Dallas Cowboys 53-man roster prediction after first roster cutdown and week one of preseason

Dallas Cowboys 53-man roster prediction after first roster cutdown and week one of preseason

Ron Chenoy-USA TODAY Sports Here’s a Cowboys’ 53-man roster prediction after first roster cutdowns and week one of preseason. The Cowboys week one of preseason did not start out as planned after falling to 0-1. While there’s plenty of questions surrounding the Cowboys after their loss to the Denver Broncos, cutting their roster from 90 to 85 is the number one priority. The team announced that they have already made those five moves by saying goodbye to CB Kyron Brown, FB Ryan Nall, TE Ian Bunting, WR Ty Fryfogle, and DT Austin Faoliu. The team will have another...

5 random roster questions after the Cowboys 17-7 loss to the Broncos

5 random roster questions after the Cowboys 17-7 loss to the Broncos

It was a rough outing for Wright, but does his work in practice offset things? | Ron Chenoy-USA TODAY Sports Evaluating the back end of the roster is what preseason is all about. More than ever, NFL preseason games have become more about evaluating the bottom half of the roster to figure out who makes the team as backups to the known starters. That is why the score of the Dallas Cowboys’ loss to the Denver Broncos is somewhat meaningless. It also may be part of Mike McCarthy’s lack of concern about all those penalties, although he seems to be handling that...

Standouts and struggling players from the first preseason game: Second-year CBs disappoint

Standouts and struggling players from the first preseason game: Second-year CBs disappoint

Photo by C. Morgan Engel/ It wasn’t all bad, but the list of struggling Cowboys players is not short. For the first time in 209 days, the Dallas Cowboys took the field again. That means that last year’s team had 5,016 hours to improve on a 12-5 season and fix up the areas that led to a first-round exit. But it took three hours for the Cowboys to remind fans what that all-to-familiar emotion of disappointment feels like. This is still the preseason. That loss will not show up on the final record, the seven total points scored will not be used as a tiebreaker, and...

The Cowboys need to have their backup QB situation in order, and right now it doesn’t appear they do

The Cowboys need to have their backup QB situation in order, and right now it doesn’t appear they do

Jason Parkhurst-USA TODAY Sports The Cowboys must be able to survive if they are without Dak Prescott for a few games. November 26th, 2015 October 11th, 2020 Those two days mark the lowest of lows over the last decade for many fans of the Dallas Cowboys as they represent the day the team lost their starting quarterback for the season. The departures of Tony Romo and Dak Prescott completely took the air out of the sail as fans quickly came to terms that the team had no chance of doing anything special. Injuries to quarterbacks happen. It’s unfortunate when it’s...

6 free agent tackle options for Cowboys to challenge Josh Ball

6 free agent tackle options for Cowboys to challenge Josh Ball

Photo by Maddie Meyer/ The Cowboys need more options at swing tackle. The Cowboys have a swing tackle problem. The swing tackle is, of course, an especially important position in Dallas considering that Tyron Smith hasn’t played a full season since 2015. Furthermore, the Cowboys haven’t had one player start every game at right tackle in a season since 2018. In previous years, the Cowboys have sought out veteran tackles with experience to fill that role, such as Ty Nsehke, Cameron Fleming, and Cameron Erving. This year, they opted for a battle between last year’s...

Cowboys news: Penalties remain story from Denver as team looks ahead to Chargers

Cowboys news: Penalties remain story from Denver as team looks ahead to Chargers

Ron Chenoy-USA TODAY Sports The latest and greatest Dallas Cowboys news. 17 penalty-game shows continuation of Cowboys’ undisciplined play under McCarthy - Todd Brock, The Cowboys Wire Whatever the Cowboys are doing to clean up penalties clearly isn’t working so far. The Cowboys were flagged 17 times against the Broncos, most in the NFL over the weekend’s worth of games. While it was admittedly a meaningless exhibition contest (and a couple calls were notably questionable), the 129 yards conceded on those flags are emblematic of a bigger problem that just...

The first preseason game highlighted how poorly the Cowboys handled tackle depth this offseason

Photo by Josh Lefkowitz/ Decisions made by the Cowboys in March have consequences come September. We are tossing and turning. The temperature is a little off, but we have checked in and turned the fan on to help us out. Sound machines offer a little bit of solace although we would have to get up to turn them on. Ultimately, we are here lying in a bed that we did not choose to make and are trying to figure out how to go to sleep. It wasn’t us who put these sheets on or left the night light in the perfect spot to annoy our vision. Yet here we are. Lying in it. The...

7 unexpected conclusions from Cowboys’ 17-7 preseason loss to the Broncos

7 unexpected conclusions from Cowboys’ 17-7 preseason loss to the Broncos

There is real depth at running back. | Photo by C. Morgan Engel/ We always see surprising things in the first game. One thing that we don’t value enough is how preseason football games can change our perceptions of players and entire teams. That is certainly true for me after the displeasing 17-7 loss suffered by the Dallas Cowboys at the hands of the Denver Broncos on Saturday. After writing the game recap and reviewing the game and other media coverage, several things are worthy of revision or discussion. The irony of the running back depth With Ezekiel Elliott and...

Cowboys roster move: Dallas Cowboys reportedly down to 85 players after moving on from five

Photo by Robin Alam/Icon Sportswire via This is the first step towards the final 53. By Tuesday afternoon teams around the National Football League have to be down to 85 players. It is a part of the way that things work this time of year and a first part of the process towards trimming down to 53 players on everyone’s final roster. While nothing is official until it is official the Cowboys are seemingly down to 85 players already as The Dallas Morning News reported on the five moves that they will be making in order to get down to where they have to. Cowboys must...

Cowboys show new faces, but more of the same in preseason loss at Denver

Photo by Jamie Schwaberow/ The Cowboys still have work to do cleaning up penalties after their first four quarters of the preseason. Saturday night in Denver was the first chance for the Dallas Cowboys to prove they’ve changed as a team, for better or worse, since their playoff loss to the 49ers. While the final score showed another loss, the preseason opener was all but an extension of the joint practice the Cowboys held against the Broncos earlier in the week. The better reminder of how last season ended were 17 penalties called on the Cowboys, a supposed point of...

Dak Prescott talks 2022 season, being a leader, goals for the year ... and getting tackled by ‘Real Housewives’ stars

Dak Prescott for DIRECTV campaign | DIRECTV QB1 sat down with us to chat about the upcoming season, and his role in DIRECTV’s new “Get Your TV Together” campaign. When it is all said and done, the 2022 season is going to come down to one thing for the Dallas Cowboys — and that is quarterback Dak Prescott. There is no more important player in football than your quarterback and the Cowboys have been fortunate to have Prescott under center for six years now. Time tends to fly that way. Recently, thanks to our friends at DIRECTV, we were fortunate enough to get to...

You know what they say, “everything is bigger in Texas,” and when it comes to the tailgating scene that definitely rings true.

New study shows the Cowboys have been hanging their quarterbacks out to dry

Photo by Tom Pennington/ Observers of the Cowboys won’t find this surprising. It’s not exactly a new concept that the Cowboys front office, led by Jerry and Stephen Jones, has done little to bolster their rosters and give the team a legitimate shot at winning a Super Bowl. It seems as if this talking point comes up every year, in one way or another, and often at critical junctures of the season. The younger Jones has often used a refrain of focusing on saving cap space in order to better surround their top talent with weapons, thereby creating a Super Bowl roster....

Mike McCarthy Reveals Why He Benched Cowboys Veteran Last Night - Andrew Gould, Sports Illustrated Like the fans who watched, McCarthy was fed up with the penalties.

One of them led McCarthy to bench Dante Fowler. The newly acquired edge-rusher got called for a personal foul when pushing an opposing player off...
