Photoblog: Giants vs. Cowboys Game Photos, Part One

As I posted previously, we were on the second row of the upper deck, so we had a great view.

Unfortunately, much of the view was taken up by the four, um, “ladies” in front of us. I’m fairly confident that they were all ex-strippers, and I suspect that they might have looked good at some point in the 1980’s. Let’s just say they were past their prime.

They were all very drunk (with perhaps some other chemicals involved), …

Photoblog: Giants vs. Cowboys Pregame

This past weekend, I attended my first NFL game, and more importantly, my first Dallas Cowboys game. The wife bought me a pair of tickets for my birthday a few months back, and I was nice enough to bring her with me.

To say it was a different environment from a Longhorn game is a huge understatement. While there is certainly drinking going on before (and during) a college game, the number of truly smashed fans is relatively small. At …

The Cowboys’ Problems Go Beyond Jessica Simpson

Certainly, injuries have …

That’s a considerable amount to give up, although the move puts Roy and TO split wide in the same offense, and moves Patrick Crayton back to the slot where he should be more effective. With this receiving corps (don’t …

Dallas Cowboys in Real Trouble

Let me start this post by saying that given the status of my fantasy team, I have no real right to make projections on NFL teams. But I am going to do so anyways.

With the loss of Tony Romo for a month and Felix Jones for a week or two, the Cowboys have a problem. When you take an offense that was good, but not great, and remove two of its star performers, you’ve got a recipe for mediocrity.…
