I am sorry for the long absence, however I am pleased to inform all of you that I will be having my first child soon, so I’ve been very busy getting ready to be a dad. =)
Now on to the Dallas Cowboys and a few thoughts I have.
I will start with the upcoming NFL draft. There has been much speculation on who the Cowboys will take with the 27th pick. I have heard everything ranging from Eric Berry falling to our pick, to trading up in the draft to select Dez Bryant. Whatever Dallas does, I hope it’s with the goal of having this team playing football on February 6, 2011; the one thing that is most important for me. Dallas, no scratch that, the state of Texas, needs the Dallas Cowboys to succeed, and what better way than continuing our tradition of excellence than by being the first to play the “Big Game” in our brand new stadium?
My next order of business is ensuring a wining game plan to clinch a first place berth in arguably the most competitive division in the league. As we all know, Mac 5 was traded to our hated rivals the Washington Redskins (which might I add ruined my holiday lol) which now gives the Skins instant credibility. We all bashed the Redskins for years for spending all that money and never having a solid quarterback. Not anymore… Basically, they traded very little to get one of the best QBs in the NFL. The Washington Redskins already had a dominant defense and now if they can get some insurance on that O-Line they will be instant contenders because of the sheer greatness of Donovan McNabb. (By the way, rumor has it they are considering Flozell Adams.)
So as we all get ready for the ride that is the NFL season, don’t forget that we have a wonderful history and a rich tradition of excellence on our side.
I feel like this is our year and I believe that the players understand their jobs now. It won’t be easy… That big blue star on our helmet is always a target for our hated rivals, who are always motivated whenever they play our team.
Our task is not impossible or unobtainable it is very much in our grasps all they have to do is play like champions and all of us will be there for the ride.
I’m hoping that my new baby will be here to see its first Cowboys game on Thanksgiving, and Super Bowl title two months later. =) I am hoping for a girl, daddy’s little girl, my own princess to dress up in her pink Cowboys gear.
