I like long walks on the beach, mystery novels, no just kidding those suck. The Dallas Cowboys were put on this earth for us all to love and appreciate. I do that 24/7/365. I also love chicken parmesan. Let's roll. @RJOchoa if you wanna shout!

Mike Pope, perhaps the all-time best tight-ends coach in the NFL, surely deserves a wonderful retirement after all the years, imagination, instruction and quality he has given to his many great players. The Giants loss, and it was a huge one, was the Cowboys tremendous gain! Yes, Jason Witten has been a future Hall of Fame TE for a long time, but those two together only made it all better! It’s been a pleasure to follow the career of Coach Pope and the incredible TE’s who excelled because of him. Congratulations on an incredible career and wishes for a very happy and a very long retirement! You will be missed on the sidelines!
