The saying, “everything’s bigger in Texas” was truly brought to life when Jerry Jones built Cowboys Stadium.
“Jerry World” as some call it is the biggest domed stadium in the world, has the world’s largest column-free interior, and at one point in time, it had the world’s largest high-definition video display. It honestly is a marvelous structure.
However, Jones’ ego is going to take a blow because his stadium will no longer have the largest high-definition video display in Texas, much less the world.
No, that honor will go to our neighbors right down the road on Interstate-45, the Houston Texans. Thanks to a vote from the Harris County Sports and Convention Corp., Reliant Stadium will now be the home of the biggest high-definition video boards in the NFL.
How does that make you feel Cowboys fans?
Not too long ago, the Texans took former Dallas Cowboys head coach Wade Phillips and made him the team’s defensive coordinator. The Texans gave Phillips a much more talented defensive squad, and he rewarded them with a No. 1 defense.
Not going to lie, that one kind of stung. Mainly because I never thought Phillips was the problem behind the Cowboys’ lack of production on the field, but that’s a-whole-nother story.
During the preseason, there was a poll, which said the Texans were the best football team in Texas. I chuckled.
Since then the Texans have been more than just the best team in Texas, they’ve been a staple in the NFL. They’ve taken the time to build a championship caliber team and are sitting pretty as the AFC’s top team.
I’ll end with this, mainly because I’m aggravated that the Cowboys will have to play second fiddle to the Texans, again.
It’s time for this mighty juggernaut to rise again, and it starts with beating the snot out of the New Orleans Saints on Sunday.
