    'Skins 28, 'Boys 18: If Purgatory Sponsored a Football Team, It'd Be These Cowboys

    Man. How could it have ended any other way? It was such a familiar outcome that looking back on it seems disgustingly routine. Just when you put your tiny heart into hoping for this team to do well, it gets crushed as it has so many, many times before. One playoff victory isn't nearly accurate e ... More >>

    Falcons 19, Cowboys 13: Dallas Invents New Way to Lose, Should Definitely File for Patent

    It was the result everyone was expecting: Cowboys go on the road against an undefeated, incredibly disciplined team and get beat, exchanging a shovel for a backhoe as they try to quickly dig the grave for the 2012 season. For a while, though, it seemed as if the Gauchos might actually have a shot ... More >>

    You Betcha: Week 13

    Something I never envisioned typing along my life’s journey: Thank you, Martellus Bennett. But because of the backup tight end’s athletic, dramatic touchdown grab in Washington last week I’m still in bidness. Barely. Down a cool $7,500 this season, but in better shape than the poo ... More >>

    Cowboys 27, Packers 16

    Marion Barber and the Cowboys dove into a relatively easy win at Lambeau Field. *Been predicting this (12:58 entry) for almost a year now. But when the Cowboys finally called a Patrick Crayton pass, it was a harmless floater into double coverage that was almost intercepted. Hardly worth the wai ... More >>
