Let’s Hope He’s No Bum… Or Perhaps That He Is?

Word on the street this morning is that the Cowboys will announce Wade Phillips as the new head coach. Phillips has compiled an overall record of 48-39 with the Broncos and Bills, along with interim jobs at New Orleans and Atlanta. The 60-year-old is, of course, the son of Bum Phillips, who guided the Houston […]

Clip: Mr. Romo at the Super Bowl

Found this comforting clip of a Tony Romo interview in Miami. I thought for a moment that he had lost his touch in referring generally to the second person, but alas, he came through with, “Sometimes you can’t really learn things until you go through them and experience them….” Please feel free to insert a […]

More Talent Than We Knew? Probably Not.

We learned today that Cowboys center Andre Gurode was named to the Pro Bowl, replacing Olin Kreutz of the Chicago Bears. That means that seven members of a 9-7 Cowboys team are going to Hawaii. Gurode is one of four players making his first Pro Bowl appearance, along with Tony Romo, Mat McBriar and DeMarcus […]

Cowboys’ All-Time Record vs. Eventual Super Bowl Winners

Mickey Spagnola reminded us today that the Cowboys were the first team to beat the Super Bowl Champion Indianapolis Colts this season. This marks the first time in 10 seasons that the Cowboys have defeated the eventual Super Bowl champion and led me to wonder what the Cowboys all-time record in this obscure category might […]

Know Your Bossier-Shreveport Battlewings?

It’s been a couple of weeks since the highly anticipated launch of Know Your Dallas Desperados site (eight visitors a day! a total of 141 visitors since launch! I am personally 120 of those visitors!). And today I received something of a gift: a grand idea for an AF2 blog, Know Your Bossier-Shreveport Battlewings! Why? […]

Should We Approach Gary Fencik?

So now that Jerry is extending the coaching search to last until after the Super Bowl, I offer these very random thoughts about the combination of geniuses and the former members of the 1985 Chicago Bears. (a) We didn’t have the luck for which we had hoped (note I didn’t say failure this time) with […]

Surprisingly High Level of Support for Singletary

I was going to lay off this subject, but I was a little bit surprised by the results of a poll on the Dallas Cowboys Fan Zone regarding who should be head coach. After 92 votes in what I would imagine is not a proper sampling, here are the results: Mike Singletary: 51.1% Norv Turner: […]

Tony Romo Vids: The Good and the Botched

As a Baylor employee, I should be far more excited that Mike Singletary is interviewing with the Cowboys. But other than the speculation, I’ll wait for commentary until after I hear an announcement. Here is the story from the official site. Oops. I just said I was a Baylor employee. Next thing you know, I’ll […]

When Journalists Become Bored

I have apparently agreed one time too many with Jean-Jacques Taylor of the Dallas Morning News, for today I read his piece about how Jerry Jones should be coach three times before realizing that there may not be a punch line. There’s just no good way to spin Norv Turner’s 58-82-1 coaching record. None of […]
