Keith Davis Signed With Miami

Another Cowboy leaves Dallas for Miami. Safety Keith Davis signed with the Dolphins yesterday in what they are calling a "depth" move by Bill Parcells. Davis agreed to a two-year $3.5 million deal.

At age 29, Keith Davis is excellent on special teams but never developed fully as a starting safety. In addition, Davis experienced a torn pectoral muscle and opted for surgery to repair it after the season ended.

Do you remember "the kiss"?
Well if you didn’t see this move coming I don’t know what to tell ya


Ferguson Traded to Miami

Today from

The Cowboys are trading Ferguson to the Dolphins for a 2009 sixth-round pick, and the teams will swap sixth-rounders this year. Dealing Ferguson clears about $2.4 million on this year’s salary cap.

Ferguson, an 11-year veteran, signed a five-year deal with Dallas that included a $9 million signing bonus in 2005. He missed nearly the entire 2008 season with a torn biceps tendon suffered in the regular-season opener against the Giants, however, and became expendable when Jay Ratliff filled in capably for the final 15 games and signed a five-year, $20.5 million extension in December.


Nice move! When Ferguson got injured we were worried but Jay Ratliff did more than fill his shoes, and in the process earned himself a nice contract. Now we opened up a roster spot and have more money to deal.

Why I am Rooting for the Giants in Superbowl XLII

Yes, I know this is a Cowboys fan site and yes, I know many of my Cowboy friends could care less about who comes out on top in this year’s Superbowl. However, I have decided to throw my support behind the Giants, and here’s why:

First of all, New England is a great team – I will give them that. Are they the greatest team of all time?  I’m not ready to place that accolade upon their head. They do have the greatest regular season record of all time (Remember the Dolphins season in 1972 was only 14 games long).  Are they invincible? I definitely don’t believe that. I have seen them struggle from time to time this season and I think that even the mighty Patriots have their weaknesses that can be exploited.

My biggest problem with the Patriots, is that while I think they are a great team, I cringe every time I hear an analyst on ESPN or some other sports show, gushing with orgasmic delight when they talk about this team. Yes, they’re good, but c’mon people… Here‘s a towel. Clean yourself off and let‘s try to be objective. They are not a machine and they are not without their faults.

The Giants, on the other hand, are a team many feel don’t deserve to be in the Superbowl. They didn’t play consistently throughout the season and couldn’t even win their division. However, they have done what it takes down the stretch and have put together an impressive record on the road.  Maybe they don’t deserve it, but it’s hard to argue with the fact that they’re still there while the players of 30 other teams are home enjoying chips, dip, and a cold one on the couch.

I have argued for years that the NFC East is consistently the best division in football. I realize that there are years when they don’t produce threatening teams like they have in other years, but on a year in, year out basis, the NFC East usually fields some pretty tough teams. Which means that for the Cowboys to win the East is an impressive achievement in and of itself.

My argument here is, if the Giants win the Superbowl, it buttresses the Cowboy claim to a great season (although I don‘t think we need any other validation). We beat the Giants twice during the regular season, and took the division title. Yes, we lost to the Giants in the post-season when it counted most, but the team to knock us out was one of our own. Three out of four NFC East teams made the playoffs, and I think that’s impressive. For an NFC East team to win the Superbowl, just shows that the young NFC East Champion Cowboys are a team to be reckoned with next year.

I didn’t write this blog to convince you to root for the Giants. I am just trying to explain my reasoning. I really don’t care who you root for in the Superbowl, just as long as you continue to support the Cowboys with your heart and soul.

What I would like to convince you of is this:  Don’t be like the Cowboy-haters out there. You know, those people who can’t bear to give us credit when credit is due. The Cowboys are a polarizing team – it seems you either love them or hate them. There isn’t much ground in between. The haters always want to find fault, downplay our achievements, and come up with reasons as to why we aren’t the team our record shows.  Let us not be that way, Cowboy fans.  We should rise above the pettiness and hate for the accomplishments of other teams. Whichever team wins this Superbowl should be deserving of our congratulatory kudos.  We’re above the bitterness, snide comments, and hate-filled talk.  We’re Cowboys. Our day will come….

Man It Feels Good To Be A Cowboys Fan

Whats up StarStruckers. I want to take a few seconds and introduce myself. I’m Chuck, Die Hard Cowboys fan and the newest addition to the LoneStarStruck team.  I’m honored to be associated with all you fantastic Cowboys fans out there and I’m eagerly excited to meet each and everyone of you. I hope you guys enjoy my posts and I look forward to hearing your thoughts on this outstanding season.

Can you believe this 2007 NFL Season that we’re having? I’m in total awe with each team in the league thus far. Even the poor Dolphins that hadn’t won a game yet.  There’s been so many things going on in the league this year its leading me to believe that this has been one of the greatest seasons I have seen.  All time NFL records getting broken left and right, teams changing QB’s like they change socks, fines for celebrating in the end zone after touchdowns (that has only made them better), and need I mention all the franchise records the Cowboys are shattering? Just really hate that with all the good things going on this year we have had to lose a few great players to unnecessary crimes. It puts a damper on the great things happening. But on the upside it has brought even the worst of rivals to come together. That shows enormous class!

Lets get geared up for Sunday shall we?

If going into Sunday’s game being on the verge of clinching the NFC East division title for the first time since 1998 wasn’t enough motivation for a win, Bradie James and Terence Newman have some other motivation for this win.  John Kitna ran his mouth last year after the Lions beat the Cowboys in a meaningless last game of the season. Kitna called James out saying he looked like he didn’t know where he was at during the game! My money goes toward James letting Kitna know exactly where he’s going to be at! Kitna also called out T-New saying he’s no Trufont! I also bet Kitna won’t be throwing Newman’s way!

With some help from some other teams losing Sunday we are also on the verge of obtaining a first round bye in the playoffs as well.  Can You Feel it Fans?  Cowboys are smoking hott, and they’re looking better every week!  I just can’t wait till Terry Glenn comes back! There will be no stopping us!

Man It Feels Good To Be A Cowboys Fan!!

QUICK HIT-   Tony Romo was named NFC offensive player of the Week!

The Cowboys have now claimed a weekly award five times this season, the most since 1993 (seven).  Romo has a chance to break Roger Staubach’s 36-year-old club record for highest quarterback rating in team history of 104.8 in 1971, a Super Bowl season for the Cowboys.

Other team records Romo can achieve this season include most completions in a season. With 252, Romo needs 83 in the last four games to break Danny White’s record of 334 in 1983. Romo (3,352) is also just 629 yards from breaking White’s single-season record of 3,980 passing yards, also set in 1983.

How Bout Them Cowboys!!!

Future Looks Bright


The future is looking bright in Dallas. Norv Turner spent the day with Jerry Jones and Bill Parcells interviewing for what could be the biggest move of his career. Turner has an impressive resume and a history with the Dallas Cowboys that could be the decision maker. He has been the head coach of the Washington Redskins and the Oakland Raiders, and the Offensive Coordinator for the Dallas Cowboys, Miami Dolphins, San Diego Chargers and currently the San Franscisco 49ers.

Turner was with the Cowboys when they won back-to-back Super Bowls in 1992 and 1993. He guided hall of famer Troy Aikman during those years and could be quite an influence on the young Tony Romo. Alongside the new Offensive Coordinator Jason Garrett, Turner could help lead this team to a championship season. Garrett worked under Turner in the 90s and Turner tried to get Garrett on his team in Oakland. The two could work wonders for the Dallas offense. Which only leaves one question… Defense anyone?
