Is Jon Gruden the next Dallas Cowboys head coach?

Is Jon Gruden set to be the next Dallas Cowboys head coach should Jason Garrett suffer through another year of mediocrity and disappointment? Well, consider the facts and then you tell me. After the bitter season-ending loss to the Redskins, which mired Jerry’s kids in a second consecutive 8–8 season, Jones promised plenty of discomfort […]

Dallas Cowboys Super Bowls past and passed

While Jerry fiddles and (Jim) Rome burns, the Dallas Cowboys have quietly passed the torch to other teams. Like an Olympic runner carrying the torch (if the runner was falling down drunk and weaving in and out of traffic), Jerry has passed the Super Bowl supremacy torch to some of the Cowboys’ most hated rivals. […]

Why did Jerry Jones fire Rob Ryan?

Why did Jerry Jones fire Rob Ryan? After the season was over, Jones famously said that things were going to be uncomfortable around Valley Ranch. He promised, in so many words, significant change. But why Rob Ryan? Sure, the defense was porous and played poorly. But Ryan had to assemble a team that excluded as […]

George Orwell knows why Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones cannot communicate clearly

Ever wonder why Jerry Jones is so confusing when he talks? There is hardly any way a man intelligent enough to amass the kind of wealth Jerry has amassed, to orchestrate the masterful deals he has pulled off (see Cowboys Stadium), and to excel and succeed financially during a time when others are faced with […]

Tony Romo: "I let the team down"

Same song, just another verse. Tony Romo and his Dallas Cowboys entered the final week of the season with a chance to make the postseason and failed. There are plenty of reasons and enough excuses to go around. All those injuries going into the game. All those injuries during the game. Pulled muscles and broken […]

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, […]

Sean Payton to coach Dallas Cowboys? Who cares!

“Sean Payton to coach Dallas Cowboys.” No one would be surprised if that was the leading headline in the coming NFL off-season. Since the NFL voided Payton’s contract with the New Orleans Saints, speculation about Jerry Jones setting his sights on the former Cowboys assistant has run rampant. And why not? We have seen it […]

Seahawks beat Cowboys down and that beats me down

Some may have seen an upset in the offing in the great Northwest. Before Sunday, somewhere a column or blog heading may have read, “Seahawks Beat Cowboys.” I doubt it. but maybe. But did anyone see that coming? Did anyone see the Cowboys completely dismantled and destroyed by that bunch? Sure, the Seahawks are a different team […]

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 […]
