I have plenty of smart-ass comments. But seriously, "see how blessed we are." WTF???!!! http://www.espn.com/nfl/story/_/id/21533396/jerry-jones-delivers-message-support-dallas-cowboys
Jerry Jones, in a postgame meeting, acknowledged the Cowboys "are not a good team right now" but backed the players, coach Jason Garrett and the rest of the coaching staff.
Always enjoy hearing Red say nothing substantive or interesting. "We need to score more points than the opposing team, and when we score fewer points than the opponent, we tend to lose. We need to watch the tape to find out how we need to score more points than the opponents." ... See more
Jason Garrett speaks at the podium after the Cowboys' Thanksgiving loss to the LA Chargers.
I'm not a big Garrett supporter, but the team's problems are franchise problems more than just head coaching problems. Just my thoughts. https://sportsday.dallasnews.com/dallas-cowboys/cowboys/2017/11/23/blowout-loss-proves-cowboys-coach-jason-garretthas-failed-many-levels ... See more
ARLINGTON - The Dallas Cowboys' 2017 season ended in a federal courthouse in New York three weeks ago. Any hope this team could survive without...
The Cowboys gave up 515 yards in the 28-6 loss today, which are the most ever on Thanksgiving Day. This is the second year in a row that an opponent has had more than 500 yards vs. Dallas on Thanksgiving, with the Redskins gaining 505 last year. Meanwhile...the only other times the Cowboys have lost by 22 or more points on Thanksgiving were 1989 (27-0 loss to Philadelphia) and 2014 (33-10 in 2014). Anyway, pitiful performance by a team going nowhere. ... See more
ESPN's article about the greatest performances on Thanksgiving Day suggests that Troy Aikman's 455-yard passing day in a loss in 1998 was the best for Dallas. Whatever. With respect to the Cowboys, I would include the following nominations: Bob Hayes, 1967: 4 receptions, 110 yards, 2 TDs; 4 punt returns for 93 yards and a touchdown. Total: 220 all-purpose yards with 3 TDs in a 46-21 win over St. Louis. Emmitt Smith, 1996: 155 yards on 29 carries with 3 TDs in a 21-10 win over the Redskins. Tony Romo, 2006: 22-29, 306 yards, 5 TDs, 0 Int., 148.9 passer rating in a 38-10 win over Tampa Bay. Michael Irvin, 1991: 8 receptions, 157 yards, 1 TD (which iced the game in the 4th quarter) in a 20-10 win over Pittsburgh. Randy White, 1984: 3 sacks in a 20-17 win over New England. DeMarcus Ware, 2008: 3 sacks in a 34-9 win over Seattle. http://www.espn.com/blog/nflnation/post/_/id/258460/top-nfl-thanksgiving-day-performances-303-receiving-yards-and-more ... See more
O.J. Simpson's 273 rushing yards in 1976, Jim Benton's 303 receiving yards in 1945, Peyton Manning's six TDs in 2004. Who else makes the list?
At 5-5, the Cowboys trail the Panthers (7-3), Falcons (6-4), Lions (6-4), Seahawks (6-4), and Packers (also 5-5, but Dallas loses the tiebreaker) for the wildcard. Best case scenario would be that somehow Dallas beats Seattle and ends up with the same record as the Seahawks six weeks from now, with one of those two teams making the playoffs. I don't see how it can happen, not only because of the poor play recently, but also because Dallas will lose several tiebreakers. The odds of making the playoffs seems to be around the same as those for completing a Hail Mary. (Of course, that's what Atlanta did against us...with almost no effort, I might add!) ... See more
Terrible news about Terry Glenn. Rest in peace. http://www.espn.com/nfl/story/_/id/21488691/terry-glenn-former-nfl-wide-receiver-dies-age-43-involvement-suspected-car-accident
Terry Glenn, who played parts of 12 seasons as a wide receiver in the NFL, has died at the age of 43 after being involved in a suspected car crash.
Jerry is matching Al Davis's record and legacy in every way possible. The Raiders didn't win a Super Bowl title in the last 28 years of Al's life; the Cowboys have had 22 years since their last title and are well on their way to being eliminated from the playoffs. But sure, Jerry, distractions aren't hurting a thing. http://www.espn.com/nfl/story/_/id/21481952/jerry-jones-dallas-cowboys-says-rift-nfl-not-affecting-team-play ... See more
Jerry Jones said he does not believe tensions between the Cowboys owner and the NFL have affected his team on the field.
I guess the Cowboys can't mess up the draft next year if the league strips Jerry of draft picks. Or some logic like that. http://www.espn.com/nfl/story/_/id/21428287/nfl-sends-letter-dallas-cowboys-owner-jerry-jones-calling-actions-roger-goodell-contract-talks-detrimental-league ... See more
Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones' actions during commissioner Roger Goodell's contract talks have been "detrimental" to the league, according to a letter sent to Jones by the NFL.
