Will Cowboys Defense Allow More 400 yard passers?

It’t no secret the Cowboys had the worst defense in franchise history last year, and they invested heavily on the defensive side of the ball in hopes to remedy the horrendous stats from last year. Question is, have the Cowboys done enough this offseason to get the defense back on track? With DeMarcus Ware and Jason Hatcher gone, the defense will rely on a nearly completely revamped...

Is Brandon Weeden a Viable #2 QB for the Cowboys?

The Cowboys are headed towards a potential showdown with Kyle Orton. Orton has skipped all the voluntary conditioning programs and OTAs, but we now enter the meat of the next drama in Dallas. June 17th kicks off the mandatory minicamp and if Orton skips out he’ll be fined about $70k for his troubles. The question is, why is Orton not talking to anyone, why is he taking this road...

Cowboys Will Take One of NFL’s Youngest Rosters to Training Camp

The Cowboys will kickoff training camp on July 24, 2014, and they’ll be taking one of the league’s youngest rosters in the process.

What If DeMarcus Ware Was Not Released?

Now that the dust has settled from free agency and the NFL draft, I’m left to wonder what if the Cowboys had not released DeMarcus Ware this year? How would the Cowboys have attacked free agency and the draft? By releasing Ware on March 11, the Cowboys saved about $7million in cap space, which helped them sign Henry Melton, Jeremy Mincey, and Terrell McClain. Prior to the Cowboys...

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...

Cowboys Gain $5 million in Cap Space, Expect Martin and Lawrence signings soon

The Cowboys have gained $5 million in cap relief from the June 1st designation of Miles Austin. The Cowboys now have close to $10 million in total space; however, that money will be delved out to 1st round pick Zack Martin and 2nd rounder DeMarcus Lawrence, along with money to sign other potential free agents and settlement agreements.

Cowboys 2009 Draft Class. Where Are They Now?

Depending on who you ask, but many draft gurus have stated that the 2009 draft class as a whole was one of the weakest in recent years. The coach at the time was Wade Phillips, and this bad class surely didn’t help him add a single playmaker. The Dallas Cowboys know that all too well, as none of the players the Cowboys drafted are on the team, and most are out of football all together...

Cowboys Need Exit Strategy from Sean Lee

As much as I hate to say this, but Sean Lee is a certified injury prone player. He just is, and if you’re hoping he’ll bounce back in 2015, I wouldn’t hold your breath. The Cowboys gave Lee an extension just last year, and they knew they had to put some language in there to protect their investment. Good thing they did, because Sean Lee will never play a full season for Dallas...

Football is now just 99 days away from kickoff, and the Dallas Cowboys offseason is already off to a dismal start, but in the meantime there are a few other sports you can watch to help kill the time.

Sean Lee Injured, Heading to Dr. to Determine Extent

Linebacker Sean Lee was having a good start to OTAs, but then he ran into rookie Zack Martin and needed assistance from the trainers, which helped him to the locker room. Jason Garrett said in the press conference that he injured his left knee, and will be heading to the doctors for a closer look to check the extent of the injury.

Will Jason Witten Catch Tony Gonzalez?

In the world of tight ends, Tony Gonzalez is arguably the best tight end that has ever played the position. The heavily decorated Gonzalez has all the accolades a player could ever want (outside a Super Bowl ring), including the most receptions by a tight end in NFL history. Gonzalez finally called it a career after 17 seasons, racking up 1,325 receptions, and averaging 78 catches...

The Cowboys will field one of the youngest offensive lines in 2014 with the addition of Zack Martin, and as a whole, Jason Garrett has gotten the team younger by several personnel moves since he was named the Head Coach in 2011. After Dave Campo tallied (3) consecutive 5-11 seasons, Jerry Jones hired Bill Parcells in 2003 to turn the team around, and with that I’ll take a look...

UDFA Fullback, J.C. Copeland Wearing #48 Now

What’s in a jersey number? The Cowboys don’t have an official jersey retirement, but some numbers do carry enough prestige and honor to not be handed out to players. I don’t think we’ll ever see another #12, #8, or #22 anytime soon. However, we have seen #88 used several times, which by all accounts has some serious tradition to it. The great Drew Pearson donned the #88 and...

Tony Romo Voted #71 Amongst NFL’s Top 100

Tony Romo has been voted #71 amongst his peers in NFL Network’s Top 100. Romo wasn’t on the list last year, but he’s back this year. Despite the 8-8  season Romo played some of his best football, but 2013 was the same year the defense took a nose dive. If Romo is truly recovered from his second back surgery and if the defense improves, then the Cowboys have a legitimate chance in 2014.
