Dallas Cowboys' Dez Bryant tantrum illustrates why he is no Megatron

In terms of talent, Dez Bryant is among the best wide receivers in the NFL. In terms of being a good, solid team player, a man, he is not worthy of mention in the same sentence as Calvin Johnson. The proof of such was on display Sunday. No doubt, Bryant felt pressure to perform Sunday, […]

Have the Cowboys gotten all of the mileage out of Miles Austin?

Remember when Miles Austin burst onto the scene? The undrafted Monmouth alum established himself as the replacement for Terrell Owens when he caught 10 Tony Romo passes for 250 yards and two touchdowns against the Kansas City Chiefs in 2009. Before the 2011 season, Austin signed a $54 million contract extension, which he received based […]

Attention Romo haters: Tony Romo has passed Joe Namath and bettered Marino, Brees, Manning, and Warner

Romo haters we call them, and they are a dime a dozen. They are comprised of both Cowboys fans and Cowboys haters. The deride Tony Romo, calling him a choke artist and (wrongly) insisting that he “always” melts down at the worst possible time. Never mind that in 100 starts (Sunday’s victory over the new-look […]

Cowboys owner Jerry Jones to Jay Ratliff: Thank you and good riddance

The incredibly competitive, dog-eat-dog world of professional football is a “what have you done for me lately” world and Jay Ratliff has done nothing but cost the Dallas Cowboys money and cause strife since November of last year. Ratliff was once the undersized, over-achieving nose tackle who complemented the world-class pass rushing of DeMarcus Ware. […]

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: 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 […]

Preseason Lesson #1: Kyle Orton is no option

If NFL preseason history has taught us anything, it is this: Preseason performances are not a good indicator of what the regular season holds. We have seen teams go 0-4 in preseason and win a Super Bowl. Teams have also had stellar preseasons only to be followed by an abysmal season. Wins and losses may […]

Tony Romo focused on football, not reporters or so-called top 100 players list

You have to love it when an athlete manages to gig the media without ripping his own britches. Tony Romo did just that on Tuesday, when he was able to tell reporters they didn’t matter and get a giggle out of them. Usually, taking on the media is a bad idea, since it is the […]

Dallas Cowboys should cut Josh Brent, because you cannot fix stupid

At 6’2″and 321 pounds, Josh Brent is a big man. He is also a talented football player. Big. Strong. Quick. A formidable force on the interior of a defensive line. So, why did he fall to the Cowboys in the seventh round of the 2010 supplemental draft? A player of his talent could have—and should have—gone […]
