Pearson says Cowboys still have a shot at Super Bowl
Drew Pearson isn't writing off the Cowboys' chances of making it to the Super Bowl. "This Cowboys team has the potential, despite what happened Sunday in Washington," Pearson told a joint meeting of the Hotel Association of Tarrant County and Tarrant County Restaurant Association Tuesday.
Just for good measure, Pearson has the perfect motivator for the Cowboys' quarterback, Tony Romo. "See this ring?" Pearson told the crowd at the new Hurst Conference Center, showing off his 1978 Super Bowl ring. "I show this to Tony Romo every chance I get. You got the $67 million. I got the ring."
And then later in his talk: "Let me tell you, this thing still works in the clubs today."
Pearson's job Tuesday was to give the hoteliers and restaurateurs a glimpse of what the Super Bowl buildup is like for players: "It's like you never set foot on the field before," Pearson said.
And in response to a question of what it was like to play for Coach Tom Landry: "I built my business based on the Dallas Cowboys. I built my leadership based on Tom Landry."
