Friday afternoon, tragedy struck. America laughed while Big Tex smoldered, fairgoers having no free hands to wipe the tears as they double-fisted turkey legs and corn dogs. With the memory of the deep-fried deity lighting a fire in their collective boots, the Cowboys stormed out of the locker room ... More >>
When people look back on the Cowboys' 2012 season, there are only two things they will be concerned with: wins and losses. Yesterday's game falls into the latter column, but only because the Pokes violently shoved it out of the former.

What a win for the good guys. The Bi-Ringed Mouth Breather from the Bayou finally got his comeuppance, Tony Romo executed like a champ when it mattered, DeMarco Murray was DeMarco Murray, and the defense held up its end of the bargain by keeping the Giants' offense at bay much of the game. Now let ... More >>
Justin Bitner is a local freelance writer. He last wrote for the Observer about FC Dallas. Oh, and sandwiches.
As expected, the starters were firmly entrenched on the sidelines last night, having no intention of taking the field until postgame bro-hugs. The third and fourth deep, though, had to giv ... More >>
Editor's note: Jonathan Bales is the founder of DallasCowboysTimes.com and occasionally writes for The New York Times. We thought it'd be fun to have him break out the Xs and Os and Oh Shits before Sunday's big game. We apologize in advance for the nerdiness.

When Tony Romo was sacked by the Giants' Michael Boley last October 25 it broke his collar bone and effectively ended what was already a wobbly Cowboys' 2010 season.
It was also, remember, the result of a missed blocking assignment by a rookie.

10. Backup quarterback Jon Kitna didn't practice for a second consecutive day on Tuesday because of a sore back yesterday. Move along, nothing to see here. (Fingers crossed.)
9. Owner Jerry Jones thinks running back Felix Jones is the key to the season: "If he's real good, we'll be real go ... More >>
Increasingly concerned that veteran Montrae Holland won't be the answer at right guard in 2011, the Cowboys have begun re-working their offensive line as training camp ends here in San Antonio after this afternoon's final padded practice at The Alamodome.
Yesterday the Cowboys switched vete ... More >>
10. It wasn't exactly football, but it was close. Sunday's Blue-White scrimmage featured a couple of decent hits and some tackling to the ground. For the most part it was 75-percent speed, a juicy appetizer for Thursday's Cowboys-Broncos pre-season opener
9. By my very unscientific and ... More >>
*Jason Garrett may be changing the culture but his clock might be a bit off. Today's 10 a.m. walkthrough at The Alamodome started at precisely ... 10:30. Actually, he has an excuse. The NFL Players Association was here to get the players' vote to recertify the union.
*Look for first-round draft ... More >>
Was talking to Cowboys' long-snapper L.P. Ladouceur yesterday when the news broke: "Judge Susan Nelson rules for players. Lockout to be lifted."Him: "What does that mean? We're back to work tomorrow?"Me: "Um, I'm not sure."
At the time -- as usual -- I felt like an uninformed dork, clueless t ... More >>
Personally, I don't see much sense in spilling blood, sweat, tears, worry and blogosphere space on your Dallas Cowboys.
At 1-5 and with Tony Romo out at least six weeks, the season is over. Considering it started not that long ago with Super Bowl aspirations, this has to be the most disappoi ... More >>
Chris Hall: The man with the (free agent) planYou can rag on the Dallas Cowboys' drafts. There have been as many whiffs as hits, no?
But before we condemn general manager Jerry Jones and his staff, along the way somebody's doing something right. Mainly, the team's scouting department.
I kn ... More >>
The Cowboys are 2-1 in the preseason. They've suffered numerous injuries but only one serious (tight end John Phillips). The defense has been at times dominating. The offense has been sporadic at best. Kickers Mat McBriar and David Buehler look reliable.
