Found December 11, 2013 on The Outlaws:
As if things couldn't get any worse for Dallas Cowboys defenders, both George Selvie and Orlando Scandrick were fined by the NFL for supposed dirty hits. Per ESPN Dallas: Selvie was fined for a second-quarter roughing the passer penalty when he hit Bears quarterback Josh McCown below the knee. The 15-yard penalty was added to a 26-yard completion to Alshon Jeffery. Scandrick was fined for a fourth-quarter unnecessary roughness penalty when he hit wide receiver Brandon Marshall on a 22-yard completion. The hit was deemed to be on a defenseless player. Yes, Dallas defenders couldn't even break up passing plays while racking up penalties and fines. George Selvie has said that he plans to appeal his fine: Cowboys DE George Selvie said he will appeal his $15,750 fine by the NFL for his roughing the QB penalty Monday at Chicago. — Brandon George (@DMN_George) December 11, 2013 Meanwhile, Orlando Scandrick has already appeal...

Jerry Jones gives Monte Kiffin and Rod Marinelli a vote of confidence

Stephen Jones Says Cowboys “Stars” Didn’t Show Up

You notice Jerry and Stephen Jones talk more than the entire Dallas Cowboys coaching staff? “You turn on the tape and guys we count on week in and week out didn’t show up,” Jones said at the conclusion of an NFL Owners meeting at the Four Seasons Resort in Las Colinas. “I don’t know what it was, but we didn’t get it done and I’ve got to believe we can do better than...

Dallas Cowboys Fans Can’t Blame Tony Romo This Year

With first place in the NFC East on the line, the Cowboys’ No. 32-ranked defense couldn’t stop McCown, his running back or any of the Bears’ talented receivers Monday night.  The Cowboys began the cold night with a promising, 12-play, 75-yard march to a touchdown, with DeMarco Murray running the ball six times for 52 yards. But McCown and the Bears came right back and scored...

Jerry Jones on Monte Kiffin: ‘nobody I’d rather have’

We are at that point again where we begin to talk about another mediocre and failed season for the Dallas Cowboys. Sure, they are a game behind NFC East leading Philadelphia with the season finale against them in three weeks, but do you trust that defense in any game moving forward, especially against the explosive Chip Kelly offense led by Nick Foles and LeSean McCoy? This is a...

Must-Have Holiday Music: ‘Christmas With The Dallas Cowboys Legends’

Hey, remember the 80s? What a crazy decade that was, right? People were all coked up out of their brains, and because of it we had movies about alien ducks and alien robots and alien, um, aliens – it was a really ridiculous era of American pop culture. But nothing was more ridiculous than the music, especially when it came to athletes that thought they could sing, such as the Dallas...

Cowboys' defense a study in contradictions

DeMarcus Ware intercepted the first pass of the season, one of six turnovers for a Dallas defense that also gave up 450 yards passing to Eli Manning and the New York Giants in the opener. The Cowboys have been a study in defensive contradictions ever since. They are the only team to keep Philadelphia out of the end zone this year, yet they've surrendered the first two 600-yard...

Dallas Cowboys: Another failed December in store?

The Dallas Cowboys are coming off another embarrassing loss in the month of December. Dallas was unable to force a single punt against the Chicago Bears on Monday night. At this point, the Cowboys defense would have a hard time stopping a Slinky. It looks like another late season collapse is in store for the Boys. Most teams, with playoff aspirations, like to be playing their best...

The Cowboys Super Bowl Window Has Officially Closed
