Lone Star Struck:
Morris Claiborne: Just what the doctor ordered?
Are the Cowboys going to be a profitable team to back with your free NFL football picks? We give you an update on how things are shaping up for Dallas.
The Cowboys suffered another late-season collapse in 2011.
They got off to a fast start as they were 7-4 after Week 12, and that included a hard-fought 27-24 road win over the San Francisco 49ers.
However, the wheels completely fell off over the last month of the season. Dallas lost four of their last five, including both games against the eventual champion New York Giants.
A significant reason for the collapse was a god awful secondary which was torched week after week.
The Cowboys did an excellent job at addressing that need over the offseason, though. They went out and got Brandon Carr and then drafted Morris Claiborne and those two will immediately step in and start.
A fully functioning secondary will help the Cowboys defend the pass, with DeMarcus Ware still wrecking havoc closer...

With every passing year a team that doesn't win a championship sees their window of opportunity start to slam shut. Back in May, Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said that the Dallas Cowboys' window is starting to close and said that the team needed to win now.
Count defensive end DeMarcus Ware as one who is on board with Jones' assessment.
“I feel like from...
Here we go again! It’s time for Tony Romo vs. Eli Manning. The experts like Ron Jaworski have Romo ranked as the 10th best QB in the NFL. He has not ranked the top five yet, but Manning will do no worse than number five on his list. The NFLN recently completed their list of the top 100 players as voted by the players and Romo is ranked 91st and Manning is ranked 31st. What...
Curtis Clay went from former walk-on at TCU to earning a tryout with the Dallas Cowboys. Now he's helping players fulfill the same kind of dreams.
After spending four unproductive (yet controversial) years with the Cowboys, Martellus Bennett signed with the Giants in March. And now the tight end appears to already be criticizing his former quarterback, Tony Romo.
In an interview with Newark’s The Star-Ledger, Bennett made comments that could be interpreted as taking a dig at Romo, suggesting the Cowboys quarterback played...
I looked back to the tapes of the very first week of the 2011 regular season when the Dallas Cowboys came into New York to play the Jets.
During the first five minutes of the game Cowboys wide receiver, Dez Bryant, showed flashes of greatness, and more of what I believe he will bring to the Cowboys’ offense, as well as your fantasy league in 2012.
In the first minute, Cowboys...
Former New York Giants wide receiver Amani Toomer co-hosts a show with Tim Ryan on SiriusXM NFL Radio called 'Moving the Chains', and he isn't shy about calling it like he sees it, no matter how wrong everyone else might think he is.
Toomer and Ryan discussed the two QBs today and the former Giant had this to say:
“Tony Romo is probably, if you look at it statistically...
Christian Petersen/Getty ImagesAfter playing with the Dallas Cowboys his whole career, tight end Martellus Bennett decided to sign with his rival, the New York Giants, this off-season. Bennett never really excelled like he was supposed to in Dallas and Bennett claims it was due to Tony Romo playing favorites with his offense, according to Newark Star-Ledger.
Bennett now plays with...
I've been a big University of Michigan fan for almost 30 years, and stand up for them during good (Schembechler, Moeller, Carr and hopefully Hoke) or bad (Rich Rodriguez) seasons, but the comment Wolverine alumni and former NY Giants WR Amani Toomer made about Dallas QB Tony Romo being better than NY Giant QB Eli manning is way off.
Toomer, who is now working in media for MSG...
This is why I'd take Manning over Romo in a heartbeat.
Anytime someone talks about Tony Romo as an elite quarterback, I tend to cringe a little and walk away. Every now and then, someone like Amani Toomer compares Romo to another established quarterback, in this case Eli Manning, and says Romo is the better quarterback. From a purely numbers perspective, Tony Romo is a very...
Now that he's no longer second fiddle to Jason Witten, former Cowboys tight end Martellus Bennett apparently thinks Tony Romo is playing out of tune. Bennett, who signed with the New York Giants this offseason, had nothing but praise for his new quarterback, Eli Manning, in a recent interview on the Newark Star-Ledger's website, nj.com. But in doing so, he took an indirect...
