In a NFC East with many new faces, Cowboys' Dak Prescott and Ezekiel Elliott don't feel so young at all

In a NFC East with many new faces, Cowboys' Dak Prescott and Ezekiel Elliott don't feel so young at all

In so many ways, Dak Prescott and Ezekiel Elliott are just getting started on their professional careers. That's why, as they prepare for the start of their third Cowboys training camp in Oxnard, Calif., this week, it's so odd to find them as the only sign of backfield stability in the powerful NFC East. The Super Bowl champs aren't really getting a new quarterback so much as welcoming the return of their young leader whose season ended in December last fall. But where Carson Wentz is now the man the Eagles build around, Jay Ajayi gets his first full season as the feature back, something the...

Dak Prescott needs a go-to guy in the passing game, and here's why it can't be Ezekiel Elliott...

Rick Gosselin recently went on KTCK 1310 AM/96.7FM The Ticket's Norm and D Invasion to talk about the Cowboys. Here are some highlights, edited for clarity.How confident are you in the Cowboys' receiving corps and who is the biggest loss?Gosselin: "Well they're going to get single coverage by and large... it'll be an eight men in the box thing. My one concern... I think the huge loss is Jason Witten. He was such a security blanket -- when in doubt, throw it to the big No. 82 who's giving you seven yards. And he's gone. I don't know who that's going to become, whether that's going to be Cole...

The Cowboys D-lineman to watch in David Irving's absence; what DeMarco Murray's retirement signifies

Tim Cowlishaw, sports columnist for SportsDayDFW.com and The Dallas Morning News, author of Drunk on Sports and panelist on ESPN's "Around the Horn,"answered questions about the Cowboys, Rangers, Mavericks, Stars and local college sports in his weekly reader mailbag. Here are some highlights:Question: Will Dak Prescott rebound or disappoint once again in 2018? Or will Zeke's presence make it irrelevant?Tim Cowlishaw: I don't think Zeke makes anything irrelevant. Dak still has to play very well for this team to have a chance in what I believe is again a very tough division. And I assume Dak...

Cowboys training camp pipe dreaming: Sorting out the quarterback room

Let’s chug some of that blue Kool-Aid and envision a best case scenario. Let’s put aside the worries for a bit and indulge in a bit of pure, unbridled optimism about the 2018 Dallas Cowboys. The team certainly has many questions to answer. But this is all about looking at the bright side. We are going to take a look at the expected camp battle between Cooper Rush and Mike White to back up Dak Prescott, and come up with something that is probably not likely to happen, but that would be a rather pleasing outcome. Our Cole Patterson took a look at the expected showdown between Rush and...

ESPN writer predicts that the Dallas Cowboys will win one of the next three Super Bowls

And that the Eagles won’t. It’s the offseason, so anybody and everybody are throwing around predictions for the upcoming season. Most of those include which player will win MVP honors, what team will surprise, and which playoff team will fail to make the postseason. ESPN’s Dan Graziano took the whole predictions thing a step further, as he wrote on ‘25 NFL predictions through 2021’. One prediction that stands out the most, though, is his bold prediction that America’s Team will hoist the Lombari Trophy once in the next three seasons. His reasoning? Zeke, Dak Prescott, and the...

ESPN future power rankings: Where do current Dallas Cowboys fit into the picture?

The future is not so bright that we have to wear shades when it comes to the Cowboys and ESPN. There was a time, say after the 2016 season, when the Cowboys were seen as a team of the future, a franchise that was going to challenge for dominance in the NFL.

The Cowboys are coming off a 9-7 non-playoff season, Dak Prescott had a rough second half of the season, Dez Bryant and Jason Witten are no longer on the roster -...
