Giants-Rangers: A World Class World Series Debate

Whereas the Texas Rangers are set to go where no Texas Rangers team has gone before; and whereas, legendary Rangers’ minority owner and president Nolan Ryan is a bona fide baseball man, while Dallas Cowboys owner/president/general manager/attention harlot Jerry Jones is a frustrated-but-overmatched head football coach; and whereas the 1-5 Cowboys still delusionally believe they [...]

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. The Monday night debacle between the Dallas Cowboys and their hated rivals from New York, the Giants, was surreal. I kept feeling like I was watching yet another re-run of [...]

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 [...]

Jerry Jones Should Thank Nolan Ryan, Ron Washington & Company

Did you think when Jerry Jones built his shiny silver football palace down the street from the Rangers Ballpark in Arlington that his ball club would become the “other” team in town? Me neither. Here we are in the most wonderful time of the year in Texas, the heart of football season, and the team [...]

Jerry Jones Gives Dallas Cowboys Fans Worst Possible News

What is the worst news you could get right now as a fan of the Dallas Cowboys? Would it be a season-ending injury to Tony Romo or DeMarcus Ware? Or maybe that Miles Austin had been traded? While any of those things would absolutely stink, none of them is the worst scenario I can imagine. [...]

The 2010 Dallas Cowboys: Who Can Figure?

Imagine Albert Einstein failing a remedial math course. Or Michelangelo unable to stay inside the lines on a paint-by-number picture. Or Roy Rogers constantly being thrown by Trigger. Or Isaac Newton staring blankly at that fallen apple. Any of these make as much sense to me as the 2010 version of the Dallas Cowboys sporting [...]

Dallas Cowboys Will Beat The Minnesota Vikings Today, Thanks to Brett Favre

Here is a last-minute football prediction for you: In the game dubbed by many as the Panic Bowl between the 1-3 Dallas Cowboys and the 1-3 Minnesota Vikings, the Cowboys will beat the odds, the crowd and the Vikes. That’s right. You heard it hear last: The Cowboys will win and Brett Favre will be [...]

Dallas Cowboys Owner Jerry Jones Remains Committed to His Losing Formula

While Texans celebrate the triumph of an organization that has been built the right way from the ground up, namely, those incredibly resilient Texas Rangers, Jerry Jones kicks the collective fan base in the groin by stubbornly insisting he still believes in Wade Phillips. The Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports that Jerry and Stephen Jones both [...]

Dallas Cowboys Owner Jerry Jones Should Name Himself Head Coach

The recent bye week for the Dallas Cowboys ought to have been the bye-bye week for coach Wade Phillips. I have tried to imagine the tirade Jimmy Johnson would have gone on after his team, favored by many— if not most— NFL pundits to represent the NFC in the first-ever Dallas/Fort Worth area version of [...]

The Dallas Cowboys' Wade Phillips: A Prime Example of the Peter Principle

If you have read this column before, then you may be vaguely aware that this writer has had coach Wade Phillips squarely in his sights almost since the coach rolled into Valley Ranch to sit on Uncle Jerry Jones’ knee and play puppet/coach for the Dallas Cowboys. (Don’t you hate it when writers refer to [...]
