Dallas Cowboys Will Beat The Minnesota Vikings Today, Thanks to Brett Favre

Here is a last-minute football prediction for you: In the game dubbed by many as the Panic Bowl between the 1-3 Dallas Cowboys and the 1-3 Minnesota Vikings, the Cowboys will beat the odds, the crowd and the Vikes. That’s right. You heard it hear last: The Cowboys will win and Brett Favre will be [...]

Dallas Cowboys Owner Jerry Jones Remains Committed to His Losing Formula

While Texans celebrate the triumph of an organization that has been built the right way from the ground up, namely, those incredibly resilient Texas Rangers, Jerry Jones kicks the collective fan base in the groin by stubbornly insisting he still believes in Wade Phillips. The Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports that Jerry and Stephen Jones both [...]

Dallas Cowboys Owner Jerry Jones Should Name Himself Head Coach

The recent bye week for the Dallas Cowboys ought to have been the bye-bye week for coach Wade Phillips. I have tried to imagine the tirade Jimmy Johnson would have gone on after his team, favored by many— if not most— NFL pundits to represent the NFC in the first-ever Dallas/Fort Worth area version of [...]

The Dallas Cowboys' Wade Phillips: A Prime Example of the Peter Principle

If you have read this column before, then you may be vaguely aware that this writer has had coach Wade Phillips squarely in his sights almost since the coach rolled into Valley Ranch to sit on Uncle Jerry Jones’ knee and play puppet/coach for the Dallas Cowboys. (Don’t you hate it when writers refer to [...]

Smack-Talking, Dan Hampton, The Dallas Cowboys, Brokeback Mountain, and Katrina

According the ranting Chicago Bears defensive lineman-turned-talking head Dan Hampton, the Dallas Cowboys “think they are Clint Eastwood, but are more the Brokeback variety, if you know what I mean.” I will leave the homophobic lamentations to those who worry over such things and instead focus on the implication and the meat head who made [...]

Dallas Cowboys Trade of Patrick Crayton to Chargers A Good Deal

The Patrick Crayton trade was a good deal for all involved. It was a good deal for Crayton because as a thirty year old receiver with middle-of-the-road skills, the market for his services was not great. Every team in the NFL has a Crayton or two on it. Most of them are a little younger [...]

Like Father, Like Son: Top Dad/Son Duos Involving Dallas Cowboys

The most notable— and easily the most remarkable— father/son tandem in NFL history is the Manning Trio. Father Archie, though he labored on a losing team his entire career, was widely recognized as a highly-talented quarterback. His two boys, Peyton and Eli, have each led their respective teams to a Super Bowl championship…and Peyton is [...]

Is Jerry Jones Pinching Football Pennies Because of His New Stadium?

If the Houston Astrodome was the eighth wonder of the world in its day, then the new Cowboys’ Stadium has to be the marvel of the modern era. Having toured the stadium twice in the past month, I am impressed more than ever with Jerry Jones as a visionary and marketing genius. It is hard [...]

2010 NFL Schedule: How Will The NFC East Fare?

So, the NFL schedule is out and the mad rush to predict the future is on. I personally think these April predictions border on the absurd. So much will change between now and the first week of the regular season. Not to mention that there is no real continuity any more. Yesterday’s thoroughbred is today’s [...]

Mission Field Report: Eagles Fans And Cowboys Fans Are More Alike Than You Think

What do Philadelphia Eagles fans and Dallas Cowboys fans have in common? More than you might think. I just came home to Dallas from a two-month stint in Philadelphia. No, I wasn’t sent there as punishment for my sins. Nor was I there as a missionary to convert the poor, lost Eagles fans. I was [...]
