T-Minus 24 hours til Draft Day…….

Hey guys, whats up? Yes I am alive and I did not join the peace corps or the convent and become a priest or anything like that. Sorry I havent been keeping up with lonestarstruck as of lately, but I just started a new job a few weeks ago and being in retail management is hectic if you dont know. Anyways, back to the reason Im here.

 The 2008 NFL Draft is a day away! WOOHOO! I dont know about you guys but I have been looking forward to this day since that ugly day back in January. I can’t help but think that Jerry is gonna pull a fast one on us and hopefully shock us in a good way. I keep getting the feeling that Jerry has already pulled off a draft day trade with someone (Detroit or Arizona) just by the vibe he has been expelling lately. Jerry keeps stating he is still looking for that WOW factor on offense and I dont think he means Pacman Jones.

Speaking of Pacman, I for one am happy he is a Cowboy. if he gets on the field this year, I think he will contribute immediatley. He might be a little rusty at first but the guy is only 24 or 25 I think so he will pick it up. Ofcourse, as of this article, the Cowboys and Pacman’s agent are still hammering out the details of the trade and contract but it is all essentially done. For all you Pacman haters, it will all go away when he returns a punt or INT for a TD.

Back to the draft, I am really hoping that Dallas picks up a WR and RB in the 1st round if they dont make a trade. I really like Darren McFadden but we wont get him unless he falls to 7th or lower. Imagine McFadden and Barber as a one two punch? Being the realist that I am, I am gonna go out on a limb here and venture to say that if the Cowboys dont trade any of their two 1st round picks they will draft, Felix Jones and Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie. Those are my two picks. I will interchange Limas Sweed in there depending on several factors. So there you go guys. Tune it in at 2 PM tomorrow and watch the Draft. I know I will. See you next time kiddies! Same Cowboys Time! Same Cowboys Place! Same Cowboys Channel!

    Fred you have well written words. I am definitely looking for a wow factor out of jerry this year. Now that Parcells is gone we should get away from the safe picks and go out on a limb and make a deal that may b a risk. We got a good jump so far by getting pacman, so lets keep the momentum and try to land Mcfadden. If we do keep our 2 picks i say lets try to take Rogers- cromartie and chris johnson. im not real big on felix jones for the simple fact that we have a great back in Barber so lets go get the fastest back in the draft since we couldnt get Mcfadden. SOOOO HOW ABOUT THEM COWBOYS!!!!!!!

  2. Congrats on the new job. I wish I was as confident as you about Pacman. He is an awesome talent but I fear his off the field behavior may poison the locker room. Hopefully he will keep his mind on his work and lead us to the Super Bowl! I just don’t know.
