Sport Cowboys claim Eddie George as their own by misspelling his name
Dak Prescott, Dallas Cowboys reportedly making no progress on contract with deadline looming
The Dallas Cowboys have taken Dak Prescott on a roller coaster ride for the past two years with contract negotiations. With another NFL offseason underway, Jerry Jones and the team’s star quarterback somehow find themselves at the same place they were over a year ago. © Tim Heitman-USA TODAY Sports Dec 29, 2019; Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott (4) look on from the field before the game against Washington at AT&T Stadium. Last spring, the Cowboys placed the franchise tag on Prescott to buy time as the two sides discussed a long-term contract extension.
The Dallas Cowboys are getting roasted on Twitter for not only calling Eddie George a team legend, but also using the wrong name in a since-deleted tweet.
Known as America's Team, thesure haven't lived up to that name after going 6-10 last year and missing out on the postseason. The team has countless haters out there and the list is only growing this week following an Eddie George gaffe.
With George taking over as the head coach of Tennessee State,. George, a Cowboys legend, after spending only one season with the team? Give us a break.
Minneapolis officers line up to reject Chauvin's actions
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — The parade of Minneapolis police officers rejecting a former officer’s actions in restraining George Floyd continued at his murder trial, including a use-of-force instructor who said officers were coached to “stay away from the neck when possible.” Lt. Johnny Mercil on Tuesday became the latest member of the Minneapolis force to take the stand as part of an effort by prosecutors to dismantle the argument that Derek Chauvin was doing what he was trained to do when he put his knee on George Floyd’s neck last May.
Dallas claiming Eddie George to be a Cowboys legend is a complete joke
Let's be clear here. George is not a Cowboys legend. When you think of the running back, you of course think of Ohio State and the Tennessee Titans. Not Dallas, an organization he only played 13 games for.
To make things even worse here for the Cowboys, in their first tweet showing love to George, they referred to him as Eddie James. The intern who fired off this tweet either got fired or got quite the talking to. Regardless, that's two strikes for Dallas here.
George was with the Oilers/Titans from 1996-03, earning four trips to the Pro Bowl during that time. After a sensational career with the Buckeyes too, George was inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame in 2011.
For his NFL career, he rushed for 10,441 yards and 68 touchdowns. With Dallas, he recorded 132 rush yards and four scores. You mean to tell us those numbers are legendary? Absolutely not. That's like saying Jerry Rice is a Seattle Seahawks legend because he suited up for the team back in 2004. Nope, no chance.
Hundreds show up in Nebraska for fight over name Josh .
LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) — A fight over the name of Josh drew a crowd from around the country to a Nebraska park Saturday for a heated pool-noodle brawl. It all started a year ago when pandemic boredom set in and Josh Swain, a 22-year-old college student from Tucson, Arizona, messaged others who shared his name on social media and challenged them to a duel. Hundreds showed up at Air Park in Lincoln — a location chosen at random — to participate in the silliness.
