Dallas Cowboys at a crossroads in Monday night tilt with Chicago Bears

The Cowboys are 7-5. Two whole games over .500. For a team that has not finished above .500 in four seasons, that is kind of a big deal. With four games to go, the Cowboys can either make a move towards winning that elusive NFC East title and making the playoffs, or they can slide [...]

The Last Cowboy: A Life of Tom Landry by Mark Ribowsky | A Book Review

When I was a kid, there were three things I knew I could count on: God and His Son, Jesus Christ; my mom and dad; and Tom Landry. Tom Landry was the rock-jawed, suit-clad, fedora-topped figure patrolling the sidelines of Texas stadium, giving guidance and stability to America’s Team, my beloved Dallas Cowboys. He had [...]

Cowboys beat the Giants in a tight, but bloodless game despite promise from Jason Pierre-Paul

Before the Cowboys-Giants game on Sunday, Jason Pierre-Paul—another sports dude with a hyphenated last name, which is just weird, since that is a designation historically used by married women who wanted to hang onto their old identity and incorporate it into the new—promised a Cowboys whooping and a blood-letting, according to Dan Graziano of ESPN.com: [...]

Jerry Jones loves the pain of criticism

The most over-asked question in Cowboys’ history (if not NFL history or maybe even human history): “Does Jerry Jones the owner ever think about firing Jerry Jones the GM?” The answer, if you cut through the verbal weaving and swerving Jones the owner does when asked a simple question is quite simply, “Hell, no!” Seventeen [...]

Junior Miller of the Ticket calls for Tony Romo to throw more interceptions

I was flabbergasted this morning while listening to my favorite sports (and guy) talk radio station, KTCK 1310, the Ticket. The Musers (easily the best show on the Ticket) were discussing this year’s Cowboys’ offense, which has taken a decidedly conservative turn. Co-host Junior Miller actually called for more Romo interceptions. Well, he didn’t demand [...]

Dallas Cowboys' Dez Bryant tantrum illustrates why he is no Megatron

In terms of talent, Dez Bryant is among the best wide receivers in the NFL. In terms of being a good, solid team player, a man, he is not worthy of mention in the same sentence as Calvin Johnson. The proof of such was on display Sunday. No doubt, Bryant felt pressure to perform Sunday, [...]

Have the Cowboys gotten all of the mileage out of Miles Austin?

Remember when Miles Austin burst onto the scene? The undrafted Monmouth alum established himself as the replacement for Terrell Owens when he caught 10 Tony Romo passes for 250 yards and two touchdowns against the Kansas City Chiefs in 2009. Before the 2011 season, Austin signed a $54 million contract extension, which he received based [...]

Attention Romo haters: Tony Romo has passed Joe Namath and bettered Marino, Brees, Manning, and Warner

Romo haters we call them, and they are a dime a dozen. They are comprised of both Cowboys fans and Cowboys haters. The deride Tony Romo, calling him a choke artist and (wrongly) insisting that he “always” melts down at the worst possible time. Never mind that in 100 starts (Sunday’s victory over the new-look [...]

Cowboys owner Jerry Jones to Jay Ratliff: Thank you and good riddance

The incredibly competitive, dog-eat-dog world of professional football is a “what have you done for me lately” world and Jay Ratliff has done nothing but cost the Dallas Cowboys money and cause strife since November of last year. Ratliff was once the undersized, over-achieving nose tackle who complemented the world-class pass rushing of DeMarcus Ware. [...]

Redskins vs Costas...or, what will the PC of Costas cost us?

The Dallas Cowboys defeated the longtime, bitter rival Washington Redskins Sunday night in dominant fashion. It was a war of attrition for the Cowboys, who lost all-world DE DeMarcus Ware to an aggravated quad and starting RB DeMarco Murray to a sprained knee. The Cowboys, to the wonder of Chris Collinsworth (and Cowboys fans everywhere), [...]
