It's now the morning after the Dallas Cowboys season ending loss, and no, it doesn't feel any better. But a season ending loss, even one as heartbreaking as this was, doesn't excuse everyone from being called out for their ridiculous hot-takery. We aren't even 24 hours removed from the end...
As I sit here just minutes removed from arguably the most devastating loss in this franchise's history, it's hard to put the raw emotions aside and look at the bigger picture. I don't have to tell you what happened tonight, if you're reading this you know all too well...
If the Cowboys are going to finish off their 2016 season in Houston for Super Bowl LI, they will have to get past Aaron Rodgers and the Packers' passing attack today to earn a date with Matt Ryan and the high-flying Falcons, all just to represent the NFC in...
In a move that has been anticipated throughout the week, the Packers' Jordy Nelson has been officially ruled out of Sunday's Divisional Round playoff game against the Dallas Cowboys. Nelson, Green Bay's leading receiver in 2016, suffered fractured ribs last week in the Packers' win over the New York...
What if the defensive ends on the Dallas Cowboys are actually...wait for it...good? Sure, this team's pass rush as a whole isn't dominant, with defensive end being a position Cowboys Nation expects to see addressed in the offseason, but things could have been a lot worse this season when...
All the talk leading up to Sunday's Divisional playoff game against the Green Bay Packers has centered around if and how the Cowboys can stop Aaron Rodgers. Everyone seems convinced that the Cowboys have no shot at slowing down the NFL's "hottest" offense, despite their stellar record thus far. Lost in all...
The strength of the Dallas Cowboys defensive line is on the interior at defensive tackle. Yesterday, as I broke down the linebackers, I mentioned the "clog and cover" scheme that has been effective to this point for Defensive Coordinator Rod Marinelli - and that it would be particularly important...
No current NFL quarterback has plagued the Dallas Cowboys like Aaron Rodgers. Starting in 2007 when Rodgers saw some of his first real NFL action at Texas Stadium in relief of an injured Brett Favre, he has done damage to the Cowboys defense just about everytime. Back in 2010, Rodgers...
This Monday, I joined SMC Sports Host Sean McChesney on 90.3 WMSC to preview the Dallas Cowboys Divisional Round playoff game against the Green Bay Packers. The Cowboys talk starts about seven minutes in, as we first had to address the Giants embarrassing loss to the Packers in the...
The Dallas Cowboys season has been an incredible journey. From owning the fourth overall pick just months ago, to sitting atop the NFC with a 13-3 record and a home playoff game ahead of them, absolutely no one could have seen this coming. Despite no one knowing what was coming,...
If you're sick of hearing about how the Cowboys season is destined to end at the hands of Aaron Rodgers this Sunday in the Divisional Round, you have come to the right place. This is Playoff Primer, and after spending the bye week breaking down the offense, we will shift...
I hope everyone enjoyed Wild Card Weekend. Let's try this again! I hope everyone is ready for some Dallas Cowboys playoff football! This weekend of games was supposed to partially fill our appetite for the Divisional Round, but most of the games were lackluster. With that said, once I knew that the...
We've looked at every position across the board for the Cowboys' loaded offense in this Playoff Primer series so far, and now it is time to talk about the most important position - the quarterbacks. The story of the Cowboys' quarterbacks in 2016 has been unprecedented, as Dallas will remarkably...
Jason Witten is set to become the all-time leader for receiving yards in Dallas Cowboys history this postseason, which is a remarkable honor for the future Hall of Fame tight end. The depth behind him though is relatively nonexistent, as the Cowboys will enter the playoffs without the services of...
Lost in the midst of eleven game winning streaks and number one seeds was the absence of the person who may be the Cowboys best defensive back. Morris Claiborne, the fifth year corner out of LSU, tore a piece of bone off his pelvis on October 30th, and has...
The Dallas Cowboys finished the regular season with the best record in the NFC, which means they get home field advantage throughout the NFC playoffs, and also get a bye week this weekend. One of the benefits of having the bye week during the playoffs is the fact that...
While it is accurate to say that the Dallas Cowboys offensive line is the best in football from Tyron Smith down to Doug Free, the true greatness of these Space Cowboys is found at guard and center. As I continue my Playoff Primer series, we'll wrap up the offensive line...
The Dallas Cowboys are currently taking their fans on their best ride in many years. At 13-3 and atop the NFC entering the playoffs, dreams of Super Bowls and Dynasties are dancing through the heads of all of Cowboys nation. But as good as Dallas has been this year, they...
Its time for another edition of #PlayoffPrimer, and after looking at the Cowboys running backs and wide receivers, we'll move on to part of the best unit in the National Football League - Dallas' offensive line. Specifically, we'll look at the tackle position, where I already wrote that the Dallas...
Who's excited for some Dallas Cowboys playoff football!? If your answer is no, you came to the wrong place, but seeing as Cowboys Nation is the best fan base in the galaxy we'll assume you are just as hyped as we are. One thing is certain, and its that the...
