Five Potential Unsung Heroes Of The Cowboys' 2016 Roster

Which five Cowboys will make an impact, yet not receive that much attention? The Dallas Cowboys roster has some very recognizable stars. Everyone knows Tony Romo, the quarterback returning from two major clavicle injuries. When healthy, Romo is among the best gun-slingers in football and his impact will be felt immensely if he can stay upright for the season. We know Ezekiel Elliott, the first-round pick that will become a star behind the offensive line. We know Dez Bryant, Jason Witten, and the other weapons on this roster that will draw softer coverages with the impact of the running...

Are The Cowboys Right In Not Pursuing Dwight Freeney, Or Just Being Stubborn About Their "Process"?

The team definitely is staying true to their philosophy, but is it the right move to take with the concerns about the pass rush? The Dallas Cowboys have been on a youth movement for several years. Although they have a few players who are getting positively ancient in NFL years, most notably Tony Romo and Jason Witten, those are players that have come up with the team. Lately they have shown a decided aversion to acquiring older free agents. The preference is for developing players they draft, and when they do sign outside players, they usually get ones that are a few years short of age 30....

Is Jameill Showers Forcing His Way Into The Competition To Become Tony Romo's Backup?

It is very, very, very early, but there are signs that Kellen Moore may not have the QB2 job locked up after all. Let us be perfectly clear. Right now, the Dallas Cowboys are running around in helmets and shorts, limiting contact, and above all trying to get through the OTAs and minicamp with no further injuries while getting the recovering players as close to 100% as possible. The media is only allowed to watch the practices on Wednesdays before minicamp, so the information flowing out is less than marginal. We are a long, long way from knowing the final shape of the roster. There is...

Cowboys News & Notes: Romo's Back For OTAs, But Leary Wants A Trade

How Big Of A Role Will Brice Butler Have For The Cowboys In 2016?

A return of Tony Romo and a full offseason with the team could pay huge dividends for Brice Butler and the Cowboys. When the 2016 NFL season rolls around, there will be a lot of eyes on the Dallas Cowboys. With key players like Tony Romo, Dez Bryant, and Orlando Scandrick returning to full health, the Cowboys could be a hot pick across the league for the team that will be most improved. Ezekiel Elliott coming to town to run behind this offensive line should make the Cowboys' offense much improved. In return, Dallas' defense will improve as the offense keeps the pressure on opposing...

Can The Cowboys Score 30 Points Per Game In 2016?

There are not that many teams in the NFL that can keep pace with an offense that consistently puts up 30+ points. The Cowboys had quite an offense in 2014, when Tony Romo, DeMarco Murray, and Dez Bryant were an unstoppable trio. Romo led the NFL in passer rating (113.2), completion percentage (69.9), and yards per attempt (8.5) despite fracturing bones in his back; Murray broke Emmitt Smith's franchise record for rushing yards in a season (1,845) and led the league by a spectacular margin; Bryant caught 88 passes for 1,320 yards and a league-high 16 touchdowns. Care to guess how...

Cowboys News & Notes: Who Steps Up At Defensive Tackle? Plus, Tony Romo Overrated?

Three interesting Cowboys to watch this offseason - Cory Castelan, The Landry Hat Do you remember when the interior line was crowded with mediocrity? Well, with players like Terrell McClain, Cedric Thornton, and David Irving - the Cowboys have some good options next to Tyrone Crawford. And now, throw in rookie Maliek Collins and suddenly the team has some good talent stuck in the middle. Collins is poised to have an impact rushing through the interior because of his credentials and the benefit of Rod Marinelli coaching but it will be hard to stand out in a crowded group of defensive...

Dallas Cowboys Aren't Only Team With An Aging Quarterback & No True Succession Plan

Some would think that after watching what the Cowboys went through in the absence of Tony Romo that getting a guy behind the guy has become the utmost importance. Think again. Here’s a jarring stat from ESPN’s Kevin Seifert: 21 of the 62 quarterbacks selected between 2010 and 2014 were waived before the start of their third seasons. When the offseason started, perhaps the biggest question mark in the entire league was what the Cowboys were going to do with the fourth-overall pick. For the early part of the draft process, until the two big trades happened, just about every pundit was...

Cowboys News: Dallas Returning To Power Football? Plus Jerry Jones Has Demands For Vegas Team

There are also a lot of potential camp battles coming. But one player you can count on to show up is Tony Romo. Titans, Cowboys, Rams returning to power football - NFL.com Chris Wesseling presents a very well-reasoned argument for how the Dallas Cowboys are one of the teams trying to zig while the rest of the league zags. With most of the NFL focused on the passing game, and therefore building their defense to stop the pass, they have a vulnerability that the Cowboys were able to exploit in 2014, and they clearly hope to duplicate the formula this year, only better. The drafting of Ezekiel...

Why The Cowboys Backup QB Situation Is Not As Bad As You Think

The Dallas Cowboys famously crumbled to dust last season when they lost quarterback Tony Romo for most of the season. The had other injuries, and other holes on the roster that didn't help, but the drop-off from Romo to the backup quarterbacks was basically 90% of the problem. The trio of Brandon Weeden, Matt Cassel and Kellen Moore combined to win exactly one game that any of the three actually started. Naturally, this lead to an offseaon where finding a proper backup quarterback for the Cowboys was paramount. Either grabbing a proven veteran or drafting Romo's heir-apparent with a high...
