2016 AND THE NEW DRAFT CAST OF CHARACTERS

Now that all those months of exceptional boredom without football is over and the 2016 NFL draft has concluded. Jt48 gets to stretch his hands and fingers, dust off that digi-writer and put his thoughts into readable form. So here we go…

What’s up with our first draft choice. This fellow from Ohio State, the young Ezekial Elliott. I call him Mr Half Shirt, or “Ha-shi”. Apparently he forgot he was going to an event and thought he was just going out to hang with his buddies at the corner store.

Every article I’ve read and every sports analyst I’ve heard. Including his former coach Gary Brown has said that this guy is the best running back in a generation. Heck, even Emmitt Smith has stated that Hashi is a better running back than he was.

I believe if Darren McFadden takes Hashi under his wing and mentor him he will be all right. Now there’s no reason why the Offense can’t be the best in the league. We have an elite quarterback, top offensive line, and now a young talent that could potentially be the best in the league. Heck what’s not to like…

All this ecolades are nice and all but the putting is on the field and hopefully Hashi can prove all these people right. If the coaches can strategize correctly and teach the players good fundamentals. We are gonna be a force to be recon with, but that’s a big “IF”!

I’ll be trying to write a post every other week as I am limited in time and resources. I’ll be hanging out here in sunny southern California for another 9 weeks. I have to stop here cuz there’s only 1 computer and there’s a line of people waiting to use it…

Go COWBOYS!

1st Rounder Byron Jones

U-Conn coaches thanks for training our new superstar (CB/SAFETY) the techniques required to be a huge presence in big D’s back field. Some say Malcom Brown should have been picked before Byron but I disagree.

By all accounts Byron Jones was easily a first round pick and as such. Even if we didn’t need a Corner Back (which we do) his skill set was going to be a much needed boost to our back field position.

Hardy is our new pass rusher and even though we won’t have his services at the beginning of the season. He will play for us at the end of the season when he will be needed to destroy our opponent offensive line.

Yea I give the Boys a A- for this pic.

Go Cowboys!!!!

DALLAS COWBOYS SIGN DARREN McFADDEN

So we now know Demarco “One Great Season” Murray has crossed over to our arch nemesis, the Philadelphia Eagles. It appears he is more interested in money rather than a probable Cowboys Super Bowl Championship run.

Personally, I don’t care. If that’s what he wants well: “bye”.

I enjoyed watching Murray play but was near cardiac arrest each time he rushed with the football. I hadn’t mentioned this before but if there was “one” play in the Cowboys Playoff loss to Green Bay we could have done without was Demarco’s fumble. That fumble changed the complexity of the game and the eventual outcome…and yes Dez caught the ball!!!

Out with the old and in with the new, Darren McFadden.

Just hours after Demarco Murray decided to sign with the Philadelphia Eagles,the Dallas Cowboys front office sought out Darren McFadden. He was signed to a 2 year contract worth up to $5.8 million dollars with a guaranteed $200,000 signing bonus. Up until that point,  Jtracker48 and the legions of Dallas Cowboys fans hadn’t heard too much of the University of Arkansas superstar running back. He was just another highly skilled collegiate football player with so much potential. He was drafted 4th overall by the Oakland Raiders but after years of so many ups and downs,well mostly downs, the team decided to release him.

I believe Darren McFadden will do great things for the Dallas Cowboys. He will have a much better offensive line to open bigger running lanes, much better receivers to keep the defenders in check, and a much better quarterback to make key decisions before the snap.If he isn’t as good as we need him to be the Cowboys can simply give him his walking papers and pull that roster spot out from under him and give it to someone more deserving.

Stephen Jones appears to be in full control of personnel decisions. I think the era of Jerry Jones making all sorts of crazy hires is over.

In Stephen Jones I trust.

LION PRIDE FROM THE LANDS OF DETROIT LOSES PLAYOFF RUN TO THE COWBOYS 20-24

The wondering Lions traveled south to the lands of Arlington Texas, home to the Dallas Cowboys. Their game plan to knock off the Cowboys from their high horse had already been studied and implemented. What was needed to accomplish this feat was easier said than done.

The Lions in the first half were unstoppable; they were well prepared and well equipped to overrun the Cowboys and to continue their own NFC playoff quest. What the Lions brain trust hadn’t prepared for was for something unexpected, something you couldn’t plan against; a new Cowboys attitude.

This philosophy when believed could turn the entire franchise around and now it had taken hold. It permeated the halls of AT&T Stadium and was believed by all that heard it. In the simplest of geeky ways, Jason Garrett had been saying it over and over, “Be your best, not try your best”. “Be your best, not try your best” finally it was accepted.

During the half time break the Dallas Cowboys learned that in the throes of defeat the real character of its players would reveal itself.

Once the second half of the game started the confident Lions thought they could continue to have their way with them Boys’. But it was obvious to the 91,410 in attendance that the Dallas Cowboys came out with a new attitude and from that point on they were going to play better, smarter, and with higher intensity.

In the second half the Detroit Lions were held for only 3 points. While the Dallas Cowboys scored three times for 17. The Dallas defense forced 3 Lions turnovers and flat out beat them in every down there after.

Tony Romo was clutch throughout the game especially in the last minutes. He was superb throwing to Witten, Beasley, Bryant, Murray, and two touchdown Williams. I’m sure with this type performance lots of Romo haters were disappointed they couldn’t talk crap about him.

Demarcus Lawrence was a goat in the final minutes of the game by picking up a fumble only to give it right back. However, he shook that mistake off and continued to play, because that’s what he was suppose to do. Seconds later the awesome trifecta happened, he sacked the quarterback, stripped the ball, and recovered the fumble all on the same play, oh redemption!

We, at jtracker48.com would like to thank the Detroit Lions because without their support the Dallas Cowboys wouldn’t have won.

On a personal note: This goes to all those fair weather Cowboys fans out there. Look beyond the past, it’s time to be united with all of us and refocus your effort and energy against our opponents.

THIS IS PLAYOFF FOOTBALL BABY, our next victory will come in Lambo Field against those cheesy yellow helmet heads and that guy. You know, the double check guy. The one that’s going to get “X”ed out next Sunday afternoon!

Jtracker48 predicts a Cowboys win 35-24

JTRACKER48 COMPASS AWARD is awarded to the entire organization for believing in themselves and proving that they will not stop fighting until the final whistle of the game has blown.

Stand, Engage, Adjust, and Celebrate baby!

I can see clearly now the rain is gone… cuz we gonna kick some Lion pride ass tonight!

Wanted to inform all my Cowboys friends and family that we got this!

All I’ve heard for that last 48 hours is that The Detroit Lineman Ndamukong Suh is the greatest lineman the Cowboys Offensive Line will face and as such we are in for a hell of a fight…

Lets not forget who’s house this is! The Cowboys are undefeated against the Lions when they play in Arlington.

Now, I feel that we already played the best Defensive Lineman in all of football and perhaps of all time, J.J. Watt!

If my Boys’ controlled the best Defensive player in the NFL, they sure can control Suh, and by the way, who names their boy Suh?

Go Cowboys!!!

Dallas wins by 10+
