Former SMU player-turned-Cowboys' stud Bryan McCann got me to thinking. Has an undrafted guy ever made such an immediate impact in Dallas? An interception return of 101 yards one week, followed by a 97-yard punt return the following week is impressive. But he'd better keep it up ... More >>
Deion Sanders played for the Atlanta Falcons, San Francisco 49ers, Washington Redskins and Baltimore Ravens. Why, then, does it feel like it's a no-brainer that he goes into the Pro Football Hall of Fame as a Dallas Cowboy? He's - perhaps reluctantly - ours, right? Former Cowboys Bill ... More >>
Ah, the good ol' days.Sean Lee is good. But not good enough. Drafted in the second round to be a better Bobby Carpenter, the Penn State rookie has looked good in the preseason.

Or their all-time best rusher? Or perhaps instead the second-leading all-time scorer in the history of the Dallas Mav ... More >>
Jerry McClureIrvin to Rich Behm's family: $40,000For the first time in a long time, the Dallas Cowboys are actually acting like a unified team. In the wake of the Valley Ranch practice facility collapse on May 2, last night's premiere of Spike TV's new reality series Fourth and Long at Sting matured ... More >>
The kind folks at SpikeTV have passed along this sneak peek at Michael Irvin's Fourth and Long, his limited-run series featuring a bunch of washed-out Dallas Cowboys wanna-bes set to debut on The Dude Network next month. The series was shot earlier this year at the Cotton Bowl and features several n ... More >>
Perhaps Terrell Owens can now concentrate on his acting career.The Sports Illustrated scribe was among the first to predict that Jerry Jones would cut Terrell Owens, even as Jones hemmed and hawed in recent days about what he was going to do with the wide receiver.
