Even at 1-4, The Dallas Cowboys Can Still Win The NFC East

No. This is not a crack pipe in my hand. No. I am not delusional, deranged or mentally deficient, despite any testimony to the contrary by anyone who knows me well. I know that, since the NFL went to the current playoff formula, only five in 1,345,277 one-and-four teams have made the playoffs. (OK, so […]

Cowboys and Chargers Meet in Stupor Bowl

Before the wild card round, I wrote an article predicting Super Bowl XLIV would feature the San Diego Chargers and the Dallas Cowboys. After the wild card round, with San Diego home cooling their heels and the Cowboys summarily dismissing the Philadelphia Eagles 34-14, my prognostication skills were looking quite strong. Then came the divisional […]

Dallas Cowboys' Wade Phillips Contributes To Playoff Loss in Minnesota

Just when I am reluctantly purchasing my ticket for the Keep-Wade Phillips-Around-Another-Year bandwagon, he reminds me why I hate myself for even thinking such a thing. With the game still young, the offense moving the ball rather effectively, and the scoreboard clear of points, Ol’ Wade coached scared and stupid, sending in Sean Suisham to […]

Brett Favre Versus Tony Romo: The Old Gunfighter and the Young Gun

Everyone knows that long before he packed his bags and took that boyish grin to Dallas, Tony Romo was a Wisconsin boy, a cheese head. Everyone knows he idolized the Green Bay Packers great, Brett Favre. Everyone knows that, in today’s NFL, there is no other quarterback whose game more closely resembles Favre’s than Tony […]

For Dallas Cowboys, the "D" is for Domination

I am sure NBC’s stellar broadcast crew hoped for a better game to close out Chris Collinsworth’s inaugural season in the catbird seat. They would have loved a nail-biter, a classic, one for the ages. They didn’t get a nail-biter or a classic. They did get one for the ages. They got the game that […]

Twelve Reasons the '09 Version of the Dallas Cowboys Won the NFC East

Raise your hand if you have ever dog-cussed Jason Garrett or said Wade Phillips should be fired (or worse). God bless you. I see that hand. Yes, and yours too. Oh, and yours, way back in the corner. And yes…my hand is raised, as well. Guilty. All over the vast expanse of Jerry’s magnificent, shiny […]

Cowboys' Loss In New York (Sort Of) a Giant Disappointment

The Dallas Cowboys beat the Giants Sunday. If you do not believe me, just ask head coach Wade Phillips. He will delight in telling you all of the good things his team did that day. He will outline all of the ways his team won. It was, after all, a record-setting day for Tony Romo […]

For the Dallas Cowboys and the Beasts of the NFC East, The Road Ahead is All Uphill

The NFC East is boiling down to the Big Three and the Big Mess. Dallas, Philadelphia, and New York will duke it out for the Division Title while the Redskins just duke it out. (Of course, this assumes the Giants will right their listing ship soon.) All Dallas Cowboys fans get nervous as the holidays […]
