After 2 Preseason Games, What We Know

Baltimore Ravens v Dallas Cowboys

That’s a wrap. The Cowboys hosted their first home game of the preseason, and it was an interesting game filled with a few headlines along the way. A few items are pending, but here’s what we know.

— The Cowboys offensive line is coming along, and has a legit chance of controlling some close games with the running game. They wanted to own possession and move the ball, the 1st teamers have done this thus far.

— Joseph Randle vs Ryan Williams may come down to the final preseason game of the year. Randle probably had game one, and Williams turned it up a notch and took this one. 1-1.

— Davon Coleman will make this team. He’s been active and was creating pressure again in this second game.

— B.W. Webb is not good, dare I say Alan Ball was better. Yikes.

— Gavin Escobar has had some nice catches this preseason. He took a hit and favored his right shoulder, didn’t look in pain on the sideline, but we’ll wait for official word.

— Anthony Hitchens had a bit of off game, didn’t have a solid performance.

— DeVonte Holloman had a neck injury in the 4th quarter and there’s speculation is could be a significant injury. Keep an eye on this update.

— The reserves on offensive line were inconsistent with Weeden at QB. Jeremy Parnell is running out of time, but the Cowboys may be stuck unless someone unseats him

— Dustin Vaughn probably won’t get back to us on the practice squad, he’s been pretty good, better then Caleb Hanie.

— Jamar Newsome continues to make plays, and could see same scenario as above.

— Zach Minter was the defensive player of the game. The Cowboys just signed him and he made an immediate impact, albeit against 3rd teamers. Despite that though, Minter did infact make plays. Sacks and forced fumble. I know its absurdly early, but he could be this year’s Will McClay gem.

    I am hoping that eventually Jerry Jones will realize that even though he is rich etc…. he sucks as the general manager and we Cowboy fans can only take so much. When he said that the defense was going to be better simply because they couldn’t be any worse, he should have fired himself on the spot.

    This guy just talks! How can u say webb sucks when he played the best out of the cbs this game. Mitchell was getting tour he’d the whole game. Clearly it was shown that Webb is the better player. He had his WR on lock. What game was u watching? And he played solid in the last game. He allowed 1 catch for 10 yards. And he played the whole game. Clearly u don’t know what u are talking about. Find a new team!

  • You’re entitled to your opinion. I simply don’t’ see the mad coverage skills you do. You want Webb out there against the 49ers? I don’t. Not even in the slot.

  • Derrick L.Owens

    First of all, We should part ways with several suspect players…Anthony Spencer.. Nick Hayden.. Matt Johnson.. Jeff Heath.. Cameron Lawrence and Tyler Clutts… THATS THAT!!! Now, We should keep four running backs, if not, Ryan Williams or Joseph Randle has to go, and keep J.C Copeland… Zack Minter is our Aaron Donald!..and of course Ahmad Dixson is in! We gotta keep Six receivers! Bryant, Williams, Harris, Beasley, Street, and Boyd.. but keep my eye on (WR)Brandon Coleman currently with SF… and (DE) Michael Sam currently with STL…Our offensive line looks great! Tight Ends look real good.. LAST ONE…I would find a way to make sure that Dustin Vaughan makes the 53 man roster because he wont make it to the practice squad.

  • The Dustin Vaughn factor could be interesting. If the Cowboys keep him on the 53, then they could see serious potential in him in the future. I agree, he’ll get snatched up on waivers.
