Rolando McClain: Just doing what his nature dictates

The Dallas Cowboys needed a defensive savior a year ago when Sean Lee went down with a season-ending injury and Demarcus Ware went the way of free agency. Rolando McClain needed a savior, too. The Cowboys needed to be saved from what many feared would be the worst defensive unit in team history, and the […]

Adam Schein of NFL.com lists your Dallas Cowboys as the most fascinating team heading into the off-season. Says Schein: Dallas enjoyed a fantastic — and wholly surprising — regular season in 2014. Now there’s pressure to do it again and go even deeper in the playoffs. After facing questions about job security in prior offseasons, coach […]

Your 2014 Dallas Cowboys: Reason for Hope

I generally operate on the more pessimistic side of the ledger. I, like all devout pessimists, prefer the term “realist,” but not everyone will grant that status. Oddly enough, most optimists are pretty pessimistic about granting a pessimist the “realist” tag. That said, what follows is my stab at optimism where the 2014 Dallas Cowboys is concerned. The […]

Dallas dumps DeMarcus Ware

The Dallas Cowboys are a mediocre team coming off an historically bad season, defensively. So, it makes perfect sense to cut one of the best—and most productive—defensive players in the history of the franchise. Right? Absolutely, it does. DeMarcus Ware, for all the wonderful things he has done in a Cowboys uniform, is coming off […]

Working without a net: After all these years, the Dallas Cowboys still need help at safety

  Stop me if you have heard this before. The Dallas Cowboys need help at the safety position. In that regard, the 2014 offseason is no different from 2013, which was the same as 2012, which very much resembled 2011…ad nauseum. Come to think of it, when was the last time the Cowboys had a safety tandem […]

Jerry Jones, Cowboys coaches preparing for Senior Bowl

I think everyone expected Jerry Jones to fire defensive coordinator Monte Kiffin after the abysmal performance of his 2013 defense. The epic, record-setting failures of the Cowboys’ defense this season has been duly documented. Kiffin is a septuagenarian with a Super Bowl win in his distant past, but abject failure in the recent past, at […]

Frigid Chicago, Mediocre Bears, and "Coach" Jones undo Cowboys, 45-28

It was the second coldest game in Cowboys’ history. It was the sixth loss of the 2013 season. It was the second time this season the Cowboys defense (for lack of a better term) failed to force a punt. It was just ten yards shy of being the fifth time this season the Dallas D […]

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. […]

Cowboys owner Jerry Jones is delighted with Sunday's 'moral victory'

Let’s establish first things first. The Dallas Cowboys lost their third game in five outings on Sunday. They surrendered 51 points to Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos. They wasted Tony Romo’s stellar performance, in which he out-dueled Hall of Fame bound, top five all-time QB Manning, but Jerry Jones was thrilled. He was delighted with what he […]
