That player was Hall of Fame running back Emmitt Smith who finished with 1,773 yards from 377 attempts. It also happened to be the last time the Cowboys won […]

Don Banks: First-year coach Jay Gruden has Redskins thinking quick turnaround
ASHBURN, Va. -- The honeymoon months are always fun and filled with promise for a first-time NFL head coach, in that blank-slate, anything-is-possible sort of way. But soon enough, we'll begin to find out if Jay Gruden and his new-look Redskins resemble the club that took the NFL by surprise in 2012, storming to an NFC East title, or the team that bottomed out in dysfunctional fashion in 2013, posting Washington's worst record (3-13) since the dawn of the Norv Turner era in 1994.

Don Banks: Having prepared for swan song, Steve Smith now freshly motivated
OWINGS MILLS, Md. -- Steve Smith had made up his mind. Last January, in the days following the Carolina Panthers' disappointing one-and-done playoff appearance against the San Francisco 49ers, Smith's heart and body started leading him in the direction of his own one-and-done experience. His decision was clear. He would play one more season with the Panthers, his 14th in Carolina, and then retire, heading home to his burgeoning family and whatever life after football held.

Don Banks: Few teams better than Packers at finding late-round, undrafted gems
The Packers' recent signing of baggage-laden tight end Colt Lyerla struck some as an out-of-character move for Green Bay, which doesn't routinely take chances on players who enter the NFL with the bevy of red flags featured by the talented but troubled former Oregon Duck. But viewed from another perspective, the Packers' risky redemption project does fit a certain pattern, given Green Bay's well-known penchant for successfully mining the undrafted collegiate free agent ranks, as well as compiling a strong track record in the later rounds of the draft.

Lost Battalion shipped to Singapore

On this day in 1942, 200 men of the Lost Battalion were shipped to Singapore as prisoners of war of the Japanese. Most of the remaining battalion members followed nine days later. The unit, the Second Battalion, 131st Field Artillery, originated as part of the Thirty-sixth Infantry Division, United States Army, in 1940 when President Franklin D. Roosevelt mobilized the Texas National Guard. The division, which soon grew to almost 16,000 men from Texas and surrounding states, reported to Camp Bowie, near Brownwood.

Texas Revolution begins at Gonzales

On this day in 1835, fighting broke out at Gonzales between Mexican soldiers and Texas militiamen. When Domingo de Ugartechea, military commander in Texas, received word that the American colonists of Gonzales refused to surrender a small cannon that had been given that settlement in 1831 as a defense against the Indians, he dispatched Francisco de Castañeda and 100 dragoons to retrieve it on September 27. Though Castañeda attempted to avoid conflict, on the morning of October 2 his force clashed with local Texan militia led by John Henry Moore in the first battle of the Texas Revolution.

Trials leading to Great Hanging at Gainesville begin

On this day in 1862, a vigilante court opened proceedings in the incident that came to be known as the Great Hanging at Gainesville. Forty suspected Unionists were hanged that month, and two others were shot as they tried to escape. Although the affair reached its climax in Cooke County, men were killed in neighboring Grayson, Wise, and Denton counties.
