I am always amazed at how well dressed Belichick always seems to be for games. Tom Landry has nothing on him!

1989 - One semester remaining until graduation and completion of one of the most significant milestones in our lives. Although joy was experienced in preparations for life after high school as well as events such as the Berlin Wall coming down, the end of the Cold War and Colin Powell being appointed as the Joint Chief of Staff, there was also sadness through the loss of comedian Lucille Ball, bullrider Lane Frost and the two Nevada youth who listened too closely to the Judas Priest album "Stained Class". Other interesting events and milestones for the year are listed below: Jan 24th - Serial killer Ted Bundy is executed in Florida electric chair Jan 29th - Barbara Harris appointed 1st Female US Episcopal Bishop Feb 26th - Dallas Cowboys fire Coach Tom Landry after a 29-year career Mar 24th - Exxon's Worst US oil spill - 11.3 million gallons off Alaska Apr 28th - Iran protests sale of "Satanic Verses" by Salman Rushdie May 9th - VP Quayle says in United *** College Fund speech: "What a waste it is to ...

Griese Proved Skeptics Wrong On Way To Pro Hall Of Fame By Cooper Rollow Chicago Tribune CUTLINE: BOB GRIESE, MIAMI'S BESPECTACLED QUARTERBACK, SCRAMBLES OUT OF A CRUMPLING POCKET AGAINST THE SEATTLE SEAHAWKS IN 1977. CUTLINE: TOM LANDRY: COWBOY COACH A smallish, injury-prone quarterback who was legally blind, drank milkshakes while his teammates were drinking beer and threw passes only when necessary has been inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame. Bob Griese, who led the Miami Dolphins to nine winning seasons and victories in Super Bowls VII and VIII, was enshrined yesterday in Canton, Ohio, with Tom Landry, Franco Harris, Jack Lambert, Buck Buchanan, Ted Hendricks and Bob St. Clair. Griese, who became famous as the first pro quarterback to wear glasses and for his poise in leading a classic ball-control offense, was elected to the Hall last January, exactly one decade after his retirement as a player. He had a remarkable 14-year Dolphin career in which he survived frequent injuries. ``What does a ...
Tom Landry and Jimmy Johnson wouldn't be having this stuff if they were the coaches. FED UP 100% it's a JOKE!
I like the Cowboys because of Tom Landry, Michael Irvin, Drew Pearson, Tony Dorsett, Troy Aichman, Emmitt Smith
Let me just start by saying this is gonna be a very long year..I'm so glad by bro Zach Lawrence got me playing fantasy football for really the first time ever to take my mind off of my depressing team even for a minute. My favorite team..the team I grew up cheering for since I was old enough to watch..the team once coached by Tom Landry then Jimmy Johnson..the team that use to represent a winner as America's Team with Hall of Famers and ultimate champions like Roger Staubach, Randy White, Calvin Hill, Ed Too Tall Jones, Tony Dorsett, Troy Aikman, Michael Irvin, Emmitt Smith, Moose Johnston and Jay Novacek, Larry Allen and Charles Haley..Darren Woodson and Deion Sanders..just to name a few..is a JOKE! A flat out JOKE!! Jerry Jones has turned our team..one of the proudest franchise's in all of sports..into a complete joke. A team that gets outnumbered by 49er fans..or maybe it just seemed that way because their was nothing to cheer about..at home in our opener in our new monstrosity of a home "Jerry Wor ...
I'll give you that as the second biggest cowboys mistake following jones firing Tom Landry
has not watched a Dallas Cowboys game since the legendary Tom Landry was replaced in 1988. They were truly America's Team back then.
they were my fave team during the Tom Landry / Roger Staubach era. I miss ed too tall jones, Tony Dorsett, & the others.
25 years later, recalls the last hours of Tom Landry's days as coach. http:/…
Tom Landry did it in '70(?) with Craig Morton and Roger Staubach. They subbed in/out after every play for a time.
Don't wear a fedora. Just don't do it. Tom Landry was the last person who could rock one. Just stop.

DALLAS, TX-August 07, 2014. News Flash Just finished reading an article about the state of Texas vs Dallas Cowboys. Since the Dallas Cowboys have always considered themselves "America's Team". The state of Texas is asking all Americans to donate $1.00 to the "Buy Out Jerry Jones Fund", so they can get rid of the owner, bring Tom Landry back from the Super Bowl in the sky, and return the Cowboys to the super dominate team that they once thought they were. So far, they have raised 0 dollars. Cause everyone knows, Tom Landry will not leave his special place, the Zombie Apocalypse will reclaim the owner, and the Dallas Cowboys have never been worth 2 cents, much less a dollar. This will be the year of The Washington Redskins!

Today's selection -- from The Last Cowboy by Mark Ribowsky. In 1942, future hall of fame football Coach Tom Landry was an eighteen-year-old attending college. His older brother Robert had enlisted in the U.S. Army Air Corps and was serving as a bomber pilot in World War II. (Tom would later serve as a bomber pilot as well.) Three years older than Tom, Robert was the golden boy -- outgoing and magnetic. Tom was more reserved, and worshipped his older brother: "Then, with the 1942 season in full bloom and [Tom] Landry moving up on the [University of Texas] jayvee depth chart, a bitter wind came blowing in from across the Atlantic, ... ending ... his cloistered existence and tearing out a piece of his heart forever. "On an early November day that year, with Thanksgiving a few weeks away, a special-delivery letter reached [Tom's father] Ray Landry down in [his hometown of] Mission, Texas. As soon as he took it from the messenger and saw 'War Department: The Adjutant General's Office' on the masthead -- a head ...
"You can’t run for office in Texas unless you acknowledge the existence of a “Supreme Being.”"//Does that include Tom Landry?

i chose the Cowboys when it was Tom Landry and Tony Dorsett ed too tall Jones and Randy White Id never heard of Jerry Jones
Our close friend has a busy day planned in his honor - breakfast with Tom Landry - golf with Darrell Royal, Payne Stewart, Ben Hogan, Pat Summerall and Byron Nelson - a batting lesson from Ted Williams - a driving lesson from No. 3 - a singing lesson from Don Meredith and a place in the radio booth tonight next to Mark Holtz - We are going to miss you down here Mr. Richard Durrett - you were a hall of famer in everyone's scorebook at TCU, The Dallas News' SportsDay, at ESPN and for your kids
Some random shots from our Thursday Morning Prayer Breakfast at Harbor Hills, with special guest speaker Coach Gene Stallings offering words of inspiration and encouragement. Along with his numerous humanitarian achievements and awards, Coach Stallings was a member of Coach Paul "Bear" Bryant's "Junction Boys" who were immortalized in a movie about their team’s transformation, and he was the Assistant Coach for the Dallas Cowboys under Tom Landry during their Super Bowl XII victory. Joining Coach Stallings this morning’s breakfast were Father Tom Trees, the Rector for St. James Episcopal Church in Leesburg, giving the opening blessing, and Pastor Sidney Brock, the Lead Pastor of the Heritage Community Church in Fruitland Park wrapping up the morning with some final thoughts.
Just finished watching the movie Black Sunday about a hijacked Goodyear blimp with a bomb crashing into the stadium of the 1979 Super Bowl. ( my worst nightmare ). The game was between Cowboys and Steelers. Used the real cowboys showed Tom Landry, Roger Staubach, Golden Richards had forgotten about him, crazy Ray and all the old school,Cowboys. Very cool
Hearing telling the stories of Tom Landry & Roger Staubach in the is priceless...tune in now to
Momma memory # 2 : the very first football game i ever watched, was with my mom. Super Bowl XXVII, The Dallas Cowboys vs. the Buffalo Bills in which the Cowboys won 52-17. i remember us watching that game on one of those old floor wood cabinet type tv's. Most of the time it's the dad and son that share a love of sports together, for me it was me and momma. My momma was a cowboy's fan, just like her father was, i'm not lying when i say i came out the womb with a blue star on my chest. We watched 2 more cowboy Super Bowls after that and it's memories i'll have, of cheering for the 'boys on sundays and in Super Bowls, of her telling me about Roger Staubach and Tom Landry and cowboy's of her time. sharing something that she shared with her dad that i now share with my children who were named after the cowboys. i got to watch one last game with my mother before she passed, it was a losing effort to the redskins on thanksgiving, she wasn't awake much for the game but it was still a good memory for me.

sports quotes "Last year we couldn't win at home and we were losing on the road. My failure as a coach was that I couldn't think of anyplace else to play." - Harry Neale, professional hockey coach "Blind people come to the ballpark just to listen to him pitch." - Reggie Jackson commenting on Tom Seaver "I'm working as hard as I can to get my life and my cash to run out at the same time.

Currently weeping right now as I watch Tom Landry A Football Life will the Cowboys ever be that dominate
I can't believe they're destroying Tom Landry stadiums awesome natural grass.. Turf only means more injuries and turf toe! 👎😔
Everyone who is a King Of The Hill fan knows Mike Judge would often throw out things in the show to "hint" where Arlen was (or not)...once he showed it in Central Texas but said the Mexican border was 4 hours away (MAYBE from San Antonio)...Or Houston was 3 hours away (and Dallas was too!! but Dallas is 3 hours from Houston)..also showed a 409 area code number (555) on the side of a Strickland Propane truck..409 NPA is Galveston and SE Texas (Beaumont area)..however, CW network just showed an episode where they were listening to a Tom Landry Middle School football game.on 740!!! really?? KTRH?? At least they could have shown a Class C or ex-band frequency :)
Ohh Tom Landrys hat And it's autographed.to Herman's dry cleaning best wishes Tom Landry.. Why don't you buy it?? I can't buy that...only management type guys on big salaries like me can afford things like that. Huh guys like me.I'm a guy like me.
Mission Police are investigating a bank robbery that happened today at the Inter National Bank on 714 Tom Landry when a 40 year old unidentified man went inside the bank carrying a Whataburger cup and ordered everyone to the ground. The suspect fled with an undisclosed amount of money.
The firing of Tom Landry n Jimmy Johnson, retirement of Aikman and Smith = the saddest days of the Cowboys
Seriously, who's the coach in the buffalo wild wings commercial. I would say Tom Landry if he were alive.
Best parallel I can think of is Tom Landry, the legendary former coach of the Dallas Cowboys
Parents should judge kids, not just coaches By Dan Bauer Legendary Coach Tom Landry said, "A coach is someone who tells you what you don't want to hear, who has you see what you don't want to see, s
love it! My great uncle Tom Landry was a coach and I still dislike the Cowboys
As a Cowboys head coach I honestly put Jimmy Johnson ahead of Tom Landry it took Johnson 4 years to do what Landry did in 11 seasons and that's win a Super Bowl and Johnson also repeated it took Landry 6 years to even win another Super Bowl. I know Landry coached in 5 but 2 wins and 29 years of coaching for them doesn't sound like Mount Rushmore of coaching to me I respect everything Tom Landry did for the game of football but if you coach a team for 29 years and only win 2 Super Bowls??? That's only top 5 to me with or at it's highest would only be for his longevity.
Jerry Jones: "What's the big deal with Coach Cal & the 'one-and-done' thing. That's longer than Tom Landry lasted after I bought the team."
Perhaps the toughest call for a coach is weighing what is best for an individual against what is best for the team. – Tom Landry
Tom Landry was the best football coach there ever was..
A Coach.. tells u what u don't want to hear. Who has u see what u don't want to see, so u can be what u always knew u could be-Tom Landry
how can Jerry Jones fire Tom Landry and Jimmie Johnson yet he won't fire Jason Garrett?
It was Jimmie Johnson's team he ran I don't know what was Jerry worst Idea, fire Jimmie or fire Tom Landry
Wish I could've been back home today to honor this man: Dale Smith, retiring after 38 years as the pastor of Colleyville Presbyterian Church in Texas. (Photo: Jonathan E. Smith) The church has never had another senior pastor. That's a remarkable tenure anywhere, but especially in a church (and even 9 years longer than Tom Landry was "the only head coach the Dallas Cowboys have ever had"). Wonderful guy, a serious pastor with a great sense of humor. I was never formally part of his flock, but he devoted a lot of time to me, turned me on to mind-bending theology, and showed great hospitality. Just before Christmas one year, I popped up unannounced at his house on a cold Saturday night. I had a gift and was wearing a green Santa hat with the point straight up. He met me at the door in an apron and holding a big knife. He was cooking for his wife, as he always did on Saturdays, and invited me in and insisted I stay. I did. There sat the *three* of us for a romantic candlelight dinner. It felt awkward at first ...
"As far as the east is from the west, so far has he removed our transgressions from us." --Psalm 103:12 When a reporter once asked former Cowboys running back Walt Garrison if he had ever seen legendary Dallas Cowboys Coach Tom Landry smile, he replied, "No, but I was only there nine years." The first few years Landry coached in Dallas, he had little to smile about. The new Cowboys expansion team barely won a game and, shortly after his arrival, the country suffered a tragic blow when President John F. Kennedy was assassinated. The dark cloud of Kennedy's assassination would hang over Dallas for years. It was an open wound that didn't seem to heal. But this all changed when Landry led the Dallas Cowboys to their first Super Bowl win in 1972. The city that was once known as the city that killed JFK became the home of the Super Bowl champions, the Dallas Cowboys! As I thought about this story, it made me wonder, do you ever feel like you have a dark cloud hanging over your life? Is there something in your p ...
I want the Telly Savalas/Tom Landry lovechild on the BW3 commercials to be feasted on by walkers. With plenty of sauce.
Tom Landry, coach of the Dallas Cowboys, once said, “The job of a football coach is to make men do what they don’t want to do, in order to achieve what they’ve always wanted to be.”
Good day FB peeps. 2 things I have to say and I'm OUT: Isn't this missing Malayasian airliner beginning to have an weird resemblence to the ABC drama, LOST? And wondering WHY the Cowboys picked up Brandon Weeden. In just 20 starts he is 5-15. This kid was receiving DEATH THREATS as the QB for Cleveland Browns. What EXACTLY is his role with the COWBOYS. And I'll add a 3rd thing.why is it that OWNER Jerry Jones was SO quick to fire and get rid of LEGENDARY COWBOYS Coach Tom Landry, but can't find it in his heart to GET RID OF and FIRE Jason Garrett? Have a GREAT day everyone!

I remember what Tom Landry, the former Dallas Cowboy said, " When you are winning you are teaching, when you are losing, you are learning."
I did not know John Elway was GM for the Broncos. Explains a lot. I think Drew Pearson or Calvin Hill would make an excellent GM for Dallas. There are too many decision-makers for Dallas who know absolutely nothing about strategically building a winning team. Tex Shram and Tom Landry had a gift for doing so. Jerry Jones unfortunately, does not have that gift. A good business man surrounds himself with talented people. Why does he get this in every area accept where the Cowboys are concerned?

I did not realize Jerry Jones fired Tom Landry the day after he bought the team.
Jerry Jones of Dallas says he firing Tom Landry
Jerry Jones firing Tom Landry for Jimmy Johnson is overrated. Jerry Jones also fired maybe the best GM in NFL history for himself.
Jerry Jones fired Tom Landry the second he bought the Cowboys. That mentality shows you why their success is meh.
25 years after purchasing the Jerry Jones says he shouldn't have been so quick to fire Tom Landry.
can't believe it's been 25 years. Jerry Jones talks Tom Landry firing
Even if Jerry Jones wanted to start over with his roster, the Dallas Cowboys owner and general manager says it's not an option. "You can't do what I did in 1989 because of the contracts and cap," Jones said Monday at the NFL scouting combine. "The system automatically creates about a third turnover, but it also creates contractually for clubs a situation where you cannot just strip it. You couldn't even field a team with the hits against your cap by canceling the contracts." When Jones bought the franchise 25 years ago Tuesday, the team was a mess. The Cowboys were coming off three straight losing seasons after decades of excellence under Coach Tom Landry and needing an injection of talent. Dallas used its best asset, Herschel Walker, in a trade that remade the franchise. The Cowboys also had the No. 1 pick in the draft and selected quarterback Troy Aikman. By the 1992 season, Dallas won the first of three Super Bowls in four years. Jones also did not have to worry about a salary cap in 1989. The Cowboys ...

SHOCKED: 1961. Hank Stram (Coach, Dallas Texans) is trying to convince Tom Landry (Coach, Dallas Cowboys) to take a closer look at the zone defense ... and this a decade before Landry abandons 'keys' and dumbs down his system and before Lamar Hunt moves the Dallas Texans to Kansas City. The groomed, quaffed talking heads on ESPN tell us some college hack invented zone in "the rockin' 90's". All the strict defensive backfields, 3-4 / 4-3 were created by old AFL / NFL head coaches - back when football was a strategic, team sport and not an emotive, song-and-dance spectacle. Zone was created as early as 1949 when Tom Landry played backfield with the Giants (Lombardi was at West Point) and created the "Landry Defense" (comment, per Frank Gifford, THE GREATEST GAME EVER PLAYED).
In the history of the New York Football Giants, it was a big mistake not promoting one-time assistants Vince Lombardi, Tom Landry or Bill Belichick to head coach. John Fox: not so much. Denver was actually less prepared than Jim Fasshole had the NYFG against the Ravens.
Historically, the tie between religion and football has only been strengthened by players and coaches who have been willing to speak out about their beliefs. In recent years, NFL stars such as Tebow, Reggie White and Kurt Warner, and coaches Tony Dungy, Joe Gibbs and Tom Landry have used their fame as a platform for talking about their Christian faith.
Character and Perseverance Fred Smith gives us clear examples of character at work. By Fred Smith Character is built through perseverance. We are promised in Romans 5 that we move from a position of grace through tribulation and character to hope. Character is so much more important than personality. It is actually more important than intelligence, for it determines how we use both personality and intelligence. It is the seat of our values; it is the custodian of our will. Historically we have seen that most major failures are character failures and not ones of personality or intelligence. Today sometimes we popularly use the word "class" as a substitute for character. People often spoke of Tom Landry as "classy." They were recognizing the caliber of his character. Ken Venturi, talking about Jack Nicklaus was prompted to say, "Physical skills may diminish, but class never does." Nicklaus is a gentleman - it is an expression of his character. During a losing season with the Dallas Mavericks, Norm Sonju, th ...
Jerry Jones refused to heed the advice of Tex Schramm about Tom Landry. Sound football counsel has been dissed since
My reading skills have slowed me down, but I got a stack of new hardback books over Christmas (John Grisham and Forrest Carr being the only fiction. Others cover a wide array of biography/autobiographies (Gary Burton, Tom Landry, Roger Ailes ("The Loudest Voice in the Room"), Clarence Darrow & the new Mary Matalin/James Carvelle book "Love and War." Where to begin? Leaning towards Burton's "Learning to Listen," but I've been known to read two at the same time. Books always fit and never break when dropped.
I'm an old school, Tom Landry, Tony Dorsett, Roger Staubach, Cowboys fan. I'd like to root for the niners, but ever since "The Catch", I really despise those guys. and their uniforms are God-awful.
The '70 Cowboys would've won Super Bow if Tom Landry would've gone w/Roger Staubach instead of Morton.
I think its time that people stop referring to Bill Belicheck as some genius coach. Vince Lombardi, Tom Landry, Don Shula, Chuck Noll, and Bill Walsh didn't get fired in Cleveland or any other NFL job prior to becoming a legend. Bill owes all his success to whoever drafted Tom Brady. Is he a very good coach? Yes, but lets stop with this canonization. The reality is, if Bill had Donovan McNabb as his QB, he'd be coaching in KC.
How a football fanatic who has lived all over picks sides: I grew up with a Texan pappy who loved Tom Landry with all of his heart. My dad even looked and acted just like him, bald headed, stern eyed, and devout. So we grew up in those earliest years in Louisiana with a football. One of my favorite memories of Thanksgiving was throwing the ball with my brother and dad. I was a die-hard Saints fan, being from New Orleans. My dad, being a Texan, was a rabid Cowboys fan. I think I'll always love Roger Staubach and Tom Landry. They are up there with Thomas Jefferson and George Washington. I digress. Living in Belgium, there were two kick *** brothers who lived down the street. They were two of my best friends, and we had the neighborhood gang of American boys. We'd spend afternoons playing tackle football in their awesome, perfectly shaped yard. Everyone was from different places and had their favorite teams. I still remember laying on the floor with Mike and Marc Gambello, watching the Cowboys - ...

A Patriots win today would set Bill Belichick side-by-side with Cowboys great Tom Landry with the most playoff wins as a head coach ever.
Reason enough to cheer for Denver! With a win, Bill Belichick will match Tom Landry for most postseason wins by NFL coach.
Since 2001 Tom Brady and Peyton Manning have faced off 14 times with Brady holding the edge 10-4. The story lines are great: Manning looks to conquer his long time nemesis in the Patriots. Belichick looks to tie Tom Landry with 20 playoff wins. Brady looks to catch Joe Montana's TD record (45, he's at 42). Who punches their ticket to the big game?
Barely. I miss Tom Landry. Why are all these millionaires such slobs?
We miss Tom Landry. If Jerry were to talk football with him for five minutes, he would learn more than he knows now.
I agree…loved Landry. And I'm good with saying Saint Tom Landry. :)
Why the *** don't we say "Saint Tom Landry"? - the finest, simply the finest. Thanx for saying his name.
NFL network said that if Belacheck wins today he will tie TOM LANDRY for most post season wins ever! It's been 25 years ! 19 total

Just Sayin.how lucky are we Patriot Fans. AFC Championship game three years in a row. Our fearless leader Bill Belichick is looking to tie Tom Landry for most (20) wins in post season play. Tom "Terrific" Brady is 8-3 in regular season games; 2-1 in play offs ovah YOU KNOW WHO. If Pat's win it will be Brady's Sixth Super Bowl appearance and possibly his 4th ride on the Duck Boats.

Bill Belichick (19-8) ties Don Shula (19-17) for the 2nd-most wins in NFL postseason history. They're behind Tom Landry …
Karen Johnson. Bill Belichick is tied with Don Shula with 11 division titles and 19 wins for post season. Tom Landry has 20.
Bill Belichick ties Don Shula for 2nd most postseason wins by an head coach, 19. Needs one more to tie Tom Landry's record.
Tom Landry, legendary coach of the Dallas Cowboys, was credited with having said of a player with great potential; “That just means he hasn't done it yet.” That’s the thing about potential; it could happen, it might happen, but it hasn't happened and may never happen. The same thing could be said about promises. As human beings we are full of promise, or at least promises. We make all kinds of promises to people; sometimes planning to keep them, sometimes hoping we will keep them, and at other times knowing we won’t but lie to make ourselves look better. We humans have a problem with that – it’s called sin and will be discussed later (I promise!). In contrast to that, God made a lot of promises that He actually kept (all of them by the way). Peter talked about that in his second letter: “His divine power has granted to us everything pertaining to life and godliness, through the true knowledge of Him who called us by His own glory and excellence. For by these He has granted to us His ...
Reuters AP- The University of Texas has reported that it decided not to go with John Gruden, Bill Cowher, Jim Harbaugh, Tom Landry, or Nick Saban because, "Charlie Strong is a better fit for us at this time." The other coaches have not given any comments as they are probably too broken-hearted at being passed over.
My internet provider had problems yesterday for many hours...so, I am well into reading "The Last Cowboy - A Life of Tom Landry" by Mark Rabowsky. Victoria and I lived in Dallas when the Cowboys first started hitting their stride. We went to a game one Sunday when Dallas played the Cleveland Browns and Jim Brown was still playing...Frank Ryan was the Cleveland quarterback. Dandy Don Meredith was the Dallas quarterback and Bullet Bob Hayes was his favorite receiver.the defense was anchored by Bob Lily, of my Alma Mater, TCU. Really good game though Dallas lost by a hair...Meredith threw an interception into the endzone as time expired. Tom Landry was a man of faith, a great and brilliant coach, and class all the way. When Jerry Jones fired Landry...and Tom had to read about it in the papers...that did it for me and Dallas. Jones has since taken away the Landry family box seat and Tom, Jr.'s season tickets. Landry built the Cowboys which in turn lifted the NFL...and this is the thanks he gets. Jones cannot ...

Since the playoffs have begun, let's go by the numbers, Cowboys numbers: Playoffs missed during 29 years of Tom Landry: 10 Playoffs missed during 25 years of Jerry Jones: 12 Conference/division championships under Landry: 13 Division championships under Jones: 8 (Jones has to win the next four division championships to come up one short of Landry). Rant over.

Remembered coaches of that special era: Bounty Buddy Ryan- Eagles. The hatted coach from Dallas, yea Tom Landry, Joe Gibbs-Redskins, Jimmy Johnson- Cowboys, that coach from Redskins who had facial issues. Norman something. (Ah, Steve Courrier was the Cowboys QB I forgot). Ok, Don Shula when Dolphins SEEMED to have been a team! (with Dan Marino as QB).
No not at all, it's a media misconception. The ghost of Tom Landry continue to jinx Jerry Jones. Older fans have not forgiven
I hate Jerry Jones. I hated him as a little kid when I watched him fired Tom Landry the way he did and I hate him now as a 30 year old man.
SMDH!!! First it was Saban, then Briles, Jimbo Fisher, Jim Mora, then Vince Lombardi, then Tom Landry, etc, etc... Then when turned down, they really didn't want them, anyway. T-sippers are turning this coaching search into a total feckin' farce. Getting uglier by the minute. I chuckle. Hard!!!
Tonight, Ohio State will play Clemson in the Orange Bowl. As the game approaches, many people will flash back to the 1978 Gator Bowl when something happened that unfortunately lives in American sports history. That event involved the legendary Ohio State Coach, Woody Hayes. In 1978 Hayes' Ohio State team played Clemson in the Gator Bowl. Ohio State was driving for what would be the go-ahead score when they threw an interception. The Clemson player who intercepted the pass ran out of bounds on the Ohio State sidelines. There, he was confronted by Woody Hayes himself. Hayes then did the unthinkable... He punched the guy. People were stunned... shocked! Could this really be happening? Yes, it was. And shortly thereafter, Hayes was fired as Head Coach of the Ohio State Buckeyes. A legend had fallen. Some time after this, a football banquet was being held and Hayes was to attend. There were not many people who wanted to be seen in public with Woody Hayes back then... except for one man. Tom Landry ...
lots - the Don Shula one was brilliant, also fearsome foursome, Tom Landry and Kurt Warner ;)
.Don Meredith famously said 'In a personality contest between Tom Landry and Bud Grant there could be no winner.'
Well , the Browns have shown that with a new regime nothing really has changed . Like The Who said : "Meet the new boss . Same as the old boss ." But Jim Ingraham said it best for me this morning in the News-Herald : "This no longer a football team . It's a punch line." I don't like scapegoaters or backstabbers . I feel I am seeing this in our front office even more than before and that's disturbing . The coach is the reason the team stunk ? Really ? Did HE put the roster together ? I think not . I said it before and I'll say it again . A leopard doesn't change his spots and a backstabbing weasel never stops stabbing people in the back . Mike Lombardi was a backstabbing weasel before and it's pretty apparent he hasn't changed . I can't speak for Joe Banner , I know little about him and happily so it would seem . But Chuck Noll and Jimmy Johnson both started their NFL head coaching careers with one win seasons and Tom Landry with only a tie . They all became big winners and Noll and Landry have busts in Ca ...
Many of us saw the Dallas Cowboys in the days of Tex Schramm and Tom Landry, the big buyout when Jerry Jones took over and fired Tom Landry. Then he built a winning team with a winning coach, and after the Super Bowls, fired his wining coach, Jimmy Johnson, hire the goofball, Barry Switzer, then he began to hire mediocre coaches and has continued to profit and lead us all on. I have been a die hard Dallas Cowboys fan for my entire life. My belief is that if we continue to support Jerry's pocket book, he will continue to lead us on. We need to start a protest, not of the players, or the coaches, but the merchandise and ticket purchases. Somehow we've got to stop this runaway blue star train wreck.
Yep, Boys lost. But, I'm still a die hard Cowboys fan. Because I remember watching "Bullet" Bob Hayes, "Dandy" Don Meredith, Roger "the Dodger" Staubach, Lee Roy Jordan, Tony Dorsett, Randy White, Mel Renfro, Emmitt Smith, Charlie Waters, Troy Aikman, Daryl "Moose" Johnston just to name a few of the greats. And, season after season I watched the classiest coach of all time, Tom Landry lead his Cowboys to victory. I will fuss about 'em and yell at 'em but win, lose or draw I'm a Cowboys fan.
Yeah we lost but who would've thought Kyle Orton would give the Eagles a run for their money. What can I say? Tom Landry, Tex Schramm, Mark Tunei, Harvey Martin and Bullet Bob Hayes are rolling over in their graves.
The Cowboys need to get the spirit of the pass legends: Roger Staubach, Bob Lilly, Jethro Pugh, Bob Hayes, Randy White, Randy Travis, George Strait, John Wayne & of course, Tom Landry!!! Go Cowboys!!!

This is yet another funny Hank Hill/Tom Landry dream sequence from the King of the Hill episode "Trans-Fascism"-- ENJOY! ;-D
So many NFL teams have had legendary coaches...Bears had Ditka and Hallas, packers had Lombardi and Holmgren. Pittsburgh had Chuck Noll and Dallas had Tom Landry. Miami had Don Shula and the 49ers have had Bill Walsh and George Seifert. Who have the Lions had? Wayne Fontes is the best coach they have had. Hardly legendary! So when and if they fire Jim Shwartz, will it really matter? History shows they won't hire "Legendary"!
The Texans Could hire Bill Walsh and have Tom Landry as their Offensive Coordinator & Parcells as their Defense coach and they'd Suck!
NFL pre game news conference, days leading up to game day hmmm...this part of the game is bs, during the 70's through the 80's I don't remember these interviews. could you imaging Tom Landry, Bud Grant, Chuck Nolls, Don Coryell, Bill Walsh, etc. partaking in this waste of time.
Cowboys Fans,I just wanna let yall know that your problem aint Romo your problem is your owners ego!! Every since Jerry Jones bought the Cowboys he's been trying to make sure that he's the one that get's all the credit for anything having to do with the Cowboys but he's not a coach.When he bought the team he got rid of Tom Landry because he knew Tom was the face of the Cowboy's,then he brought in Jimmy Johnson who did what he was hired to do he drafted Aikmen,Irvin,Emmit,and everybody else who was significant on that Championship team and won the Super Bowl,but Jerry didn't like that Jimmy Johnson was getting credit so he told the media that he didn't need Johnson he could have won with Barry Switzer so out goes Johnson and in comes Switzer. Switzer won that year because he was playing with the same team that Jimmy Johnson built but after that win nobody else has been able to win in Dallas and Jerry Jones is still holding press conferences and trying to play coach.SMH Whats even worse is now Jerry's son h ...
"Coaching is making men do what they don't want, so they can become what they want to be" -- Tom Landry
My mom took me to my first game at "The Stick".The 49ers won their third consecutive NFC West title in 1972 with five wins in their last six games, making them the only franchise to win their first three divisional titles after the 1970 AFL-NFL merger. Their opponents this time in the divisional playoffs were the Dallas Cowboys, making it the third consecutive year the teams faced each other in the playoffs. Vic Washington took the opening kickoff 97 yards for a score, and the 49ers took a 21–6 lead in the second quarter. After the 49ers took a 28–13 lead in the 4th quarter, Tom Landry sent quarterback Roger Staubach, who was backing up Craig Morton, into the game. Staubach quickly led the Cowboys on a drive to a field goal, bringing the score to within 28–16, and as the game wound down it appeared that this would be the last points the Cowboys would get. However, Dallas completed the comeback in the last two minutes. Just after the two-minute warning Staubach took just four plays to drive 55 yards ...
I have not liked the Dallas Cowboys since the Roger Staubach/Tom Landry days , back when there were just 14 games in a season and the Eagles always ended up in the cellar while the Cowboys were getting beat by the Steelers in two Superbowls after winning the division all the time. I took an automatic disliking to the Cowboys after they proclaimed themselves to be 'America's Team'. (It was just a marketing strategy to attract bandwagon fans from all over America). The Cowboys have also had their problems over the years , yet , they still snub their noses at the rest of the league as if they were better than everybody else. I don't like the Cowboys for many of the same reasons that I don't like the Yankees. I am glad to end this season , at Dallas , playing for the NFC East Title. We are a better football team then they are right now. And we will do what I love doing to 'America's Team'.
The Greatest Game Changer in Human History Genesis 3:15, “And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel.” Most of the people reading this have probably never heard the name Clifford Lyman Livingston, or as he was known when he played for the New York Football Giants, Cliff Livingston. Cliff Livingston played linebacker for the Giants, the Minnesota Vikings and the Los Angeles Rams. As far as I could tell he has never been inducted into the Professional Football Hall of Fame, but he did appear in an episode of Perry Mason with several other “Giants” and players from the Baltimore Colts. During the 1958 NFL Championship game there were many players whose names are much more familiar to us: Johnny Unitus, Sam Huff, Frank Gifford, Vince Lombardi (Giants Offensive Coordinator), Tom Landry (Giants Defensive Coordinator), but the reason that Cliff Livingston is remembered by football historians is because, ...
Today is Saturday, December 21, 2013 Today in Sports History 1941 - Ray McLean (Chicago Bears) performed a drop kick for an extra point in the NFL. The next one would not happen until Doug Floutie performed on 61 years later. 1951 - Joe DiMaggio announced his retirement from major league baseball. 1959 - Tom Landry accepted the position of head coach of the Dallas Cowboys. Landry led the team to 22 consecutive winning seasons in his 29 years as coach. 1969 - Vince Lombardi coached his last game. His Washington Redskins lost to the Dallas Cowboys 20-10. The Redskins ended that season at 7-5-2, which was the first winning season for the team in 14 years. 1975 - John Riggins became the first New York Jets player to gain 1,000 yards. 1975 - George Blanda, in his final regular-season game, became the first professional football player to reach 2,000 points. His total was 2,002 points over a 26-year career. 1975 - The Buffalo Sabres scored eight goals in the third period against the Washington Capitals. The Sab ...
Tom Landry, Chuck Noll, and BB all had worse records than Rex after 5 yrs, and dumb NY fans would have fired all of them.
Tom Landry, Gene Stallings or Dennis Franchione all should get hard looks too.
After watching "A Football Life", on The NFL Network last night, my opinion of this guy is even stronger than it was before. Marty Schottenheimer is the perfect coach. I don't want to hear about his post season record. I don't care about his post season record. The measure of any coach, is what he accomplishes with what he's been given. He is a teacher. A teacher of football. He is both passionate and one of the most knowledgeable minds in professional football. Combining those two things with the ability to teach and to relate to men half your age is an achievement. In my opinion.Marty was such a good coach, that he could get you to the playoffs with virtually any roster a GM would give him. But to get THROUGH the playoffs, requires skill at certain positions that Marty NEVER was given. He never had a HOF quarterback like Chuck Noll, or Tom Landry, or Dan Reeves, or Don Shula, or Vince Lombardi, or Marv Levy, or Bill Walsh, or Barry Switzer, or Bill Belichick, or Hank Stram, or Tony Dungy, or Bud Grant e ...
For 45 years i have watched and rooted for the cowboys i even stood by them when Jerry fired Tom Landry i was there when Jimmy Johnson had his 1-15 season there with the Barry Switzer mess and all the other coaches as well as quarterbacks but after last yesterdays game i have to say until some changes are made Gm Coach & quarterback i will not be supporting the Dallas Cowboys. Im sorry but enough is enough
The day that mr. Jerry Jones bought the cowboys, that was the darkest day for the team. 1). Jerry had no respect for the late Tom Landry. 2). He had great coaches but did not take care of them. I.e. Jimmy Johnson & Barry Switzer. 3). Jerry has no focus on the team only on the mighty dollar. 4). Da boys are no longer a america's team. Titles are earn not bought.

My first pro football memories go back to Don Meredith, Bobby Hayes, Jethro Pugh, Leroy Jordan, Calvin Hill, Walt Garrison and Tom Landry. I remember Roger Staubach's first game as a Cowboy. What great championship teams he led with Tony Dorset, Drew Pearson, Ed Jones, Harvey Martin, and Randy White. I lived through the rough years in the mid 80's was rewarded for my patience with great teams in the 90's and have been a proud Cowboys' fan. But the last few years have been infuriating. I am tire of Jerry Jones. I am tired of Tony Romo and I am tired of sorry defense. I am now washing my hands of them. If they win who cares. If they lose, so what. I am done.
Hey (DON'T) Get all excited folks WHILE "enjoying" the slippery slope ride with Tony Romo as quaterback...wait...can he punt a ball perhaps that would be a better suited job for him since the end result is the opposing team gets possession without having him throw another interception. He is a our modern day Danny White ...oh my apologies at least Mr. White although having the punting job too you led the Cowboys to three consecutive NFC Championship Games (1980-1982). Romo, fun to watch but don't bet the farm unless you are betting against him to choke on another December Sunday Game. Romo, you will always be home watching the playoffs with Jerry Jones. Jerry your brilliance left you when you decided to remain the owner of the Cowboys. I can hear the voice Tom Landry.run run run the ball your insufferable *** At least Forrest Gump had the insight to stick with what works. I guess stupid is as stupid does (Jerry Jones). Cowboys lead the game by a balanced attack of run and pass. So in true fashion Jerry .. ...
As with the Christmas Carol... the ghost of Tom Landry needs to visit Jerry Jones. The Cowboys past...when they had a GM... The present we all know that story...and the future if nothing changes where the team has been moved to China and Ryan Leaf is the head coach
Jerry Jones, please sell the team. You make one bad decision after another. Treat Jason Garrett like you did Tom Landry!
GOOD JOB GREEN BAY PACKERS!!! Never thought I'd say that, but, it's well deserved!! The Dallas Cowbags "EFF" it up AGAIN.!! 26-3 at the half and in the lead...they step on their collective *** and lose 27-26 because they didn't run the ball.they threw it...away. Tom Landry,..Tex Schramm...Gil Brandt,...and Clint Murchison must ALL be spinning in their graves right about now.
Everyone thought Tennessee was fighting out of its weight class trying to get Jon Gruden. Texas' top four candidates (to replace a guy that, as yet, hasn't resigned or been fired)? Nick Saban. Urban Meyer. Mike Tomlin. Jim Harbaugh. I'm thinking while they're at it, at least put some feelers out to Knute Rockne, Vince Lombardi and Tom Landry. If you really want to be thorough.
One of the best weekends of watching football ever. If watching the Lions /Eagles game did not make you wish we had a foot of snow so you could go make diving catches your dead inside. Capped it off watching Mike Ditka get his number retired. Watching the interviews took me back to my childhood. When asked about people he wishes could be here he talks about George Halas and Tom Landry, and he broke down when talking about the way the believed in him. His words about Walter Payton made me wish more players modeled themselves after such a wonderful human being. As good as he was on the field, he was better off it. He also had the best words of wisdom I have heard for the entire NFL. "Take care of he fans, when the fans leave, the game ends". Mike Ditka has become a great football persona, but GS is also one of the most humble and generous men you will ever meet. First tight end ever in the HOF. Also has one if the best set of sketches ever on SnL Da Super Fans. Congratulations Iron Mike!
Tex Shramm, Tom Landry...I miss the old days and for ya Romo haters I feel sorry for him everybody still thinks Danny White was a loser after Staubach .just remember the list after Aikman Randall Cunningham Clint Stoerner Ryan Leaf Anthony Wright Quincy Carter Chad Hutchinson Drew Bledsoe Vinny Testaverde need I say more if I was him I would retire with the 100 million and call it good

Jones the GM in the beginning- Jerry Jones purchased The Dallas Cowboys on February 25, 1989. Jones first act as owner/ GM immediately fired Tom Landry, the only head coach in franchise history, replacing him with University of Miami head coach Jimmy Johnson. With the first pick in the draft, the Cowboys selected UCLA quarterback Troy Aikman. Later that same year, they would trade veteran running back Herschel Walker to the Minnesota Vikings for five veteran players and eight draft choices. Although the Cowboys finished the 1989 season with a 1–15 record, their worst in almost 30 years, "The Trade" later allowed Dallas to draft a number of impact players to rebuild the team. Jones and Johnson quickly returned the Cowboys to the NFL's elite. Skillful drafts added fullback Daryl Johnston and center Mark Stepnoski in 1989, running back Emmitt Smith in 1990, defensive tackle Russell Maryland and offensive tackle Erik Williams in 1991, and safety Darren Woodson in 1992. The young talent joined holdovers from ...

back In the 70's they had a legendary Coach Tom Landry And the team was just all around a great and respectful team
Prayed to Tom Landry today, all I asked is for a Dallas win and Dez Bryant to help me pick up a Fantasy win.
Let's go Cowboys!!! Long time Dallas fan. I hope Tom Landry can coach them to a victory!!
and Tom Landry, in Cowboy heaven. Heh heh
Jason Garrett remind me a lot of Tom Landry.dead.
You sure it's not just Jerry Jones?! How can you despise a team that had Tom Landry for all those years?
Tom Landry needs to come back to life
If you are a GM and owner and fire Tom Landry you deserve to loose every single game until you retire.
I miss the classic days with Stauback, Dorsett, Coach Tom Landry on sideline, those were the days.
if Tom Landry was still coaching we'd be an amazing football team
I live in TX. Everyone over 60 calls Jones, "That new owner who treated Tom Landry (God) like dirt."
