Let’s Enjoy Austin Without All the Comparisons

StarStruck GraphicsMiles Austin definitely stole the spotlight on Sunday. He did more than his share, helping the Cowboys trounce the Falcons.

However, one thing is really bugging me. I’ve heard people say he’s the new Michael Irvin, I even read an article claiming he is T.O. with smile.

Give Miles Austin his credit for what he has worked hard to accomplish. There is not much about Miles that reminds me of Irvin or Owens. In fact, not to belittle either of those superstars, but Austin did something they never did… and he did it as a #2 receiver. He currently holds the franchise record for receiving yards in a single game. Of course Irvin and Owens hold their own franchise records. Which essentially proves my point even further.

I know people are just excited and happy about the win and the hope that Austin brings for the Cowboys and I love it! I love when the fans get pumped up and enthusiastic.

I’m sure Miles would feel honored to be compared to such great professional players, but I’d also bet he would be the first to tell you he is nothing like them.

Forget the three different personalities and egos, their playing styles are nothing alike. Not to mention, you may be getting a little bit ahead of yourselves.

There’s nothing wrong with being compared to the likeness of football greats, so maybe I am overreacting.

Either way great work Miles keep it up, we are very proud of you!

Oh yeah, and for the record I never got into the whole “The New Triplets” thing with Romo, Owens and Barber a few years ago. We need to make new memories and dynasties. Embrace the past and learn from it, but don’t try to recreate it, it never works out right.

The Sunday Spot

How the mighty have fallen!

I know this is a Dallas Cowboys blog but I just can’t help myself. The Mighty, Indestructable, Unbeatable and Cheating New England Patriots have fallen. Fallen on the biggest stage in the world nonetheless, Super Bowl 42. The New York Football Giants are World Champions. Putting this whole game in perspective, it now makes me wonder WHAT IF? What if Dallas had beaten the Giants 4 weeks ago? I know I am beating on a dead drum but I just can’t help but to think about what if? Oh well, maybe next year.

It was hilarious how at the end of the game, Bill Belicheat was such a sore loser that he walked off the field with still 2 seconds left to play. Both Tom Coughlin and Bill Belicheat were informed at mid-field by the head referee that there was still one second left on the clock. Even knowing this, Belicheat left the field. This from a man who routinely throughout the 2007 season ran up the score on a number of teams. This from a man that routinely went for it on fourth down during the 2007 season when the game was already won and in their hands. I hate to say it but Karma is a Bitch isn’t it Belicheat. All that reputed classless display your team displayed during the 2007 season finally caught up to you Belicheat.

The even better thing is that New England can now not be considered an NFL Dynasty by lamen terms. Dynasties don’t lose Super Bowls. The Cowboy teams from the 90’s never lost a Super Bowl and the majority of the time man handled whomever they played on the big stage. So there you go New England. As much as I hate to say it, you got exactley what you deserved tonight. And by the display of your fearless leader at the end of the Super Bowl, it just goes to show that even in a loss, Belicheat still shows no class. Thats my 2 cents on that.

I’m tired of hearing about this whole Jessica Simpson saga. There are still Cowboy fans out there that believe that Jessica Simpson is the reason for the whole Cowboys early playoff exit. There is even this guy on my myspace friends list that does nothing but posts anti-Jessica bulletin posts. I got 3 from him on one day! He compares Jessica Simpson to Yoko Ono. Get over it man! Jessica Simpson had absolutely NOTHING to do with the Cowboys early playoff exit plain and simple. It jut wasn’t meant to be this year guys. As much as that still hurts. So for you conspiracy theorists out there, please get a life! I would rather believe that Big Foot exists than that Jessica Simpson even remotely had something to do with the Cowboys loss to the Giants. Thats my 2 cents on that.

How about some interaction? What do you guys think the Cowboys will do with their 2 1st round picks? I am going to go out on a limb here and say we move up. Not necessarily to get McFadden but if he falls to 5 or 6, be sure Jerry will be making phone calls. If they dont trade up, I say they will draft a WR and a CB in the 1st round. Fair enough? Let me know what you guys think! Thats all for now kiddies! See you all Next Sunday! Same Cowboys Time! Same Cowboys Place! Same Cowboys Channel! 

The Future Looks Bright For The Silver And Blue

This is in response to a comment to the blog I posted yesterday. I was going to post it as a comment, but thought I’d share it with a larger audience instead. Here goes…

It’s OK to disagree. We all have the same goal and that is to see the Cowboys build a dynasty.

Dynasties are not built on a year-to-year strategy. They are built on a strategy that employs long term success based on moves that address not only the current needs but future ones as well.

You mentioned that the Cowboys needed an offensive playmaker and I remind you that the Cowboys had one of the best scoring teams in the NFC and certainly the best in their division.

Our collapse last year was on defense, NOT offense.

The Cowboys needed to shore that defense up and they made a major stride in doing that on Draft Day.

We have got ourselves a big playmaker on defense. If you love DeMarcus Ware, then wait until you see Anthony Spencer!

With regard to the 1st round pick in 2008, how will you feel if Cleveland does so bad they finish with a top 5 pick?

Are you saying this was not a great move by the Cowboys?

Believe me Cowboy fans, Jerry Jones is as shrewd a business man as there is in this world.

He built an empire by ensuring that his future would be better than the present.

That’s the way it works in sports as well.

The Cowboys are not looking for a one night stand in 2007. They are looking to reclaim the dynasty that we lost when we started playing from year to year and running in that same old threadmill.

We now have a strategy that will keep this franchise competitive for years to come.

It is built on young stars like Marion Barber (who was acquired in a similar Draft Day trade), Julius Jones, DeMarcus Ware, Bobby Carpenter, Tony Romo and others.

Our future is bright now and will be even brighter in the years to come!

I hope that the 5 people who read this blog will comment on it and let me know what you think!

I LOVE THE COWBOYS!!
