Been a Dallas Cowboys fan ever since I can remember. Not a Dallas or Texas native, nor have I ever lived anywhere near Dallas. Nevertheless, I am one of the most passionate fans about the Cowboys that you will find. I am a fan only of the Dallas Cowboys, however there are other teams I have some respect for (but that can change from season to season easily). I don't know as much about them as other might, as I've only been around since the mid 80s.

Cowboys No Longer Sold on Demarco Murray as Franchise Back

3

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports that the Cowboys are "no longer sold on Murray as the franchise running back". They say to keep an eye out as we near the league trade deadline as the Cowboys have had serious internal discussions about the position and are looking to upgrade the position "possibly in a big way". I seriously have doubts that we will see any activity before the deadline as they have reported the possibility of. Who in the world would you trade for? There are very few guys that I think teams would be willing to trade that I would actually be excited about getting. Actually maybe only one and that is Trent Richardson, but he has already been in trade news this year, and hasn't done much since said trade either, so there is that. One might suggest Marcus Lattimore from the Niners, but typically upgrading the position because of injury concerns wouldn't include the acquisition of the player who has sustained the most horrific injury in recent memory at the position, or in all football. I really just don't see it. I say keep your eye on the position in college and look for them to upgrade there.

Mayock Updates Top 5 Rankings

1

The most noticeable change is Houston CB D.J. Hayden being elevated to #1, ahead of Alabama CB Dee Milliner. This possibly puts another corner in the top 17 picks. Other noticeable changes are the rise of Manti Te'o to #1 MLB, Tavon Austin to #1 WR, Eric Reid jumps ahead of Jonathan Cyprien in Safety Rankings and Eric Fisher is now the #1 OT.

49ers were title-ready before Harbaugh

18

For that discussion of Jason Garrett vs. Jim Harbaugh. I have been saying this forever, that the 49ers had a much more solid foundation of players and culture than what Jason Garrett inherited. Garrett has to build a solid roster and change a culture. Mike Nolan and Mike Singletary had already done that for Jim Harbaugh more than 5 years before he got there.

Rob Ryan WILL NOT run the Rams defense in 2013

2

5 minutes are up and only the Eagles and the Saints are still looking for defensive coordinators. Rob runs a 3-4 so either team would have to switch to a 3-4 to accommodate him most likely. The saints were recently a 3-4 team under Williams, but something tells me Sean Payton won't want a guy like Rob on his staff. Eagles will probably be unimpressed with Rob's body of work as well being that they had a pretty easy go at Rob's defense while with the Cowboys all four times.

Cowboys work out 16 players

1

The Dallas Cowboys work out 16 different players at Valley Ranch earlier this week. There were six safeties and three punters. Probably the most notable player was Charlie Peprah, formerly of the Packers. A 7th year veteran from the DFW area and an Alabama Alumni, Peprah has 7 career interceptions. 5 of those came last year when he started 14 games filling in for the injured Nick Collins where he also returned one 74 yards for a TD. Daniel Sepulveda was another notable name as the former punter for the Steelers.

Current List of Defensive Free Agents (Safeties)

7

Nick Collins, Deon Grant, O.J. Atogwe and Brodney Pool headline the free agent safeties that are out there right now. I know Nick Collins was supposed to consult a surgeon about playing football again around the start of the season but I haven't heard word on that. Brodney Pool is probably at least somewhat familiar with our defense having been here for the summer up to training camp and playing with Rob Ryan before. Personally, Grant and Atogwe don't really ring any bells for me right now, but I would love to get Collins if he can pass a physical and what not. I am all about letting Church get his spot back, however, injuries like this take a player out for a season and then the next season they play sub-par. Injuries to the ACL and Achilles tendon will typically take the entire next season to get back to 100%. So we may need to find someone to step in for Church for next season as well. I say call Collins and see what's up but Brodney Pool might be the most likely free agent option, although failing the conditioning test earlier makes me cringe at the thought.

Romo done answering questions about "windows"

6

Romo didn't "storm off" as most media pundits would have you believe by their headlines. However, when asked about Jerry Jones' comments about windows, Romo stands up and puts an end to the interview. They have a video on the site you can watch it yourself. He did it in his normal light hearted manner, but you know that he was disgusted at the notion that the media keeps trying to rekindle that fire.

Redskins release TE Chris Cooley

5

I am actually pretty happy with what we have at TE right now, and Cooley has had some durability issues as of late. But anyone think we could take a chance on him? I think he is known as a better blocker than Phillips or Hanna right now and is also a pretty reliable pass catcher.

Ogletree is now looking more like a wide receiver. Actually he looks more like a football player period. I made fun of his "Prince" look last season but apparently this new found dedication to football has him changing more than just his attitude. I'm diggin' the locks, and apparently he is the front runner for the #3 WR.

Driver out in Green Bay?

17

I know he is 37, but the only reason I bring this up is as a possibility should they not be happy with anyone currently on the team as the #3 WR. He is a reliable receiver and only caught 37 balls last year, which is about what you would expect from a #3 WR but can also be a starter if needed to step up in case of injuries. He also is familiar with Jimmy Robinson and his coaching style and can probably help coach up the young guys in what would probably be his final year. Jacoby Jones has already signed with the Ravens so he is off the market. There will be other names that will open up before the start of the season, but should the Cowboys not be happy with any of their current guys as the #3 WR, I think Driver deserves a look then, and only then. The Packers would also still have to cut him for that to happen. Thoughts?

NFL.com top 30 for 2013 Draft

3

The 2012 draft season has come and gone. Now we turn to the 2013 season. I don't hold Bucky Brooks in high regards of my trusted scouts, however the top 30 doesn't really change much. Some guys on this list I know I want to watch for are Texas DEs Alex Okafor and Jackson Jeffcoat. Safeties T.J. McDonald of USC and Ray-Ray Armstrong of Miami (Fla.) also deserve some attention. And for those of you still clamoring for a true NT, keep an eye out for Star Lotulelei of Utah. I think the 6' 4" 325 lbs. prospect should continue to turn heads.

I was sad that they didn't air Game Changers on NFL Network this year like they did last year.
