    Dallas Cowboys' Draft Needs: How About a Safe(ty) Pick

    ​Enough of this asinine stuff about "best player available." What if, somehow, at No. 9 in April's NFL Draft that player happens to be a tight end? A weakside linebacker? A punter? Or, God and Tim Cowlishaw forbid, a quarterback? Under that premise, the Cowboys - 6-10 and desperate for help ... More >>

    Same Crap, Different Coach: Jason Garrett Not the Answer as Cowboys Lose Winnable Game to Struggling Cards 27-26 and Fall to 5-10

    Miles Austin caught six balls for 115 yards and a TD, but his slip-up turned into a defensive TD, and his post-game antics were embarrassing. ​If there ever was an easy win to be had this year for the Dallas Cowboys, last night's Christmas match-up with the Arizona Cardinals was it.

Matching him with Terrell Owens, the move was supposed to give the Cowboys yet another elite weapon en route ... More >>
