Your 2014 Dallas Cowboys: Reason for Hope

I generally operate on the more pessimistic side of the ledger. I, like all devout pessimists, prefer the term “realist,” but not everyone will grant that status. Oddly enough, most optimists are pretty pessimistic about granting a pessimist the “realist” tag. That said, what follows is my stab at optimism where the 2014 Dallas Cowboys is concerned. The [...]

The Jerry Jones Story: A series of unfortunate events | Dallas Cowboys

My youngest daughter was enamored with Lemony Snicket’s Series of Unfortunate Events books. The other day, my grandson was watching the movie with his aunt, who was passing on her love for the stories to the next generation. I could not help, as I watched the cartoonish character portrayed by Jim Carrey, thinking about Jerry [...]

Dallas Cowboys at a crossroads in Monday night tilt with Chicago Bears

The Cowboys are 7-5. Two whole games over .500. For a team that has not finished above .500 in four seasons, that is kind of a big deal. With four games to go, the Cowboys can either make a move towards winning that elusive NFC East title and making the playoffs, or they can slide [...]

Cowboys beat the Giants in a tight, but bloodless game despite promise from Jason Pierre-Paul

Before the Cowboys-Giants game on Sunday, Jason Pierre-Paul—another sports dude with a hyphenated last name, which is just weird, since that is a designation historically used by married women who wanted to hang onto their old identity and incorporate it into the new—promised a Cowboys whooping and a blood-letting, according to Dan Graziano of ESPN.com: [...]

Junior Miller of the Ticket calls for Tony Romo to throw more interceptions

I was flabbergasted this morning while listening to my favorite sports (and guy) talk radio station, KTCK 1310, the Ticket. The Musers (easily the best show on the Ticket) were discussing this year’s Cowboys’ offense, which has taken a decidedly conservative turn. Co-host Junior Miller actually called for more Romo interceptions. Well, he didn’t demand [...]

Dallas Cowboys' Dez Bryant tantrum illustrates why he is no Megatron

In terms of talent, Dez Bryant is among the best wide receivers in the NFL. In terms of being a good, solid team player, a man, he is not worthy of mention in the same sentence as Calvin Johnson. The proof of such was on display Sunday. No doubt, Bryant felt pressure to perform Sunday, [...]

Attention Romo haters: Tony Romo has passed Joe Namath and bettered Marino, Brees, Manning, and Warner

Romo haters we call them, and they are a dime a dozen. They are comprised of both Cowboys fans and Cowboys haters. The deride Tony Romo, calling him a choke artist and (wrongly) insisting that he “always” melts down at the worst possible time. Never mind that in 100 starts (Sunday’s victory over the new-look [...]

Cowboys owner Jerry Jones is delighted with Sunday's 'moral victory'

Let’s establish first things first. The Dallas Cowboys lost their third game in five outings on Sunday. They surrendered 51 points to Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos. They wasted Tony Romo’s stellar performance, in which he out-dueled Hall of Fame bound, top five all-time QB Manning, but Jerry Jones was thrilled. He was delighted with what he [...]

Can DeMarco and DeMarcus carry the Cowboys to victory in San Diego?

Last week, DeMarco Murray had a breakout game against the St. Louis Rams. He went off for 175 yards on 26 carries. His ability to gouge the defense bought Tony Romo time in the pocket. Consequently, Romo finished the game 17 of 24, threw for three touchdowns and had no interceptions. It was one of [...]
