Found December 27, 2012 on Sports-Glory:

Former Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Drew Pearson, the original No. 88, wants the Cowboys to knock Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III around, even if it costs them a penalty. Peterson told KESN-FM: "We gave RGIII a lot of confidence playing against the Cowboys in our first game here in Cowboys Stadium so we need to take it to him. We need to let him know that it’s not going to be that easy or we’re not going to lay down for them and we’re not intimidated by him." "The way you do that is you go out on that field and you knock him around. Even if it costs you a 15-yard penalty, and I’m only saying this if it’s not a critical situation or anything. Sometimes you have to deliver that kind of blow and that kind of message to let him know it’s going to be like this all day and not a walk in the park. We need to establish this with RGIII and the Redskins as well.” The Cowboys will have to contain RG3 to have a chance to win the NFC East. Pearson said the Cowboys-Redskins both vying for a playoff berth is just like old times. "I’m so fired up. This is the way it used to be back in the day. Most of the time, we were playing for the NFC title. It never really came down to where we played a game like this where if you win your in." These guys have to Google this or go back in time to understand the importance of this rivalry… The reason it was so intense back in the day was because it was always us or the Redskins vying for that NFC East title.”

Dez does Dallas: The emergence of Dez Bryant and the Dallas Cowboys

Jerry Jones gave Dez Bryant the number 88 when he drafted him. It is the same number worn by Hall of Famer Michael Irvin and should-be Hall of Famer (and recent Ring of Honor inductee) Drew Pearson. To old Cowboy fans like me, it is a pretty special number in Cowboys lore. On April 23, 2010, ESPN.com quoted Jones giving his reason for giving Dez the hallowed 88: “I think that Dez...

Romo continues to carry Cowboys on his back

Sunday was a truly bizarre game to analyze for a number of different reasons - not the least of which is that the Cowboys hardly ever got to touch the ball in the first 3 quarters. The Saints dominated the time of possession and thereby dictated the tempo and the feel of the game. In the first quarter alone, the Cowboys touched the ball for just 2:57, leaving the 12:03 to the Saints...

Sunday Night Football: Battle for the Last Playoff Spot

For the first time in recent memory, the Sunday Night Football game this week is possibly the best game on the docket. Perhaps not because of the quality of the game it might be, but for what is at stake; the NFC East crown. Nice work with the whole “flex” schedule…finally. With the defending champion Giants pretty much having their season ended the past two weeks in Atlanta...
