A $100 million cornerback?

Could Asante Samuel get a nine-digit deal? A couple of Samuel’s fellow Pro Bowlers think so, according to Yahoo.com’s Jason Cole. Under the terms of the one-year tender contract Samuel agreed to before last season, the Patriots can’t put the…


Cowboys Awards: Defensive Player of Year

Fifth in a seven-part series … OLB DeMARCUS WARE With all due respect to the rest of the defense, this was an absolute slam dunk. Ware is one of the top 10 players in the game, regardless of position, and…


Dozen Pro Bowlers doesn’t seem right

How in the world can a team with a record number of Pro Bowlers not win a single playoff game? Well, there are a lot of different answers to that question. You can find many in Albert “Einstein” Breer’s Tale…


Game was lost in last minute of first half

The winner wasn’t determined until Giants CB R.W. McQuarters picked off Tony Romo with nine ticks left on the clock. But the game’s key series came in the final minute of the first half. The Cowboys should have been puffing…


Cowboys should hope Boss is big part of game plan

The Cowboys don’t expect the Giants to change their scheme just because Jeremy Shockey has a broken leg. They expect New York to do the same things with Kevin Boss as they did against Shockey. That’s what Roy Williams, who…


Can the Cowboys contain Plax?

Terence Newman was asked that question this afternoon. “The first game, we didn’t,” Newman said. “The second game, we did. The third game, we’ll see what happens.” Of course, the Cowboys had two pretty good defensive players sit out the…


Dr. Z takes four ‘Boys

Sports Illustrated’s Paul Zimmerman tabbed four Cowboys for his All-Pro team, giving Dallas one more selection than the AP’s final tally did. But The Original 81 was not among his picks. Dr. Z took three receivers: The Patriots’ Randy Moss…


Not all cold on Cowboys

Timmy took a couple of fire-back-from-the-bow shots at my guy, NBCSports.com’s Tom E. Curran, on the post right below this one. Maybe Tom isn’t going to declare Wade the modern Lombardi. Know what, though? He does like the Cowboys this…


Everybody but T.O. at practice

T.O. was the only Cowboy not participating in practice. Terry Glenn was the only one not wearing shoulder pads. Other than that, everybody was full go. That includes C Andre Gurode (knee), NT Jay Ratliff (knee), CB Terence Newman (knee),…


Cromartie could have been great fit

With all the recent talk about Bobby Carpenter being a bust, I figured now would be a fine time to discuss other players that were available when the Cowboys drafted Carpenter 18th overall in 2006. It doesn’t take long to…


Cowboys’ D kicks butt vs. raw starting QBs

Superstar columnist Tim Cowlishaw calls for the Dallas defense to dominate tonight. Shouldn’t be too much to ask against a Carolina team that ranks 29th in the league in total offense and is quarterbacked by a kid the Cowboys cut…


Smith vs. Newman

Hall of Fame scribe Rick “Goose” Gosselin wrote about how key WR Steve Smith is to the Panthers’ success. Smith has some interesting history with Pro Bowl CB Terence Newman. Newman’s rookie season came to an embarrassing end when Smith…


Warm, fuzzy moment for first-time Pro Bowlers

Wade Phillips gathered his team after practice and announced the Cowboys’ Pro Bowl selections. There was a whole bunch of hooting and hollering, especially for the guys making their first NFL-paid trips to Hawaii. K Nick Folk got a bunch…


Newman could start Sunday

Wade Phillips is much more optimistic about CB Terence Newman’s availability againt the Eagles after today’s practice. Newman is dealing with toe, foot and knee injuries, but Phillips said he should be able to play Sunday. In fact, Phillips thinks…


Trufant could cost Newman trip to Hawaii

A lot of folks around these parts got fired up by Jon Kitna’s opinion that Marcus Trufant is a better cornerback than Terence Newman. Trufant made Kitna look pretty smart by picking off three passes and running one back for…


Cowboys didn’t quite prove Kitna wrong

LOUIS DeLUCA / DMN Jon Kitna apologized for “breaking the code” during his January chit-chat with a Seattle radio station, the highlights of which ended up on a Valley Ranch bulletin board. However, it’s not like Kitna has to…


James, Kitna squash beef

The drama between Jon Kitna and Bradie James had a happy ending. James refused to shake Kitna’s hand after the coin flip — Terence Newman gave the loudmouth Lions QB a manly hug — but they had a nice chit-chat…


Newman joins captains

Terence Newman joined the captains at midfield for the first time this season. Coincidence? I think not, just like it was no coincidence that T.O. was a captain for the Philly game. Newman and Bradie James resisted the urge to…


Newman offended Lions’ center

Terence Newman said his comments about having the cash for a fine if he gets a shot at Jon Kitna were a joke, but Lions center Dominic Raiola isn’t laughing. Raiola, the anchor of a line that has allowed an…


Wade’s not worried about angry penalties

Bradie James and Terence Newman have let it be known that they’re seeking revenge against Jon Kitna. Newman even said that he had to cash to cover whatever fines come his way if he gets a shot at Kitna. But…


Golly gee, Kitna was just kidding!!

Jon Kitna explained to Detroit reporters that he really didn’t mean any harm when he ripped Bradie James, Terence Newman and the rest of the Cowboys’ defense after the Lions’ win last season. “That was something that unfortunately has been…


Newman’s coming after Kitna’s [rear]!!!

Terence Newman is just a wee bit perturbed about Jon Kitna’s January comments that the Cowboys’ star cornerback doesn’t have Marcus Trufant’s ability. “Basically what it boils down to is you’ve got to watch what you say,” Newman said on…
