Y’all know that I try to be impartial and call it like I see it, but I don’t even fool with the Cowboys like that. But after watching them this season, I got a couple things I gotta confess.
1. Marion Barber is that dude. I don’t think it’s possible to like football and NOT like to watch Marion Barber run the ball. Straight up, that dude is a manimal. Don’t get me wrong, I dig Westbrook and everything he brings to the table, but Marion Barber? He makes me feel sorry for the dudes who try to tackle him. I don’t even like the Cowboys, but I’d watch them fools every week just to see him punish defenders.
2. Number 81 is a straight-up hoss. I still don’t know where I’d put him all-time, but I’m willing to admit that some of that is just residual hate. The rest is because I don’t know that he’s better than #84. But I do know that if Terrell Owens ain’t the best wide receiver of his generation, he definitely got a legitimate claim to the title. I don’t care what you say, you cannot front on that dude. He’s the truth. I’ll say that as many touchdowns as he and Romo have, he’d probably have 1.5 times that had he stayed playing with Donovan, but dude is just a stone-cold football player, and I hate it when jive sportscasters try to deny him.
Their hate is gon’ turn me into a defender, if not an outright fan.
Still can’t stand the team they play for, but them dudes right there? They sho’ nuff.
