Why the Dallas Cowboys need to say no to most trade offers before the trade deadline

Why the Dallas Cowboys need to say no to most trade offers before the trade deadline

Photo by Kevork Djansezian/ Based on Jerry Jones comments, it’s possible that moves could be made by the Cowboys front office. It’s that time of year when teams looking to make a run are in the mood to start wheeling and dealing. The Dallas Cowboys are in a position where they could decide to move on from certain players because they have someone coming back from injury or suspension that can take over, while at the same time bolstering their roster at positions of need. Cowboys owner Jerry Jones alluded to this while talking on 105.3 The Fan. “Open for business...

McCarthy’s “across the hall” meetings need to focus on cleaning up these two problems for the Cowboys

Photo by Mitchell Leff/ Things are going well, but they could be going better for the Cowboys. The Dallas Cowboys will come out of their bye week with one of the top records in the NFL thanks to a five-game winning streak. It’s hard not to be pleased with how well this team is playing, but that doesn’t mean everything is a bed of roses for America’s Team. In fact, there are a lot of areas the team could use improvement. I mean, what team doesn’t have that? But if this team plans on doing some real damage in January, it would behoove them to get some things...

Update on the status of Cowboys QB Dak Prescott’s calf injury for Vikings game

Update on the status of Cowboys QB Dak Prescott’s calf injury for Vikings game

Photo by Tom Pennington/ The Cowboys QB will be under watchful eyes this week. The Dallas Cowboys have been hopeful this past week that quarterback Dak Prescott will be able to play in Week 8 versus the Minnesota Vikings. Prescott hurt his calf on the last play of their win over the New England Patriots and everyone, including Prescott, has been putting a positive spin on his injury even after an MRI revealed a mild calf strain. The bye week certainly was fortunately timed with regards to Prescott’s calf. On Friday, Jerry Jones, who is not a real doctor but did...

The three biggest unsung heroes of the Cowboys season so far

In order to reach 5-1, you can bet a lot of different players have had to contribute to the overall success. But while names like Prescott, Elliott, Lamb, Parsons, and Diggs might be easier to ID, they aren’t the only ones who deserve a hand for their...

Get better against the run The game against New England was the first time this season the Dallas defense surrendered 100 yards to a running back. Leading up to Week 6, the Cowboys had the second-fewest rushing attempts against them. Dallas was finally challenged in the running game, and they weren’t up to the task. The numbers will...

Looking at the Dallas Cowboys remaining schedule by offensive and defensive EPA disparity at Week 7

Photo by Rich Graessle/Icon Sportswire via Offense continues to dominate for the Cowboys. Offense is king in today’s NFL. As a result of the hierarchy that exists in modern day football, teams that have elite offenses generally tend to have more success. Thankfully for all of us, this is something that the Dallas Cowboys seem to understand and have invested in. They are now reaping the benefits. Of course, there is the Cowboys defense that is chipping in and helping out which has made everything work together. From a composite standpoint, Dallas has one of the best...

Mike McCarthy deserves more credit for how much he’s evolved with the Cowboys

Mike McCarthy deserves more credit for how much he’s evolved with the Cowboys

Photo by Wesley Hitt/ Few coaches change themselves as much as Mike McCarthy has. Football coaches rarely deviate from their own established strategies. It’s often why formerly successful coaches struggle to win years later. For example, Monte Kiffin and Rod Marinelli were once the most brilliant defensive masterminds in the NFL. Their Tampa 2 defense had almost single-handedly won the Buccaneers a Super Bowl. But when the Cowboys brought in the duo nearly a full decade later, it quickly became apparent that the game had passed them by. Ultimately, a lack of evolution...

Cowboys point/counterpoint: Talent wins, but so does coaching

I mean, how can you give one more credit than the other? | Photo by Richard Rodriguez/ Looking for answers; is it coaching or talent that is more important to the Cowboys 5-1 start? What a difference a year makes. Last season at this time, as the Dallas Cowboys were spiraling out of control, we asked with dismay how it could have all gone so wrong. Now we are in the bye week and the Cowboys sport a 5-1 record and have as many wins as the rest of the NFC East combined. They are threatening to have the division sewn up by Thanksgiving at this rate, and the games so far...
