Dez Bryant Wants Top Wide Receiver Money and it’s Making me SICK

Dez_Bryant_at_training_camp copy

Dez Bryant wants money. You could have woken me up this morning and told me the sun rose in the east and that my grass is green and I would have been more surprised then hearing that Dez Bryant wants something. Sure, he has enjoyed a very impressive NFL career thus far: amassing 4,000 plus yards and 35 plus touchdowns. That’s all well and good but does the Cowboys front office really think he deserves top WR money? There is more to being a top guy than stats. Hey Dez, maybe show Jerry Jones you aren’t a whiney P.O.S and maybe he will sign you to an extension. MAYBE.

Until that day comes straighten up and be a leader for your team, Tony Romo can’t do it alone.



Cowboys Doing Cowboy Things: Sign Brandon “The Oldest College Graduate in History” Weeden to 2 Year Contract

SourceIRVING, Texas — The Dallas Cowboys have agreed with former Cleveland Browns quarterback Brandon Weeden on a two-year deal, a source told

Weeden visited with the coaches at Valley Ranch on Monday and will be the third quarterback under contract behind Tony Romo and Kyle Orton.

Brandon Weeden has passed for 23 touchdowns and 26 interceptions since being drafted in the first round in 2012.

 The Cowboys have not carried a third quarterback on the roster since 2011, when they had Stephen McGee behind Romo and Jon Kitna, but would appear committed that way early in the 2014 offseason.


I’d love to sit in on the Cowboys draft and free agent meetings. Do they just go through lists of players that they know will infuriate their fan base and decide to sign them? Because I have to be honest that’s what it seems like they’re doing. Whenever you pick up the Browns sloppy seconds you really need to start reevaluating your decision making skills. Maybe Jerry Jones should worry less about his eye glasses getting cleaned and worry more about fielding a team that isn’t the dictionary definition of mediocre. Or maybe he should just keep doing what he’s doing so the rest of us can get a good laugh. SIX MORE YEARS! SIX MORE YEARS!

Cowboys Doing Cowboy Things: Sign Kicker Dan Bailey to 7 Year Extension

IRVING, Texas — Long known as a team that saw kickers as interchangeable pieces, the Dallas Cowboys have signed Dan Bailey to a seven-year deal, the team announced Thursday.

Bailey, who turns 26 in Sunday, was set to be a restricted free agent. His renegotiated deal runs through 2020.

The Cowboys were likely to use the second-round tender on Bailey worth $2.124 million before striking the long-term deal.

Signed as an undrafted free agent in 2011, Bailey has made 88 of 98 field goal attempts in his three seasons, missing just four kicks in the last two seasons. He made 28 of 30 tries in 2013, including six of seven from 50 yards or more. In his first two seasons Bailey made 5-of-9 attempts from 50-yards or more. He also had 57 touchbacks.

Bailey has kicked a franchise-record eight game-winning field goals since joining the Cowboys.

The only other time the Cowboys put a serious investment into a kicker came in 2006 when they signed Mik Vanderjagt to a three-year, $5.4 million deal that included a $2.5 million signing bonus. Vanderjagt was cut that season after poor form.

Since 2011, only Josh Scobee of the Jacksonville Jaguars has a better percentage than Bailey (91.0 to 90.8). Justin Tucker has made 68 of 74 attempts in 2012-13.

With 11 more made attempts, Bailey would qualify for the all-time percentage leader. Vanderjagt is currently the most active kicker in NFL history, converting 86.5% of his kicks.


Because THAT’S the problem. You haven’t been good in so long because your kicker didn’t have a long enough deal. Bravo, JJ. The funny thing is Dan Bailey is actually a great kicker, but when you have a chance to knock Jerry Jones and the Cowboys, you take it. And unless Dan Bailey becomes the first human in history to stop Tony Romo from doing Tony Romo things, the Cowboys will miss out on the playoffs with a week 17 loss yet again next year.

Selena Gomez’s Performance Was Missing One Thing: R. Kelly in an Apron

I’ll give Selena a little credit here. Her performance was tolerable, but when I think of football on Thanksgiving day, Selena Gomez doesn’t come to my mind. I have a hard time believing any rabid football fan is also a huge Selena Gomez fan. Since she was already operating at a disadvantage, why not bring in the hottest thing in music today to spice up your performance?




R. Kelly is a musical triple threat. Sex, passion and unpredictability. Is he gonna show up on stage and hump Selena Gomez while wearing a beautiful white apron while millions of Americans are eating Thanksgiving dinner? I hope so, because that’s what people pay to see. If R. Kelly did every major halftime show until the end of the time I’d die a happy man. You just can’t teach his talent.

Cowboys Fans Can’t Win

Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo will miss OTAs after undergoing surgery to remove a cyst on his back, according to various reports. He’s still expected to return in time for training camp, and the surgery was characterized as “minor. “If this was the regular season and I had to play next week, I could,” Romo told the Dallas Morning News on Monday night. “This is just about being smart. “That’s why I did it now. This will have no effect on training camp. No way will it have an impact. And I still think there’s a good chance I’m on the field for mini-camp.” Romo, one of the most-scrutinized quarterbacks in the entire league, will face even more examination this year after signing a $108 million contract extension in March and with the front office publicly stating that Romo can lead the Cowboys to a championship. Romo, who’s expected to miss at least three weeks, said his back had been nagging him this off-season. The team website writes that Romo hasn’t been participating in off-season throwing sessions with the team, and he hasn’t played golf like usual. “It was something I felt like was nagging me just enough,” Romo told the Morning News. “I wanted to make sure to get it done now. I wanted to take care of it earlier rather than later … “It was not much of anything. I just went in and had them look at it. It was more of an ache than anything. I just thought, ‘Well, it’s something I’d rather not feel.’” For this week’s OTAs, it’s expected that backup Kyle Orton will lead the first team offense.” –CBSSports

Talk about a kick in the nuts. You know when every Cowboys fan read that Romo was having surgery they were telling each other how much they hate coloring and electrocuting themselves all over Texas (I’m assuming every Cowboys fan is like my friend). Have no fear Cowboys fans, he’ll be back for training camp, cyst-less and full of brand new ideas that will ruin your entire season. If they weren’t the owner and quarterback of the largest franchise in sports, respectively, I truly think Jerry Jones and Romo could go on tour as a comedy team. Jerry Jones comes out to warm up the crowd: “Hey kids, you want to see $108 million dissappear?”. Romo comes out, attempts to throw a pass to Jones but it sails over his head and knocks some lady unconscious, then sprints off stage. I’d pay top dollar to see that show. All jokes aside, do Cowboys fans really expect anything from this group? I know Jones had his success with the greatest gay athlete of all-time, Troy Aikman, in the early 90s, but that was literally 20 years ago. He’s going to be 100 years old soon. And anyone who continues to support someone who broke up with Carrie Underwood is bat shit crazy. If I’ve said it once I’ve said it once, if his off the field decision making is shaky, he’s going to drop an important snap and throw the ball to the other team.

I can’t completely bash the Cowboys, though. There are a few silver linings. The great Kyle Orton will take Romo’s place until he returns. To be honest, I’m just happy to hear Kyle Orton is still alive. The fact that he isn’t face down in a ditch with some hooker is absolutely amazing. At least after this year, the Cowboys can wash their hands with Romo and start from scratch…oh wait, you paid him $108 million over the next six years! Enjoy the cheerleaders. SIX MORE YEARS! SIX MORE YEARS! SIX MORE YEARS!
