Halftime Heat: Monday, January 17, 2022

On Monday's Halftime Heat, Ian Beckles "kind of" feels bad for fans of the Dallas Cowboys, while Jay Recher gives you his top 10 sports stars from this weekend.

If you are a Dallas Cowboys fan please block your ears or just holla la la la la la la for the next 50 seconds or so, because you won’t enjoy this.

I’ve told y’all that I grew up a huge Dallas Cowboys fan. I am certainly not that today. But I’m not sure what to think anymore.

The press is clearly not going to stop putting the Dallas Cowboys on a pedestal, but for God’s sake I’m starting to kind of feel bad for their fan base, kinda.

The same Boys fans that pelted their players with debris on the way off the field yesterday in Jerryville, the same fan base who has to get in everybody’s face to tell them how great your Cowboys are, the same fan base who hasn’t celebrated a Championship since yours truly was in the league. 

Here’s the reality of it Boys fans, your 75-million-dollar Dallas quarterback is average, your 18-million-dollar running back is below average, your o line is no longer great and you guys are not getting better, you’re getting worse. 

Do any of you Cowboys fans think Mike McCarthy can coach? 

If so, why? The phone lines are open!

McCarthy made at least a half dozen boneheaded decisions last season that cost his team. 

Sorry Cowboy fans but you guys know that you will never win again with Jerry Jones making the decisions because Jones will never bring in a real coach, because REAL coaches aren’t puppets and Jerry Jones needs a puppet. 

Sleep tight Cowboy fans and rest up for next season. It will undoubtedly be another season of gassing up your talented, but underachieving bunch. 

Go Bucs!

All right, it’s time for my Top 10 Stars of the Weekend!

#10 Hideki Matsuyama – 5 shots back on the back nine on Sunday at the Sony Open in Hawaii & then wins it in the playoff with a 3 wood to 3 feet for an eagle. Impressive.
#9 Maddie Nolan - #11 Michigan smoked #8 Maryland in their house 69-49 yesterday and Nolan led the way with 7 three pointers. You go Maddie!
#8 RJ Barrett – the Knicks third year guard scored 26 to lead New York to their 3rdstraight win in a 117-108 victory in Atlanta on Saturday. Barrett had 32 & 31 in wins over Dallas & San Antonio, respectively, last week.
#7 Philippe Coutinho – after crashing and burning in Barcelona, the former Liverpool wunderkind came on as a sub for his former teammate/now coach Steven Gerrard’s Aston Villa and scored the equalizer in a 2-2 draw against Manchester United on Saturday.
#6 TyTy Washington – Washington scored 28 points in #18 Kentucky’s 107-79 blowout victory over #22 Tennessee on Saturday. The Wildcats are a problem.
#5 Zac Taylor – after the Bengals win on Saturday, the head coach went to a local bar, Mt. Lookout Tavern, to award them an honorary game ball for the team’s first playoff win since 1991.
#4 Martin Necas – the Hurricanes winger had a goal and an assist on his 23rdbirthday as Carolina defeated Vancouver 4-1 on Saturday to snap a two-game skid.
#3 Josh Allen – 21 of 25 for 308 yards and 5 TDs through the air, 6 carries for 66 yards on the ground too. The Bills didn’t punt or attempt a field goal in their 47-17 thrashing of the Patriots.
#2 The USF Co-Ed Cheerleading Team – Champa Bay adds another one! For the 2ndstraight year the USF Co-ed Cheer Team are National Champs! Congrats to Coach Gillian Guadanino and the team! Go Bulls.
#1 Donna Kelce – mom of the year. She starts the day in Tampa to watch her son Jason play for Philadelphia and then boards a plane to Kansas City to see her son Travis play against Pittsburgh. And then she hops on the postgame zoom with Travis. Good for you Donna! Your boys are lucky to have such an awesome mom.
