And here we thought Kyle Orton had given up the bottle for good. A trained spotter at Sandestin Village, a resort in Destin, Fla., snapped a shot on July 4 of the Dallas Cowboys QB keeping company with a bottle. Maybe it was a non-alcoholic brew. Yeah, not likely. What does this mean for the Internet? What does this mean for Dallas bars after tough losses?
This could get good.
Seriously, drunk Kyle Orton used to be big business for Busted Coverage. Back in 2008 & 2009 the guy was a force. Posted in January 2009, our 2 Girls & 1 Passed Out Kyle Orton post was the height of this guy’s drinking fame. And then he disappeared from the bar scene.
Maybe it was marriage that kept him at home. Then, a year ago in August, he became a father. Both great reasons to stop drinking Jack Daniels like it’s water. Photos of Orton and alcohol just didn’t exist.
But, as @kylebritt shows us (see below), Orton is back. Can’t blame him. Not like he really needs to be in great shape or have a solid mind to be the Cowboys backup. Just stand there and clap every now and then for Romo, hit the showers and go straight to the bar.
If you see this man in the wild hitting a Bud or Jack bottle, we want to know about it. Do you have a Kyle Orton drinking story to share? Send it in.

The Cowboys get the honor of helping to kick off the 2012 NFL season, as they will travel to the Meadowlands to face the Giants. New York opened as favorites, and the Cowboys will try and get some form of revenge from their 2011 collapse. Dallas lost out on their chance at the playoffs, largely in part to the eventual Super Bowl champs. NFL odds favor the Giants at -3, with a total...
Cole Beasly in an undrafted free agent out of SMU, and if nothing else, raised the bar for himself to a very high level. Beasley through a radio interview 105.5, and via the Dallas Morning News, and seemed annoyed by the Welker comparison.
“I get tired of it because I feel like I have a little more speed than Wes Welker does.”
At 5’8’ and 182 pounds, Beasley has a similar...
According to ESPN Dallas, Cowboys Owner/GM Jerry Jones suggested that Andre Holmes has the inside track to be the Cowboys’ #3 receiver. Behind starters Dez Bryant and Miles Austin, the Cowboys lack any proven depth having lost Laurent Robinson in the offseason. Bryant and Austin have histories of injury problems, so that could be a problem.
Holmes is competing with Kevin Ogletree...
The interior offensive line was a major problem for the Cowboys last year, which is why they didn’t bring either Montrae Holland or Kyle Kosier back. Those were their two starting guards and they’re both still available on the open market, which shows just how bad things were. The Cowboys thought they had fixed things when they signed Nate Livings and Mackenzy Bernadeau, even...
HE'S HIS OWN MAN
Cole Beasley, a 5'8" undrafted receiver trying to land with the Cowboys, said he's getting tired of the frequent comparisons made between himself and Wes Welker.
Dallas Cowboys nose tackle Jay Ratliff has sat out the entire offseason after suffering a torn plantar fascia at the beginning of the Cowboys’ offseason program.
“I’ve just been rehabbing, even now,” Ratliff said Tuesday, per DallasCowboys.com. “Just getting treatment and getting right, getting ready for the season.”
So far Ratliff and the Cowboys medical...
During an ESPN Chat, Dallas Cowboys running back DeMarco Murray indicated that his ankle is doing great and he won’t be limited once training camp kicks off in a couple of weeks.
“The ankle is doing great. I’ll be able to do whatever the coaches want me to do,” said Murray.
If the Cowboys are going to have a shot at getting back to the playoffs, they’re going...
Two years ago, the Dallas Cowboys made Dez Bryant their first-round selection. Now, it is uncertain Bryant will be a member of America’s Team for much longer.

According to a report from Pro Football Weekly’s Nolan Nawrocki, Bryant is not in the Cowboys’ plans for the future.
The way we hear it, the Cowboys do not intend...
Wes Welker has caught 554 balls over the past five seasons. For those of you who aren’t familiar with NFL stats, that is an astronomical amount of catches for a five-year period. In three of those five seasons, Welker led all NFL receivers in receptions. With that in mind, it would stand to reason that any NFL rookie — especially an undrafted free agent — would be honored to...
Cowboys coach Jason Garrett admits that SMU undrafted free agent receiver Cole Beasley falls into the Wes Welker, Danny Amendola stereotype because he is an undersized white receiver.
The start of the NFL season for the Dallas Cowboys will be here before you know it.
After a little series on how the Titans were intercepted in 2011, it's time to look at the defensive side of the ball and how the Titans intercepted the opposing team in 2011.As I noted in that series, interception rates tend to fluctuate a bit. The Titans came out at 3.5%, +0.7% relative to league average in 2008. In 2009, they came out at 3.3%, +0.2% relative to league average...
