Despite another disappointing, middle-of-the-road finish at 8–8, despite missing the playoffs for the third time in four years, despite boasting a roster of very few defensive stars and more than a few offensive underachievers, Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones has remained optimistic, saying that he expected his team to be a Super Bowl contender in the 2012–13 campaign. In the first two days of NFL free agency, Jones put his money where his mouth was. Despite being slapped with a $10 million fine by NFL commissioner Roger Goodell for salary cap transgressions during last year’s uncapped season (I know, how can you transgress against a nonexistent cap, unless you are violating a wink-wink collusion agreement?), Jones and company stepped into the batter’s box, swinging for the fences.

I Will Always Be A Bradie James Fan

I’ve been very fond of Bradie James for years now. You would often find me screaming, “I love me some Bradie” or simply “BRADDDIIIEEEE” during games and game chats.

Bradie...

Reviewing the Cowboys week of activity

The NFL offseason is now cruising by at a rapid pace. The news brings new developments on a seemingly daily basis, and I have been scolded by many of my readers for not weighing in each day on the developments.

Jerry finally issues apology via free agency

Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones finally issued a heartfelt apology to his organization's loyal fan base.
