We’re just a few short days away from the Dallas Cowboys arriving in Oxnard, California for 2019’s version of training camp. The offseason is often long and unforgiving but, in my own personal opinion, this one seems to have flown by. Maybe that’s only because we’re here now.

What’s the best route to a coaching gig in Dallas? Being a former player.

Most of us are realistic enough to know that we never had a chance of being an NFL football player. But a lot of us think we may have some Mike Leach in us, and could be a coach.

There are few things that internet sports fans love to discuss as much as they do the value of running backs in today’s NFL.
