In light of Jay Ratliff’s untimely release (demise), it had me thinking about how we wasted Ratliff’s talent. Ratliff was a 4-3 DE at Auburn and Bill Parcells drafted him in the 7th round, converted him to NT to replace Jason Ferguson. Yes, Ratliff had a solid couple of years, but imagine how much better he would have been if we had kept Zimmer and kept Ratliff at
The Cowboys fired another assistant coach, and this time its defensive coordinator Rob Ryan. This is a move that I wanted to see happen, and one that needed to happen. Fact is, Ryan talked too much and couldn’t back it up, nor did he he ever elevate the defense to a top flight defense. Its funny to hear that his defense was exotic and aggressive – it was not. How many
The Cowboys are on the road against a solid team, so this game should be interesting. I honestly don’t see the Cowboys winning this game. This year has just be disastrous to say the least, and now the offense is playing better, but the defense has reverted to 2011. The defense will have their hands full, and if we can’t get to Dalton, this will be a long day. I’ve
I think we’ve seen enough over the years to know Jason Garrett is not going to get this team anywhere, and with another blundering loss under his belt the seat should be getting warm for Garrett. The burner is on, inching towards a medium heat this coming Sunday against the Panthers. The Cowboys are last place in the division at 2-3, and the rest of the division is playing
The season came full circle with another disappointing loss to end the Cowboys 2011 campaign. It was Garrett’s first complete year, and 8-8 is the result. Most writers had pegged the Cowboys to finish between 9-7 and 8-8, since it was seen more of a rebuilding year in transition, looks like the pre-season consensus was correct. So, all Cowboys fan’s are still enraged
So, now that most of Cowboys Nation has had a full day to digest the disappointing loss against the Jets we’ll take a look at the good the Cowboys did against the Jets. To be exact, the Cowboys used the game against the Jets as a measuring stick, and we did very well, despite the turnovers. Many of us had great concerns over the defense, since they looked very average during
The NFL continued their series of The Top 100 Players of 2011, as voted exclusively by the players themselves. Tonight 60-51 were revealed, and tonight further solidifies Bill Parcells’ legacy in Dallas. Of all the Cowboys in the list, they were all drafted and/or molded by Parcells. Gurode is the exception, but then again, he was drafted in 2002, the year before Parcells
We have all seen the miraculous turnaround the Cowboys have made under Jason Garrett’s command, and if the team continues on this path, I’d expect Jerry to remove the interim title and make him the new head coach for 2011 and beyond. I don’t think there’s any question, Garrett has changed the culture and its paying off bigtime. Looking ahead, if Garrett becomes
Let’s be realistic here, the Cowboys season was done before it even began, the injury to Romo just solidifies and adds insult to injury to Cowboys Nation. We have the distinct possibility of going 1-15 at the rate we are playing right now; however, I’m thinking more 4-12, still a horrible record considering everyone penciled us in to the Super Bowl – what a joke. The
After the debacle in Philadelphia to end the season Jerry Jones had promised changes that would help the Cowboys focus on a successful 2009 run; however, the question is, have there been enough changes this offseason? We all remember how Jerry answered whether or not the Cowboys would make coaching changes if the Cowboys failed to make the playoffs. “The coaches are in place.
Its been a slow news day for Cowboys Nation, but that doesn’t necessarily mean there’s nothing going on. We are coming up on three weeks until the NFL draft, and the Cowboys are going full speed ahead. The Cowboys will bring in 30 NFL prospects for closer evaluation and private work outs over the next weeks. Among the visiting players will be Texas A&M quarterback
Are you planning on attending any Cowboys games this year and beyond? If so, you should feel safe in the new state-of-the art stadium. According to the Arlington Mayor, Robert Cluck, the new stadium will be pretty safe: “When this stadium opens, it will be the safest public structure anywhere,” Cluck said.(DMN) Jerry Jones gave a tour for two lawmakers; Republican Sen.
