On Friday, Michael Irvin sent Cowboy Nation into a freenzy when he went on WEEI’s “Dale & Keefe to share what he termed “shocking discussions” that he had with “very significant people.”
“I am telling you right now, at the Super Bowl in Miami, some very significant people that I had conversations (with were) leaning in that same direction. It was shocking. I had a vodka cranberry in my hand and when they said it to me I put the drink down and said, ‘Let’s talk a little bit more about this.’
“I promise you, I had a conversation with people, I can’t tell you who, about that same scenario going down.”
Obviously, this set in motion weekend long rumors that Brady was in fact on his way to Dallas and Dak on his way out.
I wrote my take on Brady v. Dak on Friday and it hasn’t changed since — it would be the worst mistake in Jerry’s entire career of owning the Dallas Cowboys if he got rid of Dak for Brady. To throw away a franchise QB1 who not only has proven himself, but has a solid ten years left in his prime, in order to take a washed up, game manager for one year. No thanks.
But unfortunately, Jerry Jones is delusional. After all, the guy wanted to draft Johnny Manziel with the 16th overall pick of the 2014 draft. So, even though I, you and everyone in Cowboy country knows it’s a horrible move, I can’t possibly say the same for Jerry.
But then boom. This morning Irvin starts walking back his comments:
Clearly, Irvin was just feeling himself Friday and wanted to spew off some scorching hot takes. He got a little carried away. We’ve all been there before.
But if this isn’t enough for you have a peaceful Sunday nap knowing Brady will not be in a Cowboys uniform, here’s a nice quote from Stephen Jones that should put you right to sleep:
But while we can now officially rule out Brady to the Cowboys, I cannot say the same for Brady to the Astros:
Just looks too natural not to be a possibility.
