George Orwell knows why Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones cannot communicate clearly

Ever wonder why Jerry Jones is so confusing when he talks? There is hardly any way a man intelligent enough to amass the kind of wealth Jerry has amassed, to orchestrate the masterful deals he has pulled off (see Cowboys Stadium), and to excel and succeed financially during a time when others are faced with [...]

Tony Romo: "I let the team down"

Same song, just another verse. Tony Romo and his Dallas Cowboys entered the final week of the season with a chance to make the postseason and failed. There are plenty of reasons and enough excuses to go around. All those injuries going into the game. All those injuries during the game. Pulled muscles and broken [...]

The revival of the Dallas Cowboys and Washington Redskins rivalry

It has been a long time since the Dallas Cowboys and Washington Redskins rivalry really mattered. Over the past 15 years or so, the NFC East has been dominated by the New York Giants and Philadelphia Eagles. But things change. Andy Reid, in my estimation the best coach in Eagles’ history, is on his way [...]

Dez does Dallas: The emergence of Dez Bryant and the Dallas Cowboys

Jerry Jones gave Dez Bryant the number 88 when he drafted him. It is the same number worn by Hall of Famer Michael Irvin and should-be Hall of Famer (and recent Ring of Honor inductee) Drew Pearson. To old Cowboy fans like me, it is a pretty special number in Cowboys lore. On April 23, [...]

Silver and BlueBlood says goodbye to a banner year

2012 is almost in the books. For the Dallas Cowboys, the tale of this football year has yet to be told. But for Silver and BlueBlood (SBB), the books are all but closed. And, thanks to our faithful readers, Facebook friends and Twitter followers, it was far and away the best year yet, as I [...]

Cowboys and heroes—difference-makers in 2012

The Cowboys lost a heart-breaker to the Saints. After an unlikely, game-tying 14-point flurry with just over three minutes remaining in regulation, they suffered a crushing loss in overtime. Still this team, with its decimated defense,—Can anyone remember a year like this for so many key players on IR on one side of the ball?— [...]

Cowboys beat the Steelers, continue unlikely late-season roll

The Cowboys beat the Steelers. How ’bout them apples? The Rivalry Going into Sunday’s game, the Cowboys and Steelers had faced off 30 times in their long and storied inter-conference rivalry—three times on the grandest stage of all. They had each won 15. Twelve times, their contests were settled by less than a touchdown. Twice [...]

Holmgren to Cowboys rumor—Yea, Nay or Yay!?

The Cowboys got a crucial win over the Eagles yesterday by riding defensive and special teams touchdowns to victory…and by knocking Michael Vick out of commission and then harassing rookie QB Nick Foles just enough. Oh, and by Tony Romo not throwing a single INT. So, let’s celebrate the big win by throwing fuel on [...]

Sean Payton to coach Dallas Cowboys? Who cares!

“Sean Payton to coach Dallas Cowboys.” No one would be surprised if that was the leading headline in the coming NFL off-season. Since the NFL voided Payton’s contract with the New Orleans Saints, speculation about Jerry Jones setting his sights on the former Cowboys assistant has run rampant. And why not? We have seen it [...]
