The real deal?Lots of Texas Rangers' catch-up to spread around today ... *Back in spring training we all watched how Neftali Feliz would react to being stretched out as a potential starter.

Buzzing around radio row this week have been familiar Dallas Cowboys faces such as Tashard Choice, Felix Jones, Everson Walls, Daryl Johnston, Darren Woodson, Larry Brown, Dale Hellestrae, Michael Irvin, Roger Staubach and Erik Williams. And yesterday owner Jerry Jones ma ... 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 >>
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 >>

David "Ferris" Buehler10. Dez Bryant, wearing a walking boot on his sprained right ankle, made several nice plays in Monday's only workout. But he wasn't on the receiving end, but rather the passing end. Bryant threw left-handed passes to receivers, who in a seemingly lazy drill attempted ... More >>
Michael Young is crushing the ball. That's nothing new. He's also playing flawlessly in the field. Again, nothing new. And last night he sparked a Texas Rangers' 4-3 victory over the Baltimore Orioles with first his bat, then his hustle. Want something else not so new? We underappreciate him ... More >>
I grew up with Drew Pearson, covered Michael Irvin and have the highest hopes for Dez Bryant. But should the Cowboys' rookie receiver from Oklahoma State be allowed to wear the sacred No. 88? The Cowboys revere uniform numbers, but they don't retire them. Should they? You don't see No. 8 or ... More >>

No. 12 in your football program ... No. 12 on our fantasy roster.When I say No. 22, who comes to mind? Do you immediately think of the Dallas Cowboys' all-time best runner?

Who's next?Hard to remember way back when we bitched and moaned about a "Cowboys bias" in the Pro Football Hall of Fame isn't it?

I did go 10 days without food and I'm committed to finishing this on December 13. But there was a time when I was a real, live thrill-seeker. Found some evidence recently.

Flat out, who deserves the most credit? Jimmy Johnson transformed the Dallas Cowboys from 1-15 laughingstock into back-to-back Super Bowl champs. Jerry Jones hired Johnson. So which one is more deserving of immortality in the Pro Football Hall of Fame? Both are on the HOF’s preliminary ... More >>
Just which local players have earned the right to be eternally identified with their uniform numbers?
The Cowboys are counting on NFL outlaw Pacman Jones to pop the top on their sixth Super Bowl.
Damn that Super Bowl scent is intoxicating. A 2-0 start, a void in the defensive line and, voila, the Dallas Cowboys are taking a chance on a guy known to stockpile more munitions than David Koresh. Dallas’ signing of gun-toting, run-stuffing Tank Johnson is, of course, vintage Jerry Jones. This ... More >>
