We're going streaking! For the first time in many years, the Dallas Cowboys are on a roll. After gutting out a few wins against mediocre teams, the Cowboys have now claimed back-to-back victories against AFC playoff contenders. Anything can happen in the final two games of the season, but for now ... 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 >>
Whether you've reached the end of your rope or merely the end of your week, welcome to Whitt's End:
*I know one practice doesn't make a career and, as Bill Parcells says, let's hold off on shipping that bust to Canton, but Cowboys' first-round draft pick Tyron Smith looks like a beast ... More >>
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 >>
10. I'm out of excuses/reasons/explanations. Any theories as to why - still - quarterback Tony Romo and receiver Roy Williams don't seem to be on the same page? Sometimes it's Romo overthrowing him and sometimes it's Williams falling down. Whatever, they just don't click.
9. Of all the lineb ... 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.
Add it all up and - with meanin ... More >>
10. Linebacker Anthony Spencer missed practice after getting his foot stepped on in Wednesday's warm-ups, but it's a day-to-day thing. No biggie. Second-year player Victor Butler took his place and didn't look out of place at all.
9. Rough day for the offense. Tony Romo was harassed int ... More >>
A month from tonight - that's right, tonight - the NFL Draft will commence in prime for the first time.
Currently with the 27th overall pick, what will your Dallas Cowboys do? A safety? Perhaps Southern Cal's Taylor Mays or Texas' Earl Thomas? An offensive lineman for when, not if, Flozell A ... More >>
Whether you're at the end of your rope or merely the end of your week, welcome to Whitt's End:
*I said upon hearing the Josh Howard-for-Caron Butler trade during the NBA All-Star break that the Dallas Mavericks were not only re-shaping their roster but re-booting their playoff prospects. I h ... More >>
Dallas Cowboys' free safety Ken Hamlin missed practice yesterday with a strained left groin.
Or good news?
To me, Hamlin is the weakest link among Dallas' 24 starters (including kickers). The drop-off from Hamlin to Patrick Watkins is smaller than from any other starter to any othe ... More >>
Even Philly fans liked Dallas last night.10. Lots of heroes Sunday night in Philly, but the biggest - smallest - play was made by rookie linebacker Victor Butler. With the Eagles down 7 and facing third-and-10 from Dallas' 33, Donovan McNabb scrambled right into what seemed to be an open f ... More >>
What the eff? Oh, okay, I'm in a good mood. How about a D-ish?When the Dallas Cowboys kick off the regular season in Tampa Bay in T-minus 12 days, their rookies will be all but invisible.
The Cowboys drafted 12 players. Three of those - kicker David Buehler, linebacker Victor But ... More >>
No Terrell Owens. No Pacman Jones. No Michael Vick or Brett Favre or Michael Crabtree. No drama.
To which I say ... Yes!
Last summer the Dallas Cowboys broke camp fat 'n happy and consumed with personal agendas. After a successful training camp at San Antonio's Alamodome in which the fo ... More >>
I know it's only August. It's only pre-season. But it is, after all, football. Tonight at 9 on Channel 11 and 105.3 The Fan we officially begin washing 44-6 out of our mouths.
What will you be watching tonight?
As for me ...
10. Story out of Lincoln, Nebraska of all places - apparently the writer was in Dallas for the Big 12 Media Days - says at Cowboys Stadium there is for sale $800,000 suites in which you can purchase a $90 pizza. That's about $11 a slice by my sportswriter math. However, Dallas Only Dail ... More >>
This is newest Cowboy Jason Williams. I assume. But who really knows?Let me kick off this week with a detailed breakdown of the players the Dallas Cowboys selected on the first day of last weekend's NFL Draft:
