'Stone Cold' Steve Austin wants to quarterback the Cowboys, and he should

Stone Cold told the Dallas Morning News he'd quarterback the Cowboys until Tony Romo gets back, and he makes a great case!

"I tell you what, I got some time on my hands. I could be there Sunday, playing the Philadelphia Eagles. I think I can line 'em up, throw for about 300, 400 yards. Get (Jason) Witten open, get Dez (Bryant) working. A lot of underneath routes. Give (Darren) McFadden the ball a few times. Maybe do a little end-around, fake the reverse pitchout, let me run downfield and Darren can throw me the ball. About 60 yards out, catch it in full stride and boom, spike it over the damn goalpost.

Like, try arguing with this:

Y'all saw me catch all those beers all those years -- damn-near never dropped any of them.

OK, actually though? The more we talk about it the worse this ideas actually sounds.

You know how much money I could have made playing professional football as a tight end? But I can't jump and I can't run fast. That was my problem.

Dang, yeah running and jumping is important. Just do it anyway, Dallas. It can't be any worse than what you're doing ...
