This Mock Draft Business…and Ignorance

This has been my first offseason not only of blogging about the Cowboys but also of paying more than a bit of attention to the mock drafts. And there was good reason why there was no reason at all to pay attention to the mock drafts– the best I can figure, it is about as […]

I Agree With Keyshawn?

If you look along the right-hand column, you will see an RSS feed that includes Cowboys headlines from SportsSpyder (that may be how you got here in the first place…). I noticed today this headline: “Johnson says ‘Boys need WR” Well, I thought, Jimmy agrees with me! Except that the Johnson in the article is […]

Best and Worst Draft Picks

Fox ran an interesting piece about the best and worst picks in team history. The picks about the Cowboys weren’t bad, though I don’t agree 100%. Here is the entry: Best overall pick: RB Emmitt Smith, Round 1, Pick 17, 1990 It’s really all relative as to which member of the Big 3 you think […]

Historic Draft: 1968

Grade: C- I’m nearing the end of the first decade of Cowboys drafts, which fortunately means that we are getting closer to that 1975 draft.

Although I am beginning to accept the thought of a defensive back, I still would like to see a change in direction with the drafting of an offensive skill player. Here is the blurb on […]

Belated Notes on Cowboys Schedule, Bledsoe

Very strangely, my original version of this post vanished after I posted it last evening. At any rate, the Cowboys have what looks to be a pretty forgiving schedule, except that the late season games look as troublesome as those from last year. Here is a piece by Todd Archer analyzing the schedule: Sept. 9: […]

New Name in the Mock Drafts: Chris Houston

After noting twice (here and here) that Texas guard/tackle Justin Blalock was the mock draft frontrunner, I am now seeing less and less of him. Some have him going late in the first round, while others have him dropping to the second. I have also pointed out that a number of mock drafts are now […]

Trivia: The Very Early Years

These questions should be a little bit more difficult than those that I posted on Wednesday. These focus on the very early years of the Cowboys, mostly before the team had been formed. 1. In 1952, Texas textile mogul Giles Miller moved which NFL team to Dallas to become the original Dallas Texans? 2. Original […]

Trivia: Name That Year, 1960s Edition

Little did either of you who care for this blog know that I originally intended for it to be a bastion of trivia questions about the Dallas Cowboys (hence the name of the site). So due to a lack of daily interest on my part about who the Cowboys might draft as of rightthismoment, what […]
