Found December 13, 2011 on Fox Sports Southwest:
With the Rangers, it was August. As soon as the August heat set in, NFL training camps were in full swing and kids began to go back to school, the Rangers would take an annual nosedive out of contention in the AL West. To their credit, the Rangers have blown the August jinx out of the water the past two seasons with trips to the World Series. Can't win in Arlington because of the heat? No one says that anymore. But people still say the Cowboys can't win in December. The question is, can Jason Garrett and the players do anything to change that? Sunday's fourth-quarter collapse against the Giants was the Cowboys' second bungle of this December. A week earlier, they blew a chance to pull out an ugly win over the Cardinals. Cowboys observers have seen this December dropoff before, multiple times. In the past 10 seasons, including this one, the Cowboys are a combined 68-46 (.596) in games played prior to December. In games played in December and January, they are ...

Jerry Jones: Garrett's job not in jeopardy

Speculate all you want, but Jason Garrett isnt going anywhere. Asked Tuesday on his weekly radio show if Garretts job as head coach is in jeopardy, Cowboys owner and general manager Jerry Jones seemed surprised the question was even sent in his direction. "Thats not a question, in my mind, that is worth responding to," Jones said on on 105.3 The Fan (KRLD-FM). But the...

Should the Dallas Cowboys fire head coach Jason Garrett?

With the hopes for reaching the playoffs hanging in the balance, one has to wonder if whether or not the Dallas Cowboys should fire Jason Garrett at the end of the regular season. Jason Garrett has only coached the Dallas Cowboys for 21 games, taking over at the mid-season mark in the 2010 regular season after Wade Phillips was fired. You have to wonder if Garrett is...

Fourth Quarters Under Garrett Not Good

In the 21 games with Jason Garrett as the Dallas Cowboys head coach, the red-headed Ivy Leaguer has compiled a 12-9 record after Sunday night's crushing, somewhat shocking loss to their NFC East foe New York Giants. But was it really all that shocking to watch the Cowboys blow a 12-point lead with around five minutes to play in the game that would've all but sealed the division...

Memorable Moments in Sports: Tony Romo’s Botched Snap

It’s only fitting that we post this video after the total debauchery that was the Cowboys loss this weekend.  As a Giants fan I can only smile.   As a Cowboys fan you people must still be dry heaving right now. Look, Romo is a very good quarterback and he did some good things in that last drive but come on.   I know there’s no textbook definition for this but shouldn...

Jerry Finds The Idea Of Bringing In An OC "Humorous"

Jerry Jones has gone on the offensive this week, following a second consecutive week where Jason Garrett’s game management, and in turn his job security, have come into question. Jones delivered what, at least at face value seemed a resounding vote of confidence in Garrett on Tuesday in an interview with ESPN’s Hannah Storm. And as for the idea that Garrett might be helped by...

Who to blame: Dallas edition

The Cowboys have begun their annual meltdown and Bill Barnwell is looking for the scapegoat.  I agree with most of his assessments except (and I never thought I'd say this) blaming Tony Romo for the loss.  Romo gave up a horrific safety and missed Miles Austin once but other than that had a pretty good game.  In the end however the Cowboys lost because they couldn't stop...

Garrett’s thoughts and prayers centered on Phillips

Jason Garrett said he would have no problem with Cowboys assistant coach Wes Phillips leaving the team to be at his father’s side. Texans defensive coordinator and former Cowboys head coach Wade Phillips said Wednesday he will have surgery this week to address a kidney condition. Wade Phillips, 64, declined to specify the condition, but he said it is not life-threatening, not cancer...

Giants-Cowboys Facts, Figures and Trends

The Cowboys, with Tony Romo at QB, have exactly one playoff game. The Giants with Eli Manning at QB, have won four – all in the same postseason. In three other postseasons, they were one and done. To say that both still have much to prove, even though their numbers are impressive, is an understatement. Eli needs to show the world he can still win the big game for the Blue. Romo...

I Hate When WAGs Where Their “Man’s” Jersey

Well, it didn’t take very long to find my new pet-peeve. It came to fruition on Sunday night, with Candace Crawford bouncing around like a ******* in Tony Romo’s jersey. I hate it. I hate when the WAG wears the husbands jersey in the crowd. It irritates me. I understand I’m probably a cold-hearted, negative jerkoff, but you don’t like what you don’t like. Yeah, it’s...

Rob Ryan Doesn't Have A Good History With This Month

A lot of folks are quick to point out that Tony Romo has a less-than-stellar history in the month of December, but he isn’t the only fellow with such a history working at Valley Ranch these days. Defensive coordinator Rob Ryan has also had a pretty poor relationship with this month in the past, though, really, the numbers show that the teams he’s worked for as a defensive coordinator...
