Cowboys’ week one camp stories

A full week into training camp and there is certainly isn’t a lack of stories to cover. In this week’s edition of the top five we take a look at the top story lines so far in training camp. 1. Tony Romo’s off days A complete non-issue but can’t seem to get enough play in the media. I like the idea of Romo getting plenty of days off. His back needs to be fresh at the start...

Injuries play a role every NFL season whether you like it or not, but the Dallas Cowboys’ defense is getting bit hard this year. Already missing inside linebacker Sean Lee for the season, the Cowboys had three defensive players go down with injuries at practice on Sunday.

Roster projections: Defensive Backs in Dallas have much to prove

With just one more week until training camp, many Dallas Cowboys fans are coming at the bit for anything new to read surrounding their team.  This week’s positional depth chart series continues with the defensive backs.

It’s Make or Break for Cowboys 2012 Draft Class

It’s time. The Cowboys 2012 draft class is now in season three and we should see which of these players are the real deal and which are not. Bill Parcells would often say it was year three in which you know whether or not you have something with a player, a confirmation either way, good or bad. So which of these players will make that confirmation, and have staying power with the...

DAL Defense has Breakout Candidates despite Injury Bug

With the absence of Lee to what was an already porous defense, it’s not easy to keep a fresh sense of optimism about the Cowboys’ chances of stopping offenses; some people are already declaring the entire season a wash after the team lost their “quarterback” of the defense.If there were a silver lining for the Cowboys, it resides in the fact that calendar only reads May....

Five Cowboys’ who need to put-up or shut-up

Last week in my first installment, we looked at the potential Cowboys that were looking to leave their proverbial footprint on the NFL. It’s always difficult to comprise accurate lists in these categories as it’s simply way to early for any projections. Nonetheless, we as writers have the obligation to give our opinions and quite frankly we love to give opinions, but what is...

Will the battle at safety become a lot more interesting?

The Dallas Cowboys have been trying to find a replacement for Darren Woodson since his departure back in 2004, but have they really been trying that hard? Woodson was taken as the 2nd round pick for Dallas in the 1992 NFL Draft, but since his departure it has been quite the revolving door around Valley Ranch. Ken Hamlin, Roy Williams and others have all tried to emulate the future...

Dallas Cowboys: All set at safety?

Matt Johnson with Eastern Washington Despite the feeling in some mock drafts that the Dallas Cowboys would address their free safety position in the first round, the draft came and went last weekend with no serious additions at the spot. Not until the seventh round and the 248th pick did Dallas draft a safety at all, strong safety Ahmad Dixon out of Baylor, to back up Barry Church...

Dallas Cowboys ‘comfortable’ with the players they have at safety

It was difficult to find an NFL Draft analyst who didn’t have safety ranked among the Dallas Cowboys’ biggest needs heading into this weekend.

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.

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...
