The Richard Sherman rant: Intelligent, lucid...classless?

Let’s take a break from the woeful Cowboys and turn our attention to the hottest topic in sports: the Richard Sherman rant. Seattle Seahawks’ cornerback Richard Sherman made perhaps the play of the year in the NFL when he ended the 49ers’ furious comeback bid by tipping a Kaepernick pass to a teammate. Interception in [...]

Jerry Jones: "Calm Down! We were supposed to lose that game"

Jerry Jones wants Cowboys fans to just calm down already. He wants you to remember that his Dallas Cowboys were underdogs going into Sunday’s game against the Kansas City Chiefs. In the Fort Worth Star-Telegram Cowboys Corner, Carlos Menendez writes: It was a disappointing loss in Kansas City, but owner Jerry Jones wants fans to keep [...]

Dallas Cowboys: Is the new Tony Romo offense really an improvement?

Two weeks in the books for your Dallas Cowboys and the record now stands at 1-1. The pessimist in me says that is where a team led by the perpetually .500 Jason Garrett and Tony Romo ought to be. The optimist says it is only week two and the Cowboys are in a two-way tie [...]

Cowboys beat the Steelers, continue unlikely late-season roll

The Cowboys beat the Steelers. How ’bout them apples? The Rivalry Going into Sunday’s game, the Cowboys and Steelers had faced off 30 times in their long and storied inter-conference rivalry—three times on the grandest stage of all. They had each won 15. Twelve times, their contests were settled by less than a touchdown. Twice [...]

Nick Saban Will Be the Dallas Cowboys' Next Head Coach! Right?

Where there is smoke, there is fire. Unless, it is not smoke at all. Maybe it is just fog. And fog means water, which squelches fire. None of that, of course, answers the question of the day: Is Nick Saban destined to become the next head coach of the Dallas Cowboys? A few guys down at [...]

This morning, I am afflicted with Tony Romo Disease: A particularly nasty virus that leaves a writer dazed, confused and all but paralyzed. There are so many ways to go with a Dallas Cowboys morning-after-the-train wreck article, I find myself staring at the keyboard. There is so much to say, I find myself dumbfounded. I could suggest [...]

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 [...]

"Thank You" Cards for the Overjoyed Dallas Cowboys' Fan

On this glorious Monday morning in Dallas, the morning after the biggest Cowboys win in two years, this enterprising entrepreneur is busy designing Thank You cards for the Cowboys fan too busy to write his own. The window for such a venture is very, very small, so I am wasting no time. Here are a [...]

Greg Ellis Proves Me Right

During the 2008 off-season, I began to call for Greg Ellis to be cut. I contended that, rather than being the leader he was purported to be, he had become a locker room cancer. In a recent radio interview – while on his way out of town to play for the NFL joke known as [...]

When has “reality” ever felt more surreal? It’s all set. Michael Irvin has his reality show, dubbed Fourth and Long. He has the dirty dozen contestants all penciled in. He has Spike TV set to run the series. And, most importantly – and most distressing to any level-headed Cowboys’ fan, he has Jerry Jones’ commitment [...]
