Ellis and Stanback – Oh Brother

    Hello world! Been a while. I guess we're all up to date on the latest out of Valley Ranch, so this won't be a news posting, but rather some opinion on the happenings of .

    So I've got two words for you – ; and now I have two more words – HA HA – are those really words?

    Greg Ellis has been a pain in the butt for the past few years, since the season before he injured his Achilles. Does anyone even remember what his complaint was back then? Anyway, it's not as if the guy hasn't been a decent player for us, he's actually been better than decent. But I agree with the Cowboys – it's time to move on.

    Now considering that he was the resident representative, I actually more from him than to say after his that he wished it would have happened a couple of years ago. Sure, he kisses enough ass to not be mistaken for a complete jerk by badmouthing the Cowboys. But it was still pretty low-class for him to insinuate that his last few years have been wasted in Dallas.

    He made his only coming back from that , and even with on the squad Ellis has gotten the respect of a skilled veteran on and off the field.

    If anything, going to another team to start full time a couple of years ago would have shortened his career. As it stands now, he's still got a fair amount of value left in the league and should find a cozy gig before the season starts.

    Okay, so what's with all this talk? Is he good, or is he not? How about Austin, can he step up like so many believe? Hurd … Who? And don't get me started on poor little fragile , I could fart in his direction and he'd be out a few weeks.

    Let's face it; the receiving corps in Dallas is at the beginning of what will either be a very long and painful road, or the turn around of the decade. At this point, if you believe all the media hype that is, our WR's playing good this year would be more tremendous than what the cardinals did last year … if you believe the hype.

    I for one do not, and am glad to see some readers here are looking forward to the this year. I don't think Stanback will be a part of it, I think he'll be cut as soon as possible after he heels up. But let's not forget the still missing piece of this team; there is one more player yet to be named that's coming from 's Fourth and Long. I figure it'll be a receiver simply because we have too many DB's as it is, and we are hurting at WR, yet none have been signed and there have been no rumors that a WR will be signed.

    Yep, it's only June, but already it's interesting enough for me, for June at least.

    I know this is off topic, but how do you all feel about the new stadium?

    I read an article on about the giant scoreboard there — even bigger than the baseball scoreboard at Yankee Stadium. Sorry I had to use them as an example. LOL

    Anyway, if it’s anything like the scoreboard at Yankee Stadium, you’re in for a treat. It’s powered by LED technology, and the clarity and crispness of scores and the high-def video and amount of info they put on there is entertainment in itself.

    Google that article if you like at to get the scoop. Can’t wait to visit Dallas to see the new stadium!
