T. O. is Released From the Dallas Cowboys posted on 03/05/2009
According to ESPN the Dallas Cowboys have released Terrell Owens. Thank God!!!
There are a few things to look at over the next few weeks. One, where will Owens end up? Two, how will this affect the draft and Roy Williams? Three, who will become the replacement in the Cowboy's receiving courps?
In my estimation, the keys to this story will be:
The Cowboys will be in the Anquan Boulden sweepstakes. The cowboys will have a chance to get younger and tougher while improving their chemistry if they can land the Arizona Cardinals' talent.
Patrick Creyton may step up, but that isn't Jerry Jones' style. So, look at Boulden or a splash in the draft like Jeremy Macklin or even trading up for Michael Crabtree. My money is on Anquan Boulden.

BCS- NOT BOTS!!! The Humans Are To Blame -Released Coaches Ballots posted on 12/08/2008
The votes have been tabulated. The computers have crunched the numbers. The craziness that is the NCAA college football regular season is over and the bowl match-ups have been chosen.
Unless you live on Mars or spend all of your time reading Teen Magazine, you already know that Florida will play Oklahoma in the BCS national Championship game. You probably also know that teams like Texas and USC will have to wait until the 2009 for a chance to win the trophy. In fact, there are SEVEN one-loss teams that could perhaps make an argument that, at the very least, their fans would listen too.
There are also two undefeated teams that could do likewise. However, they have now been beaten down so long that they are like a dog at the pound. They just want someone to pay a little attention to them. They don’t seem to care if they go to a home that abuses them, ridicules them, and treats them like an unwelcomed guest-they just want to be fed and watered every day.

Houston Texans fans, I know that you are down, but last week was a good one. With their first Monday Night Football appearance the Texans played great football. Changes may be in the mix in the off-season as the rumblings have grown louder. In the meantime however, stay loyal and true to your team. After all, that is what makes a true fan. (Of course you could ask the Chicago Cub fans how that is working out for them.)
