    ​While in the midst of a lockout, the NFL owners and players these days can't even agree on what they disagree on. What to do for a football junkie? I know, let's have a March Madness-style tournament, the winner of which gets as his prize: The cover of the Madden 2012 video game. Wait, what? ... More >>

    Is Vince Young the Biggest Waste of Talent in NFL History?

    ​When Vince Young singlehandedly beat USC in the 2005 BCS National Championship Game, he climaxed a sparkling college legacy and seemingly paved his way to NFL stardom.

    ​Garrett Top. Unless of course, Jason Garrett pulls a Cliff Lee and spurns the metroplex. Make no mistake, the Dallas Cowboys' interim head coach is suddenly a hot commodity as other NFL teams' permanent head coach. In the wake of a 5-3 second half he has some real leverage now.

    Better Football? Dallas Cowboys vs. Dallas Desire

    ​Woe are the Dallas Cowboys. I still don't think their season is kaput, but it doesn't look good: *At 1-3, they're firmly in the NFC East cellar. *Sunday they play at the Minnesota Vikings, an equally desperate 1-3 team. *You'd think the Cowboys would have the motivation factor, what with B ...
