Junior Listens Carefully

This is why you have got to love The Ticket.

On Friday -- maybe it was Thursday, my drives to work kinda blend together -- Junior Miller played a clip from a Wade Phillips press conference where he ends a sentence with a dismissive reference to criticism of the Cowboys' recent indifferent play.

From what was little more than Phillips's inflection in those few words, Junior perceived a great deal of what is wrong with the Cowboys -- Wade as Dad whose Boys can do no wrong.  It was an elegant, perceptive analysis, and when he replayed it, you sensed that he was exactly right. 

You don't hear or read that kind of analysis anywhere else.  Not in the newspapers, not in the blogs, and certainly not on any other sports-talk channel.  Sweet stroke, Junior.
