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.

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!!!
