Jerry Jones says Michael Sam has “a long way to go”

AP Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones was blunt and to the point when speaking about practice squad member Michael Sam on Friday. Jones compared the 2014 seventh-round pick of the St. Louis Rams favorably to players like Charles Haley and Terrell Suggs but insisted that Sam had a way to go. “He’s a pass-rusher,” Jones said Friday on 105.3 The Fan. “He has a lot to go when he...

Predicting the 2015 Pro Football Hall of Fame Class

With the 2014 Pro Football Hall of Fame class just recently inducted into Canton, attention turns to the start of the 2014 season. Despite the urge to live in the moment, it makes sense to look to the past and check in one some of the greats who are primary reasons the NFL is what it is today.  While there are a ton of deserving candidates to find themselves on the podium in Canton...

’92 Cowboys defense weighs in on current defense

LONGVIEW, Texas – The Dallas Cowboys defense finished dead last in total yards and near the bottom in points surrendered. The devastation was so horrid that even backup quarterbacks were able to have career games against the Cowboys defense.

The 49ers: Comparatively Speaking

Getty Images To start with, I want to say that I’ve been a 49ers fan since “The Catch”. I was a callow youth then, just in middle school, but I fell in love with the team. I was living in Los Angeles at the time and watched that game with my Dad and couple of other people at someone’s house. I wasn’t that knowledgeable about the 49ers, but I knew the Cowboys roster up and...

Will McClay will be leaned on heavily to rebuild defensive line

With DeMarcus Ware gone, and Jason Hatcher likely signing elsewhere, the Cowboys defensive line is in shambles and very reminiscent of the early 2000′s. In reality the Cowboys took years to fill the void of Charles Haley and Tony Tolbert. As fans we were able to ride with Ware from 2005, but before Ware arrived the defensive line was full of busts, bad free agent signings, and...

Photo Trivia: Pro Football Hall of Fame All-Decade Team, 1960s

A Dallas player not named Bob Lilly made the Hall of Fame’s all-decade team for the 1960s. The Dallas Cowboys had four solid seasons to close out the 1960s. However, the team did not have the star power that franchises such as Green Bay and Baltimore (Colts) had. Only two players who played for the Cowboys during the 1960s appeared on the Pro Football Hall of Fame All-Decade team...

Sack Artists in Cowboys History

With the need for the Dallas Cowboys to execute substantial upgrades to their defensive line in the offseason, I thought it might be fun to take a look at the Cowboys who have the most sacks in their NFL career. It’s important to note that the NFL did not recognize the quarterback sack as an official statistic until 1982, but the Cowboys maintain their own sack records prior to...

Foreign territory for the modern Dallas Cowboys. The San Francisco 49ers are preparing for their third consecutive appearance in the NFC Championship Game.
