Philly writer says Jerry Jones should thank Eagles’ fans for putting him in NFL Hall of Fame

Philly writer says Jerry Jones should thank Eagles’ fans for putting him in NFL Hall of Fame

Well, this is a new one, Philly writer believes that Jerry Jones should thank Eagles fans for his Hall of Fame bid? Mike Sielski of the Philadelphia Inquirer opined that Jerry Jones should thank the rabid, unrivaled, Eagles fans for him becoming the 307th member of the Pro Football Hall of Fame: “If it seemed strange and premature for Jones to be inducted into the Hall —he isn’t going anywhere, and the Cowboys have reached the playoffs just nine times since last winning the Super Bowl 21 years ago — his inclusion in this year’s class was now perfectly understandable. The disdain,...

There’s no need to overreact about Dez Bryant being late for a conditioning test

There’s no need to overreact about Dez Bryant being late for a conditioning test

Dez Bryant was late showing up today at the Star, but it’s not really a thing. It’s been a long week for Dallas Cowboys fans, what with the Ezekiel Elliott drama and Lucky Whitehead’s dog being kidnapped. The tension is high, and on Friday NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport exponentially increased it for some folks when he reported that Dez Bryant was three hours late for a conditioning test. Dez Bryant spent last night in Lufkin buying BBQ for his fans, but showed up 3 hrs late today, sources say. He missed his conditioning run.— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) July 21, 2017 Thankfully NFL...

Former Steeler/NFL analyst Ike Taylor says Cowboys built to withstand distractions

Former Steeler/NFL analyst Ike Taylor says Cowboys built to withstand distractions

A former Steelers player is defending the Cowboys? What’s up with that? On Wednesday’s episode of NFL Total Access, a former Steelers defender came to defend the Dallas Cowboys amidst all the “distraction” brought upon this week with star running back Ezekiel Elliott. In a short discussion with former Patriots’ player Willie McGinest, they answered a question about Elliott’s perceived antics - is it a distraction to the team and would it be detrimental to their plans for 2017. Ike Taylor doesn’t really believe it’s going to affect the Cowboys season goals. To paraphrase his...

If you could attend only one Dallas Cowboys game this season ...

... which one would it be? Here's a simple question for you today: If you could attend only one Cowboys game this year, which one would it be? Some of you may attend more than one game this season, many of you won't be able to attend a single game, so we're keeping this a hypothetical question. And while we're on the topic of hypotheticals, playoff games don't count and neither does the Super Bowl. So if you were getting ready to type "The Super Bowl sukkaz!!!", forget it. So which game will it be for you? Do you prefer a home game or an away game that's perhaps closer to where you...

Surprising names among Cowboys' most productive defenders in 2016

Surprising names among Cowboys' most productive defenders in 2016

Using a production points system, we look at the most productive defenders on a per-snap basis - with surprising results. We know that the Cowboys use a production points system to grade their defensive players. A production points system awards a certain number of points for each defensive play like a tackle, a sack, an interception or a defensive score. In November 2013, Jason Garrett praised Kyle Wilber's performance after the 24-21 win over the Giants because Wilber had totaled 24 production points in 25 plays. After the regular-season finale against the Redskins in 2014, Garrett...

Jason Garrett saw potential with Dak Prescott from the very beginning

Jason Garrett saw potential with Dak Prescott from the very beginning

We’ve attributed a lot of Dak Prescott’s success to Jason Garrett which makes sense considering Red Ball had a Dak plan in place from the jump. On Wednesday the Dallas Cowboys did something ridiculously awesome and aired a documentary about Dak Prescott (Dakumentary!) on their Periscope, Facebook Live, and YouTube feeds. It needs to be understood how brilliant this is, but we’ll move on. The 41-minute film is well worth your time, but there’s a moment just past the middle that will really catch your attention. It’s an exchange never before seen by Cowboys fans between Jerry Jones...

Question of the day: Which Cowboys players would you choose to start a franchise with?

A recent all-time draft by The MMQB featured 17 Cowboys greats. Would you start a franchise with one of them? Earlier this week, Peter King released the MMQB All-Time Draft.
