Through two games, the importance of Travis Frederick has become very clear

Through two games, the importance of Travis Frederick has become very clear

The Bearded One is great, but perhaps we’ve been sleeping on just how valuable he is to the team. Stop me if you’ve heard this before: the Cowboys offensive line is absolutely dominant. It’s been a common refrain in recent years, and the trio that have anchored this impressive unit consisted of Tyron Smith, arguably the best left tackle in the NFL, Zack Martin, arguably the best guard in the NFL, and Travis Frederick, arguably the best center in the NFL. For all the hype given to these three, it seems that Smith and Martin are usually the ones garnering the majority of the praise,...

Zack Martin: Something feels different about Ezekiel Elliott this season; 'I think he's ready for a big year'

FRISCO -- Zack Martin can't identify exactly what it is, but the All-Pro right guard has seen a different Ezekiel Elliott since the start of training camp."Just the way he's running, the way he's approaching every day," Martin said. "Something just feels different. I think he's ready for a big year."Elliott did not play in any of Dallas' four preseason games. The plan all along has been to have Elliott healthy and ready for a significant workload beginning Sunday at Carolina."He's always been a hardworker, but it's just something different about this year," Martin said. "He's coming each day,...

Cowboys vs. Panthers Week 1: Panthers offensive linemen getting healthy but will they play?

Cowboys vs. Panthers Week 1: Panthers offensive linemen getting healthy but will they play?

The Panthers offensive line has had a rough offseason. The Dallas Cowboys have had a couple of scares along the offensive line this preseason. One turned out to be minor (Zack Martin’s knee), the other is still uncertain (Travis Frederick being diagnosed with Guillain-Barre Syndrome). The Cowboys opponent in the first week of the regular season, the Carolina Panthers, have really had a tough time along their offensive line. Right tackle Daryl Williams hurt his knee as did left guard Amini Silatolu. Additionally, left tackle Matt Kalil had to go on IR. While Kalil will obviously be out...

Cowboys waive G Kadeem Edwards and DT Brian Price to make room for new arrivals

Cowboys waive G Kadeem Edwards and DT Brian Price to make room for new arrivals

Cowboys making moves on 53-man roster. Earlier today the Cowboys claimed two players off of the waiver wire. In order to add center Adam Redmond and defensive back Ibraheim Campbell they needed to create some room on the 53-man roster. They did that by releasing a couple of players this afternoon. Guard Kadeem Edwards and defensive tackle Brian Price were let go. Edwards was a fifth-round pick of the Bucs way back in 2014. He bounced around until landing with the Cowboys practice squad in 2016. He was used extensively in preseason as a guard because of Zack Martin being out with his knee...

Cowboys OL Zack Martin back at practice after injury scare in second preseason game

He’s back! Deep breaths. It was less than two weeks ago that Zack Martin was down on the field and looked to be in serious pain against the Cincinnati Bengals. At the time, many thought Martin has just torn his ACL, or done some serious damage to his knee/ankle. The scare sent Cowboys Nation into a panic combined with learning that Travis Frederick could miss significant time due to being diagnosed with Guillain-Barre syndrome. Just nine days after finding out that his injury was a hyperextended knee, not an ACL, Martin was back at Tuesday’s practice. It has been reported that Martin...

Don’t let Lance Lenoir’s muffed punts prohibit him from making your 53-man roster

Relax. Special teams count. The preseason counts. The dress rehearsal is important. All of these are true. The Dallas Cowboys lost quite handily to the Arizona Cardinals in their dress rehearsal, but it was a contest that they knowingly played without guys like Dak Prescott, Ezekiel Elliott, Tyron Smith, Travis Frederick, and Zack Martin. Absences by such key figures may help us rationalize what the game means in its total context, but they don’t necessarily excuse everyone else who had to play in it. The preseason may feel like a bore but the reality is that it’s still where roster...

Why the Cowboys offense failed miserably against the Cardinals

Why the Cowboys offense failed miserably against the Cardinals

Let’s dig deep to see what happened. The Dallas Cowboys offense was pitiful on Sunday night against the Cardinals, only putting up three points on a last-second field goal. The question, then, is why was it so bad? The obvious answer is they played the game without Dak Prescott, Ezekiel Elliott, Tyron Smith, Zack Martin and Travis Frederick. That’s your five best players on offense, so we’re starting with a handicap already. Four of them should be on the field for the season-opener. Still, you would expect the Cowboys mix of backups and starters on offense to perform better than they...

5 takeaways from the Cowboys' 27-3 preseason loss to Cardinals: Will Cooper Rush remain the backup quarterback?

ARLINGTON -- Thankfully that's over. Most were expecting this to be the Cowboys' most entertaining preseason game. That's usually the case with the third preseason game. It's supposed to be the dress rehearsal for the regular season!But Dak Prescott didn't play. Ezekiel Elliott, Sean Lee, Zack Martin and Tyron Smith didn't either.So this one actually looked more like the fourth and least watchable preseason game. Dallas turned the ball over eight times! Just imagine how bad it could get Thursday night in Houston.Anyway, here are my thoughts on Dallas' third consecutive preseason loss, 27-3 to...

The dress rehearsal game has arrived. Who will you be watching closely? The Dallas Cowboys will host the Arizona Cardinals tonight (NBC) in what is expected to be the “dress rehearsal” game. It will be our best chance to get a look at the starters before the regular season. It’s been a rough week for the Cowboys in terms of health as the team will be without two All-Pro offensive linemen, Travis Frederick and Zack Martin. Not only will the interior of the offensive line be missing, but the interior of the defense is still without Maliek Collins and David Irving. Second-year safety...
