If there's less post-draft buzz than usual, it's because the Cowboys for once went substance over style.
10. Man, what a letdown. You spend all weekend talking about and listening to and watching highlights of Emmitt Smith and Super Bowls and football immortals. Then they kick off the Hall of Fame game and you get Cowboys 16, Bengals 7. It's like going to the theater and being titillated b ... More >>

Ironic, after all we expected and all he's been through and all he exhibited during training camp, that Pacman Jones' season is ended by this: A muffed punt. Back in Oxnard, Calif., Pacman dazzled us by catching six punts and holding all six balls without dropping a single one. In the end, because ... More >>
Forgiven? Or forgotten? Last week Cowboys’ owner Jerry Jones was emphatic when asked if he’d like Pacman Jones back. “Yes,” Jones declared. On Monday at Valley Ranch coach Wade Phillips was slightly less enthusiastic. “I really don't know,” Phillips said. “When he's g ... More >>
If you knew the tenants of this joint are a combined 7-14-3 and that the building got majorly snubbed this afternoon, you might be headed for a gold star. And stuff. Simple.
