Boys Have Alot to Hang Their Hats On

As I enjoyed my Monday off thanks to one of the most influential figures in American history, I watched highlights of every game the Cowboys played this year in an attempt to help my still heavy heart.  As it turns out, reflecting on our successful season was just what the doctor ordered.  Here’s a list of […]

Cowboys Look to Quiet Critics

It’s finally here.  The day Cowboys fans everywhere have been waiting for.  The day the Cowboys prove all the critics wrong yet again and beat the Giants for the third time this season.  The critics have been on the prowl the last couple weeks.  In fact, I’d venture to say they stepped their game up […]

ESPN Doing it’s Best to Rain on Dallas’ 12-2 Parade

With the Christmas season upon us, I feel it’s only fitting for me to give a special holiday shoutout to my favorite sports network, ESPN.    Now, most of you know that I’m a huge supporter of ESPN.  Let’s be real.  These people don’t care that Dallas has run away with their division.  They don’t care that Dallas has […]

Keyshawn Needs to Quickly Learn His Place

I am truly at a loss for words when I see what I saw on NFL Live this afternoon.  I’m sure we’ve all seen it already.  Keyshawn Johnson, the former "accomplished" NFL receiver, took unjustified shots at Terrell Owens for some extremely general comments he made about Bill Parcells.  After being blindsided by Keyshawn’s ridiculous […]

Ellis Quietly Having Monstrous Year

If anyone would have told me that Greg Ellis, entering week 14, would be leading the team with 10.5 sacks, ahead of sack master Demarcus Ware, I would have looked at you like you shot my mother. The Greg Ellis that suffered a season-ending ruptured Achilles the year before?  The Greg Ellis that stirred up […]

Boys Look Sharp After One Week Hiatus

The first play of the game was a good summary for the night the Dallas Cowboys had at Lincoln Financial Field.  Marcus Spears put a lick on Donovan McNabb, causing him to fumble, which was recovered by Bradie James.  Julius Jones strolled into the endzone but a few plays later, setting the tone for the night.  The storyline of the […]

Boys Make Statement on Monday Night’s Center Stage

I think I speak for legions of Cowboys fans when I say, what a statement the Boys made in front of a nationally televised audience on Monday Night.  As my brother and I sat arms-length from the television with our hands firmly folded watching Tony Romo engineer the game-winning field goal drive, there was no doubt in my mind that my […]

Offense Takes Center Stage in Big D

As we enter week 3 of the 2007-2008 NFL season, one thing has caught the attention of Cowboys fans in the last two weeks.  The Boy’s high powered offense.  Now everybody knows that Wade Phillips is a defensive genius, but Big Wade has certainly brought a potent offense to Dallas, one they have been lacking since the […]

Big Things Expected From Boys in Season Opener

Dallas Cowboys football 2007 is all but here.  What better way for America’s Team to start their ’07 campaign than on Sunday Night Primetime against their hated rivals, the Giants?  Being from the Northern half of Indiana, trash talk was applenty on Friday morning, what with the defending champion Colts pulling out all the stops […]

Players Making Bids for Roster Spots

With one preseason game under their belts, the Cowboys are now preparing for the Denver Broncos on Saturday night, who have already strolled into Dallas and practiced with the Cowboys in the blistering Texas heat.  Here’s a couple players to keep and eye and ear out for that played well against the Colts.   Leonard […]

T.O. Staying Under the Radar in ’07

As we near the end of Training Camp 2007, a new wind has apparently blown in along with new head coach Wade Phillips.  Not a peep out of T.O.  That’s right, Terrell Eldorado Owens, has been virtually unheard from this off-season.  Whatever is ESPN to do without an over-exaggerated story about T.O. stirring up a Texas […]

Position Battles to Turn Up the Heat in Alamodome

With training camp underway in the confines of the Alamodome in the heart of San Antonio, here are three position battles to keep an eye on as training camp heats up. 1.  Greg Ellis vs. Anthony Spencer, Outside Linebacker This will definitely be the most intriguing and heated battle to watch going into training camp.  With Greg […]
