Putting the 2014 Off Season in Perspective

In light of the moves this off season, it’s important to look back a few years to really understand the total lack of a plan that has come to define the Dallas Cowboys. It starts with knowing...

The Monte Kiffin Decision

Monte Kiffin may turn out to be a fine addition to the Dallas Cowboys. Certainly, he has the track record to command respect. What bothers me is the lack of direction by this franchise. Jerry...

The Romo Reality Check

I've defended Romo ever since he became a starter and will continue to do so. Yes, he had a bad game. Yes, it's certainly fair to wonder if his performance yesterday is related to his self-doubt....

The Future of this Franchise

Right now, things aren't looking so great for the Dallas Cowboys. It isn't just that they didn't make the playoff but that they got swept by a division rival that looks unbeatable. Sure, the...

Twists and Turns

It seems like a long time ago now, but early in the season, it certainly looked like all the off seasons moves to shore up the defense were paying off. Along with the maturation of Bruce Carter, B...

The Jerry Jones Delusional Syndrome

There is no question that the Cowboys have been hit especially hard this year by injuries. Starters Sean Lee, Barry Church, Jay Ratliff, and Kenyon Coleman have all missed significant time, and...

Where's the hope?

I've never been one to think Tony Romo was anything less than an elite quarterback. I have no doubt Jason Witten and Demarcus Ware will go straight into the Hall of Fame and the Circle of Honor. I...

killer Kowalski

He's got a big frame (6'3" or 6'4" is what he's listed at). But his weight is only 301 lbs or so. Does any one know if he's added more mass in the off season?

post stuck in "draft" mode. Help.

I have a draft post that is stuck in draft mode. it also says it's "Hidden." No matter how many times I try to publish it, it stays in draft mode. I have no idea how it got hidden or how to...

Jason Garrett might as well have a lifetime contract: he’ll be here that long.

OK, I admit it. I kind of love Jason Garrett. Something tells me he's the perfect coach for the Cowboys. He is also a de facto GM. But more about that later. What got me thinking about Garrett...

Table formatting questions

1. How do you combine cells and then center align the data in that new cell, both vertically and horizontally? 2. How do you color an entire row in a table? 3. How do you color an entire column in...

Look for a Significant Defensive Improvement in 2012

Right up front, I have to tell you that I was for going all in on offense. It wasn't that a didn't think the defense could be improved. It's just that there were so many problems on the defense,...

Blogging the Boys Should Get Media Credentials. Period.

Tom Ryle wrote an excellent post, which isn't surprising. The posts by the first pagers and a LOT of the fan posts are not just good and not just worth reading. Often, they are funny. Most...

Romo and the Super Bowl Question

I’ve never understood the idea that playing in a Super Bowl is the be-all, end-all of rating a quarterback. Is it important? Yes, no question. But then let’s consider the following starting...

does anyone know about formatting tables on fanposts?

I want to put lines around tables and maybe even have shading of table cells but I can't find any instructions on this website that cover this issue. thanks.

What forever changed my view of the NFL draft

Like just about everyone else in the Blogging The Boys community, I slavishly followed draft boards and mock drafts over the last few weeks. In fact, since I discovered Blogging The Boys less than...

Matt Johnson scouting reports

Here are two snippets about the Cowboys fourth round draft choice, Matt Johnson. The first comes from the Sports Illustrated Vault: Safety Matt Johnson, who missed most of the season's second...

The Garrett/Ryan Claiborne Vision

Like most of us, I really didn't see the Morris Claiborne move coming. I thought Mike Jenkins and Brandon Carr would make a fine tandem. Jenkins played through a lot of pain last year, which was...

Taking the Dallas Offense to the Next Level

CotySaxman did a second great post on wide receivers, including a very cool sortable grid that allows you to compare our receivers with league leaders on various dimensions. It made me wonder what...

Why not take a receiver early in the draft?

I thought losing Robinson was a mistake. It's not that I lack confidence in Austin or Bryant. I think both of them have 80-catch, 1,300-yard potential. I'm also anxious to see what Holmes,...

Best Player Available? Not Yet.

I love the premise that Jason Garrett has for conducting a draft properly: sign free agents to plug needs so that you can draft the best player available. And, based upon what we saw last year,...

Lawyering Up

I don't pretend to know NFL salary cap rules. But it does seem just a little bit curious that the NFL waited until the day before free agency before telling the Cowboys that they had violated the...

Should the Cowboys Go All In This Year or Have Patience?

As usual, I'm ambivalent. On the one hand, I am hopeful that Jason Garrett can usher in a new era of talent acquisition wisdom. After all, in his first year, he got rid of a LOT of deadwood and...

Young Pitchers: the Statistical Analysis Fallacy

I've seen a lot of people look at the statistical lines of young minor league pitchers and try to draw some kind of conclusion about their chances in the majors. There are many problems with that...

Offseason Priorities

The challenge for Jerry Jones, or any general manager, is living within parameters. One parameter is the salary cap. Another is the free market where free agents can decide where to go. Another...

Hail Mary or a 5 Year Plan?

OCC and others have argued well that we Cowboy fans and Jerry Jones should avoid quick fixes, like the trade for Roy Williams. But with $20MM in cap space burning a hole in Jerry's pocket, it's...

The Biggest Questions for the 2012 Yankees

Well, now that the Super Bowl is over, we can all get down to the serious business of second guessing the GM moves of Brian Cashman. For the most part, the Yankees are bringing back a lot of the...

Why can't ends rush the passer in the 3-4?

Since the season ended, I've been facinated by ebb and flow of opinions on this blog about what we need to do to shore up our defense. A key issue is getting more pressure on the QB. Yes we need...
