Drew Pearson Predicts All Texas Super Bowl: Texans vs Cowboys

In all fairness the Dallas Cowboys great and Ring of Honor inductee Drew Pearson is most likely unfairly loyal to the Cowboys. But it hasn’t stopped him from making a bold prediction of an All-Texas Super Bowl in 2014.

“Here’s my prediction: The Cowboys will win the NFC, go to the Super Bowl and coming out of the AFC is going to be the Houston Texans,” Pearson said during an appearance on ESPN Dallas 103.3 FM’s “Fitzsimmons and Durrett” on Tuesday. “And it’s going to be an all-Texas Super Bowl in New Jersey — in the winter, in the cold weather, in the snow and all that. Two dome teams, haven’t played in the cold weather all season, and now they’re going up to Jersey and play in the cold weather.”

“And that’s only if Houston makes it.”

Some would say Houston has more of a shot at the Super Bowl than the Dallas Cowboys do, but Pearson makes it sound like Houston is the long shot. Dallas has missed the playoffs the last 3 seasons and have one playoff win in 16 years.

“It’s time, you know? It’s time. They’re due,” said Pearson.

That sounds more like a fan complaining about the franchise’s direction, not a reason they’ll make the Super Bowl. But crazier things have happened.

“I think they’ve had just a few missing pieces on offense. Get a running game going, keep people healthy there, improvement in the offensive line. Romo passed for over 4,900 yards last season. It’s just a matter of getting that ball in the end zone. I just think they have what it takes on offense, and then defensively (with) the improvements there, I think the Cowboys have made the most upgrades with this team as anybody in the NFC East.

“So I think they have a great shot.”

But with all the Dwight Howard news and local rappers duking it out, is anyone tired of the Dallas versus Houston thing yet?
