No More Tuna Bashing

As of about two hours ago, it is no longer proper to criticize Bill Parcells, who has announced his retirement. After four seasons, the Bill Parcells era here in Dallas is over. The Cowboys’ head coach for the last four years officially announced his resignation here Monday morning. “I am retiring from coaching football. I […]

Is It Treasonous to Adopt a Team?

Just an open question to the Cowboys faithful: Is it an act of treason not only to root for another team but also to get emotionally behind them? If it is, my only saving grace is that due to some Patriots fans on the official Cowboys message board (e.g., here), I really wanted to see […]

A Fine Kickholder Picture

I’ve been using the same boring avatar (below) all season, but thanks to The Botch by Tony Romo, I get to use a new one (see further below). Thanks also to my mother for sending this, which is rather ironic because she much preferred my role as a kickholder to other roles due to her […]

This is what Cowboys blogging on this venue has become these days… So I found some Cowboys videos […]

MOP Award for 1965: Pete Gent

In 1964, the Dallas Cowboys signed a free agent named Pete Gent, a basketball player from Michigan State. This is what Peter Golenbeck wrote about Gent in Landry’s Boys: An Oral History of a Team and an Era: When Gent arrived at camp, Tom Landry had little use for him. However, the Cowboys offensive coordinator, […]

Lessons from This Weekend?

Some of this is just conjecture on my part, but I think we might have learned something from each of the games this weekend: (1) Indianapolis 15, Baltimore 6: We learned that it was probably good that the Colts defense wasn’t playing this well when the Cowboys faced them.
