This is a strange post, I know, but I just noticed that the Dallas Morning News’ CowboysPlus site appears to be no more. After charging for the site for several years, it has been free for a number of months. Now most of the information has been incorporated into the main site. Have to say this is disappointing, given that some of the classic information does not appear to be there any longer.
Anyway, Todd Archer has had some good pieces analyzing the roster. Here they are:
Unless you have shut off all media access in the past year, you know that Tony Romo has had no trouble staying in the news. We also continue to see our favorites Roger Staubach and Troy Aikman pop up in headlines from time to time. If only Danny White and Don Meredith could do something noteworthy, we could have an entire blog focusing only on Cowboy quarterbacks.
We’ll start with Romo, who is partially the subject of the cover of Country Weekly, which features a certain blonde. The DMN Cowboys blog wonders if there may be a jinx involved:

I promise this will be the last post of the day about NFL quarterbacks on random magazine covers.
Roger Staubach, the former Dallas Cowboys quarterback, will step down as chief executive and become executive chairman of the real estate consulting firm he built after his football career ended.
The Staubach Company announced the change Tuesday, along with what it called a long-planned recapitalization of the company, which is expected to be completed by June 30.
Mr. Staubach, 65, has held the titles of chairman and chief executive of the company, which is based in Dallas. He said he would continue to work full time. Gregory P. O’Brien, president for the company’s Northeast region, will become chief executive.
The Staubach Company advises companies on office, industrial and retail real estate.
Here is a quote from a pretty good piece today by the Fort Worth Star-Telegram about Wade Phillips’ approach now that he has reached 60. It begins with a quote from his father, Bum. “Every now and then, Wade gets hard-headed,” Bum said. “But that’s OK — he’s like me that way. Sooner or later, […]
Due to the fact that I am grading a total of 96 papers over the next few weeks . . . and have to finish a book by the end of the month . . . and have two kids bored out of their minds because they are out of school . . . and […]
I didn’t really intend for this week’s posts to consist entirely of videos, but it is too easy to go in this route. In the past couple of days, there have been several Tony Romo highlight videos. Here are a couple of the better ones: ———— There are quite a few opinions about Romo, of […]
I haven’t done a Wow! Look What I Found! in a while, but having just learned that I was dropped from Commission Junction for having a dormant account, I thought the timing was good once again to show the faithful fans here the best in obscure Cowboys memorabilia. Let’s say you have an extra $26 […]
