Jason Garrett and the ones that got away

Jason Garrett is uncomfortable, just like his boss Jerry Jones promised he would be. All around him heads have been rolling and changes coming. Skip Peete, running backs coach, gone. Defensive coordinator Rob Ryan, gone. His own brother John, tight ends coach, all but gone. Rumor has it his play calling duties will soon be…you […]

Dallas Cowboys target Monte Kiffin for defensive coordinator and that is a good thing

Monte Kiffin is so old, he remembers when the Grand Canyon was just a ditch. Monte Kiffin is so old, when he was in school, they were writing history rather than reading it. Monte Kiffin is so old, he has an autographed copy of the King James Bible. Monte Kiffin is so old… He doesn’t […]

Why did Jerry Jones fire Rob Ryan?

Why did Jerry Jones fire Rob Ryan? After the season was over, Jones famously said that things were going to be uncomfortable around Valley Ranch. He promised, in so many words, significant change. But why Rob Ryan? Sure, the defense was porous and played poorly. But Ryan had to assemble a team that excluded as […]

Dallas Cowboys All-Time Depth Chart

If you had all of the Dallas Cowboys from all time, how would you fill out a three-deep depth chart at each position? This is the question I asked myself and set out to answer. The answer is not as easy to come by as you think. There are some hard decisions to make. Roger […]

George Orwell knows why Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones cannot communicate clearly

Ever wonder why Jerry Jones is so confusing when he talks? There is hardly any way a man intelligent enough to amass the kind of wealth Jerry has amassed, to orchestrate the masterful deals he has pulled off (see Cowboys Stadium), and to excel and succeed financially during a time when others are faced with […]

Tony Romo: "I let the team down"

Same song, just another verse. Tony Romo and his Dallas Cowboys entered the final week of the season with a chance to make the postseason and failed. There are plenty of reasons and enough excuses to go around. All those injuries going into the game. All those injuries during the game. Pulled muscles and broken […]

The revival of the Dallas Cowboys and Washington Redskins rivalry

It has been a long time since the Dallas Cowboys and Washington Redskins rivalry really mattered. Over the past 15 years or so, the NFC East has been dominated by the New York Giants and Philadelphia Eagles. But things change. Andy Reid, in my estimation the best coach in Eagles’ history, is on his way […]

Silver and BlueBlood says goodbye to a banner year

2012 is almost in the books. For the Dallas Cowboys, the tale of this football year has yet to be told. But for Silver and BlueBlood (SBB), the books are all but closed. And, thanks to our faithful readers, Facebook friends and Twitter followers, it was far and away the best year yet, as I […]

Cowboys and heroes—difference-makers in 2012

The Cowboys lost a heart-breaker to the Saints. After an unlikely, game-tying 14-point flurry with just over three minutes remaining in regulation, they suffered a crushing loss in overtime. Still this team, with its decimated defense,—Can anyone remember a year like this for so many key players on IR on one side of the ball?— […]

Cowboys beat the Steelers, continue unlikely late-season roll

The Cowboys beat the Steelers. How ’bout them apples? The Rivalry Going into Sunday’s game, the Cowboys and Steelers had faced off 30 times in their long and storied inter-conference rivalry—three times on the grandest stage of all. They had each won 15. Twelve times, their contests were settled by less than a touchdown. Twice […]
