2013 season was a letdown for the Cowboys. There’s not a single fan that would believe otherwise. On a positive note, it could have been worse they could have gone 6-10 like in 2010. Not that I’m saying that 8-8 is acceptable, nor is three consecutive 8-8 seasons. There is light at the end of the tunnel. 2014 is a new year and if any franchise can turn around its luck, it would
I’ll be doing a few 7 Round Mock drafts centralized around the Cowboys’ picks. The Cowboys currently own 8 draft picks. I have to give a shoutout to my fellow friend / blogger DCFanatic for finding this mock simulator. Its pretty nice actually, I recommend checking it out as well. So for my 1st 7-round mock draft 1.0: Let’s talk about my selections. 1st Round
In my last write-up I talked about the need for the Cowboys to look into going defense heavy, in particular at defensive tackle. I got together with Emory Hunt from FootballGameplan.com to bounce some questions off him. If you haven’t had the chance to check out his work, you need to head over to his site and check out his YouTube channel for the latest, he does a great job
With the NFL Scouting Combine just 2 weeks away, its time to ramp up the draft talk and dig deep into draft day scenarios. The Cowboys 2013 draft was heavy on offense early and I expect the defense to get the concentration this year in the same manner. Forget about trading up for the hot name QB, its not going to happen. This team needs defense and they need a lot of it. I believe
If history is any indicator, then expect the Cowboys to be very quiet come the start of free agency. In fact, it could be said the Cowboys have already made their biggest splash by re-signing kicker, Dan Bailey to a 6-year deal. That being said, the Cowboys will rely on the draft more than ever. The consensus about the Cowboys biggest weakness is on defense, mainly the defensive
The 2014 East-West Shrine Game is in the books; and for me, there are three players that stood out and will be on the Cowboys radar during this year’s draft process. Let’s start with the name that is steadily gaining more and more coverage: Jimmy Garoppolo (6-3, 222lbs) QB, Eastern Illinois Garoppolo had a solid game and the Romo comparisons are gaining more media attention.
Dallas Cowboys news has been a bit slow since we departed the 2013 season; but, word is coming out that Will McClay will be infusing his pro personnel scouting magic into this year’s draft board. McClay has been instrumental in finding some nice gems over the past few seasons. On top of finding Laurent Robinson a few seasons ago, he hit on George Selvie and Nick Hayden has
With the Cowboys season over, its time to focus on the off season, and it all begins with the College Football “All-star” games: The East-West Shrine Game and The Senior Bowl. Here’s your quick guide for key dates for the 2014 NFL season: Jan. 18: East-West Shrine Game 4Pm EST (NFL Network) Jan. 19: AFC and NFC Championship Games Jan. 25: Senior Bowl 4PM EST (Gus
This time it looks like ESPN got their story confirmed by the source for once. Leslie Frazier texted ESPN’s Adam Schefter indicating he is going to Tampa. RT @JosinaAnderson: Filed to ESPN: Leslie Frazier just text me “going to Tampa.” Frazier will be next defensive coordinator for the Bucs. — Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) January 4, 2014 The thinking is that
The Cowboys remain tight lipped about the statuses of various assistants, but the one everyone is curious about is the future at the defensive coordinator position. At the end of the season it looked like a lock that Monte Kiffin would be among the coaches fired on “black monday;” however, that has not happened…yet. The latest rumor is that Bucs newly minted head
The Cowboys offseason is currently underway, and with Jerry reaffirming that Jason Garrett would be back, the talk moves to the defense. Monte Kiffin needs to be released, but the Cowboys are working out the details for a press conference. Don’t be surprised if Jerry comes out and announces an extension for Jason Garrett, and Rod Marinelli as the new defensive coordinator.
It’s been a high drama packed few days, and Tony Romo’s back injury is the latest twist in what should be a wild finish Sunday night. Leading up to last week’s game, rumors were swirling that the assistant coaches were fearful of getting fired and that Jason Garrett would be fired if the Cowboys failed to reach the playoffs for a third straight year. Garrett has
