    Hopefully we can run the ball well vs a defense who will be focused against the run and cooper.

    Okay, so I will ask.........why hate his opinions? I have listened to him and his football knowledge is sound.

    He really ticked me off when he went after Romo last year. That and the fact that he tries to act and dress like a college kid rubs me the wrong way. I know, stupid reasoning. Lol

    I get it. When I listen to Aikman covering a game I feel the same way. The thing I try to understand is why he is so critical during a game (the sort of former player/color guy on a broadcast crew that likely feels he needs to be that way to his former team) and then he does a 180 in local media. It doesn't make him a better color guy because of it. If he is doing the game today, I will be muting the telecast because their coverage has nothing to do with the game and that has to be embarrassing for supposedly one of their top crews.

    But Aikman dresses nice.......LOL.

    Well, my dad worked for the Boys and I had front row seats behind the Cowboys bench growing up with Tom Landry. Does that make me more special and self-entitled to brag that I snubbed a great a HOF? Quite the opposite. I felt nothing but very small in the presence of these great all-time Cowboys. And I still feel very much this way today. And all of them that I have met have been very gracious, great men. Should have humbled yourself instead of boasting that the Boys were bowing to your call.

    I remember people asking me about my childhood experience and I always felt like I was the luckiest kid on earth just to be able to attend the games and see everything. And... my dad never allowed me to grow up to act like an entitled child. I miss my dad so much to this day still.

    He's a colorful personality and entertaining. I recognize some of the things you mentioned, but I still listen. I don't have to believe what he says but he is entertaining no less.

    I did not snub him. I was very cordial. I don't mistreat or disrespect people. My 83 year old dad would kick my butt if I did. He might make an exception in your case. Lol!! Just kidding.

    Randy White was my idol as a kid. I got to meet him, he held three camps for me. He was great and a very cool and humble guy. Ive met many players and coaches, but I must say, I never felt small when I did. Probably the only time I felt small was when I met John Paul II. These guys are football players, not Gods.

    He was good or really good when he gave 100% he made/sold himself as bigger than he was as a player IMO after all he was "Prime Time". I would still want him on my team back then, every time.

    well heres my gut feeling, the Cowboys especially Linehan better heed this warning,

    the Rams will come out and overload the Oline with run blitzes and extra defenders to stop zeke at all costs at least the first 2-3 drives, they will sell out and im betting it will work for bit, you must STICK WITH THE RUN AT ALL COSTS..Now that means you must come out and throw few deep balls on first down, slants to Amari, TE passes etc, first drive come out with a giants Game plan and use zeke as a decoy for bit PA bites and bootlegs drags with option game etc that run into surprise passes..

    your game plan should be 2 fold start out of the norm show 1st quarter game plan of scripted throws and fakes and let Mcvay overcompensate and then start feeding zeke the rest of the game..you can NOT run run pass on 3rd and six the first 2-3 drives with punts and possible sacks and fumbles, their game plan will be focused on Zeke scripted the first few drives, you must come out and show some of that final giants game plan to start..then you have zeke to hammer the rest of the game..you feed into the rams game plan and let Donald tee off on third downs all day similar to how we did the Seahawks where it took Seatle 3 qurters to finally start throwing..we cant do this, SL listen!!!!!!!!!!!! I dont care how bad their run defense looked, they are frsh and have plan for this, you must get them out of it before settling back in.

    Exactly,,, consider the topic and take what he says accordingly. I don't find him insightful in the least except on rare occasions, he's mainly there for entertainment purposes only.
