LB Rolando McClain impresses in Cowboys debut

The Dallas Cowboys and linebacker Rolando McClain are in a mutual situation where both need each other equally.

Cowboys were very close to selecting Johnny Manziel

The Dallas Cowboys and owner Jerry Jones watched as Johnny Manziel fell in the 2014 draft, and they were ready to pounce on him, but instead used their No. 16 pick on offensive guard Zack Martin. They were so close on pulling the trigger. Ultimately, their faith in Tony Romo kept them from it. “I want you to know that almost as I was handing in the card, it was that close to...

Dez Bryant’s Tweet Leads to Cowboys Panic, But it Was False Alarm

When you are going down the list of top wide receivers in the NFL, you can’t get too far without mentioning Dez Bryant. He’s in most people’s Top 5 and everyone’s Top 10. Just from a sheer talent standpoint, you could make a case he has more pure talent than any other WR in the NFL. His numbers have been strong and substantiate his standing as one of the best in the game...

Did Jerry Jones save Rolando McClain’s career?

Some may call it the wrong move from the owner/general manager of the Dallas Cowboys. At some point during the 2014 NFL season though, there’s a chance that Jerry Jones might actually look like he made a move that makes Cowboys’ fans incredibly happy. What was this move? Well, apparently Jones is the reason why McClain is back in the NFL, and playing for the Cowboys. Sure, McClain...

Cowboys preparing the Tsunami Effect

  (credit: There has been a lot of chatter about the Marinelli Wave that is planned for the Cowboys’ defensive line, but this is merely the calm before the storm. Look for more of a Tsunami effect from the energized, new youth movement on both sides of the ball. While sadly having to move on from some older, respected players, the team has brought in a solid...
