Projecting The Cowboys 46-Man Game Day Roster vs. The Giants

A look at who you may see against the Giants in just over 11 weeks.

With 2017’s organized team activities and minicamp out of the way, and training camp still over a month away, the long lull of the NFL offseason is here. There are no more free agency or draft possibilities to obsess over, there are no OTA reports to look forward to, there is just the wait. In the spirit of that wait let’s put a slight spin on the 53-man roster projections that so often bounce around at this time of year...

Cowboys 2017 Training Camp Dates and Location Announced

In exactly one month, the Dallas Cowboys will be opening their 2017 training camp from Oxnard, California once again – on a quest for Super Bowl LII that will begin in the summer heat of California, followed by an extra preseason game in August 3rd’s Hall of Fame game, and end with open practices at The Star over the course of the final two preseason weeks. The NFL made Dallas’ July 22nd training camp start date official yesterday, although this date will only mark the Cowboys’...

Dallas Cowboys: Predicting Team Captains For The 2017 Season

Every year before the upcoming season officially kicks off, the Dallas Cowboys get together as a team and cast their votes for the season’s team captains. The Cowboys usually have five team captains: two on offense, two on defense, and one special-teams player. With things being so slow this time year in the NFL, I decided to try to predict who the 2017 Dallas Cowboys team captains will be. In 2016 the captains were Jason Witten, Travis Frederick, Sean Lee, Barry Church, and Dan...

A Statistical Look At The Opposing Defenses On The Cowboys 2017 Schedule

Based on last year’s statistics, what can the Cowboys learn about the defenses they’ll face in 2017? When you go from worst to first like the Dallas Cowboys did in 2016, you will wind up with a first-place schedule. Depending on where you look, the Cowboys strength of schedule is between 10th (traditional win/loss calculations) and 13th (FPI uses home/away, distance traveled, time between games, etc). Preferably, FPI will be our guide due to the other parameters they use to make their...

Cowboys’ Down-Roster Battles: Who Will Be The Last Wide Receiver To Make The Roster?

Training camp practices start July 24th. While a lot of the team is set, there should be some heavy competition for those last slots. We’re doing a 10-part series to preview what those battles might look like.

The first place to look if you are thinking about Cowboys’ roster battles is our own 2017 Dallas Cowboys Interactive Roster Builder. This handy tool is kept up to date by OCC, and is well worth the visit because it shows that roster battles aren’t always within position groups,...

Ranking The Cowboys Roster 61-70: Which Players Are On The Outside?

Some players have their work cut out for them if they are going to make the Cowboys 53-man roster.

The five week period before training camp starts up will mean there’s going to be a lot of time where no football is happening. That’s depressing. So what better time to do a complete ranking of the Cowboys roster. Keep in mind, a lot of this will change once things get rolling again. When camp begins, we will continue to track the progress and we’ll be using these arrows to show who’s...

Cowboys Expansion Draft: Protecting America’s Team’s Future

Last night, the National Hockey League held their expansion draft to welcome their 31st franchise – the Vegas Golden Knights. With football always on my mind, I immediately started thinking of the Dallas Cowboys’ that are most important to this team’s future – as Vegas picked through every team’s roster to take players that were unprotected. Rookies and second-year players did not need additional protection by their clubs, meaning that in a hypothetical NFL expansion draft...

Cowboys’ Defense: Pre-Training Camp 53-Man Roster Prediction

Unfortunately, this is the time of year where things are really slow in the NFL, which is why I thought it would be the perfect time to share with all you my pre-training camp 53-man roster prediction for the Dallas Cowboys. Yesterday I shared with you my predictions for the Cowboys’ offense and also included the specialist, so today I will turn my attention to the defensive side of the ball. How the Cowboys’ defense performs in 2017 will go a long way with determining the amount of...

Cowboys News: Debate Rages About Whether Dak Prescott Is Overrated

And Jerry Jones, Hall of Fame reps get an audience with the Pope.

Dak Prescott hype getting out of control, as shown by NFL top 100 list - Frank Schwab, Yahoo Sports
There is a bit of consternation at the high ranking Dak Prescott received on the NFL top 100 list. But ironically, this objection reveals an important truth about the Cowboys and their future.

Prescott had a fine season, and it was a wonderful story for a fourth-round pick, but it’s hard to think he’d have ranked No. 14...

Why NFL.com Thinks Cowboys O-line Is Most Feared Position Group In The NFL

In 2011, the Cowboys set out on a path to construct the NFL's best offensive line, and it looks like they've succeeded.

In 2010, the most notable thing about the Cowboys' offensive line was its age. The 2010 starting line of Doug Free (26), Kyle Kosier (31), Andre Gurode (32), Leonard Davis (32), and Marc Colombo (31) totaled 152 combined years of age.

A few years ago, ESPN's John Clayton wrote about the "Theory of 150", explaining that if the combined age of your starting offensive line...

Teams Now Have A Year Of Film On Dak Prescott To Study - And It Still Won’t Matter

The evidence continues to build that there will be no sophomore slump for Dallas’ second-year quarterback, Dak Prescott.

It is a burning question for the Dallas Cowboys. Was the phenomenal debut of Dak Prescott a true sign of things to come, or was it a deceptive performance by an unknown quantity that will be nullified by wily defensive coordinators? The worry is that Prescott will fall into the dreaded “sophomore slump”. However, that may be as much a myth as anything.

How Tony Romo Helped Jason Witten Stay Focused Under New QB in 2016

Tony Romo to Jason Witten. You shouldn’t be able to read this without smiling and thinking of so many fond memories. After breaking into the NFL together back in 2003, the two became an unforgettable combo for 649 receptions and 37 touchdowns all with America’s Team. Witten has been the unrivaled professional in his worth ethic – one that will land him in Canton someday – for 15 years with the Cowboys, still going strong after being so influential to Romo’s development, along...
