The Blue and

Many thanks to CaliCowboy, SilverStar, OCF, DA FAN, and all the others at The Blue and, who have asked me to be moderator there. If you prefer a little bit more mature crowd with quite a number of years of experience watching the Cowboys, then I highly suggest checking it out. While you are there, be sure to take a look at the pictures offered by CaliCowboy, who is a highly talented photographer.

And in my first act as a moderator there, I’m stealing one of their ideas… the SpringWidget RSS reader, complete with my own graphics. These are the Cowboys headlines from SportsSpyder, which is a very helpful tool for those of us trying to stay interested in February.

Troy Aikman Highlight Clip. [Trust Me– There are Highlights…]

This is the second filler video of the week, but I will have more real news later. Hope everyone is enjoying the off-season thus far…

If you stop the clip after a minute or so, you’ll think that I’m feeding you a Philadelphia Eagles highlight film. But alas, the better stuff is there…

Roger Staubach Video… Set to Foo Fighters(?)

I fully realize that this is filler, but ’tis the season. Here’s a great Roger Staubach highlight video, although it is a little bit odd to watch these set to the tune of “My Hero” by Foo Fighters. Tweet

And Now the Long, Cold [Er, Warmer?] Offseason

If you are a true draftnik, then your season has just begun now that the Pro Bowl is over. For those of us who have trouble updating their mock drafts on a daily basis, it’s a long road to August. Sigh. As for the Pro Bowl, it was unfortunate for Drew Brees that he had […]

Wade Phillips: A More Complete History

The new head coach of the Dallas Cowboys, Wade Phillips, has a career winning percentage of .552 as head coach or interim head coach of four teams. Though he has reached the playoffs in three of his five five years as head coach, he has never won a playoff game. As far as drafts, I […]

Surely We Can’t Go Wrong with a Texas Native. Right?

Let’s review some Cowboys’ history: Good birth places: Mission, Texas (Tom Landry), Port Arthur, Texas (Jimmy Johnson). Birth place of that other Super Bowl coach: Crossett, Arkansas (Barry Switzer). Birthplaces of the mediocre and the bad: Gainesville, Georgia (Chan Gailey), Somewhere in Connecticut (Dave Campo); Englewood, New Jersey (the Tuna fellow). So now we welcome […]

Let’s Hope He’s No Bum… Or Perhaps That He Is?

Word on the street this morning is that the Cowboys will announce Wade Phillips as the new head coach. Phillips has compiled an overall record of 48-39 with the Broncos and Bills, along with interim jobs at New Orleans and Atlanta. The 60-year-old is, of course, the son of Bum Phillips, who guided the Houston […]

Clip: Mr. Romo at the Super Bowl

Found this comforting clip of a Tony Romo interview in Miami. I thought for a moment that he had lost his touch in referring generally to the second person, but alas, he came through with, “Sometimes you can’t really learn things until you go through them and experience them….” Please feel free to insert a […]

More Talent Than We Knew? Probably Not.

We learned today that Cowboys center Andre Gurode was named to the Pro Bowl, replacing Olin Kreutz of the Chicago Bears. That means that seven members of a 9-7 Cowboys team are going to Hawaii. Gurode is one of four players making his first Pro Bowl appearance, along with Tony Romo, Mat McBriar and DeMarcus […]

Cowboys’ All-Time Record vs. Eventual Super Bowl Winners

Mickey Spagnola reminded us today that the Cowboys were the first team to beat the Super Bowl Champion Indianapolis Colts this season. This marks the first time in 10 seasons that the Cowboys have defeated the eventual Super Bowl champion and led me to wonder what the Cowboys all-time record in this obscure category might […]
