Observations from Section 317 ~ The weekly National Anthem report: ALL of our Boys were at attention, toes on the line, during our Anthem. Our GIRLS (best cheerleaders in the NFL) are also, not surprisingly, at attention for the Anthem each week. Additionally, anytime I see one of them on the big screen during the […]

Dallas Cowboys ruminations and prognostications after week one loss to NY Giants

Football season took forever to arrive and then, just like a fart in the wind, game one is gone. Forever. The Dallas Cowboys did what they had never done before, too: they lost to the New York Giants in week one of the season. Seven times these rivals had faced off in the opening week […]

Dallas Cowboys draft Ezekiel Elliott number four, but why? Or, why not?

In the immediate aftermath of the Dallas Cowboys spending the fourth overall pick in the 2016 NFL draft on running back Ezekiel Elliott, the Cowboys were criticized by some notable sports media pundits.

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 […]

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 […]
