Re-visiting Mike McCarthy’s sit-down interview from 2019 shows he has not done what he said he would

Robert Deutsch-USA TODAY Sports McCarthy has not exactly done what McCarthy said McCarthy would do. We are two years into The McCarthy Project with the Dallas Cowboys. You will recall that the specific verbiage of “The McCarthy Project” existed before the head coach ever wore the star. About 27 months ago Mike McCarthy was readying to enter the coaching cycle after taking the 2019 season off. With a Super Bowl to his name McCarthy was an interesting candidate for teams that were in need of coaches (Cleveland, New York, Washington, and Carolina were also all looking...

Why Sean Payton’s shadow will loom over Cowboys’ Mike McCarthy - Todd Archer, ESPN.com It’s going to be hard for Mike McCarthy to ignore the elephant in the room. Once the season starts, McCarthy will be looking over his shoulder the entire time. Every loss will be dissected through the Payton prism.

Matthew Emmons-USA TODAY Sports There is a new GM in the NFC East! There are four teams left in the current NFL season and on Sunday they will be cut in half as the field for Super Bowl LVI will finally be set. Whether it is the Cincinnati Bengals, Kansas City Chiefs, San Francisco 49ers, or Los Angeles Rams remains to be seen, we all have our thoughts on who we want it to be. Elsewhere there are four teams of interest to us in the Dallas Cowboys, Philadelphia Eagles, New York Giants, and Washington Football Team. WFT will actually have a new name this time next week...

3 things that need to happen for the Cowboys to reach the NFC Championship in 2022

3 things that need to happen for the Cowboys to reach the NFC Championship in 2022

Tim Heitman-USA TODAY Sports With the 2021 Conference Championship featuring a two-seed, two four seeds, and a six seed, this year is a perfect example of “anything can happen in the postseason.” But what would it take for the Cowboys to be one of the four teams in 2022? 26 years. With every season ushering in another disappointing ending for the Dallas Cowboys, we are constantly reminded how long it has been since the last NFC Championship game featured America’s Team. The truth is that Dallas is likely still far away from ending their drought, and the 2021...

Cowboys 2022 free agents: Dallas has 5 players in the Top 50 rankings by ESPN

Cowboys 2022 free agents: Dallas has 5 players in the Top 50 rankings by ESPN

Danielle Parhizkaran/NorthJersey.com / USA TODAY NETWORK Cowboys have some big decisions to make in free agency for 2022. The Dallas Cowboys have a pretty extensive list of free agents heading into the 2022 offseason. We have the whole list here, but the top line number is that 24 Cowboys are free agents with only three of those restricted or exclusive rights free agents. So that’s 21 that the Cowboys have no rights to unless they place a franchise tag on someone. It’s not always quantity that’s the problem, instead it can be quality. It looks like Dallas has...

It looks like Kellen Moore is staying in Dallas, so Cowboys need to get him better support

It looks like Kellen Moore is staying in Dallas, so Cowboys need to get him better support

Photo by Richard Rodriguez/ Kellen Moore has undeniable talent, but he still has room to grow. While nothing is official and the nature of the NFL means things can always change at a moment’s notice, it looks as if Kellen Moore will be coming back to the Cowboys after all. Three months ago, this would have been cause for celebration; heck, just a year ago at this time the Cowboys had to give him a raise to prevent the young coach from taking the top job at his alma mater. Moore’s support among the fans is more split after the Cowboys offense experienced enough...

3 defensive coordinator candidates who could potentially replace Cowboys coach Dan Quinn

3 defensive coordinator candidates who could potentially replace Cowboys coach Dan Quinn

Photo by Al Pereira/ The Cowboys better have a backup plan. It seems like a forgone conclusion that Dan Quinn will be one and done as the Dallas Cowboys defensive coordinator. It’s quite amazing that under his tutelage this unit went from a franchise-worst 473 points allowed last year to a top-seven defense in points allowed and creating a league-high 34 takeaways. Not only did Quinn’s squad take the ball away, but they turned several of those turnovers into points as they finished the year with six total defensive touchdowns. His mark on this Cowboys defense cannot...

Revisiting the analytics-based predictions of the Cowboys 2021 season

Photo by Maddie Meyer/ How well did these Cowboys predictions age? The Cowboys’ season came and went, and all the highs of a 12-win season were quickly crushed by the low of losing to the 49ers in Dallas in the Wild Card round. For those who followed along in our weekly analytics roundups, you know that the Cowboys finished the year as the most efficient team in the NFL by DVOA, yet they squandered such a good season with an early playoff exit. It was a good reminder that analytics, like all other statistics, are merely a measure of what’s come already and not an...

Insider says Cowboys had deal to trade for Sean Payton until Anthony Davis wanted out of New Orleans

Photo by Sean Gardner/ This Cowboys story is something else. Recent chatter around the Dallas Cowboys is all about former New Orleans Saints head coach Sean Payton and that is because of one particular word - former. Tuesday brought news that Payton, who served on Bill Parcells’ staff in Dallas in the early 2000s, is walking away from the Saints. That is fueling a tale as old as time that he could wind up returning to the same Cowboys organization who saw him walk away in 2006 and go on to have all of the success that he did. Until this year Payton flirting with...

Poll: Who do you want to see make it to the Super Bowl?

Photo by Andy Lyons/ Which two teams do you want to see in The Big Game? The Dallas Cowboys will not be playing in Super Bowl LVI and that is still tough to accept. Onward we march. As unfortunate as that is, we are now down to the final four teams in this NFL season and there are a ton of interesting storylines going on. Three of the four teams have not won a Super Bowl this century, one of them hasn’t won one ever, while the fourth is the Kansas City Chiefs who won it all two years ago. While the Cowboys are our first and only priority as far as rooting interests...

Cowboys coaching rumors: The latest on Kellen Moore, Dan Quinn - and Sean Payton

Doesn’t look like he’s going anywhere. | Tommy Gilligan-USA TODAY Sports It is all still rumor and supposition, but we are getting closer to resolution for the Cowboys. The NFL coaching market has been unusually slow in 2022. It leaves the Dallas Cowboys waiting to see what vacancies they might have to fill as both defensive coordinator Dan Quinn and offensive coordinator Kellen Moore have been on the head coaching interview circuit. We are still waiting for something definite, but that may change soon. Moore was seen just a couple of months ago as one of the hot...

Depending on who you talk to, determining the Dallas Cowboys team needs heading into the 2022 season will no doubt vary one way or another.

The first weekend of football void of America’s Team was at least interesting and full of drama.

Despite what you heard, the Dallas Cowboys were not the #1 ranked offense in 2021

Kevin Jairaj-USA TODAY Sports While it was common for the television broadcast to say “the Dallas Cowboys have the best offense in the NFL,” this is not true by almost every metric. During the season, about twice a game, Dallas Cowboys fans were reminded that “Dallas has the number one scoring offense in football.” Even more egregious, the announcers would often state that the Cowboys have the best offense in the league. While both of these statements are objectively false, they are being thrown around to defend Kellen Moore and Dak Prescott. If you want to...
