Dallas Crushes New Orleans 38-17

We all saw this game coming, right? The Dallas Cowboys opened with an almost flawless first half in all phases of the game. It was probably the best half of football the team has played under Jason Garrett, and they were able to play well enough in the second half to get a 38-17 win that was a thorough beating of the New Orleans Saints. They opened with a marvelously efficient 80...

Surprising NFL Stats Through Week 3

Cowboys Top Rams With Franchise Record Rally

When Bruce Carter’s pick-six gave the Cowboys a 34-24 lead with six minutes to play against the Rams, it seemed less like a game-sealer and more like an indicator of further craziness to come. That’s precisely what happened, and that’s exactly the type of drama that comes with biggest non-overtime comeback in the Cowboys’ history. Dallas trailed by as many as 21 points on...

Dallas 34, St. Louis 31: Improbable Life

Bruce Carter recorded not only his first career interception but also his first career touchdown. Good timing. It came as no big surprise when DeMarco Murray fumbled on the Cowboys’ first offensive drive of Sunday’s game against the St. Louis Rams. It was the third time in three games that Murray had lost a fumble early in the game. It was hardly a shock that Tony Romo threw...

At the beginning of training camp Carter looked to be the only linebacker who was not in danger of losing his starting spot.

Cowboys preparing the Tsunami Effect

  (credit: dallascowboys.com) There has been a lot of chatter about the Marinelli Wave that is planned for the Cowboys’ defensive line, but this is merely the calm before the storm. Look for more of a Tsunami effect from the energized, new youth movement on both sides of the ball. While sadly having to move on from some older, respected players, the team has brought in a solid...

Bruce Carter Due for a Breakout Season

I have a confession to make: I am a huge closet Bruce Carter fan. No, I really am. When the Cowboys drafted Carter with the #40 pick in the second round back in 2011, I thought they really found a gem of a player. This guy had a tremendous college career at North Carolina and he had the one thing that I’m a sucker for: freakish raw athleticism. He has ideal size, speed, and agility...

What should we expect from Bruce Carter in 2014?

We are now going into the fourth year of Bruce Carter’s career, and I have no idea what to think of him overall in Dallas. There’s times in his career he has looked fantastic and I’ve thought that him and Sean Lee could potentially become the best linebacker pairing in the NFL. But then I re-watch the games from 2013 and believe DeVonte Holloman should be starting over him...

Cowboys Slap Bruce Carter Awake

The Dallas Cowboys had the lines of communication flowing at this year’s draft, and outside linebacker Bruce Carter was the recipient of a very clear message.

Could the Cowboys be in the market for a Guard or Linebacker?

It seems as though every offseason, the Cowboys bring in a ton of guys to work out who end up making their way on to the roster. However those guys making the team isn’t necessarily a good thing as it usually means an injury somewhere else. What if the Cowboys instead took a different approach and tried to improve by taking advantage of their nine picks. I have a feeling that is...
