Whitt’s End: 11.16.12

Stop me if you’ve heard this one before: the Cowboys’ draft class sucks. Can’t call it a bust yet, but you can say every player drafted back in April – except for Morris Claiborne – is a disappointment.

It wasn’t pretty, but it was pertinent. Somehow, some way, the Cowboys had to win this game.



Whitt’s End: 11.9.12

Texas A&M fans are really puffing out their shaved heads and looking for apologies from doubters in the wake of quarterback Johnny Manziel making them relevant.

Four More Years… Of A Very Athletic President

The really important takeaway from the 2012 presidential election is that we’ve voted for four more years of an athletic and very sports-minded guy in the White House.


Dallas Cowboys v Atlanta Falcons

The Cowboys under Jason Garrett are 16-16, including 4-9 since Thanksgiving. Their repetitive errors are chronic and, at this point, they appear fatal.

We worship our athletes. We sometimes boo our athletes. And often we forget that under the helmet or behind the uniform our athletes are human beings as well.

Mavs owner Mark Cuban on the star-studded Lakers before the game: “I don’t know. I don’t care. I just hope they suck.” For one night, he got his wish.

For the first time in 34 years calling Cowboys games on the radio, Brad Sham on Sunday angrily suggested a player be benched. Yep: Dez Bryant.

How devastating is the loss of Sean Lee to the Cowboys? It’s worse than the Ravens losing Ray Lewis. That’s because Lee is Dallas’ best defensive player…

Terrible Tuesday: Sean Lee’s Season Is Done And So Might Be The Cowboys

In short, the Cowboys losing Lee is akin to the Texans losing J.J. Watt. And even more damaging than the Ravens losing Ray Lewis.


Dallas Cowboys v Carolina Panthers

Good day for Cowboys’ special teams for a change. Dan Bailey nails 4 field goals and kick coverage is led by sound, athletic tackles by Lance Dunbar and Eric Frampton. Small steps.

You want progress. You’re fed process. It’s frustrating being a Cowboys fan these days. And I know it’s maddening for head coach Jason Garrett, who is meticulous, disciplined, intelligent and accountable.
