More important for the 2019 Dallas Cowboys: Dak Prescott or Ezekiel Elliott?

Which player is more important to the 2019 success of the Dallas Cowboys, the quarterback or the running back? A couple of weeks ago, the Westgate Sportsbook released their odds for the 2019 NFL MVP, and three Cowboys made the 74-player strong list, Ezekiel Elliott (60-1), Dak Prescott (100-1), and Amari Cooper (200-1).

Report: Ezekiel Elliott has talked about holding out of training camp without contract extension

Report: Ezekiel Elliott has talked about holding out of training camp without contract extension

An anonymous report, so how accurate it is is questionable, but worth noting. The Dallas Cowboys will be heading to Oxnard, California for training camp very soon, and they hope everyone will be there and ready to go except for the injured. There are currently contract extensions to be negotiated for both Dak Prescott and Amari Cooper, but those conversations have left Ezekiel Elliott out in the cold. Zeke is also eligible for a new deal, but given that he’s a running back and has had run-ins with the league office because of his off-the-field issues, there’s a strong argument against...

NFL analyst says Cowboys have some of the best defensive triplets in the league

NFL analyst says Cowboys have some of the best defensive triplets in the league

It’s a concept usually applied to the offense, but it can be applied on the other side of the ball. The term “triplets” was created to describe the legendary offensive force composed of Troy Aikman, Emmitt Smith, and Michael Irvin. Collectively, they were the engine driving the Dallas Cowboys dynasty of the early 1990s. Now the term has been appropriated across the league. Mostly it has been used to describe the same combination of offensive skill players. A recent example was put up at NFL.com, ranking the current trio of Dak Prescott, Ezekiel Elliott, and Amari Cooper as the twelfth...

Raiders safety Karl Joseph named as possible trade fit for Cowboys

Raiders safety Karl Joseph named as possible trade fit for Cowboys

Should Dallas make a move for the safety? Death, taxes, and the Dallas Cowboys being connected to players from the Oakland Raiders. America’s Team and the soon to be Las Vegas Raiders have been business partners, or at least connected in business, for some time now. Players like Rolando McClain (who’s back in the news now amazingly), Darren McFadden, Brice Butler, Keith Smith, Jamize Olawale, Jihad Ward, Ryan Switzer, and of course Amari Cooper have all spent time with both clubs in recent memory. Could another name be added to the list? It depends on who you ask, and if that person is...

Just say no to Rolando McClain returning to the Cowboys

Just say no to Rolando McClain returning to the Cowboys

It worked for the Cowboys once, but that’s good enough. Just as Boise State appears to be a college farms system for the Dallas Cowboys, the Oakland Raiders have been the team’s pro version as many former Raiders players somehow find their way on the Cowboys’ roster. Over the last five years, the Cowboys have ended up with three of the Raiders’ former first-round draft picks, all of which have been selected within the top eight picks of the draft. Last year, the team traded for Amari Cooper (fourth overall, 2015) and he had over 1,000 yards receiving with over 70% of it coming in...

Cowboys' offensive arsenal makes a big jump from last season in ESPN ranking

The Cowboys' offense looks very different than it did this time last year.Dallas brought in Amari Cooper, Randall Cobb and a very familiar face that has returned to the tight end room.ESPN's Bill Barnwell recently ranked the NFL's offensive arsenals with the Cowboys coming in at sixth. While they did not crack the top five, the true sign of success should be that the team jumped from 30th in 2018.The rankings were based on teams' skill position talent with no consideration given to the impact of the quarterback, offensive line or scheme. Therefore, a team's rank is purely based on how...

Looking at just how good the Cowboys’ offseason was

With a little time to digest things, our debating team evaluates where the team stands headed into training camp. The Dallas Cowboys have had what looks like a very good offseason, despite having traded away their first-round pick for Amari Cooper (which seems to have worked out just fine). Our Michael Strawn and Tom Ryle take a look at some of the more interesting developments. Tom: We are very excited about the new additions to the roster, which we will get to in a bit, but I think we can agree that the biggest single move was the promotion of Kellen Moore to replace Scott Linehan at...

What it would take for the Dallas Cowboys to move on from Ezekiel Elliott

Nothing is guaranteed, even when it comes to their All-Pro running back. Sign him or let him walk? That’s been the name of the game played by many Dallas Cowboys fans as we try to figure out what the team is going to do with their young star players. Dak Prescott and Amari Cooper are close to the end of their rookie deal and Ezekiel Elliott is not far behind; people have been weighing their options when it comes to who gets a second contract and who they walk away from. More than likely, all three will receive extensions, but as we’ve seen before - nothing is guaranteed. And if a player...
