5 Worst Picks from the 2012 NFL Draft

It’s hard to gauge how teams performed in a specific draft until years down the road. Those who put up grades and rankings just days after the draft has taken place are basing their opinions on pure conjecture. In order to really understand how a team did during the draft, we have to wait at least two years. That’s what Sportsnaut will be doing over the next couple weeks. Our...

Film Room: What is the Dallas Cowboys offense missing?

Forget Tony Romo’s back, the offensive line injuries and last week’s performance by Brandon Weeden. The Cowboys offense the last month has looked like it has been missing a little something extra. Maybe it’s because I’ve watched offenses like Pittsburgh, Indianapolis and New England light up the scoreboard of late and am envious of those teams. But Dallas has struggled to...

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

Whoever said that Tony Romo is overrated clearly hasn’t seen Brandon Weeden in action much. Yesterday Weeden subbed for an ailing Romo as the Dallas Cowboys’ starting quarteback against the Arizona Cardinals. Things didn’t go quite as well as the Cowboys hoped. This video of the Cowboys sideline sums up how the team felt about his performance. Dez Bryant, Demarco Murray, and...

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...

The chances of Brandon Weeden being under center for the Dallas Cowboys in Sunday’s game against the Arizona Cardinals appear to be growing by the day. Speaking to reporters after Friday’s practice, Cowboys offensive coordinator Scott Linehan called it “rare” that a quarterback misses an entire week of practice and then plays. Tony Romo is not at practice. I asked Scott...

With Tony Romo Hurt, Should Brandon Weeden Start?

To play or not to play Tony Romo.  That would be Billy Shakespeare’s question were he a Cowboys fan. Such a cut-and-dried conundrum would seem simple by nature, but of course, there’s nothing simple in Cowboyland, where owners play doctor and hopes hinge on the magic lumbar of a Cinderella-storied, beloved, and equally detested quarterback.... -- Click the title above to read...

Weeden waits as Cowboys monitor Romo's balky back

IRVING, Texas (AP) Brandon Weeden was putting on his ball cap after leading scoring drives on the only two possessions Tony Romo missed against Washington when he felt a tap and turned to see the Dallas starter. ''Hey man, hell of a job. I'm going back in,'' Weeden said Romo told him. With that, Weeden's day was done in a 20-17 overtime loss. The Redskins sent Romo to the locker...

Dreams Fulfilled: Colt McCoy defeats Brandon Weeden on Monday Night Football

Just in case you missed this week’s edition of Monday Night Football, all the Pat Shurmur demons were exorcised on a field. Former Cleveland Browns quarterback Colt McCoy got the start for the Washington Redskins, and while we never root for injuries, I’d be lying if I said it didn’t feel somehow right with the universe that another former Browns quarterback in Brandon Weeden...

Cleveland twitter explodes as Weeden vs McCoy becomes Monday night reality

Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo was hurt on a sack with just under 8:00 remaining in the third quarter. The injury forced the Cowboys insert their second string quarterback-- Brandon Weeden-- into the game.  The pass attempts were Weeden's first as a member of the Cowboys, but set up an interesting confrontation as the starting quarterback on the other side of the ball was...

Dallas Cowboys QB Brandon Weeden named a top-5 goat in NFL from last week

Most people consider the final preseason game as a throwaway; regular starters don’t play, so it’s reserved mostly for guys who will be selling insurance three days later. But that notion, while grounded in some element of truth, isn’t 100 percent accurate. In fact, some on the bubble were able to play their way onto (and off of) rosters last week.

Offensive scouting report after preseason game one

A lot of people seemed to be shocked by Brandon Weeden so far in the pre-season, but he looks like the same guy I saw on tape in Cleveland. When you give Weeden a nice pocket, he has the arm strength to make every throw on the field. He really struggles when things get muddy around his feet. His touchdown throw to James Hanna was probably the best throw outside of the pocket of his...
