Enough of this asinine stuff about "best player available." What if, somehow, at No. 9 in April's NFL Draft that player happens to be a tight end? A weakside linebacker? A punter? Or, God and Tim Cowlishaw forbid, a quarterback? Under that premise, the Cowboys - 6-10 and desperate for help ... More >>

The debate will continue until Jones either hands over the keys t ... 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 >>
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 >>
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? Saturday night in Canton receiver Bob Hayes became the 11th Cowboy inducted into Canton, continuing a trend that has seen four Dallas stars earn immortality ove ... More >>

Was reminded why today.Don't tell the teens and the 'tweens - or my wife - but something about the whole deal strikes as, um, ridiculously fraudulent.Like, for example, the fact t ... 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?
Do you really wanna see Jason Kidd as a Maverick again? Depends on what Dallas has to give up, doesn't it? While one familiar face is departing, two more may be returning. President Bush delivered his seventh and final State of the Union last night, prompting interruptions for applause a ridiculous ... More >>
No doubt Cowboys fans will recall the name Clayton Holmes; he was, after all, on those Dallas teams that won three Super Bowl rings in the 1990s -- a defensive back and special-teams whiz, a third-round draft pick who played like a first-rounder. "As far as the guys I played with in my 13-year caree ... More >>
Just give us the highlights, Scott.

I know what you're thinking. Is the TAKS test really that hard? Who the hell is Jimmy Hoffa? How did the refs not call a foul on San Antonio's Tony Parker for clearly grabbing a handful of Dirk Nowitzki's jersey on the potential series-winning tip at the buzzer? And, hmmm, whatever happened to Joe A ... More >>
A little Valley Ranch birdie chirped to me this morning that, in addition to former All-Pro safety Charlie Waters, the Dallas Cowboys will interview former deep snapper and SMU alum Dale Hellestrae to be their new radio analyst. With Babe Laufenberg's voluntary departure, the Cowboys need an enterta ... More >>
