The NFL and NFLPA have to work out salary cap contingencies. Those could directly impact Dallas and their quarterback.

We are weary of the endless reports on the contract stalemate between the Dallas Cowboys and franchise quarterback Dak Prescott. Rest assured, this is not another breakdown of rumors about offers and demands, or one more opinion on what should be done by whom to get things moving. This is about...

Keep your eye on these three UDFAs when making your Cowboys roster predictions.

Building a competitive roster is a year-round process. The most common ways to find productive players that can elevate a playoff contender into a championship contender are often through trade, free agency, or the early rounds of the draft.

Dallas made a move to acquire Amari Cooper through a trade during the 2018 season, and that move helped propel the...

Scouts Rank NFC East RBs: It’s Zeke Over Barkley, Sanders & AD - Mike Fisher, Cowboy Maven

Ezekiel Elliott has been one of the most dominant running backs in the NFL since he came into the league, but has stiff competition from other big names like Saquon Barkley. According to anonymous NFL scouts, Zeke is still the best in the NFC East though.

The Dallas Cowboys will hold training camp in Frisco, TX as opposed to Oxnard, CA

Things are staying local for the Cowboys.

The Dallas Cowboys have hosted training camp in Oxnard, California for some time now. Obviously the weather on the west coast is ideal throughout two-a-days as football teams try to install how they will work for the upcoming season. Texas is great, but it’s hot.

Of course the Cowboys can train indoors inside of the Lone Star State as their world headquarters at The Star in Frisco have both indoor and outdoor...

Who will lead the Cowboys in receiving categories for the 2020 season?

The Cowboys have some weapons when it comes to catching the ball.

Ever since the addition of wide receiver CeeDee Lamb in the draft, there has been a lot of discussion about the Cowboys trio of receivers, and the offense overall. #TeamFortyBurger lives!

Amari Cooper, Michael Gallup and Lamb should make up a formidable trio at receiver. Then there is the pass-catching skills of Ezekiel Elliott, and Tony Pollard, plus the...

Three reasons why Ezekiel Elliott will be the more effective pass-catching running back for the Cowboys

Photo by Tom Pennington/Getty Images

Much has been made of Tony Pollards pass-catching skills when Zeke could be the most effective.

The addition of head coach Mike McCarthy has led many to assume that second-year running back Tony Pollard is going to get a boost in playing time thanks to his pass-catching skills whether in the slot or out of the back field. While that is possible, that could be overlooking the fact that starting running back Ezekiel Elliott is just as effective when...

Let’s give some love to the guys in the trenches.

There is a sense of optimism surrounding the Dallas Cowboys this offseason. Between a much needed remake of the coaching staff, a lot of very solid or better returning starters, and what is widely regarded as an extremely good crop of new talent, there is a lot to make us wish that training camp would get here already. But most of the excitement, such as the report from our own Dave Halprin about how...

Why the 2020 Cowboys should run less and pass more

Jerome Miron-USA TODAY Sports

What worked and what didn’t work for the Cowboys last season and what it means for 2020.

10 years ago, we took our first look at Expected Points Added (EPA) here on Blogging The Boys. At the time, EPA existed only in the form of Excel sheets passed around by email (I got mine from Brian Burke, then with AdvancedNFLStats), and manually calculating the EPA for every single play in a season was supremely time consuming.

We’ve come a long way since then, and...

I bet you can guess where they are going with this.

The Dallas Cowboys don’t have to worry about immediately losing quarterback Dak Prescott because they gave him the franchise tag this offseason. However, they haven’t worked out a long-term deal, which is risky for two reasons.

Technically speaking 2020, the year we’re in obviously, is a leap year which means you have to add 1,440 more when talking about it. Today we are not talking about the calendar year of 2020, but we are looking back at this day last year - June 1st, 2019.

The one “underrated” Cowboys player that could swing the NFC East championship in 2020

Could one player really hold so much power?

So the premise here is a Bleacher Report article titled: 8 Underrated NFL Players Who Can Swing Division Races in 2020. To pull this off you need to set at least some set of loose parameters to identify underrated players that fit the definition of potentially “swinging a division”. They do that in this manner:
