How Jerry Jones and His Dallas Cowboys Shut Up Silver and Blue Blood Criticism

You may have noticed a lack of activity around here recently. In addition to my current deployment (now in its sixth month), I confess I have just grown weary of pointing out everything that is wrong with this thing we can scarcely remember as the Dallas Cowboys, America’s Team. My Mom, like a million other [...]

This morning, I am afflicted with Tony Romo Disease: A particularly nasty virus that leaves a writer dazed, confused and all but paralyzed. There are so many ways to go with a Dallas Cowboys morning-after-the-train wreck article, I find myself staring at the keyboard. There is so much to say, I find myself dumbfounded. I could suggest [...]

Jet-Setting Jerry Jones Contributes to Dallas Cowboys Heart-Breaking Loss

Now that the tenth anniversary of 9/11 is done and we are no longer “all New Yorkers,” the good Texans can get back to being bitter about their team losing a game they were supposed to lose, but never should have lost. Your Dallas Cowboys once again began an NFL season with a near-miss. According [...]

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 [...]

Dallas Cowboys GM Jerry Jones Listens to Rob Ryan, Signs FA Safety Abram Elam

  It is hard for an old-timer (and hard to believe a fan of the early ’90s Cowboys actually qualifies as such, but I guess so) to get his mind around celebrating the presence of a member of Buddy Ryan’s family on the Dallas Cowboys’ coaching staff. Hard. But not impossible. Thanks to the influence of Rob [...]

Dallas Cowboys Owner Jerry Jones Out-Maneuvered by Andy Reid...Again

We are given two reasons Cowboys fans should love having Jerry Jones for their team’s owner: His commitment to winning at any cost and his slick, wheeler-dealer, deal-making skills. Well, that whole commitment to winning at any cost thing has hardly been provable since Jerry took on the mortgage for the new stadium. He has [...]

Dallas Cowboys 2011 NFL Draft: Pouncey and the Prince

The question under consideration today: Will Jerry Jones and his Dallas Cowboys pounce on Mike Pouncey with the number nine pick in the 2011 draft or will Prince Amukamara be given the blue and silver sceptre? Plenty of prognosticators have the Cowboys snagging Prince with their top ten pick. Not many of them, however, are [...]

Dallas Cowboys DC Rob Ryan Has His Father's Eyes and His Renegade Spirit

It remains to be seen whether Rob Ryan has the ability to coach up a defense as brilliantly as his dad Buddy Ryan. One thing that is not in question is whether he is a renegade like his crusty old progenitor. In his first-ever press conference as the Cowboys’ defensive coordinator, Rob Ryan bragged about [...]

Dallas Cowboys' Rich Dalrymple: The Man Assigned to Making the Mad Hatter Seem Sane

Rich Dalrymple of the Dallas Cowboys may have the toughest job in professional sports. No. He does not play quarterback, cornerback or left tackle. To my knowledge, he has never had to read a blitz, cover a speedy receiver or block a bull rushing defensive end.

NFL Lockout: Jerry Jones, Adrian Peterson, and other Reasons to Boycott the NFL

What is the NFFFL? Stick with me, and I will tell you. About the time you figure out which side you support in the NFL lockout, someone on that side makes a remark that makes you think twice. One thing that has become painfully obvious to me is that the concern for the fan is [...]
