Good Job, Jerry (Giving the Devil His Due)

This space has often been used to take Jerry Jones to task for his meddling ways. The Cowboys’ lightening rod owner does and says more than enough to earn it. However, not every move the hands-on owner/general manager of America’s team is bad. In, fact, this past off-season is proving to be one of his […]

Five Truths Upon Which Dallas Cowboys Fans Can Hang Their Stetsons

Some things are personal opinions. These are just plain facts. FACT ONE: Tony Romo does NOT suck. It is a favorite pastime of Cowboys’ haters everywhere to play fast and loose with Romo’s name. The usual choice is “Tony Homo,” and the old, tired, standard assertion is simply, “Tony Homo sucks.” That is just not […]

The Spin Cycle: Preseason Game 1, Cowboys vs. Raiders

OK, Blue Bloods. Nobody likes to lose…not even in the preseason. But if you are going to lose, that is a better time than any to do it. Games that don’t count don’t count. Losing 31-10, you might think would indicate that there were few positives to be taken from the game. That just isn’t […]

Double Trouble for Opposing Defenses

Word out of Cowboys camp is that 2009 will see the ‘Boys’ offense lining up the 12 personnel package a good deal more than in years past – and with good reason. Confusingly enough, reporter Tom Orsborne (yes there is that weird “r” between the “O” and “s”), of the San Antonio Express-News registers the […]

Greg Ellis Proves Me Right

During the 2008 off-season, I began to call for Greg Ellis to be cut. I contended that, rather than being the leader he was purported to be, he had become a locker room cancer. In a recent radio interview – while on his way out of town to play for the NFL joke known as […]

The Mike Jenkins Blog: Open Mouth, Insert Foot

I have an idea for Jerry Jones. In future contract negotiations, put in an extra incentive for the player NOT to make YouTube videos (hello, Marty B) or write a blog. More often than not, no good comes from it. Mike Jenkins recently announced via his blog that he was the starting cornerback coming into […]

The Dallas Cowboys brought in Ohio State wideout Brian Robiskie for a workout. According to Matt Mosely of ESPN.com, the Cowboys have been enamored with Robiskie for a long time. Robiskie, from Cleveland, Ohio, is listed by the Buckeyes as 6’3″, 199 pounds. In his senior season, he recorded 42 receptions for 535 yards and […]

The Dallas Morning News is reporting that the Cowboys are bringing in Sam Houston State quarterback Rhett Bomar for a workout. This could be an interesting kid to have a look at. I taught in the Grand Prairie (TX) School District when Bomar was in high school there. Rhett has mad skills, a big arm, […]

“My biggest thing is winning. All I want to do is win. My goal is 75 catches, 1,000 yards and 10 touchdowns. But If I catch two balls and we win that will be OK. I’m trying to prepare myself for the season. I am trying to get myself better to make this team better.” […]

One thing you do not have to worry about with the Dallas Cowboys’ former quarterback turned color analyst is whether or not he will mince words. When he was a player, Troy Aikman had the generic football-speak answer down so pat that people thought he had no personality. He seemed as dull as dirty dishwater. […]
