    The Cowboys Are No Longer the Cowboys

    It happened again. The Cowboys dominated the first two-thirds of a game, just as they did against Tennessee and Houston, and found themselves in a fistfight to the finish. This time it was against Seahawks in Seattle, a presumably impossible task, but the result was the same. The Cowboys won their f ... More >>

    Why Memphis May Fire is Touring Right Before the New Album Comes Out

    Replacing a lead singer is no easy feat. Just ask Matty Mullins. Born and raised outside of Seattle, Washington, Mullins became the second frontman for Dallas' own Memphis May Fire back in 2008. Since then, the band has continued to expand its fan base while maturing and incorporating new themes int ... More >>

    "Teen Mystifier" John Tucker "Correctly" "Predicted" Super Bowl Score and MVP

    Any creature can predict the winner of the Super Bowl. Those who have correctly done so include: an ape, a porcupine, a horde of puppies, a manatee, a seal, a panda, an octopus and a bunny. Add to that list the elusive "teen mystifier," a 17-year-old Dallas magician named John Tucker. Not only did ... More >>

    The Terrifying Pre-Super Bowl Concussion That Scared the Hell Out of Troy Aikman

    Troy Aikman's concussion in the third quarter of the 1994 NFC Championship game against the San Francisco 49ers is now just a footnote on the team's march to a second consecutive Super Bowl victory, which itself gets lost in telling of the mid-'90s golden age of America's Team.

    Watch Cowboys Fan's Epic, Profanity-Filled Tirade Over Loss to Seahawks

    Yesterday, still irrationally giddy from the beatdown their Seahawks delivered on Sunday ( I for one blame the replacement refs for Felix Jones' fumble on the opening kickoff. And the subsequent blocked punt. And the Romo interception right after. And -- oh screw it, the Cowboys blew.) , our colleag ... More >>

    Seahawks 27, Cowboys 7: Thoughts on a Depressing Trip to Seattle

    The Cowboys' 27-7 pasting at the hands of the Seahawks was about as brutal as the final score indicates. From the opening kickoff (literally!), Seattle simply played with a level of physicality that the Cowboys could not match. Every Dallas ball carrier was getting plowed, while Seahawks running b ...

    Seriously, NFL? First you ban the clothesline, then you move kickoffs to within field goal range, and now you're handing out sanctions because people are trying too hard? Some background: The league's collective bargaining agreement bans "contact work" in spring practices. Specifically, there's no ... More >>

    Cowboys-49ers: Look Out Below!

    ​Okay, so the Cowboys were better than I expected in last week's NFL opener. But don't be fooled, the San Francisco 49ers weren't as good as it seems.
