The Cowboys are going to have Drew Pearson make one their draft pick announcements.

http://www.star-telegram.com/sports/nfl/dallas-cowboys/cowboys-corner-blog/article146822729.html

They should have Nate Wright walk up to the podium, then Pearson come out and push him out of the way and announce the pick.


No, Wright would come and jokingly try and stop Pearson from simply making it to the podium but he'd fall down again untouched.


Nope, it was one of the most blatant pushups of all-time considering the stakes.

Pearson has already admitted he pushed off.

Todd I don't know if what Shakey says is true, but I simply can't fathom how you can watch that play and think Pearson didn't push off.


Because my powers of observation are above reproach.

This push off discussion has been going on for a long time. It was just 4 months ago that for the first time Pearson admitted contact.

Here is the video

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AQfyJBJoLQs&feature=related

"Pearson pushed off Nate Wright on the play, but it was either their last chance or very close to it ... What did they have to lose? The push was apparent, and there were two officials on the catch so, in that sense, we were victims. ... On the other hand, it was a great play. Pearson must have been a basketball player at some point, because that was a basketball play. He didn't push too soon ... he waited until the ball was almost there, until he and Nate were both in the air. Then he pushed off, and Nate went on the ground. It he had pushed while they were still running, he wouldn't have knocked Nate off stride. But it was a remarkable play by Pearson ... jump, push a man away and catch the football, all in the same motion. It couldn't have been easy."
— Bud Grant, Bud: The Other Side of the Glacier

"Nate Wright fell on the play, and they said I pushed him. You know, there was contact. When I brought my arm around, there was contact. And that might have been what knocked him off balance. But there was never, ever any deliberate push or anything of that nature. How can you push somebody and make the catch at the same time? I'm not that good."
— Drew Pearson, Cowboys Have Always Been My Heroes

"It WAS a push-off."
— Jim Marshall, Star-Tribune, Jan 8, 2000

He caught it basically with one hand against his leg

Thanks DeLain, it was obviously a push-off at the biggest moment.

If this would have happened in the past 20 years, it'd be a highlight of every pre-game show for every football telecast.

That's half the battle. Pearson never admits to a blatant push off as some posters continue to say he did. We can put that to bed.

Correct you are right. Pearson just chuckles every time he says it. You can say it was just a chuckle...but why even chuckle?

I've been a Viking fanatic since the day I came out of the womb in 1961.
No way, no how .... I ever throw a flag on that play if I'm standing there as an official.
I saw the play as it happened.
My entire household went into mourning for days.
I've studied and watched that play a million times over the years. Ad nauseum.
And I still wouldn't throw a flag.
Fault? I blame Nate Wright more than I'd blame Pearson or the Refs.
And I'm a guy who complains about how we get treated by refs, a lot.

Paul Krause has somehow escaped blame as well.

I think he might have even had a Vikings hat on when he was drafted. Of course after the network did a ten minute piece on him, including begging the Vikings to pick him.

I sat in my parents living room as a 13 year old kid watching the game with my dad and nobody will ever convince me that Pearson didn't push off.

And despite some here's inability to acknowledge Pearsons chuckles at the "Push-off", this is the acknowledgement that he DID PUSH OFF!

I hate to say it, but if you're looking for a complete admittance of it, you must be a Trump supporter.

Probably draft misinformation.

If not, as boy scoutish as we tend to be ... Mixon is on 95% of other draftboards too.

Exactly, I wouldn't believe a damn thing right now..

My prediction is (And I tend to shy away from predictions) we will never know our interest in Mixon as he'll be gone well before we could select him.
