Legendary billionaire T. Boone Pickens just made one helluva prediction -- THE COWBOYS WILL WIN THE SUPER BOWL ... but it won't be Tony Romo who leads 'em to victory.
The 86-year-old business tycoon was out in D.C. yesterday when we started talking football -- and he told us the BEST PART of having the football stadium named after him at Oklahoma State.
And that's when asked Pickens -- who's made a ton of solid bets in his life -- to give us a hot tip about the NFL.
Check out what T. Boone has to say -- specifically about the QB situation in Dallas.
Wonder how Jerry Jones is gonna feel about Brandon Weeden now?
Dallas Cowboys RB
Asked Cop for Massage
... During Underwear Arrest
10/30/2014 6:16 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Dallas Cowboys running back Joseph Randle offered an officer $100 for a MASSAGE while he was being booked into jail for stealing underwear ... and it was all caught on tape.
It all went down at Frisco City Jail in Texas after the 22-year-old was busted for shoplifting cologne and undies from a nearby mall on Oct 13th.
To say Randle was acting bizarre during the booking process ... is kind of an understatement.
Some of the highlights on the video obtained by CBS DFW:
-- Randle to female booking officer: "If I give you $100, can you give me a massage?”
-- Randle to Agent (on phone): "I got jammed up. I need a… I need an attorney to get me a writ bond so I can make it to practice tomorrow."
-- Randle to male booking officer: "Hey, is this going to be on the news, you think?"
Randle was ultimately charged with misdemeanor theft. He was not allowed to keep the undies or the cologne.

Talk about pouring salt in the wound!!!
A Washington Redskins superfan grabbed a microphone at the DALLAS AIRPORT this morning and led the D.C.-bound crowd in a rendition of the team fight song ... and TMZ Sports has the footage.
The guy who grabbed the mic was in town for the Cowboys vs. Redskins game Monday night -- and was clearly still fired up about his team emerging victorious!
So, while waiting for his flight back to D.C., he grabbed a mic from the flight attendant's stand and asked all the Redskins fans who could hear his voice to join him in singing "Hail to the Redskins."
They did ... and it was LOUD!!
Meantime, the Cowboys fans sat there and listened ... helplessly.

10/21/2014 12:52 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Michael Sam's dream of being the first openly gay player to start a regular season NFL game took a major hit today ... with the rookie DE being cut from the Dallas Cowboys practice squad.
Sam, who was signed to the Cowboys after failing to make the St. Louis Rams 53 man roster, was released earlier today after Dallas signed linebacker Troy Davis.
Moments ago, Sam spoke out about the move releasing a statement via his Twitter account.
"I want to think the Jones family and the entire Cowboys organization for their opportunity, as well as my friends, family, teammates, and fans for their support. While this is disappointing, I will take the lessons I learned here in Dallas and continue to fight for an opportunity to prove that I can play every Sunday."

... We Can Feel It

The secret to beating the Dallas Cowboys?
Well, maybe he can help -- because NY Giants head coach Tom Coughlin turned to Phil's best song to help fire up his team this week ... so says linebacker Mark Herzlich.
Herzlich says Coughlin decided to play some music during practice this week to get the team ready for their HUGE game against the Dallas Cowboys ... and Tom decided Phil's jam could help pump up the intensity.
Mike Tyson approves.
Dallas Cowboys RB
Bragged About $1,000 Shoes
... Week Before Arrest
10/14/2014 9:47 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Dallas Cowboys running back Joseph Randle BRAGGED about owning several pairs of expensive shoes just days before he was busted for shoplifting -- claiming nice stuff made him feel good.
Randle was speaking to Mac Engel on 105.3 THE FAN Dallas/Ft. Worth last Friday -- when the NFL player, who makes just under $500k per year, said he's dropped 4-figs on Gucci shoes on several occasions.
Interesting ... considering he was arrested for allegedly stealing Gucci cologne from a Texas department store on Monday night ... along with 2 pairs of Polo underwear.
Check out the clip -- Randle also says he used to pride himself on dressing nice even when he had no money.
Can't buy fashion sense ... and apparently, you can't steal it either.

LeBron & Jamie Foxx
Dust Off Dallas Cowboys Gear
All Aboard the Celebrity Bandwagon!
10/13/2014 8:06 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
It's trendy to be a Dallas Cowboys fan again ... just ask LeBron James and Jamie Foxx.
After the 'Boys beat up on the World Champion Seahawks in Seattle last night ... the closet opened and the celebrity bandwagoners began spilling out.
LeBron and Jamie have admitted to being Cowboys fans in the past -- but hadn't posted a single picture on Instagram supporting the team ... until now.
Funny how that works.
Also, LeBron touts himself as a Browns fan as well ... funny, he wasn't wearing any Cleveland gear after THEIR big win over the Steelers yesterday.
One guy who HAS been down with Big D all season long -- former "Dallas" star Josh Henderson ... who DEFENDED Tony Romo even when everyone else was calling for his head.
NFL Star Orlando Scandrick
With 'Basketball Wives' Star
10/6/2014 7:01 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Two big victories for Dallas Cowboys stud Orlando Scandrick ... first, he beat the Texans -- and then, he GOT BACK TOGETHER WITH HIS EX!
Just two months after "Basketball Wives: LA" star Draya Michele kicked him to the curb, the two were back in each other's arms in Dallas this weekend.
Michele went to the game -- rooted for Orlando -- and even sat with his family members.
Afterward, she posted a pic on Instagram with the caption, "We might not HAVE IT ALL TOGETHER, but TOGETHER we HAVE IT ALL."
Back before the split in August, Draya had said the two were close to marriage.
Wonder if they're gonna pick up where they left off.

Cowboys QB Tony Romo still has the full support of "his people" in Texas ... so says one of the stars of "Dallas" Josh Henderson ... who says he's got a "good feeling" about this season.
Henderson -- who also starred as Nicollette Sheridan's nephew on "Desperate Housewives" -- was out in Hollywood this weekend ... and explained why he's standing by Romo ... even though the guy started off pretty bad.
FYI -- TNT announced it had cancelled "Dallas" just a few hours before we shot Josh ... so, props to the guy for being in such a good mood despite the bad news.
