Diamonds In The Poo-Poo: Dallas Cowboys Top Ten Performers in 2010

Emmitt Smith once famously said about his team, “We had some diamonds, but we had a lotta cow poo poo around it, and the diamonds was mixed in with the poo poo…it just all look like poo poo.” (The Grammar is Mr. Smith’s alone.) If that was true of the late ’90s Cowboys, it was [...]

Dallas Cowboys Miles Austin, Mike Jenkins and Anthony Spencer are Fool's Gold

This time last year, Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Miles Austin was putting the finishing touches on his breakout year. The man from Monmouth, mysteriously overlooked by talent scouts coming out of high school and again when he became NFL draft eligible, was setting the NFL on its ear, ripping defensive backfields to shreds, and leaving [...]

Will Michael Vick-timize the Dallas Cowboys?

The Philadelphia Eagles have a score to settle. In fact, they have three scores to settle. In 2009, the Dallas Cowboys swept the Eagles, winning twice in the regular season and then humiliating Philadelphia 34–14 in the opening round of the playoffs. It was the Cowboys’ first playoff win since the Clinton administration.

Blown Coverage: Deion Sanders on Dallas Cowboys' Dez Bryant

Deion Sanders may be the greatest cornerback to ever grace a football field. Not only did he epitomize the shutdown corner, the very term was invented to describe him. That said, Deion is also among the biggest self-promoters to ever play a team sport. He dubbed himself “Prime Time,” danced to the beat of his [...]

Dallas Cowboys' Dez Bryant and The Old 88s

I used to drive a fully-loaded Olds 88. (That’s insider talk for Oldsmobile 88. Wink.) I enjoy the musical stylings of the Old 97s (not to mention their nostalgic-sounding, cool-vibing name.) But for Dallas Cowboys’ wide receiver and rookie of the year candidate Dez Bryant, any appreciation of team history begins with the Old 88s. [...]

Dallas Cowboys Igor Olshansky Provides Opportunity for Wade Phillips, Jerry Jones

[picappgallerysingle id="9581046"]One sure sign that a struggling team is beginning to implode: Players start criticizing other players and/or coaches. Defensive players blame offensive players. Offensive players blame the defense. Players blame coaches. Usually, when a player  tosses a coach under the bus, he does so to a coach to whom he answers. Defensive end Igor [...]

Dallas Cowboys: Jon Kitna's Words A Welcome Change

One of the key problems for the Dallas Cowboys under head coach Wade Phillips has been the willingness to pass the buck, hide behind the statistics and simply refuse to accept blame for anything. Phillips set the tone for his team by being anxious to take credit for every success and unwilling to accept responsibility [...]

Randy Moss On The Market: Should The Cowboys Be In the Market?

In the 1998 draft, Jerry Jones failed to pull the trigger on drafting future superstar receiver Randy Moss, opting instead to go with Greg Ellis. We all know how that turned out. Ellis put together a respectable career in Dallas, one that garnered him one Pro Bowl appearance in 11 seasons with the Cowboys. Meanwhile, [...]

Is Jerry Jones Pinching Football Pennies Because of His New Stadium?

If the Houston Astrodome was the eighth wonder of the world in its day, then the new Cowboys’ Stadium has to be the marvel of the modern era. Having toured the stadium twice in the past month, I am impressed more than ever with Jerry Jones as a visionary and marketing genius. It is hard [...]

Jerry Jones to Martellus Bennett: "Tweet This!"

If you have ever watched MartyB TV on YouTube, or if you are a follower of Jupiter’s Crunch on Twitter, then you know what a Devil-may-care, fun guy Martellus Bennett is. From his rap about having “Jerry Jone (sic) money, iPhone money” his rookie year to hosting the controversial “Black Olympics” thing with his cousin, [...]
