On December 8, Dallas Cowboys nose tackle Josh Brent and teammate Jerry Brown were involved in a car crash that ended in the death of Brown. The death of Brown occurred because the driver, Brent, was intoxicated.
Today, a report has come out that Brent’s blood-alcohol level was listed at 0.189 which is more than double the legal limit.
Initially, on the scene, Brent refused to take an alcohol test. He was only tested after he no longer had the option to say no when Brown had died. That means that some time had passed before Brent’s alcohol level was tested. Brent’s blood-alcohol level was most likely well above 0.20 when he was driving the Mercedes.
CBSNews, has more on the accident:
According to the document, Brent had no proof of insurance in the car. The report also shows Brent had an expired and suspended Illinois driver’s license.
An accident investigator says Brent “was intoxicated, speeding over the limit, and failed to drive in a single lane.”
The report says while traveling on the 114 service road, Brent hit the right curb, causing him to lose control. Then he steered to the left and back to the right over-correcting, causing him to slide out of control into the right curb, then slide into a ditch, overturn, and slide on the roof back onto the roadway, where the Mercedes came to a stop.

Former Dallas Cowboys great Drew Pearson, the owner of the original number 88 jersey, thinks the Cowboys need to go after Washington Redksins QB hard, very hard, even if it costs them penalties.

5- Jason Garrett, Cowboys

I don’t think Jason Garrett has much to worry about. It definitely wouldn’t hurt to get a win over the Redskins this week and clinch the very competitive NFC East. That being said, he IS the head coach of the Dallas Cowboys and will have to deal with Jerry Jones after the season ends. If Garrett’s team makes...
The hype that has already surrounded this match, you could be forgiven for thinking that there was something more than a division title up for grabs. Of course, throw in the added ingredient of one of pro sports most heated rivalries, and the fact that a playoff place is there for the winners, something that both franchises have been starved of in recent times, its easy to see...
The Cowboys and Redskins are playing for the NFC East this weekend, this is why people love the NFL.
Entering the last week of the season I'm sitting at 153-87. That's ok but not great. I'd like to be over 170 for the season, but it is what it is at this point. Let's finish strong.

2012 is almost in the books.
For the Dallas Cowboys, the tale of this football year has yet to be told. But for Silver and BlueBlood (SBB), the books are all but closed. And, thanks to our faithful readers, Facebook friends and Twitter followers, it was far and away the best year yet, as I will demonstrate with the following snippet taken from the admin page of the site:
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...
