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.

Top 10 Reasons to be glad you are a Dallas Cowboys fan

Honestly, Jerry Jones has put me in such a foul mood that I have become entirely too negative on this page. Three straight 8-8 seasons, bungled draft day decisions like the move to take the Wonderlic Kid Mo Claiborne a couple years ago and the decision to nab Invisible Man TE Gavin Escobar in the […]

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?

Blast from the past has passed on: Chuck Muncie dies at 60

Chuck Muncie dies and brings to life a flood of precious football memories for me and my generation of NFL fans. That is the thing about life. The longer you live, the more death is a part of it.

Seahawks celebrate replacement refs and the touchdown that wasn't

What the NFL has done this season with the replacement refs is a disservice to everyone: the teams, the players, the coaches, the fans and, perhaps most of all, the replacement referees themselves.

Sporting News: Cowboys coach Jason Garrett among the worst in the NFL

You can always tell when it is a slow news day in the NFL. Someone at Bleacher Report or ESPN or, in this case, The Sporting News comes out with a list. And why not? Lists are great fun. They cause a stir, create debate and generally keep the football stew stirred until it is […]

If you want to get a Steelers fan's dander up or garner the righteous indignation of a Cheese Head, just mention the Dallas Cowboys and the moniker given to them in the 1970s: America's Team. The wailing, cussing and gnashing of teeth that is apt to ensue will make you wonder if the mouth-foaming might […]
