Report: Cowboys doing homework on high-risk LB Daryl Washington

The Dallas Cowboys always seem to be willing to give high-risk players another chance. Jerry Jones and Co. are at it again, reportedly doing “homework” on recently reinstated linebacker Daryl Washington, who missed three years due to off-field issues. Washington was suspended indefinitely for repeated violations of the NFL’s substance abuse policy. He hasn’t played since the 2013 season. But that’s not the biggest reason the Cowboys should avoid signing Washington. In addition to...

Cowboys Backup QB Situation Shouldn’t be a Concern for Fans

Throughout this offseason, Cowboys fans, writers, and bloggers have talked about how a backup QB is a need for America’s Team. We are set with what looks to be a new franchise quarterback in the form of Dak Prescott, but are we content with Kellen Moore backing him up? A backup QB is not a player who will take your team to the Super Bowl if the starter is injured. We forget this sometimes. Guys like Colin Kaepernick being available gets our attention. Backup quarterbacks study the...

Report: Cowboys David Irving Facing 4-Game Suspension For Failed Drug Test

Just what the Cowboys didn’t need, a possible issue with their defensive line.

It seems like every year the Cowboys head into the season with a key defensive end missing time due to a suspension. In 2014, it was Greg Hardy who missed the first four games of the season. Last year, DeMarcus Lawrence had to sit out the first four games. And of course, there is the enigma of Randy Gregory who has missed significant time due to multiple failed drug tests.

And this year, the Cowboys might have...

Why The Cowboys Explosive Offense Will Lead Them To The Super Bowl

While the defense is set to make some improvements this season, it will be the boost from the offense that will lead this team to the big stage.

Everyone is worried about the defense. With the way the loss went down against the Green Bay Packers, it’s easy to see why fans keep stressing over it. Aaron Rodgers led his team to touchdowns on their first three possessions of the game. Boom, just like that, the Packers had 21 points. And even after the Cowboys defense started making stops, the...
