  Rod Woodson is  a Hall of Famer and one of the best DBs in NFL history.  In an interview with, 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.

Cowboys make it clear that legal action will be taken against Jay Ratliff

Romo, Jones have Cowboys on treadmill

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...

Cowboys haven’t filed grievance against Ratliff, yet

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.

McCray's return should help Cowboys' depth at safety

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...

Romo: Cowboys have to handle pass rush better

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. Quarterback...

Tony Romo backs Dez Bryant

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.

Waters...

Dallas Cowboys: 2013 Week 9 NFL Power Rankings (#12)

Last week: 11 (-1) Record: 4-4 You can call it a crushing loss for the Cowboys, but they did not deserve to win that game.
