After the midseason tragedy, the Cowboys find their guy to move forward at strength and conditioning.

It is the time of year for the Dallas Cowboys to finalize their coaching staff which is something that we have seen them do since the season ended. There are a few new faces on the defensive side of the ball and just Wednesday morning it was announced that Aden Durde will be manning the defensive line in 2021. Another role was seemingly...

No NFL combine makes draft information scarce for fans

We won’t even get empty platitudes this year. | Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

Trying to figure out what the Cowboys are planning to do is so much harder without the clues we used to gather.

Last year, the NFL Combine was the last thing that went off more or less as scheduled before the entire offseason came to a halt for the league. It has always been a time that we watch closely. It doesn’t only offer a chance to see who may be better or worse than we thought based on the testing, the...

Cowboys 2021 free agent carousel: A look at the cornerbacks

Joseph Maiorana-USA TODAY Sports

Dallas has a slew of decisions to make regarding their upcoming free agents. As of now, no position has more expiring contracts than cornerback.

Offensive air-raid brigades have definitively become first-rate options for most of the NFL’s 32 franchises. Passing is now the name of the game for offensive attacks, and a sport that’s long been known as a battle of the ground-and-pound – predominantly reliant on bruising running backs for advantages – has...

Report: Dallas Cowboys to name Aden Durde as their new defensive line coach

There is a new defensive line coach in town for the Cowboys.

The Dallas Cowboys have shuffled around a few coaches following their disastrous 2020 campaign and they were both on the defensive side of the ball.

Defensive coordinator Mike Nolan was let go after one year of service with the club as was defensive line coach Jim Tomsula. The Cowboys landed a new coordinator a week ago in former Atlanta Falcons head coach Dan Quinn, brought in Joe Whitt to run...

Why having a quality veteran backup quarterback is unlikely for the Cowboys in 2021

It may be Dak or bust for the Cowboys in 2021.

You never fully know how important something is until you lose it. For the Dallas Cowboys, that single statement can define their 2020 season. The Cowboys lost their signal-caller Dak Prescott, and their hopes and aspirations left with him.

Thankfully for Dallas, their investment in a backup quarterback during the offseason paid off. As we all know, Andy Dalton started nine games, posting a record of 4-5 and...

Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

Cowboys shake up on their defensive staff continues.

The Dallas Cowboys have adjusted their coaching staff on defense this offseason. After a disastrous first year under defensive coordinator Mike Nolan, they said goodbye to him and found former Atlanta Falcons head coach Dan Quinn as a replacement.

One of the people that the team interviewed for their defensive coordinator position was actually Joe Whitt Jr., who wound up on staff anyway. The Cowboys hired Whitt...

Eagles interviewed Dallas Cowboys offensive coordinator Kellen Moore on Tuesday

We finally have confirmation of a Kellen Moore interview.

The last game that the Philadelphia Eagles played (seemingly) to a truly competitive degree was one where they took a drubbing from the Dallas Cowboys. America’s Team put up 37 points against the bad guys in the penultimate week of the regular season (the second year in a row in which Dallas dropped exactly 37 points against the Eagles in their home building) and the week after saw Philly all...

Changes to the 2021 NFL Combine put the pressure on Will McClay and scouts to perform

With the NFL Combine format change the Cowboys must trust their scout's input more than ever.

On the heels of the NFL announcing that there will be a change to the NFL Combine format this season, teams are going to be in for another year of guessing and trusting the tape on players like they did for the 2020 NFL Draft. This season, though, they will also have to deal with new challenges such as on-field workouts being conducted at pro days only, medical exams...

What ails this Cowboys defense?

It’s always a refreshing feeling to get a new coach. Good, bad, or indifferent, just the notion that big changes are coming is enough to get us fans excited about what lies ahead. The hire of new defensive coordinator Dan Quinn certainly seems like a good decision on the surface. Only time will tell if his tutelage will be what the doctor ordered to cure the Cowboys underperforming defense.

A division rival holds interest in the Cowboys special teams ace.

There are effectively only two head coach openings left in the NFL at the moment as the Houston Texans and Philadelphia Eagles are both still looking for someone to serve at the head of their franchises. It is expected that Dan Campbell, formerly of the Cowboys, will become the newest Detroit Lions head coach soon, but that remains unofficial. The Texans and Eagles are both organizations in the...

The Cowboys shuffle on their defensive coaching staff carries on.

Once the Cowboys season ended, the coaching carousel on defense began. Mike McCarthy, with some heavy input from the Jones family, parted ways with defensive coordinator Mike Nolan. Defensive line coach Jim Tomsula followed.

Dan Quinn was brought in to be the defensive coordinator and Joe Whitt Jr., who has past experience with both McCarthy and Quinn, assumed the role of...

Since the Cowboys hired Dan Quinn to be their new defensive coordinator, we’ve taken an an in-depth look at both the front seven and coverage schemes that Quinn uses, as well as the ones defensive passing game coordinator Joe Whitt Jr., primarily uses. Now comes the most important part: how well does the current roster fit that kind of scheme?

Help wanted: The Cowboys need an upgrade at a critical spot on their defense

Matthew Emmons-USA TODAY Sports

If Dan Quinn’s new defensive scheme is to work, the Cowboys desperately need help at one position.

As the Cowboys head into the offseason, Dan Quinn will bring his own style of defense to Dallas. This defense is not to unlike the defense the Cowboys ran previous to Mike Nolan, especially under Kris Richard. As has been laid out a few times on these pages, the Cowboys will be going to a Cover 3/Cover 1, single-high safety as their predominate coverage in the...

Yes, the Packers are doing quite well without him. That doesn’t mean that he was the real problem in Green Bay.

There are several reasons for this fanbase to be unhappy that the Green Bay Packers are going deep in the playoffs, after securing the number one seed in the NFC. Primarily because it isn’t the Dallas Cowboys, of course. We also have a bit of an aversion to seeing Aaron Rodgers doing so well after the times he crushed our own playoff runs....
