Dallas Should Be Super Bowl Champions

2015 Pro Bowler Tony Romo

That title seems like a stretch, doesn’t it?

Well it shouldn’t be…at all.

As much as I dislike that team and their fans, “America’s Team” (as it was proclaimed long ago) is back in the saddle to make that championship run to sit on the NFL’s top mountain.

This team has the makings of a championship-caliber football team.

You heard that correctly. Me, the one that dislikes the Cowboys, believes this team can win it all.

It has a good (although sometimes good has been a stretch for him), a running back (who led the league in rushing and touchdowns), and a wide receiver (who is probably the best receiver in the NFL). In addition…an All-Pro tight end and by far one of the best offensive lines in not just the conference, but the entire league. Not to mention, a defense who ranked in the Top 15 in defense this season and won every road game they played in (4-4 home record during regular season) seems like a clear indicator that this team is headed back towards their “destiny for greatness.” I DON’T LIKE IT! But I have to deal with it. It’s just sports.

Speaking of it’s just sports, this post wouldn’t have been done if it wasn’t for the “controversial” 24-20 win against the Detroit Lions in the NFC Wild Card game on Sunday. Lots of factors played into the game especially the poor decision making of one Jim Caldwell, who is about every bit as bad with that as Marvin Lewis is with the Bengals. Let’s not forget how Jerry Jones used his wallet to overcome that bad pass interference call. BUT when the game was on the line, Caldwell choked and his quarterback choked. That’s what makes me dislike Matthew Stafford. In games I needed him for fantasy, he choked.

Sorry, getting beside myself because the topic is about Dallas…so let me stick to the topic at hand, ok?

Dallas has a good road ahead of them, yet probably their biggest challenge will come from the NFC North champs, the Green Bay Packers. I don’t like them either. Thanks two of my family members who constantly think they are the absolute best. But hey, as a fan you’re supposed to think that way. But the Cowboys have their undefeated regular season mark to take with them on to Lambeau. If they get past Green Bay, they are going to the Super Bowl. WELL HOW IS THAT, TRAIN? THEY HAVE ANOTHER GAME LEFT AFTERWARDS. Truth. But let me help you understand because (whispers) it’s all a setup.

“The best receiver in the NFL,” Dez Bryant

The Carolina/Seattle game will more than likely goes Seattle’s way (on paper). I understand the term “Any Given Sunday” real well yet more than likely they will be outmatched. Now if Carolina steps up from their 27-16 win against Arizona, they could put the Seahawks on the ropes. But I just don’t see that happening in this matchup. Back to why Dallas will go to the Super Bowl is this…Seattle will likely be the winner between them and Carolina which sets up a rematch back with Dallas back in Week 6, which the Cowboys won by a touchdown IN Seattle. Dallas won’t be afraid of Seattle because they believe they can be them in their own house. HOWEVER, this will be the 2nd time in Romo’s career that he will face Seattle at Qwest Field. The last time he played them (which was back in 2006), led to this, and the final was this. But THAT was a different Romo then compared to now…at least some people think that…but however, this team should not be able to disappoint. This NFL fan hopes they choke again.

But yet this 2014 edition of the Cowboys team is eerily similar to the Dallas team back in 1992. You can click this link and see what I mean.

If they get the win in Lambeau, get the people ready for a party in Glendale at Super Bowl XLIX (49) and a date with the New England Patriots and beating down Tom Brady.

Lord, I hope that doesn’t happen, but if it does, I’m going to a Super Bowl party…for just the food/drink.

THE A-TRAIN RANT 8.0!!!

It’s been such a long time since I have ranted that I might just do a HUGE rant for this one! But let’s go!

This rant is sponsored by…

THE ANGRY REDBIRD!!

  1. Congratulations to the San Francisco Giants winning their 2nd championship in 3 years. How sad it was for Miguel Cabrera who has just recently suffered the Carlos Beltran Syndrome. The Carlos Beltran Syndrome was made in 2006 after Beltran struck out in the 2006 NLCS freezing on a called third strike that ended that series. When you get frozen on a third strike to end a World Series…everything that was done that season almost meant nothing. Sorry Mr. Triple Crown.
  2. Pablo Sandoval isn’t in the same league as Albert Pujols, Babe Ruth and Reggie Jackson. But what he did in Game 1 was better than all 3. And I hate that. That’s just the homer in me.
  3. St. Louis Rams fans should be satisfied about the 3-5 record, forget what happened against New England in London. Yeah they gave up a couple of games and should have a winning record…but remember these are the Rams.
  4. Steven Jackson should be traded…time to give up the golden goose. YEAH I SAID IT. Tired of defending this dude.
  5. Sam Bradford finally has an offensive coordinator that will be back next season. Just need to work on the…offense.
  6. Jerry Jones needs to give up his job as general manager of Dallas. Tony Romo needs to give up his starting job as quarterback. Does the name Marc Bulger ring a bell? Jason Garrett needs to just be an offensive coordinator.
  7. Atlanta Falcons are 7-0. Guess what? BIG DEAL. Win a game in the playoffs, then you can celebrate. While you sitting there saying that I’m a hater. Let me put some truth in your minds. Last two playoff games the Falcons played, they lost to the Super Bowl winner. Having one of the first round byes doesn’t get a team to the Super Bowl…teams that constantly play get you there. Don’t believe me…ask the last two champions.
  8. If Lance Armstrong is banned from cycling, Barry Bonds, Alex Rodriguez, Mark McGwire and Sammy Sosa need to be banned from baseball.
  9. Stephen A. Smith did not say the N-word…meaning he’ll keep his job on First Take.
  10. Cari Champion is the sexiest sportscaster on TV. Find me one better. And I’ll disagree with you.
  11. No hockey, sorry fans. You got the hardwood or the gridiron. Suck it up.

Well so much for the huge rant…might do another one this week. Stay tuned. Some NBA is in store…The Association coming soon.

THE A-TRAIN RANT 7.0!!!

THIS A-TRAIN RANT IS SPONSORED BY…

THE ANGRY REDBIRD!

  1. Peyton Manning is the best QB of all-time…the hell with Brett Favre. After a comeback like that with a not so great team. He can damn near do anything.
  2. Matt Holliday, Jon Jay and Yadier Molina need to learn how to hit in the playoffs. A few instructional videos with Fred McGriff shouldn’t hurt. Don’t act like you don’t remember those.
  3. Jeff Fisher did a good thing on Sunday with Greg The Leg, trying for him to kick a (would have been record) 66-yard field goal. If he knows he can kick, what the hell else do you supposed to do on 4th down.
  4. Speaking of that Rams game, Sam Bradford needs to learn the 2-minute drill, and when to throw the football IMMEDIATELY. It costs the Rams a much needed road win.
  5. The Rams should be at least 5-1. YEAH, I SAID IT. Detroit and Miami should have been road wins. Unclear about that Chicago game but at least they should have been in the lead for those games. Tough breaks in those losses.
  6. Who in the hell is this Richard Sherman guy from Seattle? For a guy who hasn’t seen a postseason yet, he sure thinks he  has the right to go tell off to a Super Bowl-winning QB that he is better than him. Get a championship first, then talk trash. Learn something from Gary Payton, even if it means going to another team to get it.
  7. Speaking of RGIII…I think he is finally learning what the NFL is like. After a mild concussion last week…Dude, they are just getting started with you.
  8. Speaking of Washington D.C., the Washington Nationals front office do not want to win any championships. If that’s the case, they should all be fired. NEXT SEASON!!
  9. The San Francisco Giants are no punks, they got to the NLCS for a reason. This is about to be (hopefully) a great NLCS, funny though how 2 things surface from this matchup. 1) 25 years ago, these two teams played to a thrilling 7-game series with the Cardinals, with the Cardinals winning that before losing to the Minnesota Twins in the Fall Classic. 2) These 2 teams are the last 2 champions, interesting to see who gets there again.
  10. NBA season is around the corner, NHL season is down in the dumps. Last year, it was the other way around.
  11. I don’t feel sorry for the New York Yankees. I’m a long-time hater and I don’t care. Feel sorry for Derek Jeter though. Looks like (as a friend put it) BALCO East needs to break out the juice for another comeback.
  12. The New York Giants are the best team in the NFC, until someone knocks them off, no one else is better. PERIOD. Just ask the San Francisco 49ers.
  13. Back to the Rams…they scored more points the 49ers did. Take that San Fran!
  14. Philip Rivers and Tony Romo are the same people…Yet, I think both are trying to fire their offensive head coaches. Shame on you!
  15. I’ll miss Ray Lewis…that man is cursed. He got in that Madden game again and now he won’t even play the rest of the season. I hope it’s not the last one. If so, this is a bad way to go out. Very bad way.
  16. I got at least 1 win in fantasy football this week, and that I didn’t have a full team with that.

Coming up, a Q/A interview with author Allen Schatz and hopefully get one of the ladies from the Lingerie Football League’s St. Louis Saints.

Stay tuned.
