Point/Counterpoint: Are Sean Lee’s best days behind him?

Point/Counterpoint: Are Sean Lee’s best days behind him?

It has not been a great start for the General. With the departures of Dez Bryant, Jason Witten, and Dan Bailey, Sean Lee is now the elder statesman of the Dallas Cowboys (well, outside the seemingly ageless L.P. Ladouceur). But so far this season, Lee has not been his normally outstanding self on the field. He has missed tackles, looked a bit lost at times, and is being outplayed, or at least outproduced, by more than one other Dallas linebacker. So has the General of the defense reached the end? Is it all downhill from now, or will he rebound. Michael Strawn and I had a little debate...

Jason Garrett: Randy Gregory, Datone Jones had good practices, Sean Lee will try again today

Jason Garrett: Randy Gregory, Datone Jones had good practices, Sean Lee will try again today

Coach updates the state of the Cowboys. It’s Thursday and the Cowboys are in preparation for a road trip to Seattle to face the Seahawks. Coach Garrett addressed the media. (All Garrett’s answers are paraphrased and not actual quotes). Is it tougher put in tight end packages without Jason Witten this year? We’ve had a variety of tight end packages over the years, we’ve had other guys play in two and three tight end sets. The only thing that is different is we don’t have Jason WItten in there on all the plays. We certainly called plays that focused on Witten. Each if these guys...

The Cowboys have the most favorable upcoming three weeks of any NFL team

The Cowboys have the most favorable upcoming three weeks of any NFL team

Things could be nice through early October. The Dallas Cowboys are 1-1 and in first place in the NFC East. Life is good. Obviously we want more. One win isn’t going to send any team to the playoffs so the Cowboys better plan on adding to that column, and adding a whole lot to it. They’ll have to go through Seattle this week if they want to do so, but given what we saw on Monday night that might not be so treacherous. The Seahawks did indeed look very beatable under Jason Witten’s watchful Monday Night Football eye in Chicago. Their offense is broken, their offensive line breaks even...

Is Cowboys offense's slowdown in second and third quarters reason for concern?

Is Cowboys offense's slowdown in second and third quarters reason for concern?

We’ve seen two games from the Cowboys now - a little good, a little bad if you will. Is that enough to know who this team is yet? In the latest SportsDay Cowboys Roundtable, our experts on America’s Team reveal what they can tell so far.Jason Garrett has said the Cowboys offense needs more "givens" -- plays the team can count on to be successful. What do you consider to be the team's current givens? Have you seen any plays or types of plays that could develop into givens?David Moore: The Y-option was a big part of this offense since the early days of tight end Jason Witten. The back...

Cowboys vs Giants: Four candidates to be the X-Factor player of the game for Dallas

Cowboys vs Giants: Four candidates to be the X-Factor player of the game for Dallas

Which player do you think will be the difference-maker when the Cowboys host the Giants on Sunday night? Whenever the Dallas Cowboys face the New York Giants there’s always something crazy that happens. Whether it’s Dez Bryant’s finger landing out of bounds, Jason Pierre-Paul blocking a Dan Bailey field goal, Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie running down the sidelines for a defensive touchdown, or Tony Romo hitting Jason Witten in the closing seconds of the game - it always seems to be complete madness. Of course, we won’t see any of that on Sunday because none of those players are...

Cowboys Poll: Who do you blame for the disappointing offense?

Cowboys Poll: Who do you blame for the disappointing offense?

There’s plenty of blame to go around. Who bares the brunt of it? The Cowboys’ season opener in Carolina came and went, and Dallas left the field with a 16-8 loss. The main talking point around the game was how terrible the Cowboys’ offense was. Naturally, the losses of Dez Bryant and Jason Witten were expected to present an adjustment period for the passing game, and Travis Frederick’s absence leaves a big, bearded hole in the offensive line no matter how well Joe Looney may have played. The Cowboys still have a lot of offensive weapons, though, the biggest being Ezekiel Elliott....

The Cowboys missed Dez Bryant more than Jason Witten in Week 1 loss to Carolina

Jon Machota, Cowboys beat writer for SportsDayDFW.com and The Dallas Morning News, answered questions about the team during a live chat Tuesday. Here are some highlights:Question: Is there too much panic one game into the season? Carolina is a good team.Jon Machota: I wouldn't say there's too much panic. Yes, Carolina has a good defense. That should be noted. But seven of the last nine teams the Cowboys have played don't all have good defenses and the offense has looked like it did Sunday. The sample size is large enough for legitimate concern.Q: Who did the Cowboys miss more on Sunday: Dez...

Cowboys news: The Cowboys offense is the narrative, and the narrative ain’t good

And the ongoing Randy Gregory saga What we learned from Sunday's Week 1 games - Staff, NFL.comThe folks at NFL.com came to the same conclusions most of us did regarding the Cowboys' offensive performance Sunday. Cowboys fans entering the season worried about the offense sans Dez Bryant and Jason Witten were likely pulling their hair out in the first half. Elliott was held to 2.5 yards per carry on seven totes through two quarters. Self-inflicted wounds constantly put the Cowboys in negative situations, including several holding calls. Rookie guard Connor Williams was pushed back into...

Nothing about the Cowboys' passing attack has changed, no matter how much you bring up Dez and Witten

CHARLOTTE -- It took all of one game, 60 minutes of football, for the Cowboys to determine it was time to remove memories (and touchdowns) left behind by Dez Bryant and Jason Witten. Actually, it was quarterback Dak Prescott who made that decision after a long afternoon's failure to produce a passing attack in a 16-8 season-opening loss to the Carolina Panthers."We're not talking about guys we used to have or guys that are missing," Prescott said. "We have a lot of great players on this team, good guys who come in and work every day and gave everything they had tonight."Everything turned out...

Cowboys inactive players for opener at Carolina include TE Rico Gathers

CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Cowboys tight end Rico Gathers is among the club's seven inactive players for their season opener Sunday at Carolina.The Cowboys will play their first regular-season game Sunday without red zone targets receiver Dez Bryant and tight end Jason Witten, so Gathers could have helped out Dallas close to the end zone.However, Gathers has been slow to develop with his blocking and was arrested the night before the Cowboys made their final roster cuts Aug. 31 in Frisco for misdemeanor possession of marijuana. Cowboys coach Jason Garrett said after the arrest that Gathers could face...
