Cowboys Will Have Options for New Assistants

The Cowboys’ game has been flexed to Sunday Night (New Yrs Day) and no one is very confident, there’s hope, but there’s more apprehension than anything else. I hope we pull out a win in New York under the lights; however, if we lose, the Cowboys will need to move fast to pick up some quality assistants. Monday has traditionally been the day coaches have been given

Cowboys Continue the Dramatics for the Worst

When the Cowboys lose, they lose in dramatic fashion, and tonight’s game continues with that theme. The Cowboys and all of Cowboys Nation had high expectations, but the Cowboys came out and just started this game out with pure concentrated garbage play. We look like a 6-10 again, and its scary how this team let the wheels fall off so quick in the first half. At the half the

Preparedness and Defense Will Decide Game Against Lions

There’s alot of swagger building on the defensive side of the ball, and to me, the game will be won on defense. Which team will have more success on defense? Rob Ryan has his unit playing lights out, and with alot of confidence; moreover, this is being done with several backups in the secondary. Its clear the players have fully bought into what Coach Garrett is building in

Cowboys Continue Resiliency With 18-16 Victory

The Cowboys seem to keep finding ways to stay in games and win them in thrilling fashion. One thing is clear, these Cowboys don’t fold, those days are over. Under Jason Garrett, the Cowboys have shown some amazing resiliency against all the odds that would make most teams wither. There was plenty of adversity, but the Cowboys stepped toe-to-toe with the Redskins and pulled

Romo Must Notch Decisive Win Against 49ers

Romo’s meltdown last sunday night has dragged on like a bad headcold and hasn’t gone away. The talk all week has centered around Romo’s implosion, and to avoid all doom and gloom scenarios, Romo must defeat the 49ers in a decisive manner. If Romo can play like he did against the Jets (oustide the last 5 mins), then this will be an easy win, and he should light

Cowboys Used Jets Matchup as Measuring Stick

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

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

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

Garrett and coaching staff won’t get paycuts during lockout, for now.

We’re approaching the June 3 ruling which will determine if the lockout is legal, which in-turn will solidify the owner’s stance on the lockout. The lockout could last a long time. Several teams have already been slashing their staffs and asking their coaches to take pay cuts. Greg Bedard (Boston.com) is reporting that seven teams have pledged not to cut coaches salaries
