Brad Johnson Just Got A Lot Better

Brad Johnson now has Roy Williams and Terrell Owens to throw to.  Patrick Crayton will get some single coverage and Jason Witten will also get a bunch of single coverage as well.

Johnson is 40, but these weapons will make him feel young again this Sunday in St. Louis.

What about T.O.?  Matt Mosley of ESPN.com writes Mr. Owens is happy about the trade of Williams.

Former Dallas Cowboy Pro Bowler Gets Degree

I always liked La Roi Glover when he played defensive tackle for the Cowboys.  Too bad he got run off by Bill Parcells for the Tuna’s pet Jason Ferguson, who was absolutely a bust in Big D.

Glover is now in St. Louis.  He recently went back to school to earn his college degree in Public Adminstration.  As a six time Pro Bowler, he’s got a boatload of cash in the bank.

He told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch,  “Now that I have three children, it was important for me to show them … the importance of going back and getting it.”

Jason Witten of the Cowboys recently got his college degree from Tennessee.  It’s good to see players understand the importance of a degree and the message it sends to kids and fellow players.

Boston Globe Legend Slices Up Bill Beli-cheat

Bob Ryan writes what he feels.  I had a great talk with him at the Final Four about why it was a mistake for Boston College to leave the Big East for the ACC.

Well the longtime Boston Globe legend brings the heat and truth to why Bill Belichick is hated and why the organization will remain so as long has he is the head coach:

“The sports community now associates the Patriots with cheating. The three Super Bowl championships are, and forever will be, under suspicion. The thought will never go away.”

Ryan does a great job in crafting a piece of why Belichick does what he does:

The rest of the world only knows that Bill Belichick thought he was above the law.

What we have here is a football version of Watergate.

“Bill Belichick is Richard Nixon. Brilliant. Tormented. Paranoid. Controlling. Highly suspicious of the media.

Watergate was overkill. There was no need for it. Like, was Richard Nixon ever really in danger of losing the 1972 election to George McGovern? Spygate was likewise unnecessary. Belichick was, and is, a great football coach. Why did he not trust his own genius to win games honestly, especially after winning his first Super Bowl? Was he that obsessed with victory? Weren’t all those hours staring at tapes enough? Did he think he had a divine right to victory? Clearly, something was churning inside that head.”

Look you have to read this if you love football and good writing.

Why Players and Coaches HATE The Media

John Tomase of the Boston Herald wanted to break the story. 

He wanted to break the story that the New England Patriots videotaped the St. Louis Rams walk through practice before Super Bowl XXXVI.

Tomase broke the story…but it was a lie.   He was wrong and has ruined his name in sports crazy Boston.   His name is trash in the Patriots organization.

He tries to explain his actions, but in my mind, it just goes to show you want athletes and coaches hate the sports media.

It is a must read. 

Rick Gosselin’s Final Mock Draft

Newdawg blog readers know I’m a big time fan of Rick Gosselin of the Dallas Morning News. 

Goose is a tremendous writer and he talks to all the teams.  One day I had him on NBC 5 and he had spoken to five NFL GM’s that day.

He’s got the Cowboys taking a running back and a corner in the first round.   Click for the entire mock draft.

Felix Jones of Arkansas and Brandon Flowers of Virginia Tech.

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.
