Dallas Cowboys' Dez Bryant tantrum illustrates why he is no Megatron

In terms of talent, Dez Bryant is among the best wide receivers in the NFL. In terms of being a good, solid team player, a man, he is not worthy of mention in the same sentence as Calvin Johnson. The proof of such was on display Sunday. No doubt, Bryant felt pressure to perform Sunday, [...]

#Cowboys have passed on the run | ESPN Dallas

Is Play Calling The Reason Cowboys Lost? by Jean-Jacques Taylor, ESPN Dallas IRVING, Texas — The big lie — the one about Dallas Cowboys coach Jason Garrett wanting a more balanced offense — began in the offseason and continued in training camp. Two games into the season, we’re still hearing about Garrett’s never-ending quest to [...]

Herm Edwards: Dez Bryant could be THE MAN, but must learn to be a man first

Dez Bryant is coming off his best year as an NFL receiver. He amassed 1382 yards and scored 12 touchdowns in the 2012 campaign. Dez has improved his production each year he has been in the league. In 2010, his numbers were 561 yards and six TDs. In 2011, he had 928 and nine. Good [...]

Dez does Dallas: The emergence of Dez Bryant and the Dallas Cowboys

Jerry Jones gave Dez Bryant the number 88 when he drafted him. It is the same number worn by Hall of Famer Michael Irvin and should-be Hall of Famer (and recent Ring of Honor inductee) Drew Pearson. To old Cowboy fans like me, it is a pretty special number in Cowboys lore. On April 23, [...]

Should Dez Bryant call Jerry Jones "Daddy?"

Forget Tony Romo and the sometimes ill-timed interception that seems to offset super-athletic flashes of utter brilliance. When it comes to off-the-charts, untapped athletic—and football—prowess, Dez Bryant is the most frustrating Dallas Cowboy of them all. Writing his column, Shutdown Corner, for Yahoo! Sports, Doug Farrar puts it quite well: The Dallas Cowboys have been dealing with receiver Dez Bryant‘s [...]

Cowboys preseason 2012: week two observations

Cowboys lose to the Chargers, 28–20. Few things frustrate me more than NFL preseason football, mainly because it is almost football, but not quite. The other reason is that one is tempted to overrate the significance of individual and team performances. Some teams and lots of players are preseason superstars. And at the end of [...]

Diamonds In The Poo-Poo: Dallas Cowboys Top Ten Performers in 2010

Emmitt Smith once famously said about his team, “We had some diamonds, but we had a lotta cow poo poo around it, and the diamonds was mixed in with the poo poo…it just all look like poo poo.” (The Grammar is Mr. Smith’s alone.) If that was true of the late ’90s Cowboys, it was [...]

Blown Coverage: Deion Sanders on Dallas Cowboys' Dez Bryant

Deion Sanders may be the greatest cornerback to ever grace a football field. Not only did he epitomize the shutdown corner, the very term was invented to describe him. That said, Deion is also among the biggest self-promoters to ever play a team sport. He dubbed himself “Prime Time,” danced to the beat of his [...]

Dallas Cowboys' Dez Bryant and The Old 88s

I used to drive a fully-loaded Olds 88. (That’s insider talk for Oldsmobile 88. Wink.) I enjoy the musical stylings of the Old 97s (not to mention their nostalgic-sounding, cool-vibing name.) But for Dallas Cowboys’ wide receiver and rookie of the year candidate Dez Bryant, any appreciation of team history begins with the Old 88s. [...]
