And The Winner Is…


Well, don’t worry guys. I’m not going to spoil it for you, but if you have been following Michael Irvin’s reality TV show, “4th and Long”, we are down to the final four and a winner has been selected.

The grand finale has been taped and tomorrow night we will know which contestant has earned the privilege to come to training camp and compete for a starting job with the Dallas Cowboys.

Barry Horn of the DMN, had an excerpt from Jerry Jones who will be front and center during the season finale which will air tomorrow night at 10:00 PM on Spike.

The following is what Jones said to the contestants:

“I am reminded with you when I first became part of the Dallas Cowboys it took people back. They kind of looked at me a little funny because I didn’t get there the traditional way, But during the period of time we’ve been involved we got to be part of three Super Bowl champions.”And one thing I did find out, that when you do something unconventional that will get people to stop looking at you funny. You guys have gotten here in a very similar way. This isn’t the normal way to come in and get an opportunity to play in the NFL.”

“If one of you is the ballplayer that Michael and Joe and Bill say, you’ve got a chance be here. Clear your Sunday afternoon calendar cause you are going to be spending it out here with a big star on your helmet.”

The show will feature two more cuts before selecting the winner from the remaining two players.

The four finalists are:

    Give it to Holley. He’s tall, strong and has pretty good speed. Let him beat out Stanback so we can finally cut the guy.
    I’ll take my chances with our receivers and hopefully the injury gods will treat us nice this season.
    Johnson – Rookie
