Stephen A. Smith used his cameo on The Game Awards to blister the Cowboys
The Cowboys are never safe from Stephen A. Smith, even when he's not on the clock.
The fiery "First Take" commentator, who has a notable history of dragging America's (oft-maligned) Team, took advantage of a unique situation Thursday to blindside Dallas with another stinging remark.
That opportunity came at The Game Awards, an annual awards ceremony established in 2014 that honors achievements in the video game industry. Smith, asked to present the award for "Best Esports Player," was effusive in his praise of the genre as it kept going amid the COVID-19 pandemic. That he could use the platform to take a dig at the Cowboys only made it better:

It's hard to disagree with Smith's take this year, even knowing he never misses an opportunity to call the Cowboys out. Dallas (3-9) is dead last in the horrible NFC East, partially because of the injury to quarterback Dak Prescott; but their woes go far beyond quarterback play, as the team has also lost several key contributors along the offensive line and features one of the worst defenses in the league.
So, yeah, another easy shot for Stephen A. To those wondering what a sports commentator is doing presenting video game awards: ESPN has invested a significant amount of money in esports in 2019 because of its popularity among athletes and video game enthusiasts alike.
And, to those interested in such things, "League of Legends" player ShowMaker — of DAMWON Gaming — won the award.

Don't think for a second that with the Dallas Cowboys' season being over, you'll no longer see Dak Prescott on your TV.
If you haven't noticed, he's all over the place when the commercials hit, and he's adding another to the lineup.
The latest ad is for Dannon's Oikos Greek yogurt. And it looks like his dogs, Legend (the pit bull) and The GOAT make cameos, too.
You may remember Prescott picked up his endorsement deal with Dannon after it dumped Panthers quarterback Cam Newton over his comments about a female reporter's news conference questions. Dannon itself called the comments "sexist."
The Cowboys quarterback already had a long list of endorsements that included AT&T, Adidas, Pepsi, Tostitos, 7-Eleven, Beats By Dre, Panini, Campbell's Chunky Soup, New Era caps, Keurig and Nicholas Air.
According to ESPN's Darren Rovell, including the Dannon deal, sponsors paid Prescott around $3 million in 2017. His base salary for the season with the Cowboys was $540,000.

Indianapolis Colts, "Parks and Recreation":
Andrew Luck, Reggie Wayne, Jim Irsay and other Colts appeared in the hilarious episode "Flouride" in season 6 of "Parks and Recreation." Author's note - I actually once texted with Rob Lowe and he didn't mention the Colts. I know, I name-dropped, but when am I ever going to get "I texted with Rob Lowe" into a conversation naturally? That's a tough needle to thread.

Jerry Jones, "Entourage ":
The Dallas Cowboys owner interacts with super-agent Ari Gold to gauge his interest in owning an NFL team. Part of me wonders if Jones makes these Hollywood phone calls every day, and the show just asked if he'd do a fake one for TV. Regardless, it gave him the acting chops he shows off in the latest New Era cap commercials. And how has he not been asked to guest-star in TNT's new version of "Dallas"? Honestly, he could be a series regular, which would allow him to devote less time to running the Cowboys. It's a win-win for everyone.

Alex Karras, "M*A*S*H*":
Years before he would star on "Webster," Karras played a soldier whose life is saved by Hawkeye (Alan Alda) and then dedicates himself to attempting to pay him back. Alda and Karras had already acted together in the 1968 film "Paper Lion," about a sportswriter who gets a tryout with the Detroit Lions. Which actually, years ago, is how the Lions got their quarterbacks. The more you know! (Star trail across the screen...)

Eric Mangini, "The Sopranos":
He didn't have a line. He was just eating in a restaurant, and it was like five seconds long. But that was the power Mangini had during his first couple of seasons with the New York Jets. Now, his success feels as dated as the show he was on. However, most of the best Jets players were drafted by him, so his fingerprints are still on the franchise, just like how the influence of "The Sopranos" is still felt in cable dramas today.

Jay Cutler, "South Park":
It was only a matter of time before the creators found something Denver Broncos-related to hit on in the show. I'm sure they wanted to riff on a player earlier, but Cutler was the only QB to stick around for more than five minutes since Elway retired. "Hey, I have a great bit on Brian Griese!" "Forget it. By the time our new season comes around he won't be here. Let's table it."

Bill Belichick, "Rescue Me":
The Patriots head coach is in a funeral scene playing a mourner who, in a conversation with someone says the sport he follows is...lacrosse. I watched every episode of this show and I can't believe Denis Leary didn't get more of his favorite Boston athletes to do cameos. How was Steve Grogan not a fire chief? Terry Glenn a lieutenant? Bill Parcells the mayor who can't decide if he wants to stay in his job or leave to be mayor somewhere else? The possibilities were endless.

Bob Golic, "Saved By The Bell":
The early 1990s was a time of change. Finally, the crew graduated high school and left Bayside behind for new adventures at Fictional California College (which I think was the actual name of the school.) Enter Golic as a former football player (there's a stretch) with a softer side who portrayed a dorm advisor. He was extremely intimidating. Seriously, if he was my dorm advisor, I would have never left my room. I would have studied more out of fear than anything else. Which means I might have graduated with a G.P.A. over 3.0. Which means I might have had more doors open to me as a result. I'm going to stop because now I'm depressed I didn't have Bob Golic over my shoulder in college.

Peyton Manning, "The Simpsons":
Why do I have a feeling the "Keep away from Cooper" scene was exactly what happened when the three Manning brothers were teenagers - except instead of Cooper it was Eli? When both of the brothers' playing days are over, Eli's going to sit down at the Thanksgiving table and say "Rings, yo. Rinnnnnnnggggggs." And then flip the table over and walk out smiling.

Joe Namath, "The Brady Bunch":
I would have pretended to be sick like Bobby Brady did if I could meet Joe Namath. I love how even in the '70s, Namath brought his agent with him to the Brady's house. And when Bobby asked if Namath could come over for dinner, the agent whips out a picture and says, "How about an autographed photo instead?" How ahead of its time was that scene?

Tom Brady, "Entourage":
What? A Jets fan picking a Patriots player over a Jets player for the top spot? Well, I have to tell the truth. Brady was phenomenal ("I'm good. I'm used to the hate."), but more importantly, he seemed real. As in that's how an athlete would really react if put in a situation where a fan starts insulting him in a public place. But what I don't get is Turtle's animosity for Brady. The Giants beat him in the Super Bowl, so there's no bitterness. The Giants forever have a leg up against the Patriots. Now, had they made Turtle a Jets fan, well, let's just say I would have liked to have written his lines.
Ed Sheeran’s NFL cameo sets internet, US Twitter alight

Brady’s Buccaneers beat the Dallas Cowboys 31-29 and the internet lit up when the cameras panned to Ed Sheeran watching along from a corporate box with NFL commissioner Roger Goodell.
The NFL boss is no stranger to being roasted by fans in the US and it was no different this time around as punters questioned what the 62-year-old had in common with the tattooed 30-year-old musician.
The Twittersphere went into overdrive at the sight of Sheeran and Goodell together, as they appeared on TV at the same time another man in their company was roaring with laughter.
Unsurprisingly, the internet had jokes.
US radio host Dan Graca tweeted: “Goodell rolling up the sleeves to look cool around Ed Sheeran.”
Shane Bacon added: “Would pay $8,000 for a transcript of what Roger Goodell and Ed Sheeran have talked about tonight.”
Podcaster Jake Brown wrote: “Ed Sheeran & Roger Goodell … what a strange duo.”
Football writer Amie Just said: “Roger Goodell and Ed Sheeran are hanging out together in a suite. Can’t imagine me typing out that sentence before this week.”
Sports presenter Olivia Whitmire tweeted: “Gonna be honest here Roger Goodell and Ed Sheeran side by side isn’t something I really expected to see but alright.”
Cowboys cameo dallas
Cowboys legend Deion Sanders dominates in 1st game at Jackson State, after Aikman cameos pre-game
Hall of Famer Deion Sanders coached his first collegiate game on Sunday for Jackson State. The Tigers started their season with a dominant 53-0 win at home against Edward Waters College. Jackson State’s offense was running on all cylinders and the defense came through with a shutout in the former Dallas Cowboys star’s debut.
Jackson State’s season was postponed in the fall after the FCS decided to move their season to the spring and their eight-game slate began on Sunday.
Previously Sanders had been the offensive coordinator at Trinity Christian School in Texas before accepting the job at Jackson State as head coach. During his tenure, Sanders was a part of back-to-back state titles, coaching his son, Shedeur Sanders, at quarterback. Sanders’ son is a 4-star recruit and signed his NLI in December to play for his father at Jackson State.
Before the game, fellow Cowboys legend Troy Aikman surprised Sanders to congratulate him on his first college game.
Sanders and Jackson State will continue their season on February 27 at home against Mississippi Valley State.
