Throwing the Defense under the bus

With all of the discussion around Tony Romo and his clutchness/choking I thought it would be fair to do a similar take on the Defense. How well have they performed in the clutch? You can probably...

The Uncuttables: exactly why Dallas’s cap management is hurting the team

Ever since Garrett came on as head coach he has talked about accountability and creating competition at every spot. These almost seem like blatantly obvious truisms for a successful football team,...

Time for a new generation. Who will be left in 2014?

The last time the Cowboys made the the playoffs was the 2009 season. When training camp starts in 2014, I expect four players to be left from that roster.Here are the players left from 2009 that...

What went wrong in 2013

When I look at the reasons why the Cowboys couldn’t quite make it over the hump for the third year in a row, I see things that I trace back to management and to a lesser degree Garrett. First and...

Can the Dallas Defense Stop the Saints?

I think the most optimistic description of the Cowboy’s defense so far would be "opportunistic". At times, these guys have been actually pretty darn good, but they have also folded so badly for...

Fire Callahan? Not so fast

I don’t want to get too caught up in defending Callahan simply because I do feel like he can do a better job. However, it also seems like much of the discussion is overly simplistic and...

What is the Cowboys Identity?

For starters, these are definitely not the 2009 Dallas Cowboys who were the last ones to taste post-season success. Exactly seven players remain from that team: Tony Romo, Miles Austin, Jason...

Should Terrance Williams start over Miles Austin?

When looking over the rankings posted today, I couldn’t help but wonder if Williams should start over Miles Austin. There has been a lot of talk lately about performance outranking status and...

3-3 does not mean 8-8

I know that even after a victory there are those that are grumbling that the Cowboys are still 3-3, on the road to 8-8 and this is the "same old team". It is possible that this team will wind up...

Why the Dallas Cowboys Ain't Scared

I wrote this because I feel the need to counter the doom and gloom many of us seem to be feeling. Now this analysis isn’t for betting purposes, but for enjoyment only. Fans need to find hope that...

What was Awesome and What To Fix

First off, I enjoyed the win and as a fan I am completely psyched to have a win over a division rival. However, the team will need to clean up some things if they are going to win consistently....

Pencils Down: Last Chance Predictions

It’s down to the wire before the first game of week 1, but here is my assignment on how the Cowboys will do this season. Overall, I consider myself a "cautious optimist", although to some I might...

A sampling of 3rd string QB's for the Tanney discussion

I’ve felt that our discussion around Tanney has largely gone with the assumption that 3rd QB’s have to be exceptional or a significant draft choice to be kept. As far as a management goes around...

The Benching of Murray: Garrett leaves his mark

Good coaching is one of the things that is really hard for a fan to spot. Most of the coaches real work happens before the games behind closed doors. It's a lot easier to credit the player for...

Sharrif Floyd is irrelevant to the Cowboys Draft

I know some fans coveted this guy, and I understand the frustration, but primarily I'm reacting to this meme that it was a choice between Floyd and trading down. I've seen this from fans and...

What if we don't get new long-term contracts for Romo and Spencer?

My feeling is that if the situations with Romo and Spencer could have been resolved easily, they would have been resolved a few days ago. Everyone is playing hardball, and as fans we may need to...

Why the Cowboys will not trade Spencer (or anyone notable)

I had some hopes for Spencer being traded, but I think if it was going to happen it would have happened already. If you just look at the history of the Cowboys under Jerry Jones, it should have...

Demarco Murray speaks about his 48 yd run

14

So he finally speaks and confirms pretty much what I thought. He thought the defense was too far ahead of him to make it to the end zone. And yeah, he might have been a little gassed.

Do you take Cole Beasely to the Game?

I think Beasely is a lock for the 53, but does he make the game day roster? He's my pet cat and I'm rooting for him, but I also want what's best for the Cowboys. I have to say that I like this...

Are the coaches playing mind games with Beasley?

2

He plays with the ones out of the slot and plays well. Yet, he doesn't appear on the receiver depth chart and they won't mention him at all when they ask who's in the competition for the 3rd receiver slot. Maybe they want to keep that chip on his shoulder? Or maybe because he hasn't shown much ST capability he's still not in the mix?

The Cowboys Running Game and its best hope: Bill Callahan

On the surface, the Cowboys have generally had a productive offense under Jason Garrett. 2011 was an off-year for him, but they still placed a respectable 12th in terms of yards. While the season...

I'm getting on the Beasely bandwagon before it's full

SInce I'm not the type of person to research college performance, I've held off on picking a pet cat so far. But the latest practice news has me excited about Beasely. The fact that he continues...

Early review of Dez,er I mean Mo Claiborne in training camp action

Can't believe I'm the first to post this. I can't believe I said Dez when I was thinking about Pick Six. Oh the shame! :0 Too much Dez hype I suppose.

An early naysayer on the Claiborne trade

Not saying I agree, but it's downright prophetic coming out a few hours beforehand when most folks had us sitting tight at #14. Guess he can really say "I told you so" ... or eat some serious crow, lol
