IRVING, Texas (AP) Marion Barber was gaining yards and dishing out more punishment than he took, justifying the Dallas Cowboys’ confidence in making him their featured back. Then he went to the locker room with bruised ribs.
In came top draft pick Felix Jones. All he did was run 11 yards for a touchdown on his first carry. A shoelace tackle kept him from going 67 yards for another touchdown on his next carry.
Felix The Cat finished his night with nine carries for sixty- two yards and one touchdown.
That one touchdown was my favorite highlight of Sundays romp over the Cleveland Browns. Theres not many players that get to enter into their memory banks that their first call to duty in the NFL resulted in a touchdown.
It’s exciting to fathom what was going on in his head once Barber walked to the locker room and coach Phillips put him in the game with eleven yards to go for pay-dirt.
Takes me back to some of my childhood memories of Thomas the Train.
I Think I Can…I Think I Can! Whooo Whooo!
Then, in an instant he blasts through the line for the score.
I was extremely excited for him, but my excitement quickly turned to anger after the touchdown.
Number 26 Sean Jones of the Browns got real close to having a bottle of sudz whizzed at his head from across the room for stripping Felix’s first touchdown ball. Luckily Felix got his ball back and I saved myself about twenty five hundred dollars by not chunking my drink through a brand new sixty seven inch TV.
Felix stated to the press that the reality of what had happened didn’t sink in until he started receiving calls from family and friends congratulating him on his accomplishment. Then it really hit him.
Patrick Crayton also stated to the press that he didn’t think Felix has stopped smiling yet!
It was very difficult to find any articles on Felix’s touchdown over the web. He was overshadowed by the Boy’s win, Barbers ribs, and Tom Brady’s season ending injury.
But we here at LoneStarStruck.com got your back Felix!
Congratulations to you! I envy you for the memory that you got locked into your head. You are very blessed. Like I said before, not too many players have the luxury of saying my first play in the NFL was for a touchdown. Cheers to you and cheers for a excellent start to the 2008 season!
Way To Go!
How Bout Dem Cowboys!!!!
