What is more important to a team than a franchise quarterback? Not much. Where are the Arizona Cardinals of a year ago without the reemergence of Kurt Warner? Who wins the Super Bowl if the Steelers don’t have the steady hand of Big Ben Roethlisberger on the wheel? Subtract the Roger Staubachs, Terry Bradshaws, Joe [...]

Witten Gets It Right

Jason Witten finally broke his off-season silence. He didn’t say much, but in his few words, he said a great deal. After admitting that T.O.’s presence on the field made him (Jason, that is) a better player, the All-Pro tight end added this nugget: “I don’t want to look at it and say we are [...]

Whew! Emmitt is Done at ESPN

OK, all of you red-faced Cowboys’ fans: you can come out from under the bed and take the bag off your head. Emmitt Smith’s tenure at ESPN has mercifully come to an end. While employed by ESPN, Emmitt was a cliche-spitting, infinity-splitting, stupidity-emitting, bumbling buffoon. To highlight and contrast his ineptitude as a broadcaster, the [...]

By most accounts, Jerry Jones and the Cowboys have had a pretty good off-season. Consider… They rid themselves of the one-man wrecking crew, so he could be unleashed on the poor, unsuspecting slobs in Buffalo; They cut their losses with washed-up SS Roy Williams; They addressed the safety issue with Sensabaugh; They lost Canty, but [...]

The Tuna's Ten Commandments Plus One: Is Romo Keeping Them?

While still an ESPN analyst and before heading off with his anointing oil to resurrect yet another storied NFL franchise from a self-dug grave, Bill Parcells shared a list he had given to Tony Romo while he was the coach of the Cowboys. Admittedly, I am no Big Bill fan. He doesn’t need any additional [...]

Soooey! Jones has a Thing for Joneses and Arkansas (But is this one too risky?)

Former Arkansas Razorback quarterback-turned -NFL receiver Matt Jones has officially been released from the Jacksonville Jaguars. The troubled young man has had more than his share of run-ins with the law, all stemming from drug abuse. He was recently released from jail, having earned a stint there by testing positive for alcohol during a blood [...]

Hey, BlueBloods! It is NCAA Men’s Basketball Tourney time. Because no one understands better than you that the four major sports are NFL preseason, regular season, post-season, and the draft, we figured you would appreciate filling out your brackets with fellow football freaks. Join the Silver and Blue Bracketology Tourney Pick ‘em contest and win…um, [...]

After knee-jerking about Jerry Jones’ signing of the threepeat offender, Gerald Sensabaugh the other day, let me give a little balance by commending the oft-maligned GM for signing Sensabaugh to a sensible contract. Clarence Hill, writer for the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, reports that the former Jacksonville Jaguars safety has signed a one-year, $1.75 million deal. [...]

Frankenstein's Monster? Cowboys Sign Igor

Chris Canty was progressing nicely. He had a nice year and was showing signs of becoming what the Cowboys had believed he would be – a solid 3-4 defensive end. He was not, however, worth six years and $42 mil ($17+ guaranteed). At least, not to the Cowboys, who have other fish to fry (and [...]
