The Cowboys stand at 6-6 with four tough games (Cincinnati, Pittsburgh, New Orleans and Washington) remaining. Another season left out of even making the playoffs is highly likely. One of the primary reasons for the disappointing season is a pedestrian ground game. It is trendy to say the NFL is all about passing, but a balanced offense and a stingy defense still results in a lot of victories. Dallas is at the bottom of the NFL in 2012 with only 277 rushes for 989 yards (3.6 per) and 6 touchdowns. The Cowboys last season were 24th in rushing attempts, 30th in rushing touchdowns (only 5!) and 18th in yards. The failure to produce a strong rushing attack puts tremendous pressure on Tony Romo to make plays. The offensive line is the first place to evaluate when a team cannot run the ball. Dallas has skill position talent, but not much in the trenches. Left tackle, Tyron Smith, is the only Dallas offensive lineman that is gifted and whose best playing days are a...

A company called Unmetric has taken it upon themselves to see what NFL teams truly succeed in the world of social media.

Cowboys defensive coordinator Rob Ryan has said several times that the abundance of injuries on defense are not an excuse for poor play. It's probably in his best interest to continue saying that because his boss doesn't seem to think injuries should prevent Ryan's group from playing well, which they didn't do Sunday night.
The Cowboys, who held on for a 38-33 victory...
Tony Romo and his Dallas Cowboys certainly have had a tough time this season beating teams that suck in the 2012 season. They barley hung on to beat the Cleveland Browns and last night the Philadelphia Eagles gave them almost more than they could deal with a back up quarterback playing. The Cowboys did hold on to get the win over the Eagles but it took a solid effort by their defense...
The Cowboys move past the Eagles tonight, and move to 6-6 and somehow still in the playoff hunt. First thing, I’d like to mention is that we’re going to see some people go over board with this win, and think we’re back on track. We are not, the defense has slowly reverted back to its 2011 self, in some part due to injuries. Let’s quell the playoff talk people. There’s still...
Tony Romo has set a Dallas Cowboys record with his 166th touchdown pass, breaking a tie with Hall of Famer and three-time Super Bowl champion Troy Aikman.
Romo's record-breaking pass was a 23-yard touchdown to Dez Bryant in the third quarter of Sunday night's game against Philadelphia. It came in Romo's 89th career start.
Aikman started 165 games for the Cowboys from...
Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo is putting his money where his mouth is.
Romo is a spokesperson for the "Miracle of the Million" charity, having shot several promos for the organization over the last year.
On Monday, Romo stepped up and did what he's asked many to do during these spots.
Romo announced he is donating 1 million over the next three years to the...
Following a thrilling win at home against Philadelphia the Dallas Cowboys are back in the playoff hunt. The brightest performance from Sunday nights game came from wide receiver Dez Bryant who showcased nationally his ability to be a difference maker.
Bryant has been in the news multiple times this season, almost none of them for good reasons. Still, Cowboy fans are hoping that there...
It's been about three weeks since Tony Romo said on local radio that Dez Bryant had done a "180" in terms of his preparation for games. Those words seemed pretty hollow in light of the fact that Bryant had never been the picture of consistency during his first three years in the league.
But it turns out Tony may have been onto something. Bryant, who has made as many...
Cowboys running back DeMarco Murray (foot) is expected to play Sunday night versus Philadelphia, but Adam Schefter is reporting that the Cowboys will limit his workload.Fantasy Spin:Murray hasn't played since Oct. 14 because of sprained foot so this shouldn't be a surprise to fantasy owners. Murray and Felix Jones should share the carries until Murray is completely recovered.
ARLINGTON, Texas It hasn't been the case often this season, but the Cowboys found a way to play their best football in the fourth quarter Sunday night. They scored 21 points during that 15-minute stretch and outlasted the division rival Philadelphia Eagles 38-33.
Here are my five thoughts on the Cowboys improving to 6-6 on the year.
1.) The Cowboys have not traditionally played...
Context is something that is always required to understand what information you are looking at and how much of what seems real can actually be believed. Context tells us if all of this money that our paycheck contains is actually surplus, or whether it has been earmarked for other purposes already. Context tells us if losing 5 pounds is either the destination or the start of the...
Good tidings everyone and welcome, once again, to this quickly/drunkenly-typed blog post of one handsome man’s observations of Sunday Night Football as the world slides toward the end of another calendar year.
There is a recent report that states there is a strong possibility that Andy Reid will be the Cowboys coach next season. This would be fantastical. This would be like the...

Nothing I could write could appropriately describe just how awful this Eagles defense is, but the secondary is just the worst I’ve ever seen.
