IRVING, Texas Dallas Cowboys tackle Tyron Smith is trying to transform a 15,750 negative into a 15,750 positive.
Through his agent Joe Panos, he's already issued an appeal with the NFL commissioner's office regarding the 15,750 fine issued him for an illegal horse-collar tackle in the second quarter of the Cowboys' season-opening 24-17 win at the Giants. And now, he's working to create something even more positive than the result of the tackle, which prevented a Giants TD.
"We're working on using that (dollar) figure as a target for a really good cause,'' Smith said. "There's a way we can all pitch in and help people.''
Smith, the 21-year-old budding standout, is directing Cowboys fans to raise money for Dallas-based Camp Summit. Camp Summit's mission: to provide barrier-free outdoor experiences promoting personal growth and independence for children and adults with disabilities.
"This can make the whole experience a really positive thing,'' Smith said.
Smith, who got the idea as a result of so many Cowboys fans offering to help him pay the fine, is asking Dallas faithful to instead donate to Camp Summit and to click the "DONATENOW" button and in the dedication line type in, "I support Tyron Smith & Camp Summit!"
Last Tuesday, Smith visited Camp Summit to participate in activities with the campers. It's probably a positive release for him as the Cowboys have struggled to a 2-2 record as they approach their bye week and he wants his actions to be a part of a solution that can have at least 15,750 worth of positives.

The play was on 4th and 1 on the 9 yard line with 1:19 left in the 4th quarter, with the Dallas Cowboys about to go up 23-21 with a Martin Gramatica chip shot. Tony Romo was the backup at the beginning of the season and was the place holder for Gramatica for that season and that game. The snap went off to Romo’s hands, but the ball seemed to slip, causing Gramatica to back off...
So who are the 2012 Dallas Cowboys? Currently they sit at 2-2 after a Monday Night beating by the Bears 34-18. They now enter their bye week with games against the Ravens, Panthers, Giants, Falcons and Eagles coming up. With the way they are playing they could easily go winless against those teams as they go into the middle of November. Once again I find myself scratching my head...
While five Dallas Cowboys players have been ruled out for
Monday night’s game against the Chicago Bears, wide receiver Miles Austin
(hamstring) and defensive end Marcus Spears (knee) are expected to play. Meanwhile, it’s questionable whether or not linebacker
Anthony Spencer (shoulder) will be able to suit up.
Austin found his way onto this week’s injury report...
Cowboys tight end Jason Witten turned in his best performance of the season in Monday's loss to Chicago, catching 13 passes for 112 yards and a touchdown. He only had eight catches in the first three games combined.Fantasy Spin:Witten was plagued by drops and penalties in the first three weeks but he showed up big in Week 4. Fantasy owners will like the four catches, 48 yards...
As previously noted before on this website, the NFL sidelines isn't exactly the safest place in the world as one Dallas Cowboys cheerleader found out last night.
After Dallas wide receiver Dez Bryant made a sideline catch in the third quarter, he was pushed by Chicago Bears safety Chris Conte.
Dez's forward momentum caused him to collide with a camera guy and a Dallas cheerleader...
The Dallas Cowboys are once again fighting to stay in the hunt for a playoff birth. At 2-2, they're by no means in a do-or-die situation, but Jerry Jones hasn't been able to help his team with new talent, and it looks like it's time for Jones to give up the keys to his team's personnel department.
Jerry Jones suffers from a bad case of narcissism. His success...
Kenny and Tinsley do something incredibly difficult right about now and discuss how to make it in America being a Dallas Cowboys fan in 2012.The post How To Make It In America (Being A Dallas Cowboys Fan) appeared first on The Sports Fan Journal.
Tuesday night after the Cowboys played, I went to a sports bar because I was off; the Rangers were playing, and my brother apparently had found a hangout.While there, I wound up in a short discussion with some Cowboys "fans." I had to break it off because I realized they weren't going to listen to me no matter what I said. That's not going to stop me from getting...
Monday Night Football presents Bears-Cowboys this week. Now that sounds fun. If Dallas wins, they join the Eagles at 3-1 atop the NFC East standings. If Chicago wins, they join the Vikings at 3-1 atop the NFC North standings. The Vikes will be alone if first place at the quarter mark should the Bears fold down in Jerry World. Who had that before the season started? As for tonight...
See what I did there?
Tony Romo had an ad at the beginning of the season. It was for Starter and in it, he addressed all of his "haters". He talks about how people are focused on the negative things that he and the Cowboys have done in the past and ends the spot by saying "that's what I'm focused on too".
Good thing, because those roars...

Da Boys lose to Da Bears
The Cowboys lose for the second time in four games—and, just as it we saw in Seattle, it was an embarrassing meltdown of epic proportions.
Tonight’s game left me wondering if I was watching Monday Night Football or Saturday Night Live, because the Cowboys are proving they are not-yet-ready for primetime-players.
Where to begin? oh wait, I...
