About Matt Cordon

Blogging impatiently about the Cowboys since 2006. Being a fan since 1977 hasn't required quite as much patience.

Video: Defensive Highlights from 2006

I found this video clip showing highlights of the Cowboys’ defense in 2006. It was made by the guys at Cowboys Vids. Excellent stuff. Tweet

Historic Draft: 1969

Grade: D This is grade deflation at its finest. But since I gave the 1967 draft— the one that produced a Hall-of-Famer in Rayfield Wright– a C-, I have to adjust the 1969 draft a step downward. The highlight of the 1969 draft was the selection of Calvin Hill from Yale. The Cowboys had just […]

Dear Tony: Women Weaken Legs!

Thanks to the Blue and Silver, I saw pictures of Tony Romo with Carrie Underwood. Here is one of them: So somewhere after “Damn, she’s fine,” we as Cowboys fans also have to remember Mickey’s instruction to Rocky: “Women weaken legs!” And Adrian most certainly looked nothing like Carrie Underwood. This spells trouble. Tweet

Ah Ha! So THAT Is Who We Drafted at Receiver!

It is not very surprising, but Dallas plans to use fourth-round pick Isaiah Stanback as a receiver rather than a quarterback. The Blue and Silver has a thread about him, and the general sentiment there is that Dallas still should have tried to jump up and take Meachum or Jarrett. This is from the Fort […]

7th Round, Last Pick: CB Alan Ball

Dallas certainly went for pairs this year. Anthony Spencer to pair up with DeMarcus Ware. A pair of offensive tackles. A kicker to pair up with Martin Gramatica. And in the seventh round: a pair of corners, now that the Cowboys have taken Illinois corner Alan Ball. [And for the totally off-topic– Here’s a trivia […]

7th Round: CB Courtney Brown (Maybe a Steal Here?)

The Cowboys first seventh-round pick may be worth watching. Dallas took Cal.-Poly. cornerback Courtney Brown, who has been rising on several of the mock draft boards. This is from Peter Scrager: Not to be confused with the former Cleveland top overall pick with the same name, Brown is a cornerback with blazing speed. Though he […]

6th Round, Part Dud: FB Deon Anderson

The choice of a kicker earlier in the sixth round makes some sense, given that I’m not sure how many people are completely sold on Martin Gramatica. But I’m not sure I understand this one at all– Dallas used its other sixth round pick on Connecticut fullback Deon Anderson. This comes shortly after Dallas resigned […]

6th Round: Still No WR, but We’ve Got a Kicker!

The Cowboys used their first sixth-round pick to take kicker Nick Folk of Arizona. I know that he won’t wear #12 with the Cowboys, but otherwise, I’m not familiar with him. UPDATE: Michael David Smith from footballoutsiders.com says that he thinks Folk was a quality pick and will take over the kicking duties next year. […]

4th Round, Part 2: World B… er… OT Doug Free

Wrong sport. Sorry. Dallas used its second fourth-round pick to take tackle Doug Free of Northern Illinois, which has set up something of a shrine page for him here. This could turn out to be a steal: first- or second-round talent who was injured at the beginning of his senior season. He apparently stood out […]
