Why would the Cowboys visit Orange, Texas?
Cowboys' new head coach Wade Phillips is from Orange, Texas.
Who else might be from around here?
Former Cowboys head coach Jimmy Johnson is from Port Arthur.
Phillips is the third head coach from Texas. Y'all might have heard of the other one. His name is Tom Landry.
Landry and Johnson each won two Super Bowls for the Cowboys. The Cowboys have won five Super Bowls. So, four of five wins are from Texas coaches and two of five are already from Southeast Texas.
I think Jones may be expecting at least another pair from the son of Houston Oilers' former coach "Bum" Phillips. In regular season play this year, the Cowboys are 2-0.
However, I still haven't watched an NFL game (or bought Canon products) since the NFL vestvertising program. Yes, it's small, and PJs can put tape over the logo, but it's still silly.
Enough for now,
