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...

A Cowboys key to victory against mismatch Eagles

Dallas, TX- Sometimes in order to beat a major adversary, you must get creative. When facing an opponent that beat you badly and exposed your flaws, the task becomes even more difficult than imaginable. The Cowboys now have the tall task of facing the Philadelphia Eagles, on the road, with all the pressure on them. Philly was defeated convincingly by the defending champs, setting...

Cowboys Season Gets Cloudy After Loss to Eagles

I usually write up my post game thoughts after the game, but I needed a day to decompress from such a lousy performance. The Cowboys we saw before the bye week were no were to be found, and things are getting cloudy now. If the playoffs started today, we would be on the out looking in yet again. At 8-4, the Cowboys are still in the hunt, but with performance like they have had the...

Film Room: Poor pass protection is the reason the Dallas Cowboys lost

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. But the most frustrating...

Jerry Jones Impressed by Cowboys Defense

If you have yet to realize that Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones is potentially missing the “in touch with reality” button in his brain, his latest comments may very well convince you.  Following the Cowboys disappointing 0-4 preseason in which they yielded an average of 29 points and 393 yards per game, Jones had this to say about the defense (via Star-Telegram).

Dez Bryant Throws Punches At J.J. Wilcox In Training Camp Fight (Video)

Dez Bryant is one of the best wide receivers in the NFL, but he’s also known for being a bit too “emotional” at times. Combine that with the frequency of fights during NFL training camp, and Sunday’s incident should be of little surprise. During the Dallas Cowboys’ Blue-White team scrimmage, defensive back J.J. Wilcox finished a hit on Bryant with a little extra authority...

Two Dallas Cowboys get into brawl during Sunday scrimmage

One critcism of the Dallas Cowboys in recent years has been that the team lacks mental toughness; they have all the talent in the world, but when they get hit they fold rather than fight back. If Sunday’s scrimmage is any indication that may be changing. After safety J.J. Wilcox collided with wide receiver Dez Bryant at full speed the two got into a heated exchange. Nick Eatman...

In addition to a slew of passes and touchdowns, Dez Bryant has also caught a lot of heat over the past couple of years for his short temper. That temper was on display once again at Cowboys practice this weekend when safety J.J. Wilcox laid a big hit on Bryant after a catch over the middle.

Dez Bryant Says He Loves J.J. Wilcox’s Aggression After Fight During Practice

Dez Bryant is a fiery competitor, so it should be no surprise that he would welcome that same type of fire from a Cowboys defensive player as well. Cowboys safety J.J.

We all know that Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant is a bit of a fiery individual.
