Looking at a Possible Bernadeau-Jenkins Swap

This is one of the worst times in the NFL season. League activity takes place virtually year round, but from about mid-June to late July, the league seems to be at almost a standstill. This time of year is what I like to refer to as “Speculation Season”. Media outlets don’t have much to talk about during this time, so they are digging deep to find any sort of story. That...

Which Cowboys Could Lose Their Starting Jobs in 2014?

Now that free agency and the draft are complete, we are slowly getting a better grasp of what this team will look like in 2014. The biggest need heading into this offseason was the defense and depth across the board. The Cowboys have been very calculating in every decision; from releasing DeMarcus Ware; letting Jason Hatcher walk; to going heavy on defense in the draft. So now, its...

Dallas Cowboys: 2013 Week 2 NFL Power Rankings (#7)

After forcing just 16 takeaways last season, the Cowboys forced 6 against the Giants week 1. They won’t do that every week, but it’s just another sign that takeaways are very inconsistent on a year to year basis. They’re also very inconsistent on a week-to-week basis unfortunately for the Cowboys as teams who win the turnover battle by 5 have a turnover margin of -0.4 the following...

Cowboys offense evolves from idealistic to realistic

If you can read anything from the preseason (and we all know it is dangerous to think you can), then you attempt to carefully read the one time in the exhibition season where both teams admit they are running out the starters for an elongated amount of time. And when that "dress rehearsal" week is against a team that has been in the playoffs in 2011 and 2012 and is attempting...

Cowboys' preseason game is more than a mere dress rehearsal

The next-to-last preseason game is traditionally the "dress rehearsal" for an NFL team's starting lineup, but there's more on the line for the Dallas Cowboys on Saturday than merely getting their lines memorized. The Cowboys have some serious work to do if they want to be ready for the season opener. Sept. 8 against the Giants. Last week's preseason loss against...

Dallas Cowboys Training Camp: News And Notes, August 2-9

It's always a busy time when the first preseason games roll around, a chance to pull on the pads, play and hit in real game time situations as opposed to slowing down in training drills.

Cowboys facing glaring holes in offensive line
