Jerry Jones vs Tom Landry: A retrospective

When Jerry Jones stormed into Dallas like an Arkansas Razorback on crack, he shook the city to its core. The firing of Tom Landry was a monumental moment in DFW and Cowboys’ history. Jones may as well have dynamited George Washington’s face off of Mount Rushmore, burned the Alamo to the ground, or cut the [...]

25 years ago today, Jerry Jones shocked the world and forever changed the face of Dallas Cowboys football and the Dallas/Fort Worth sports scene when he emerged from total anonymity to buy the team from owner Bum Bright.

Working without a net: After all these years, the Dallas Cowboys still need help at safety

  Stop me if you have heard this before. The Dallas Cowboys need help at the safety position. In that regard, the 2014 offseason is no different from 2013, which was the same as 2012, which very much resembled 2011…ad nauseum. Come to think of it, when was the last time the Cowboys had a safety tandem [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]
