Ask a Cowboy Fan anything. As penance for some untoward comments made on Blogging The Boys, I have been sent here to answer any and all questions you might have. There are also a few other Cowboy fans who will join me in serving my "punishment." Just a bit about me: I have never been to Philadelphia. I've never thrown a battery-filled snowball (or a plain battery itself). Cheese steaks are fine but I think Cheez Wiz is kinda gross. I'm a native Texan, transplanted now, but I grew up a devoted Cowboy fan. Yes, I still think we're "America's Team" (just look at the TV ratings). I hate Mike Vick. (I know he served his time and deserves an opportunity to earn a living but I'll never like the guy.) Our cheerleaders are the prettiest in the NFL. Our stadium is the best in the world. Our owner is awesome (but our GM is questionable). What else? Ask away. I've been to many games and saw both Old-School and New-School greats (from many teams). I'm a good-natured soul (paying of a debt by posting here) and welcome general questions or humor directed at either myself or Cowboy fans in general. You'll see a few folks from BTB (mostly Aggie Man) who will also pop on here to give their answers to questions from y'all Eagle fans. So.... ask away.

Are you kidding me?? Julius Peppers got 35 Million in 2010

2

How in the name of Tom Landry's hat can the NFL pop the Cowboys for a 17 million dollar "uncapped" year contract and then give that money to a team like the Bears who gave Julius FREAKING Peppers 35 MILLION DOLLARS in the first year of his deal (bonus + salary)?!? WHAT? Are you kidding me? Here's Julius Peppers real money numbers for his contract: 2010: 34.9 2011: 13.8 2012: 11.3 2013: 15.3 2014: 16.3 2015: 18.8 That's just beyond ridiculous. We're supposed to give the Bears money? Really? Did Jerry sleep with Goodel's wife while he was at the combine or something? What is going on?

Ted "Motor City Madman" Nugent franchised!

7

According to ProFootballTalk Uncle Ted has a "Stranglehold" on the kicking job for the Cleveland Browns. Perhaps the writer was suffering from "Cat Scratch Fever" and mistook Ted for Mike Nugent? However, I'm gonna believe that the city that has the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame (and the team that pretty much stinks) is making a BIG, BOLD move here and letting Ted try his hand at kicking!

BTB Block option

8

Hey guys, is there a way to block certain users from showing up on the post? Some blogs have that feature but I can't find/don't see if BTB has that option for users. Am I just missing it, or does it not exist? Also, look 99.99% of the folks on this blog are great. But, there are one or two knuckleheads that I'd rather just not read. Muchos Grouchos! Jed

Combine Drug Testing

13

(Link goes bact to BTB) I have a question. Are players drug tested at the Combine or not? I'm wondering if, because they aren't yet "employees" of the NFL are they subject to tests, or if the NFL conducts drug screening as part of their "interview" of a player? Does anyone know? If so are the results made available before the draft to the teams? If not conducted, why not? I also welcome your thoughts on this aspect of the draft.

Janoris Jenkins to Cowboys???

40

Ok, I've been reading folks here on BTB talk up drafting Janoris Jenkins and have seen more than a few mock drafts that put him with the Cowboys. Can I just say: Dear God NO! The dude already has FOUR kids. Yes, FOUR! (Almost as many arrests as kids.) Can we please not draft this dude? I don't want him. He's gonna be a train wreck for whatever team he lands on.
