Sadly, the Dallas Cowboys passed
up an opportunity to draft
Johnny Manziel

USA Today, by Chris Chase

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 5/8/2014 10:34:33 PM

The NFL draft has never been, and will never be, as exciting as the 10 minutes when the Dallas Cowboys were on the clock with Johnny Manziel still on the board. Jerry Jones drafting Johnny Football to compete with an aging, hurting Tony Romo? It would have been the rare NFL story to warrant the hype and drama it would have received. And, oh, that hype would have been spectacular. Johnny Football in Jerry World would have made Tebowmania seem like a passing fad. There were rumors all week that Dallas might take Manziel. Those reports were refuted, but that

Jones doesn´t want him and basically said so prior to the draft. No surprise here. Cleveland needs a Johnny Football. Johnny Football needs to invigerate Cleveland.

Romo has to have some really juicy blackmail on Jones.

That is the only way to explain why Jones not only gave him a huge raise a couple of years ago, but passed on this chance to get millions of dollars in free publicity by drafting Johnny Football.

That, or Romo and Jones have a "special" relationship that would qualify them to host a show on HGTV...

If Dallas had drafted JM,there would have been an ongoing QB controversy as soon as Romo screwed up and that wouldn´t take long.JM needed to go where he could play right away and what better place than Cleveland.

How about The Jets passing on Johnny Football? They have an over-the-hill Michael Vick and a mediocre Geno Smith. The so-called experts on ESPN didn´t even deem it important enough to mention.

Agree with the jets, not so much on Romo. 8th highest QB rating on a mediocre team last year, and consistently gives them a chance to win. Dallas´ defense is horrible and they picked an offensive lineman.

Romo is in his mid-30s but then look at Peyton, does anyone think mid-30s is over the hill?

We had Cowboy season tickets for forty years. This year, we gave them up, eating the investment in the seat license, too. The seats and parking cost too much money for so little return on the field. Let others subsidize Jerry Jones´ everlasting ego trip.

For those that do not listen to Dennis Miller:

He has stepped back from allowing both SPORTS and POLITICS rule his world.

He says they are both big business, and both have corrupted our sensibilities (my words, not his).

I´m doing the same. I can no longer spend all my waking hours worrying about the NFL or whose got the latest sh*t on their political opponent.

Why not spend more time with your family on Sundays? At the Pearly Gates, you´ll be glad you did.

James´ return to Cleveland could
complicate GOP
Associated Press, by Philip Elliott    Original Article

WASHINGTON— Celebrations aside, LeBron James´ decision to return to the Cleveland Cavaliers of the NBA could complicate the Republican Party´s plan to nominate its presidential contender on Lake Erie´s shores in 2016. If James leads his team into post-season play then, the GOP could find its preferred June 28 start date for the convention impossible because of the site conflict. Convention planners typically take weeks to customize the space with lights, seats and the traditional balloon drop from the rafters — impossible tasks if the Cavaliers go into post-season play. That leaves Republicans looking at their backup date of July

The tabloid headline might read something like this: Sexiest Man Alive Becomes Angriest Man Alive. This week, George Clooney condemned The Daily Mail, the British newspaper, after it reported that the Lebanese mother of his fiancée objected to their wedding on religious grounds. Relatives had joked about the death of the bride if she defied her mother’s wishes, the article said. “We have family members all over the world, and the idea that someone would inflame any part of that world for the sole reason of selling papers should be criminal,” Mr. Clooney wrote in a response published in USA

Already under attack by critics who say he’s lost interest in his job, President Obama added fuel to the fire on Thursday with a drowsy appearance in Texas. A heavy-lidded Obama struggled to keep his head up during a one-on-one talk in an Austin cafe with a college student whose parents lost their jobs last year. Kinsey Button, a junior at the University of Texas at Austin, huddled with the president in a booth at the Magnolia Cafe, where he ordered hot tea and she sipped coffee while discussing her parents’ plight. The meeting was a break for Obama, who

Leaders of the Congressional Hispanic Caucus pushed back hard against one of their own on Friday, saying Rep. Henry Cuellar (D-Texas) doesn´t speak for the group in calling to make it easier to deport Central American children amassing at the southern border. "Henry Cuellar does not represent the Congressional Hispanic Caucus," CHC Chairman Ruben Hinojosa (D-Texas) said during a press briefing. "He´s a Blue Dog; he comes to the meetings once in a long time." Rep. Luis Gutierrez (D-Ill.) emphasized that Cuellar is "a friend and a colleague of ours." But, he added, "we disagree with him on this issue."

Not counting instances when he quoted a letter from a citizen or cited dialogue from a movie, President Barack Obama used the first person singular--including the pronouns "I" and "me" and the adjective "my"--199 times in a speech he delivered Thursday vowing to use unilateral executive action to achieve his policy goals that Congress would not enact through the normal, constitutional legislative process. “It is lonely, me just doing stuff,” Obama said at the speech in Austin, Texas, according to the official transcript and video posted on the White House website. “I’m just telling the truth now,” Obama told the

Washington — President Barack Obama met with two dozen companies Friday, including several major foreign automakers, that have agreed to help suppliers with access to financing — in a bid to help many small companies grow.

Some surprisingly strong support from the Obama administration for Israel´s right to respond to Hamas missile attacks. But Prime Minister Netanyahu declined President Obama´s offer to mediate between the warring parties, saying a cease fire "wasn´t even on the agenda." Jerusalem Post: The United States is prepared to facilitate a cessation of hostilities between Israel and Hamas in the Gaza Strip, US President Barack Obama told Prime Minister Benyamin Netanyahu by phone today. In the call, Obama "reiterated the United States’ strong condemnation of continuing rocket fire into Israel by Hamas and other terrorist organizations

The top White House spokesman on Friday tried to staunch a torrent of snarky commentary this week poking fun at President Obama´s assertion that he wasn´t interested in a border “photo op." Veteran CBS News White House Correspondent Mark Knoller peppered White House press secretary Josh Earnest with questions about whether Obama really intended to eschew photo ops in general. “His view is that solving problems is most important, and solving problems is what somebody who´s exhibiting leadership is focused on,” Earnest said. “And that´s what the president was doing when he was in Dallas on Wednesday.

LOS ANGELES— Authorities say “Harry Potter” actor Dave Legeno has died from heatstroke in California’s Death Valley. He was 50. Legeno played the werewolf Fenrir Greyback in three “Harry Potter” films.

WASHINGTON— A key Republican said Friday that President Barack Obama´s multibillion-dollar emergency request for the border is too big to get through the House, as a growing number of Democrats rejected policy changes Republicans are demanding as their price for approving any money. The developments indicated that Obama faces an uphill climb as he pushes Congress to approve $3.7 billion to deal with tens of thousands of unaccompanied kids who´ve been arriving at the U.S.-Mexico border from poor and increasingly violent Central American nations. And they suggested that even as the children keep coming, any final resolution is likely weeks

Hagel was asked at a Pentagon news conference about reports that Iranian and Russian planes are flying combat missions over northern Iraq and why Washington is not seeking to coordinate with them. "We are aware of the Iranian and Russian efforts to help the Iraqis, but we are not involved in coordinating any missions," (Snip) A defense official said later that Hagel did not mean to suggest

Despite fiery statements issued by Hamas spokesmen over the past 48 hours, it was obvious Tuesday night that the Islamist movement was searching for ways to rid itself of the current escalation. Hamas feels that it has been forced into a confrontation with Israel – one that it did not want at this stage because of its increased isolation and financial crisis. The massive Israeli air strikes on the Gaza Strip over the past 24 hours have surprised Hamas and other Palestinian groups. Hamas apparently expected a limited response to the recent rocket attacks on Israeli cities and towns. But as the

President Obama on Thursday claimed he is “not that partisan of a guy” as he mocked calls in the Republican Party for his impeachment. The president spent much of his address in Austin, Texas, hammering congressional Republicans, saying they have "blocked or voted down every serious idea to strengthen the middle class." “I’m just telling the truth now," Obama said. "I don´t have to run for office again so I can just let her rip.” He teed off on Republicans such as Sarah Palin who have suggested in recent days that he be impeached, and dismissed Speaker John Boehner´s (R-Ohio) proposed lawsuit

In an appearance on Fox News Channel’s “Special Report” on Wednesday, Sen. Jeff Flake (R-AZ) discussed the current state of affairs surrounding the issue of immigration. Flake, the guest of the show’s occasionally occurring “Center Seat” segment, admitted the rise of a populist movement opposing any immigration reform movement that included a version of amnesty. However, he admitted to being perplexed as to why there’s such an opposition stating there’s a need for not only low-skill labor “particularly in the agricultural areas and hospitality areas,” but high-skill labor of “those in the STEM fields.” Partial transcript as follows: STEPHEN HAYES, Weekly Standard: You

A cargo train used by Mexicans and Central Americans to travel toward the U.S. border derailed in the southern Mexican state of Oaxaca on Wednesday, stranding about 1,300 migrants, emergency services said. Many of the migrants aboard were young people and nobody was injured when the train nicknamed "the Beast" came off the tracks, a spokesman for local emergency services said. Since last October, more than 50,000 unaccompanied minors, most from El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras, have been caught illegally crossing the southwest border of the United States. Children say that they are fleeing violence at home and hope that they will be

The 26-year-old veteran of two tours in Afghanistan was finally able to tell his story to a judge, after his case had been delayed by both Mexico´s unpredictable legal system and his own trouble settling on a lawyer. It was not immediately clear what Tahmooressi said at the evidentiary hearing, which was closed to the public. The next hearing in the case is
