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.

He hasn’t been seen in awhile, at least on the football field. The only vision of Tim Tebow of late has been on the SEC Network, where he currently is filling the role of a college football analyst. While that gig helps pass the time, and brings in a paycheck, the former Heisman Trophy winner still itches to get back in the game. The quarterback who electrified the league with...

Cowboys Have Romo on Pitch Count; Velocity Still Missing From Throws

There is no such thing as minor back surgery. There is a very good chance that Romo will never be the same again, that doesn’t mean he can’t be an effective quarterback, it just means the Cowboys may have to tailor their offense more around the short passing game. CBS Sports has a breakdown on what is going on with Romo’s back. More often than not Romo is watching Brandon Weeden...

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...
