The Cowboys and playoffs don’t even belong in the same sentence, and the reality is the Cowboys playoff hopes are pretty much dead. Outside of week 1, the Cowboys have squeaked by mediocre teams and lost some really poor games. You really do not know what team is going to show up. One thing I do know is that since the Super Bowl in 2000, there has only been one team to make the Super Bowl with a 3-4 record and that was the 2001 Patriots who went on to win the Super Bowl that season against the Rams. The Patriots reeled-off 8 wins and just 1 more loss, finished the season 11-5. We cannot go 2 games below .500 or kiss the season goodbye and label it another season lost. So, what are the odds, that this sloppy, self-inflicting team can just flip the switch this week against the undefeated Falcons in the Georgia Dome? This is truly a do or die game and I do not see it happening, I really don’t. The die hard fan inside me says we should be able to beat Matt Ryan, and we should be able to...

Jones responds to Aikman’s criticism of Dez

Everyone seems to have an opinion on Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant. Troy Aikman just happens to get paid to state his opinion about the talented but mistake prone third year player. “I don’t know of any player in this league that can do the things that he has done to hurt his football team and stay in the game,” Aikman said, according to the New School show on 105...

10 Things I Hate About You: Dallas Cowboys Edition

The Cowboys are 3-4. In my mind, they should be 6-1. The only game they really just got beaten was the Chicago game. They should have beaten Seattle. They should have beaten Baltimore. And they most certainly, despite falling down 23-0 midway though the 2nd quarter, should have beaten the Giants today. Without further ado, [...] Related posts: Cowboys Overcome Mistakes to Beat Redskins...

ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) -- Cowboys linebacker Dan Connor never returned after halftime of Sunday's game against the New York Giants because of a neck strain.

Hog Report: Cowboys' O-Line Historically Bad, Romo Pays the Price

Could the Bucs make a trade for Cowboys’ Jenkins?

About half way through the 2012 season, we know where the Buccaneers rank in pass defense. If you don’t, they are 31st. That is second to last in the league in defending the pass. With the league postponing the NFL trade deadline until Thursday afternoon and the possibility of being without another cornerback, will Tampa Bay make a move to boost their secondary? It is being reported...

Five thoughts on Cowboys' loss to Giants

ARLINGTON, Texas The Cowboys were down 23-0 and rallied to score 24 unanswered. But it was not enough, losing to the New York Giants 29-24. Here are my five thoughts. 1. It's amazing how the Cowboys can toy with their fan base. One minute they look like the worst team in the league and the next minute they make you think they're a playoff contender. While Sunday's...

Cowboys waiting on Murray, not concerned about Bryant

The return of DeMarco Murray in Week 9 is far from certain. Murrary has been hobbled with an injured foot and did not play in Sunday’s loss to the New York Giants. “It seems like he’s moving around a little bit better,” Garrett said. “Again, that’s an injury you have to be patient with. We don’t want to rush him back then take any backward steps. We’ll see how he...

Week 8 Injury Report NY Giants vs Dallas Cowboys

TweetThe week 8 injury report for the game between the NY Giants and Dallas Cowboys has a serious question mark for Big Blue. The list isn't long but a key player is in limbo 4 hours before kickoff. Kenny Phillips, Rocky Bernard and Jacquian Williams are definitely ruled out. Hakeem Nicks has been moved from questionable to probable as has Center David Baas. Ahmad Bradshaw however is...
