Shatter The Backboard:
Jerry Jones told Bob Costas over the weekend that Jones the owner would have fired Jones the G.M. by now. After Sunday night’s loss to the Falcons, the Cowboys may have tried to fire both guys.
According to Matt Barrie of NBC 5 in Dallas, “Jerry Jones just pounded [the] locker room door because no one would let him in. It’s the angriest I’ve seen him all year.”
Like him or not, the guy owns the team. He has every right to be in the locker room after the game. So we can understand why he’s mad.… Read more

After last night’s prime time loss – in which many folks are choosing to focus on whether or not Atlanta did enough to wow us, rather than on how Dallas failed to take advantage of an Atlanta squad that they held out of the ‘wow zone’ – those who are fans of the Cowboys are questioning their team, their quarterback, their owner and their coach.
Nothing new there… but...
Whenever you study something long enough, you begin to see the trends and patterns and normal fluctuations that make them normal. They have happened before, they will happen again, and we should not all lose our minds when we see it because it is not that abnormal.
However, there are other times, when sample sizes are big enough to really be a cause for concern. Every Tuesday,...
The Dallas Cowboys have announced that injuries quarterback
Tony Romo and defensive lineman Jay Ratliff sustained against the Atlanta
Falcons are minor, reports Nick Eatman of CBSSports.com. While they are each
expected to play Sunday, the status running back DeMarco Murray remains in
question as he continues to rehab his sprained foot.
Ratliff was diagnosed with a low-ankle...

According to Bryan Broaddus of DallasCowboys.com, Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant will play in tonight’s game against the Falcons.
It was reported earlier today that Bryant was going to be a game-time decision.
I expect Bryant to...
Well, we’re officially halfway through the 2012 season and we’re sitting two below .500 at 3-5. What’s next for this team is anyone’s guess, what I do know is that Jason Garrett should either relinquish his play calling duties or they should be stripped in favor of Bill Callahan. For the remainder of the season, we should roll with Callahan and see where he can take us. There...
Dallas Cowboys coach Jason Garrett is keeping his focus on the next game, the way he always does.
As for any questions about his future, or the possibility of being replaced by Sean Payton, Garrett said his focus Monday was on cleaning up mistakes from Sunday night's loss at Atlanta and starting to prepare to play at Philadelphia.
Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said he has '...
Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones says that wide receiver Dez Bryant is doing better at not making so many mistakes off the field. He also said that Bryant reminds him of himself at his age.
“What I see from Dez Bryant is an evolving. And he is getting better. He’s– better as a player,” said Jones per the Dallas Morning News. ” He’s– has– certainly continues...
The day started off poorly for Cowboys coach Jason Garrett and ended even worse.
Garrett was greeted with the news Sunday morning that the contract extension signed by New Orleans Saints coach Sean Payton was voided by the NFL. That means Payton can sign with any team after the season.
Payton is a former Cowboys assistant. Payton and his family still live in the Dallas area. Payton...
There is no other way to lead a recap of Sunday’s games than with a discussion of Doug Martin’s effort. I spent the week talking about how the loss of the best guard in football may have an impact on this line (lets give Tampa’s o-line some credit, too) and the run game. Martin and his teammates proved me wrong on game day. Oakland fought valiantly to stay in this game, but...
Jason Garrett (Princeton graduate, left) tries to remind Mike Smith (East Tennessee State University graduate, right) about the value of an Ivy League degree on an NFL sideline.
When the schedule came out for the 2012 season, most (including me) looked at December, because that’s when the Dallas Cowboys usually implode.
Then we looked at the middle of the schedule—three straight...
Cowboys coach Jason Garrett acknowledged Monday that he is aware of speculation about Sean Payton being a possible candidate to take his job if Payton becomes a free agent after this season.
But it is not something Garrett will be dwelling on as the Cowboys (3-5) seek to end a two-game losing streak Sunday at Philadelphia.
Certainly, some people bring those kinds of things...
Sean Payton could haunt Jason Garrett in Dallas.
The Atlanta Falcons improved to 8-0 on the season with a 19-13 win over the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday Night Football.
Falcons QB Matt Ryan threw for 342 yards while Michael Turner had a good night on the ground with 102 rushing yards and a touchdown.
Meanwhile Cowboys QB Tony Romo threw for 321 yards and a touchdown with WR Kevin Ogletre had three receptions for 96 yards and a touchdown...
The best thing that could happen to Jason Garrett would be for his kicker and punter to resign mid-game. There's no doubt Dan Bailey and Brian Moorman already feel bad for enabling that kind of cowardice.
It would be nice if Doug Martin (four catches, 21 yards) were more involved in the passing game.
The Colts had four receivers with 75 or more yards.
