The Dallas Cowboys lost a close and gut-wrenching game against the New York Giants in their season opener at AT&T Stadium. The game wasn’t the most exciting, especially for Cowboys fans, who watched their team only score one touchdown on the day. The Cowboys don’t have many positive takeaways from...
As often happens on a NFL Monday, the big story of Dallas' season-opening loss is the final play. Terrance Williams' game-ending decision not to get out of bounds but instead go for more yardage has been met with with plenty of outrage and bewilderment, but also some mild defense. I thought...
Terrance Williams, known more for the passes he fails to catch, will now be known for the one we wish he hadn't. With 12 seconds left on a potential game-winning drive, Williams caught a crossing-route just past the 50-yard-line and was headed for the sideline. He elected to change direction...

The Dallas Cowboys are now just a little over 24 hours away from kicking off their 2016 season against the division rival New York Giants. I don't know about you, but watching the Denver Broncos narrowly escape the Carolina Panthers Thursday night really has me excited to finally see the...
WHAT: New York Giants at Dallas Cowboys WHEN: Sunday, 3:25 PM (CT) WHERE: AT&T Stadium, Arlington, Texas TELEVISION: FOX There is really only one guarantee heading into the Week 1 division rival match up for the Dallas Cowboys and the New York Giants, and that is it will be a hard-fought battle between...
Death, Taxes, and a week one clash with the New York Giants. Including this Sunday's game, the Dallas Cowboys will have faced New York in four of their past five season openers. It's a bitter rivalry. Only this time, there are plenty of new faces on each side of the ball...
Two things have become common knowledge of just about all football fans. The Cowboys have the most dominant offensive line in football. But, they also have (what we think) will be one of the worst defensive lines in terms of pass rush in the league. It seems counter-intuitive that a...
This Sunday, the Dallas Cowboys open up their 2016 season against the division rival New York Giants. While the game is just the first of 16 to be played, the final result will have a much bigger impact than just one game in the standings. Of course, being a divisional...
In the Tony Romo era, the NFC East has been called many things, but certainly not predictable. Over the past ten seasons, the Dallas Cowboys and the Philadelphia Eagles have won 3 division titles each, while the New York Giants and the Washington Redskins have won two, respectively. Over that period of time, no team has...
Many moons ago I was in the Sixth Grade Band at my Middle School. Don't worry, I was on the Drumline so it was cool. As you can imagine we had a lot of elements to our "uniform" that made us the swaggiest (Is that a word? It is now.)...
The NFC East position group outlook is coming to a close. Each and every position group in the NFC East has been discussed so far, besides one, the safeties. Sure, safeties and cornerbacks are normally combined into one "grouping" called the secondary, but I decided to split them up and discuss them separately. Without any more delay, let's take a look at the free and strong safeties this division has to offer. Dallas Cowboys Cowboys safety play over the past few seasons has been inconsistent, to say the least.
While football pundits tend to refer to the middle linebacker as the "quarterback of the defense," no defensive position group sees the quarterback-like criticism from fans like the cornerbacks do. As soon as an offense gets their passing game going, everyone wants to jump on the corners, wondering what could possibly be going wrong with the coverage. Sometimes, the criticism isn't warranted and is delivered by not-so-knowledgeable fans. But other times, this heavy criticism points to just how important having formidable cornerbacks is. With that being said, let's take a look at the cornerback groups of the NFC East.
It's been a while since we last visited the NFC East battle for supremacy. With only a few groups remaining, let's finally return to this journey to explore the linebackers of this division. Dallas Cowboys For my money, the Dallas Cowboys linebacker corp is the most interesting position group in the entire division. Purely "on paper" talent-wise, the Cowboys have the best linebackers. Between Sean Lee, Rolando McClain, and newly drafted Jaylon Smith, there is a ton of talent in this group.
We are a little over halfway through the NFC East position group rankings, with our Dallas Cowboys in the "lead," with three wins out of the first five groups. Now we move to tight ends, a group which the Dallas Cowboys have dominated in over the last decade, but are beginning to fall behind the pack. Dallas Cowboys Like I said, the Cowboys have had Jason Witten since 2003. So they are used to being on top of the tight end category in the NFC East. However, the tide is beginning to turn as Witten ages and the younger Cowboys tight ends have yet to step up.
Last time, we finally dove into the analysis of the NFC East's linemen. Though we started by taking a look at what many consider the more "athletic" bigs, let's now rank the big uglies across this division. Dallas Cowboys After talking about the potentially disastrous defensive line last time, let's move on to greener pastures in Dallas. I don't know if any offensive line on the planet is discussed more than the Dallas Cowboys' "Great Wall of Dallas." Of course, Travis Frederick anchors the middle as the center, Zack Martin and La'el Collins start as the guards, and Doug Free and Tyron Smith serve as the starting tackles.
So far in this series, we have focused solely on the offensive side of the ball, taking a look at the quarterbacks, running backs, and wide receivers of the NFC East. I am an offensive lineman, so I feel like I am doing myself and the readers a disservice by starting the series off with the three offensive "skill" position groups. Let's finally take a look at the real athletes on the field, the big guys up-front, starting with the defensive line. Dallas Cowboys Maybe it was the Cowboys fan in me that held off the defensive side of the ball until the fourth post, because for the first time all series, the Cowboys might have the most question marks of the entire division. Dallas decided to let Greg Hardy walk this offseason, a decision which I and plenty of fans are behind.
As we move along in this position group ranking series with the third installment, we stay on the offensive side of the ball. Having already touched on the quarterbacks and wide receivers, why not get to the last "small skill" position group, the running backs. Dallas Cowboys No NFC East team made the splash at running back this offseason like the Dallas Cowboys did in the 2016 draft. By drafting Ohio State stud back Ezekiel Elliott with the number four overall pick, the Cowboys further solidified what was already considered to be a formidable and feared running game. Before drafting Zeke, Dallas signed former Washington Redskins running back Alfred Morris in free agency.
After assessing the divisions' signal callers in the last installment of the series, why not take a look at the main targets in the passing games of each offense. Today we will discuss possibly the best position group in the entire division, a group which features superstars such as Dez Bryant, Odell Beckham, and Desean Jackson, the wide receivers. Dallas Cowboys Outside of star player and weekly beast Dez Bryant, the Cowboys' receivers have been much maligned throughout this offseason. Two seasons ago, players like Terrance Williams and Cole Beasley were considered to be the perfect compliments to Dez Bryant in the Cowboys dynamic offense. But after injuries to both Bryant and quarterback Tony Romo resulted in lackluster years from Dallas' receivers, this group has a lot to prove in the eyes of many this season.
For decades, the NFC East was the most competitive and most feared division in all of football. In fact, an NFC East team participated in six of the nine Super Bowls played between the 1987 and 1995 seasons. However if you were to refer to the NFC East as the most competitive and most feared division in all of football today, you'd be only half right. Lacking a repeat champion since 2004, the division has become a source of parity while still maintaining the highly regarded and nationally viewed rivalry games which have become a staple of the NFL. After a horrid season a year ago where it looked as if a 7-9 team could steal the division at many points during the year, the NFC East looks to be improved and ready to begin to return to its old school form.
