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 >>
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? Or their all-time best rusher? Or perhaps instead the second-leading all-time scorer in the history of the Dallas Mav ... More >>
Whether you're at the end of your rope or merely the end of your week, welcome to Whitt's End: *So Jerry Jones wanted Dan Reeves to pledge working X amount of hours per week. Maybe it's part of the owner's new get-tough policy, but isn't that ridiculous? I seem to remember a head coach around here t ... More >>
Two days and a cloud of dust ...Dan Reeves - who played for and coached for and still bleeds for the Dallas Cowboys - soured on the inner workings of Valley Ranch in 48 hours. Question: What took him so long? Reeves, remember, turned down the offensive coordinator's gig with the San ... More >>
Credit where credit is due. Seems like a simple concept. But in today's 24-second news cycle the genesis of "breaking news" often finds himself as nothing more than the guy at the bottom of the dog pile. Forgotten. Squashed. Raped of credit. Example #1: The Ticket's George Dunham. Got a Ticket text ... More >>
Doesn't seem that the Dallas Cowboys have learned their lesson or changed one smidge
Steelers 27, Cardinals 23: Best Super Bowl ever? Santonio Holmes' tip-toe TD: Best Super Bowl catch ever? The Boss: Best Super Bowl halftime show ever? Better late than never, I've got XLIII thoughts about Super Bowl 43: 43. Gotta make it snappy. My free Grand Slam at Denny's is calling. 4 ... More >>
Since there's nothing to do today other than stay inside and pray for these glaciers of ice to somehow melt by Spring Break, let's take a look at the Cowboys shall we? Remember what owner Jerry Jones said immediately after his team's 44-6 season-ending loss in Philadelphia? I do. "Where do we g ... More >>
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?
Cowboys' Jerry and Bill have deteriorated into comedy's Penn and Teller
The career of Dallas sportswriter Jim Dent was skyrocketing, then booze and bad behavior caused a hard landing
Plus: Sack of Kittens, What's in a Name?
In Chan Gailey, Jerry Jones has God, the shotgun, and, maybe, a little Tom Landry
Jerry Jones didn't hire a black head coach. Does that make him a racist?
