Cowboys Poll: Which slot cornerback do you prefer?

Cowboys Poll: Which slot cornerback do you prefer?

The last two years and two games have shown us plenty of both. Who do you prefer? One of the more high profile position battles through training camp and preseason was between Anthony Brown and Jourdan Lewis for the starting slot cornerback job in nickel packages. There was a lot to consider, as both corners had seen their fair share of impressive play in the past. Brown was a sixth round pick in 2016 and, due to injuries, was thrown into starting duties early on. He didn’t disappoint, and quickly became their full time starter with how well he performed. Entering the 2017 season, the...

Cowboys Poll: How did Scott Linehan do against the Giants?

Cowboys Poll: How did Scott Linehan do against the Giants?

Linehan made some adjustments from week one to two. How good were they? After an abysmal offensive performance in Week 1, offensive coordinator Scott Linehan was one of the people who took the most abuse for it. There was some debate over how much of it was the play-calling by Linehan and how much blame belonged to the players for not executing. In last week’s poll, the vote-leader was that both Linehan and the players were responsible. Well, there were some obvious changes made in the play-calling, and execution was much better, too. After being criticized for not going deep at all,...

Don’t look now, but the Cowboys have a top five defense so far

Don’t look now, but the Cowboys have a top five defense so far

The defense is starting to look like the best part of this team. It might be time to check the doomsday clock because this defense looks that good. Through two games, the Dallas defense has limited their opponents to 29 total points and only given up an average of 274 yards each game. That’s good for the fourth-best overall defense in the league. In addition to that, the passing defense has significantly improved, which can largely be chalked up to new defensive backs coach Kris Richard. The secondary has allowed 366 passing yards over these two games, fifth-fewest in the NFL, and...

Cowboys News: Brice Butler returns, Cowboys make roster moves

Cowboys News: Brice Butler returns, Cowboys make roster moves

Get your news o’ the day for the Cowboys. Brice Butler returns as Cowboys add seventh wide receiver - Todd Archer, ESPNAfter some speculation, Brice Butler has returned to the Dallas Cowboys. The receiver made it official on Tuesday, and in order to clear a roster spot for him, the Cowboys did not cut another receiver. This means the team is going with seven wide receivers, an unusually high amount. When asked why the Cowboys potentially needed a seventh receiver, coach Jason Garrett said Monday: “Just to be deeper there. If he’s available, he’s someone we like. He’s done some...

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,...

Five plays the shaped the Cowboys game against the New York Giants

Now that’s more like it! Which five plays were the most important? The Cowboys offense rebounded in a big way, scoring enough points to enjoy a defense that was stout for roughly 3.75 quarters of the game. In the end, Dallas walked out with a 20-13 win that put them in first place in the NFC East after both Philadelphia and Washington lost earlier in the day. It was a convincing win despite the close score, and here are five plays that defined the game. Dak bombs it to Tavon Austin for a 64-yard touchdown The Cowboys received the opening kickoff and sent out an offense that needed to...

Cowboys Poll: What looks most promising on this defense?

Cowboys Poll: What looks most promising on this defense?

One of the few positives was the defense, so what looked best? Lost in all the talk about the putrid offense from last Sunday is the fact that this defense limited the Panthers to just 16 points. With weapons like Cam Newton, Christian McCaffrey, Torrey Smith, and Devin Funchess, this offense has the ability to put up points in many different ways, so containing this unit was a positive. Perhaps the two worst parts of the defensive performance were all of Sean Lee’s missed tackles and the injury to Randy Gregory. Even then, the secondary was everywhere, rarely giving up any big passes as...

Cowboys Poll: Who do you blame for the disappointing offense?

Cowboys Poll: Who do you blame for the disappointing offense?

There’s plenty of blame to go around. Who bares the brunt of it? The Cowboys’ season opener in Carolina came and went, and Dallas left the field with a 16-8 loss. The main talking point around the game was how terrible the Cowboys’ offense was. Naturally, the losses of Dez Bryant and Jason Witten were expected to present an adjustment period for the passing game, and Travis Frederick’s absence leaves a big, bearded hole in the offensive line no matter how well Joe Looney may have played. The Cowboys still have a lot of offensive weapons, though, the biggest being Ezekiel Elliott....

Cowboys News: Jerry Jones thinks Randy Gregory is playing on Sunday if healthy

Plus, what’s the most recent shade Dez Bryant is throwing? Jerry Jones says Randy Gregory will play against Giants, if healthy, no NFL concerns - Clarence Hill Jr., Star Telegram Randy Gregory had some injury issues in the game last Sunday, and then there were rumors about a substance-related relapse that could lead to another suspension. According to Jerry Jones, that isn’t happening; at least not yet. “Just think that he’ll be, absent any issues with his health, I think he’ll be on the field and have no reason to think that he won’t,” Jones said. “I don’t where the...

Five plays that shaped the Cowboys game against the Carolina Panthers

Five plays that shaped the Cowboys game against the Carolina Panthers

In a game that’s best if forgotten, what were the five most important plays? Well, at least that’s over. The Cowboys went into Charlotte to kick off their season and came out completely flat, especially on offense, and lost 16-8. There wasn’t a lot to like about the way Dallas played, and the Panthers didn’t look particularly great either, but here are five plays that shaped the game. DeMarcus Lawrence recovers a fumble in goal line stand For how ugly the offense made things look, the defense certainly showed up. Carolina was driving on their first offensive possession of the game,...

John Breech of CBS Sports seems to think Dallas will do just fine.

Scouting report for new Cowboys offensive lineman Parker Ehinger

Scouting report for new Cowboys offensive lineman Parker Ehinger

The Cowboys traded for Chiefs offensive lineman Parker Ehinger. What did they get? The Cowboys raised some eyebrows on Thursday when they traded undrafted cornerback Charvarius Ward to Kansas City for offensive lineman Parker Ehinger (pronounced EIN-ger). Dallas needed some depth at offensive line with Travis Frederick’s uncertain status, so what exactly did they get in Ehinger? To start off, Ehinger played football at University of Cincinnati, starting all four years. In his freshman year he was the right tackle, but moved to right guard the next two years before assuming the left...
