Dallas Cowboys On The Yellow Brick Road to Nowhere

We’re not in Kansas anymore, Toto. We’re not in the NFC East race anymore, either. We’re also not in the playoff picture. We’re not even relevant. The Monday night debacle between the Dallas Cowboys and their hated rivals from New York, the Giants, was surreal. I kept feeling like I was watching yet another re-run of […]

Even at 1-4, The Dallas Cowboys Can Still Win The NFC East

No. This is not a crack pipe in my hand. No. I am not delusional, deranged or mentally deficient, despite any testimony to the contrary by anyone who knows me well. I know that, since the NFL went to the current playoff formula, only five in 1,345,277 one-and-four teams have made the playoffs. (OK, so […]

Jerry Jones Gives Dallas Cowboys Fans Worst Possible News

What is the worst news you could get right now as a fan of the Dallas Cowboys? Would it be a season-ending injury to Tony Romo or DeMarcus Ware? Or maybe that Miles Austin had been traded? While any of those things would absolutely stink, none of them is the worst scenario I can imagine. […]

Mission Field Report: Eagles Fans And Cowboys Fans Are More Alike Than You Think

What do Philadelphia Eagles fans and Dallas Cowboys fans have in common? More than you might think. I just came home to Dallas from a two-month stint in Philadelphia. No, I wasn’t sent there as punishment for my sins. Nor was I there as a missionary to convert the poor, lost Eagles fans. I was […]

Did NFC East Linemen Jason Peters and David Diehl Sabotage Romo in the Pro Bowl?

Something smelled fishy along the NFC’s offensive line in the fourth quarter of the Pro Bowl last night. The smell was so rank it raised a troubling question: did Pro Bowl 2010 feature two offensive linemen laying down on the job, giving defenders a free pass to the quarterback? Tony Romo haters will point out […]

Brett Favre Versus Tony Romo: The Old Gunfighter and the Young Gun

Everyone knows that long before he packed his bags and took that boyish grin to Dallas, Tony Romo was a Wisconsin boy, a cheese head. Everyone knows he idolized the Green Bay Packers great, Brett Favre. Everyone knows that, in today’s NFL, there is no other quarterback whose game more closely resembles Favre’s than Tony […]

For Dallas Cowboys, the "D" is for Domination

I am sure NBC’s stellar broadcast crew hoped for a better game to close out Chris Collinsworth’s inaugural season in the catbird seat. They would have loved a nail-biter, a classic, one for the ages. They didn’t get a nail-biter or a classic. They did get one for the ages. They got the game that […]

Super Bowl XLIV Will Be Jerry Bowl I

Welcome to the brave world of NFL playoff predictions, where a writer puts his reputation for good sense and objective reasoning on the line by making a way-too-specific prediction about things to come. I feel like a weatherman, but even they have the good sense to hedge their bet. “There is a 50% chance of […]

Twelve Reasons the '09 Version of the Dallas Cowboys Won the NFC East

Raise your hand if you have ever dog-cussed Jason Garrett or said Wade Phillips should be fired (or worse). God bless you. I see that hand. Yes, and yours too. Oh, and yours, way back in the corner. And yes…my hand is raised, as well. Guilty. All over the vast expanse of Jerry’s magnificent, shiny […]

Who Will Be The Team of the Teens?

Who will be The Team of the Teens? By that, I do not mean the team of kids between 12 and 19. I mean the team that will outshine all others in the 2010—2019 decade. The team that will record multiple Super Bowl victories. The team everyone else will hate and emulate at the same […]
