Cowboys, DIDN"T cut Marcus Spears...intersting

Marcus Spears of the Cowboys just re-signed for $19.2million over five years. I personally thought he would be released, his production was down last year and he didn't make the noise I thought he would....
from LSU he comes from big time ball, but an injury plagued year leaves a lot to be desired.
Show me something Marcus...this is NFC EAST BALL!

Crowder Cut

Jeff Ireland and Tony Sporano saved a few bucks this afternoon....they just cut Channing Crowder....He's always good for some amusing quotes and usually pretty candid. Big talker but imho he was an average linebacker.
he'll land somewhere over the weekend.
he's probably most famous for his lively and entertaining quotes, such as...

"I couldn’t find London on a map if they didn’t have the names of the countries," Crowder said. "I swear to God. I don’t know what nothing is. I know Italy looks like a boot. I learned that." That's good to know. "I know (Washington Redskins linebacker) London Fletcher. We did a football camp together. So I know him. That’s the closest thing I know to London. He’s black, so I’m sure he’s not from London. I’m sure that’s a coincidental name."
Now his most recent comments: 
A guy just spit in my face! I don't give a damn about Karlos pulling somebody's face mask. Like [the refs] didn't see [Dolphins quarterback] Chad Henne get hit twice when he slid. Yeah, a little Stevie Wonder and Anne Frank."
Asked what the Anne Frank reference meant, Crowder said "Who was that? Is that the blind girl? Helen Keller ... I don't know who the f--- Anne Frank is. I'm mad right now. F--- it. I'm not as swift as I usually am"
Brother Crowder...Miami will miss u!

Nick Saban...does he have a sense of humor or is he just...strange?

Love him or hate him, Nick Saban is a special kind of guy.
And let’s be real. Ladies just can’t resist his charming, full-of-life personality. Haven’t you ever seen “The Blind Side”?
During Alabama’s 2011 youth football camp, Saban showcased some of that award-winning charm in a 16-minute go-get-’em motivational speech (if you could call it that) to a group of campers, aged 8-14, and their parents.
In it, Saban discusses the importance of paying attention, the unimportance of XBOX and the relentlessness of Freddy Krueger. It’s pretty entertaining.
Because, well, it’s Nick Saban. Enjoy.

The Saga Continues

Butch Davis the head coach at Chapel Hill was released yesterday.
Not surprising, but very surprising.....let me explain, there has been quite a bit going on up in Chapel Hill, most recently nine of his players were suspended last year for a scandal that was pretty big by College Ball Standards, inappropriate contact with agents, academic issues with tutors, all kind of things, and the worst part of it, John Blake, now here is a real rascal, Butch should have known who Blake was, he was recruiting coordinator or something and had some defensive coord. title, but his real job was a recruiter, the guy can recruit  lets not mistake that, but John Blake shouldn't be around young men, he doesn't play by the rules, and he totally destroyed Oklahoma when he was there, and he tore up the Dallas Cowboys locker room, when he was an assistant there in Big D. Butch knew all of this, and he still offered this man a job. That's Butch's biggest mistake in my humble opinion. John Blake got Butch fired, as the head coach, Davis should have known what was going on, as a coach did he? maybe maybe not, is what it is.
The very wild part is the timing, players report next week, and the season, the ACC opener is only a month or so away....
I think Butch Davis is finished in College athletics, but he will surely be welcomed back into the NFL, will he be a head coach, not right away, but he will definitely get a job as a guess, in San Diego with old Friend Norv turner, or up in Buffalo once Wannestadt pulls a coup on Chan Gailey....
The Saga Continues....

Bye Bye ROY!

The Boyz have released Roy Williams.....Thank Goodness,
too much salary, not enough production, and he talks it up. Catch The Damn Ball....
Watch Snyder sign him.
They also released Marion "The Barbarian" Barber, a true Monster! Ill miss seeing him run over fools in the NFC East, but hey he had a big cap number, and he has been hurt the last few years.
Good move on Roy, and I saw it coming with The Barbarian....its a new day in Big "D"!

The Cowboys are scheduled to report to training camp in San Antonio on Wednesday and begin practicing Thursday inside the Alamodome. Im not a big fan of the Alamodome for trainign camp....get em out in the heat, make em sweat, that makes or breaks you now, and it will shoe up in November, December and hopefully through until February!
The NFL Players Association has approved the terms of a deal to end the 4 1/2-month lockout, with the players voting unanimously for the new collective bargaining agreement.
The Cowboys are scheduled to report to San Antonio on Wednesday for physicals, meetings and conditioning. The team's first practice in pads wouldn't come until the weekend, according to the terms of the new CBA.
Equipment trucks, originally scheduled to leave for San Antonio last Friday, have finally left Valley Ranch.
"Teams are going to have a lot on their plates, handling practice, free agency, negotiations, but that's part of the process," Cowboys tight end Jason Witten said. "My perspective is to go into camp, work at your craft and all that will work itself out. You're hopeful that you can get the best team in place."
The NFL announced Monday that teams can go to a 90-man roster, and the official free-agent list was distributed to teams. Trading begins Tuesday, and teams started to reach agreements with undrafted free agents late Monday. At 3 p.m. Thursday, teams can begin to cut players.
The Cowboys need safety help but might not be as active during the free-agent frenzy simply because they're about $18 million over the expected $120 million salary cap. Though NFL teams can borrow a $3 million credit against this year's salary cap, the Cowboys will need to restructure contracts (with Tony Romo DeMarcus Ware and Miles Austin as prime targets) and release players (RB Marion Barber is likely one gone). That will put them in better position to resign their own free agents (LT Doug Free at the top of the list) and be more aggressive in the open market.
In other words, get ready for a chaotic week of rumors and roster moves.
The Cowboys' first preseason game is scheduled for Aug. 11 against Denver at Cowboys Stadium but could be pushed back a few days to give both teams more practices. If the first practice is indeed Thursday that would give the Cowboys at least 15 full days of practices before their first preseason game.

The Cowboys released their training camp plans Monday following the official end of the 4 1/2-month NFL lockout. Here’s a look at the details:
Location: Alamodome in San Antonio
Report to site: Players arrive Wednesday for meetings and physicals, starting with the rookies in the morning.
First practice: Thursday
Daily practice schedule: Walk-throughs from 10 a.m. to 11 a.m. and contact practices from 2:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. There are no morning walk-through sessions scheduled for Sunday and Aug. 7. The first three practices, according to new league rules, will be without pads.
Return to Dallas: Cowboys break camp Aug. 10.
Preseason opener: Vs. Denver at 7:30 p.m. Aug. 11 at Cowboys Stadium.
After the Denver game: Resume preseason practices Aug. 13 at Cowboys Stadium.

Let The Games Begin

Boys and girls....Let the games begin.
Free Agency is on and poppin', the lockout is over....but before i get to the juicy stuff, here a funny one for you...
John Beck of the Washington Redskins, showed up at Redskins park yesterday, since the lockout was over, expecting to get inside go over a few things with his coordinator Kyle Shannahan (If you call him that, i call him a high-school coordinator) and the security guard at Redskins Park, didn't even know who he was.....
LOL!, how are they even in the NFC EAST?
