Emmitt Will Always Be My Number One Back

StarStruck GraphicsAn hour commute really gives you time to think and relax on the way to work. It can also give you time to get really fired up. This morning on my local sports radio, The Sports Animal, the two guys on air decide to bring up Emmitt Smith and tell their listeners that they wouldn’t even put him in the top 10-15 greatest running backs of all time. Are you freaking kidding me?!

See, this is why I don’t listen to their station regularly (much like ESPN). How in the hell do you not put him even in the top 5 when he is the NFL’s leading rusher? The record books say he’s the best, the numbers don’t lie.

I just wonder how some of these idiots get their jobs. To me Emmitt Smith will always be number one, and I can understand if not everyone agrees with me. But even those who don’t put him number one have the sense to put him second or third.

I guess we just have to adjust to all of the nonsense we are going to hear this week with Emmitt going into the Hall of Fame this weekend.

Thanks for listening to me rant, now back to work.

Where Are The Haters Now

First of all I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday season and want to wish you all a very happy new year. I hope you all have a great 2010. Sorry I have not been writing but every family needs a vacation once in a while and ours was wonderful.  Like almost everyone else I have more than 1 new year’s resolution. My main resolution this year is to go to a Super Bowl party for the Cowboys next month. The way they are playing right now, that is one new year’s resolution that will NOT be broken.

As for the game what an outstanding performance our Boys have been putting up the last few weeks. Tony Romo is playing to the top of his potential shutting all the critics up each and every week. Yes he had one interception against the Eagles, but I feel that if a ball is tipped at the line of scrimmage and then caught, that should not be counted against the quarterback. Not his fault just a great defensive play.

The defense played great but I do have one small concern: the wide receivers for the Eagles were pretty wide open a lot during the game. We really need to tighten up that defense because they will not be dropping those passes every week.

I love to go hang out at the local sports lounge where the “haters” have hounded me all year long saying the Boys suck, Romo is sorry, they will not win anything, won’t even make the playoffs. I walked into the SAME place Sunday night after the Cowboys shut out the Eagles and those SAME people were high-fiving me and giving our Cowboys props, and one of them even said they actually have a chance of making it through the playoffs this year. Yes, I made him say that 4 more times haha.

So to all the bandwagon fans out there, who were criticizing the Cowboys week in and week out, who never gave them a chance to do anything, I simply have one thing to say:


MBIII ….what’s he worth?

So I hear that The Cowboys have offered Marion Barber 30 million and he wants more. There’s been much discussion on local sports talk about this.

Is Barber worth as much as someone like LT? I know all Cowboy fans love Barber, myself included. But does a RB within a proven 2 back system, that is most likely going to continue to be a 2 back system, expect to get paid as much as a single star RB?

Would he last more than 3 years if he got pounded on as much as an LT? Can’t he stay in the league longer if he’s only out there half the time? Should he take the 30 mill and count his blessings?

Things have been too quiet around here at and I think this is a good topic to make some noise.

Whaddayu guys and gals think about this? Let me hear from you!!
