    Cowboys 38, Eagles 33: Dallas Tenderly Conquered the Terrible Eagles Last Night

    There are only so many times one can look at a football game and say "A win is a win." Early in the season, when a team is getting its bearings, scrappy victories can be a bit charming. In Week 12, against a team that dragged in a seven-game losing streak? Hideous. Jason Garrett and company are t ... More >>

    Falcons 19, Cowboys 13: Dallas Invents New Way to Lose, Should Definitely File for Patent

    It was the result everyone was expecting: Cowboys go on the road against an undefeated, incredibly disciplined team and get beat, exchanging a shovel for a backhoe as they try to quickly dig the grave for the 2012 season. For a while, though, it seemed as if the Gauchos might actually have a shot ... More >>

    Giants 29, Cowboys 24: Dallas Maximizes its Charitable Deductions, Gives Another Away

    This year for Halloween, instead of playing on current trends like the Presidential race or zombies, the Cowboys decided to dress up like something tried and true: the Dallas Cowboys. In a game that bordered on parody, the Cowboys went to their old bag of fail and pulled out a gut-melter. It wasn't ... More >>

    Cowboys 19, Panthers 14: Dallas Straps on Beer Goggles, Takes Home an Ugly One

    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 >>

    Flags, Sacks and Hats: How The Cowboys Conquered The Bucs

    A week after being thoroughly handled by the Seattle Seahawks, the Cowboys returned to Dallas to be thoroughly handled by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Fortunately for Dallas, Tampa didn't have a running back near the caliber of Marshawn Lynch, and their punt coverage team couldn't resist going for Cow ... 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 ...

    Cowboys-Giants: Some Thoughts on Another Opening Night Beatd HOLY CRAP THEY WON!

    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 >>

    Six Thoughts from Last Night's Cowboys Game, Which We Watched for Some Reason

    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 ...

    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 >>

    ​Yes, thanks for asking, I am indeed ready for some football. And tonight we'll all get a smidge, in the form of Cowboys-Broncos in Arlington at 7:30. Jason Garrett said he plans to play his starters a series, or about 8 to 12 plays. Same with the Broncos and their new coach John Fox. ... More >>

    Keith Brooking Isn't Ready to Retire

    In a related story, Dallas Cowboys fans respectfully disagree. Well, don't we? Brooking says he has something left in the tank, but we all saw him blocked out of the play - hell, out of the picture - on the Eagles' clock-killing, game-winning drive last Sunday. I've seen - and heard - enough from B ... More >>

    Dallas Cowboys: The Defense Rests

    ​A proud franchise that once upon a time won Super Bowls behind a Doomsday Defense is these days shackled to the most disappointing season in team history by a defense that is simply doomed. Back in training camp down in The Alamodome in San Antonio, head coach Wade Phillips trumpeted&nb ... More >>

    ​10. Been saying Marion Barber's done for a while. If he gets another carry over Tashard Choice this season it will be criminal. I know the Colts' run defense is putrid, but you can't deny that Choice is a much better running back than Barber at this point. Maybe even better than Felix Jones. ... More >>

    Dallas Cowboys' 2009 Draft Class = The Really Dirty Dozen

    ​At the time - April 30, 2009 - I called the Dallas Cowboys' draft class of 2009 a "dirty dozen." And, no, it was a compliment. Fast-forward to today and, unfortunately, it's uglier than ever. Making room on the roster for a tight end in light of another injury to another tight end (Martellus ... More >>
