The Dallas Cowboys appeared to finally get their act together last season on offense thanks to their ability to establish a running game, something they have not been able to do for some time.

Improving the defensive line is imperative for the Dallas Cowboys

It’s crystal clear that Dallas’ top off-season priority is to retain both Dez Bryant and DeMarco Murray, two top-flight players at the receiver and running back position. The Cowboys are likely to place the franchise tag on Bryant, but when it comes to re-signing Murray, the outlook seems dreary on whether or not the Cowboys will pay him top dollar to remain the workhorse of...

As the Cowboys Turn

Sometimes, dem boys are like a soap opera.

Should the St. Louis Rams consider a RB during free agency?

Heading into last season, the general consensus in the NFL was that running the football isn’t as important as it used to be.
