It was the best of times. It was the worst of times. And I am still having a hard time believing what happened in this tale of two cities, two teams, and two football fates. With a 12-point lead and just over five minutes remaining in the fourth quarter, the Dallas Cowboys managed to squander [...]

Dallas Cowboys Lose to Phoenix Cardinals in Desert Debacle

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 [...]

Dallas Cowboys Jason Garrett and Rob Ryan: The Odd Couple Just Might Work

Don’t look now, Dallas, but your resident football genius and redheaded step-son, Cowboys’ head coach, Jason Garrett, has just hired “The Dude” from The Big Lebowski—aka, Rob Ryan— to whip your team’s defense into shape. The Princeton scholar has hired a fellow who graduated from Clown College. Or was it Hamburger U?

All In The Family? Dallas Cowboys Set To Interview Rob Ryan For Defensive Coordinator Position

For men—and football-loving women—of a certain age, the Dallas Cowboys hiring Rob Ryan, son of arch enemy Buddy Ryan, is something akin to Laila Ali (that’s Muhammad Ali’s daughter) marrying one of George Foreman’s kids (all of which, I believe, are named George.) If you are old enough to remember the Buddy Ryan era in [...]

New Sheriff in Town: Dallas Cowboys Coach Jason Garrett Gives Ray Sherman the Boot

First, Jerry Jones interviewed Cowboys receivers coach Ray Sherman for the position of head coach. Then, Jason Garrett was named head coach. Now, Ray Sherman is unemployed. In other words, either Jason Garrett or Jerry Jones has fired Ray Sherman.
