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

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

Position Breakdown: Defensive Line

KEY PLAYERS Jay Ratliff – It was a down year for the defense as a whole, but top players like DeMarcus Ware and Terence Newman still had a high level of statistical production.  The same cannot be said for Ratliff, who disappeared both from the box scores and the highlight tapes.  I theorized about Ratliff’s struggles and possible solutions in a previous blog (link), but

NFL Owners Gain Leverage with Appellate Court’s Ruling

The 8th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals has ruled that the lockout will continue until June 3rd, when the next hearing will determine whether or not the NFL Owner’s lockout is legal. By the looks of it, the pattern of rulings lean in favor of the owners for the June 3rd ruling as well. The ruling will be determined by the same three appellate judges who sided with the NFL with

Presumptuous Parting Shots

Before the NFL Draft and especially now in its aftermath, Cowboys fans have been speculating what 2010 players will not be with the team next season.  My CowboysBlog colleague gave his thoughts on Roy Williams’ future in a post yesterday (link).  I actually disagree with Joe and think Roy will still be with us next season, but we’ll get to him later.  For now, here

Roundtable: Scripting the 1st Three Draft Picks

We’re in the heading into the homestretch and the question remains; Who Will the Cowboys draft? Not only do all the fans want to know who we’re drafting, but they absolutely know that the brain trust must hit on their draft picks. To me, the first three picks should be immediate contributors. I got together with my message board moderators and surveyed them on who they

Cowboys to host Will Rackley, OG, Lehigh

The Cowboys continue to explore all options for offensive line help, and they will host another massive guard in Will Rackley, OG, Lehigh. Rackley measures in at 6’3” 309lbs, considered to be a 3rd round grade, Rackley is moving up draft boards and can go earlier by some estimations. The National Football Post is also reporting the same news on Rackley’s visit

Cowboys Draft Q&A With Blogging the Boys

Draft talk is in full swing and heating up as each day passes by. I wanted to get some opinions from a fellow Cowboys blogger about the Cowboys draft, so I set up a Q & A with Blogging The Boys very own, Dave Halprin. Dave’s work at BTB is one of the best out there, so it was great to get with him to set this up for all the Cowboys fans out there. So, here we go: Joe:
