Dallas Cowboys 2012 Schedule: This will be tough sledding, boys

  Know what I hate? Preseason predictions. I hate it when some radio or TV personality takes an NFL team's upcoming schedule and goes week by week, predicting wins and losses. One reason I hate it is because of how much the face of the NFL changes from year to year. This free agency era [...]

Sporting News: Cowboys coach Jason Garrett among the worst in the NFL

You can always tell when it is a slow news day in the NFL. Someone at Bleacher Report or ESPN or, in this case, The Sporting News comes out with a list. And why not? Lists are great fun. They cause a stir, create debate and generally keep the football stew stirred until it is [...]
