Plastico Burress a Cowboy?

Well, I guess Dez needs a role model.

QUOTE
OXNARD, Calif. -- The Dallas Cowboys have held preliminary discussions with Drew Rosenhaus, the agent for Plaxico Burress, about signing the free-agent wide receiver, according to a source.

The Cowboys have young and inexperienced receivers fighting for the No. 3 position on the team, and are thinking of adding a veteran if no one emerges.

On Thursday afternoon, team executive vice president Stephen Jones told KTBB-FM in Tyler, Texas, that the team "wouldn't totally rule out Plaxico at some point."


Jerry Jones...the gift that keeps on giving.

We need a center, two guards, a third receiver, a safety, and another nose guard.  Then we'll be ready to go all the way.  We still have plenty of holes.  With that said, I think we'll make the playoffs this year.

That was tough to watch.  I was in Vegas on Monday and watched it at the sports book at my hotel.  I can't believe people actually bet on pre-season games!  Way too many variables and players that you know nothing about.  But all that being said, the Cowboys are undefeated!! tongue.gif

just in case anyone is unsure about a spleen, here's some info:

The spleen (from Greek σπλήν—splēn) is an organ found in virtually all vertebrate animals. Similar in structure to a large lymph node, the spleen acts primarily as a blood filter. As such, it is a non-vital organ, with a healthy life possible after removal. The spleen plays important roles in regard to red blood cells (also referred to as erythrocytes) and the immune system. In humans, it is located in the left upper quadrant of the abdomen. It removes old red blood cells and holds a reserve of blood in case of hemorrhagic shock while also recycling iron. As a part of the mononuclear phagocyte system, it metabolizes hemoglobin removed from senescent erythrocytes. The globin portion of hemoglobin is degraded to its constitutive amino acids, and the heme portion is metabolized to bilirubin, which is subsequently shuttled to the liver for removal. It synthesizes antibodies in its white pulp and removes antibody-coated bacteria along with antibody-coated blood cells by way of blood and lymph node circulation. The spleen is brownish. A study published in 2009 using mice showed it has been found to contain in its reserve half of the body's monocytes within the red pulp. These monocytes, upon moving to injured tissue (such as the heart), turn into dendritic cells and macrophages while promoting tissue healing. It is one of the centers of activity of the reticuloendothelial system and can be considered analogous to a large lymph node, as its absence leads to a predisposition toward certain infections.

That was a big time hit he took.  Witten is as tough as they come.  He can't mess around with this although I am sure he is dying to get out there again.  As far as I am concerned expose the key vets as little as possible and find out what we have with the young guys.  Need to stay healthy this year and it hasn't been a great start.

A Dallas Cowboys fan is burning mad at her team.

Jennelle Carrillo, of Cleburne, Texas, has sued the Cowboys and owner/general manager Jerry Jones after she suffered severe burns to her backside while allegedly sitting on a bench outside Cowboys Stadium before a team scrimmage in August 2010.

Temperatures on the day of the annual Blue & Silver scrimmage were more than 100 degrees, and the bench that Carrillo sat on was black.

"The bench was uncovered and openly exposed to the extremely hot August sun," the suit, which was filed in Tarrant County civil court, states. "The combination of the nature of the black, marble bench and hot sunlight caused the bench to become extremely hot and unreasonably dangerous."

Carrillo's lawyer, Michael Wash, told KDFW-TV that his client initially knew she had been burned but didn't realize the extent of the injuries until receiving medical attention. She did not stay for the game, according to Wash.

"She sat down on this black bench, outside an entrance and unfortunately she suffered third-degree burns as a result of it and had subsequent skin grafts," he told KDFW.

The suit alleges that Cowboys Stadium posted no warning signs alerting fans that the benches could be hot.

Wash told KDFW that Carrillo has suffered "mental anguish, physical pain and disfigurement as a result of her wounds."

According to the TV station, Carrillo is suing to get a jury trial and payment of court fees, interest and a damage amount determined by the jury.

The Cowboys declined comment to KDFW due to the ongoing litigation, per team policy.

That is just another ridiculous stupid lawsuit.  How do these cases not get thrown out before they get to step 1?  "Oh my ass is burning.  I think I will just stay here and let it fry."

I suspect that if this were a fan of any other team, the suit would have been thrown out.    But since it was a Cowboy fan, and a lot of them aren't exactly known for their intelligence, maybe the judge thought it had some merit.

Another fresh beginning.  BIG game tonight.  Let's start with a pounding of Eli and the Giants.  I am eager to see our much improved secondary in action.

Great game.  I am liking this team!  Romo looks like he is taking the next step.  I have never seen him so animated and in control at the line pre-snap.  He was in complete command of the game.  I absolutely don't get the Romo haters.

The secondary looks as good as advertised, the O line as questionable. Brilliant game plan to feed Ogletree early and then bang Austin and Dez late. Looks like we have a third receiver.
