COWBOYS OFFSEASON INJURY UPDATE: Top Injuries to Watch coming into the Dallas Cowboys 2014-2015 NFL season

IRVING, Texas – It’d almost be easier to list the players who stayed healthy than the ones who got hurt during the Dallas Cowboys 2013-2014 season. The whole laundry list of injuries from last year is too great for only a top 10 list, so let’s narrow it down to the Top-10 Injuries to Watch list. Players who didn’t make the list but should be noted are Matt Johnson (ankle...

Safety is not priority number one in this Draft.

Four Tuesdays ago I wrote this article , where I articulated my reasons why the Dallas Cowboys and newly promoted defensive coordinator Rod Marinelli should make fixing the defensive line the top priority in the 2014 draft. I am still convinced that following the old 90’s Cowboys Super Bowl team’s blueprints of a solid 8-9 man defensive front rotation is the key to getting the...

Cowboys put S Matt Johnson on IR, cut roster to 53

The Dallas Cowboys have placed safety Matt Johnson on season-ending injured reserve, deciding to keep their oft-injured fourth-round pick from last year. Johnson was spared being cut as the Cowboys reduced their roster to 53 players Saturday. He has a left foot injury after spending all of last season on IR. Quarterback Alex Tanney and rookie free-agent linebacker Brandon Magee...

JJ Wilcox play puts former draft pick Matt Johnson on the bubble in Dallas

I remember when the Dallas Cowboys drafted the play maker Matt Johnson from Eastern Washington in the forth round of the 2012 draft, and I just shook my head. I didn’t even have Johnson graded as a draft pick in 2012. I scouted small school football for years and while Johnson’s play making ability was […]

Cowboys 2012 Draft Class already a Bust?

With the Cowboys dress rehearsal game this Saturday against the Bengals, its time for players to really shine and earn their stars for the 2013 season. This year’s rookie class is shaping up to be one of the Cowboys better draft classes under Garrett. We’ve already seen center Travis Frederick take a stranglehold on his spot, and he’s only going to improve and lead this offensive...

Morning After: Developments on the Offensive Line in Canton

I am always up for over-analyzing something that might not require over-analyzing, but I will attempt to slow my roll given that it is a preseason game that preceded all other preseason games by a full week. In other words, it is really early, folks. However, entering training camp, there are two departments on this team that needed to prove that they were better than they have...

Training Camp Profiles: Matt Johnson

  As training camp is just getting started, I would like to do a quick synopsis of the Dallas Cowboys 4th round draft pick from a year ago, Matt Johnson. Johnson was drafted out of Eastern Washington and at the time, the coaching staff thought that he could have some impact in the secondary. Well unfortunately the injury bug that ravaged the roster got ahold of Johnson and he missed...

Can J.J. Wilcox beat out former draft pick Matt Johnson for the Cowboys starting safety spot?

It seemed likely that the Dallas Cowboys would add a safety at some point during this year’s draft and they did just that Friday by selecting J.J. Wilcox out of Georgia Southern with the 80th overall pick. Wilcox was the Cowboys’ fourth pick in the first three rounds and the first defensive player the franchise selected. After playing on the offensive side of the ball during...

Matt Johnson, Caleb McSurdy expected to be ready for Cowboys training camp

According to ESPNDallas.com, Cowboys safety Matt Johnson is expected to be ready for training camp after dealing with a hamstring injury. The safety didn’t play a down in 2012 because of hamstring and back issues. The brief moments he did practice showed the Cowboys coaches he had the ability to make plays in the secondary. Johnson stayed in the Dallas area in the offseason to...

Dallas Cowboys Position Outlook: Safety

Barry Church-Courtesy of ESPN Perhaps the biggest question marks exist entering the 2013 season for the Dallas Cowboys at the safety position. This position was a huge weakness in 2012, and still remains an immediate weakness for the Cowboys. With the switch to Monte Kiffin’s Cover 2, corners Brandon Carr and Morris Claiborne will be relied upon to play much more man-coverage,...

Johnson ready to repay faith Cowboys had in 2012

IRVING, Texas -- Matt Johnson is a very happy man these days. And considering what the young safety has been through over the course of the past year, it's hard to blame him for savoring the little things like being able to practice and being around his teammates for the first time in over a year. Johnson is of course the fourth-round pick in the 2012 draft who came to the Dallas...

Cowboys safety Barry Church will miss the remainder of the season after suffering a ruptured Achilles tendon against Tampa Bay on Sunday. With veteran sidekick Gerald Sensabaugh (calf) and Matt Johnson (hamstring) also out against the Bucs, Mana Silva was thrust into significant playing time. It's a big setback for Church, an undrafted rookie in 2010 who finally earned the...

Players are not buying into Garrett System. Cowboys Stink.

The Cowboys won, but it feels like a loss. The defense played good today, but here we go again with the penalties and poor execution on offense. Through 3-weeks this team looks like a carbon copy of the 2011 team, and that means 8-8 again, no playoffs. Let’s be honest about the Cowboys, we stink, we are a bad team and inconsistent. If we’re going to be the Jekyll and Hyde team...

NFC East draft grades

They say grading a draft only days after its completion is fruitless and absurd. But we do it anyway, mainly because there's a demand for the analysis, but also because I believe there's a way to evaluate a draft based on needs addressed and related circumstances that have little to do with the unpredictable futures of the players selected. These grades will likely change...

CB Morris Claiborne A-I don’t normally like when teams with a lot of needs trade up, but the Cowboys traded up 8 spots into the top 6 in a year where the consensus was there were 6 elite prospects and they did it inexpensively, only giving up a 2nd round pick.
