But it's probably no better than gambling on any other team, so go ahead and be a homer.
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 >>
Was pondering the disappointing Dallas Cowboys season and I decided to come up with one of my patented Top 10 lists that you guys are so fond of despise. Looking for the season's crossroads plays, I got out my schedule and started thinking about the opener in Washington Sunday night, S ... More >>
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. But with yesterday's announcement by Tennessee Titans owner Bud Adams that Young would be traded or released, Young official ... More >>
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. How's th ... More >>
10. It took all of one play to smack you in the kisser with the fact that these were not your same ol' Stumbledoofus Cowboys. Bruised ribs and all, cornerback Terence Newman tackled Mario Manningham for a 2-yard loss after a catch on New York's first play. Against the Packers last week ... More >>
For the last month we've all been - gladly, of course - buried up to here in the Texas Rangers. Don't look now, but the other sports in our city didn't shut down. Let's play some catch up, shall we? FC DALLAS - In the Major League Soccer's Western Conference semifinals, they have a 2-1 aggregate le ... More >>
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 ...

Looks like about 3.5 times more of you - 885,000 homes to 250,000 homes - watched the Dallas Cowboys over the Texas Rangers on Sunday, so let's not shun football today. Though Leonard Davis is admitting he sucks and Martellus Bennett is hurt and the Cowboys are 1-3 and old kicker Nick Folk i ... More >>
10. No two ways around it, your Dallas Cowboys are not a good football team. They are a collection of talented football players. But together they are not a good team. In linebacker Keith Brooking's words, "We play really stupid football at crucial times in the game." 9. Tony Romo was ... More >>
On the agenda at the NFL owners meetings this week in Orlando: *Marquee TV games, including the Cowboys' 2010 Thanksgiving opponent. *Further discussion of how to share annual $8 billion in revenue with players. *New rules changes. Maybe overtime. Possibly eliminating the three-point stance. ... More >>
We all know Jerry Jones' grandiose vision: For the Dallas Cowboys to play in Super Bowl XLV. Furthermore, to be the first team in NFL history to play in a Super Bowl in its own city. Everything's bigger in Texas, including the dreams. But odds - and next season's schedule - say it ain't ... More >>
In Texas, the old saying goes, there exist only two sports: Football. And spring football. God, after all, decreed Texas Stadium have a hole in its roof so he could look down upon his favorite team. Right? From the old wooden Fair Park Bowl through the Cotton Bowl, Texas Stadium and now the ... More >>
Size matters.Everything's bigger (and lower) in Texas. Toldja. Back in May - after reading that the colossal video boards at Cowboys Stadium were to be only 90 feet above the playing field - I penned an item questioning exactly how high was high enough. It was more common sense than aeron ... More >>
... to this. From this ... There are kinks to be worked out, yes. But in Friday's victory over the Tennessee Titans the Dallas Cowboys showed that their team and their stadium just might be great - if not ... More >>
Ironic, after all we expected and all he's been through and all he exhibited during training camp, that Pacman Jones' season is ended by this: A muffed punt. Back in Oxnard, Calif., Pacman dazzled us by catching six punts and holding all six balls without dropping a single one. In the end, because ... More >>
If you knew the tenants of this joint are a combined 7-14-3 and that the building got majorly snubbed this afternoon, you might be headed for a gold star. And stuff. Simple. Anyone getting the matches perfecto wins a year’s free subscription to the Dallas Observer (redeemable each Thursday a ... More >>
The Cowboys are counting on NFL outlaw Pacman Jones to pop the top on their sixth Super Bowl.
T.O. brings out Dallas' dark side
Feel-good football tale scores with charm and sincerity
Don't look now, but it's sports' biggest waste of time
Remember Eddie George? He's the guy who's not Julius Jones.
It's August. Who knew there'd be so much sports news? Not me.
