JJ Whatt!?

In the last blog I described how JJ Watt is the most prolific defensive player the Houston Texans Defense has. He is the Captain and soul of that defensive squad and without his big plays the Texans usually lose. Well, Ladies and Gentlemen the Cowboys Offensive Line held up and it held up extremely well, it was almost as if I was watching the O-line of the early 90s. Watt was soundly beaten on virtually every play. In essence he was a non-factor in Sunday’s game and thanks to our own Defense we came out on top with a humongous overtime TEXAS victory. Our Defensive Line was so darn impressive it reminded me of our old 70’s Doomsday Defense. Tony (Houdini) Romo played his usual style of quarterback play, he made some great throws and made a great escape against the great (perhaps play of the year) JJ Watt.wpid-screenshot_2014-10-05-21-40-12.png It seemed that Romo had eyes in the back of his head by the way he moved against the threat of a Watt sack. Romo made the most incredible dodge, spin and roll I’d seen all season long. Watt, to his dismay ended catching Romo’s shadow and a little bit of grass as well. Romo immediately recovered rolled around and threw the most incredible bomb to Terrance Williams for a 43 yard touchdown pass. The Cowboys fans became very worried in the 4th quarter when the Texans decided to give the Cowboys Defense a huge dose of Andre Johnson and Arian Foster. Both of these players helped the Texans tie at 17-17 and a guaranteed extra quarter of play in overtime. During overtime both offenses had their chance but on 3rd down coach Garret decided it was time for Dan Bailey to finally drive the stake through the Texans heart. Cowboys won by 3 points and upped their record to 4-1 which ties the Philadelphia Eagles at the top of the NFC East. They also retained the Texas Governor’s Cup and the bragging rights for 4 more years. This game was touted as the game of the week by some of the NFL analysts, guess they were right. Although I prefer to call this, the game of the year. Mr. Jerry Jones, we won! Now let that other rich bastard Mr. Bob McNair cry for his loss in the greatest sports venue on earth, “Jerry’s World”. Top 4 Standouts: 1. Offensive Line, 2. Tony Romo, 3. Defensive Line, and 4.Dez Bryant *JTRACKER COMPASS AWARD* is awarded to: Offensive Line for the again terrific blocking, holding the line and for stopping and making JJ Watt irrelevant for this game. I was a very lucky man to have witnessed this game in person at the AT&T stadium. The feeling of being there was indescribable but emotional. It was worth every hard earned dime I spent for the game tickets.

TEXANS to visit COWBOYS on Sunday afternoon for the Texas Governor’s Cup showdown

The Houston Texans are visiting the Dallas Cowboys this coming Sunday afternoon and it’s going to be a huge Texas football showdown. This rivalry is enormous in the Lone Star State especially in the Houston and “everywhere else” in the Texas zip codes area.

This rivalry usually flies underneath the national radar but Sunday’s game is going to be more than for bragging rights, it’s to remain at the top of their respective divisions and for the much acclaimed Texas Governor’s Cup .

Let’s begin by stating the obvious, Justin James Watt IS the Texans Defense. Watt can do it all, he is the best Defensive End in football that I’ve ever seen. No one in that position dominates a game like he does, no one. At just 25 years of age and in his 4th year in the league in between the end zones he has virtually done it all .

Just this year alone against the Oakland Raiders Watt caught an offensive pass for a touchdown and last Sunday against the Buffalo Bills he blocked then intercepted the ball for an 80 yard return to include a pick 6. Wow!

The Texans achilles heal is the Offense and in particular the Quarterback but to put it simply the entire offense suck.

The Dallas Cowboys are firing perfectly on all cylinders and hoping for more of the same this weekend. Romo looks great, Murray looks great, the Offensive Line looks great and the Defense looks good. But for this particular game, good is all that is required for the Cowboys to come out on top.

Earlier in the week I heard Jerry Jones admit that in his 25 year ownership he had cried at the conclusion of only three football games. He stated that the loss against the Houston Texans in 2002 was on that list.

Jerry I can bet you a fajita taco that you will not have to cry at the conclusion of this game. Why you ask, well keep on reading and at the conclusion of this narrative you will find out why.

I give the edge to the Dallas Cowboys because overall they have a much better coached team. They are playing with high intensity and emotion, and because they have bought into what the Coordinators sold them.

p.s. I will be watching this game live and in person at AT&T Stadium!20121205_135835-1
