If you had all of the Dallas Cowboys from all time, how would you fill out a three-deep depth chart at each position?
This is the question I asked myself and set out to answer.
The answer is not as easy to come by as you think. There are some hard decisions to make. Roger Staubach or Troy Aikman? Tony Dorsett or Emmitt Smith?
The exercise is also telling in that it reveals positions of incredible strength through the years, such as quarterback, halfback, tight end, defensive tackle and cornerback. It also reveals some positions that have been mostly anchored by less-than-illustrious players, such as right guard, free safety (with apologies to Cliff Harris) and kicker.
Rafael Septien is the obvious choice at kicker, since he was the all-time leading scorer for the team at one time, but his career has a harsh asterisk on it. Septien was charged with a deplorable sex offense.
One thing that has to be decided is whether to use the 4-3 or the 3-4 defensive alignment. Sinc...

About a week ago, Dallas Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett wasn’t open to giving up his play-calling duties.I’m sure Garrett had a nice little talk with owner Jerry Jones because now he’s changed his mind and is open to bringing in an offensive coordinator to call plays.“We would just talk it through,” Garrett said of a potential discussion with owner Jerry Jones during...
Ever since quarterback Tony Romo took over as the starter for the Dallas Cowboys in 2006, he has put up stellar numbers year after year only to fall short on the scoreboard in spotlight games. The 2012 season proved to be another one of those seasons for the Cowboys.When it comes to talking about Tony Romo, there are clearly two sides to that battle.There is the side that defends...
It seems Rex Ryan isn't the only one who recently hid out in the Caribbean.
A source exclusively tells Helmet2Helmet that Cowboys owner Jerry Jones flew directly from Washington, D.C. to St. Maarten island in the early hours of Monday morning.
Jones presumably bolted immediately out of FedEx Field, where his team's season ended following a loss to the Redskins.
An autopsy on Cowboys player Jerry Brown has found that he was sober when he was killed in the car crash that led to the arrest and charge of his friend and teammate Josh Brent for intoxicated manslaughter.
I realize that today is normally reserved for the defensive breakdowns, but I have decided to hold off until tomorrow (what is the rush, really, with the next game in about 9 months?) so that we may discuss the Cowboys "news of the day" and speak on something I am being asked quite a bit about.
Yesterday, on his radio show Jerry Jones offered the following quote: "...
As we sift through the rubble of another late-season failure, we are constantly reminded that the defense was hit with circumstances that nearly made their tasks impossible by the end of the year. The inside linebackers were different, the safeties were different, and the defensive line was different than what left training camp. Only the 2 outside linebackers and the 2 starting...
DALLAS (AP) -- An autopsy has found that Dallas Cowboys practice squad player Jerry Brown Jr. was sober when he was killed in a crash that led to an intoxication manslaughter charge against the teammate at the wheel.
The Dallas County Medical Examiner's Office reported Thursday that Brown died of head and neck trauma when their vehicle overturned. He had a dislocated neck, a...
USC 2013 commit Jason Hatcher spoke with FOX Sports NEXT following day two of practice at the Army All-American Bowl. Hatcher has four official visits still left on his schedule, including his trip to Los Angeles.
Following another disappointing season, Dallas Cowboys owner
and general manager Jerry Jones said changes will be coming in the next few
weeks during an interview with 105.3 The Fan.
“If you don’t do something, almost unconventional, then you
really don’t break out of that cycle,” said Jones, who then highlighted the
Herschel Walker trade of 1989. “But how do we somehow...
Mediocrity is not something that sits well with Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones, and in recent years, he’s seen plenty of it from his team on the field. In fact since the Cowboys last Super Bowl win in 1995, Dallas has posted a tepid 141-140 overall record. Dallas finished the 2012 season at 8-8, while a .500 record would have been welcome in say, Jacksonville this season, another...
