When is an athlete’s personal life fair game for the media? If a player’s personal life is impacting his on-field life, it inches closer to being news of an important sort.
The Fan has learned of another piece of news that the Cowboys hope will impact the Thursday night outcome in Chicago against the Bears
They’ve come to be called “FishTips,’’ and with the guidance of insiders at Valley Ranch, they help me “gameplan’’ for this week’s game
As the Cowboys filled their day in The Big Apple with anxious inactivity, they were also able to review the game plan that they hoped would give them just this result.
Team sources tell me that Brent has been nothing but a scout-team participant this week, and that he hasn’t even elevated himself to the second team.
The Cowboys insist that their focus is on Sunday night’s game against the Giants and not the myriad sidebars that go along with having the high profile of a 7-3 team.
Dez Bryant’s desire to be a ‘Cowboy for life’ has not faded. But on Wednesday he made it clear that through the frustration of waiting on a contract extension, he’d like to make certain that commitment is reciprocated.
But on Sunday, the Cowboys simply needs to handle lowly Jacksonville, which they did by a score of 31-17.
On the eve of kick off, a massive collection of Cowboys quotes from the Saturday Fan Forum outside of Wembley. This is extensive, raw and “every moving blade of grass,” as I know the Fan Fan likes it:
Cowboys owner Jerry Jones has no intention of playing a “home” game in London, and that shouldn’t prevent another Super Bowl from coming to Arlington.
The Cowboys’ Friday in London began with QB Tony Romo working against air with a high level of accuracy and will later be filled with the team’s only day of group sightseeing.
Jack Crawford is a relatively low-profile Cowboys defensive lineman. But this week, in his home country, he’s reached a new level of celebrity.
