Tweet Break: Final Roster Decisions and Rookie Preparations for Week 1

Cowboys Nation has had to tweet through too many sad moments recently. Twitter is a go to place for NFL fans to collectively come together and instantly share thoughts and opinions on anything going on that is pigskin related.

We used it as such to get through the Dez catch in Green Bay, the Romo injuries, and the ensuing backup quarterback play that often time made it hard to find words to justify their performances.

Well, in just two days, Cowboys’ fans everywhere will be able to happily live tweet the team’s season opener against the Giants. We’ve made it through the off season, and even got to take in a real game as a warm up last night.

The build up to the Giants’ visit to Dallas has covered everything from final roster cuts to fantasy decisions, all of which will be featured here on Tweet Break.

You ready? Get ready, it is football season!

The Final 53: Earning Their Stars

Not every player that set out this summer to battle the intense sun of Oxnard, California will get a chance to represent the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday, as roster cuts naturally forced some tough decisions.

Of the players that will suit up in the silver and blue on Sunday, a few of them took to Twitter to express their gratitude.

Grateful to make it through the my 5th training camp. Time to get to work with my brothers….

Dak and Zeke Ready to Work

Brandon George on Twitter

Cowboys have started a rookie QB/RB in same game four times in team history. They’ve won all 4 games.

Amazingly, the Cowboys are entering 2016 with plenty of optimism despite starting a rookie at quarterback and running back. With plenty of offensive talent surrounding both Dak Prescott and Ezekiel Elliott, there is certainly reason for optimism.

Not only have Cowboys’ coaches and fans witnessed the all-around positive play of fourth-round pick Dak Prescott, but plenty of other neutral NFL followers have expressed their thoughts on just how great Dak has played thus far.

The more I study Dak Prescott the more impressed I am. I will be surprised if he doesn’t play for over a decade in the NFL. #CowboysNation

NFL: “I’m saying that Dak… He is going to have this team in the playoffs.” – MarshallFaulk

With the strength of the Cowboys being their offensive line, and the strength of the Giants’ defense being their defensive front, we’re in for a great battle between these two units – with plenty of eyes ready to watch Prescott and Elliott potentially give us a glimpse into the future of America’s Team.

They may both be rookies, but the Cowboys have reasons to be excited about their new backfield.

Just realized Zeke & Dak’s numbers, in this order, spell out the area code for Dallas. You’re welcome, tshirt makers
