Will Jerry Jones, Cowboys draft Michael Sam?

If you cannot wait until you have actually reached the pinnacle of your profession to get your 15 minutes in the sun, there is one sure-fire way to get everyone in the media chattering gleefully about you. Just come out of the closet. Heck. Even if you first have to rush into it and then [...]

Dallas Cowboys AT&T Stadium may hurt the team more than it helps

Dallas Cowboys AT&T Stadium rocks. What is the one thing Dallas Cowboys fans can point to with pride and say, “We have the best in the NFL?” AT&T Stadium, of course. Every announcer covering an event there acknowledges that Jerry Jones has built the most fabulous sports venue in the Universe. No wonder it is [...]

Super Bowl XLVIII top ten observations from the cheap seats in Dallas Cowboys land

Another less-than-Super Bowl is in the books. Super Bowl XLVIII will now take its place alongside Super Bowl XXVII (Cowboys 52, Bills 17) and Super Bowl XXIV (49ers 55, Broncos 10) as an all-time old-fashioned butt-kickin’. Now that the festivities are done and the countdown to draft day 2014 begins, it is time to make [...]

Gil Brandt, Super Scout

It is Flashback Friday. Time to rewind the clock to that time when your Dallas Cowboys were the trendsetters, the emulated, the elite. I usually focus on players for this series, but this time, I want to take a different tact and remember one of the men who helped make the Cowboys America’s Team. He [...]

Surrealities (only in Dallas): Jerry Jones re-shuffles Dallas Cowboys coaching staff, adds Scott Linehan

Al Davis is not dead. Or, at least the ghost of Al Davis is still around. He inhabits the body, mind, and plastic-preserved face of Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones. Not since Davis was calling news conferences to castigate former coaches has the NFL seen craziness the likes of what is taking place in Arlington [...]

High Lonesome | The Dallas Cowboys are an important part of NFL history, but are they just...history?

The cowboy is perhaps the most romantic figure in American history. From gunfights at high noon to fighting off hostile Indians to cattle drives along the Chisholm Trail, the mystical cowboy with his rough-and-tumble persona, his indomitable spirit, and his simple, straightforward idea of justice, blazed the trail for westward expansion. But that was then. [...]

Cliff Harris and Charlie Waters: The greatest of all the DC dynamic duos

YOUR DALLAS COWBOYS FLASHBACK FRIDAY Cliff Harris and Charlie Waters, the Dallas Cowboys’ dynamic duo, patrolled the defensive backfield together, the last line of defense for the fabled DoomsDay Defense of coach Tom Landry, for 10 years. They remain perhaps the best safety tandem in NFL history. Sure, there have been more notable individuals at [...]

The Richard Sherman rant: Intelligent, lucid...classless?

Let’s take a break from the woeful Cowboys and turn our attention to the hottest topic in sports: the Richard Sherman rant. Seattle Seahawks’ cornerback Richard Sherman made perhaps the play of the year in the NFL when he ended the 49ers’ furious comeback bid by tipping a Kaepernick pass to a teammate. Interception in [...]

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 [...]
