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

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

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 […]
