FT. WORTH — With 40 bowl games this season, it’s easy for some to get lost in the shuffle, but one continues to stand out among the rest. The Lockheed Martin Armed Forces Bowl represents more than just football. It’s about national pride and honoring the men and women who make the ultimate sacrifice for our country.

Unfortunately, what the Armed Forces Bowl stands for also makes it a potential target for terroristic attacks, but this would be the wrong place for anyone to make an attempt.

As usual, heavy security was present at Amon G. Carter Stadium to ensure everyone’s safety. And with jets on hand, we’re talking heavy artillery.

But the biggest weapon in the stadium may have been attached to one quarterback’s shoulder. Jared Goff, the junior from Cal, showed off his cannon of an arm against Air Force Tuesday. In particular, a dime he threw at the end of the 1st quarter to put the Golden Bears up 14-7. It’s the type of throw that has some thinking that Goff could potentially be a top 5 pick.

Goff finished the game with 467 yds, 6 TDs and 0 interceptions.

With a loss against Washington Sunday, the Cowboys could potentially secure the 2nd overall pick in the next NFL draft, so the Cowboys may benefit from another military device — tanking.

If this season has proven anything, it’s that quarterback is definitely a position of need in Dallas.

Hey, the last time a team took a chance from a QB out of Cal, Aaron Rodgers, it turned out pretty well. Here’s to tanking!
