the Cowboys and graduates of the University of Miami are passe.
ESPN has to get with the program and ensure that Mike doesn’t go out there embarassing himself and the network with those awful puff pieces. Last time I checked, THA U was on THA Ropes. LSU beat them like a drum. Florida State beat them again. Virginia Tech may be looking for some action. They are perilously close to being called the Sugar Canes again. As for Cowboys, there isn’t much to be said that hasn’t already been said – too often.
There is no news in Dallas. They simply have to play. Making the playoffs would be a start. What kind of questions should Michael Irvin be asking when he does his inevitable interview with the Cowboys?
1) How will the loss of Larry Allen as an anchor for the offensive line impact your ability to run the ball?
2) How will Marion Barber be used? Are you concerned about Julius Jones’ durability? [Tell us why you didn’t draft Stephen Jackson again.]
3) Do you believe Terrance Newman will emerge as an elite cover corner this year?
4) Last year, your secondary was beaten twice by Santana Moss. What’s the plan to keep something like that from happening again?
5) The NFC East promises to be a super competitive division this year. How comfortable are you with your field goal kicking situation?
6) Will you be using more two tight end sets to get your rookie Anthony Fasano on the field as a blocker and receiver?
If I were a Cowoby fan (which I would NEVER be) these are questions I’d like to get answers to – unless I already knew the answers. However, the national media has not asked a single one of these questions in their many sessions with the Cowboys. It’s like a train wreck. Hopefully, Michael Irvin will give up his seat as conductor. He’s better than that.
I miss Sterling Sharpe!!
