The neo city on the hills is a far cry from its cheap pot, cold beer and low-rent former ways.
As much as we'd all like to hear it, NFL commish Roger Goodell isn't going to finish that sentence with "Patrick Peterson. Cornerback. LSU."That's because Peterson will likely be taken in the top seven picks of Thursday night's NFL Draft, and Cowboys owner/general manager Jerry Jones said yes ... More >>
When one party wants out, relationships are difficult to salvage. For now, Michael Young wants a divorce and the Texas Rangers are desperately seeking a lawyer to foster the proceedings. But what if it can't happen before next weekend and Young reports to Surprise, Arizona for spring trainin ... More >>
Woe are the Dallas Cowboys. I still don't think their season is kaput, but it doesn't look good: *At 1-3, they're firmly in the NFC East cellar. *Sunday they play at the Minnesota Vikings, an equally desperate 1-3 team. *You'd think the Cowboys would have the motivation factor, what with B ...

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 >>
10. As I wrote yesterday afternoon, the Cowboys talked to the Miami Dolphins about trading up. And Texas safety Earl Thomas was indeed one of their three targets in Thursday's NFL Draft. The others: Idaho offensive lineman Mike Iupati and Oklahoma State receiver Dez Bryant. No matter which o ... More >>
Whether you're at the end of your rope or merely the end of your week, welcome to Whitt's End: *I said upon hearing the Josh Howard-for-Caron Butler trade during the NBA All-Star break that the Dallas Mavericks were not only re-shaping their roster but re-booting their playoff prospects. I h ... More >>
Welcome back. We missed you.10. A win? Meh. Stats schmatts. Turkey? Whatever. Not to name drop or pound my chest or launch a pre-emptive-strike excuse for whatever distracted drivel may follow, but the highlight of a certain dorky sportswriter/radio host's Thanksgiving ... More >>
I know it's only August. It's only pre-season. But it is, after all, football. Tonight at 9 on Channel 11 and 105.3 The Fan we officially begin washing 44-6 out of our mouths. What will you be watching tonight? As for me ...
Home Sweet Dome.A year ago at this time I was pegging the Dallas Cowboys for the "Super Bowl." Last time we saw them however - 44-6 losers in Philly on Dec. 28 - it was "or bust." Coming off 2008's 9-7 disaster, the Cowboys have shedded from their roster the leading receiver (Ter ... More >>
Whether you're at the end of your rope or merely the end of your week, welcome to Whitt's End: *Might Michael Irvin's days at ESPN Radio be numbered? This isn't sourced "breaking news", but more so a simple putting two-and-two together and arriving at a common sense conclusion. And, no, it has ... More >>
Betcha he isn't writing that fan a check, that's all I'm saying.If Tom Hicks can be a cash-strapped customer at the pawn shop, can it also happen to Jerry Jones? I know, sounds ridiculous. And the notion is likely just that - ridiculous. But the economic crunch is certainly in play with him, ... More >>
Was just over on Unfair Park reading Schutze's take on the latest missle fired into the hull of the Trinity River Toll Road Waste Of Time Project. From the city that gave us the CueCat, plastic dividers on HOV lanes and P.C. Cobb Stadium downgraded into an InfoMart, this might be our dumbe ... More >>
Good guy and good player ultimately not good enough.In the end, soon-to-be former Dallas Cowboy Greg Ellis is so much Michael Finley and Michael Young: A great leader and good player buried in a shitty era. Except that - with his annual bitching about this or that - Ellis may have tarnished h ... More >>
The accident at the Cowboys' practice facility leaves structures collapsed, questions unanswered and a life forever changed
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 >>
Ugh.There's a minicamp at Valley Ranch this weekend, only three months before training camp in San Antonio and a mere 139 days until the Dallas Cowboys kick off their 2009 NFL season against the Buccaneers in Tampa. No better time to look into my crystal football and predict the team's o ... More >>
Doesn't seem that the Dallas Cowboys have learned their lesson or changed one smidge
Among the Dallas Cowboys' many problems, let's address this one this afternoon: Terrell Owens and Greg Ellis are captains. Let that sink in a second while I remind you that any team that annoints me-first guys as locker-room leaders is fatally flawed. We all know T.O.'s agenda. Now, Ellis is at i ... More >>
What’s the only thing less reliable than my picks? Wade Phillips’ 3-4 defense. For a couple years now some smartass has been referring to Dallas’ unit as “Dumbsday.” Last week in coughing up 34 points to the Rams it was abysmal. And this week, despite Phillips taking over the defensive ... More >>
Paced by first-round rookies Felix Jones and Mike Jenkins, the Cowboys somehow survived. Just when it looked like the Eagles would take this to the wire, the Cowboys’ defense came up with four consecutive stellar plays and Dallas hangs on for an exhilarating win that takes it to 2-0. After ... More >>
Cowboys' pass-rusher Greg Ellis and Pulp Fiction's Jules Winnfield. Yay or nay? -- Richie Whitt
Still a good guy. Still a good player? Story goes something like this: Roy Williams sucks. The end. No, wait, actually there’s more. A lot more. The Cowboys’ safety sucks in coverage, blames the media for picking on him, tells teammate Greg Ellis last year in training camp that he’s n ... More >>
Despite Dallas' 5-1 start, the Phillips 3-4 has been stupefying
Blackie Sherrod, you have not been forgotten. Never. Never! I grew up waiting, waiting, waiting for the afternoon Dallas Times Herald to hit our driveway so I could spread it out on the living room floor and devour it as an appetizer before supper. At the time, columnist Blackie Sherrod’s Scatters ... More >>
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 >>
Thanks to their dynamic quarterback, Cowboys will enjoy many happy endings
Apparently, there is no GQ curse, as Tony Romo tossed for 345 yards and four TDs. But what the hell is Roy WIlliams' excuse? See. See what happens when you have a head coach who plays to win instead of plays not to lose. This is what happens: Tony Romo produces five touchdowns, the Cowboys gash the ... More >>
Remember, kids, gambling on the Pokes with real money is illegal, so don't get caught. Nothing better than watching the Cowboys win, right? Unless, that is, you watch the Cowboys win while getting a naked rubdown from this chick and having them cover the spread as the sixth winner in your $100 parla ... More >>
Cowboys veteran tries to escape the tired, poor, hungry, huddled masses
You’re tired of meaningless, pre-season games. Tired of hollow, irrelevant complaining and waffling from Greg Ellis. What you, the Cowboys fan, need is a time-warp to September 9. Until then, a couple of options. If you want to meet 'n' greet the 2007 team all spiffied up in their formals, get yo ... More >>
Don't look now, but T.O. actually seems OK
Cowboys tiptoeing line between super and stupor
Can has-beens from a coach's glory years change the cowboys from mediocrites to monsters?
Light at the end of the tunnel? It's probably an oncoming train.
