Dallas Cowboys: Biggest Draft Day Regret In Franchise History

  The most haunting draft mistake in franchise history was in 2005 when the Dallas Cowboys chose Marcus Spears while Aaron Rodgers was still available.  He was selected 4 picks later.  The Cowboys decided to bet on an over the hill Drew Bledsoe at QB instead and draft defense.  Aaron Rodgers has only gone on to become one of the best QBs in the league and a future Hall of Famer...

There is only one HOFer to have come out of the sixth round of the NFL draft. That's far less than even the seventh round. Let's just say that he heads this list. His name is Jack Christiansen from 1951. He played for the Detroit Lions for eight seasons and won three championships with them and earned five Pro-Bowl nods. Jack collected 46 INTs, three of them pick-sixes.And here is...

Is history repeating itself for the Dallas Cowboys?

I think I’ve finally gotten over “The Catch”, and I’m not talking about Dwight Clark’s touchdown catch in the 1982 NFC Championship game between my Dallas Cowboys and the 49er’s. The Clark catch symbolized the demise of the Cowboys great times of the 60’s and 70’s but this “Catch” will be the rise of a new Cowboys dominance. I truly believe our time has started...

Seattle Seahawks: Biggest Draft Day Regret In Franchise History

This is the first time I can honest say a team made a mistake by not selecting Mark Brunell in the 1993 NFL Draft.The Seattle Seahawks made that mistake, taking Rick Mirer second overall that year, one spot behind Drew Bledsoe and thought it had changed its fortunes for the better and the future. The team that had ridden the shoulders of Jim Zorn and then Dave Krieg needed a new...

Drew Bledsoe got slammed to the ground by Mo Lewis. Drew Bledsoe had internal bleeding and would miss several weeks. Tom Brady entered the game for New England. Tom Brady still hasn’t left...

Five Super Bowl Week controversies that made no difference in the game

With less than a week to go before Super Bowl XLIX in Glendale, Ariz., surely we must all be tired of talking about the big game — wait, that can't be right because we've hardly discussed the game at all. Instead, it's been nothing but balls and bladders and deflation and pressure. Technically, this is about football, but it also definitely not football. There's been little talk...

Bledsoe not happy about other QBs trashing Brady

New England Patriots’ quarterback Tom Brady doesn’t have much support out there among former NFL quarterbacks when it comes to accusations that he had involvement in deflating the footballs used in the conference championship game.

Appearances can be deceiving, former NFL quarterback Drew Bledsoe warns. The retired signal-caller, who played under both Belichick and Carroll with the New England...

Photo: Tom Brady's AFC East championship shirt proves he's a boss

The Patriots have won the AFC East so many times with Tom Brady as their quarterback they have needed to come up with shirts that don't just say "division champs" anymore. After winning their sixth straight division title on Sunday, Brady had this bad boy on in the locker room: It would have been cooler if owner Robert Kraft had one on, too, but that doesn't take away from Brady...

VINE: Tom Brady’s Electric 17-Yard Run Against Dolphins

A lot of commentary this morning about Tom Brady’s 17-yard first down run last night is comical. From Julian Edelman to Drew Bledsoe (who was in attendance yesterday), people are joking about how slow Brady looked. For a 37-year old quarterback who has never been particularly mobile, it’s of course, all in good fun. Aside from the good natured rubs though, the run and especially...

Dolphins kicker Pete Stoyanovich lines up for a game-winning 41-yard field goal, down 14-13 and just a few seconds on the clock. The Cowboys block the kick. The ball...
