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.

Dallas Cowboys Should Be Patient With Jason Garrett

Many have clamored for Jason Garrett’s termination; I have not. Some have noted a dearth of Jason Garrett criticism in my writing.

Wade Phillips Defensive After Jerry Jones's Remarks About His Future

Cowboys 7, Redskins 6. One could almost stop there and declare, “Enough said.” But it isn’t enough to repeat the shocking score from the Redskins’ first ever visit to the new Jerry World (aka, Cowboys’ Stadium).
