Jerry Jones vs Tom Landry: A retrospective

When Jerry Jones stormed into Dallas like an Arkansas Razorback on crack, he shook the city to its core. The firing of Tom Landry was a monumental moment in DFW and Cowboys’ history.

The Last Cowboy: A Life of Tom Landry by Mark Ribowsky | A Book Review

When I was a kid, there were three things I knew I could count on: God and His Son, Jesus Christ; my mom and dad; and Tom Landry. Tom Landry was the rock-jawed, suit-clad, fedora-topped figure patrolling the sidelines of Texas stadium, giving guidance and stability to America’s Team, my beloved Dallas Cowboys. He had [...]

Dallas hates Skip Bayless, but even Bayless knows the Cowboys rule

Dallas hates Skip Bayless…and for good reason. Bayless has always been a marginally-talented shock jock. Hack, if you will. He parlays controversial opinions into face time on TV. He says more and knows less than anyone I can think of. Well, those are my opinions. I doubt I am alone in them. Bayless first garnered [...]

The revival of the Dallas Cowboys and Washington Redskins rivalry

It has been a long time since the Dallas Cowboys and Washington Redskins rivalry really mattered. Over the past 15 years or so, the NFC East has been dominated by the New York Giants and Philadelphia Eagles. But things change.

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 [...]

Top Ten Quotes from Dallas Cowboys

I love a good quote. Who doesn’t? When you quote someone else, not only do you get to borrow from the genius or insight of another, you can do so without culpability. If anyone takes issue with it, just say, “Hey, I didn’t say it. I was just repeating what so and so said.” I [...]
