Dear Jerry: We Needn’t Copy Buffalo Move for Move

We have heard for three years how Julius Jones should be the next in line in the great Dallas backs. Aside from the occasional flash, though, it doesn’t look as if that will happen. As you may have read, Dallas will reportedly consider trading Jones for the right price. The Cowboys aren’t exactly shopping Julius […]

MOP Award for 1967: Ron East

The choice for the MOP Award for 1967 was a tough one. Just too many well-known players and too few obscure ones that qualify. And I have to admit that the retrospective winner– defensive tackle/end Ron East– was simply obscure but not otherwise noteworthy. Congratulations retrospectively, nevertheless.

Historic Draft: 1966

Grade: B- The 1966 draft was a mild success due to the selection of guard John Niland and running back Walt Garrison. Moreover, the Cowboys traded their fourth round selection to the Baltimore Colts for guard Ralph Neely. Otherwise, however, the 1966 draft saw the drafting of fourteen players who did not play a down […]

Remember the Last Playoff Win?

And the opposing quarterback was Brad Johnson. Well, we will have a reunion, as the Cowboys signed the 38-year-old quarterback on Monday. […]

Focusing on Longhorn Linemen

ESPN has reported that the Cowboys have reached a deal with free agent lineman Leonard Davis. It will be interesting what this does with the Cowboys’ focus in the draft, given that UT guard/tackle Justin Blalock is an early favorite. My own opinion, which counts for nothing: take Blalock, giving the line two versatile players […]
