Flying Low

As a die-hard Cowboys fan, I am loving the World Cup, 11-hour games at Wimbledon, and King James taking up all the airtime.

Long gone are the days of T.O. falling asleep in meetings and doing crunches in his driveway.

As far as I know, not one player and/or coach is being investigated by any police department. To my knowledge, not one player and/or coach is being investigated by any college athletic commission.

If there is controversy in Dallas, I haven’t heard of it.

Oh, wait, Tony almost played in a golf tournament – whew, did that almost destroy the whole team!

I forgot, a Facebook joke made by Miles about a true NFL first-round bust almost destroyed the whole season!

Don’t forget about Patrick requesting a release!

By the way, I only speak with the sincerest of sarcasm. Flying under the radar is where this current Dallas team likes to be.  Flying under the radar is where this Dallas team needs to be.

We, as well as the rest of the league all know they’re still there … keep up the good work!

Now They Fear the Star

I just read this interesting article over at and thought it was worth sharing with our readers. Its nice to see the Cowboys are finally getting some much deserved respect in the league.

NFC Fear Factor: Cowboys are conference’s most dangerous team

1. Dallas Cowboys (11-5, No. 3 seed)

Beware of this red-hot team, winners of three straight and five of their last seven. Dallas has shown to be the most physical team in the postseason on both sides of the line.

The offensive front is road-grading, giving its trio of tailbacks room to run and allowing quarterback Tony Romo time to make the right decisions. Defensively, Dallas is making life troublesome for opposing quarterbacks with Jay Ratliff, Anthony Spencer and DeMarcus Ware living in the backfield.

Romo has been the main ingredient for the team’s solid late-season play. He seems unflappable, which has been a huge departure from his past. He relies heavily on tight end Jason Witten and No. 1 wideout Miles Austin with good reason. Romo is taking few gambles with his throws, and that ball security has been a big reason for Dallas’ late-season success.

It’s a deep run through the playoffs — or bust — for this evolving team.

How Do We Replace T.O.’s Game?

So here we are three days after we let Owens go, a huge mistake in my opinion. How exactly are we going to replace his offense?

Roy Williams will assume the number one spot although he has yet to prove he deserves it. He is paid like a number one receiver, but I cannot see him commanding the same respect that defenses showed Terrell.

As of right now Miles Austin is slotted as the number two receiver, with Crayton still in the three slot. Miles has game, but a number two receiver? I’m not so sure about that. Crayton is where he needs to be. He has proven he can thrive in the slot position.

Then there is Sam Hurd and Isaiah Stanback. Hurd was showing some promise in 2007, but injuries kept him from playing all of last season. Stanback in my eyes is a bust, he has shown little promise as a receiver.

Which leads me wonder, is this who Tony will throw to in 2009?

Now some might think Witten will step up another notch, but I actually think losing T.O. is going to hurt him more than any other player on this team. I have a feeling defenses will be doubling Witten and leave Roy in one on one coverage. Now if Roy can run some decent routes and make some catches it will ease the pressure off of Witten, but that remains to be seen.

Martellus Bennett could be a wild-card in all of this. If he can take the next step, he may be able to make some big plays with all the attention focused on Witten. Lets hope his mind is on the game and that he has matured in the offseason, because he has big-time talent. 

Is Jerry going to  add a veteran to move into the two spot? There isn’t much out there in free agency to fill the spot, Marvin Harrison maybe? Other than that, the best available WR is Bobby Engram, yikes!

There are some rumors that Torry Holt will be released and that the Browns are shopping Braylon Edwards… either of these two would fit in nicely across from Roy.

How about the draft?

Picking 51st in the draft, makes it unlikely that we will grab a receiver that can jump right into the starting lineup like a Michael Crabtree would. I have seen the name Juaquin Iglesias show up a lot in mock drafts for the Cowboys. He is a 6’0″ 205 lb. senior from Oklahoma, and has decent speed, running a 4.45 40, but jumping right in as a starter is a long shot at best .

I don’t know about you, but this Cowboys fan is extremely concerned about our receiving corps. I am hoping that Jerry Jones has something up his sleeve or it could be a very ugly season.


“No Need To Stand And Applaud”

Please, Please…Take your seats! 

Yup, that’s right ladies and gentlemen. I have risen out of the nasty stench left behind from our ‘Boys 2007 season exit.  Sorry for the long absence. It has taken me seven months to digest the playoff loss and pass it like some bad fish at a cheap sushi bar!  

 I’m feeling better now!

I’m ready to get pumped up for this upcoming season!!

So I take back what I said!…Everyone get back up outta those seats, pump your fists, raise the roof, and get ready for another Dallas Cowboys Super Bowl Run!  Time to ‘Unleash The Beast’!  They’re not gonna know what hit ’em!

Training Camp 2008 

Training Camp is just three days away. Players are preparing to leave, reporters are setting up shop, and Oxnard, CA. is on “High Alert” because of a Dallas Cowboys invasion. I’m so happy for the fans in that area to get another chance to witness history. San Antonio was supposed to have us locked up for a few years, but certain circumstance kept that from happening.

So glad for you all!

You have been blessed with not only the opportunity to see the greatest team in the NFL preparing for the upcoming season, but the opportunity to witness history in the making.

The Cowboys are preparing to enter their final season at Texas Stadium and there’s a strong desire to enter this season with Super Bowl hopes. For a lot of people out there its Super Bowl or Bust. 

 Not mad at ya a bit!

What better way to enter a new home then to have the proper pillar in the foundation. That proper pillar is the soon to be sixth Lombardi trophy. With the talent that we have locked up, there’s no other reason not to think this team will go all the way.

The Cowboys have made some moves, and locked up key guys that can dominate this league for many years to come. The pursuit of perfection and urgency is held so high in the air, it is bound to smack fear into all opposing teams that stand in our way. This is our year… our time.

I’ll be watching Hard Knocks.  I’ll be watching for you Oxnard fans to represent with class and embrace the moment.  We Are America’s Team! 

Hold up some “HI CHUCK” posters for me!  Ha Ha 

What Are Some Of Your Expectations For Training Camp?

I would like to ask you all to let me know what you would like to see addressed in training camp. Me personally, I would like to see special teams addressed the most. 

If Adam Jones gets reinstated, I’m eager to see the return game improve. Having a good return can take the edge off of a two or three score lead early in the 4th quarter with us trailing. I would like to see a long touchdown return and make it easier for the offense to come back in that situation. (hence the Patsies game last year.)  I’m sure we will have those games. We always do! 


 Rest The Vets!

Get the younger guys primed and ready. There’s no reason to push these 6 + year guys to the breaking point. One-a-days are enough for these guys (unless willing), but the main focus needs to be keeping these guys healthy. 

It’s a long season, and with the Terry Glenn saga still continuing, backup QB doubts, and a young receiving corps (Minus T.O.), we are only one injury away from worry.  

I have faith in the coaching staff and the organization to make the right decisions to get this team ready to get started on the right foot. 

I wanna hear from you guys… LOUD AND PROUD!!!!
