Even rookies know they can punk Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Roy Williams.
The often criticized wide out wanted rookie Dez Bryant to carry his shoulder pads after practice – - and Bryant told Roy, “No.”
“I’m not doing it,” Bryant said. “I feel like I was drafted to play football, not carry another player’s pads.”
“If I was a free agent, it would still be the same thing. I just feel like I’m here to play football. I’m here to try to help win a championship, not carry someone’s pads. I’m saying that out of no disrespect to [anyone].”
Damn Roy, it’s one thing to get punked by the opposition, but your own teammate? And a rookie at that!
How long before Bryant takes Williams spot in the starting lineup?
Better yet, how long before the Cowboys just cut Williams and admit the Detroit Lions got the better end of that trade in 2008.

Game is still over for “Pacman” in Dallas.
After reporting were floating around on the web that Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones was mulling a possible return for Adam “Pacman” Jones, a statement came out today from Cowboy land that was simple and to the point:
“I have no plans to bring Adam back.”
… for now is how that statement should have ended.
Trust me, I would like to believe Jerry Jones but he has a track record for making dumb roster moves, such as bringing in “Pacman” in the first place.
Let’s see who gets a contract first: “Pacman” or Mike Vick.

In case you’re keeping track at home …
Dallas Cowboy related reality television shows in 09 = 2
Playoff victories since 1996 = 0
As if Michael Irvin’s reality show wasn’t bad enough where an “average Joe” will have the chance of making the Cowboys, but now word comes along that Terrell Owens is getting his own reality show on VH1.
The show will also feature Monique Jackson and Kita Williams, his publicist and best friend.
Three divas enjoying the NFL offseason sounds like compelling and riveting reality television.

Have the Dallas Cowboys finally come to their senses?
Well, more like offensive coordinator Jason Garrett.
Garrett, who most folks within the NFL think will someday take over as head coach of the Cowboys, reportedly wants Terrell Owens gone.
I mean, can you blame him?
Numbers aside, Owens has been a cancer during stops in San Francisco and Philadelphia and he tried his best to bring down the Cowboys this season with his spat over Tony Romo playing favorites with tight end Jason Witten.
And at 35, he’s slowly reaching the downside of his career.
With Roy Williams and Patrick Crayton, the Cowboys have a decent 1-2 WR duo without the headaches of the self-absorbed and volatile Owens.
Owner Jerry Jones made a great decision by dumping Adam “Pacman” Jones; let’s see if he makes it 2-for-2 with dumping T.O.

Game over, Pacman.
The Dallas Cowboys released Adam “Pacman” Jones on Wednesday after details emerged of an alleged shooting in Atlanta in 2007.
ESPN reporter John Barr contacted the NFL, the Dallas Cowboys and Jones’ attorneys about a piece that is scheduled to air on “Outside The Lines” on Sunday.
Three Atlanta-area men allege that Jones arranged for someone to shoot at them two months after the football player was suspended by NFL commissioner Roger Goodell in 2007 and four months after the “Make It Rain” incident at a Las Vegas strip club.
Three strikes (or in Pacman’s case, 11 strikes) and you’re out, Pacman.
If the information in the report is true, NFL commissioner Roger Goodell needs to stand by his word and drop the hammer on Jones and ban him for life.

Playa Hater is back from a hiatus and just in time for the NFL playoffs.
And just in time to bash the Dallas Cowboys.
The Detroit Lions think the Dallas Cowboys rolled over and played dead.
It’s easy to point the finger at quarterback Tony Romo, volatile wide receiver Terrell Owens or even head coach Wade Phillips, but the real reason why Dallas hasn’t won a playoff game in over 10 years is because of owner Jerry Jones.
A little less plastic surgery on your grill and a little more time on building a football franchise, Jerry.
If the loss wasn’t bad enough, Romo collapsed in the locker room after the game:
Moments after his team fell flat on its face in the biggest game of the season, Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo collapsed in the shower due to a rib injury, according to Monday’s Dallas Morning News.
Afterward, in what the newspaper described as a frantic scene, Romo suddenly collapsed in the shower. Athletic trainer Jim Maurer and his staff rushed in to help the fallen quarterback.
A stretcher was wheeled in, but Romo eventually was helped to his feet and taken into the training room.
Pretty much sums up the Cowboys season.
Face down. Ass up.

Game over, Pacman.
NFL commissioner Roger Goodell has dropped the hammer again on the troubled cornerback.
Goodell has suspended Pacman Jones for at least four games following an alcohol-related incident on Oct. 8 in a Dallas hotel room.
How this clown is still in the NFL is beyond me.
I’m all for a second chance, but Jones has proven time and time again that he’s not mature enough for the responsibilities that come with playing in the NFL.
Chris Henry, you’re next.
