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 and Baltimore, either the Dallas Cowboys or the Washington Redskins will get the final playoff berth and a home game in the first round of the NFL postseason. The preseason favorite, whether Giants fans want to admit it or not, was the Dallas Cowboys. However, the Cowboys get preseason hype every year, regardless of how good or bad the team looks. For some reason, that is the pressure that is on any Cowboys team since their booming success in the early 90′s. Jerry Jones isn’t afraid to spend money, take a chance of questionable character guys and certainly not scared to say what he thinks about the team. In a s...

Tony Romo ready to make a new reputation for himself as the Dallas Cowboys march towards the playoffs

Let's start with the obvious: when these Dallas and Washington teams met on Thanksgiving, the Cowboys were undermanned on offense. They had fill-ins working on the offensive line, lost Miles Austin early and were without DeMarco Murray.

Former Cowboy Drew Pearson says team must rough up RG3, penalties be damned

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. Dallas needs a big win against the 'Skins to win the NFC East, but let's be realistic. Purposely drawing penalties is never a good idea. "We need to let him know that it...

Dez does Dallas: The emergence of Dez Bryant and the Dallas Cowboys

Jerry Jones gave Dez Bryant the number 88 when he drafted him. It is the same number worn by Hall of Famer Michael Irvin and should-be Hall of Famer (and recent Ring of Honor inductee) Drew Pearson. To old Cowboy fans like me, it is a pretty special number in Cowboys lore. On April 23, 2010, ESPN.com quoted Jones giving his reason for giving Dez the hallowed 88: “I think that Dez...

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.
