Gregg Popovich: Reality TV Star?

Admit it. There's a part of you that tunes into Spurs games just to watch the Gregg Popovich interviews. Pop doesn't take it easy on any reporters, especially during a national-televised game.

Dez Bryant: I think DeMarco Murray can get to 2,000 yards

DeMarco Murray isn't likely to say much about his historic start to the season this year, so his teammate did it for him. With 128 yards against the Giants last weekend, Murray achieved 100 rushing yards in his seventh-straight game -- breaking a record Jim Brown set in 1958. While Murray is prone to shy away from the spotlight, his high-flying teammate on the Dallas offense...

Cowboys' Crawford ready to break out of sack slump

IRVING, Texas -- One of the biggest surprises of the season has been the solid play of the Dallas Cowboys' defense. Even more surprising is that the Cowboys are doing it without sacking the quarterback. Seven games into the seven, the Cowboys have just seven sacks. The team sack leader is tackle Henry Melton with 1.5. "A lot of surprise," defensive end Tyrone Crawford...

Jason Hatcher: Redskins hate Cowboys way more than they hate us

Asked if he'd been keeping up with the Cowboys' success this season, Jason Hatcher pointed out the obvious. "Yeah, it's all over the place -- America's Team, right?' he said.

History On Cowboys' Side After Hot Start To Season

This goes against the very fiber of Jason Garrett's "Process"-oriented mantra. You aren't going to find a Cowboys player or coach who is willing to look past Wednesday's film study, let alone next week's game against Washington - and certainly not nine more games this season. That said, we're entering rare territory to this point in the Cowboys'...

Olesiak next man up for Stars

FRISCO, Texas - Much is expected from Jamie Oleksiak, but such is one's lot in life when you're a first-round pick in the NHL Draft like the hulking young defenseman was for the Dallas Stars in 2011, when he was taken 14th overall. Oleksiak has been in the NHL several times before, but this is the first time that the young d-man known as the "Big Rig" has started...

Cowboys don't fall for Giants' trap, improve to 6-1

ARLINGTON, Texas – It had all the makings of a trap game. The Cowboys were rolling at 5-1, the Giants were reeling after getting embarrassed the week be-fore. Good NFL teams lose games like this all the time. It happens every weekend in the NFL, especially when divisional rivals meet. Even when one of the rivals is as injury-riddled as the Giants. It didn't help that professional...

But by the time the final horn sounded with 2:11 left in overtime, Dallas had been outscored 4-1 the final 22:11 and lost 6-5 thanks...

Banister brings a new presence to the Rangers

Try being the last guy that Alex Banister brought home to meet her father Jeff. The meeting included a handshake with a purpose. Banister said he just wanted the young man to know how things stood with him.
