Rod Woodson is a Hall of Famer and one of the best DBs in NFL history. In an interview with NFL.com, Woodson gave his opinion on who he thinks should make the Hall of Fame, and Cowboys All Pro TE Jason Witten doesn’t make the cut.
“I don’t think he’s a Hall of Famer. I love his numbers, but we’re going have to get to a point in our league where you don’t go by numbers anymore. We never gameplanned to stop Jason Witten like Shannon Sharpe or Tony Gonzalez”
Woodson also felt former teammate, Jerome Bettis, shouldn’t get in over Terrell Davis. Woodson seems to take the position that a shorter, dominate career is more important than a consistent, long career.

Not long after the release of DT Jay Ratliff Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said that he wouldn’t comment because it was a “legal issue.” Now it appears that Jones green-lighted an article that shed some light on his comments.
“This absolutely should be a legal matter,” Jeff Sullivan of Dallas Cowboys Star Magazine writes in an article posted on the team’s official website...
The Dallas Cowboys listed DeMarcus Ware (thigh) as doubtful once again. This was expected to be an injury to last a few weeks but it is looking more long term. The team will also be without wide receiver Miles Austin (hamstring) and Cornerback Morris Claiborne (hamstring) is out. Missing Mo Claiborne will hurt the team […]
Napoleon didn't know much about the NFL. But his view on mediocrity reads like a scouting report on the Dallas Cowboys.
"When small men attempt great enterprises, they always end by reducing themselves to the level of their mediocrity."
The NFL's great enterprise is the Super Bowl, though in Dallas a simple playoff win now qualifies. Much of the futility can be...
So when Cowboys owner Jerry Jones uses the term “legal matter” when talking about former Cowboys defensive tackle Jay Ratliff, what is Jones referring to?
Under the labor deal between the NFL and the NFLPA, the team’s only potential legal recourse comes from the filing of a so-called non-injury grievance under Article 43.
Both the Cowboys and the NFL have advised PFT that...
The Cowboys got some good news on the injury front, for once. Safety Danny McCray returned to practice Friday.
McCray, who was sidelined with hip and toe injuries, was only a limited participant and is listed as questionable (50-50) for Sunday's game against the Vikings.
But if McCray, who also plays special teams, can contribute as a backup at free safety it will bolster the...
IRVING, Texas When the Cowboys scored 48 points in a loss to Denver, it supposedly woke up the offense.
Well, the offense has been in a slumber lately.
Two weeks ago, the Cowboys scored just 17 points at Philadelphia. They were also 5 of 16 on third down conversions.
Last Sunday at Detroit, the Cowboys gained just 268 yards and were just 3 of 13 on third downs.
With audio now available to back up Dez Bryant's claim that he was saying only positive things when he was seen shouting at Tony Romo in a sideline rant last weekend, the Dallas quarterback was ready to offer a passionate defense of his top receiver.
Romo took care of it without the arm-waving that landed the emotional Bryant in the headlines again.
"Does he need to sometimes...
Jay Ratliff continues to tell people that he plans to play this season, despite being released by Dallas for his inability to get healthy.
Ian Rapoport is reporting that Ratliff has had visits with the Chiefs and Bears in consecutive days, but no workouts.
Ex-#Cowboys DT Jay Ratliff visited the #Chiefs Tuesday and the #Bears Wednesday, source says. Getting closer to getting back...
Guard Brian Waters’ season hasn’t officially been declared over, but the finality of it could come Saturday.
That’s when the Dallas Cowboys need to set their roster for Sunday’s game against the Minnesota Vikings, and it seems inevitable that Waters will go on season-ending injured reserve, something executive vice president Stephen Jones alluded to Friday afternoon.
Last week: 11 (-1)
You can call it a crushing loss for the Cowboys, but they did not deserve to win that game. They were outgained by 355 yards, only the 24th time that had happened to a team since 1989 and lost despite winning the turnover battle by 4, only the 20th time that had happened to a team since 1989. They won’t always be able to force turnovers and they have...
Former Cowboy Safety and three-time Superbowl Championsip winner Darren Woodson gave his take on this week’s outburst from Dez Bryant, calling the media “unfair”. He agrees with what Steeler's Safety Ryan Clark a lot of people are saying are saying about the negative slant that some media put on Dez for being emotional and passionate about the game. Woodson, like many...
According to ESPN’s Ed Werder, former Cowboys defensive tackle Jay Ratliff has visited with both the Chiefs and Bears.

The Chicago Bears agreed to terms with former Dallas Cowboys DT Jay Ratliff Saturday on a one-year deal, hoping he can return to his former Pro Bowl status and give the Bears struggling defensive line a boost. Ratliff’s agent, Mark Slough, confirmed the signing and stated that he expects Ratliff to return to action within the month. “He’s still probably two [...]
