You can always tell when it is a slow news day in the NFL. Someone at Bleacher Report or ESPN or, in this case, The Sporting News comes out with a list. And why not? Lists are great fun. They cause a stir, create debate and generally keep the football stew stirred until it is […]

Dallas Cowboys former quarterback Troy Aikman laments the selfishness of Jerry Jones and Jimmy Johnson

Solomon, one of greatest authors of wisdom tidbits in human history, wrote in Proverbs 16:18: “Pride goes before destruction, and a haughty spirit before a fall.” In a recent interview with Rich Eisen, Troy Aikman made the most poignant statement about the demise of the 1990s Dallas Cowboys dynasty to date. Aikman, like many Cowboys […]

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 […]

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. The ownership exchange has not been the result of an asset exchange. It has been more of a hostile takeover. Let me explain. Andy […]

Nick Saban Will Be the Dallas Cowboys' Next Head Coach! Right?

Where there is smoke, there is fire. Unless, it is not smoke at all. Maybe it is just fog. And fog means water, which squelches fire. None of that, of course, answers the question of the day: Is Nick Saban destined to become the next head coach of the Dallas Cowboys? A few guys down at […]

Bill Cowher added his voice to the din surrounding the Cowboys’ loss Sunday by firing off biting criticism of Jason Garrett regarding his management of the Cowboys’ final offensive drive during regulation last Sunday versus the Arizona Cardinals.

Dallas Cowboys Lose to Phoenix Cardinals in Desert Debacle

Sunday was a familiar sight for beleaguered fans of America’s erstwhile Team. Phoenix, Arizona is not known as a tough place to win a football game. Unless, of course you are the Phoenix Cardinals or the Dallas Cowboys. 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 […]
