Dez does Dallas: The emergence of Dez Bryant and the Dallas Cowboys

Jerry Jones gave Dez Bryant the number 88 when he drafted him. It is the same number worn by Hall of Famer Michael Irvin and should-be Hall of Famer (and recent Ring of Honor inductee) Drew Pearson. To old Cowboy fans like me, it is a pretty special number in Cowboys lore. On April 23, […]

Silver and BlueBlood says goodbye to a banner year

2012 is almost in the books. For the Dallas Cowboys, the tale of this football year has yet to be told. But for Silver and BlueBlood (SBB), the books are all but closed. And, thanks to our faithful readers, Facebook friends and Twitter followers, it was far and away the best year yet, as I […]

Cowboys and heroes—difference-makers in 2012

The Cowboys lost a heart-breaker to the Saints. After an unlikely, game-tying 14-point flurry with just over three minutes remaining in regulation, they suffered a crushing loss in overtime. Still this team, with its decimated defense,—Can anyone remember a year like this for so many key players on IR on one side of the ball?— […]

Cowboys beat the Steelers, continue unlikely late-season roll

The Cowboys beat the Steelers. How ’bout them apples? The Rivalry Going into Sunday’s game, the Cowboys and Steelers had faced off 30 times in their long and storied inter-conference rivalry—three times on the grandest stage of all. They had each won 15. Twelve times, their contests were settled by less than a touchdown. Twice […]

Holmgren to Cowboys rumor—Yea, Nay or Yay!?

The Cowboys got a crucial win over the Eagles yesterday by riding defensive and special teams touchdowns to victory…and by knocking Michael Vick out of commission and then harassing rookie QB Nick Foles just enough. Oh, and by Tony Romo not throwing a single INT. So, let’s celebrate the big win by throwing fuel on […]

Sean Payton to coach Dallas Cowboys? Who cares!

“Sean Payton to coach Dallas Cowboys.” No one would be surprised if that was the leading headline in the coming NFL off-season. Since the NFL voided Payton’s contract with the New Orleans Saints, speculation about Jerry Jones setting his sights on the former Cowboys assistant has run rampant. And why not? We have seen it […]

Cowboys lose on MNF—or was it SNL?

The Cowboys lose for the second time in four games—and, just as we saw in Seattle, it was an embarrassing meltdown of epic proportions. Tonight’s game left me wondering if I was watching Monday Night Football or Saturday Night Live, because the Cowboys are proving they are not-yet-ready-for-primetime-players. Where to begin? Oh wait, I know. […]

Bobblehead Tony Romo returns to Seattle, the scene of the crying shame

Tony Romo bobbled the snap on a potential chip-shot field goal that would have given his Cowboys the lead over the Seattle Seahawks. It was one unfortunate play in an otherwise solid performance—including his guiding the team down the field to set up the potential game-winning 19 yard field goal. Tony Romo was the Cinderella […]

Tony Romo shines as Cowboys defeat Eli Manning's Giants

The Tony Romo haters have to hate the way the 2012 NFL season kicked off. For the past nine years, the previous season’s Super Bowl winner has kicked off the season with a home game. For the first time in these nine years, the defending Super Bowl champs lost the opener at home as, in […]
