Considering the wide disparity of opponents that ACC teams faced in Week 1 -- Clemson traveled to Georgia, for example, while Pittsburgh hosted (and thoroughly demolished) an FCS team in Delaware -- it's hard to judge which team is better than another. But some teams surprised while some disappointed, and what would we do to pass the team between games if not for power rankings?...

Assessing the Cowboys' Final Roster

Well, running back Ryan Williams didn’t make it. The Dallas Cowboys decided to cut the former Arizona Cardinals running back after he spent training camp and preseason with Dallas. He ran well and ran hard but just didn’t show enough in the end to warrant a roster spot. It was likely his inefficiency on special teams that did him in, but no matter now, he’s no longer on the...

Does Murray’s injury history suggest the Cowboys to keep four backs?

The Dallas Cowboys running back competition has been heating up all preseason. Of course this is a situation any team would like to have, but that doesn’t make the decision any easier.

Preseason Primer: Dallas Cowboys visit Miami Dolphins

It’s preseason week three, which means we only have to sit through one more week before “real” football is upon us. I have actually enjoyed the preseason much more this year, but that’s mainly because we still have no idea what this Dallas Cowboys Defense is going to look like come week one. After the saddening news of DeVonte Holloman’s neck forcing him to retire, the...

Cowboys’ backfield battle between Randle and Williams heating up.

The battle for the number three running back spot in Dallas just got really interesting after last Thursday’s game with the San Diego Chargers. Joseph Randle got the start at running back with the first team offense and he impressed me early. He looked noticeably quicker so far than he did at any point in 2013. Ryan Williams got most of the second half work and to me, he finally...

Offensive scouting report after preseason game one

A lot of people seemed to be shocked by Brandon Weeden so far in the pre-season, but he looks like the same guy I saw on tape in Cleveland. When you give Weeden a nice pocket, he has the arm strength to make every throw on the field. He really struggles when things get muddy around his feet. His touchdown throw to James Hanna was probably the best throw outside of the pocket of his...
