ESPN Mock Draft: Darrelle Revis to Dallas?

Although I still think that Dallas should look to the offensive side of the ball rather than the secondary, ESPN’s mock draft suggested that the Cowboys take Pitt’s Darrelle Revis. He certainly has flash and appears to be the real deal from what I’ve read and seen. Here is more from ESPN: Revis played in […]

Off-Season Program Begins Monday

Not that there will be much fodder for blogging, but the Cowboys’ off-season program officially begins tomorrow. The Dallas Morning News has a couple of pieces on this. First, Todd Archer notes that Wade Phillips will expect participation just as Bill Parcells did. When Wade Phillips was named the Cowboys’ head coach Feb. 8, he […]

Historic Draft: 1967

Grade: C- This draft was as bad as the 1961 draft, which produced Bob Lilly but only produced Bob Lilly. A draft that produces a member of the Hall of Fame certainly couldn’t earn a D, but it can’t be much better than that when it produces nothing else. In 1967, the NFL and AFL […]

Dallas Secondary: One Big Wad of Cash

Tom Orsborn ran a piece yesterday about how the Cowboys could be held hostage at the free safety position. The most interesting part of this was Jerry Jones’ take on it: At various times during the Bill Parcells era, the old coach complained the team was being “held hostage” by the center and cornerback positions.

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. [Update: See the comments– a poster named Born […]
