The Cowboys will play their first game of 2016 tonight (!!!), but Madden players will still have to wait a bit to break out America's Team in the upcoming Madden 17 video game. When the time finally comes to earn bragging rights over your friends though, the Cowboys will...
It's finally August. Training camps are underway, the preseason is getting started, and regular season football is right around the corner. But, it is still early August, which means many sports media outlets are reaching for topics to talk about in an effort to fill air time. To fill those slots...
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...
Alright Cowboys Nation, who's excited for some Dallas Cowboys football!? Who's ready to finally see Ezekiel Elliott run through defenses? How about Dez Bryant throwing up the X? Defensively, maybe it is Byron Jones or Tyrone Crawford that you are excited about. However, more than anything, Cowboys fans can take...
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.
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.
The path to the Super Bowl, starts first by running the NFC East. To do that, the Cowboys will have to best the New York Giants, the Washington Redskins and the Philadelphia Eagles. Today, we look at the Philadelphia Eagles’ draft picks that could be the biggest problem for the Cowboys. Believe me this wasn’t easy, because even when I put my bias aside, I’m not sure that the Eagles hit home runs on any of their draft picks. But, I have to be fair, so we’ll look at Carson Wentz, Isaac Seumalo and Alex McCalister.
Historical patterns don't always hold water. We just watched the Golden State Warriors become only the 10th team in NBA history to come back from a 3-1 series deficit. Special teams rise above the circumstances. Right now nobody in the NFC East looks all that special. Maybe we'll change tune in retrospect, but it appears that all four teams have a chance to be competitive.
The first 31 picks (sorry New England) have come and gone in the 2016 NFL Draft. The Cowboys and each of their NFC East opponents have added a player who they expect to be a key cog in their team for years to come. I've written a more extensive recap about the Cowboys' night already. For this article, let's do a brief rundown of what our division rivals were up to and how it will affect their matchups with Dallas. Eagles select Carson Wentz, QB There was no surprise in Philadelphia's pick.
Today is April 22nd. You already knew that, though. You also knew that, despite the NBA and NHL playoffs being well underway, the NFL has dominated the news over the past couple of days. Reason being, the draft is just 6 days away, Josh Norman is suddenly a free agent, and players are reporting back to their team's facilities to being preparation for the 2016 campaign. Of course, all of these things drew plenty of attention from Cowboys Nation faithful on Twitter.
Even in the offseason, I still have a reason to be nervous about my beloved Dallas Cowboys. Recently, I've had these nightmares about the upcoming NFL Draft that are so startling, they wake me up in the middle of the night. They start off very routine: Laremy Tunsil first, Jared Goff...
When discussing why he chose to sign with the Cowboys, defensive lineman Cedric Thornton said, "I think we have a chance to win a championship here. This isn’t a 4-12 team." One of the most famous of Bill Parcells' many quotes is that, "You are what your record says you...
Although it has been relatively quiet, it has been a very good off season for the Dallas Cowboys thus far. They have put an emphasis on re-signing their own free agents, by locking up Morris Claiborne, Rolando McClain, James Hanna, and Kyle Wilber. They also went out and upgraded...
The NFL Free Agency period started yesterday and, if you didn't know any better, the Cowboys have already been eliminated from postseason contention for 2016. Well, maybe they can sneak into a wild card spot. They have NO SHOT of winning the division though, because the New York Giants already...
There is no question that the New York Giants defense is in desperate need of help at all three levels. The Giants ranked 24th in rushing defense and dead last in passing defense this past season. So, not surprisingly, the Giants first moves of this young free agency period come...
In a move that will surprise very few people around the NFL world, the Redskins officially parted ways with 2012 Offensive Rookie of the Year QB Robert Griffin III. Griffin's downfall in Washington was an ugly one, as he saw just one game on the active roster in this...
Redskins quarterback Kirk Cousins led his team to 9 wins in 2015, and their first NFC East title since 2012 after being named the starter over Robert Griffin III before the season. Despite the stability he provided Washington at the quarterback position, something they have desperately needed for years,...
Indianapolis Colts General Manager Ryan Grigson went out of his way at the podium during the NFL Combine to defend his 8-8 football team, which played 9 games without Andrew Luck this season but still missed the playoffs, by apparently taking comfort in the fact they were better than...
The New York Giants have stumbled their way to losses in four of their last five games, and have seen a prime chance at winning the weak NFC East slip away. They face an offseason of many questions, as everything from the team personnel to the coaching staff will...
The Eagles have parted ways with Chip Kelly, leaving the future of their roster in turmoil. Whoever comes in to take over the team will be stuck with a collection of hand-picked Chip Kelly players as well as a few of Andy Reid's guys as well. They will also have...
