Marked on the Calendar

Keith BrookingKeith Brooking admitted when interviewed on Cowboy Insider, that he has had Sunday’s game against his former team of ten years, circled on his calendar since coming to Dallas. He thinks it will be a lot of fun, but at the end of day it isn’t about facing my old team, it is about us winning against a very good team. That is most important.

He added that he will prepare for the game, play confident and fly around and try to make plays to help the team win.<

Keith has only played on football team’s in the state of Georgia, from East Coweta High School in Senola GA, college football at Georgia Tech and then on to the Atlanta Falcons.

At age 34, moving to Dallas with his wife and two small children Ella and Logan has been refreshing. It is new and so far has been a lot of fun. Keith’s two children are in preschool, and have adjusted well to move.

The thing I noticed most in the interview was how dedicated he seemed to the team. He is by all means a team player. Bringing Brooking to Dallas is one of Wade Phillips best moves since becoming head coach. Brooking is a natural leader on and off the field. I think he has added a spark to the defense playing well with J-Ratt and Ware. He also is a veteran and can help develop young players. He has been to 5 Pro-Bowls and is working on heading to Hawaii this year the way he is playing.

I am quickly becoming a fan of #51!

    I love Keith Brooking. I didnt realize when he came to the team he was going to have such an impact. They always say the veterans bring leadership to the team, but for Brooking thats an understatement.

    The last game they played I seen Keith running up and down the sidelines when the offense was on the field, I think thats the moment I fell in love.

    Unlike Zach Thomas who came last year, he didn’t step into a leadership roll. He was more focused on a Super Bowl then being a leader. Brooking has been nothing short of a leader and a live-wire for this team. As long as he is on the field we should know we have a real leader out there.

    I agree Kelly. When I saw all the emotion on his face when Austin made the winning touchdown I thought to myself ” Now I really like this guy!
    ‘ That is when my research started. lol
