    Ben McAdoo: “Let Me Know” Who’s Playing CB For Dallas Cowboys

    With all of the latest updates in the news, it barely feels like the will take the field – with Elliott – in just three days to kickoff the at home against the New York Giants. Meeting their East rivals in week one for the third consecutive year, these two teams with high hopes will indeed put on a show Sunday night, with fresh faces all over the field. Perhaps most notably, the Cowboys will throw their young into the fire against Ben McAdoo and the Giants' , with the New York HC far from impressed at the turnover Dallas experienced at CB and S.

    It is no secret that the Giants were the lone thorn in the side of the 2016 Cowboys through the regular season, as they won both meetings by a combined four points thanks in large part to a revamped built through .

    The Cowboys chose to revamp their secondary for 2017 through the draft, letting , , , and walk in free agency. pick CB and S will be expected to make immediate impacts in replacing these veteran starters, as second-year CB , FA acquisition , and veteran will attempt to provide stability in transition at the position.

    Regardless the state of the Cowboys' defense, they have done well to contain and the Giants over the past seasons. Two of the Giants' worst three passing performances by total yards gained over the last two seasons have come against the Cowboys .

    Star NY receiver has only reached 100 yards against the Cowboys once in his career, doing so back in 2014. His status for  remains uncertain after he missed yet another practice on Wednesday.

    should be excited about having some real, meaningful football to dig into soon. The prospect of a young defensive backfield that will play with an added emphasis for getting to the football is an exciting one, as everyone from the rookies like Awuzie to “veterans” like should only improve as the season goes on.

    The Giants will be a formidable test as always though, and just as and Ezekiel Elliott forced the world to take notice of them as rookies for a year ago, there are Cowboys defenders looking to do the same come Sunday. They can start by introducing themselves to Ben McAdoo at .

    Ben McAdoo looks like Problem Child all grown up. Where’s the bow-tie?

    nick

    He sure seems pretty cocky for barely beating us both times last year. I mean they beat a pair of rookies on opening night under the bright lights of NFL Sunday night football by 1 point, and those rookies never flinched, If Terrance got out of bounds who knows maybe Bailey nails that FG. I’ll give them credit though I’m not a hater, they swept us. But let’s not forget we swept them atleast 2 years in a row recently. Romo owned them late in his career. We’ll see how it goes Sunday with those 2 who aren’t rookies any more and dak has a full off-season of working with the starters getting all the 1st team reps, which he got none of last year. Hopefully zeke is running very HANGRY from all of this but stays focused and locked in as well. Then you have dez who’s finally %110 healthy and participated in a full off-season for the 1st time in 2 years and ready to regain that 2014 dominance again. And then there is switzer, he might only return punts and kicks and maybe a few plays on offense but hes going to help so much in Special teams alone with field position. We havnt had a return man since harris left and if hes anything like he was in college he could be alot better than harris. I can’t wait to see a package with switzer, beasley, witten, dez, and zeke on the field all at once, especially splitting zeke out wide with them, the giants will ish themselves, it will be raining 1st downs haha. And think about when they throw rico in with that same lineup later in the year, it’s going to be great. I’m not worried about marinnellis defense either I mean it’s coach marinnelli he always has his guys ready play. I’m really only concerned about Nolan Carroll that’s it. Hopefully chido can take that starting spot from him really early and lewis can pass him on the depth chart by midseason because i truly believe hes the weak link and a liability for giving up big plays and that’s what our defense is not supposed to do. We’ll see in a few days but I’m betting by the end of the game big mouth mcadoo will wish he kept his big mouth shut. Zekes going for over 120 yards atleast and 1 TD and I hope awuzie or brown pick off Eli and run and give the ball to mcadoo on there sideline that would be awesome wouldn’t it ?

    Sean Martin

    Nick, thanks so much for reading and taking the time to share some thoughts. These are all spot on, we share the same excitement for some of the same young players heading into Sunday. Especially agree with you on Chido, we’ll see him out there and I’ll be keeping a very close eye.

    Wow. Cowboys fans are always completely out of touch with reality. The Giants have the Best secondary in the NFL Collins, DRC, Jenkins, Eli Apple, etc. The Dallas secondary is a joke. You are starting two rookies, a veteran in Scandrick that is really only a depth player at best. Your best D linemen are suspended for beating their wives or doing drugs (which is a reoccurring problem). What do you have? Yes absolutely the best O line. However let’s go back and remember that Zeke had 140 yards on 44 carries in TWO games against the Giants. We have the same D line minus Hankins, which had a perception of being very good but had a negative grade by PFF for the season. Jay Bromley and 2nd rounder Tomlinson are an upgrade. Snacks, Vernon and JPP are beast. JPP has looked absurd in the preseason now that he is healthy. Middle linebacker Goodson in his second season looks absolutely solid.
    After the oft injured and aging Dez who do you have? An ancient Witten? Compare that with OBJ, Sterling Shepard, Brandon Marshall and Evan Engram…hmmm which corp is better.
    Zeke is good guys but less not forget you have the best line. Remember McFadden ran for a grand one year? If Zeke is so great he should have put up 2500 yards behind that line. I could have put up 750 with that line.
    Dak yeah he was good but your game plan was conservative. He didn’t do anything spectacular. He is a younger Alex Smith. Smart yup, can run yup game manager yup.
    I will still take Eli and his experience. Our line is questionable no doubt but it is improved and you don’t have a good enough D line anyway. So talk crap about the Giants Oline fine but you have jack crap on your entire D. You don’t have the receivers to outscore people.
    I guarantee the Giants Defense will be even better than their top ten finish last year. I guarantee the O line will be better and Paul Perkins is going to run on your horrible D line. I guarantee with or without OBJ we are going to light up your horrible secondary.
    Dallas fans the media helps y’all out every year prior to the season start. Every year I hear about how great y’all will be and how many Super Bowls have you won in the last 20 years? Crickets
    Tamper down your expectations it won’t hurt as bad by mid season.

    nick

    Dez bryant is the best receiver in the league at scoring TDs when healthy, how do you win games ? by scoring points that’s how and he’s back dez is going to torch Jenkins just like he did when he was with the rams, hes going to get the real dez. And if anyone getting old and aging it’s Brandon Marshall. Then we have beasley the 1st down slot machine but wait we got another dude in ryan switzer who is a clone of beasley and already looks un guardable oh and he tied the record for kick/punt returns for TDs in college history good luck with them 2 on the field together.
    And ya witten is a little old but he’s still 1 of the greatest tightend ever if not the best and at 35 still seems to be consistent and on the field requiring alot of attention from opposing defenses especially yours which he usually seems to get the best of, you remember that romo to witten game winning TD with just a few seconds to go just a few years ago, it probably still hurts haha. And Evan Engram he cant block for crap so when hes on the field the whole world’s going to know it’s a pass i mean you guy drafted someone in the 1st round who cant even play every down. Zeke missed a ton of training camp time as a rookie with a ham string injury and had to get his feet wet that’s why that first game he only ran for so little yards. He’s going to run u guys over he is pissed about all of this and he’s going to let it all out on you. If he had 400 carries like Murray in 2014 I guarantee he would have went for 2,000 yards. And our D-line your talking bad about was number 1 against the run last year and we only upgraded that significantly with Taco and Paea and the whole line is healthy not to mention jaylon smith that top 5 talent we stole in 2016 will be there to help shut your running game completely down which you guys don’t have anyway. He’ll be right there alongside arguably the best LB in the league Sean Lee who owns you guys every time. And let’s talk about our secondary. Scandrick is %100 healthy and if you know football then you’d know he’s one of the best slot corners in the entire league and no hes not coming off an ACL injury this year and he’s not dealing with 2 strained hamstrings he’s going to shut shepherd down all by himself. And Anthony Brown that 6th round gem we stole last year was playing like the best corner in the league the last 5 games last year and he looked solid all year as a ROOKIE and he has 4.3 speed perfect to match up with Odell with a little safety help over the top of course because odell is really good and hes all you got . In any other draft chidobe awuzie would have been a first round pick but it was so deep at CB we stole him late in the second and looks like he’s going to be really good. And jourdan lewis the best cover corner in the entire draft last year, ya he slid to us in the 3rd round because he’s a little short and had a DV case going but he decided to take it all the way to trial and he won, so i wouldn’t be surprised if our secondary is better than yours by midseason. And Dak had the best rookie season in NFL history so You can take Eli all you want over Dak that’s ok when hes done in a couple years just know you have to deal with Dak Zeke and that great O-line for the next 10 plus years and there only getting better your not dealing with rookies that you could barely beat last year, the game plan won’t be so “conservative” for you guys this year. Your garbage O-line will be your downfall this year with no time to throw to your “weapons”. And yea the media loves to talk about us we’re America’s team and you hate us cause you ain’t us, probably because we still have more super bowls than you and we havnt won 1 in 20 years.

    PDidIt

    Ah he ain’t writing an article now after breaking down our team so eloquently, that’s why I just watch the game & know you didn’t have a clue, just pure and simple ignorance. That’s OK but I pray you learned NEVER to talk
    this kind of smack and then lose. Everything about what the Giants are going to do. Did you see (#70 for you to figure out who he is) knocked JPP flat on his ass. Blame us winning cause of our OLine, cause poor Eli looked pedestrian and maybe just maybe you aren’t as good and never will be until he has an OLine.

    Jimmy Smith

    So Eli will know the names of the guys he is throwing to?

    Dustin Stone

    Yes of course they are his receivers. You think the Cowboys secondary, which would be 2nd and 3rd string on the Giants is going to come out and beat Shepard, Marshall Engram and maybe OBJ? Don’t think so.

    nick

    Ya there names are Scandrick, Brown, Awuzie, Heath, and Jones HAHA.

    Jimmy Smith

    What was that? I guess you know now.

    Dallasridge

    Who will the giants be playing on their o-line?

    Sean Martin

    Ereck Flowers still starting at LT is all you need to know there haha…thanks for reading!

    Dallasridge

    Oh how I would love to see Manning throw a pic six and after bring the ball back to Macadoo doo….and introduce themselves to him…..

    DevilDog58

    The only thing that ticks me off is since the Giants beat us in the first game at Jerry’s World, it seems like we ALWAYS open the season with them. I definitely think someone at the scheduling office either hates Dallas or loves the Giants. How about letting us play someone like the Browns on opening night?

    Bryson T

    Cowboys and Giants are two of the most successful season opener teams, so it’s good business to pit them together. Being rivals adds to it. I agree, but I also see why it happens.
