Cowboys Closer to Rolling Dice with Doug Free

If the season started today, Doug Free would be our starting RT. The Cowboys are supposedly in the market for a new RT; however, they just let Tyson Clabo slip through their fingers. Clabo signed with the Miami Dolphins today, so you can scratch him off the list. The Cowboys still have options with Eric Winston and Winston Justice, but the longer the Cowboys wait the closer they

Practice Squad Takes Shape

With the release of QB Stephen McGee to make room for new center Ryan Cook, the Cowboys 53-man roster is set for now. In addition, the Cowboys announced their practice squad signings and they are: LB Orie Lemon WR Danny Coale (5th round pick) RB Jamize Olawale RB Lance Dunbar DT Robert Callaway DT Ben Bass OG Ronald Leary WR Tim Benford I was really holding my breath on the Danny

Official: Tashard Choice Has Been Released

Its official, the Cowboys have parted ways with Tashard Choice.  Choice was never able to break from behind the running backs stable in Dallas whether it was behind, Felix Jones, Marion Barber or now with DeMarco Murray and Phillip Tanner. The release of Choice now allows the Cowboys to activate rookie. LB Bruce Carter. Soon after news of his release broke, Choice tweeted, “I

53-Man Roster Prediction (FINAL)

Here we go; the fifth and final edition of the roster predictions. Keep in mind that this is a prediction of what the roster will look like Week One, not necessarily what it looks like tomorrow. Sam Young and Jeremy Parnell will both be on the team tomorrow at 4pm EST, but one of them won’t be when we kickoff in New York. QB: Tony Romo, Jon Kitna, Stephen McGee (3) Previous:

53-Man Roster Prediction (v.4)

It’s the second-to-last edition of the nation’s best Cowboys roster prediction.  I was going to do it yesterday but wanted to wait and see what happened with Andre Gurode first. Between that development and the Martellus Bennett injury, there are some new wrinkles to consider. As always, feedback is welcome and encouraged!    QB: Tony Romo, Jon Kitna, Stephen McGee

Last Ride Cowboys

About one month ago we saw veterans Marion Barber, Marc Colombo, Leonard Davis, and Roy Williams leave the team mostly due to their salaries. As this 2011 Preseason nears its end, it’s becoming clear that other veterans are due to suffer the same fate next offseason. Here’s a look at some Cowboys players who are almost certainly on their last ride with the team: Terence Newman

Shayne Graham Signed; Disaster NOT Averted

By yesterday’s signing of veteran kicker Shayne Graham, the Cowboys unofficially announced that they have no confidence in the young prospects currently on staff. It’s one thing to bring in another young guy such as Kai Forbath, but going the veteran route shows a philosophical shift likely brought on by growing concern. There is no position you can take lightly, but considering

53-Man Roster Prediction (v.3)

After the second preseason game against San Diego, here are the updated roster predictions.      QB: Tony Romo, Jon Kitna, Stephen McGee (3) Previous: Romo, Kitna, Mcgee I’m a little surprised by how little work Kitna is getting in the preseason games, but they must feel comfortable with it.   RB: Felix Jones, DeMarco Murray, Lonyae Miller, Phillip Tanner (4) Prev: Jones,

53-Man Roster Prediction (v.2)

I did a 53-man Roster prediction after the draft back in May. This new edition, the first since joining the blog, takes into account all of the Training Camp reports and the first preseason game, which I finally got to watch today. I’ll be doing another one after each preseason game. I’ve decided to include the picks from the May prediction for comparison: QB: Tony

Big Week Ahead

[ UPDATE:  During the writing of this article news broke that Barber, Williams, Davis, and Colombo have all been cut.  Some of the analysis may not reflect these changes. ] Ding, dong… the lockout’s dead.  As NFL business begins this week, our Cowboys are in a dire financial situation thanks to the lowered salary cap.  All but dashed are dreams of signing the likes of Nnamdi Asomugha

Position Breakdown: Defensive Backs

KEY PLAYERS Terence Newman – For my money, Newman is the most underappreciated player on the team.  You can knock him for his lack of interceptions but he usually handles his business and has proven he can take a star receiver out of a game.  Last year he posted his career-best numbers in both tackles and interceptions.  Maybe this will be his last year in Dallas as the financial

Position Breakdown: Linebackers

KEY PLAYERS DeMarcus Ware – He’s a two-time league-leader in sacks and nearly broke Michael Strahan’s record in 2008.  However many talking heads seem perfectly willing to rank guys like James Harrison and even an aging Julius Peppers over Ware.  I know this isn’t the most unbiased forum, but I haven’t seen anyone in the NFL right now who brings the consistency and
