Today the Boys got the win over the Detroit Lions. This game featured Zeke heavily in both the running and passing game. He put on a high light reel today. He had 152 yards on the ground and 80 yards threw the air. The boy balled out. The game came down to the wire. Dak was solid and effective. He was able to move the ball up the field this game. The defense was solid but gave up crucial big plays threw the air. Game was one on a great 4th qt drive by Dak and the Cowboys followed by a go ahead field goal by Maher
Coming off a year where the boys won the nfc east and went into the playoffs, the expectations are high. Can they do it again. Can they improve upon last season? That is the question everybody wants to know. Dak was a unicorn his 1st year in the nfl. Dak was prolific, he was a beast. He won rookie of the year and was elected to the pro bowl. What a year, right. Ezekiel Elliot was just as impressive if not more. He was the top rusher in the NFL in his first year. There has been a lot of speculation as to if Elliot would be potentially suspended a couple games this year for his alleged involvement in incidents. Jerry said out his mouth that there is no evidence in Elliot's alleged involvement in a domestic violence case. With that being said we shall see. The cowboys parted ways with most of the dbs on last year's roster. They drafted whole new squad of dbs in this years draft. Only the future will tell how they pan out. The boys drafted Taco Charlston to produce a pass rush that hasn't seem to be there in a couple years. David Irving emerged as pretty good pass rusher last year. Maybe the pair of Irving and Taco can produce sacks going forward. The cowboys won their first preseason game yesterday vs. the cardinals. Jerry Jones will be inducted in the Football Hall of Fame this Saturday.The boys will open the season with several suspended players sitting out games. They will open the season with a top notch offence that will have to carry the team. The defense is always suspect but coach Rod Marinelli will coach them up. Hopefully the young guys will learn fast, and the veterans will ball out. I'm optimistic going in to the season. This season will be exciting to watch especially with the emergence of Dak and Zeke. Cowboys Nation will be in full effect. Let the cowboy flags, fantasy football, and tailgating begin. Its starting to look a lot like FOOTBALL SEAON! Oh yeah and I predict we win the SUPER BOWL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
FRISCO, Texas – It’s never my intention, but I always wind up trying to offer perspective at the start of this column.
I’m going to offer some opinions about this Week 17 matchup against the Eagles in a minute. There’s guy who should sit and guys who should play, and everyone’s got an opinion about whether Tony Romo should play on Sunday.
That’s all important, and I’ll get to it. But before that, I’m going to stop and appreciate how crazy at is that these are the talking points for the week.
The Cowboys have been so good in 2016 that there’s literally nothing else to play for. They could lose to the Eagles, 34-0, and fall to 3-3 in the NFC East – and they’d still be the division champions and the No. 1 seed in the NFC playoffs.
It’s been a decade since we’ve seen this happen. Even the 2014 Cowboys, positioned at third in the NFC, had an outside shot at winning a bye week heading into Week 17. Last year’s team was so putrid that it was playing for draft positioning.
And then of course, you can’t forget 2011, 2012 or 2013 – when the Cowboys entered the final game of the season not knowing whether they’d be celebrating a playoff berth or mourning a wasted season. That’s the position Detroit, Green Bay and Washington find themselves in this week – and it sounds incredibly stressful.
Instead, these Cowboys are guaranteed a week off and a home playoff games. They’re two wins from the Super Bowl, which isn’t something they’ve been able to say many times in the last 20 years.
Of course, there’s stuff worth worrying about. Anxiety goes up as the stakes do.
But when you’re fretting about playing time and substitution battles for a game that equates to nothing, just stop and think about what all you’ve seen this season. It’s more fun to enjoy the ride than worry about the destination.
1. Having said all of that, let’s talk about how the crazy the Cowboys would have to be to play Tony Romo against the Eagles.
What exactly is the point?
The most common argument I’ve heard is that Romo needs reps if he’s going to be ready to contribute in the playoffs, in the event that Dak Prescott is injured. He hasn’t played a regular season game since Thanksgiving Day, 2015, and he’s played in just four games since the 2014 season.
Of course, live reps can’t hurt. But let’s look at it this way: the Cowboys average about 64 snaps per game. Let’s assume you’re going to treat this like a preseason game and give Dak Prescott one half of work. That leaves about 34 snaps for Romo to work with after halftime.
Is it worthwhile to expose Romo to the risk of injury over 34 snaps – against a 6-9 Eagles team that has nothing to play for? I say no.
Tony Romo’s main value to the Cowboys right now is as a fantastic insurance policy in the event of an injury. It’s not a worthwhile risk to jeopardize that insurance policy over half of a meaningless game.
2. Now comes your rebuttal: “Well, if he’s that susceptible to injury, he shouldn’t even be the backup.”
Of course, it’s not far from anyone’s mind that Romo has gotten hurt in three of the last four games he’s played. There’s bound to be some uncertainty about his ability to take a hit – not to mention his aptitude after almost two years off.
But this is just silly. If Romo were to enter this game, he’d be playing with Emmett Cleary as his left tackle. He’d undoubtedly be giving the ball to second-and-third stringers, as guys like Dez Bryant and Ezekiel Elliott eventually take a seat on the bench.
I honestly think, despite all of this, Romo could get through a half of football injury-free – but again, why risk it? He’s a 14-year veteran and a 10-year starter. Obviously, reps are a benefit, but 34 game reps aren’t going to make the difference between getting him ready and not. I’d much rather guarantee he’s healthy in case this team needs him – and it certainly seems like management agrees with me.
3. “What about his trade value,” is the next question to come up – and it’s a good one.
I’ve been saying for several months that you need to play Tony Romo, because you need to find out what he can do and what he might be worth going forward. It seems unlikely another team is going to pony up for Romo’s massive contract without some assurance he can stay healthy and play at a high level.
Unfortunately, that ship has sailed. If that’s something the Cowboys wanted to do, it needed to be done back in November. They opted not to, and it has worked out well for them. Since Romo returned to action, back on Nov. 20, the Cowboys are 5-1. So it’s hard to second-guess the decision to ride with Dak.
Having said that, 34 meaningless snaps – or even a full meaningless game – isn’t enough to do much for his market. Not in my opinion, at least. At this late point in the season, the Cowboys have effectively decided to shelve Romo. Whatever that means for his future is just something we’re going to have to wait and see about.
4. I made a joke during the Lions game that Detroit running back Zach Zenner looked like Barry Sanders, given the way he was cutting through the Dallas defense.
Obviously, I was kidding. Sanders is arguably the greatest running back to ever put on cleats, while Zenner has 325 career yards.
But it was still alarming to see how easily Zenner picked up yards in the first half. After one possession, he had 31 yards, and he was sitting on 64 yards at halftime.
Then, a funny thing happened. The Cowboys picked off Matthew Stafford to open the second half, and they broke a 21-21 tie. They never looked back, and Detroit rushed just eight times for 25 yards the rest of the way. The Lions went to halftime with 65 rushing yards and finished the game with just 90.
5. By this point in the season, you don’t need me to tell you that this is how the Cowboys win. They build a lead, they don’t turn it over and they force opponents to become one-dimensional.
Check out these numbers:
In the first half of Cowboys wins, their opponents are rushing the ball an average of 11 times for 48 yards. After halftime, that average drops to nine rushes for 30 yards.
Now, that doesn’t seem like a big discrepancy – but remember, it’s an average. On top of shutting down Detroit in the second half, this defense limited Tampa to 21 yards on nine runs in the second half. They gave up just two yards on seven carries in the second half at Pittsburgh.
Maybe the most interesting one of all: Baltimore ran 13 times for 86 yards and a touchdown in the first half of Week 11. In the second half, they put together a measly 15 yards on three carries.
Contrast that with the two losses to New York. In the second half of the Dec. 11 game, the Giants ran the ball a whopping 23 times for 63 yards, finishing with 90 on the night. In the second half of the season opener, they ran the ball 18 times for 75 yards.
Those numbers aren’t that impressive in the grand scheme, but it certainly makes a difference when you can pound the ball, run the clock and wear the opposing defense down. That hasn’t happened to the Cowboys many times this year, and it’s reflected in their record.
6. Outside of the quarterback issue, I’m not going to spend a ton of time worrying about this Eagles game. Regardless of what the Cowboys say, it doesn’t matter. And I also think most of the important players will be sitting by the fourth quarter, anyway.
What I am worried about is the games that directly impact the playoff picture. We still don’t know who will snag the No. 2 seed and the other bye week, and both the NFC North and the second wildcard are still up for grabs.
Personally, here’s how I think it plays out: I refuse to bet against Aaron Rodgers in a do-or-die game, and I feel confident Washington, playing at home, can beat a Giants team with nothing to play for.
Even with their recent struggles, I think the Seahawks will beat San Francisco. I don’t feel great about it, but I think Atlanta can beat New Orleans with a bye week on the line.
So my best guess is that Dallas and Atlanta head into the playoffs with bye weeks. Seattle will be No. 3, and Green Bay will round out the division winners at No. 4. The Packers will host New York at Lambeau Field, and the Seahawks will host Washington.
I don’t like the Redskins’ chances of winning a wildcard game at CenturyLink Field, so you know what that means.
In a scenario where the No. 6 seed doesn’t win, the Cowboys are certain to face either the No. 4 or No. 5 team. What I’m trying to say is I expect either Green Bay or New York to be the divisional round opponent when the Cowboys start their playoff run in two weeks.
7. That’s what I think will happen, but it’s certainly not what I think would be best for the Cowboys.
Ideally, how amazing would it be if Detroit beat Green Bay this weekend, while Washington beat New York? I’m all in favor of any scenario that has Green Bay falling out of the playoffs – because I’m sorry, but I don’t think the Cowboys want any part of Aaron Rodgers in a rematch at AT&T Stadium.
Of all the teams Dallas could host in two weeks, I think the Lions are the most favorable matchup of all. But, with apologies to Detroit, I just don’t have any faith it’ll work out that way.
8. It’s hilarious to think that back in the summer, I had every confidence the Cowboys would return to the playoffs. It made too much sense, given the addition of Ezekiel Elliott and the return of Tony Romo from injury.
After Romo broke his back, I backed off those predictions considerably. I just looked back at my playoff predictions, and I called for the Giants to win the NFC East – with Arizona and Detroit serving as the wildcards.
Honestly, I feel pretty good about my playoff picks. I correctly picked seven of 12 participants, and I might get an eighth if Detroit finds a way in. I whiffed pretty horribly on my Cincinnati and Carolina picks, but c’est la vie.
I really don’t even feel bad about not picking the Cowboys. Who could have predicted a team quarterbacked by a fourth-round rookie would be sitting at 13-2? If you predicted that, hats off to you. What a season it’s been.
9. One last time this regular season, here are my mediocre picks:
Baltimore over CINCINNATI
Houston over TENNESSEE
Carolina over TAMPA BAY
INDIANAPOLIS over Jacksonville
New England over MIAMI
MINNESOTA over Chicago
Buffalo over NEW YORK JETS
PITTSBURGH over Cleveland
ATLANTA over New Orleans
WASHINGTON over New York
Arizona over LOS ANGELES
DENVER over Oakland
Kansas City over San Diego
Seattle over SAN FRANCISCO
Green Bay over DETROIT
Cowboys 8-1 Riding High With Dak
Its week 11 in the NFL and the the cowboys sit at the top of the rankings. A year ago no one would have seen this coming. Romo breaks his back again in the preaseason against the Seahawks. The rookie QB we selected in the 4th round is balling out of his mind and is now the undisputed starter for Americas' Team. Oh yeah and another rookie Ezekiel Elliot is looking like the best running back to ever step on a field. Good time to be a Cowboys fan lol. Dak is a clear natural born leader at the Qb position, He is calm and poised under pressure. He has attributes of a seasoned veteran. He is a dual threat at the qb position, and gives opposing defenses all types of problems on defense. Prescott has been very accurate and strategic with his passes. He has made the plays, when it has mattered the most, The young guy is clutch. He goes thru all his reads and will hit the open receiver, If nothing is there he will get yardage with his feet and slide to avoid major hits. The guy plays a perfect game. To say "Zeke is eating" is an understatement. "The man child is gorging!" He leads the league in rushing with 1,005 yards to go along with 9 rushing tds. The team is certainly trending up lead by the rookie dual. The defense has played solid even with key injuries and suspensions of defensive players. Hopefully the guys can get healthy and continue to ride this winning wave deep into the playoffs and can you say SUPERBOWL!!!!!!!!!!!!!

FRISCO, Texas -- With a rookie quarterback, you would think the Dallas Cowboys would go into something of a shell to protect Dak Prescott.
That hasn't been the case at all. They have been more diverse than they were with Brandon Weeden, Matt Cassel or Kellen Moore last year during Tony Romo's absence.
"I mean, we're running our offense and the aggressive nature of our offense always kind of applies to situations in the game but there's nothing we're holding back with Dak when it comes to what we do on offense," offensive coordinator Scott Linehan said. "We do the same things we do with Tony. It's no different."
It's a little different. The Cowboys have incorporated more bootlegs and waggles to get Prescott on the edge. They also have the zone read in the playbook. In the win over the San Francisco 49ers, they went with a no-huddle look so the defense would have to stay relatively basic after showing a number of looks in previous weeks.
In the last three games the Cowboys have used more empty formations with Prescott, which is a formation in which Romo excels as well.
"I couldn't ask for a better offensive coordinator, play caller to start my career off in this league," Prescott said. "I mean he's been phenomenal in the play calling, allowing me to feel comfortable in everything. The drop-back passes, the play action, allowing me to play my game, just a lot of credit to the way he coaches me and the plays he's calling."
Prescott is averaging 33 passes per game and has yet to have one intercepted in 131 attempts. He is completing nearly 70 percent of his passes as well.
Until Moore took over as the starter in the final two games last season, the Cowboys' offense struggled for an identity. It was almost as if they played not to lose instead of playing to win. The question is whether the confidence in Prescott has led to the aggressiveness or if the aggressiveness has led to Prescott's play.
"I don't think we keep it too simple," Linehan said. "Dak handles everything that we give him ... There's not a lot of background so you're not going to make an adjustment in a game that you did two years ago since [he wasn't] here two years ago. So I think kind of stay there, especially with the younger players, but I think Dak does a great job of handling in-game adjustments and things that we might need to do based on how somebody is playing us that we maybe haven't run before."
The Cowboys new rookie QB showcased tremendous potential in his NFL debut. The Cowboys 2016 4th round pick was exceptional against the recently transposed LA Rams. Dak Prescott threw for 139 yards. His completion ratio was 10 out of 12. He lead the cowboys to 2 touchdowns and a field goal while at the helm. He threw a dime of a pass to Dez Bryant to score the 1st touchdown. Followed by a 32 yard bomb to Terrence Williams to score his second touchdown. On his last drive he lead the boys up the field to put Dallas in field goal range. Overall i give him an "A" for his debut performance. He made plays, kept his poise, and was a leader in the huddle. Could he be the answer after Romo's reign comes to an end? Who knows, only time will tell, but as far know he looks promising. I'm sure the world along with Cowboy Nation are excited and curious to see how Dak performs in the upcoming preseason games.

KINGMAN, Ariz. -- Four people were killed Sunday when a bus carrying Dallas Cowboys staffers but no players collided with a van on a northwestern Arizona highway.
The fatalities were people in the van (three female passengers and one male), Arizona Department of Public Safety spokesman Quentin Mehr said. He did not release their identities.
"An accident involving loss of life is tragic," Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said in a statement Monday. "We as an organization are deeply saddened, and our thoughts, prayers and concerns at this time are with the family members and loved ones of all who were lost."
The bus occupants were uninjured.
"All on the bus came through OK with some bumps and bruises," Cowboys spokesman Rich Dalrymple said Sunday in an email.
Dalrymple said the bus was only carrying members of the franchise's staff but would not say how many.
Among those on board the team bus were DallasCowboys.com columnist Mickey Spagnola, a team mascot and a team videographer.
The two vehicles collided in the afternoon on U.S. 93, about 30 miles north of the city of Kingman, according to Mehr. The van was turning left at an intersection when it collided with the Cowboys' bus.
The crash shut down at least one lane of the highway that serves as the main route between Phoenix and Las Vegas.
The bus was on its way to a Dallas Cowboys fan event in Las Vegas. Charles Cooper, manager of GameWorks entertainment center in Vegas, said the session with 50 to 75 fans was scheduled for 3 p.m. PT. People were already waiting when the president of a Las Vegas Cowboys fan club called to relay news of the crash. The event was subsequently canceled. Cooper said the team mascot was supposed to appear.
After the Las Vegas stop, the bus was scheduled to go on to Oxnard, California, for the team's training camp. Members of the organization typically take a bus two weeks before the camp starts and make stops along the way.
