Aikman to Romo: "Get a Clue, Kid."

Tony Romo is frustrating. He shows flashes of absolute brilliance. He makes plays that couldn’t be made by three or four other QBs in the entire league. But those brilliant moments are too often mired in bonehead/brain-dead plays that sometimes only cost his team points and other times cost his team points and provide his […]

Hey, BlueBloods! It is NCAA Men’s Basketball Tourney time. Because no one understands better than you that the four major sports are NFL preseason, regular season, post-season, and the draft, we figured you would appreciate filling out your brackets with fellow football freaks. Join the Silver and Blue Bracketology Tourney Pick ’em contest and win…um, […]

After knee-jerking about Jerry Jones’ signing of the threepeat offender, Gerald Sensabaugh the other day, let me give a little balance by commending the oft-maligned GM for signing Sensabaugh to a sensible contract. Clarence Hill, writer for the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, reports that the former Jacksonville Jaguars safety has signed a one-year, $1.75 million deal. […]

The Great QB Debate: Who is the Greatest Cowboys Quarterback Ever?

There is no doubt about it: Lifelong Dallas Cowboys fans are pretty spoiled when it comes to the man occupying the most important position on the field. Few franchises can boast a richer tradition of Quarterbacking excellence. From Dandy Don, the greatest athlete ever to hail from Mount Vernon, Texas, to Troy Aikman, the pride […]

One Nice Guy - One Mean Sonuvagun!

They (whoever “they” are) say that nice guys finish last. If that is a rule, then Darren Woodson is the exception. The Arizona Republic announced today that Woodson, one of the very best to ever play in the defensive backfield for your Dallas Cowboys, is set to be inducted into the Arizona Sports Hall of […]

Making the Grade : An Indepth Look at the History of the Cowboys' First Round Draft Picks

Since their first draft in 1961, the Dallas Cowboys have drafted 46 players in the first round. Five of these players have their busts in the Hall of Fame in Canton, Ohio. Way more than five of them were just busts. That is, of course, to be expected. The NFL Draft is an inexact science. […]

When has “reality” ever felt more surreal? It’s all set. Michael Irvin has his reality show, dubbed Fourth and Long. He has the dirty dozen contestants all penciled in. He has Spike TV set to run the series. And, most importantly – and most distressing to any level-headed Cowboys’ fan, he has Jerry Jones’ commitment […]

The Cowboys released Roy Williams (the safety) because he could no longer cover his own shadow, and if he could, he couldn’t tackle it. Add to Williams’ disappearance about four years ago and his departure about that many days ago the fact that Ken Hamlin turned in a less-than-stellar 2008 (remember his matadorish attempts at […]

Frankenstein's Monster? Cowboys Sign Igor

Chris Canty was progressing nicely. He had a nice year and was showing signs of becoming what the Cowboys had believed he would be – a solid 3-4 defensive end. He was not, however, worth six years and $42 mil ($17+ guaranteed). At least, not to the Cowboys, who have other fish to fry (and […]

Why T.O. Had to G.O!

Fans are so fickle. For months, all you heard on call-in shows was how Terrell Owens was a cancer that had to be cut out of the Dallas Cowboys’ organization. All indicators seemed to point to Jerry Jones ignoring all of the signs, however, and keeping the cancer in the body. Cutting it out, after […]
