Should the Cowboys keep Mo Claiborne and Brandon Carr?

As the Cowboys off-season trugs along, questions have already started about the Cowboys situation in the defensive backfield. Should the team keep Morris Claiborne? He has just three interceptions in as many seasons and has a history of injuries. He played in just four games in 2014 because of a torn patellar tendon and has yet to play a full slate of 16 games. The Cowboys are faced...

Jerry Jones: Keeping Bryant, Murray ‘doesn’t look reasonable’

Geoff Burke-USA TODAY Sports Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said Thursday that it seems unlikely both Dez Bryant and DeMarco Murray will be on the team in 2015. “Is it possible?

Brrr! While Packers prep in cold, Cowboys appear unfazed

GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) A brisk wind blew through the open doors of the Hutson Center, turning the Green Bay Packers' indoor practice facility into an ice box. Bundled up in a heavy parka, the conditions felt just right to coach Mike McCarthy. In the cold, the Packers are in their element. It might be one edge that Green Bay could have ahead of Sunday's playoff game against the warm...

Cowboys respond to challenge in win over Eagles

If you want to get technical, the Dallas Cowboys weren't facing a do-or-die situation in Philadelphia on Sunday night. But the highly anticipated rematch of the Thanksgiving Day massacre sure carried that feeling.

Could This Be Brandon Carr’s Last Season in Dallas?

What may $7.5 million per season buy an NFL football team? An average cornerback with a propensity for failing to intercept passes. Well, at least that may be what the Dallas Cowboys are thinking after signing Brandon Carr to such a large contract. In 2012, Carr signed a five-year deal worth $50 million. Since then, Carr has gone a full season without recording an interception. That’s...

Cowboys facing tough run to make playoffs on road

The Dallas Cowboys have one home game remaining on the schedule. For this team, that should be cause for celebration. It's rare than an 8-4 team in the thick of a playoff race would be so eager to play a couple games away from home. But the Cowboys are 5-0 on the road and 3-4 at AT&T Stadium. They've provided a few reasonable explanations for this odd occurrence, most of them...

I usually write up my post game thoughts after the game, but I needed a day to decompress from such a lousy performance.

At 8-4, the Cowboys are still in the hunt, but with performance like they have had the...
