Vince much too Young to be yesterday's news

Remember the January 4, 2006 BCS championship game when the Texas Longhorns shocked the mighty USC Trojans, winning the game 41–38? Remember the great Vince Young solidifying his legend, taking over a BCS championship game like no one before or since? Remember how he completed 30 of 40 passes for 267 yards and carried the [...]

Junior Seau death a testament to the pervasive nature of despair

Star Power: Jerry Jones and his Cowboys rob St. Louis, shock the NFL, nab Morris Claiborne

You can accuse Cowboys owner and general manager Jerry Jones of many things,—and I have—but being timid has never been one of them. Especially on the day of the NFL draft. Last night, the noted oil wildcatter-turned-NFL-general manager was at his root-’n’-tootin’, gunslinging best when he leaped from the pick 14 to pick six (yeah, [...]

Dallas Cowboys will draft SS Mark Barron

For nearly a decade, the Dallas Cowboys defense has been without a safety net.  That should change Thursday night when Jerry Jones and company adds Alabama Crimson Tide strong safety Mark Barron to the roster.

Former Dallas Cowboys Coach Joe Avezzano was more than a "celebrity coach"

Joe Avezzano is dead at age 68. He reportedly died of a heart attack in Milan, Italy, where he was coaching the Milan Seamen of the Italian Football League. Bill Parcells thinks he is always right. When it comes to football, he is right more than he is wrong, I suppose. But he was wrong [...]

Dallas Cowboys HoF DB Mel Renfro talks about his career, his coach and his Cowboys

From the beginning, one of my favorite Cowboys was  the great defensive back Mel Renfro.

Dallas Cowboys News: Jerry Jones looks for redemption in NFL free agency

Despite another disappointing, middle-of-the-road finish at 8–8, despite missing the playoffs for the third time in four years, despite boasting a roster of very few defensive stars and more than a few offensive underachievers, Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones has remained optimistic, saying that he expected his team to be a Super Bowl contender in the [...]

That Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones is inept as a general manager in the National Football League is now so painfully obvious that it has ceased to be worthy of mention. Pointing out his management guffaws is like shooting fish in a barrel or beating your seven year old grandson in an arm wrestling match. There [...]
