10. Linebacker Anthony Spencer missed practice after getting his foot stepped on in Wednesday's warm-ups, but it's a day-to-day thing. No biggie. Second-year player Victor Butler took his place and didn't look out of place at all. 9. Rough day for the offense. Tony Romo was harassed int ... 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 >>

Yes, looks like the former Dallas Maverick is headed to China, if this crudely interpreted Web site is any ... 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 >>

This is how it was supposed to work: After a successful, yet ultimately unfulfilling career in Miami, Zach Thomas retu ... More >>
Fittingly, the stadium with the hole in the roof - so God could watch his favorite football team, duh - was christened by a 10-day Billy Graham crusade. A month later - Oct. 24, 1971 - Texas Stadium opened for Cowboys' business. Come Saturday night, the ol' joint at Loop 12 and Highway ... More >>
Just which local players have earned the right to be eternally identified with their uniform numbers?
More than likely, he will probably, possibly, potentially be a part of the Cowboys' offense this seson. Maybe, that is. Ken Hamlin (unsigned), Roy Williams (family vacation) and Terry Glenn (gimpy knee) weren’t present at yesterday’s Dallas Cowboys’ OTA (back in my beat writing days we ca ... More >>
I won't pretend to know whether this is The Real Deal, but an eBay'er with much positive feedback is selling -- for the low, low price of $2,000, so far -- what he says is a football signed by the entirety of the 1967 Dallas Cowboys roster.

T.O. Souryal, head doc for the Mavs, has a heart--and a defibrillator, if your heart needs one. Till I read this this morning, I had no idea some 5,000 to 7,000 kids in the U.S. die each year from sudden cardiac arrest (SCA) each year. That sucks. But Dr. T.O.
