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, [...]

Drew Pearson Finally Takes His Rightful Place in the Cowboys' Ring of Honor

On a day when I would like to give Jerry Jones credit for making a good call by placing Drew Pearson in Dallas Cowboys Ring of Honor, I find myself instead a little miffed that it took him so long. As the sole Keeper of the Keys to this highest honor bestowed by the team on [...]

But for Dallas Cowboys’ wide receiver and rookie of the year candidate Dez Bryant, any appreciation of team history begins with the Old 88s. [...]

A Rebuttal: Top 10 Dallas Cowboys of All Time

The NFL Network recently offered an episode in its Top 10 series in which they named their top ten Dallas Cowboys of all time. While the names on their list are all undeniably great, they used flawed logic in their selections. I intend to set the record straight by giving you the real top ten [...]

Jerry Jones Fumbles Ball on Ring of Honor, Deux

Jerry Jones, the NFL’s version of P.T. Barnum, may not be as articulate as the old ringmaster, but he has proven himself every bit the slick showman/businessman. Until now. In a bewildering move, Jones has eschewed any Ring of Honor inductions for the 2010 season. As previously noted, that just doesn’t make sense…especially when you [...]
