NFC East: Which 2015 Defense Has the Most Potential?

None of these defenses will go down in historic fashion based on their performances in 2014. While every team has a few things they can hang their hat on, their deficiencies were quite obvious over the course of the season. Heading into the acquisition part of the offseason, each team stands to improve its defense. In fact, it is the weaker side of the ball for each one of these...

Cowboys' four trends to beating Green Bay

GREEN BAY, Wis. -- The Cowboys have arrived in Green Bay today and before going to the hotel are checking out Lambeau Field. It's a smart move by coach Jason Garrett designed to remove some of the "mystique'' of the place a day in advance.  But, says Jeremy Mincey, the Cowboys already understand the nature of this playoff-game business trip. "We're not going there for a history...

Cowboys: McClain and Mincey have not been cleared

In what could prove to be disastrous for their defense, the Dallas Cowboys have yet to have linebacker Rolando McClain or defensive end Jeremy Mincey cleared for practice. Both Mincey and McClain have been key pieces to a no-name Cowboys defense which has far exceeded expectations this season under first year defensive coordinator Rod Marinelli.

3.5-magnitude earthquake shakes Cowboys' facility

Given the looming trip to play in Green Bay this weekend, there's been plenty of talk around the Cowboys' facility about snow and ice. But what about earthquakes? Hardly known as a hotspot for seismic activity, the Dallas-Forth Worth area was shaken by the short shock of a 3.5 magnitude earthquake on Tuesday afternoon. The brief earthquake was actually centered around the location...

Cowboys take bounce-back D into Detroit game

IRVING, Texas (AP) The Cowboys had their roughest day on defense when they lost to Philadelphia on Thanksgiving to raise doubts about their playoff hopes. They responded with four straight games that were anywhere from good to great on a December winning streak that ended a four-year postseason drought. ''We took a butt-kicking like men,'' said defensive end Jeremy Mincey, ''and...

Cowboys DE Mincey: Nobody backing down because Suh is playing

Roughly 24 hours after suspending him for Sunday's wildcard matchup against the Cowboys, the NFL has reinstated Detroit defense tackle Ndamukong Suh. Suh had been suspended one game for stepping on the injured calf of Green Bay quarterback Aaron Rodgers. On Tuesday, the league rescinded that decision and opted to fine Suh $70,000 for the offense. He will be eligible to play when...

Emotional Cowboys impressively take NFC East

The rout was on early, freeing the Cowboys - 42-7 winners over the visiting Colts on Sunday - to launch into a still-work-to-be-done celebration of the franchise's first playoff appearance since 2009 and the NFC East title. So I wonder if maybe Tony Romo's mind drifted just a bit ... allowing him to plan his blue Gatorade shower of coach Jason Garrett. And I wonder if maybe offensive...

Tonight’s rematch is everything for the Dallas Cowboys

Dallas,TX- Oh Boy, oh boy. Sunday is on the horizon and so is the assumed winner-take-all NFC East Showdown between these two bitter rivals. Say what you may about the 1970′s Redskins, but for us youngsters, the Eagles are the most despised of adversaries we’ve had since the 1990′s. This game however means a lot more than just a division championship. Make no mistake, nothing...

Jerry Jones: We may not have played with passion you'd expect

Having had a night to mull it over, Cowboys owner/general manager Jerry Jones summed up his team's 33-10 loss to Philadelphia frankly. "We had a bad day, and there's a lot of specific reasons for having that bad day," he said in a radio interview with 105.3 FM The Fan. The Cowboys turned the ball over three times, they mustered a mere 267 yards of offense and they allowed the Eagles...

After Monday night’s loss, I posed this question to Dallas Cowboys fans; which Dallas player had a good game or played better than you thought they would? And there were a few correct answers. Henry Melton, J.J. Wilcox, Jeremy Mincey, etc . But for the most part, this was a team loss. Dropped passes, fumbles, penalties, missed tackles. You name it, Dallas did it.

Cowboys All Business in 31-21 Victory Over Giants

As I reflect on this game as a whole, I keep coming back to the feeling that these 2014 Dallas Cowboys are all business, and they showed up today with that same focus. There were times where they looked to get a little rattled, but they did not fold. That has been the biggest factor for the Cowboys success this season – not folding under pressure. The Cowboys are now 6-1 and 1...
