It is Friday, the Dallas Cowboys are playing football this weekend, and every weekend for the foreseeable future, and you are just here to take in some tweets from the vast world of Cowboys Nation and get fired up for game day. However, a celebratory Tweet Break will have to...
Who could have possibly guessed that the Dallas Cowboys would be hit by the dreaded injury bug in back to back seasons? America's Team has a winning record of 2-1 so far, despite the injuries to key players on both sides of the ball. Tony Romo (back), Tyron Smith (stinger/back), Orlando...
The Dallas Cowboys are just two games into their 2016 season and unfortunately there are several players not living up to the teams, fans, or even their own expectations. It's sad I know, but unfortunately factual. This is especially true for arguably the Cowboys best cornerback, Orlando Scandrick. If you are...
Dak Prescott and Tony Romo... these guys are taking over the news cycles lately. I thought about that, but I just don't see anyone saying the things I'm thinking. The so-called quarterback controversy in Dallas; the situation is nowhere near as convoluted as some would have you believe. Dak Prescott said...
The Dallas Cowboys have to be thinking that they are cursed when it comes to keeping their quarterbacks healthy. First, it was Kellen Moore who was injured in practice, then last week Tony Romo goes down and is out for an unknown amount of time with a broken vertebrae...
We all know by now that Tony Romo suffered a lower back fracture in Thursday night's game against the Seattle Seahawks. We also know that he won't be the Cowboys starting quarterback to begin the 2016 season. What remains unknown is exactly how long Romo will be out. I've heard a timetable...
It's been a rough weekend, Cowboys Nation. By now you're well-aware of the tough cookies dealt to the 2016 Dallas Cowboys, 15 days before the season even begins. Tony Romo has a broken bone in his back, and we all have frowns on our faces. https://twitter.com/rjochoa/status/769659201236799488 I hit on this topic on...
It's the news none of us wanted to hear. Tony Romo has a broken L1 vertebrae in his back. it's the result of a hit he sustained on the third offensive play against the Seahawks on Thursday. Early indications are Tony Romo could miss 6-10 weeks. According to ESPN, during a...
Here's a quick look at the players who have been confirmed out for for tonight's game or whose status is in question against the Seattle Seahawks: OUT: Dez Bryant, WR - Concussion Tyrone Crawford, DT - Concussion Shaneil Jenkins, DT/DE - Hamstring & Knee Andrew Gachkar, LB - Thumb Mark Nzeocha, LB - Achilles Kellen Moore,...
It seems like we just can't have nice things, Cowboys Nation. https://twitter.com/drewdavison/status/768074748639059968 I know your head is spinning, so let me try to explain. Arguably the biggest playmakers on each side of the ball for the Cowboys will be absent for the preseason's most watchable important game on Thursday night, at the...
For the first time ever last Saturday night, I was genuinely satisfied watching a Dallas Cowboys preseason game. I couldn't help but dream that just maybe Dak Prescott is the future... If nothing else, maybe he can at least be a backup that can win some games if called upon. 10-of-12 for 139...
The Dallas Cowboys depth at the tight end position may have just taken a hit for the start of the season and possibly longer depending on the severity of James Hanna's knee injury. On July 29, Hanna complained of knee soreness in his pre-training camp physical and the soreness was...
1-11 In case it didn't click right away in your head, this above figure is the record of the Dallas Cowboys last year without their starting QB. It is a lonely figure, and quite frankly an embarrassing one for any team, but especially unacceptable for a group that won twelve games...
Training camp has really been tough for the Dallas Cowboys over the past several years. Season-ending injuries have been a reoccurring theme, and unfortunately this year is no exception. For those of you that were really looking forward to seeing Kellen Moore finally get his chance to prove his naysayers...
Training Camp hasn't quite started for for most NFL teams, but that doesn't mean they're immune from injury news. For Washington, it's a pain they know all too well. Outside linebacker Junior Galette, who signed with the team last year only to suffer a season-ending left Achilles tear in August, now...
Typically, any NFL related news this time of year is of the negative nature and yesterday certainly didn't disappoint. Sadly, I woke to the news that former Vikings and Cardinals head coach Dennis Green passed away at the age of 67. Green may never be remembered as one of the...
On November 1st, 2015, Seattle Seahawks receiver Ricardo Lockette suffered a career-ending injury in Dallas. A big hit from Cowboys safety Jeff Heath led to severe neck damage. Yesterday, Lockette wrote a fabulous piece in The Players' Tribune about the injury and his subsequent retirement. Every football fan should take a moment...
The Dallas Cowboys provided a jaw-dropping moment in the second round of the 2016 NFL Draft, when they decided to write linebacker Jaylon Smith's name down on their draft card. Why in the world would they draft a linebacker so highly when there's a chance he may have to sit out the entire 2016 season? Well, Smith's selection is based more on his future potential and that he can fully recover from a devastating knee injury that also caused nerve damage. If he can fully recover and become the player he was at Notre Dame, then the Cowboys would've drafted a player that is arguably the best defensive player in the entire 2016 NFL Draft. Can you say draft day steal?
A few weeks ago, I explored how the Dallas Cowboys' defensive line could still create pressure and wreak havoc even without the presence of a big time pass-rushing end. My plan focused on the interior of the defensive line shrinking the pocket and getting into the face of the quarterback. This would eliminate any chance of stepping up in the pocket, and would force either a quick throw or a failed escape attempt. Maliek Collins, Cedric Thornton, Tyrone Crawford, and Terrell McClain would be featured in a fearsome interior rotation that would bring hope to an otherwise questionable defensive line. It all seemed so perfect.
Rookie defensive tackle Maliek Collins has broken his right foot during Organized Team Activities and could miss up to 3 months. Collins, taken in the third round of last April's draft, was expected to be an immediate contributor on the defensive line. He was considered an instant scheme fit and could have even been a Week One starter if Tyrone Crawford is asked to play defensive end. Now he will likely miss all of training camp and perhaps the entire preseason. Collins' absence will give veterans Terrell McClain, Jack Crawford, and David Irving better opportunity to cement a role in the defensive line rotation.
