Michael Irvin's opinion is – rightfully so – respected by the masses in Cowboys Nation. This is why it was noteworthy last year when he supported the idea of Johnny Manziel signing with the Cowboys.
Carving out a role as a national NFL Network analyst with an unending passion to defend America's Team, Irvin has now weighed in on the Dallas Cowboys and Tony Romo talk that's seemingly faded a bit as of late.
Just days after our Staff Writer Brian Martin pondered if the Houston Texans are even deserving of Tony Romo's services, Michael Irvin had this to say:
“Never in your lifetime, my lifetime and your kids' lifetime will the Houston Texans take over Texas from the Dallas Cowboys” – Michael Irvin.
The quote comes as reassurance that, so long as Tony Romo is in fact not wearing the star in 2017, the Cowboys have other things to worry about – such as building a Super Bowl contending roster around their young core.
However long this may take under Dak Prescott, three-time Cowboys' Super Bowl champion Michael Irvin is convinced that Dallas will dominate professional football in Texas for a long time.
Going a step further, Irvin added that he would even take the Cowboys over a potential Tony Romo quarterbacked Texans squad in 2017.
“I would still take Dallas in that game and winning that Super Bowl” – Michael Irvin.
Hopefully these quotes from Irvin can calm some Cowboys' faithful, many of which are currently stressed over the fact Romo is still with the team, the fact that most of the starting secondary from 2016 isn't, or that we didn't somehow pay a pass rusher with one hand whose talents reside in New York.
Tony Romo is going to make some other team better if he plays in 2017, and even if that team is the neighboring Houston Texans, they won't be able to touch the Dallas Cowboys – according to an all-time Dallas legend.
How cool is that?
