    Tony Romo's Top 5 Performances

    ​Jerry Jones said he was "outstanding" despite last week's loss to the Jets. Sunday afternoon in San Francisco the owner almost shed a tear in talking about the quarterback's gutsy performance in a 27-24 overtime victory over the 49ers. It's already been a controversial, mesmerizing, f ... More >>

    Jets 27, Cowboys 24: My Top 10 Observer-ations

    ​10. Tony Romo negated some great throws -- you'll never see a prettier pass than the 64-yarder to Jason Witten -- with some bone-headed plays. His interception to Darrelle Revis should've never been thrown and how was everyone except the quarterback ready for the snap with :08 ... More >>

No. Can't take it.​Some of us -- guilty -- figured that this weekend your Dallas Cowboys would be hosting the NFC Championship Game, just one step from staying in town and becoming the first team in NFL history to play in a Super Bowl in its own stadium.

    Numbers With Friends: The All-Time Cowboys' Fantasy Roster

    ​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?

    Dallas Cowboys' Off-Season: Other Than Dance Lessons, What Do They Need?
