Please Take Jonathan Stewart At Pick 22

For all my Dallas Cowboys fans, put me down for Oregon running back Jonathan Stewart if he is available when they draft at 22.

He is a big back at 235 pounds who can do it all.

Think of it this way, the Cowboys can erase the mistake of passing on Steven Jackson a few years ago.  I think the St. Louis Rams came out OK on that draft pick.

Stewart is injured right now (toe) but he should be OK according to this ESPN.com article.

Another former personnel man thinks Stewart is worth of a top ten selection.

So I hope Jerry Jones goes Stewart at 22 then take corner at 28. 

Stars Advance In Playoffs…Thank Goodness

I didn’t want to see the Stars lose at home and go to the O.C. for Game 7 against the Ducks.  I just didn’t want to see that.   The odds would have been against them.

Stars co-GM Brett Hull said as much before the game.  We got a chance to talk hockey.  Hull is such a great guy and he truly cares about the game of hockey. 

Hull said it’s tough to watch from the press box because he sees things on the ice and he can’t do a thing about it.  

The Stars came out and won Game 6 with a tremendous 52 seconds of play in the final period.  Down 1-0 the scored on a power play and came right back and scored the game winner.

They shut things down behind goalie Marty Turco and ended the series with a 4-1 win.

Stephane Robidas was the hero with the 1st goal and an assist on Stu Barnes game winner.

So the Stars advance to the semi finals for the first time in five years.   TSN has a nice write up about the series clincher as well.
