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
Sounds like the Cowboys aren’t quite ready to say Romo is done for the year. Garrett says Tony Romo is getting treatment and will continue treatment. An official decision for Romo’s status could be determined on Wednesday. This could ultimately be a situation where the Cowboys don’t want to show their hand leading up to the game. The Cowboys will be looking at
What a disastrous ending, and expect Garrett to be back now in 2014. No way Jerry cans him now with out the chance of Romo being the QB. 2014 will be a lame duck year under Garrett… Christmas has been ruined. Kyle Orton will start against the Eagles. Cowboys QB Tony Romo has been ruled out the rest of the season due to his back injury, per league source. — Adam Schefter
