Roster review: Lots of competition ahead

Let's do a review to see how things have changed since last season, what's set, and what's not, where the fiercest competition is likely to be, and what's still left to be done. The roster from...

How have the Cowboys done at filling priorities? What is still needed?

This is my third post on the same subject. Before FA, I wrote a long post on what I saw as the Cowboys' biggest needs. Then, after the pre-draft FA period, I updated it. Here's my latest take...

33 more days until the draft?

This is going to be interminable hashing and rehashing, and re-rehashing the possibilities. Cowboys need to stick to priorities -- offensive and defensive lines for the first two picks. Then look...

Looking for evidence that our offensive line isn't in worse shape today than it was last year.

Does anyone know of any objective analysis that suggests our new guards, Nate Livings and Mackenzy Bernadeau, are likely to be an upgrade over what we got out of Montrae Holland/Derreck Dockery and...

Kamerion Wimbley v. Anthony Spencer -- weigh in with your view

Now that Kamerion Wimbley has been released by the Raiders, he's eligible to be signed, and the Cowboys could then drop the franchise tag on Anthony Spencer. Should they do it? What would Wimbley...

Robbing Peter to pay Paul? Cowboys can't afford to neglect offense to strengthen defense

The Cowboys have done some nice things so far in free agency, but nearly every dollar invested has helped the defense.

Dis on Marty B if you want, but I expect him to produce like Fasano did for the Dolphins

A lot of fans here seem to be chuckling about Marty B's value for the NY Giants. I wouldn't be so quick to judge him a bust. Compare what Tony Fasano did when he was here behind Jason Witten. In...

Owners' penalty against Cowboys and Redskins may not hold up in court

I think the penalty the 28 owners have imposed on the Cowboys and Redskins for structuring contracts in the uncapped year is probably illegal under anti-trust laws. I say this as an experienced...

Cowboys Super Bowl teams have always had multiple Pro Bowl offensive linemen

In my recent post: Have the Cowboys filled their priority needs yet? I try to make it clear how important the offensive line is to the success of the Dallas Cowboys. In response, a commenter said...

Have the Cowboys filled their priority needs yet?

My post below evaluated what I thought should be the Cowboys priorities going into free agency. Here's an update on developments since then. So far, the Cowboys have met some of their needs, but...

Do what Philly did in 2011, only better

Under a post called Priorities, Priorities, Priorities that I put up a few days ago, I laid out an ambitious offseason plan that Dallas could implement. Several people thought I was stretching...

Priorities, priorities, priorities

There is a lot the Cowboys need to do this offseason to be contenders next year. We have holes in the interior of the offensive line, a pass rush that is not good enough to threaten Eli Manning...

Free agent wish list

I believe the Cowboys most need to improve their strength in the trenches if they want to be Super Bowl contenders again. Given the amount of money they have to spend -- upwards of $20 million --...

Win or lose Sunday, what the Boys need to do

Whatever happens Sunday, here's my take on how the Cowboys could improve going forward. 1. Improve the coaching. Norv Turner is almost certain to be on the market, and no team is going to hire...

Waiting for the Cowboys to show some dominance

How long have we been waiting for the Cowboys to show some dominance over a hated opponent? It seems like a long time. There were the back-to-back wins over Philly in 2009, including our first...

Dan Bailey has won 4 games with kicks, not 3

I've seen it repeated here and on ESPN that Bailey has won 3 games with kicks this year. But by my recollection, it's 4 -- SF in overtime (making up for his last miss), both Washington games...

Can the Cowboys go from underachievers to overachievers this year?

I think the "underachiever" label has fit the Cowboys perfectly for many years. Can you think of the last season where our team did better than you expected all the way through? 13-3 was nice, but...

Kickoffs from the 35 -- what does that change?

Now that we've all seen games where teams kick off from the 35 yard line, how do you think that's going to change the game? Here are some initial thoughts.

The NFC Least

Have the Cowboys lucked out this season?  The NFC East has no team that looks ready to run away with things.  Washington just blew a 17-point lead to the Texans at home.   Any number of plays...

A few things that bother me

I don't think the Cowboys have a talent problem.  Yes, we could use some younger, more athletic offensive linemen to join Doug Free.  But was the Bears' oline better than ours?  The Cowboys can win...

Cut Alex Barron tomorrow

Cowboys need a big jolt.  The proper move would be to cut Barron for blowing the block that negated the winning TD.   Instead of elation to get a win we didn't deserve, the Cowboys are looking at a...

Should the Cowboys cut Montrae Holland?

From reading various post-game analyses, you wonder why the Cowboys have stuck with this cast-off for so long.  We paid a 5th rounder for him I think.  Yet he couldn't get acclimated to the...

Roy Williams WR -- the mistake that keeps on giving

After the Cowboys drafted Dez Bryant, the Cowboys should have cut Roy Williams this offseason because it wouldn’t have caused them any cap hit. Now they have compounded the problem by preparing...

Will the offensive line sink the Cowboys in 2010?

I think there is no way to sugarcoat it at this point.  The Cowboys offensive line performance has so far reminded me a lot of the Washington Redskin's O-line woes from last season, when Jason...

Who have the Vikings defeated?

Offense is still leaving points on the field

As fantastic as Sunday's game was, the good news is that Dallas has yet to really reach it's potential.  I'd say the defense is pretty much there with the back-to-back shutouts.  That's due a...

10 Keys to the Eagles game

I think either team could win this game.  It could be a close barnstormer, like last year's opening game in Dallas.  Or it could be a lopsided affair, as it was at the end of last year, or the 2007...

I'd rather we look bad early than look bad late

  We all know the issues the Cowboys need to improve on. 1.  Romo's INTs.  Romo has said he's going to cut down on his turnovers.  And so far, he's at least looking better at handling the ball...

Start Felix Jones

  One thing will be interesting to see this year is how the Cowboys deploy Felix Jones.  Clearly they underutilized him last season, which may have led to his hammy pull (after which he messed up...
