Shhh. Listen. Do you hear that? It is crickets chirping all over the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex and Dallas Cowboys Nation in general.

Dallas Cowboys' Wade Phillips Contributes To Playoff Loss in Minnesota

Just when I am reluctantly purchasing my ticket for the Keep-Wade Phillips-Around-Another-Year bandwagon, he reminds me why I hate myself for even thinking such a thing. With the game still young, the offense moving the ball rather effectively, and the scoreboard clear of points, Ol’ Wade coached scared and stupid, sending in Sean Suisham to [...]

Dallas Cowboys Should Be Patient With Jason Garrett

Many have clamored for Jason Garrett’s termination; I have not. Some have noted a dearth of Jason Garrett criticism in my writing. While I have called Wade Phillips everything, but something good to eat and have been vocal on the notion that he is not the type of head coach this team (or any team [...]

Thanksgiving: The Perfect Time for Jason Garrett Heroics

Dateline Thanksgiving Day, 1994 – The Dallas Cowboys staggered into the holiday match-up with the Green Bay Packers – a team they had owned throughout the ’90s – battered and beaten.

Is Wade Phillips The Head Coach of the Dallas Cowboys? Does It Matter?

“Everything rises and falls on leadership.” I do not know who said that first. I first heard it from a preacher named Lee Roberson, back in the seventies. Then, John Maxwell popularized it in more recent memory. Whoever said it, said it right. All you can really add to it is, “Amen.” The Dallas Cowboys [...]

Christmas Comes Early for Dallas Cowboys' Fans

Jones and Phillips, Inc. knows how to combat the annual Christmas collapse of America’s (former) Team. Collapse early. That’s right! Why give false hope to the silver and blue faithful? Why wait until December to collapse and either miss the playoffs or barely make the post-season and then take an early exit? No waiting. No [...]

The Spin Cycle: Preseason Game 1, Cowboys vs. Raiders

OK, Blue Bloods. Nobody likes to lose…not even in the preseason. But if you are going to lose, that is a better time than any to do it. Games that don’t count don’t count. Losing 31-10, you might think would indicate that there were few positives to be taken from the game. That just isn’t [...]
