Irvin also has had roles in the TV series “Burn Notice” and the movie “The Longest Yard.”
Here’s a preview of the episode: Read


The latest NFL power rankings are out and it’s not good news for Cowboys fans. The Cowboys range from 13 to 18 in the three power rankings we took a look at. has the Cowboys ranked at 18 falling three spots from last week. Here’s their analysis:
The hits keep coming -- except this isn't like the 1999 Rangers with Pudge, Palmeiro and Juan Gone. Nope, these are the IR kind. Lance Dunbar -- he of the University of North Texas (a fine, fine institution a certain hack may or may not have attended) -- is now out for the season. Sean Lee is in the league's concussion protocol. The good news is ... Well, there isn't too much good news, other than the fact Dallas is hanging in games. At least the Patriots are coming to town. That should go well. has the Cowboys coming in at 13, falling two spots from their ranking last week. Here’s what they had to say:
The Cowboys' offense has been fine without Tony Romo and Dez Bryant. But the defense has no turnovers and has allowed 438.0 yards per game the past two games.
FOX Sports has the Cowboys ranked at 15, dropping four spots from their ranking last week. Here’s their analysis:
Brandon Weeden hasn’t been the reason for the two-game losing streak, but the offense is limited with him at the helm. With Greg Hardy (suspension) and Randy Gregory (injury) set to return soon, the defense has potential to carry the team if Sean Lee can stay on the field -- until Tony Romo and Dez Bryant return.

One thing that’s consistent is the injuries to the Cowboys are definitely affecting the product on the field. For their sake let’s hope some of their key players make their way back onto the field soon. Read

When you’re a kicker, especially one that is as consistent as Dan Bailey, you typically don’t cause much commotion in the world of social media.  Well a few weeks back Bailey did just that.
When the Cowboys played the Giants in the Sunday Night Football season opener, Dan Bailey lined up to kick a field goal  and there was an overlay graphic displayed on the screen with his headshot.  Normal enough, if you watch football you’ve seen this graphic or one like it hundreds of times.  But, you’ve probably never seen this graphic with the players eyes closed.
Yep, the below graphic somehow made its way into the Sunday Night Football broadcast and nope no way the Twitterverse was going to let this one slide. Read^tfw^tfw^tfw^tfw^tfw
NBC spokesman Dan Masonson had an understandable explanation according to this article ( on the Dallas Morning News website.  “"The video headshot, which is about 20 seconds in length, was rolled too early," Masonson said, "so when Bailey lined up for the kick the video had reached the end and the headshot was frozen on the image which appeared on the screen."
Totally reasonable explanation, these things happen.  That being said, we couldn’t pass up the opportunity to have some fun with it and have Dan try and contribute to this week’s broadcast.  Take a look at this video.


We all know Tony Romo loves golf, and he’s pretty good at it. Romo has attempted to qualify for the U.S. Open in the past but recently gave up competitive golf to focus on football and help keep his back healthy.
One family member, however, has not given up golf. Tony’s dad, Ramiro Romo, has qualified to play in his first United States Golf Association event. According to a source with the USGA, Ramiro has been trying to qualify for years.
He will be one of 156 players contending for the 61st U.S. Senior Amateur Championship trophy at Hidden Creek Golf Club in Egg Harbor Township, N.J. Sept. 26-Oct. 1.
Sounds like there are some pretty solid competitive genes in the Romo family. We’ll keep an eye out and let you know how he does. Read
