Hey, Dallas Cowboys fans, the Ides of March have come and gone. For those of you that have no clue what the Ides of March is in the first place, here you go: The Romans did not number days of a month sequentially from the first through the last day. Instead, they counted back from [...]

Without signing a single free agent, the Dallas Cowboys will improve on defense

Free agency is underway. Teams are posturing and positioning and snapping up talent to improve their on-field product. Everyone, that is, except your Dallas Cowboys. The Cowboys, due to Jerry Jones’s shrewd moves in the past—Yes, that is my tongue in my cheek—have been obliged to move heaven and earth and release players like Gerald [...]

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.

Can Jerry Jones resist the urge to draft Manti Te'o?

Your Cowboys question of the day: Can Jerry Jones resist the urge to draft Manti Te’o? News out of the NFL combine, according the Dallas Morning News, is that Jones plans to sit down with Te’o.

Dallas Cowboys logo designer dead at 89

The name Jack Eskridge may not mean much to you, but if you are a Dallas Cowboys fan, his work means a great deal. Eskridge was the Dallas Cowboys logo designer. He was the man behind the star. The Dallas Cowboys star, one of the simplest, cleanest logos in sports—or in the world, for that [...]

Rob Ryan keeps up family tradition of oversell, under-deliver

Rob Ryan was fired by the Dallas Cowboys after a second consecutive 8-8 season, and after another year of his defense being incapable of holding onto a lead when handed to them. Of course, he considers himself a scapegoat and is (genuinely, I believe) shocked that Jerry Jones gave him the boot, according to Dan [...]

Ray Lewis, deer antler spray and the hypocrisy of the media, fans and management

A phrase you never thought you would hear or see in print? “Ray Lewis deer antler guy.” That is the precise phrase used in a USA Today article about the controversy that exploded over whether Ray Lewis used velvet deer antler spray to enhance the healing process so he could play for the Ravens during [...]
