Found November 01, 2013 on Pro Football Zone:

According to Bart Hubbuch of the New York Post,  former Dallas Cowboys head coaching great Tom Landry died a fan of the New York Giants. In a book written by Landry’s widow,  she stated that her husband was so upset with how poorly Jerry Jones treated him after he was fired,  that he routed for the Giants for the remainder of his life. In the book titled “The Last Cowboy: A Life of Tom Landry,” by Long Island author Mark Ribowsky, Alicia Landry,  it states that Jones also took away Landry’s suite at the old Cowboys Stadium and also banned his son Tom Jr. from purchasing season tickets. Landry was the Giants defensive coordinator in 1954, so it was easy for him to cheer for them.  His widow supports Big Blue to this day because of her husbamd. “The Giants are still like family,” Alicia Landry said in a December 2011 interview, according to the book. “I still have dinner with Ann Mara [Wellington Mara’s widow] when she comes in. …The Giants never stopped being our family.” Need NFL Tickets?

Cowboys make it clear that legal action will be taken against Jay Ratliff

Romo, Jones have Cowboys on treadmill

Napoleon didn't know much about the NFL. But his view on mediocrity reads like a scouting report on the Dallas Cowboys.

The NFL's great enterprise is the Super Bowl, though in Dallas a simple playoff win now qualifies. Much of the futility can be...

Maybe a little of both.There is plenty of talent in this 25-year-old receiver, but the Giants' coaching staff must first find a way to bring out the skills that have made him effective in blue and red before.According to the New York Daily News, “Nicks has 34 catches...

McCray's return should help Cowboys' depth at safety

The Cowboys got some good news on the injury front, for once. Safety Danny McCray returned to practice Friday. McCray, who was sidelined with hip and toe injuries, was only a limited participant and is listed as questionable (50-50) for Sunday's game against the Vikings. But if McCray, who also plays special teams, can contribute as a backup at free safety it will bolster the...

Romo: Cowboys have to handle pass rush better

IRVING, Texas When the Cowboys scored 48 points in a loss to Denver, it supposedly woke up the offense. Well, the offense has been in a slumber lately. Two weeks ago, the Cowboys scored just 17 points at Philadelphia. They were also 5 of 16 on third down conversions. Last Sunday at Detroit, the Cowboys gained just 268 yards and were just 3 of 13 on third downs. Quarterback...

New York Giants: 2013 Week 9 NFL Power Rankings (#27)

Last week: 27 (+0) Record: 2-6 The Giants are only 2 games back in the NFC East after winning two in a row. Considering their tendency to rip off multiple wins in a row over the past 10 years in the Manning/Coughlin era, they should not be taken lightly by the rest of the division. Their turnover margin has gone from -16 in the first 6 games to +4 over the past 2 weeks. Of course...

Cowboys Continue Reign of Mediocrity Unlike Anything We’ve Seen

  Of course they did. Of course the Dallas Cowboys blew a pair of 10-point fourth-quarter leads in excruciating fashion at Detroit on Sunday, losing 31-30 to the Lions to fall back to .500, reaching midseason at 4-4. Back to .500 is the Cowboys’ default setting. How can we even be surprised at this point? It’s just the natural order of things in Dallas. Seasons come and seasons...
