25 years ago today, Jerry Jones shocked the world and forever changed the face of Dallas Cowboys football and the Dallas/Fort Worth sports scene when he emerged from total anonymity to buy the team from owner Bum Bright. In a way, it seems like yesterday. In another, it seems like a lifetime ago. It was […]

First, the city of Irving lost the stadium war to Arlington. The Cowboys abandoned Texas Stadium and it was subsequently demolished. Now, Irving bedroom community Valley Ranch, the home of the Dallas Cowboys headquarters for the past 28 years, will be left behind, as Jerry Jones and family have struck a deal to anchor a […]

Dallas Cowboys have released safety Gerald Sensabaugh, but I ain't scared

Your Dallas Cowboys have released safety Gerald Sensabaugh in a salary cap-clearing move. They subsequently slapped the franchise tag on outside linebacker and soon-to-be defensive end Anthony Spencer. Keeping Spencer, who is coming off a stellar 2012 campaign, may prove to be a good move. But creating a bigger void at the the team’s most […]

Dallas Cowboys On The Yellow Brick Road to Nowhere

We’re not in Kansas anymore, Toto. We’re not in the NFC East race anymore, either. We’re also not in the playoff picture. We’re not even relevant.

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 […]

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. […]
