For Some Reason, Jerry Jones Named NFL Executive of the Year

This isn’t a headline from a satirical magazine. the Pro Football Writers of America actually named Dallas Cowboys general manager and owner Jerry Jones as its NFL Executive of the Year. The reasoning behind this is clear, and somewhat odd. Dallas finished the 2014 campaign with a 12-4 record, its best since 2007. And after three consecutive Week 17 losses to lose out on the NFC...

Will Melton and Free be with Cowboys in 2015?

After this week the Cowboys will be 1/4 through the season, and there are rumblings that Henry Melton is not looking like the player we had hoped he would be.

Dallas Cowboys: Why drafting a defensive tackle is biggest need

Henry Melton For the Dallas Cowboys, no position group has been hit harder this offseason than the defensive line. Two of their best players–not just linemen, mind you, but players–are gone, DeMarcus Ware to the Broncos and Jason Hatcher to the hated Redskins. That’s why drafting a defensive tackle is crucial to the success of this 2014 team. It is easily Dallas’s biggest...
