I will be completely honest with you, and say that I was a little bit more worried this week than I have been. I thought that the Dallas Cowboys would struggle a little bit more with the Washington Redskins, especially with their explosive offense. There were just a lot of...
The Dallas Cowboys are heading back to Lambeau Field for the first time since the infamous "Dez Catch" to take on the Green Bay Packers. The Packers don't look like the same kind of team we have seen the past several seasons and that makes this a very winnable game...
Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Brice Butler has been a hot topic for discussion before, but knowing that All-Pro WR Dez Bryant would likely be out against the San Francisco 49ers, the spotlight was focused in Butler's direction once again. Heading into the 2016 season, many people believed that #19 would...
The Dallas Cowboys are currently sitting at 2-1 and are headed to San Francisco to take on a struggling 49ers team. The Cowboys will face a familiar foe in the 49ers new head coach Chip Kelly, who you can bet really wants to beat his former division rival. I wouldn't...
After playing two consecutive games against division rivals, the Dallas Cowboys will finally get to play an opponent outside their own division Sunday night when they square off against the Chicago Bears in a primetime matchup at AT&T Stadium. This will be John Fox's first trip to AT&T Stadium as...
You know, it's funny how just two regular-season games can change your entire perception of the depth chart for the Dallas Cowboys. Of course, I'm not suggesting that two games into the 2016 season has completely shaken up the Cowboys depth chart, but I do think it has impacted how...
The Dallas Cowboys were nearly able to do just enough to come away with a victory against the New York Giants to kick off the 2016 season, but ultimately failed in the last few seconds of the game. If you are anything like me, you are left with more questions...
Is it too obvious to state that the Dallas Cowboys will live and die by the success of their offense in 2016? It should really come to no surprise to anyone that has followed the Dallas Cowboys over the past several years. The organization has invested heavily on the offensive...
Dak Prescott is the starter. Dak Prescott is the starter. Dak Prescott is the starter. You know, as much as I repeat that sentence it still seems a little surreal that the Dallas Cowboys will be starting a rookie quarterback Week 1 at AT&T Stadium against the New York Giants. Prescott...
The Dallas Cowboys will face off against the Seattle Seahawks tonight for their "dress rehearsal" preseason game. We probably couldn't have asked for a better team to match up against for the all-important third preseason game. We all know that the Cowboys pride themselves on their high-powered offense, while the...
The Dallas Cowboys will play their first home game of the 2016 season tomorrow night, as the Miami Dolphins will be in town to once again face Tony Romo and company. That's right, Tony Romo is planning on suiting up and returning to action in front of Cowboys Nation! If...
It's no secret that the Dallas Cowboys have one of the best offensive units in the entire NFL, but you probably wouldn't guess that if you are referencing back to what happened in 2015. The offense struggled mightily last season and we all know why. Tony Romo's twice broken collarbone...
It's been a weirdly awesome week here at Inside The Star. I mean, for crying out loud, I wrote about pants yesterday. Weird seems to be the deal these days. Kids are running around playing Pokemon Go, and running back unit rankings are considering the Cowboys 10th in the NFL. My...
After all of these months we are finally almost out of the NFL dead zone. Training camp is right around the corner and soon the regular season will be kicking off, meaning we can stop paying attention to rankings and projections and focus on results. Those days aren't here yet,...
Earlier today we listed the defensive players whose contracts will expiring in 2016. Now, here are the offensive players with expiring contracts and what being in a contract year could mean for them this season: Charles Brown, OT Dallas never had to find out how good or bad Brown was last year as Tyron...
The NFL off season can be a tricky time for fans and football writers alike. Prior to 32 teams opening up their training camps this summer on a quest towards Super Bowl LI, they must get through the remainder of June and most of July without a whole lot going on. For Cowboys Nation to pass the time, we can always count on those lovable and incredibly accurate national headlines - right? Wrong. It is at this point in the summer that outlets like Fox Sports always undervalue the Dallas Cowboys and their status entering the new season.
Earning a roster spot in the NFL isn't easy, and keeping that roster spot is even harder. Year in and year out, players are fighting for their NFL lives and they all know that their job security is teetering, knowing that the slightest tip of the scale can end their professional careers. Rookies are just hoping to begin their careers, while some veterans are coming to the end of theirs. For those players that enter the league as undrafted free agents, this is especially true. They have to fight harder than anybody to prove themselves and hope they get a chance to catch the attention of the coaches.
The Dallas Cowboys spent the majority of their 2016 draft picks on the defensive side of the ball, and I attempted to find roles for that group of 5 players yesterday here on Inside The Star.  However, the pick that we spent all off season talking about at fourth overall was used on a star offensive player in Ezekiel Elliott.  While finding Elliott's role may not be too difficult, Dallas also used a fourth round pick on QB Dak Prescott - their first drafted quarterback since 2009 - and their last two picks of the 6th round on RB Darius Jackson and TE Rico Gathers respectively. Let's attempt to find roles for all four of these rookies in 2016: RB Ezekiel Elliott (Round 1, Pick 4) As mentioned, finding Elliott's projected role is not all that hard.
The 2016 Dallas Cowboys are on a mission to re-create their winning ways of 2014. Led by their offensive line that season, DeMarco Murray led the league with 1,845 rushing yards. Murray's dominance made things easy for Offensive Coordinator Scott Linehan, as he called his number to carry the football about 24 times a game on average (24.5). When Murray wasn't churning out yards on the ground, a healthy Tony Romo and Dez Bryant feasted on defenses through the air as a result of Murray's production.
For a period of time, the Dallas Cowboys couldn't seem to get away from the 8-8 record, until finally in 2014 they finished with a 12-4 winning season. Unfortunately, the numbers 12 and 4 would pop up again in 2015, but this time the numbers flip-flopped which resulted in the Cowboys finishing with a 4-12 record and having one of the worst seasons in franchise history. The 2014 blueprint that the Cowboys used should once again work for the organization in 2016. There are number reasons why you can take comfort in the fact that this is the direction that head coach Jason Garrett and the rest of the coaching staff believe that this is the best course of action to take. The Cowboys offense carried the entire team in 2014 and helped them go undefeated on the road (8-0).
