    Alex Tanney, the Internet's Favorite Trick-Shot Quarterback, is Now Playing for the Cowboys

    Alex Tanney completed more touchdown passes during his college career (157) than any quarterback in NCAA history, though you probably wouldn't know it. Tanney spent his time as an undergrad in the obscurity of Division III, leading the Fighting Scots of Illinois' tiny Monmouth College. Tanney is wa ... More >>

    America Really, Really Wants the Cowboys to Lose to the Redskins on Sunday

    The Dallas Cowboys, despite a season defined largely by extended periods of mediocrity, improbably, inexplicably find themselves on the cusp of their first playoff berth in three years. It all comes down to Sunday. If they beat the Redskins, they're in. If they lose, they're out. One would expect t ... More >>

    Cowboys 20, Bengals 19: Dallas Channels Grief, or Uses Football as Distraction, or Maybe Both?

    It's impossible to understand what happens behind the scenes in the NFL. Sure, there are NFL films and Hard Knocks, but even those get filtered down and provide a minute glimpse into the heart of an NFL team. Knowing how a group of athletes handle the death of one teammate and the jailing of another ... More >>

    Bob Costas' Sin: By Talking About Gun Violence, He Let Reality Intrude into Football's Fantasyland

    So what was it -- really -- that got everybody so fired up about Bob Costas' timid little attempt at a gun control message on Sunday Night Football last Sunday? Was it less about gun violence than the intrusion of real life into the violent dreamscape of professional football? In the first place, C ... More >>

    Fine, You Wanna "Trade Tony Romo"! Um, For Whom, Exactly?

    My Mock NFL Draft: Don't Miss It, Even if Your Wife's in Labor

    Tyron Smith: The next Dallas Cowboy?​The Cowboys need help at safety. Their 2010 pass defense was the worst in the 50-year history of the storied franchise and two culprits were Gerald Sensabaugh and Alan Ball. Problem: The Cowboys won't take a safety with the 9th pick in tonight's NFL Draf ... More >>

    Bears 27, Cowboys 20: My Top 10 Observations

    Final NFL Quarterback Rankings

    According to the Pro Bowl, Peyton Manning and Kurt Warner are the two best NFL quarterbacks of 2008. According to me, nonsense. Warner has the best receivers in the league and throws in the worst division in football. Manning was steady, but hardly spectacular. My rankings, which take into acco ... More >>

    NFL Quarterback Rankings: Week 16

    Tony Romo, all is forgiven. At least for a week.

Against Cleveland Romo threw an interception in the end zone. Against Philadelphia he trie ... More >>
