Dallas Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett: The picture of consistency

A favorite preacher/pastor/mentor of mine, who is now in glory, used to love to use a famous Shakespeare quote. “Consistency,” he would say in his supremely authoritative and clarion voice, “Thou are a jewel.” I am inclined to agree. Unless, of course, you are consistently bad. Or, worse (if you happen to be in the […]

Dallas Cowboys at a crossroads in Monday night tilt with Chicago Bears

The Cowboys are 7-5. Two whole games over .500. For a team that has not finished above .500 in four seasons, that is kind of a big deal. With four games to go, the Cowboys can either make a move towards winning that elusive NFC East title and making the playoffs, or they can slide […]

Cowboys beat the Giants in a tight, but bloodless game despite promise from Jason Pierre-Paul

Before the Cowboys-Giants game on Sunday, Jason Pierre-Paul—another sports dude with a hyphenated last name, which is just weird, since that is a designation historically used by married women who wanted to hang onto their old identity and incorporate it into the new—promised a Cowboys whooping and a blood-letting, according to Dan Graziano of ESPN.com: […]

Can DeMarco and DeMarcus carry the Cowboys to victory in San Diego?

Last week, DeMarco Murray had a breakout game against the St. Louis Rams. He went off for 175 yards on 26 carries. His ability to gouge the defense bought Tony Romo time in the pocket. Consequently, Romo finished the game 17 of 24, threw for three touchdowns and had no interceptions. It was one of […]

Dallas Cowboys & NFC East 2013, where the questions outweigh the answers

I have a question. Or two. In fact, there are questions everywhere when you look at the NFC East 2013 edition. There has been a temporary power shift to the NFC West, with the resurrection of the 49ers franchise under Jim Harbaugh, the emergence of the Seattle Seahawks under the USC outlaw refugee Pete Carroll, […]

Ahmad Bradshaw and Super Bowl champion New York Giants cannot escape the long shadow of America's Team

Ahmad Bradshaw had just made a major contribution to his New York Giants’ upset victory over the mighty New England Patriots. He and his teammates had just been crowned world champions for the second time in four years. So, what did the folks at the NFL Network want him to talk about? The Dallas Cowboys! […]

For the Dallas Cowboys, Super Bowl XLVI is another mile marker along the Lost Highway

It has been 16 years since the Dallas Cowboys beat the Pittsburgh Steelers in Super Bowl XXX. In those sixteen years, the Cowboys have made the playoffs just seven times. In those seven playoff appearances, they have managed to win but two games. On January 1, 2012, the Cowboys needed to get one win at […]

Dallas Cowboys Trying to Join Texas Rangers, Dallas Mavericks and the DFW Championship Party

It is a great time to be alive and living in Dallas/Fort Worth. Dirk Nowitzki— the NBA finals MVP, world champion and Dallas Mavericks great— threw out the first pitch at game three of the World Series, where the Texas Rangers find themselves for the second straight year. The very next day, last year’s American […]

Dallas Cowboys On The Yellow Brick Road to Nowhere

We’re not in Kansas anymore, Toto. We’re not in the NFC East race anymore, either. We’re also not in the playoff picture. We’re not even relevant. The Monday night debacle between the Dallas Cowboys and their hated rivals from New York, the Giants, was surreal. I kept feeling like I was watching yet another re-run of […]

Even at 1-4, The Dallas Cowboys Can Still Win The NFC East

No. This is not a crack pipe in my hand. No. I am not delusional, deranged or mentally deficient, despite any testimony to the contrary by anyone who knows me well. I know that, since the NFL went to the current playoff formula, only five in 1,345,277 one-and-four teams have made the playoffs. (OK, so […]
