Roger Staubach thinks Johnny Manziel has “Russell Wilson-type talent”

As many of you know by now, Cleveland Browns QB Johnny Manziel has been released from rehab. Now the focus will be on whether or not Manziel will get serious about playing football. Even before Manziel declared for the NFL Draft, many were skeptical if his skills would translate to the NFL. To this day, there are many(including me) who don’t think Manziel will amount to anything...

Former Dallas Cowboys Great Roger Staubach Thinks Johnny Manziel Has Russell Wilson-Type Talent

Johnny Manziel was one of the most electrifying college quarterbacks in recent years. With him behind center the Texas A&M Aggies were never out of a football game. So far his NFL career has been less than spectacular. After a disastrous showing when he was given the chance to play last season there are not too many that are still in his corner.He does, however, have one legend...

How JR Ewing made the Dallas Cowboys, “America’s Team”

The great debate of who is America’s team keeps popping up as the Green Bay Packers are laying claim to the title.  Many fans think that it was a show that started the name of “America’s Team” for Dallas.  In my opinion, they are partially right. In the 1978 highlight reel by NFL Films, the narrator bellowed out, “They appear on television so often that their faces are...

5 Most Underrated Prospects In The 2015 Draft

This year, the NFL Draft will be held in Chicago, Illinois for the first time since 1964. That does not change the fact that several players will get drafted too low, too high, for the wrong reasons, etc. More specifically, underrated prospects make for some of the best steals in draft history. Tom Brady (6th round), Joe Montana (3rd) and Roger Staubach (10th) are all examples of...

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...

Today marks a day of remembrance for all Dallas Cowboy fans, as today marks the fifteenth anniversary of the passing of “the man that wears the funny hat”,  as legendary quarterback Roger Staubach stated during his retirement speech in March 1980.

“Super” Reasons Eagles Need a First Round QB

Being that it’s Super Bowl week and that the Eagles’ biggest topic of discussion is about the QB position, I thought this would be a good time to look at some stats and history as it relates to quarterbacks and the Big Game. Please note that this article is not about the Eagles drafting Marcus Mariota in particular as much as it’s about them taking the plunge on a first-round...

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...

Dallas Cowboys legend Drew Pearson and 39 years of Hail Mary

This past weekend, I spent some time with my friends at Houston DC Nation as they hosted Dallas Cowboy legendary wide receiver Drew Pearson who made his way to the Houston area and signed autographs from Bombshells Restaurant and Bar. Pearson played for the Cowboys from 1973 to 1984.  He was best known for the “Hail Mary”, a 50-yard bomb to Pearson from Roger Staubach.  Staubach...

Don’t Use 12 Against McCarthy

I happen to think that Mike McCarthy is a very good coach, but I’ll listen to people who believe otherwise – unless they use Aaron Rodgers to support their opinion. The “he only wins because he has a great quarterback” argument is not only weak, it’s totally unfair. How many extremely successful coaches didn’t have an outstanding signal caller?
