The Cowboys lost in San Diego, but there’s no shame in losing to a decent San Diego team in San Diego, with a huge trend working against them (Non-divisional home dogs are 37-11 ATS since 1989 before being divisional road favorites, while, teams are 20-35 ATS since 1989 as non-divisional road favorites before being non-divisional home underdogs). They still have as many wins as the rest of the division combined and look like a heavy favorite in the worst division in football. This is a talented team that could give Denver a scare this week in Cowboys Stadium.

IRVING, Texas Cowboys receiver Dez Bryant said he can make plays if the ball is thrown to him in double coverage, which is what Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said he would like to see.
Bryant stopped short of calling for more passes to be thrown to him, but didn't disagree with Jones' request.

Orlando Scandrick started again at cornerback for the Cowboys this past weekend and might get the nod again this weekend. So what is Orlando doing to prepare for Peyton Manning and the NFL’s best offense? Orlando is busy hanging with his basketball wife Draya. He better lock down Demaryius Thomas like that this weekend.

The Dallas Cowboys had a great opportunity to build on a dominant win against the St. Louis Rams this week. After the first half they were well on their way to beating the San Diego Chargers.
Dez Bryant once again showed why he is one of the best receivers in the league. He grabbed a jump ball in the end zone for a score, and he then later caught a 34 yard touchdown pass...

Peyton Manning through a quarter of the season is on pace to shatter the passing TD record, Hatcher and the Cowboys...
Cowboys are doing a lot of chirping about the Broncos and Peyton Manning. If this was the playoffs I would say the Cowboys would have a good shot, but since it is the regular season, I don’t think these quotes are going to help.
“I’m sick of hearing about Peyton Manning this and that and that,” said linebacker Ernie Sims, who expects to replace struggling starter Bruce Carter...
Today Anthony Spencer, our franchise-tagged defensive end, is undergoing microfracture surgery on his left knee to repair his articular cartilage damage. A league source has said that the procedure involves the use of stem cells.

The Cowboys may be 2-2 to start the season, much as they did the last season, but one player who has performed (and improved) is Tony Romo.
In a conference call with Denver media, Tony went into detail about how changes in his throwing mechanics have allowed him to approach the game in a calmer and steadier manner than he has in the past. Per Charean Williams of the Star-Telegram...
If Jerry Jones was telling the truth when he said Tony Romo would have a lot more say in the game-planning process this season, then it's time for the quarterback to get a little greedy. On the surface, the fact Romo's only thrown one interception through four games should be cause for celebration.
His only interception of the season came in the season-opener against the...
During an appearance on ESPN 980 in Washington D.C., Adam Schefter gave his thoughts on the Dallas Cowboys so far this season.
“You just can not count on them. They are so un-clutch,” said Schefter, per Chris Russell of ESPN 980.
Well, I’m sure Schefter will get a lot of hate mail from Dallas fans now.

Hobbled Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Miles Austin was unable to participate in practice Thursday. The 29-year-old Austin suffered a strained hamstring against the Rams in Week 3 and is still battling the injury. Loaded with weapons, rookie Terrance Williams will likely again substitute for Austin on Sunday when the Denver Broncos (4-0) visit Arlington. Unfortunately for “The Boys...
This season is supposed to be different for the Dallas Cowboys. They brought in a new offensive coordinator in Bill Callahan and a new defensive coordinator in Monte Kiffin. Quarterback Tony Romo, who recently signed a 6-year, $108 million dollar contract extension ($55 million guaranteed), is having more say-so on what plays the offense will run. The defense would be better than...
