The Triplets are a Dallas Cowboy tradition

The Dallas Cowboys have always won by having some triplets around.  They are a tradition in Dallas Cowboy lore.  The triplets have been around since the 1970’s.  They were not just called that back then, they went by Roger, Tony, and Hail Mary. Roger Staubach, Tony Dorsett, and Drew Pearson could have been easily tagged as the original “Triplets”.  The only knock against...

After watching Russell Wilson direct the most improbable comeback in recent memory, New England Patriots coach Bill Belichick is now comparing his Super Bowl foe to former Cowboys great, Roger Staubach. On Tuesday’s conference call, Belichick told reporters that Wilson’s Houdini-like escapability is Staubach all the way. “I can’t really put it into words. Wilson’s just...

Seattle has percentages in their favor for back to back titles

In the previous 48 Super Bowls, the most ill advised pass was made by Washington Redskin's QB Joe Theismann in Super Bowl XVIII 12 seconds before halftime. Head coach Joe Gibbs took the blame for the screen pass play intended for RB Joe Washington. The Redskins were reigning Super Bowl champs.

Gov. Christie On Dez Overturned Catch: “I Don’t Get It”

New Jersey Governor Chris Christie’s love affair with the Dallas Cowboys is over–at least for this season.

NJ Gov. Chris Christie is the first fan of Dallas

NEWARK, N.J. (AP) Chris Christie loves the Dallas Cowboys. Not only is he not ashamed of it, he wants you to know it. Tossing any risks of political offense aside, the potential Republican candidate for president doesn't bother to cheer for any of the teams that would make more sense for the governor of New Jersey. No, he's an over-the-top, awkward-hugging, lucky-sweater-wearing...

Staubach: Manziel and I would be 'very similar' on the field

Yankeetorial: Why baseball needs A-Rod

Last Sunday, my favorite football team, the Giants, did not play. They were busy practicing to crap the bed on Monday night. Normally, without a Giants game, I'd spend Sunday afternoon like everybody else in Syracuse - chopping off a frostbitten finger, or freeing plows from snow drifts. But last week, I had a fallback: The Dallas Cowboys. I hate the Cowboys....
