Gus Johnson Do Enough To Earn A Job On The Dallas Cowboys Practice Squad?

Former Stephen F. Austin running back Gus Johnson quickly became a fan favorite when he was signed to the Dallas Cowboys after injuries hit the 'Boys hard during training camp. He played well in his first game and second game, but as the other guys got healthy he played less. When he took the field for Thursday night's preseason contest with the Houston Texans he knew he had to shine...

Report: Cowboys have interest in Broncos RB Montee Ball

    Montee Ball could end up being released soon, and the Dallas Cowboys would have interest in him if that is the case. Ball is fighting for a roster spot on the Denver Broncos and buried below several running backs on the team’s depth chart. He also didn’t play well in Thursday’s finale, rushing for just 27 yards on 16 carries. The Broncos are said to be shopping...

Jerry Jones on Brady ruling: ‘I’m ready for us to play football’

If Jerry Jones has an opinion on the NFL’s embarrassing courtroom defeat in which its four-game suspension of Tom Brady was nullified by U.S. District Judge Richard M. Berman, he appears intent on keeping it close to the vest. The Dallas Cowboys owner, whose team will now be tasked with facing the New England Patriots with its superstar quarterback under center in Week 5 (the...

Jerry Jones dodges Deflategate questions: 'I’m ready for us to play football'

Amid prior reports that NFL team owners were pushing commissioner Roger Goodell to stick to his guns on Brady's 4-game suspension, Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones wasn't about to throw himself into that category. Now that the suspension has been vacated, Jones, who's team faces the Pats in Week 5, was of course asked for his thoughts on the matter. “I really hadn’t let...

Staubach calls Romo 'one of the best quarterbacks in the league'

Now, 36 years removed from the field, Staubach is predicting success for quarterback Tony Romo and the Dallas Cowboys. He also pegged the Cowboys as a playoff team last season, which they were...

2015 NFL Rookie To Watch | Dallas Cowboys

The Cowboys rookie to watch this season is their first round choice CB Byron Jones.  Jones got on the draft radar when he blew up the Combine with a record setting performance.  He is ultra athletic and also smart with high character.  He is a versatile player who can also line up at safety.  Due to injuries in the secondary, the Cowboys will need Jones to play at corner on opening...

Why Nick Hayden Will Have a Bigger Year

Yesterday at lunch, a group of guys from one of my fantasy football leagues was in a discussion about the Cowboys. At one point, they started discussing the defensive line improvements and eventually it got around to Nick Hayden. Everyone turned to look at me expecting me to trash Hayden. They did this because last year I was very vocal about my displeasure with Hayden starting;...

Darren McFadden and the glass-half empty or half-full report

During the football season, we have a weekly tradition of watching the Sunday night football game at my house with some relatives who just so happen to be die-hard Steeler fans. They loathe the Cowboys as much as they like their favorite team. What I always find fascinating is discussing/arguing about the results of the earlier games, especially when the Cowboys play. We both can...

Michael Irvin's passionate speech to Cowboys features lots of math (Video)

Michael Irvin gave a passionate speech to the Dallas Cowboys hoping to inspire his former team to return to the Super Bowl, and it included an awful lot of math.

Reality has set in for Jerry Jones on Cowboys running backs

Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones is known for being a little too confident in the team, but it seems he’s grasped that the current depth at running back won’t provide the impact DeMarco Murray did in 2014. According to Jon Machota of The Dallas Morning News, in an appearance on 105.3 New School, Jones is merely looking for opponents to respect the Cowboys’ rushing attack...

Addition by subtraction could prove Dallas doubters wrong

There’s more negativity than positives from outsiders on the Joneses letting DeMarco Murray walk, but sometimes using an addition by subtraction approach can make up for one big loss. Let’s take a look at the Saints, for example. GM Mickey Loomis trading elite tight end Jimmy Graham to the Seahawks was a head scratcher to many, but he knew the team was facing salary cap issues...
