Sean Payton: Heir to the Cowboys Throne? “Sean Payton to coach Dallas Cowboys.” No one would be surprised if that was the leading headline in the coming NFL off-season. Since the NFL voided Payton’s contract with the New Orleans Saints, speculation about Jerry Jones setting his sights on the former Cowboys assistant has run rampant. And why not? We have seen it before. Jerry experiments with puppet coaches. He coaches from behind the scenes until the franchise sinks into three straight 5–11 seasons. Then, in desperation, he hires himself a real man, a real coach that will demand real authority. Namely, Bill Parcells. Parcells restores sanity and order and builds a viable NFL roster and then goes his merry way, leaving Jones to hire another man just happy to be here and more than willing to let Jones call all of the shots that really matter. Enter Wade Phillips. Phillips falls short, as he always does and always will as a head coach. So, Jones hires a young man with a good pedigree, ...

Report: Saints, Sean Payton not yet working on a new contract

Last week it was reported that Sean Payton’s contract with the New Orleans Saints has been voided by the NFL and he’ll be free to sign with any team he likes once the season is over. According to Dan Parr of ProFootballWeekly.com, even though both Payton and the Saints have indicated that they plan on working everything out, both sides haven’t been talking. However, our sources...

With Murray Out, Cowboys better Run No Huddle

The Misery Bowl kicks off at 3:15 cst, and by the end of the game either the Cowboys or Eagles fan bases will be put out of their misery – the loser will be planning ahead for 2013. Its been a torturous season for Cowboys Nation, and by most accounts this game is the end-all be-all for the season. This game is up for grabs. I would have liked to think the Cowboys will win this...

Ryan has cheesesteak ad on playcall sheet

@darrenrovell During today’s Cowboys – Eagles game, someone noticed that defensive coordinator Rob Ryan sold some ad space on his defensive play-calling sheet. As you can see from the above photo there’s a Pat’s Kings of Steaks logo on the back of his sheet.  Would love to know how much they’re paying him. Pat’s Kings Of Steaks on Rob Ryan’s Play Chart twitter.com...

Cowboys promote CB Agnew, cut LB Guyton

The Dallas Cowboys promoted cornerback Vincent Agnew and cut linebacker Gary Guyton in preparation for Sunday's game against the Philadelphia Eagles, according to the team's website. The moves were made Saturday because of cornerback Mike Jenkins' back injury. Agnew was called up from the practice squad to replace him. To make room, the team parted with Guyton. Jenkins...

Dallas 38, Philadelphia 23: It Must Be November

Felix Jones found the end zone for the third time in 2012. Tony Romo has been the starting quarterback in Dallas during six of the last seven months of November (he was injured in 2010). Heading into Sunday’s game at Philadelphia, Romo had a record of 19-4 during those November games. Romo played a good part of his 24th November game on his back, thanks to an offensive line that...

Roger Staubach believes Jerry Jones needs to give up some of his duties

Dallas Cowboys great Roger Staubach believes owner Jerry Jones needs to delegate his role as general manager. “Jerry is trying real hard,” Staubach told ESPN Radio’s Mike & Mike on Friday.. “He goes back to the old days when they won three Super Bowls. I think the formula is he’s got to find a medium ground and delegate more authority.” Jones already made it clear...

Eagles-Cowboys Who Will End the Others Season?

Dallas leads the regular season all-time series 56–44.  But when the Cowboys and Eagles play all bets are off.  No team is safe ever. The Cowboys and Eagles play twice in the next 4 weeks.  What happens in four weeks most likely will not mean a thing for the team that loses this week.  Whichever team falls to 3-6 will have their season officially over. So which team will get...

Chris Ivory's elusive 56 yard touchdown

Early in today’s matchup between the unbeaten Atlanta Falcons and the New Orleans Saints, New Orleans running back Chris Ivory took off on a 56 yard touchdown run. Ivory was able to elude not only the defenders but the sideline and cut back across the field, making the run roughly 80 yards all told. Article found on: Cosby Sweaters

Cowboys VP Stephen Jones says team is going in a good direction

One of the problems with the Cowboys is that they are like alcoholic who continuously denies they have a problem, so they can never get the proper help. Take these comments from Jerry Jones’ son Stephen Jones for example via the Cowboys Corner. Is Jason Garrett coaching for his future? “I won’t even comment on that. Period. That’s ridiculous,” Jones said. What...

Win over Eagles should toughen up Cowboys

On the surface, all the Cowboys' 38-23 win Sunday proves is that they are better than the freefalling Eagles. The Cowboys still hurt themselves with mistakes and penalties and sometimes just dumb football. But they did enough things right to win, and not by just a little. It wasn't just about surviving the woeful Eagles, it was about surviving an entire week of turmoil...

Saints hand Falcons first loss, 31-27

Drew Brees and the New Orleans Saints no longer sound like a team in denial when they discuss their refusal to give up on this most unusual of seasons. Perhaps all was not lost when they followed up a scandal-plagued offseason with an 0-4 start. Certainly, the Superdome was packed with reveling believers after tight end Jimmy Graham turned in a career performance and his teammates...

Fantasy Football Week 10 Preview: Cowboys at Eagles

Dallas: Label this one the “All Desperation Bowl”, as the Cowboys and Eagles both come off disappointing losses, none more so than the Cowboys' 19-13 loss to the Falcons in Week 9. The Cowboys had their chances, but the Falcons did just enough to win the game and leave Dallas holding the bag… again. Tony Romo simply could not get his team moving enough to score the points...
