Football On My Mind…….

Hey guys, just a few things to discuss. First, I would like to congratulate the Arizona Cardinals and Pittsburgh Steelers on reaching Super Bowl 43. Much props to both teams. Honestly, I am pulling for the Cards on this one. On a side note as well, Imagine if Terrell Owens would of pulled that Boldin Act yesterday after they won. ESPN would of been all over that. On to the Boys………..

First I would LOVE to say that Demarcus Ware was, to put it eloquently, ROBBED. I will give James Harrison as much props as the next guy but he is nowhere near Ware’s capability. In Harrison, you get a great passrusher. In Ware, you get the complete package. This just goes to show the unwavering Bias that is thrown, or has been thrown for decades at your Dallas Cowboys. I was quite honestly shocked that Emmitt Smith won the league MVP in 1995 and thats when I thought girls were still icky!! Demarcus, you dominated the defensive side of the ball all year long. You deserved it more than anyone in the football land. Kind of ironic that Ware wins the Dick Butkus award for the NFL’s best linebacker. I thought that was Harrison, oh wait….

Second, Terrell Owens is one of my favriote players on this team. I honestly believe ESPN is on a witch hunt to make T.O. a cancer. He is the only guy all year that showed any emotion on the field when this went wrong. For you Cowboy fans out there wanting T.O. out i can only say this. If T.O. is gone next year and we dont replace him, this team doesnt win 8 games next year. Easy as that. Yes, T.O. is getting old by NFL standards but the guy is still the best receiver on this team. Unless Dallas releases T.O. and then signs a Pro Bowl reciever somehow then I would probably be ok with it, but quite honestly it aint happening. Terrell Owens will be a Dallas Cowboy next year. I would be shocked if he isnt. I just got my authentic T.O. jersey this year too. Damn It!!

Third, Ray Lewis is gonna be a free agent and there is talk Jerry Jones is gonna go after the guy big time. I say, I LOVE IT. Ray Lewis is exactley what this defense needs. I know I am gonna get alot of slack for this but I really love the Ravens defense. Its a punch you in the mouth and point and laugh at you in the face kind of defense we need. They are nasty, mean and play as one unit. Thats all due to Ray Lewis. The guy plays with alot of emotion and wears his heart on his sleeve. He makes average players around him great. I would honestly as well be shocked if Baltimore lets him go and doesnt franchise him, but I would love to see the guy in a Cowboy uniform. Hey Mosh, get those Ray Lewis jerseys orders ready for just in case.

Fourth, Brian Stewart was fired. Big Deal. I believe the real problem of the Cowboys awkward 2008 season is deeper than Brian Stewart. Wade Phillips for one should not be coaching this team. Wade Phillips is an awesome defensive coach but when it comes to Head Coaching the guy sucks. With this many Stars on this team, you have to have a disciplinarian. A Jimmy Johnson / Bill Cowher type of coach. Its very sad, frustrating, depressing and everything else x100 the way our season went. And every week after a loss, Phillips just sugar coated everything. I would love to see the Cowboys bring in Mike Martz to see if he can recreate the Greatest Show on Turf. The guy also doesnt take bullcrap from anybody. Thats not gonna happen cause Garrett wasnt offered a head coaching job anywhere.

And Fifth, finally, I am ecstatic the Boys will be in San Antonio for training camp this year. I will be there for a whole week. Can’t wait for that to happen. Thats all for now.  

The Sunday Spot by Fredooch

Hey guys, whats up? Well a few things on today’s agenda. First off, by the end of the day today, the 2007 season officially will be over and all things associated with it. Once the clock strikes 0:00 in Honolulu, we can start looking forward to free agency and 2008, which starts at the end of the month. So let’s do that, who’s going and who’s coming to Big D?

I have stated and will reiterate that Jerry Jones will go all out this off-season in free agency to make the Cowboys practically indestructable in 2008 for 3 main reasons.

  • Last year at Texas Stadium. With so much history and tradition associated with Texas Stadium and all the great Dallas Cowboys teams that have come and gone, Jerry Jones would love nothing more but to leave Texas Stadium as Super Bowl Champs. Opening up at the new 90,000 plus stadium in Arlington as Super Bowl Champs would give it the nostalga and carry on the tradition of Cowboys football. Now, anyone want to tell me that Jerry Jones isn’t thinking this way? 
  • Wade Phillips is on the HOT SEAT. With all these new coaches coming to Big D, you can’t help but think that Jerry Jones is assembling these former NFL coaches to come in to Big D with the WIN NOW mentality. For any of you that think Wade Phillips has absolutely anything to do with this process, well you all just need to come back from fantasyland. If the Boys don’t win Super Bowl 43, Wade Phillips will be looking for another job in 2009 and in steps Jason Garrett.
  • The loss to the Giants in the divisional round has been made even harder due to the fact that the Giants won the Super Bowl. As I stated before, Jerry Jones took the loss to the Giants pretty DAMN HARD. Jerry was even giving away tickets to the NFC Championship game in Dallas to players before the Giants game. Now knowing that, do you think Jerry isn’t waking up in the middle of night in a cold sweat nowadays dreaming of a Super Bowl lost? I would be SHOCKED if Jerry doesnt make some wheeling and dealing to land Samuel or Trufant if he isn’t franchised.

Those are the three main reasons I believe Jerry Jones will have Dallas primed to be Super Bowl favriotes come July. Way too much is on the line for Jerry and he knows it. Several media outlets have started reporting this same kind of reaction coming from Jerry, so it isn’t only myself that sees this coming. If they are available, expect either Trufant or Samuels to be wearing silver and blue next season. I am going out on a limb here and am going to guarantee that. Only if they are available though.

Cowboys safety Ken Hamlin has been trying to persuade both Samuels and Trufant to come to Dallas by sending them lavishing gifts in Hawaii while they are there for the Pro Bowl. Isn’t that Jerry’s job? It wouldn’t shock or surprise me as well if Dallas doesn’t trade away it’s draft picks for already established players. I think that if Arizona comes to Dallas or vice-versa and inquiries are made about Larry Fitzgerald, I think both Arizona and Dallas can work some kind of trade only if Fitzgerald agrees to a re-worked contract extension to make this trade possible. Keep your eye on that. Arizona has a huige financial burden with Fitzgerald and Im sure they are shopping him.

Here are some other names that might land in Big D via free agency or trade on draft day. Denver WR Javon Walker, I think we can get him for a 2nd or 3rd round pick. Chicago WR Benard Berriman in free agency. Patriots WR Randy Moss in free agency. Now don’t be shocked but if New England doesnt franchise the guy, don’t be surprised if in March he comes to Dallas on a visit with Jerry Jones. And San Diego CB Drayton Florence in free agency.  


Now, I have been toying with the fact that I want to get into the Graphics Design industry and have novicely started out trying to learn both Adobe Photoshop and Corel Draw on my own. I plan on going to school in the fall here at the local technical institute to learn the trade but I have been recieving pointers from both Kelly and Tiffany here at StarStruck. Thanks guys, love ya! I have had Photoshop for maybe a month or so now and Corel Draw for two months now. Both these programs cost me about the value of a good car down payment but I think in the end it will be worth it. I have also changed my myspace page to all things Dallas Cowboys and have created an alter-ego for it called ‘Cowboys Alliance’.

For those of you who are on my Myspace friends list you have maybe started recieving my bulletins of Cowboys graphics I have made. Although they are not even remotely anywhere near the quality of LoneStarStruck or StarGazzing Graphics, I think they arent that bad considering I am only a month or so into this thing. If you have any Cowboys graphic requests please send them to me at my Myspace page and I will get right on them. Any of you who want to be on my Myspace friend’s list here is my link: Fredooch. There are also a few graphics here that I made, hope you enjoy them and you can find more on my Myspace page.

So thats all for now kiddies. See you next time! Same Cowboys Place! Same Cowboys Time! Same Cowboys Channel!
