Emmitt James Smith grew up wanting to be a Dallas Cowboy, but he far exceeded that aspiration. And now, after retiring, Emmitt has welcomed the opportunity to explore his roots.
Almost an entire generation of potential fans in Los Angeles has been lost to soccer, basketball, the beach, going out to dinner and reading. Speaking for most of the populace, we don't miss the NFL one bit.
At the Super Bowl in Dallas, they've pulled together a Texas comfort-food menu that would make even the toughest cowboy coo over the beautifully decadent options.
Franchise-defining decisions often happen due to fate. I vividly remember all the defensive players that we were targeting in the draft. Then the time came and there was only one player name staring at us.
The Rooney Rule was passed to reverse decades of lack of opportunities for minorities as head coaches in the NFL. It has operated, on the surface, with good results. However, in taking a closer look, there are areas for improvement.

It's Dallas week, and much as I wish the Eagles could've played them at least once earlier in the season, at least we'll enjoy an exciting end to the season, with 3 divisional games in the next 4 weeks.
Remember 2 weeks ago when everyone thought how overrated and horrible the Cowboys were? Apparently one good win is all it takes to get back in the good graces of the media, fans and odds makers.
Kevin Love of Minnesota scored 30 points and grabbed 30 rebounds in one game. It hadn't happened in 28 years. So what do you call 30 and 30 in the same game? "Playing against the Knicks."
