Dak Prescott has done enough to establish himself as the Cowboys franchise quarterback

Dak Prescott has done enough to establish himself as the Cowboys franchise quarterback

Despite another failed trip to the NFC Championship game, the Dallas Cowboys have a franchise quarterback. The Dallas Cowboys just completed a remarkable, and fun, mid-season turnaround that saw them sweep the Philadelphia Eagles, give the New Orleans Saints one of their only two legitimate losses, and Amari Cooper burst onto the scene as a bona fide weapon for this offense. Unfortunately, the loss to the Los Angeles Rams has caused some of the passionate Dallas Cowboys fan base to lose sight of what this team accomplished in 2018. Sure, it is frustrating that the Divisional Round has been...

How Scott Linehan failed the Cowboys and their offense

How Scott Linehan failed the Cowboys and their offense

Scott Linehan really should have done so much better. OK, what came to mind when I first started thinking about writing this article was the Green Arrow telling Scott Linehan “You have failed this franchise!” But now that I’ve dispensed with my geek outburst, let’s get into the meat of things. The genesis of this goes back a couple of days, before the divorce between the Dallas Cowboys and their offensive coordinator became final. It started with a look at quarterback Dak Prescott and how he performed down the stretch this season. Then the aspect of how Ezekiel Elliott is one of...

Five possible candidates to be the Dallas Cowboys' next offensive coordinator

Five possible candidates to be the Dallas Cowboys' next offensive coordinator

Officially parting ways with offensive coordinator Scott Linehan on Friday gave hope to those who have been demanding a more creative Cowboys offense.Some pumping of the brakes is recommended, though.The offense isn't going to come out of one offseason looking like the Rams, Saints or Chiefs. There will likely be more pre-snap motion, some shorter developing routes and more opportunities for Dak Prescott to use his feet.But just remember that Jason Garrett is still running the show, and he's going to pick someone that shares his same offensive principles.Here are five possible candidates to...

Three must-have qualities a new offensive coordinator should bring to the Dallas Cowboys

Three must-have qualities a new offensive coordinator should bring to the Dallas Cowboys

These can be tough times for those not named -- or connected to -- Sean McVay or Sean Payton.Can the Cowboys find the next play-calling wizard, a la the young Los Angeles Rams coach or bold leader of the New Orleans Saints? Will they even try, now that offensive coordinator Scott Linehan isn't returning?That much remains to be seen. But it is clear that Dallas' next OC will have to be able to: develop Dak Prescott as the quarterback enters his fourth season, bring a little creativity to a run-first offense and revamp the passing game in a league where it's only increasingly vital.Here's a...

Report: Cowboys game plan saw less input from Scott Linehan down stretch... and more from Dak Prescott

Report: Cowboys game plan saw less input from Scott Linehan down stretch... and more from Dak Prescott

Dak Prescott was helping design the game plan. Friday saw the Dallas Cowboys fire Scott Linehan and such a move brings out a lot of questions. Who will replace Linehan? Who ultimately made the decision? Who even wanted the decision to be made? How long was this in the works? Time will likely give us some answers, but we have a bit of an interesting one in the immediate aftermath of it all. There were some murmurings that Scott Linehan’s fingerprints weren’t all over the Week 17 game in New York as they had been in other contests, our own Tom Ryle elaborated on this following the game,...

Film room: 3 offensive players the Cowboys should target in free agency, including a TE who can stretch defenses

Film room: 3 offensive players the Cowboys should target in free agency, including a TE who can stretch defenses

Earlier this week, we took a look at some prospects the Cowboys may consider in the NFL draft. It only makes sense that we now turn our attention to the other major personnel component of the offseason -- free agency, which begins March 13.The Cowboys are estimated to have a little over $54 million in cap space this offseason, according to Over The Cap, but much of that will likely be taken up by re-signing (DeMarcus Lawrence) and extending those who are entering the final year on their contract (Amari Cooper, Dak Prescott, Byron Jones).Because of this and the front office's overall offseason...

If you’re wondering how much Dak Prescott’s contract extension might be worth, take a look at his and Derek Carr’s first three years

If you’re wondering how much Dak Prescott’s contract extension might be worth, take a look at his and Derek Carr’s first three years

Could this be a sign of Dak Prescott’s potential deal? One of the issues that the Dallas Cowboys front office will likely have to deal with this offseason is the contractual status of their quarterback, Dak Prescott. Prescott is a non-first-round pick entering his fourth season so he is eligible to sign an extension. Given Prescott is a fourth-round pick, he would probably very much like to sign an extension. This subject is a bull in a china shop with Cowboys fans everywhere. There’s a large contingency of folks who do not want to see the team pay Dak Prescott top dollar because they...

Cowboys Scott Linehan dilemma is tied to Dak Prescott, most important offseason decision

Cowboys Scott Linehan dilemma is tied to Dak Prescott, most important offseason decision

Does Linehan stay or go? Well, it all depends on Dak Prescott. This Cowboys season will be remembered for a variety of reasons but mostly for the major turnaround this team accomplished. As disappointed as everyone is that the ride didn’t continue, this team became the first in franchise history to do what they did. They also became the seventh in NFL history to win a playoff game after starting 3-5. As exciting as the Cowboys made the ride, it also caused quite a bit of anxiety. It truly was two seasons in one, the comeback was remarkable but this team underachieved on a colossal level...

Should the Cowboys be considered the NFC East favorite in 2019?

Jon Machota, Cowboys beat writer for SportsDayDFW.com and The Dallas Morning News, answers your questions about the team in a live chat recently. Here are the highlights:Other than DeMarcus Lawrence, which of their free agents should the Cowboys place the most priority on re-signing?Machota: For me, I'd rank the top 5 as DeMarcus Lawrence, Dak Prescott, Amari Cooper, Ezekiel Elliott and Byron Jones. Zeke is their most valuable player, but he's under contract through 2019 and actually 2020 because they would certainly pick up his fifth-year option.Do you think Travis Frederick will be able to...

NFL Network analyst makes case for why Cowboys need to make long-term investment in Dak Prescott

NFL Network analyst Bucky Brooks recently joined JaM Session on KESN-FM 103.3 ESPN to talk all things Dallas Cowboys. Here are some highlights:What's your take on Dak Prescott and why some fans don't think he's the answer?Brooks: "I think the Dallas fan base is interesting and unique because when they had Tony Romo, they hated Tony Romo. I just think it is a part of playing for America's Team. There are a lot of eyeballs on the franchise. And because so many of their games are prime-time games, you have an opportunity to see all of the flaws and the mistakes. "I think in Dak Prescott, I think...
