Are We Spoiled As Cowboys Fans?

I thought I would write about this since the Lakers just won their 15th championship.

We all love the Cowboys.  We Bleed Silver and Blue. But are we spoiled as Cowboys fans?

We expect Super Bowl wins every year and we should as Dallas Cowboys fans. But last year the team didn’t make the playoffs with a winning record.  We often reflect on the previous season to say what went wrong. We have that right. It’s our team.

Should we criticize as fans about the “problem” locker room? We weren’t in the locker room with all the players. The media, especially ESPN, likes to bring out the worst of our beloved Cowboys. Don’t get me wrong one of my favorite things to watch is Sportscenter, but I don’t have to listen to them bash the Cowboys. 

I know this is like beating a dead horse. Will the Cowboys be better off this year without T.O.? We will see. But we should be excited about our offense too. Williams, Crayton, Austin, Witten, Jones, Barber and Romo. That’s still an explosive offense.

I put the Cowboys in the same breath as the New York Yankees, Detroit Red Wings, and the L.A  Lakers. We have been to the final game and have won our fair share. The Yankees have won some 26 Championships. We haven’t been that elite yet and maybe never will, but we should be very proud of our team and its accomplishments. 5 Super Bowl wins, 20 division Championships, and 29 playoff appearances. The Cowboys also have 11 Hall of Famers with one more on the way.

The Cowboys have accomplished a lot in their existence, more than a lot of  professional sports teams, and we should be proud of that. I think this team, with the defense playing up to their capability like they did late last season, will make their way to the playoffs once again.  Even with all the “turmoil”  the Cowboys still had a great year and overcame injuries.

Now, the blasting by the Eagles still hurt but I am very excited about this upcoming season Are you?

How Bout Them Cowboys!

Sunday Spot by Fredooch

Hey guys whats up? Sorry I didnt write on my Spot last week but I was busy attending to some personal things but I am back. I got many emails asking me what happened! Geez! I miss one Sunday and you guys freak! Chill out guys! I’m Back! So lets get started with some Tidbits & Notes.

The NFL Combine is going on as we speak. I really dont put too much into this aspect of Pre-NFL Draft workouts. There have been several high profile collegiate athletes who perform at the NFL Combine to stellar reviews only to become NFL Busts. I prefer to look at game situational film and overall performance from the 1st to 4rth quarter if Im in an NFL War room. I just dont get it but anything to parade these future Hall of Famers around is great by NFL standards I guess. Thats my 2 cents on that.

The Dallas Cowboys signed Zach Thomas to a 1 year 3 million dollar deal. Now I know many of you are groping and griping about this signing stating that we have more pressing needs than a has been, concussion prone linebacker. Personally, I think it’s a great signing for 3 reasons. First, It’s CHEAP! Thomas will make 1 million in base, got a 1 million dollar signing bonus and the other million is incentive laden. So that means, Thomas would have to beat out Ayodele for starting positon during training camp, start 16 NFL regular season games, have over 100 tackles, make the Pro Bowl, and be voted an All-Pro probably to make the other million count in his favor. So all this deal is costing us is 2 million dollars up front. Not bad for a 7 time Pro Bowler. Second, Thomas passed a medical evaluation by the Cowboys medical staff. He is at 100 % people. Dallas would not of signed him considering how severe the concussion he suffered last year was and if there were still any lingering effects. Thomas is a tackling machine. If he is anywhere near what he is capable of and performs at that level, we just might of signed the STEAL of free-agency this year. And Third, He is and grew up a HUGE COWBOY FAN. Thomas compared yesterday’s signing to that of how he felt on Draft Day. His family was so ecstatic by the signing as well. Thomas stated he felt so re-energized and ready to go. So you see folks, chill out on this signing. It might be a blessing in disguise.That my 2 cents on that!

I have a HUGE GRIPE to pick with the city of San Antonio. Due to scheduling problems at the Alamodome, the Dallas Cowboys will not hold training camp in San Antonio, Texas this year. I am PISSED people! If the Dallas Cowboys signed a 5 year contract to hold training camp in San Antonio last year wouldn’t that make the city of San Antonio in breach of contract? Or the Alamodome? What puzzles me is that someone with a college degree in the scheduling department at the Alamodome would schedule a Church convention during the time the Cowboys would be in San Antonio during training camp. I just don’t get it. I am sure that the city of San Antonio is going to lose millions of dollars in revenue and tourism because of this fiasco. It’s a shame, really a shame. I have tried repeatedly to get in contact with someone who makes decisions at the Alamodome to no avail. I have tried both emailing and calling them. Can never get a straight answer. Oh well, theres always next year right? That my 2 cents on that! 

Finally, I will be conducting the 1st ever LoneStarStruck NFL Mock Draft next week. Be sure to look out for that one. I will be creative as well folks. I will throw in some draft day trades in there. It’s really not going to be anything like any of the other NFL Mock Drafts the other guys have, so be sure to check it out. Also if any of you guys want to hit me up on myspace, here is the link! Send me a friend invite! Cowboys Alliance . Thats my 2 cents on that! So thats all for now kiddies! See ya next time! Same Cowboys Time! Same Cowboys Place! Same Cowboys Channel!
