Bill Cowher added his voice to the din surrounding the Cowboys’ loss Sunday by firing off biting criticism of Jason Garrett regarding his management of the Cowboys’ final offensive drive during regulation last Sunday versus the Arizona Cardinals. When the Cowboys found themselves at the Cards’ 31 yard line with 26 seconds left on the [...]
Sunday was a familiar sight for beleaguered fans of America’s erstwhile Team. Phoenix, Arizona is not known as a tough place to win a football game. Unless, of course you are the Phoenix Cardinals or the Dallas Cowboys. Historically, the Cardinals have struggled to win football games anywhere (with one brief Kurt Warner-induced respite) unless [...]
Jerry Jones ought to have the world by the tail. If you are a sports fan and a fan of financial security, notoriety and power, you would likely trade places with him in a heartbeat.

If you are old enough to remember the Buddy Ryan era in [...]
Jerry Jones had to make a change at head coach. His hand was forced by an embarrassing 1–7 start, punctuated by a 45–7 shellacking at the hands of the Green Bay Packers on Monday Night Football. The day after the Wisconsin massacre, Jones fired Wade Phillips and named Jason Garrett interim head coach. Today, January [...]
