Cowboys - Packers: Observations from Section 317

Observations from Section 317: ~ FIGHT. It’s what’s on their t-shirts, it’s what their coaches expected of these players, it’s what Cowboys fans wanted to see. Our Boys did just that –they did it all season. ~ Those #FinishThisFight videos we’ve been watching all week? They were AMAZING on the big screen in The Stadium. […]

2016 Dallas Cowboys: and a child (or two) shall lead them (back to football glory)

Is there any sense debating whether 2016 is the unlikeliest year in Dallas Cowboys history?

Ray Lewis and the culture of convenient and celebrity Christianity

Last night, NFL pundits celebrated the illustrious career of one of the fiercest competitors to ever don an NFL uniform. From the analysts in the booth and studio to the hundreds of media types tweeting sentimental snippets, Lewis was hailed as a great leader, a great competitor, a great tackler…great, great, great. 1/3/13 -“Do you […]

Silver and BlueBlood says goodbye to a banner year

2012 is almost in the books. For the Dallas Cowboys, the tale of this football year has yet to be told. But for Silver and BlueBlood (SBB), the books are all but closed. And, thanks to our faithful readers, Facebook friends and Twitter followers, it was far and away the best year yet, as I […]
