Cowboys Defense: All About Getting Turnovers Like They Did In 2014

Recently the Dallas coach addressed the team's inability to get off the field by giving the rock back to the Cowboys offense. In 2014 the Dallas Cowboys defensive unit generated 31 turnovers. That translates into 31 times that they took away an opponent's opportunity to put points on the board and 31 additional opportunities for Tony Romo and the Dallas offense to put additional tallies on the scoreboard. It does not take a genius to figure out how a defensive performance like that can help a football team to finish the regular season with a 12-4 record. 2015 was a dramatically different...

Cowboys News & Notes: Ex-Cowboy DeMarcus Ware Gets A Super Bowl Ring, Tony Romo Talks Collarbone

Congrats to #94. Von Miller was voted the MVP of the Broncos Super Bowl win, but right behind him for the Denver defense was ex-Cowboy DeMarcus Ware.

Ware was always the consummate professional and one of the all-around good guys in the NFL, congrats to him on his Super Bowl victory. And while we're passing out accolades for the Denver defense, might as well throw some love to former Cowboys head coach Wade Phillips who did a great job of coordinating that unit. They dominated the...

Cowboys: Could Deji Olatoye Become A Bigger Contributor In 2016

Deji Olatoye came on towards the end of the season in 2015. The Cowboys have to improve their cornerback position over the offseason, but could Olatoye keep the coaching staff from wanting to use their money in free agency? The Dallas Cowboys are known for finding talent even when teams passed multiple times on a player. Since the start of the century, the Cowboys have found talent in the least likely of spots. Tony Romo truly is the perfect example of this. A little-known undrafted guy out of Eastern Illinois has turned into one of the most talented quarterbacks at the professional...

Dallas Cowboys Draft 2016: It's Not About Drafting A Quarterback, It's About The Right Quarterback

As a quarterback truther, I want to see the Cowboys make a decision sooner rather than later on Tony Romo's heir to the throne. However, it must be the right choice. Look, we all want the Cowboys to solve their issue at quarterback. This offseason has been and will continue to revolve around that very question. Whether the Cowboys decide to go out and sign a veteran, which they should, drafting a quarterback is the only thing that will suffice for some people. However, it's important to remember that it's not all about drafting a quarterback. It's about being right. The Dallas Cowboys must...

Can The Cowboys Win Without A Good Quarterback?

The Cowboys have relied too heavily on the arm of Tony Romo over the last decade. It’s time to win football games with some good ol’ fashioned defense.

And after going through the 2015 season, Cowboys fans have lived it.

It's a painful feeling and I don't like...

Cowboys Draft 2016: Three Targets For The Secondary

The Dallas Cowboys have neglected the safety positions over the past few years. Could this finally be the year where they make an upgrade at either one of the positions? The Dallas Cowboys' defense took a step back in 2015. Despite signs of improvement from guys who will have key roles in the future like Randy Gregory and Byron Jones, the Cowboys generated less pressure on the quarterback and they failed to get stops when it mattered most. Without Tony Romo, it was harder for Dallas to sustain drives on offense, which in turn kept the defense on the field for longer. The Cowboys will have...
