Cowboys news: Penalties remain story from Denver as team looks ahead to Chargers

Cowboys news: Penalties remain story from Denver as team looks ahead to Chargers

Ron Chenoy-USA TODAY Sports The latest and greatest Dallas Cowboys news. 17 penalty-game shows continuation of Cowboys’ undisciplined play under McCarthy - Todd Brock, The Cowboys Wire Whatever the Cowboys are doing to clean up penalties clearly isn’t working so far. The Cowboys were flagged 17 times against the Broncos, most in the NFL over the weekend’s worth of games. While it was admittedly a meaningless exhibition contest (and a couple calls were notably questionable), the 129 yards conceded on those flags are emblematic of a bigger problem that just...

The first preseason game highlighted how poorly the Cowboys handled tackle depth this offseason

Photo by Josh Lefkowitz/ Decisions made by the Cowboys in March have consequences come September. We are tossing and turning. The temperature is a little off, but we have checked in and turned the fan on to help us out. Sound machines offer a little bit of solace although we would have to get up to turn them on. Ultimately, we are here lying in a bed that we did not choose to make and are trying to figure out how to go to sleep. It wasn’t us who put these sheets on or left the night light in the perfect spot to annoy our vision. Yet here we are. Lying in it. The...

7 unexpected conclusions from Cowboys’ 17-7 preseason loss to the Broncos

7 unexpected conclusions from Cowboys’ 17-7 preseason loss to the Broncos

There is real depth at running back. | Photo by C. Morgan Engel/ We always see surprising things in the first game. One thing that we don’t value enough is how preseason football games can change our perceptions of players and entire teams. That is certainly true for me after the displeasing 17-7 loss suffered by the Dallas Cowboys at the hands of the Denver Broncos on Saturday. After writing the game recap and reviewing the game and other media coverage, several things are worthy of revision or discussion. The irony of the running back depth With Ezekiel Elliott and...

Cowboys roster move: Dallas Cowboys reportedly down to 85 players after moving on from five

Photo by Robin Alam/Icon Sportswire via This is the first step towards the final 53. By Tuesday afternoon teams around the National Football League have to be down to 85 players. It is a part of the way that things work this time of year and a first part of the process towards trimming down to 53 players on everyone’s final roster. While nothing is official until it is official the Cowboys are seemingly down to 85 players already as The Dallas Morning News reported on the five moves that they will be making in order to get down to where they have to.

Cowboys show new faces, but more of the same in preseason loss at Denver

Photo by Jamie Schwaberow/ The Cowboys still have work to do cleaning up penalties after their first four quarters of the preseason. Saturday night in Denver was the first chance for the Dallas Cowboys to prove they’ve changed as a team, for better or worse, since their playoff loss to the 49ers. While the final score showed another loss, the preseason opener was all but an extension of the joint practice the Cowboys held against the Broncos earlier in the week. The better reminder of how last season ended were 17 penalties called on the Cowboys, a supposed point of...

Dak Prescott talks 2022 season, being a leader, goals for the year ... and getting tackled by ‘Real Housewives’ stars

Dak Prescott for DIRECTV campaign | DIRECTV QB1 sat down with us to chat about the upcoming season, and his role in DIRECTV’s new “Get Your TV Together” campaign. When it is all said and done, the 2022 season is going to come down to one thing for the Dallas Cowboys — and that is quarterback Dak Prescott. There is no more important player in football than your quarterback and the Cowboys have been fortunate to have Prescott under center for six years now. Time tends to fly that way. Recently, thanks to our friends at DIRECTV, we were fortunate enough to get to...

Everything really is bigger in Texas, especially the tailgating

Photo by Tom Pennington/ A pre-game party at AT&T Stadium is something every Dallas Cowboys fan should experience at least once in their lifetime. You know what they say, “everything is bigger in Texas,” and when it comes to the tailgating scene that definitely rings true. There is nothing quite like the experience of visiting Arlington, Texas and coming to the building that Jerry built. Everything from the look of the stadium when you first pull up, to the art gallery built within the concourse ... be prepared to be in awe of the beauty and detail you will...

New study shows the Cowboys have been hanging their quarterbacks out to dry

New study shows the Cowboys have been hanging their quarterbacks out to dry

Photo by Tom Pennington/ Observers of the Cowboys won’t find this surprising. It’s not exactly a new concept that the Cowboys front office, led by Jerry and Stephen Jones, has done little to bolster their rosters and give the team a legitimate shot at winning a Super Bowl. It seems as if this talking point comes up every year, in one way or another, and often at critical junctures of the season. The younger Jones has often used a refrain of focusing on saving cap space in order to better surround their top talent with weapons, thereby creating a Super Bowl roster....

Photo by Tom Pennington/ And other notable headlines surrounding America’s team. Mike McCarthy Reveals Why He Benched Cowboys Veteran Last Night - Andrew Gould, Sports Illustrated Like the fans who watched, McCarthy was fed up with the penalties. After committing an NFL-high 141 penalties in 2021 (including 14 in their playoff loss), the Cowboys got called for 17 infractions during Saturday’s loss to the Denver Broncos. One of them led McCarthy to bench Dante Fowler. The newly acquired edge-rusher got called for a personal foul when pushing an opposing player off...

Cowboys at Broncos: The good, the bad, and the ugly from preseason Week 1

Ron Chenoy-USA TODAY Sports The highs and lows from preseason week 1 for the Dallas Cowboys. It was a mixed bag of results for the Dallas Cowboys in their first preseason matchup against the Denver Broncos Saturday night. As you would expect, it wasn’t all sunshine and rainbows in the Cowboys first meaningful action of the year, however, it wasn’t all doom and gloom either. As far as preseason matchups go, the Cowboys showed plenty of things that gives us hope they can have a successful 2022 season, but on the flipside, they also showed they still have quite a bit...

Photo by C. Morgan Engel/ It’s not much, but we got a little sampling that might help us determine who could win some key Cowboys roster battles. The first preseason game for the Dallas Cowboys didn’t make fans feel all that great, but hey, it’s early. There is definitely a lot to sort out, but at the very least we did get a taste of how a few key position battles could play out. Today, we're going to take a look at five battles and what we saw on Saturday that could influence who stays and who goes come final roster cuts. Dante Fowler vs. Tarell Basham These...

5 takeaways from the Cowboys 17-7 preseason loss to the Broncos

Ron Chenoy-USA TODAY Sports What did we learn from the Cowboys first preseason action? It wasn’t pretty, but preseason debuts rarely are. The Dallas Cowboys went up to Denver and put on a display that was, let’s say, less than flattering. It was riddled with mistakes that brought out so much laundry that the officials are going to have to do two separate loads. It’s not how you’d hope to see the team open the season, but that’s what they gave us. Here are five takeaways from this less-than-satisfying preseason opener. 1.

[Russell] Wilson sat this one out, as did Cowboys QB Dak Prescott, leaving the passing duties to backups. Rypien was 8 of 18 for 113 yards. Cooper Rush got the start for Dallas and was 12 of 20 for 84 yards and an interception. Ben DiNucci (9 of 16 for 112 yards) finally got the...

Dallas Cowboys at Denver Broncos: Stocks Up include Tyler Smith, Stocks Down include team discipline

Photo by Jamie Schwaberow/ There were good and bad things to take away from Saturday night. The Dallas Cowboys played a football game on Saturday night. That in and of itself is a very good and cool thing. Obviously there are things that happened (or didn’t happen) that we wish were different. The scoreboard notes that Dallas lost, but that isn’t where gripes have fallen among fans of the team. It’s the how of all this happened, including Thursday’s scrimmage against the Denver Broncos, that is more troubling. Saturday night featured both positive and negative...
