Deep Thoughts 12-17-14
Posted by Jefft02 on Wednesday, December 17, 2014 at 8:14:46 AM

 

Hello and welcome another Wednesday of deep thoughts. Is it possible that there are only 2 weeks left of 2014? I have to admit that I felt pretty good about the Cowboy’s chances against the Eagles last Sunday. The Thanksgiving Day massacre by the Eagles was more about Dallas being a tired team than Philly being a better team. Or could it be something else? The Palace in Dallas or Jerry’s World as the stadium is commonly called, has not provided much home field advantage this season. All four of the Cowboys losses have come at home this year…is this simply a coincidence or is there something more? I read a quote from a Cowboy player recently talking about how their home stadium does not really feel like a football stadium. Jerry’s World is a destination, not a place to watch a football game. Simply put…there is no home cooking in Dallas.

 

 

In the old days of Texas Stadium, many of the fans proudly wore their Cowboy blue on their collars. At Jerry’s Cowboy Stadium…to purchase a ticket, fans must pay a PSL fee (personal seat license) to be eligible to purchase a season ticket. For even marginal seats, this fee can be more than $10,000. For 50 yard line seats, the fee will exceed $100,000. The sky boxes provide another option, but those boxes run from $100,000 to $500,000. Obviously the average fan is simply priced out of buying a Cowboy season ticket. This is good for Jerry Jones, but bad for the Dallas Cowboys. There is no roar of the crowd at Cowboy games, unless it if from the visiting fans.

Next weekend, the Cowboys host Andrew Luck and his Indianapolis Colts. While Dallas remains in control of their own destiny, perhaps it is too bad that the Cowboys are not headed to Indianapolis to play this game. What is truly unfair is that some team from the NFL South will be headed to the playoffs with a record that is less than .500. I continue to think that Dallas is built to succeed in the playoffs...at least offensively. It is the defense that makes wonder.

 


 

                                   Johnny Football did not have the succes last Sunday that he knew regularly on Saturdays.

So much for Johnny being good in his first NFL game. Although I realize that this game was poetic justice with the cocky rookie player receiving his dose of humble pie. But, I am still left thinking that Johnny has a chance to be a decent NFL QB. The Browns have played pretty well this year and it appears that they are a QB away from being a team that nobody wants to face. Will this be someone besides Johnny Manziel? After one game, I think the answer is an emphatic, yes.

 


 

I caught a great article this week about how Joe Maddon became manager of the Chicago Cubs. Here is the link, I hope you take a moment to check it out: http://bleacherreport.com/articles/2297391-inside-the-chicago-cubs-theft-of-joe-maddon-one-of-mlbs-best-managers

 It is no secret how I feel about Joe Maddon. What a cool guy and a terrific manager. The Cubs are a team quickly on the rise. There is some serious talent in Chicago and I think that the Cubs and Astros become more relevant in 2015.

 

That’s all I have today, but I will leave you with a bit of Jack Handey…

 

Instead of a Seeing Eye dog, what about a gun? It's cheaper than a dog, plus if you walk around shooting all the time people are going to get out of the way. Cars, too!

 

Whenever I need to ``get away,'' I just get away in my mind. I go to my imaginary spot, where the beach is perfect and the water is perfect and the weather is perfect. The only bad thing there are the flies. They're terrible!

 

 

Thanks for stopping by and feel free to leave a few deep thoughts of your own…

You are so right about 9-11. I don't know if the scars will ever heal. I posted some tributes on my FB page as I did last year.  I got a few responses, but not as many as I thought I would. It's sometimes hard to remember what life was like before 9-11. But I know one thingis  for sure, I will 'never forget'.

I like the Aggies at home, too. Hope the game lives up to the hype. I do think that it could be a high scoring game, though. A&M will let it loose, but I'm afraid their defense will have their hands full with the Crimson Tide offense.  Sadly, I'm more interested in this game than the Texas-Mississippi game. The state of the Longhorn Nation is in disarray.

I know it's only one game. But it has to be sweet to win your first game as an NFL coach on the road in a conference match-up. Congrats, Coach Kelly. I didn't see the Skins-Eagles game as I was working. Didn't catch any highlights either. I caught a bit of the Cowboys game, some of the Saints-Falcons game,  a good amount of the Niners-Packers game, and the second half of the Chargers-Texans game. Haven't really immersed myself into football yet with my baseball team in the hunt for October. 

There are some young studs out there playing QB in the NFL. Look how many of them have started since they were rookies. I watched an ugly second half in NE tonight. Geno Smith was horrible in his second start. The Jets are definitely not intimidated by the Patriots and arguably should have won tonight. It blows my mind to think how many championships have slipped away from the Jets due to an inconsistent offense, and poor performances from their QB's since Favre was there. The defenses in the Ryan era have played winning football. They have deserved so much better.

Enjoyed DT...good stuff.
