About Matt Cordon

He joins Tom Landry, Tex Schramm, Roger Staubach, Bob Lilly, Tony Dorsett, Mel Renfro, Randy White, Rayfield Wright, and Troy Aikman in Canton.

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 […]

Would “The Glare” Help as Head Coach?

Just read about yet another interviewee as head coach of the Cowboys. The Cowboys have confirmed that Mike Singletary, Hall of Fame linebacker and 49ers assistant head coach the past two years, will interview for the Cowboys’ vacant head coaching job Tuesday. Singletary, of course, played at Baylor and was a member of the Chicago […]

Should Aikman Get His Way?

I seem to remember the talk in 1997 was that Troy Aikman openly campaigned for Norv Turner to be hired as head coach once Barry Switzer was fired. The Cowboys instead hired Chan Gailey, and Aikman was largely responsible for Gailey’s failure in Dallas (I don’t think I’ll get into a debate about that, but […]

Defining Parcells’ Ultimate Failure

This debate may not end any time soon, no matter who Dallas hires: was the Bill Parcells era a failure? You can glance at my recent posts to discover that I think it was, but I think it was a failure not because he did not win a Super Bowl but rather because the team’s […]

Can the Bears Learn from the Cowboys?

This is all nothing but coincidence, but I can’t help but to think of the ironies of the playoff matchups this season when it comes to the Cowboys: Dallas lost to Philadelphia by 14 and by 16. Dallas lost to the Giants by 14, then beat the Giants by 3. Dallas lost to New Orleans […]
