Time isn't right for Brent to be near Cowboys

In light of what happened Friday morning in Newtown, Conn., I had a tough time mustering too much indignation over Cowboys nose tackle Josh Brent showing up on the sideline of a nationally televised game against the Pittsburgh Steelers. It was certainly inappropriate that a player accused of intoxication manslaughter related to the death of his teammate and close friend Jerry Brown...

Bond lowered for Brent, must wear monitor

DALLAS (AP) -- A judge ordered Dallas Cowboys nose tackle Josh Brent to wear an electronic monitor pending his trial on an intoxication manslaughter charge in the one-car crash that killed a teammate.

Dez Bryant Feels Good Following Sunday's Game

Cowboys receiver Dez Bryant came out of Sunday's game without any further injury to his left hand.Fantasy Spin:Bryant was obviously protecting the broken finger, but he still managed to produce double-digit points for fantasy owners with four catches for 59 yards and a touchdown.

Late-season surge has Cowboys in control of fate

Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones can't help but think about the New York Giants going from 7-7 to a Super Bowl title last season. Maybe Jones was a little giddy after the Cowboys beat Pittsburgh 27-24 in overtime Sunday for their third straight win. Dallas is tied for first in the NFC East after winning three straight games and five of six. For the first time in weeks, the...

((HT: WFAA-TV)) In addition to the shock and surprise by the head coach at seeing Josh Brent on the sidelines last Sunday- despite it being voted on by his players, now the Dallas Cowboys player charged in the death of a teammate now wears a bracelet that determines his alcohol intake...

Josh Brent Makes On The Cowboys’ Sidelines: Why!

Just eight days after being charged with intoxication manslaughter, an offense for which he could receive up to 20 years in prison, Josh Brent was on the Cowboys sidelines for their match-up with the Pittsburgh Steelers.  The accident took the life of teammate Jerry Brown.  At the time of the crash police say that Josh…

“YEEEE HAAAAWWWWWWW WE DRUNK DRIVING TO THE CLUB TONIGHT”

Jerry Jones was elated when the Cowboys triumphed in overtime. He also had Josh Brent on the sideline for the game. Coincidence? Vehicular homicides are the new good luck charms. 2-0 since then. Is there any doubt if DUI homicides were a good luck charm that the Double J would do them every week? The post “YEEEE HAAAAWWWWWWW WE DRUNK DRIVING TO THE CLUB TONIGHT” appeared first...

Making sense of the NFC East; scenarios for the Redskins, Cowboys and Giants to win the division

It hasn't been the most dominant year for the teams of the NFC East, but with three teams knotted up at 8-6 with just two games to play, the NFC East may give us one of the most exciting divisional finish we've ever seen. As it stands, the Redskins lead the NFC East, but they're not the only team in the division that controls their own destiny. The Dallas Cowboys, coming...

Brandon Carr’s overtime interception set up Dan Bailey’s game-winning field goal. The Dallas Cowboys may have quietly ended their traditional December slump.

With today’s win over the Pittsburgh Steelers...
