When the Dallas Cowboys take on the Seattle Seahawks, there will be a lot of focus on shutting down the Seahawks offense. After a rather vanilla game plan last week vs. Arizona, Dallas will look to take advantage of rookie QB Russell Wilson and force him into mistakes. They will also likely stuff the box full of run stoppers to try and account for Marshawn Lynch.
Lynch represents the type of running back that no one wants to play against. He runs hard–very hard–and seems to run harder as the game progresses (just ask the New Orleans Saints). Even while Dallas defeated the Seahawks at Cowboys Stadium last year, Lynch got his numbers. He finished with 135 yards and a touchdown, single handedly keeping the Seahawks in the game.
Let’s hope we see none of this on Sunday (John Lok / The Seattle Times)
Yet, at least for us here at DC101, Lynch is not the scariest member of the Seahawks’ backfield. Sean Lee and company should be able to shut down “Beast Mode” before it begins. That distin...

I’m sure like all fans, we are just pissed off beyond belief and with plenty reason. The Cowboys let us down, simple as that. Here we are thinking the Cowboys turned the corner after a great win on the road against the champs, but then they don’t even show up in Seattle. So much for thinking the Cowboys were returning to the 90′s, no these are the same ole Cowboys – inconsistent...
In an interview with Jarrett Bell of USA Today, Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones was asked about Dez Bryant’s off the field problems. Jones said that Bryant had to show the people around him that he’s serious about changing his life.
“Dez needed to show his constituents that he was serious, and meant business,” said Jones.
Jones was then asked if Bryant would still be a...

Dallas Cowboys defensive tackle Jay Ratliff is out this Sunday against the Seattle Seahawks with an ankle injury.
Ratliff also missed the season opener last week against the New York Giants. Josh Brent will start again in Ratliff's place.
"He's making progress. He's getting better every day and trying to do more and more," coach Jason Garrett told the Dallas...
Seattle Seahawks wide receiver Golden Tate isn't exactly known as guy who delivers punishing hits but he decided to show off his blocking skills against the Dallas Cowboys.
As Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson got outside the pocket to run for a first down, Tate laid out Cowboys linebacker Sean Lee with a nasty hit:
The Dallas Cowboys have learned the hard way the cost of dealing on the open market and even more so when they have missed on a player like Ken Hamlin and Roy Williams recently. The Cowboys let Chris Canty hit free agency in 2008 and he left for New York with a big paycheck, so they know the cost of a premium defensive lineman who can play the run and pass well.In 2007 the Cowboys...
Wide receivers Cole Beasley and Andre Holmes are among the Cowboys seven inactive players Sunday at Seattle.
Also inactive for the Cowboys are cornerback Mario Butler, rookie safety Matt Johnson (hamstring injury), rookie linebacker Kyle Wilber, starting center Phil Costa (back injury) and starting nose tackle Jay Ratliff (high ankle sprain).
So, that means that second-year...
Cowboys Pro Bowl nose tackle Jay Ratliff and starting center Phil Costa wont play Sunday at Seattle. Rookie safety Matt Johnson has also been ruled out.
Ratliff and Costa havent practiced all week because of injuries. Ratliff suffered a high ankle sprain in the preseason and didnt play in the season opener at the Giants.
Hes making progress. Hes getting better every...
Earlier today Ed Werder of ESPN reported that the Cowboys and the reps of Tony Romo have had preliminary discussions towards getting a contract extension done.
According to Mike Florio of PoFootballTalk.com, Cowboys owner Jerry Jones says they’re not looking to extend Romo’s contract.
Florio also mentioned that a source told him that an extension is unlikely right now.
These are four things Seattle must do to win their home opener. They need to keep rookie quarterback Russell Wilson upright and out of trouble. They need to establish and utilize a run game. They need to stop a very good running back in DeMarco Murray. Put pressure on Tony Romo. Finally they need to win the turnover battle.
Russell Wilson had a rough start to the season...
According to Albert Breer of NFL.com, replacement field judge Jeff Sardorus, a former PAC-12 official who was part of the crew for the Week 1 game between the Seattle Seahawks and Arizona Cardinals, had officiated Seahawks practices each of the last three seasons (though not 2012) despite the fact that it's a direct violation of the NFL's supposed rules regarding conflict...
ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. -- There was a lot of head-scratching when the Buffalo Bills used the No. 9 overall pick in the 2010 NFL draft on C.J. Spiller. With Fred Jackson and Marshawn Lynch already on the depth chart and a roster full of questions to answer, running back seemed to be the last position Buffalo needed to address. Two games into Spiller’s third season, no one is scratching...
