Troy Aikman agrees with you: NFL preseason football is a bad joke!

Cowboys fans suffered through another miserable night of preseason football, exacerbated by the fact that their team played like Ned in the first grade reader. Not that it matters. Not that anyone on earth cares. The only thing that matters is seeing a small handful of unknowns in a “game” situation and escaping said “game” […]

Dez Bryant caught it, but Fox analyst, former official Mike Pereira still says, "No."

Dez Bryant caught that fourth-down pass against the Green Bay Packers. That’s what the naked eye tells you. That’s what the multitudinous replays show. It was ruled a catch on the field. The Packers challenged the ruling. In order for a ruling on the field to be overturned, there must be conclusive, indisputable evidence that […]

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 […]

Peyton Manning ties NFL record for touchdowns in a game, ruins perception of old school NFL

On the opening night of the 2013-14 NFL season, against the defending Super Bowl champion Baltimore Ravens, Peyton Manning became the sixth member of an elite NFL club by throwing seven touchdowns in a single game.

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? The answer to the first question will probably be directly related to your age. If you are, say 60ish, you will say, “Hell, no! Dick Butkus is peerless, baby. Not […]

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. The third weekend of NFL play was by far the worst of all. It seemed every single game was marked by blown […]
