I'm a big fan of the Madden franchise. Every year I get the new one and start a new franchise mode so that I can lead the Dallas Cowboys to Super Bowl glory. While I love me some Romo, I also love me some me (to quote the great philosopher Terrell Owens, that is). Typically the quarterback of the Cowboys on my digital team goes by the name RJ Ochoa and wears the number 4 on his jersey. It's my favorite number, after all.
"They're in win now mode." Who among us has heard that ad nauseam over the course of the last, oh I don't know, fifty million days? I've spent a lot of time digesting this supposed ideology over the last week. I contemplated it to my self and talked about it on various audio platforms: The RJ Ochoa Show, The Footbology Podcast with Marcus Mosher, and my fellow Staff Writer Sean Martin's school radio show, UFR on WMSC.
Is it football season yet? Well, not quite. That is not to say though that exciting things aren't going on with the Dallas Cowboys! The 2016 draft class is settling into the reality that they will get to play for the best franchise in the NFL, with little time to waste before rookie camps open. In fact, most of the rookies were already in the building as of yesterday, and took to Twitter to highlight their experiences.
Today is April 22nd. You already knew that, though. You also knew that, despite the NBA and NHL playoffs being well underway, the NFL has dominated the news over the past couple of days. Reason being, the draft is just 6 days away, Josh Norman is suddenly a free agent, and players are reporting back to their team's facilities to being preparation for the 2016 campaign. Of course, all of these things drew plenty of attention from Cowboys Nation faithful on Twitter.
