    Just him and Mickey talking about old stuff that no one cares about.

    Brandt says

    Alot more speed on defense.

    Impressed with Butler, Smith, Marcus Dixon.

    Better team than last year. Less depth. (contradiction?) Cant lose Ratliff. Thinks we are a playoff team.

    Kitna was a great signing.

    Said we are a lean team. Roy Williams looks great. Spears lost 27 lbs.

    Also...

    We can be the "Silent Assassins" this year with everyone talking about the Giants and Eagles.

    Felix Jones is a huge matchup problem for anyone, LBs or safeties.

    It'll be interesting to see how it works for Wade being DC and HC. Might be tough making halftime adjustments, for instance. But sacks are a great predictor of success on defense and we should be up around 60 again.

    Gil is just amazingly sharp for his age. What a classic he is.

    Says there is a since of purpose. Thinks all we thought we had to do was just show up last year.

    Thinks we are a silent assasin. Says it all starts in the blue jerseys in Tampa florida when we are the sunny side of the field.

    F Jones causes so many match up problems like Bennett.

    Hard to cover him with a LB or SS. Factor on KR.

    They are using a ton of 2 TE's in practice.

    Thinks Phillips can do the whole HC/DC thing but will be hard to have any input on the offense at halftime.

    New Stadium is unbelievable. 40 dollar ticket to stand in the window and watch.

    Thats it. Walah. Go Cowboys.

    2 practices tomorrow.

    I just finished watching the most amazing piece on Michael Irvin. From his father throwing him the ball every night after working from sunup to sundown. His father's dying wish, when Michael was still in High School, to promise him that Michael would take care of his mother. While attending Univ. of Miami to all of his days with the Cowboys...every touchdown, when he would point up in the air, when most everyone would think that he was saying "Look at me, I'm #1..", he was actually pointing up to his father, and saying "Dad...this is for you..."

    Michael was indeed the Soul of the Cowboys. When he came back from his 5 game suspension after his cocaine possession plea deal, he said that he had lost his feeling of "Invincibility", and after that neither he or the Cowboys were ever the same after that. But his story does not end there, and if you all get the chance to see this piece on him, it has to be one of the most positive uplifting story's about him, his life and career.

    I was born in Dallas when the Cowboys first became a NFL franchise, and I've seen them all play...from Bullet Bob to Marion The Barbarian and everyone in between. I have never been so proud to be born and raised a Cowboy Fan than what I am today and now....

    Thank you Michael :star: :star: :star: :star: :star: :star: :star: :star: :star:

    I could not have said it better. The HEART of a CHAMPION! I must say his hall of fame speech is one of the must emotional moments in my life.
