Michael Strahan (@michaelstrahan) Twitter taunts the Dallas Cowboys and #Cowboys fans

Michael Strahan Twitter taunts the Dallas Cowboys and Cowboys’ fans I think Michael Strahan was an above average player. He is an entertaining personality with a cool gap-tooth grin. Nothing wrong with Strahan, other than he was a member of the hated New York Football Giants and, consequently, an archenemy of the Silver and Bluebloods [...]

Is Brian Urlacher the best middle linebacker in Bears' history?

OK, #NFL History class is about to begin with a two-question quiz: Is Brian Urlacher the best middle linebacker in Bears’ history? Does it matter?

Tony Dorsett and me: A personal football journey

I was 15 years old when the Dallas Cowboys pulled off the greatest trade in team history (the greatest at the time, that is) and snagged the 2nd pick in the first round from the Seattle Seahawks. With that pick, the Cowboys selected Tony Dorsett from the University of Pittsburgh. Dorsett was, at the time, [...]

Dallas hates Skip Bayless, but even Bayless knows the Cowboys rule

Dallas hates Skip Bayless…and for good reason. Bayless has always been a marginally-talented shock jock. Hack, if you will. He parlays controversial opinions into face time on TV. He says more and knows less than anyone I can think of. Well, those are my opinions. I doubt I am alone in them. Bayless first garnered [...]

New NFL Hall of Famer Larry Allen is the strong, silent, destructive type

New NFL Hall of Famer Larry Allen played on one of the best offensive lines ever assembled. They were the line that cleared the way for Emmitt Smith, the NFL’s all-time leading rusher. They were the line that protected Hall of Fame quarterback Troy Aikman, giving him time to find targets like Hall of Fame [...]

Dez does Dallas: The emergence of Dez Bryant and the Dallas Cowboys

Jerry Jones gave Dez Bryant the number 88 when he drafted him. It is the same number worn by Hall of Famer Michael Irvin and should-be Hall of Famer (and recent Ring of Honor inductee) Drew Pearson. To old Cowboy fans like me, it is a pretty special number in Cowboys lore. On April 23, [...]
