Twenty Years Of Jerry Jones and His Dallas Cowboys, A Retrospective

Jerry Jones and the Way We Were Can it already be twenty years? Is it really possible that it was two whole decades ago that Jerry Jones informed the disbelieving Dallas Cowboys nation that he would be involved in (and in charge of) everything regarding the team, right down to the “socks and jocks?” It [...]

Good Job, Jerry (Giving the Devil His Due)

This space has often been used to take Jerry Jones to task for his meddling ways. The Cowboys’ lightening rod owner does and says more than enough to earn it. However, not every move the hands-on owner/general manager of America’s team is bad. In, fact, this past off-season is proving to be one of his [...]

Christmas Comes Early for Dallas Cowboys' Fans

Jones and Phillips, Inc. knows how to combat the annual Christmas collapse of America’s (former) Team. Collapse early. That’s right! Why give false hope to the silver and blue faithful? Why wait until December to collapse and either miss the playoffs or barely make the post-season and then take an early exit? No waiting. No [...]

Why Wade?

Jerry Jones included in his “state-of-the-team” address a defense of his decision to keep his coach. Without provocation, he launched into JoneSpeak about how Wade was the right man for the job and how he would bring things to the table that no one else could. Jones’ feeling that he had to defend why he [...]

As part of the SilverandBlueBlood.com Top Ten Top Ten Lists, I present for your amusement, argumentation, and amendment the top ten Dallas Cowboys non-players of all time.

The Mike Jenkins Blog: Open Mouth, Insert Foot

I have an idea for Jerry Jones. In future contract negotiations, put in an extra incentive for the player NOT to make YouTube videos (hello, Marty B) or write a blog. More often than not, no good comes from it. Mike Jenkins recently announced via his blog that he was the starting cornerback coming into [...]

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 [...]

Jerry Jones recently announced that there would be no new additions to the Ring of Honor in the 2010-11 football season. For a man with such business acumen, that seems like a horribly short-sighted decision. Of all the years to forgo such a celebration! The debut season in the new stadium is tailor-made for the [...]

Stephen Jones Says, "Put Dad in a Straitjacket"

Stephen Jones has suggested that Cowboys’ management may need to do what Cowboys’ fans have often dreamed of doing: put his daddy, Jerry Jones, in a straitjacket. Stephen, of course, was joking about how hard it would be for Jones the Elder to sit still and stay put until the number fifty-one pick in today’s [...]

Miles to Go? Jets May Force Jerry Jones' Hand

Jerry Jones has insisted that the primary reason he gave T.O. the boot was to make room for the Cowboys’ young receivers to flourish. The one name he has mentioned as a plausible replacement for Owens, especially as a deep threat, is Miles Austin. Today, the Dallas Morning News is reporting that the New York [...]
