Jerry Jones, Cowboys coaches preparing for Senior Bowl

I think everyone expected Jerry Jones to fire defensive coordinator Monte Kiffin after the abysmal performance of his 2013 defense. The epic, record-setting failures of the Cowboys’ defense this season has been duly documented. Kiffin is a septuagenarian with a Super Bowl win in his distant past, but abject failure in the recent past, at [...]

Top 10 Reasons to be glad you are a Dallas Cowboys fan

Honestly, Jerry Jones has put me in such a foul mood that I have become entirely too negative on this page. Three straight 8-8 seasons, bungled draft day decisions like the move to take the Wonderlic Kid Mo Claiborne a couple years ago and the decision to nab Invisible Man TE Gavin Escobar in the [...]

Dallas Cowboys Flashback Friday: Golden Richards

The Golden Years Golden Richards. He was the golden boy of the golden era of Dallas Cowboys football, when Cowboys were kings and America paid homage to her Team. He had the coolest name and the blondest hair. He was a blur on the football field, and the perfect complement to the great Drew Pearson. [...]

Jim Mora and the Top 10 Coach Rants of All Time

So, my Texas Longhorns have reportedly moved Jim Mora, Jr. to the head of the line in their search for Mack Brown’s replacement. That’s all cool and everything, especially if he promises to bring his Daddy, one of the all-time great sports ranters with him. I know Junior is his own man with his own [...]

Dallas Cowboys fall short again: The anatomy of a so-so season

The playoffs have not even begun and already it is time to look back on the Dallas Cowboys 2013 campaign, because they are, of course, done. This time, it was not Tony Romo playing his guts out and then throwing a gut-wrenching interception that ends the season. It was his backup. Kyle Orton. You remember [...]

Dallas Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett: The picture of consistency

A favorite preacher/pastor/mentor of mine, who is now in glory, used to love to use a famous Shakespeare quote. “Consistency,” he would say in his supremely authoritative and clarion voice, “Thou are a jewel.” I am inclined to agree. Unless, of course, you are consistently bad. Or, worse (if you happen to be in the [...]

The Jerry Jones Story: A series of unfortunate events | Dallas Cowboys

My youngest daughter was enamored with Lemony Snicket’s Series of Unfortunate Events books. The other day, my grandson was watching the movie with his aunt, who was passing on her love for the stories to the next generation. I could not help, as I watched the cartoonish character portrayed by Jim Carrey, thinking about Jerry [...]

Frigid Chicago, Mediocre Bears, and "Coach" Jones undo Cowboys, 45-28

It was the second coldest game in Cowboys’ history. It was the sixth loss of the 2013 season. It was the second time this season the Cowboys defense (for lack of a better term) failed to force a punt. It was just ten yards shy of being the fifth time this season the Dallas D [...]

Matt Prater breaks hallowed Tom Dempsey record, sadly...

Sunday, Denver Broncos kicker Matt Prater, aided by the thin air of the Mile High City, broke one of the coolest and most hallowed NFL records, when he booted a 64-yard field goal. Count me among the few old heads who hated to see the record fall. The prior record was set by the venerable [...]
