In 2000 the man from Penn State had signed a 3-year contract worth $1.2 million and surely he must have felt very happy to play for the Cowboys, though his father had not been the greatest fan of America's team at all.
But perhaps the four happy years with the Boys might have brought some changes.
During season 2000 Brandon Noble had shown 69 tackles, with a career-high 10 against the Eagles plus 1 sack and 10 QB pressures.
Season 2001 saw him active in all 16 games for a total of 56 tackles while he tied for second in sacks with 3.5.
In 2003 Brandon Noble had moved to the Redskins where an awful injury led to a staph infection that had almost caused a leg amputation what was pretty much the end of his fantastic career.
Back in Europe Brandon Noble had loved the "loud and noisy crowd" at Fire, that he had enjoyed so much in 1999.
In particular his first visit, when the Dragons had demolished the Rhein Fire in the season opener with a furious Lawrence Phillips.
In 1999 Troy Aikman had come across to Europe for a little Golf, some comments for FOX Sports and of course to observe the youth in action.
Brandon Noble had been the one, who had impressed most and Troy Aikman was sure, that he wouldn`t like to run into the fast mover on the field, who had almost ended up with soccer until his weight had turned out to become more suitable for the Football.

Brandon Noble had talked about his ups and downs at the 49ers while at that time he did not have any ideas about those 4 golden years at the Dallas Cowboys that were lined up for him when this video interview took place.
His dad as a core 49ers fan had even hated the Cowboys ... and his fav music comes from Metallica, Corn and similar alternative music.
