Sorry boys, but when I read that Cuzzin Jerruh is not going to sign a F/A offensive lineman, my blood started to boil . . . jump on down with me and yours will too . . .
Every true believer on this blog site knows how much I love me some Big Uglies, so I won’t bore you with the obvious. However, if Cuzzin Jerruh had truly graduated from the Jethro Bodine School of Cypherin’ (with a 6th grade education), he would have learned Pythagorean’s Theorem, which states:
“I don’t care if you run a pro-style offense, shot-gun, run-and-shoot, wishbone or single-wing . . . if my big guys whup yore big guys, I’m gonna win!”
Don’t tell me for a second that an all-rookie right side of the OL doesn’t scare you to death! If Jason Garrett is truly going to be held accountable for this team, then sign Brian Waters to a 2 year deal. Let him start the first year at RG and mentor Tyron Smith on the intricacies of NFL offensive line play (not to mention whispering line calls in Andre Gurode’s right ear, while Kyle Koser does the same in his left ear), and then IF young Mr. Arkin is ready to start, serve the second year of his contract as a veteran back-up for 3 OL positions. The old “Mean Greener” would love to come home and is a solid locker room presence.
Take a stroll down “History Lane” . . . every dominant team in the NFL (notice I never used the “dynasty” word) had a solid OL: the Browns of the 50’s, the Packers of the 60’s, the Dolphins and Steelers of the 70’s . . . well, you get my drift. A solid OL controls the game and keeps the defense off the field, which brings us to another famous quote:
“Those who do not learn the lessons of history are destined to repeat mistakes and fail.”
Yes, I know, this makes entirely too much sense . . . but I have neither the time nor inclination to butt heads with a razorback any longer. So tell me, Cowboy Nation, whaddaya think???
