What would a day in the offseason be without your Cowboys linkies? You must eat them to keep you strong, and warm in the winter!
Well, it appears the Cowboys wanted to do more than just talk with recently released cornerback Stanford Routt. He has scheduled a visit to Dallas; one of four teams the DB will meet with this week. The others; the Chiefs (obviously), Texans and Titans. I have a feeling Routt is going to become a fanbase dividing entity the longer this plays out. He has stats that can excite and scare you, and it will all come down to how much money he's looking for and the team is willing to pay him. I'm sure the club already has a figure in their head and that will be hashed out at the in-person interview later this week.
Routt visited with the Buffalo Bills on Monday and will launch his other stops in KC on Tuesday.
When May rolls around, Cowboys owner Jerry Jones hopes to get a chance at a do over. It appears he will attempt to right the wrongs from January 2011, and show that North Texas really isn't the land of the Ice Capades. Super Bowl L is the next un-awarded title game, and Jones told Daniel Kaplan of Sports Business Journal that he "absolutely" would make a bid. Super Bowl XLV was a disaster on a couple fronts, but the thing that got everyone in a foul mood was a rare ice storm that shut an unprepared Dallas/Arlington area down.
As expected the Cowboys hired former Buccaneers assistant Joe Baker today, to assist Jerome Henderson with the secondary coaching. This hiring rounds out the staff for head coach Jason Garrett. Baker was a receiver that played at Princeton during the same timeframe when Garrett was quarterback.
Roger Staubach,the two-time Super Bowl winning quarterback for the Dallas Cowboys, will receive the 2011 Lamar Hunt Award for Professional Football.
The award honors the life and legacy of Lamar Hunt while recognizing people who have helped shaped the National Football League into the preeminent sports league in America.
Staubach will be honored at the 42nd Annual NFL 101 Awards gala in Kansas City Saturday, March 3 at the Westin Crown Center.
An entire article discussing the Cowboys offensive line play of last year and prospects for 2012, and not once did they mention Montrae Holland's solid play after being brought back into the fold after his release. I don't think Holland is under much consideration, but geesh.
