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 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

Position Breakdown: Offensive Line

KEY PLAYERS Marc Colombo – He’s the most predictable cut once the lockout ends, and it’s unfortunate as he’s a great locker room presence.  The lack of depth at tackle, especially with the lockout giving coaches less time to work with guys like Sam Young or rookie Tyron Smith, might have helped Colombo stick around if not for the financial issues.  But with Dallas needing

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

Coughlin Hints That Cowboys Will Trade Down

I came across this write up by Matt Mosley, and it provides an intriguing nugget of news in regards to the Cowboys trading down from the #9 pick. Mosley describes a conversation he had with Giants HC Tom Coughlin. But my much-maligned “top 10″ mock draft that was chided by none other than Tom Coughlin took a hit Sunday night based on a conversation with a high-ranking

Marion Goes Barbarian at Hotel?

Looks like Marion Barber has himself some unwanted publicity from TMZ of all places. TMZ is reporting that MB3 was detained by LAPD, but not arrested for “disturbing the peace.” We’re told Barber was detained by police — placed inside of a cop car in front of the hotel and investigated. Barber was neither arrested nor cited. However, we’re told Barber
