ARLINGTON, Texas The Eagles and Cowboys had been hurtling down their own bumpy paths toward a primetime date for a while, finally colliding Sunday at the crossroads of crushing disappointment and wildly overrated.
If we are being honest, it felt more like a game of "incompetence chicken" than an NFL contest.
Eagles: We fumbled away a chance to win.
Cowboys: You think that is bad? We gave up a 98-yard kickoff return in the final minute to give y'all a chance.
Eagles: Well, our coach is so bleeping fired.
Cowboys: So is ours. Well, he likely is.
If the Cowboys had lost Sunday, coach Jason Garrett almost certainly loses his job at season's end and possibly sooner. Why he lives to coach another day is a 38-33 victory against a broken and deflated Eagles team that was more fortuitous than deserved. And I find this confounding.
How can beating Philly save anything?
Whether The Redheaded Genius deserves more time to fix this Cowboys mess is debatable. Settling th...

You didn’t really think we meant champions of anything else, did you? Come now, don’t be silly. A company called Unmetric has taken it upon themselves to see what NFL teams truly succeed in the world of social media. They track engagement by the followers on Facebook and Twitter to come up with their rankings. As it turns out, the Dallas Cowboys are the best when it comes to...
The Cowboys move past the Eagles tonight, and move to 6-6 and somehow still in the playoff hunt. First thing, I’d like to mention is that we’re going to see some people go over board with this win, and think we’re back on track. We are not, the defense has slowly reverted back to its 2011 self, in some part due to injuries. Let’s quell the playoff talk people. There’s still...
Tony Romo has set a Dallas Cowboys record with his 166th touchdown pass, breaking a tie with Hall of Famer and three-time Super Bowl champion Troy Aikman.
Romo's record-breaking pass was a 23-yard touchdown to Dez Bryant in the third quarter of Sunday night's game against Philadelphia. It came in Romo's 89th career start.
Aikman started 165 games for the Cowboys from...
Following a thrilling win at home against Philadelphia the Dallas Cowboys are back in the playoff hunt. The brightest performance from Sunday nights game came from wide receiver Dez Bryant who showcased nationally his ability to be a difference maker.
Bryant has been in the news multiple times this season, almost none of them for good reasons. Still, Cowboy fans are hoping that there...
Most simulations have the Cowboys winning by about a touchdown, or perhaps more.
It’s been a long nine days since the Cowboys ruined our Thanksgiving. Dallas returns to the field tomorrow night to face the Philadelphia Eagles, who have not won since September.
The simulations do not think the game will be close. Notwithstanding the Thanksgiving performance, the sims have the Cowboys...
Cowboys running back DeMarco Murray (foot) is expected to play Sunday night versus Philadelphia, but Adam Schefter is reporting that the Cowboys will limit his workload.Fantasy Spin:Murray hasn't played since Oct. 14 because of sprained foot so this shouldn't be a surprise to fantasy owners. Murray and Felix Jones should share the carries until Murray is completely recovered.
ARLINGTON, Texas It hasn't been the case often this season, but the Cowboys found a way to play their best football in the fourth quarter Sunday night. They scored 21 points during that 15-minute stretch and outlasted the division rival Philadelphia Eagles 38-33.
Here are my five thoughts on the Cowboys improving to 6-6 on the year.
1.) The Cowboys have not traditionally played...
Context is something that is always required to understand what information you are looking at and how much of what seems real can actually be believed. Context tells us if all of this money that our paycheck contains is actually surplus, or whether it has been earmarked for other purposes already. Context tells us if losing 5 pounds is either the destination or the start of the...
Good tidings everyone and welcome, once again, to this quickly/drunkenly-typed blog post of one handsome man’s observations of Sunday Night Football as the world slides toward the end of another calendar year.
There is a recent report that states there is a strong possibility that Andy Reid will be the Cowboys coach next season. This would be fantastical. This would be like the...

Nothing I could write could appropriately describe just how awful this Eagles defense is, but the secondary is just the worst I’ve ever seen.
The Dallas Cowboys moved the ball at will on the Eagles, by land...
The Cowboys stand at 6-6 with four tough games (Cincinnati, Pittsburgh, New Orleans and Washington) remaining. Another season left out of even making the playoffs is highly likely. One of the primary reasons for the disappointing season is a pedestrian ground game. It is trendy to say the NFL is all about passing, but a balanced offense and a stingy defense still results...
