OK, another Saturday morning is here, so let's knock out a weekend Cowboys mailbag! Generally, when I do this during this time of year, about three guys a week will ask why we are talking Cowboys now? Nothing is going on? How can you guys possibly talk Cowboys in May and June?
Here's how: We look at real issues and real items that are on our mind. Football is now 52 weeks a year, and with film study and new players to discuss, there is always time for Cowboys talk. So, if you have your favorite NFL team on your mind, let's go.
Here are some links to get you started:

Dallas Cowboys Pro-Bowl defensive end DeMarcus Ware appeared
on Sportscenter talking about the Cowboys preparation for the upcoming season.

If you want a straight answer at Valley Ranch these days, just make sure you don't talk to more than one person. New Cowboys secondary coach Jerome Henderson informed us last week he could envision a scenario in which four cornerbacks could be on the field at the same time.
Whether or not he was simply being kind to the disgruntled Mike Jenkins, it seemed like a bold idea. Henderson...

For Big Blue, six games out of every 16-game schedule are against their NFC East Division Rivals: Dallas Cowboys, Philadelphia Eagles and Washington Redskins. The 2011 New York Football Giants swept Dallas, split with Philadelphia and went winless against Washington. How will this slightly changed 2012 Giants team fair against each?

“Hot start for the Rangers, you say? I’ll take care of that…” ROMO’D
Tony Romo’s tendency to be terrible is well-documented here at Mild Mannered. He’s often the feature of our Biggest Meltdowns feature and has found ways to undermine the Dallas Cowboys in the biggest moments of a game. He’s so terrible, we’ve turned his name into a verb, and you do not want your...
