Blown Coverage: Deion Sanders on Dallas Cowboys' Dez Bryant

Deion Sanders may be the greatest cornerback to ever grace a football field. Not only did he epitomize the shutdown corner, the very term was invented to describe him.

Cowboys - Saints: How a Thanksgiving Day Massacre Became a Miracle

When the New Orleans Saints bolted to 17 points in just their first 15 offensive plays, the rude guests looked as if they would gobble up their hosts, the Dallas Cowboys, without so much as a “thank you,” belch contentedly, and maybe even take a nap somewhere around the fourth quarter. But these Cowboys are […]

Dallas Cowboys' Dez Bryant and The Old 88s

I used to drive a fully-loaded Olds 88. (That’s insider talk for Oldsmobile 88. Wink.) I enjoy the musical stylings of the Old 97s (not to mention their nostalgic-sounding, cool-vibing name.) But for Dallas Cowboys’ wide receiver and rookie of the year candidate Dez Bryant, any appreciation of team history begins with the Old 88s. […]

Dallas Cowboys Owner Jerry Jones Should Remove Interim Coach Jason Garrett

You heard it here first, folks. Jerry Jones needs to remove his interim head coach Jason Garrett and he needs to do it now. “But he had a great first week!” I know. “But he has already changed the culture around the Dallas Cowboys for the better!” Yep. “But he won his first game as […]

[picappgallerysingle id=”10058612″]I don’t know how tight the NFL head coach fraternity really is, since the National Football League is a dog-eat-dog world and head coaches wear milk bone britches. I do know, however, that it is a small fraternity. It only ever has, at any given time, 32 members. It is also an elite fraternity, […]

[picappgallerysingle id=”10098297″]Jerry Jones was finally backed into a corner. He was reluctant to do it, but in the wake of the worst three-game skid in Cowboys’ history, he cut the head off the listless, poisonous snake and fired head coach Wade Phillips. I am not calling Phillips a snake. I am saying that the culture […]
