Former Dallas Cowboys star wide receiver Drew Pearson is very optimistic about the upcoming Cowboys season. The Ring of Honor member and three-time Pro Bowler predicted Tuesday that his former team will win 11 games in 2013.
And Pearson didn't stop there. The Cowboys haven't reached the playoffs since 2009 and have only one postseason victory since 1996, but The Original 88 told Fitzsimmons and Durrett on 103.3 KESN-FM that the Cowboys will also reach the Super Bowl, where they'll face the Houston Texans.
"It's going to be an all-Texas Super Bowl in New Jersey, in the winter, in the cold weather, in the snow and all that," Pearson said. "Two dome teams, haven't played in the cold weather all season, and now they're going up to Jersey and play in the cold weather."
The Texans prediction doesn't seem too bold. Houston has reached the postseason each of the last two seasons and they set a franchise record with 12 wins in 2012.
But the Cowboys? To go from consecutive 8-8 seasons to playing in the Super Bowl, it would certainly validate the Tony Romo contract extension and job security would be the farthest thing from Jason Garrett's mind.
"It's time. They're due," Pearson said. "Everybody else has had a chance, let's get these guys their opportunity. I just think there are a few missing pieces on offense. Get a running game going, keep people healthy there, improvement in the offensive line. Romo passed for over 4,900 yards last season. It's just a matter of getting that ball in the end zone.
"I just think they have what it takes on offense, and then defensively, the improvements there, I think the Cowboys have made the most upgrades with this football team as anybody in the NFC East. So I think they got a great shot. Keeping people healthy is going to be a big thing."

Tim MacMahon of ESPNDallas.com expects the Cowboys to sign linebacker Sean Lee to an extension before the start of the upcoming season.
Look for Lee to get a long-term contract extension before the beginning of the season. The Cowboys are looking for him to be a leader of this defense for a long time.
Lee is certainly a talented player, but if I were the Cowboys I would wait until...

I am so tired of hearing about the past of Dez Bryant. The past of the former first round pick of the Dallas Cowboys has received a lot of attention during his NFL career and Bryant has not always done the best job of staying out of news.
Bryant also shares my dislike about hearing about his past regularly.
“I just wanted to know why is my background relevant...

Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Cole Beasley is not the tallest player on the 53-man roster in Dallas, in fact he is the smallest. But the undersized slot receiver can jump as good as anyone else on the team. The evidence comes in the form of him throwing down a few dunks with ease. Hops for days.

Tweet Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Cole Beasley doesn’t look that intimidating on the football field. Standing just 5’8” and weighing only 180 pounds, his stature isn’t one that really screams elite athlete. Beasley caught just 15 passes in his rookie season last year for only 128 yards. However, this video of him throwing down some [...]
Dallas Cowboys fan site DCfanatic.com shared this little video of receiver Cole Beasley (you might remember him as the guy throwing up on the sidelines during a preseason game in 2012) getting his reverse windmill dunk on.
At 5′ 8″, Cole has amazing ups for his size:
If you were to guess a Dallas Cowboys receiver who could throw down in a game of basketball it is unlikely that Cole Beasley would be your first guess.
Maybe it should have been.
At 5’8″ the 24-year-old out of Southern Methodist can dunk a basketball with a mean reverse.
Beasley joined the Cowboys as an undrafted free agent in 2012 and caught 15 passes for 128 yards.
