May is a weird time in the NFL. It's beautiful in the sense that hope is as palpable as ever throughout the buildings of all 32 franchises, but it's weird in that players tend to make demands before everything gets seriously rolling on the season. By now you surely know that Dallas Cowboys Offensive Guard Ronald Leary has requested to be traded to a team that doesn't have a Star on its helmet. I'm not a professional football player, shocking I know, but the idea that someone would want to play for anyone but the Cowboys befuddles me. Ronald Leary is entitled to want what he wants, and he wants a new home.
After Travis Frederick started our Cowboys on the Clock series, leading us to April 28th and the NFL Draft, it has been nothing but defensive players for the past three days. We came back from back-to-back Beyond the Clock posts on Thursday with Larry Bethea, and then took a look...
Last night ESPN Analyst Adam Schefter reported that former Cowboys cornerback Mike Jenkins had agreed to a one-year deal with the Oakland Raiders. Jenkins was a first round pick for the Cowboys who played a physical man-to-man style.  While he flashed glimpses of solid potential, he was constantly plagued by...

Reflective Future

Is there really such a thing as a Monday morning quarterback for the season? That's about what I feel like for the last few weeks watching the (Va)Giants not only make their way into the playoffs but win out the hard way - one game at a time; no...
Everyone knows the old cliche that "defense wins championships". Obviously you still need to score to win but a great defense can certainly make up for a not so good offense. Luckily the Cowboys going into the 2010 season have arguably the most talented offense in the NFL. They will...
The 2009-2010 season is behind us now.  That being said we have a lot to reflect on.  Wins and losses have welcomed us with open arms and now we are already in gear to prepare for our next season.  (Let it be known Dallas Cowboys Nation will not take...
Now I want you all to understand before further reading what I have to say.  I believe that this Dallas Cowboys team is the best we’ve seen in years.  From top to bottom they are hands down one of the best teams in the league.  I believe that Tony...

Daily Dose 1-6-2010

Let's be honest, it's midway through the week before the biggest game the Cowboys have had in more than a decade - in fact this spans across three decades from the 90's and aughts to 2010. Sure they've had big games in the 13 years, but this wild card...

Daily Dose 12-31-2009

Typically the “Daily Dose” is an article pertaining to the news around the league, but what happens when the Dallas Cowboys are the news around the league.  That’s right, for once the Cowboys are the talk of the media world for something besides drama and December woes.  This week...
What a game, eh? I’ve only been watching the Cowboys since the 91 season, since I was seven years old, but that Cowboys-Saints game was the most exciting game I’ve ever watched. My nerves were going haywire at kickoff wondering just how the ‘Boys would do, and low and behold,...
Are the Cowboys finally making the turn from NFL’s most dysfunctional into an actual competitive football team? Do things really turn that quickly in the NFL? Does this team actually have a heart and a desire to be the best? It certainly looks that way after what was undoubtedly...
According to Orlando Scandrick, Mike Jenkins will get the nod at starting right cornerback once again this week against Denver.  Jenkins has been solid so far in two starts, notching what should have been 2 interceptions.  Jenkins has 9 tackles and 3 passes defended so far in a season...
Carolina came into Big D with a challenge. Trying to prove that they aren’t the team that the media has painted them to be. Unfortunately for them, Dallas was on that same mission. After a slow paced first half, Dallas came up fired up, and honestly...
Sunday night in Arlington, Texas was supposed to be the grand opening of the greatest NFL stadium, and it was supposed to open with the Cowboys dismantling the New York Giants. Unfortunately for us the fans and the Cowboys, things did not go as planned! So there must be someone...
The 2009 NFL season is just around the corner now. We're four games away from the first regular season game - but that doesn't mean we don't still have some football to look at this month. The Titans and Bill got the preseason started and in a pleasing way...
As a Dallas Cowboys fan I am excited to know that it’s only two days until the first game of the season, albeit only a preseason game I’m still looking forward to seeing my ‘Boys in blue kicking some tail on the turf once again. Needless to say, I, and...
Got to give props to anyone who attempts a top list for Dallas Cowboys history - I mean whether it's for the best players, worst players, best plays, or worst plays, you've got enough ammo to stretch a top 1,000 on just about any aspect. So here we have...
In part one of this series we discussed how we see things shaking down amongst the over populated line backing corps. This next group some might say is the most critical to the Cowboys success, and I would be one of those people. As far as the defense goes this...
Training camp is less than two weeks away now and there are only two starting positions up for grabs. However only one of those is really in question and it is sure to be an extremely heated battle. Mike Jenkins, last years first round pick and the hard nosed 5th...
Well I’m back from a grueling week of training and just in time to get ready for training camp.  I don’t know if you’ve realized but this may be the most important training camp the Cowboys organization has endured in years.  Why you ask? Well, simply because we are...
