BARRY CHURCH RUMORS & GOSSIP

Barry Church: If Cowboys can get healthy on defense, 'the sky's the limit for us'

Jerry Jones doesn't want fans believing this year's Dallas Cowboys defense could be worse than last year's. An owner admitting to his customers that his team could have the worst defense in NFL history is obviously not good for business. Jones revealed his reasons to be optimistic on Friday. A few defensive starters did the same after Saturday night's 37-30 preseason...

Examining the Cowboys belief in Church

(credit: post-gazette.com)   This week I shall take an examining look at the Dallas Cowboys’ belief in Church. It was in the third game of the 2012 season when safety Barry Church ruptured his Achilles tendon. Barry was off to a promising start that year after having to fight his way onto the roster in 2010. Things looked pretty dark for his future. In an amazing act, the Dallas...

What does the future hold for Barry Church?

Barry Church fascinates me. The raw numbers are there. The consistency is there. But is he just an average player putting up some good stats on a bad defense? Or is he a hidden gem that is suffering due to his porous teammates? Church had 107 solo tackles in 2013. No other safety in the NFL had more than 88. Church finished 8th in the league in tackles with 135 total tackles. That...

Report: Church gets free PEEPS after Jolly Rancher accident

Dallas Cowboys safety Barry Church would be wise to stay away from the sweets after a recent visit to the dentist. But he just can't say no to a recent gift. Church needed a root canal earlier this week after chipping his tooth on a Jolly Rancher. The cherry-flavored piece of candy forced him to miss practice at Cowboys training camp on Monday. Following the procedure,...

Church loves Jolly Ranchers and was munching away on a cherry one when he chipped his tooth.

While NFL players are dropping like flies with season ending injuries barely a few days into training camp, Cowboys safety Barry Church had a wholly unique, and truly bizarre, reason for missing Dallas’ Monday practice.
