OK, before we get to the point of the title of this post, let’s knock out a few other things. Of course people are talking about Tony Romo shooting an 84 at Torrey Pines, site of this year’s U.S. Open. This was all built on Tiger Woods proclaiming an amateur golfer with a 10-handicap couldn’t break 100 on a U.S. Open course. Well, Romo easily broke 100, but it doesn’t really make-or-break Tiger’s comment because Romo has a 2-3 handicap, almost a scratch golfer. Details aside, that was a great effort on Romo’s part. Read some articles here and here.
Tom Ciskowski was promoted to run the college scouting department and talks about it here. It’s funny how a lot of the article is Tom C. saying he’s not just a ‘yes’ man for Jerry.
Now, to the point of the title of this post. I was thinking the other day - what if you could bring back any Cowboys player in our history and put him on this 2008 team. Who would you choose? The premise is if you could magically transport any player in their prime to this year’s team who would it be and why?
I’m looking for your opinions.
Here’s one. What if we could bring back ‘Bullet’ Bob Hayes? Imagine him with his speed (adjusted proportionally to today's NFL standards) lining up opposite T.O. and forcing the defenses to play zone and roll a safety over to his side or run the risk of getting beat deep. That could really open up things for T.O. and Jason Witten. This wasn’t the first one I thought of, but one that I thought was an interesting concept.
Who you got?
