The following is part 1 of a 2-part series, where we take a look at the two most likely candidates to be the Cowboys top target in free agency as they attempt to fix their cornerback issues. Tomorrow, we will break down Cortland Finnegan in the same manner, and attempt to render a decision. Brandon Carr - Grand Valley State - Born: May 19, 1986 As the 5th round of the 2008 NFL Draft was starting, most football fans had found something else to do with their time. Drafts carry big ratings numbers and intrigue early on, but the late stages are only for the hardest of hard core folks, and the people that make or break their personnel department careers on finding gems when 135 players have already been picked over in the first 4 rounds. The Cowboys picked 8th in the 5th round, and had already taken a cornerback in the 1st round (Mike Jenkins) and wanted to find some more depth now in the 5th. The fifth pick of the round was Kansas City, who also selected a cornerback earlier in the w...

The whole NFL is rapidly approaching the start of Free Agency. The benefit of having free agency before the draft is that teams can address needs with veterans if they want.  Right now there is only one position I would say cannot use an upgrade and that is kicker.

History in Quotes: Cowboys vs. Rams in the Playoffs

Here are some quotes related to two of those games. “I just got pushed back. He didn’t mark it where I caught it…It’s one of those things you have to live with, I guess. You can’t change it now.” Billy Joe DuPree regarding a reception...

Dallas Cowboys: Season in Review Doomed from the Start

The Dallas Cowboys finished like I thought they would, 8-8. This is a time when I hate being right. Of the six winnable games for Dallas they lost only one, Arizona. I said for them to be successful they needed to win 4 of their 6 divisional games and beat the Jets. They did neither of these and so they ended up with only 8 wins. The only team they defeated with more than 8 wins...
