Found September 25, 2013 on Larry Brown Sports:

Report: Cowboys not willing to trade Miles Austin

Despite a report earlier from Michael Schottey of Bleacher Report,  the Cowboys aren’t willing to trade wide receiver Miles Austin, according to Mark O’Hara. Dallas source says rule out Miles Austin as possible WR for Lions. Cowboys all in to win weak NFC Least, with Wash., Philly. Giants in tank. This is exactly what I thought.  It would make zero sense for Dallas to get rid...

Dez Bryant this weeks top WR given Calvin Johnson's history with Peanut (Week 4 Fantasy Football Ranks)

Dez Bryant takes the top receiver spot this week. I’m not truly down on Calvin Johnson, but, in 2012 he caught just eight balls on 25 targets for 105 yards and no touchdowns in his two meetings with the Bears. Bryant, meanwhile, draws a Chargers D giving up the 2nd most points in the league to opposing WRs. Tony Romo comes in at #4, his highest rank of the season, against the...

Cowboys veteran Waters ready for starting role at guard

IRVING, Texas Cowboys veteran guard Brian Waters appears ready to start at right guard on Sunday in San Diego. Waters, a last-minute addition before the season opener, has split time with Mackenzy Bernadeau the last two games while working himself back into football shape. On Wednesday, Waters took snaps with the first team during practice. "My plan was to try to get there...

Dwayne Harris Deserves More Playing Time for the Dallas Cowboys

Dwayne Harris (@dallascowboys) When the Dallas Cowboys selected Baylor standout Terrence Williams in the third round of this year’s NFL draft, it was a forgone conclusion that he would be the new third receiver for the Dallas offense. And why wouldn’t he be, right? After all, in his senior year, Williams led the country in receiving with 1,832 yards. And, over the course of...

More time in the pocket means better throws for Romo

IRVING, Texas Through three games, Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo has thrown just one interception in 115 passing attempts. He's been able to protect the ball, and produce a 103.9 QB rating, because he's making fewer throws under pressure thanks to a retooled offensive line. "I'm having a little bit more time in the pocket, which means you're not throwing as...

Emmitt Smith: If Cowboys establish the running game, I expect championship seasons

No one should be surprised that Emmitt Smith wants the Dallas Cowboys to make a commitment to the running game. Led by DeMarco Murrays 175-yard rushing performance on Sunday, the Cowboys improved to 2-1 with a 31-7 blowout victory over the St. Louis Rams. The NFLs all-time leading rusher liked what he saw, but he wants more. "I know publicly weve said that we want to run...

Cowboys offensive line key to Super Bowl chances

Let’s face it, if the Dallas Cowboys are to make it to Superbowl XLVIII, it will solely rely on the Cowboys offensive line. Not to mention ingenious audibles by Tony Romo. True, the defense must withstand offensive surges from the opposing team, but if the offensive line can block left, block right, and open up holes up the middle for DeMarco Murray then the Dallas Cowboys will...

Cowboys' Anthony Spencer out for the season

Dallas Cowboys defensive end Anthony Spencer's season has ended after playing only one game. Just two months after undergoing arthroscopic surgery on his left knee, Spencer will have to go under once again for a season-ending procedure on the same knee, according to Spencer's agent Jordan Woy.Doctors believe Spencer will be "100 percent" by either January or...

Flashback: What really happened to the Cowboys in the 1980 NFC Championship game?

When it comes to all the great games the Cowboys have played in their history I have no problem writing articles about them and trying to relive them the best I can through words, but what about some of the big losses in their history? People may find it strange that some of the Cowboys big losses intrigue me as [...]The post Flashback: What really happened to the Cowboys in...

Dallas Cowboys: 2013 Week 4 NFL Power Rankings (#8)

Last week: 7 (-1) The Cowboys have more wins than the rest of the NFC East combined and are the only team in the division to win a game outside of the division. They look like the clear favorites, though the loss of Anthony Spencer hurts. It especially hurts him as he’s one of two franchise tagged players (Henry Melton) done for the season. Jairus Byrd, meanwhile, has yet to play...

Cowboys' Bryant could be in a for big day versus Chargers

IRVING, Texas Dez Bryant says he isn't licking his chops looking at the San Diego defense, but he probably should be. The Chargers rank last in the NFL in pass defense, allowing an average of 340.7 yards per game. "I'm telling you the truth, I really don't pay attention to it," the Cowboys' receiver said. "We go out and we practice and we watch them...

Jerry Jones Denies Report That Tony Romo Was Called Out In Team Meeting

Jerry Jones isn’t going to have people just walking around talking trash about his quarterback. On the heels of the Cowboys thumping of the St. Louis Rams, Jones made it a point to make it clear that Romo wasn’t called out by Jason Hatcher in a team meeting because Romo consistently audibles out of runs. “There was absolutely – and I emphasize absolutely – no reference...

Dallas Cowboys-San Diego Chargers Week 4 Preview and Prediction

The Dallas Cowboys (2-1) and the San Diego Chargers (1-2) will enter their Week 4 showdown Sunday at Qualcomm Stadium cautiously optimistic that the critical flaws which plagued their respective squads last year have been rectified. For Dallas, a mediocre season from quarterback Tony Romo, a non-existent running attack, and a defense prone to inconsistency and late game collapses...

Cowboys' Spencer needs knee surgery

Dallas defensive end Anthony Spencer will have season-ending surgery on his left knee and may have played his last game for the Cowboys.

Cowboys-Chargers Preview

The only game the Dallas Cowboys lost is the only one in which Anthony Spencer played. That sure doesn't mean they wish it was his last of 2013. Unfortunately for the Cowboys, that's exactly the case. Then again, their DeMarcus Ware-led pass rush is a big reason they are the lone NFC East team above .500 heading into Sunday's road game against the San Diego Chargers...
