The Sunday Spot by Fredooch

Hey guys, whats up? Well a few things on today’s agenda. First off, by the end of the day today, the 2007 season officially will be over and all things associated with it. Once the clock strikes 0:00 in Honolulu, we can start looking forward to free agency and 2008, which starts at the end of the month. So let’s do that, who’s going and who’s coming to Big D?

I have stated and will reiterate that Jerry Jones will go all out this off-season in free agency to make the Cowboys practically indestructable in 2008 for 3 main reasons.

  • Last year at Texas Stadium. With so much history and tradition associated with Texas Stadium and all the great Dallas Cowboys teams that have come and gone, Jerry Jones would love nothing more but to leave Texas Stadium as Super Bowl Champs. Opening up at the new 90,000 plus stadium in Arlington as Super Bowl Champs would give it the nostalga and carry on the tradition of Cowboys football. Now, anyone want to tell me that Jerry Jones isn’t thinking this way? 
  • Wade Phillips is on the HOT SEAT. With all these new coaches coming to Big D, you can’t help but think that Jerry Jones is assembling these former NFL coaches to come in to Big D with the WIN NOW mentality. For any of you that think Wade Phillips has absolutely anything to do with this process, well you all just need to come back from fantasyland. If the Boys don’t win Super Bowl 43, Wade Phillips will be looking for another job in 2009 and in steps Jason Garrett.
  • The loss to the Giants in the divisional round has been made even harder due to the fact that the Giants won the Super Bowl. As I stated before, Jerry Jones took the loss to the Giants pretty DAMN HARD. Jerry was even giving away tickets to the NFC Championship game in Dallas to players before the Giants game. Now knowing that, do you think Jerry isn’t waking up in the middle of night in a cold sweat nowadays dreaming of a Super Bowl lost? I would be SHOCKED if Jerry doesnt make some wheeling and dealing to land Samuel or Trufant if he isn’t franchised.

Those are the three main reasons I believe Jerry Jones will have Dallas primed to be Super Bowl favriotes come July. Way too much is on the line for Jerry and he knows it. Several media outlets have started reporting this same kind of reaction coming from Jerry, so it isn’t only myself that sees this coming. If they are available, expect either Trufant or Samuels to be wearing silver and blue next season. I am going out on a limb here and am going to guarantee that. Only if they are available though.

Cowboys safety Ken Hamlin has been trying to persuade both Samuels and Trufant to come to Dallas by sending them lavishing gifts in Hawaii while they are there for the Pro Bowl. Isn’t that Jerry’s job? It wouldn’t shock or surprise me as well if Dallas doesn’t trade away it’s draft picks for already established players. I think that if Arizona comes to Dallas or vice-versa and inquiries are made about Larry Fitzgerald, I think both Arizona and Dallas can work some kind of trade only if Fitzgerald agrees to a re-worked contract extension to make this trade possible. Keep your eye on that. Arizona has a huige financial burden with Fitzgerald and Im sure they are shopping him.

Here are some other names that might land in Big D via free agency or trade on draft day. Denver WR Javon Walker, I think we can get him for a 2nd or 3rd round pick. Chicago WR Benard Berriman in free agency. Patriots WR Randy Moss in free agency. Now don’t be shocked but if New England doesnt franchise the guy, don’t be surprised if in March he comes to Dallas on a visit with Jerry Jones. And San Diego CB Drayton Florence in free agency.  

***** 

Now, I have been toying with the fact that I want to get into the Graphics Design industry and have novicely started out trying to learn both Adobe Photoshop and Corel Draw on my own. I plan on going to school in the fall here at the local technical institute to learn the trade but I have been recieving pointers from both Kelly and Tiffany here at StarStruck. Thanks guys, love ya! I have had Photoshop for maybe a month or so now and Corel Draw for two months now. Both these programs cost me about the value of a good car down payment but I think in the end it will be worth it. I have also changed my myspace page to all things Dallas Cowboys and have created an alter-ego for it called ‘Cowboys Alliance’.

For those of you who are on my Myspace friends list you have maybe started recieving my bulletins of Cowboys graphics I have made. Although they are not even remotely anywhere near the quality of LoneStarStruck or StarGazzing Graphics, I think they arent that bad considering I am only a month or so into this thing. If you have any Cowboys graphic requests please send them to me at my Myspace page and I will get right on them. Any of you who want to be on my Myspace friend’s list here is my link: Fredooch. There are also a few graphics here that I made, hope you enjoy them and you can find more on my Myspace page.

So thats all for now kiddies. See you next time! Same Cowboys Place! Same Cowboys Time! Same Cowboys Channel!

  1. I agree with you Fredooch. I do think Jerry Jones is planning on a Superbowl Championship this next year. I think he was very disappointed with the way the season ended so abruptly in 2007 and expects great things in ’08. For that matter, so do I, and most other Cowboy fans. I think the Cowboys will win the Superbowl next year, but if that doesn’t happen (God forbid), it wouldn’t surprise me to see some heads roll due to the wrath of JJ.

    Hey Fred! Another good BLOG. I do agree with most of what you had to say. I do have some concerns with signing a BIG free agent only because we have alot of players to resign such as Flozell Adams, M.B.III, Ken Hamlin for starters. We also have Terence Newman’s contract next year. It is good for Jerry Jones to want another Superbowl with a BIG free agent, but I’m scared by put to much into that player we could lose alot of the nucleus that we have assembled here in the last few years. I just think we have a GOOD team. We just need some rookies and second year players to step up and make a difference next year. Just look at the Giants draft from last year. All seven made the team and I know of 3 that helped them win it all in the end. We don’t need to spend the bank to win another ring. Just players to STEP UP!!
