Tag: 2016 Week 17

Every week we've be looking at the Cowboys drafted rookies from 2016 and seeing what impact, if any, they had on the previous game. Here's a summary of the performances and statuses from all nine of the Cowboys drafted rookies after the Week 17 finale against the Philadelphia Eagles: Ezekiel Elliott,...
The final two regular season games for the Dallas Cowboys were "meaningless." Going into their week 16 Monday night game against the Detroit Lions, Dallas had already wrapped up both the NFC East and the number one seed in the NFC. Though they went full-throttle against a playoff-caliber opponent that...
The Dallas Cowboys unfortunately were not able to close out the 2016 season on a high note yesterday with a 27-13 loss to the divisional rival Philadelphia Eagles. It wasn't a real big surprise that the Cowboys lost this game, but I think if they would have played to win,...
When the clock struck midnight last Saturday we all celebrated what we hope to be a prosperous New Year in 2017. While the Dallas Cowboys are still looking to use the first month and change to cap off a project they began way back in 2016, some details concerning next...
We might have seen the last drive that Tony Romo will orchestrate as the quarterback of the Dallas Cowboys - and wow was it as smooth as ever. Stepping onto the field for a regular season game for the first time since Thanksgiving of 2015, Romo led a six...
Like some mythical creature, Tony Romo appeared briefly in the 2nd Quarter and left with a flash of light. For some, it was all they really needed from today's game. The Cowboys, who played shorthanded all day and switched to mostly backups after Romo's appearance, ended up losing their regular...
On Friday, fellow ITS writer Kevin Brady opined that playing Tony Romo in today's "meaningless" game in Philadelphia would be a mistake. While I appreciate his logic and reasoning, I am on the other side of this issue. I think there is plenty to be gained by Romo playing...
With everything locked up for the postseason and nothing to play for today, the Dallas Cowboys will be resting many starters. Some will start the game and leave early while others won't be playing at all. Here is the final injury report from each team based on their Friday practices. ...
Listen to an audio version of this article on Bumpers! https://bumpers.fm/e/b1jukepp5geg02v6aps0 I like to think that everyone else is like me in that we all have seasonal things in life. By that I mean there are certain movies I like to watch, songs that I enjoy listening to, and things that I...
For the last several weeks I've been giving you a rundown of all the NFC playoff-relevant games and how they could alter the seeding. This week was no different as there is plenty still undecided in the conference. Only two things are certain right now; the Dallas Cowboys are the...
The Dallas Cowboys have just one more "meaningless" regular season game remaining before they focus on the playoffs. With the NFC East, home-field advantage, and the NFC's #1 overall seed already locked up, there's no surprise that the Cowboys may not look the part of a Super Bowl contender...
There's a whole lot of discussion circulating the confines of Cowboys Nation about how much a certain back-up player for America's Team should play this Sunday in a - for all intents and purposes - meaningless game in Philadelphia. The discussion you and I are about to have isn't about Tony...
Let's flashback for a moment. The date is August 19th, 2016 and the Dallas Cowboys are about to play their preseason home opener against the Miami Dolphins. Tony Romo is the starting quarterback and he is playing in his first live game action since Thanksgiving Day of 2015. In just two...
Welcome to this week's edition of Martin's 5! The Dallas Cowboys really have absolutely nothing to play for this week against the  Philadelphia Eagles, so the most important thing to them should be protecting their players from suffering any kind of injuries that would put them in jeopardy of being...
The Cowboys became the NFC East Champions and the top seed in the playoffs last week when the Giants lost to the Eagles. Despite this, they still played to win last Monday night against Detroit. Ironically, beating the Lions was a huge help to Dallas' greatest rival. If the Lions...
Projecting the strength of a team's upcoming schedule sometimes seems like a fool's errand. Last June I'm sure many teams weren't looking forward to their date with the Dallas Cowboys, coming off a 12-4 season and NFC East Championship. However, once the guy under center went from Tony Romo to the Weeden-Cassel-Moore Poo-Poo Platter, those concerns were alleviated. At this time of year we can only look at what we have on paper. Injuries will happen that change the dynamics of these games.
