As they were last week, the Cowboys will be without the middle of their offensive line and defensive line once again this week as center Phil Costa will miss with back problems and nose tackle Jay Ratliff will miss with an ankle problem. Costa left during their week 1 game against the Giants, while Ratliff has yet to play a snap this season after injuring himself in the preseason. Ryan Cook, who was acquired from the Dolphins for a late round pick right before final cuts, will get the start once again at center.

Livings was awful in 2011 with the Bengals and Bernadeau is a career backup and former 7th round pick so I have no idea why the Cowboys paid him starter’s money to start for them. In Ratliff’s absence, defensive end Sean Lissemore has played more inside, while Josh Price-Brent has been starting at nose tackle.

Are the Cowboys headed to a losing record?

Tony Romo, Dez Bryant and the Dallas Cowboys could be facing a disappointing 1-2 start if they do not fix the problems that led them to a head-scratching blowout loss against the Seattle Seahawks last week. The loss led many fans and critics to wonder what kind of the team the Cowboys are this year? Although the first weeks of the NFL season always contain a degree of parody, a loss...

Dez Bryant's Need for Supervision Has Brought Era of Nanny Coaches to NFL

The Cowboys made a stir earlier this year when they announced that wide receiver Dez Bryant would be playing under a different set of team rules this season. Bryant had a curfew set up and his off-field entertainment choices curtailed by the team, which has been trying to find a way to keep Bryant from inhibiting himself in his free time so he can go back to being a downfield threat...

Replacement referee takes out Kevin Ogletree with his hat (GIF)

If you’ve been listening to the debate over the replacement refs, and wondering exactly how they impact the game negatively or jeopardize player safety, I give you Exhibit A.

Dallas 16, Tampa Bay 10: Winning While Regressing

Sean Lee was a hero yet again, picking off a pass on a deflection the first quarter. The play set up the Cowboys’ lone touchdown. We’re using the following to define regression: 2. Relapse to a less perfect or developed state. We use that word today because of this— 13 penalties for 105 yards. An interception in Dallas territory in the first quarter, which led to a Tampa...

Video: More Debacles for NFL Replacement Refs

It’s been a tough season so far for the replacement officials in the NFL. It seems to be obvious to almost every NFL player, coach and fan, who’s name isn’t Roger Goodell, that the replacement reps aren’t up to par with the currently locked out officials. We all know that the old officials made mistakes, but the amount of mistakes seemed miniscule compared to what we’ve...

Bucs offense quite offensive in loss to Cowboys

The Dallas Cowboys beat the Tampa Bay Buccaneers by a score of 16-10. However, the score could have been one less touchdown for the Bucs as their offense could not get anything going. Tampa Bay started off quick when Aqib Talib stepped in front of Cowboys’ wide receiver Miles Austin to intercept the pass from Tony Romo. Josh Freeman would go on to throw a one yard touchdown pass...

Tampa Bay Buccaneers vs. Dallas Cowboys: Five Things We Learned

I must admit my views are a bit slanted when it comes to being objective about the Dallas Cowboys. Are you kidding me? America's Team, Jerry World? And let us not forget the newest product to sweep the nation - "Jerry Wipes". However long my tenure at being a loyal and devout follower of said "Holier Than Thou" football team; I can say the glow has started...

Consistency an issue for Cowboys

Each time they head to the practice field, Dallas Cowboys players pass motivational messages posted outside the locker room.
