Jerry Jones Keeps Wade Phillips Around: Surprised?

Shhh. Listen. Do you hear that? It is crickets chirping all over the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex and Dallas Cowboys Nation in general. Jerry Jones announced yesterday that he is keeping Wade Phillips on as head coach, and besides the few radical fans that respond violently and vociferously to any piece of Cowboys’ news, his announcement [...]

Cowboys and Chargers Meet in Stupor Bowl

Before the wild card round, I wrote an article predicting Super Bowl XLIV would feature the San Diego Chargers and the Dallas Cowboys. After the wild card round, with San Diego home cooling their heels and the Cowboys summarily dismissing the Philadelphia Eagles 34-14, my prognostication skills were looking quite strong. Then came the divisional [...]

Dallas Cowboys' Wade Phillips Contributes To Playoff Loss in Minnesota

Just when I am reluctantly purchasing my ticket for the Keep-Wade Phillips-Around-Another-Year bandwagon, he reminds me why I hate myself for even thinking such a thing. With the game still young, the offense moving the ball rather effectively, and the scoreboard clear of points, Ol’ Wade coached scared and stupid, sending in Sean Suisham to [...]

Brett Favre Versus Tony Romo: The Old Gunfighter and the Young Gun

Everyone knows that long before he packed his bags and took that boyish grin to Dallas, Tony Romo was a Wisconsin boy, a cheese head. Everyone knows he idolized the Green Bay Packers great, Brett Favre. Everyone knows that, in today’s NFL, there is no other quarterback whose game more closely resembles Favre’s than Tony [...]

For Dallas Cowboys, the "D" is for Domination

I am sure NBC’s stellar broadcast crew hoped for a better game to close out Chris Collinsworth’s inaugural season in the catbird seat. They would have loved a nail-biter, a classic, one for the ages. They didn’t get a nail-biter or a classic. They did get one for the ages. They got the game that [...]

Dave Spadaro: Philly Spitter the Spitting Image of Eagles' Fans in General

“What is crude, crass, classless, Alex.” (Answer to the Jeopardy question: “What are the three best words to describe a typical Philadelphia Eagles fan?”) So, Pulitzer candidate and editor of PhiladelphiaEagles.com Dave Spadaro hocked a loogie on the hallowed midfield Star at Cowboys Stadium before last Sunday afternoon’s game, recorded it on his web cam, [...]

Super Bowl XLIV Will Be Jerry Bowl I

Welcome to the brave world of NFL playoff predictions, where a writer puts his reputation for good sense and objective reasoning on the line by making a way-too-specific prediction about things to come. I feel like a weatherman, but even they have the good sense to hedge their bet. “There is a 50% chance of [...]

Twelve Reasons the '09 Version of the Dallas Cowboys Won the NFC East

Raise your hand if you have ever dog-cussed Jason Garrett or said Wade Phillips should be fired (or worse). God bless you. I see that hand. Yes, and yours too. Oh, and yours, way back in the corner. And yes…my hand is raised, as well. Guilty. All over the vast expanse of Jerry’s magnificent, shiny [...]

Who Will Be The Team of the Teens?

Who will be The Team of the Teens? By that, I do not mean the team of kids between 12 and 19. I mean the team that will outshine all others in the 2010—2019 decade. The team that will record multiple Super Bowl victories. The team everyone else will hate and emulate at the same [...]

An Open Letter From Jerry Jones to Wade Phillips: Even Love Has Its Limits

My Dearest Wade, I have noticed how giddy you have been during our alone time lately. It warms my heart to see you so happy…especially at Christmas. I know you had hoped to find a contract extension in your stocking. Please don’t think I am a Grinch for not putting it there. Besides, everybody loves [...]
