Cowboys Free Agent Signee Nolan Carroll Arrested For DWI

Cowboys Free Agent Signee Nolan Carroll Arrested For DWI

The Cowboys new free agent cornerback isn’t doing himself any favors with this incident. Nolan Carroll isn’t a fan favorite of many. After spending the last three seasons with the Philadelphia Eagles, there hasn’t been much to like about him. He’s been the enemy. But when the Cowboys signed him to a three-year, $10 million deal in March, it was time to change our tune. He’s one of the good guys now. However, that sentiment may be in question now as he’s already making news in Dallas. And not the good kind. Early Monday morning, Carroll was arrested for on a charge of suspicion...

Reports Of Dez Bryant’s Demise Have Been Greatly Exaggerated

Reports Of Dez Bryant’s Demise Have Been Greatly Exaggerated

Dez Bryant is still among the league’s elite, he just needs to stay on the field to prove it. The 2014 season was quite possibly the apex of Dez Bryant’s career to this point. He logged a career high 16 touchdowns, breaking the Cowboys record for most receiving touchdowns in a season, he made his first playoff appearance, nearly had a career high in yards, and was named First Team All-Pro for the first time. One might argue that the fact that it was a contract year had something to do with that performance, and there may be some truth to that, although statistically his production was...

Statistics Suggest Cowboys Ryan Switzer Could Have Two Punt Return TDs & Who They Should Come Against

Statistics Suggest Cowboys Ryan Switzer Could Have Two Punt Return TDs & Who They Should Come Against

Here are some numbers thrown at you to help get an idea as to what type of expectations we should have for rookie punt returner, Ryan Switzer. When Lucky Whitehead took the opening kickoff of the Cowboys first 2016 preseason game for a touchdown, many fans thought this was the year that the special teams unit turns it around. As it turns out, that would be the only kick return for a touchdown the Cowboys would have all season. It’s hard to replace what Dwayne Harris had given them in the return game and many people weren’t too hard on Whitehead the previous year during his rookie...

Dak Doubters Should Judge Dak Prescott By What He’s Already Shown

Dak Doubters Should Judge Dak Prescott By What He’s Already Shown

There is a growing populous of folks calling for Dak to fail, what do the numbers say though? Though Dak Prescott is in his second offseason program, in reality, it’s his first as the new face of the Dallas Cowboys’ franchise. Prescott is coming off a rookie season that bested every rookie season before it statistically for quarterbacks. It’s not easy to take over the reins from a four-time Pro Bowler like Tony Romo that was every bit of a champion for the city of Dallas, though he came short of that ultimate goal. Dak Prescott did win Rookie of the Year despite having to compete...

Cowboys Only Have Themselves To Blame For All Their Suspended Players

Cowboys Only Have Themselves To Blame For All Their Suspended Players

With a locker room that is supposed to be so great, why do the Cowboys keep having players who get suspended? When news broke about a possible suspension of Cowboys defensive lineman, David Irving, you could hear the chatter of Cowboys Nation, “here we go again!” Like a broken record, Dallas is looking at having another player miss some football games. Some fans are questioning the leadership on the team, suggesting that Cowboys coach Jason Garrett is too soft and isn’t delivering the message needed to steer his players away from trouble. Others are saying that the Cowboys bring this...

Poll: Who Will Be The New NFC Playoff Teams In 2017?

Poll: Who Will Be The New NFC Playoff Teams In 2017?

Who are this year's NFC candidates to make the playoffs after sitting at home last January? On Friday, we asked you which 2016 playoff teams you thought would not make it back to the playoffs in 2017, and the voting was pretty conclusive, at least at the time I'm writing this. The Lions (66% of the votes) and the Giants (17%) were the favorites to miss the playoffs this year. Which brings us to our question of the day: Which new teams do you expect to make the playoffs for the NFC this season? The following ten teams are candidates to make the playoffs in 2017 after failing to make the...

Poll: Which 2016 NFC Playoff Teams Won't Make The 2017 NFC Playoffs?

Poll: Which 2016 NFC Playoff Teams Won't Make The 2017 NFC Playoffs?

In the parity-driven NFL, about half the playoff teams churn every year. This means that some of last year's much-hyped playoff teams are in for a rude awakening in 2017. Since the league moved to a 12-team playoff format in 1990, an average of about six new teams made the playoffs every year. This long history of churn among NFL teams means that it's highly probable that five or six teams that made the playoffs in 2016 will miss the playoffs in 2017. Six teams make the playoffs in the NFC every year, and it's a virtual certainty that some of last year's playoff teams will stumble. Last...

Some things that would be interesting to see. OTAs are mostly just fun for football junkies, and if you are reading this, there is a good chance that description applies to you - like it does to me. We watch social media for every shred of information about what the Dallas Cowboys are doing as they get in the only practices they will have before the long drought leading up to training camp. Some things were pretty predictable coming in, such as the nervous watching of everything Jaylon Smith does, and the flair rookie Ryan Switzer has already demonstrated.

Passing Plus-Minus: More Evidence Of Dak Prescott’s Value To The Dallas Cowboys

Passing Plus-Minus: More Evidence Of Dak Prescott’s Value To The Dallas Cowboys

“They” keep saying Dak is due a slump, but things like data and facts continue to support avoiding that. The Dallas Cowboys are into their OTAs and trying to answer a lot of questions.

Now the only thing to find out is if he can continue to thrive. So far, all reports from the staff and Dak himself are that he has improved physically. And while every team thinks they are doing great in OTAs, nothing has happened to...

Are The Cowboys Looking To Fix Their Pass Rush From The Inside?

Are The Cowboys Looking To Fix Their Pass Rush From The Inside?

The edge guys get all the glory, but the key to a successful pass rush is getting pressure from the inside. Much of the pre- and post-draft talk in Dallas this year revolved around edge rushers. Prior to the draft, the discussion was about which edge rushers the Cowboys should take, and after the draft a lot of the discussion was about which edge rusher the Cowboys should have taken. The Cowboys drafted Taco Charlton with their first pick in the 2017 NFL draft, brought in former third-round pick Damontre Moore in free agency, and have high hopes for their noticeably slimmed down red-shirt...
