Legends of the Star: Mr. Cowboy, Bob Lilly

Many great players have worn the Dallas Cowboys uniform with pride and distinction during the teams glorious 50 year history. None however, can lay claim to the ultimate team nickname, “Mr. Cowboy” save one, the great Bob Lilly.

Though there are many current and former Cowboys who deserve their due recognition for helping the Dallas Cowboys become and maintain the title of “America’s Team”. However, a strong case can be made that if not for Bob Lilly, it may have never happened.

Many of the newer and younger Cowboy fans have all heard of the great  Bob Lilly at one time or another. They may have even heard that he is considered by most to be the best Defensive Tackle in Cowboy history. A fact that cannot be disputed.

That said, it’s only a small part of Lilly’s amazing legacy and the impact he made on a young franchise that would soon become one of the juggernauts of the NFL.

Bob Lilly was born in 1939 and went to Texas Christian University where he became a star defensive end and was named to the All-America team. As part of this honor he received a camera as one of his awards, a gift that would surely impact the rest of his life.

In 1961 Bob was drafted with first overall pick by the Dallas Cowboys, thus becoming the first ever draft pick in franchise history. He would not disappoint.

Though he was originally drafted as a defensive end, in his third year with the Cowboys, coach Tom Landry switched his position to defensive tackle where he would become one of the best at his position in the NFL for many years to come.

Lilly was a punishing defender and his tough demeanor and sheer determination made him the undisputed leader of the Cowboys famous “Doomsday Defense’. Lilly was so unstoppable, that he was regularly double and triple teamed for the majority of his career.

He was selected to the Pro Bowl a then record 11 times between 1962 and 1973, and Lilly was also a seven time first team All Pro selection.

During his long 14 year Hall of Fame career he was as durable as they came missing only one game to a leg injury.

Lilly was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 1980, his first year of eligibility, and was the first player who spent his entire career with the Cowboys to be elected to the Pro Football Hall of Fame.

He is a member of the All Century Team and in 1999 was ranked number 10 on the “100 Greatest Football Players” by the Sporting News. Sports Illustrated calls him the greatest Defensive Tackle in NFL history.

In addition to being the Cowboys’ first ever draft pick, when all was said and done, “Mr. Cowboy” would also become the first player ever to be inducted into the “Ring of Honor”. He is the only Dallas Cowboy to wear the #74, and is the only number unofficially retired by the team.

Aside from football, Bob Lilly went on to become a noted photographer, a career that stemmed back to the day he began using the camera he won as an All-American. His interests included photographs of magnificent sunsets, majestic mountain ranges and scenic landscapes that captured all the natural beauty of the Midwest. He has launched a successful business where people can buy some of his most famous photographs.

“WOW” What A Weekend

Although I am VERY excited the NFL draft is over and all the analysts saying over and over and over and over (you get what I mean) and over again about who goes where, who is number one, who should pick who, one word says it all. WOW!!!!!!! This has got to be one of the most active NFL drafts I have ever seen. There were trades galore and picks that shocked everyone. Top prospects going before during and after what they were projected to go. In a nut shell, a GREAT football weekend in the middle of the off-season.

First off Kelly did a good job on breaking down who we drafted this year. Although we got a great WR in the first round I kind of wish we would have gone with a little more focus on O-line to start the draft and other positions after that was solidified since we did lose Flozell Adams. But I do think we had a great daft and I am looking forward to an OUTSTANDING “championship” season. With that said, this draft to me seemed much more “emotional” than drafts in the past. As a writer for NFL.COM says, it was the “year of the hug”. There were more players hugging Commissioner Roger Goodell as they came on stage than in years past. Tears flowed, emotions ran high and dreams were fulfilled.

As we all know, Sam Bradford, QB for Oklahoma went number one to the Rams, the best defensive player in the draft, Suh went 2nd to the lions and from then on, it was GAME ON. Out of the 32 teams in the NFL, the draft was pretty well split down the middle between offensive and defensive players. 17 defensive players taken vs. 15 offensive players taken. What really came into play this year was the trades. Before the draft, the Eagles officially became the most ignorant franchise in NFL history trading a top 10 QB to a DIVISION opponent, the Washington Redskins. “BIG BEN” did what he does best and rubbed his name in the dirt just a little more showing his off the field behavior deserves NO respect, causing trade talks. In the end, the Steelers decided they were going to keep him and let his play on the field overlook his pathetic decisions off the field. With the Bears grabbing the best free agency out there in Peppers, they continued to focus on their defense drafting 3 more defensive players and 2 offensive players.

Seattle’s new head coach and former USC head coach Pete Carrol brought back familiar faces in acquiring RB LenDale White from the Titans and traded with the jets getting all pro RB Leon Washington to compliment that backfield. The Raiders decided that the Skins no longer needed Jason Cambell and took them off of their hands. We all know, just like in past drafts, the Patriots were going to be wheeling and dealing. Well coach Bill Belichick boosted up their defense and stealing veteran DT Gerad Warren from the Raiders. This acquisition, along with free agents WR Tory Holt and Defensive Lineman Amon Gordon and their TWELVE (12) picks in this year’s draft improved their team dramatically.

As I research the trades that went on this weekend, I realize I have taken on a task that would take me much more precious time than I thought, and besides, my blog would be 5 pages long. I found a link here that shows all the trades that happened during the draft this year.

With just the information that I’ve shared, you can easily see that this off-season is one of the most active ever. Free agents, trades, and a draft that in my opinion lasted WAY too long. Finally the draft is over, and the training camps can get underway. The newest “Boys” can start to show us what they have. Before we know it pre-season hits us and then, LET THE GAMES BEGIN!!!!

Weekly Game Balls: Week 8

The Cowboys are on a nice three game winning streak, everyone is healthy and all is well this week in the Big D. Sunday the Cowboys face one of their toughest divisional rivals when they travel to Philadelphia to take on the Eagles.

For now let’s focus on the positive that we can take out of last Sunday’s matchup against the battered and bruised Seahawks.

This week’s offensive game ball goes to Tony Romo.

Tony Romo finished the day 21 for 36 with 256 yards and three touchdowns. He hit three different receivers – Williams, Hurd and Austin.

Romo has gone three straight games without an interception, a career best. He is also learning to spread the ball around to whoever is open. He threw the ball to ten different receivers in the Seattle game.

The schedule is about to get tougher through November and December. If Romo can build from these past three games and stay on track, there’s no reason to doubt that he has what it takes to go up against top teams in the league.

Romo is also up for the NFL’s FedEx Player of the Week for the third time this year.

Great work this week Romo!


This week’s defensive/special teams game ball goes to Patrick Crayton.

I know what you’re thinking, Patrick Crayton is a wide receiver. However, he is also our punt returner, and damn good one too.

Patrick Crayton has had a punt return for a touchdown in each of the last two games.

Cowboys had signed return specialist Allen Rossum, however he injured himself in his debut with the team, so Crayton went back to his punt return role.

The amazing thing is Crayton was demoted from his WR starting position with the promotion of Miles Austin and since then has excelled on special teams with his two TDs.

Crayton also has the chance to make NFL history if he gets the chance to return a punt for a TD in Philly this weekend. No NFL player has ever returned for touchdowns in three consecutive games. It won’t be an easy task, and surely the Eagles are aware of the chance for a Cowboy to make history at their home.

Good luck Crayton, we will be cheering you on!


Congratulations to Romo and Crayton for their great contribution to the victory.

Honorable Mention: Keith Brooking continues to impress, he had 8 tackles, 3 assists and a sack.

Emmitt Smith: The Road to Canton 2010

Taken in the first round of the 1990 NFL Draft, Emmitt Smith was grabbed by the Dallas Cowboys at pick 17. The Cowboys had to trade up to take Emmitt Smith who continued to fall down the draft order. In hindsight, those teams are probably still beating themselves up over passing him up.

Emmitt Smith, one of the most decorated players in NFL history, finally becomes eligible for the Pro Football Hall of Fame ballot in 2010. The NFL’s all-time rushing leader is most definitely a lock to be inducted in Canton, Ohio following the footsteps of his teammates Troy Aikman and Michael Irvin.

Cowboy fans are so sure that Emmitt will be inducted, some have begun making their plans to head to Canton in support of Emmitt Smith next summer. A sea of #22 jerseys will fill the crowd as Smith takes the stage in what is surely to be an emotional moment for all.

Emmitt’s amazing list of credentials is topped with a prominent title that he holds alone, all time leading rusher with 18,355 career yards. He dons three Super Bowl rings, along with a Super Bowl MVP title. Smith is 2nd all time in touchdowns with 175, plus a record 11 straight 1,000 yard seasons and holds the record for most touchdowns in a single season with 25 in 1995 and most career rushing touchdowns with 164. The list goes on and on.

In this day and age when football news is covered with scandals and criminals its good to remember the men who lived for the game and did everything right. Every time Emmitt Smith put on his helmet and went on the field he gave it his all no matter the circumstances.

Emmitt SmithOne of the hardest things for Cowboys to ever watch came at the end of his career when Smith left Dallas and played in Arizona for a year.

At the end of the 2005 season just before the Super Bowl, Emmitt Smith announced his retirement. He left the Cardinals and signed a one day contract with the Dallas Cowboys so that he could retire a Cowboy.

The retirement press conference video will still bring a tear to your eyes.

“It’s been a tremendous ride,” said Smith. “My 15 years, my 15 minutes of fame, is up.”
“You don’t know how much this star really means to me.”
“I’m moving on to another chapter in my life,” he said. “That’s a chapter I’m looking forward to.”

“It’s been a tremendous ride,” said Smith. “My 15 years, my 15 minutes of fame, is up.”

“You don’t know how much this star really means to me.”

“I’m moving on to another chapter in my life. That’s a chapter I’m looking forward to.”

The great Emmitt Smith will always hold a special place in the heart of Cowboys fans.

These days while the Cowboys are running an effective three-back attack with three different styles, it really makes you realize how amazing #22 was to do it all alone.

His legacy will live on forever and there is no debate that it will be permanently enshrined in Canton, Ohio on Saturday August 7th, 2010.

Cowboys National Monument

If there was a national monument built for the Cowboys, what would it be? I think it should be just like Mount Rushmore.

Lets call it Mount Cowboys. Now we have to decide who we think should be on this national monument. If any Cowboys player or staff member had an impact on the Cowboys they should be on this monument. Here are my choices and why I think they deserve to be on Mount Cowboys.

My first choice is the legendary coach Tom Landry. Landry had 20 consecutive winning seasons, 2 Super Bowl titles and was 1966 NFL Coach of the Year. He was the only coach the Cowboys knew until Jerry Jones took over.

My second choice is Roger Staubach. Tom Landry’s quarterback throughout the 69′ to 79′ seasons. He also won 2 Super Bowl titles for coach Landry. Roger was a 6 time Pro-Bowler. Earn the nickname of “Captain Comeback” for many of his come from behind victories.

The third choice for the Mount Cowboys monument is number 22, Emmitt Smith. He is the NFL’s All-Time leading rusher. Just that enough earns him a spot on the monument. Emmitt was elected to the Pro-Bowl 8 times. He was the first player in NFL history to have 5 straight seasons with at least 1,400 rushing yards.

My final and last choice for the Mount Cowboys is Jerry Jones. I know, Some people don’t like Mr. Jones, but what he did was made the Cowboys a dynasty in the 90’s. His buying and trading of Free Agents made all the moves to win 3 championships. He will do everything he can to ensure the Cowboys go to or at least have a shot at being a contender for the Super Bowl. It will be very interesting in the new stadium and the season without T.O.

Here is my choices for the fictional Mount Cowboys monument. If anybody else has another person who deserves to be on this monument let me know. I came up with this as a way to tribute to the Cowboys from past and present. I hope you enjoy this blog as much as I had fun writing it.

The Quiet Days of Offseason

A month away from the NFL draft and everything in Cowboys land seems a bit quiet for my taste. No more T.O. drama, no more Romo/Jessica sightings, no more throw Wade under the bus talk. Seems too quiet doesn’t it?

First off let me talk about my boy Demarcus Ware. I am still wondering why the Jones boys haven’t signed him to a long extension yet. Ware should become the richest player in NFL history within the next couple of weeks though. The guy deserves it. He was about half a step this year of having about 30 sacks. The NFL even took one away from him. James Harrison is good but he isn’t nowhere near Demarcus Ware’s playing level, 101 yard interception return for a touchdown in the Super Bowl or not.
Some Terrell Owens news. Ugh! Terrell Owens states that Jerry Jones reneged on his word to keep him in Dallas and that Stephen Jones and a couple others were behind his surprising release. Let me say this one last time. I actually loved Terrell Owens on this team. There is no way in God’s green earth you can convince me that Roy Williams, the receiver, is a legitimate # 1 receiver in the NFL. He hasn’t proven it, Detroit or not. I think way too many fans are being way too optimistic about Roy Williams. Sure he has better hands but he can’t stretch the field and he isn’t the hardest worker in the world. I really hope he proves me wrong. Back to T.O.. Yes, Jerry probably did back stab Terrell Owens to an extent but I really think this helps Romo more than anybody else on this team. This is going to be a make or break year for Romo. It’s his team now.
The NFL schedule does not come out until later this spring but sources say that Dallas will open Week 1 in Denver in the FOX 3 PM slot. They will also host the Oakland Raiders on Thanksgiving. I think playing in Denver Week 1 is gonna be awesome. Sources also said that Dallas will not open in the new stadium until Week 3 either in a Sunday night or Monday night game. I bet it’s either Philly or the Giants. On an unrelated note, sources state Jerry Jones is asking the NFL  for permission to change the navy blue jerseys (technically home jerseys) for the 2011 season to commemorate the hosting of the super bowl in the new stadium. I don’t know if this is a good thing or bad or to what extent the jersey change will take effect. I guess we will not find out until the 2011 season.
Dallas Cowboys Coach Wade Phillips stated that it takes a full 4 seasons before anyone can judge a coach in the NFL. San Francisco 49ers Coach Mike Singletary stated when told of this that he thought this was a win now league. I couldn’t of said it better myself. Thats why Jerry Jones should of fired Wade Phillips when this season ended. I couldn’t help but shake my head when I read that. I wonder what Jerry Jones thought of that statement by Wade.  Let’s make our # 1 receiver the scapegoat I guess and cut him. Oh didn’t we already do that?
Training Camp in San Antonio. Guys I can’t wait. I already asked for that first week off of work so I can be there. It’s gonna be awesome. See ya there Shelby!!!      

Why Jerry Needs To Fire The GM

First off let me say I love Jerry Jones as the owner of the Dallas Cowboys, his love and commitment to win is evident in the way he speaks about the Dallas Cowboys, now with that said:

Since Jerry bought the Dallas Cowboys 20 years ago he has had six head coaches two of them seemingly had some control over personnel, the rest were just Jerry’s puppets. When Jimmie Johnson was the head coach we had some outstanding drafts taking Aikman, Emmitt and Maryland as his first round picks, which led us to 3 super bowls, but after Jerry’s ego wouldn’t allow Jimmie to have more power  or take credit for the success. They parted ways and along came the puppets Switzer , Gailey , and Campo the drafts were horrible during these years taking players like Quincy Carter, Shante Carver, Dwayne Goodrich, David Lafleur and Sherman Williams with our first picks.  If any general manager in football had drafts like these he would be long gone wouldn’t he? luckily in 2003 I thought Jerry was checking his ego finally when he hired Parcells who is one of the best talent evaluators in NFL history. Parcells drafts included most of the incredibly talented team you see on the field today including James, Ware, Barber, Newman, and of course signing Romo.

There are only two teams in football that the owners act like the GM the Cowboys and the Raiders. Luckily we had  Parcells for three years or we would be right where the Raiders are, terrible. Jerry’s problem as a GM is that he has no eye for talent and that he always wants to make a big splash. The drafts between Johnson and Parcells were just horrible, then going after players like Deion, Eddie George, Chris Warren, Joey Galloway and most recently Pacman, T.O.  and Roy Williams. Doesn’t this sound like someone who just wants a big splash rather than keeping, let’s say the two first rounder’s for Galloway and building a solid team? The examples are endless during the puppet years and that’s the reason we haven’t won number six. Right now we have the talent to win number six but that’s not going to last forever. Jerry please fire yourself as general manager.

Boys 4 Life

Keepin’ the Faith


  • Led the NFL in touchdown passes over the past 2 seasons with 62.
  • Led the NFL in 4th quarter passing efficiency in 2008.
  • 2nd in NFL history with a 300 yard passing game every 2.44 starts.
  • 27-12 career record as a starter (.692 winning percentage).

Yep, you guessed it. Your Dallas Cowboys’ own Tony Romo. Your prize for the correct answer?? A n
ewwwwwwww car!! Well, not really, but it seems as if there should be some type of award given for anyone to have optimism or solid faith in Tony. I know that is probably unfair, because there are many, many fans who still are in Romo’s corner, unwavering in their faith to #9. I am one of those fans.

I guess the only point of this short piece is not to start a war of words or to crucify those with their own opinions, but to try and poke a few holes in the Romo is a celebrity quarterback who can’t play and is not a competitor or a leader conspiracy that seems to abound these days. It’s easy to jump on the pile right now, especially with our last memories being from that terrible TEAM effort in Philly (I shudder just to think of it).

The bottom line: there are teams in the NFL trotting out such spares as Kyle Orton, JaMarcus Russell, Tarvaris Jackson and J.T. O’ Sullivan, etc. We should be thanking the NFL gods everyday for blessing us with a talent like Romo. Do I need to even go through the tried and  true list of Cowboys QB’s after Aikman and before Romo? I didn’t think so.

Okay, he is 0-2 in the playoffs and has struggled at times in December. There, I admitted that he is not perfect and has room to improve. Sounds alot like me in my job, and my life for that matter. 

Let’s all just take a deep breath, try and forget the past (because we certainly can’t change it) and take time to be thankful that we have a winning team, a competitve team led by one of the top 5 starting QB’s in the league. We need to make some changes, Romo included, but this team is not far away…….

Trust me.

Cowboys Fan for Life – TD


P.S. For the interview that I watched and was inspired by this evening, click on the following link: 


Fitzgerald Having Amazing Playoff Run

All I can say is that I have been totally stunned at Fitzgeralds perfomance during the playoffs so far. I was browsing the NFL site and saw these stats and facts and thought i would share them with you all. As a Cowboy fan it sickens me to see two of the teams that knocked us out of playoff contention in the Super Bowl this year. But I will have to say go Cardinals and I also have to admit that Fitzgerald is my favorite Non-Cowboy player in the NFL.

Arizonas Larry Fitzgerald is on a Playoff run that matches any other wide receiver in NFL playoff history.

Fitzgerald followed up two 100-yard receiving games in the Cardinals’ first two playoff games with another outstanding day in the NFC Championship Game against the Eagles, finishing with nine receptions for 152 yards and three touchdowns.

His prolific run during his first postseason puts Fitzgerald in exclusive company. Fitzgerald’s 419 receiving yards during the 2008 playoffs are the most in a single postseason, since 1970, as well as the most by any player in NFL history during his first three career playoff games.

Most receiving yards, single postseason
2008Larry FitzgeraldCardinals3419
1988Jerry Rice49ers3409
2003Steve SmithPanthers4404
1983Charlie BrownRedskins3401

The rest of Fitzgerald’s 2008 playoff numbers also stack up against the best. His five touchdown receptions rank second all-time (behind Jerry Rices’ six during the 1988 playoffs), and his 23 receptions are tied for third all-time, trailing New England’s Wes Welker (2007) and Carolina’s Steve Smith (2005), who each totaled 27.

Fitzgerald has one more game to reach the top of each of these lists. So lets all root for Fitzgerald on Feb.1 to get all these records. Also for the Cardinals to stomp Pittsburgh into the ground.

GO CARDINALS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

So Long and Farewell Texas Stadium

This place has come a long way!!!

From Big Tex to Bob Lilly. From great leaders like Tom Landry, Roger Staubach, Tony Dorsett, “Bullet” Bob Hayes, and the Triplett’s… Troy Aikman, Emmitt Smith and Micheal Irvin. Texas Stadium will always be remembered as not only the stadium with the hole in the roof, but she is a star among stars.

Showcasing some of the most memorable moments in NFL history. From Tony Dorsett’s record breaking 99 yard touchdown run against the Minnesota Vikings to Emmitt Smith’s rush into history becoming the NFL’s all-time leading rusher. It is also home to 3 NFC championship game victories, and some of the world’s greatest fans, including the late Wilford “Crazy Ray” Jones, the greatest fan ever!

It is home to not only the NFL’s elite, but the world’s most beautiful and entertaining Dallas Cowboys cheerleaders! She even appeared in the intro on the 80’s drama “Dallas”.

And who can forget the memorable performances for the Salvation Army campaign on Thanksgiving day, and the electric performances and appearances by such stars like Michael Jackson, Madonna, the Eagles, Garth Brooks, George Strait, Carrie Underwood, Kelly Clarkson, and the Jonas Brothers. Not to mention today’s stars like Tony Romo, Terrell Owens, and Marion Barber. It is also the place where the legendary quarterback Brett Favre never won a game.

There is only one thing left to say about Texas Stadium. “It is home” and will always be home. It’s the signature to stars and a place where lives were changed and legends were made. She will always be missed hosting games to the world’s greatest football team ever – The Dallas Cowboys!

So long and farewell Texas Stadium.

Gene Upshaw the Ambassador of the Game

Like many, I awoke this morning to hear the sad news that Gene Upshaw had passed away. I did not know Upshaw personally or anything, but I watched him so much as a Raider, I feel like I lost a friend.  He was a legendary Raider that prevented would be tacklers from getting to the quarterback and consistently, with Art Shell, opened gaping holes for a running game that was nearly unstoppable.

Seven Pro Bowls, eleven all league or all conference selections, he was a pivotal cog on an offensive line that made it to the Super Bowl three times and won two while he held down the fort left of center.  It nearly seems appropriate that the Raiders’ and possibly the NFL’s greatest player to ever wear the number 63 also passed away at the age of 63.

Upshaw is part of the NFL’s 75 Year Anniversary All Time team, was the captain of the Raiders offensive unit for eight years.  During the fifteen years he spent as a Raider, the team went to the playoffs 11 times, won 8 divisional titles, one AFL Championship, two AFC titles, and two world championships.  He’s the only player in NFL history to participate in three different Super Bowls in three different decades.

This writer spent many Sundays watching Upshaw and the great Art Shell sweep right or sweep left and throwing lead blocks for Raider runners. It was sight for the football fan’s eyes.

Later after his playing days were over Upshaw was pivotal in getting many things done for the players in NFL as head of the (NFLPA) National Football League Players Association.

Player’s salaries have risen to unbelievable amounts while protected with pensions after three years of service. A rookie can now make a league minimum of $200,000.00 which was never the case when Upshaw came into the league. Over the years Upshaw worked behind the scenes and helped make the NFL one of the best systems in all of professional sports.

I think one of the greatest accomplishments Upshaw achieved as chief of the NFLPA is that the NFL marketing arm is both the owners and players walking hand in hand.

Gene Upshaw promoted all this unity between the players and the owners. He always worked on the belief that what was good for the players was good for the league and what was good for the league was good for the players. This was a tough act to balance, but if you grew up watching Gene Upshaw you knew he was a tough guy and could carry the load.

So tonight when we watch our heroes’ on the gridiron, take a moment to remember Gene Upshaw. The player, the pro-bowler, the NFL player executive and the man.

No Country For Old Men…With Bad Knees

I think everyone would agree that getting old sucks. I turned 40 on Monday so I know first-hand the magnitude in which it can suck! But on the bright side, the older you get the more memories you have. I have tons.

For instance, watching The Doomsday Defense dismantle the Denver Broncos and former Cowboy Craig Morton in Super Bowl XII. Then after the game I watched as Harvey Martin crushed an "Orange Crush" pop can during the locker room celebration.

Then there are not so fond memories like Super Bowl XIII against The Steelers. The horrible pass interference call against Benny Barnes when his feet got tangled with Lynn Swann’s which led to a Steelers score. And of course Jackie Smith. The drop. Dallas should have been the first team to win 3 Super Bowls. WE WERE ROBBED!!

Of course there was "The Catch". Montana to Clark in the NFC Championship. Should be called "The Lucky Catch". I also remember "The Fumble" by Danny White, deep in 49er territory on the ensuing drive.

And I could write a 10,000 word essay with one hand tied behind my back about the greatest dynasty in NFL history. Who might that be you ask? The 90’s Cowboys of course. This team could have and SHOULD have won at LEAST 4 in a row.

But this blog isn’t as much about my memories as it is about what it must be like to be an NFL player in the twilight of your career. Specifically Terry Glenn. Glenn’s career has had its ups and downs. He’s only played a full 16 weeks in 3 of the 12 seasons he’s been in the league so far. With 2 of those being for The Cowboys.

I think Glenn is a great player. Very professional. Super hands. Bad wheels. He’s struggled with injuries throughout his career and now time is not on his side. This will be his 13th season if he even plays at all. I personally think he should sign the $500,000 injury settlement. This way everyone is covered. Seriously, Jerry Jones could just cut the guy and he’d get nothing. He can’t pass a freakin physical and Jones is offering him 500 G’s! Not quite as sweet as the deal Glenn got last year. $5 million for 4 plays.

I feel for Terry Glenn. To a point. But he’s almost 34 with a huge bank account and he’s had the honor of playing for the greatest sports franchise on the planet. But he has bad knees. I’m 40 living paycheck to paycheck and I drive a truck for a living. And I also have bad knees.

Terry, you have my sympathies…
