IRVING – Cowboys coach Jason Garrett must really love tight end Martellus Bennett as a blocker.
Why else would the underachieving Texas A&M alum still be on the team?
The Cowboys cut ineffective running back Tashard Choice on Saturday after he fumbled twice in back-to-back games.
On Monday, Garrett was asked how many more chances he was going to give Bennett after his dropped...
The Dallas Cowboys have demonstrated the ability to put tough losses behind in the Jason Garrett era. The maddeningly inconsistent team will now try to bounce back from the most one-sided defeat of its head coach's tenure when it hosts the Seattle Seahawks Sunday in a midseason matchup.
Rob Ryan took some guff for putting Sunday night’s loss to the Eagles all on his shoulders. Some folks, apparently, think it’s unbecoming of a defensive coordinator to do that. But head coach Jason Garrett doesn’t have a problem with it, as he made clear in his comments on Monday.
"I think one of the things we talk about as an organization is having the right kind of...
Dallas Cowboys beat writer Brandon George had a live chat today on the Dallas Morning News and one of the things talked about was the teams running back situation. George was asked what he thinks will happen with DeMarco Murray and Felix Jones, when Jones returns from his ankle injury. It’s a valid question as Murray has proven he can also handle the load.

We discussed at great length on Monday about the game plan of Rob Ryan that in some respects seemed sound...
After watching the Cowboys get completely destroyed against the Eagles on Sunday night I am finally convinced about the state of the team. The Cowboys are just a completely average team right now. They aren't as terrible as the Eagles' game might make you believe. But they also aren't nearly as good as the dominating win against the Rams might fool you into believing...
In the wake of their 34-7 beatdown at the hands of the Eagles, Cowboys owner Jerry Jones has spent all week in what some might consider a state of euphoric denial, insisting the loss didn't mean much and that the team will start winning lots of games.
Now, I already posited that the Double J was saying this as a way of subtly making an ultimatum to Jason Garrett. But there&...
Famed cyclist Lance Armstrong was born in Dallas and named after former Cowboys receiver Lance Rentzel, so his ties to America's Team run deep. But after a Tweet sent out in the wake of the Cowboys 35-7 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles, Armstrong shouldn't be expecting an invite to Cowboys Stadium anytime soon.
