Brandon Weeden: ‘I don’t want to be 50 and not be able to know my kids’ names’

Dallas Cowboys backup quarterback Brandon Weeden sustained a concussion in the team’s second preseason game against the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday. The quarterback says it was the third concussion of his career, and he admits he is concerned about the long-term effects that can occur from getting concussions: “If you’re ankle’s hurt, yeah, I’m fine throw some tape...

Is the Dallas Cowboys abysmal showing on offense against the San Francisco 49ers a concern?

The Dallas Cowboys showed signs of life on Sunday night against the San Francisco 49ers but I am not sure what kind of life it showed.  The offense was horrible as Dustin Vaughn took a majority of the snaps.  Number two backup Brandon Weeden was taken out of the game early with “concussion-like” symptoms after taking a nasty hit to the head in the second quarter. From there...

POLL: Less Likely to Make the Team?

The Cowboys are not heavily invested financially in Brandon Weeden or Darren McFadden. One player has not been very good on the field and the other cannot stay healthy enough to get on the field. That being said, I’m not sure either player is a lock to make this team at the end of the day unless they turn up their game. Weeden is scheduled to make $660K, but does not have any guaranteed...

"God forbig I am forced to play," the 31-year-old Weeden told the Dallas Morning News. Of course, if Weeden got into a game, that would mean Romo is hurt, which would not be good for the Cowboys, but it's rare to...

Dallas Cowboys: Home field advantage is necessary for success in 2015

Game one of the 2014 NFL Season began with the Cowboys opening their schedule against the 49ers. No we aren’t touching on how the game itself transpired. Instead, what I want you to do is to focus on what we saw in the stadium itself. AT&T Stadium (commonly referred to as “Jerry’s World”) was filled to capacity. That’s not the crazy part though.

Mike Gundy Says His 2011 Oklahoma State Team Would’ve Crushed LSU In BCS Title Game

Could OSU’s ’11 team have beaten LSU? Mike Gundy has never reached the national championship game as Oklahoma State’s football coach. He came very close in 2011, though.    The Cowboys went 11-1 during the regular season, but finished No. 3 in the final BCS standings. They trailed No. 2 Alabama by the smallest margin in the history of the BCS rankings. The Crimson Tide went...

Dallas Cowboys QB Brandon Weeden deemed NFL’s biggest Week 9 goat

Midway through the 2014 NFL season (and a little more for some teams), the league is starting to take shape. It’s easier and easier to see what teams are contenders and which ones are just not ready for primetime. How did each team get to their current point? In part, it was because of the performance, good or bad, of some key players and coaches. Some helped their team, while...

VIDEO: Dallas Cowboys could not be more disappointed by Brandon Weeden

Weeden disappoints in opportunity to lead Cowboys' offense

ARLINGTON, Texas - Brandon Weeden looked about as bad Sunday as Tony Romo's back feels. Starting in place of an injured Romo, Weeden was a miserable 18-of-33 passing for 183 yards with two interceptions against Arizona. His numbers would have looked a lot worse without a meaningless 80 yards passing and a touchdown on a garbage-time drive. By then the Cardinals had the game well...
