Is it over for Romo, Garrett or Both?

“Na Na Na Na, Na Na Na Na, Hey Hey Hey Goodbye”… It’s been almost 18 years since the Cowboys won a Super Bowl. Yes those were the days back when Cowboys’ fans actually had something to brag about.

Another Cowboys debacle against Falcons

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...

Contract Discussions Between Tony Romo & Cowboys Put On Hold

Calvin Watkins of ESPN Dallas reports that Tony Romo made the decision to table talks regarding a contract extension so that he ”concentrate on the season.” Watkins adds that Dallas still wants to re-sign him long-term. This coincides with Stephen Jones’ remarks that he hopes Romo finishes out his career as Cowboy.

Jimmy Johnson rips Jerry Jones for GM comments

Former Dallas Cowboys coach Jimmy Johnson says Cowboys owner Jerry Jones takes way to much credit as being the general manager during the team's Super Bowl years in the 1990s. "That is completely a bunch of crock," said Johnson on the Dan Patrick Show Wednesday. "Jerry started putting all those titles on himself after I left. He didn't call himself general...

Monday Musings: Doug Martin’s heroic effort, Peterson’s big day for naught, another Dallas disappointment; and other notes from week 9

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...

2012 NFL Midseason Report Card: Dallas Cowboys

What can you say about the 2012 Dallas Cowboys at the midseason point? Dallas spent money to improve the defense last offseason, which has made them a better team. Unfortunately, the Cowboys remain a disappointing 3-5 in the NFC East and battling just to get to .500, let alone for a spot in the 2012 NFL Playoffs. Simply put, it has been mostly gloom and doom in the Big D once again...

The Worst of Week Nine Vol.VI

Not pictured but should be: Grumpy and Jeff In case you didn't read any comments from Friday (HOW COULD YOU!), you missed a truly terrible performance from our very own Grumpy.  He was crying about how his precious Steelers had to alter their game day routines and fly into New Jersey on Sunday morning since their hotel was filled with people actually effected by Hurricane Sandy...
