys were now one of the 13 teams who have met the 85% vaccination rate needed to get relaxed protocols from the NFL, Michael Irvin lashed out.

“Yeah, and it should upset them,” Michael Irvin said at the opening of the Dallas chapter for Merging Vets & Players via Total Pro Sports. “It should upset them. Dude, you’re not thinking right. You’re not thinking right. Whatever you got, I don’t give a damn … Nothing else can be more important. You’re not going to get this (winning a Super Bowl) easily.

“Nothing else could be more important … Jimmy (Johnson) made that abundantly clear (during his playing career). Nothing else is more important. And not being one of the (teams) says there’s other things to a great number of people on this team that are more important than winning championships and that makes me worried.”

The Dallas Cowboys are one of three teams set to open Training Camp this week, along with the Buccaneers and Steelers. And according to ESPN, the team will have labs set up on their premises for players who have still not taken the COVID vaccine.

Michael Irvin continued to call out players, saying they were not acting in the betterment of the team by choosing not to take the vaccine

“If you’re not one of them teams [at the threshold], are you really thinking about winning a championship? You see what I’m saying,” he said. “OK, so now if you’re not getting vaccinated and you got all these other teams that are getting vaccinated …”

“Somebody in that damn locker room [should say], ‘Hey man, we’re going to have a chance, are you vaccinated?’” Irvin said. “Let’s go through this because this could be a two-week healthy dude missing games, and in this league, this ain’t the NBA. In this league that could be it for you. The right person misses two weeks, that’s it. Your ass is out.”

Michael Irvin is the latest proof on how divided the sports world is right now as it pertains to the COVID vaccine.
