Troy Aikman was drafted 23 years ago, and since 1989, the Dallas Cowboys have not drafted a quarterback in the 1st round. Only the Chiefs and Saints hold a longer streak (28yrs) of not drafting a QB in the 1st round. I bring this up because its been way too long for a franchise to go without pulling the trigger on the most important position on the team. The closest thing the Cowboys
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
Jerry Jones has said that four or five players are in danger of not coming back this upcoming season. So, who’s on that list? Marion Barber and Marc Colombo are the two given, especially after drafting Tyron Smith and DeMarco Murray. Common sense and speculation point to, Terence Newman and Roy Williams being the other two players. Newman’s status will be effected with
The Cowboys continued to be proactive and leapfrog again, and this time they moved to the #55 pick from #59 to draft LB Sean Lee, Penn State. Lee is likely going to be penciled in at ILB, and possible successor to Keith Brooking. Lee was rated the second best ILB and the Cowboys made the move to get their guy. Fans were hoping the Cowboys would have moved up to grab a decent safety,
The search for Terrell Owens production as a #1 WR has been found in Miles Austin. If I’m the Cowboys, I keep going with Austin and don’t look back. Austin is clearly the new #1 WR on this team, he makes plays, and gains huge chunks after the catch, sounds like #81 from last season. Now, that we have found our #1 WR, the search continues for the #2 WR. Let’s get
Looks like the Cowboys have finally opened their eyes and will start Miles Austin as the #2 WR over Patrick Crayton. When I first saw the headline news I thought this was great and I love it, then I read that Crayton is upset. Give me a break, the guy is unreliable, his hands went from the best to questionable, reckless with ball security after the catch, this was a long time coming.
Wow, what a game, what a load of garbage turned in by both sides of the ball too. All kudos for Miles Austin saving the day with his big catches for the win. But one thing remains a constant for this team, and that’s inconsistency everywhere you look. I really wanted the Cowboys to blow out the lowly Chiefs the same way the Giants demolished a similarly crap team in the Raiders;
The Cowboys let the Broncos hang around and win the game, and Wade Phillips’ seat should be warming up. Despite being 2-2, the Cowboys are really playing some very mediocre ball on both sides of the ball. We’re on track for a dreadful 8-8 season if this team doesn’t make some changes. Its the same story different week, shoddy tackling, penalties, poor play calling,
With just three games into the season, the Cowboys have already had the early dramatics, and disappointments. Let’s take a look, in general, at how this team is doing and how we’re going to improve. If we’re being 100% honest about this team, let’s get to the reality of it…this team is average and has not impressed anyone, yet. Romo picked up where
Looks like Isaiah Stanback will be given his walking paper after the game against Minnesota. I’m being told that the Cowboys really like undrafted rookie free agent, Kevin Olgetree. In addition to this, Ogletree seems to be further along than where Hurd and Austin were their rookie years. Look for Olgetree to be the #5 receiver and look for him to jump up the roster if he
What’s up everyone, sorry for the hiatus, I’ve been extremely busy at work and outside of work; but, I have been reading the latest news on the Cowboys. The hot topic at the moment and probably through training camp will be the fragility at the wide receiver position. I’m reading the mini camp reports and saw nothing but receivers dinged up and not practicing.
NFL fans have hit the lull that occurs after the NFL Draft and before training camp. Teams news in slowly trickling out to fans, but I have noticed something interesting over at the Official Cowboys site in regards to the depth chart. If you visit it right now, the depth chart is simply in alphabetical order. Could this be an indirect sign to ALL players that every roster spot is
