Dez Bryant Made The Entire Jacksonville Defense Look Silly On His Way To A 35 Yard Touchdown

Last week, the Cowboys passing offense was downright awful as Dallas was stuck with Brandon Weeden under center. Dez Bryant did catch a touchdown last week, but he (and the rest of the Cowboys passing offense) was largely ineffectual against the Cardinals. Now, thanks to the return of Tony Romo (playing the Jaguars instead of Article found on: Next Impulse Sports

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...

Five Wild What Ifs

Through the first six games of the season the Cowboys looked like a team that finally turned the corner, but then came the trap game against the Redskins, and then came Brandon Weeden last week in place of Romo. All the sudden, the Cowboys are looking very mortal at 6-2 and a win against the Jaguars on Sunday is not guaranteed. Is this a must win game? Yes, hell yes it is. The Cowboys...

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...

Former Browns CEO takes shot at Weeden on Twitter

Former Cleveland Browns CEO Joe Banner has a lot of painful memories of quarterback Brandon Weeden. So when Weeden, who's now the backup for the Dallas Cowboys, was forced to step in for an injured Tony Romo on Sunday, Banner had a little chuckle watching him struggle against the Arizona Cardinals' defense.  Weeden was sacked 55 times and threw 26 interceptions in his two...

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...

Brandon Weeden’s Bad Day Gets Worse With Pick By Tyrann Mathieu

Week 9 Early Games: Cardinals 6-1. Wait, What?

That's right folks. One of the best teams in the NFL (tied with Denver for the league's best record) is none other than the Seattle Seahawks, Detroit Lions, New England Patriots, Arizona Cardinals. I believe this fact, combined with the Cleveland Browns having a winning record in November, is what was described in the bible as "Judgement Day". Or maybe I'm...

Arizona Cardinals at Dallas Cowboys: 2014 Week 9 NFL Pick

Arizona Cardinals (6-1) at Dallas Cowboys (6-2) Tony Romo is not expected to play in this game, but I like their chances of covering this spread even without him so I’m going to lock this pick in now while the line is still where it is. If Romo ends up playing, it’ll be an added bonus. The public is all over the Cardinals as 3 point underdogs here, which makes sense as the Cardinals...
