Stephen Jones joined Elf and Slater on 105.3 The Fan this morning was asked which Cowboy is going to make the biggest difference tonight as compared to last year against the Giants.
His answer. “I think Brandon Carr would come to my mind, the difference he can make in the secondary in terms of bringing something new in terms of our pass defense”.
Fairly understated as usual for the Executive VP/COO, but don’t expect the impact on the field to be. This story has not received enough attention during training camp, allow me to set the scene. The Cowboys have a weapon at the CB position again, and when it’s proven how much better the team is with Brandon Carr, he will be viewed as one of the greatest signings ever. And I’m not just talking better than Mike Vanderjagt, I’m going all the way to the top. Better signing than Deion Sanders.
Here’s why. The Sanders signing was the icing on the cake which in effect guaranteed the Cowboys had the best team and it wasn’t close. It clinched the third Superbowl. They could have won it without him and surely would have been very good and relevant.
The Brandon Carr signing could be much more historically significant because if and when the team has success, he will be seen as the key player that helped end a decade and a half of ineptitude. A stretch that is threatening to leave a generation of potential Cowboys fans without any memories of their domination. The Cowboys will always hold it down in Texas, but what comes of the brand on a national scale if we hit two decades with no more than a divisional round appearance?
Carr is no superstar or even household name yet, but his impact will be massive considering how enormous the team’s need was at the position. Remember the last time these teams were on the field, the season ended, and the Cowboys best CB got hurdled by a portly FB named Bear Pascoe.
