First Round of the 2012 NFL Draft Proved to be a Failure for Most Teams

A total of 20 of the 32 first-round picks from the 2012 NFL draft saw their fifth-year options picked up by the deadline. That just goes to show us that many teams failed big time during the first day of that particular draft. In fact, four players—Mark Barron, Trent Richardson, Brandon Weeden and A.J. Jenkins—are no longer with their original teams. Former New York Giants running...

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...

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...

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...

Cowboys should go with Weeden vs. Cardinals

The Dallas Cowboys need to choose Brandon Weeden over Tony Romo, if only for one Sunday of this NFL season. It's not something they wanted to do, but it's a decision that's in the best interest of their playoff hopes and Romo's immediate future. There's no question Romo's intention is to try and gut it out against the Arizona Cardinals. He's played through cracked ribs and a punctured...

IRVING, Texas - Tony Romo's status is in doubt for Sunday's game with Arizona, but Cowboys backup quarterback Brandon Weeden has no doubt he will be prepared to step in. "I probably get more reps than any other backup quarterback in the league," Weeden said Wednesday. "I'm not complaining. I need them." Weeden gets those practice repetitions because Romo has taken Wednesdays off...

Just in case you missed this week’s edition of Monday Night Football, all the Pat Shurmur demons were exorcised on a field.

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.

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...
