    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.

    Jerry Jones Says Trash Your NFL Mock Drafts

    ​What we saw in 2010 were the record number of yards and points allowed by the Dallas Cowboys' defense. We remember the eye-popping, heart-gouging 33 passing touchdowns surrendered.

    ​Whether you're at the end of your rope or merely the end of your week, welcome to Whitt's End: *So the Dallas Cowboys hire loquacious, bombastic, entertaining new defensive coordinator Rob Ryan not with a press conference but only a press release?

    OU 28, Texas 20: My Top 10 Observations

    ​10. Pretty sure the Sooners and Longhorns are just mediocre football teams. But I'm certain Texas was absolutely gutted -- in emotion and field-position -- by nine penalties. 9.
