No doubt you’ve seen the writing on the wall so I’m sure you already have your agent eyeing teams you can land with next season. Hey, you’re going to need to recoup some of the money you’re going to lose once Jerry Jones drops you this off-season. Besides, can you really blame Jerry for going that route? You’ve been maddeningly inconsistent this season while Murray has been super productive over these past four games. Many people, including me, were a little skeptical that Murray’s 253-yard outing against the Rams may have been a fluke but he [...]

Cowboys a more complete team than Giants

DALLAS As of this moment, the Dallas Cowboys have the upper hand in the NFC East. And yes, I realize the New York Giants technically hold a one-game lead based on their 6-3 record. At worst, the Cowboys (5-4) should be in a tie for first in the division when they host the Giants on Dec. 11. The schedule makers were incredibly kind to the Cowboys during the holiday season. They...
