Former Dallas Cowboys Coach Joe Avezzano was more than a "celebrity coach"

Joe Avezzano is dead at age 68. He reportedly died of a heart attack in Milan, Italy, where he was coaching the Milan Seamen of the Italian Football League. Bill Parcells thinks he is always right. When it comes to football, he is right more than he is wrong, I suppose. But he was wrong […]

Stop me if you have heard this before: “We’ll make some changes; I’ll assure you we’ll make changes. When you work for yourself, there’s not but one thing to change — that’s what’s in that mirror.” This was what Jerry Jones told WFAA Channel 8 News, after the New York Giants whipped the Atlanta Falcons […]

Jerry Jones is the Dallas Cowboys GM, but Who Really Owns the Team?

The Dallas Cowboys are under new ownership, and have been for awhile now. No, I am not reporting that the Jones family has sold one of the world’s most valuable sports franchises.

Dallas Cowboys Lose to Phoenix Cardinals in Desert Debacle

Historically, the Cardinals have struggled to win football games anywhere (with one brief Kurt Warner-induced respite) unless […]

Jerry Jones Belittles Jimmy Johnson in Defense of Jason Garrett

Jerry Jones ought to have the world by the tail. If you are a sports fan and a fan of financial security, notoriety and power, you would likely trade places with him in a heartbeat. But Jones’ thirst for recognition is beyond insatiable: it is irrational. Despite being the owner of three Lombardi trophies and […]

Dallas Cowboys DC Rob Ryan Has His Father's Eyes and His Renegade Spirit

It remains to be seen whether Rob Ryan has the ability to coach up a defense as brilliantly as his dad Buddy Ryan. One thing that is not in question is whether he is a renegade like his crusty old progenitor. In his first-ever press conference as the Cowboys’ defensive coordinator, Rob Ryan bragged about […]

Mommas, Don't Let your Cowboys Grow Up To Be Babies

In the past month, I have been privileged to talk to such legendary Cowboys as Randy White, Emmitt Smith and Jimmy Johnson. To a man, when the conversation turned to what went wrong with the 2010 Cowboys, the answer was that they were too soft, too undisciplined and just plain sloppy.
