Our Cowboys Blog has a new home

Injuries plagued the Dallas Cowboys during the 2012 season and the team finished 8-8, missing the playoffs for the third consecutive year. The offense was particularly short-handed throughout the year after losing Jason Witten, Miles Austin, and Demarco Murray to injury for different stretches of the season. Hopefully Tony Romo’s new contract along with a healthy offense can lead to a few more W’s in the win column. On the defensive side of the ball the team got rid of defensive coordinator Rob Ryan who will be replaced by Monte Kiffin. Lets see if this change can help a defensive that struggled all season, especiall with adjusting to RGIII and the read-option, which they get the opportunity to see twice a year.

Saddling Up for 2013

The 2012 season ended miserably for the Dallas Cowboys as Tony Romo threw an interception on the potential game-winning drive against the Washington Redskins in week 17. Heading into the season, the Cowboys were given around 3-1 odds of winning the hotly contested NFC East, but ultimately came up short. With another disappointing season for Romo and company, changes were on the horizon for America’s team. First to go was brash Defensive Coordinator Rob Ryan who was fired after 2 less than stellar years. In his place, the renowned Monte Kiffin and his “Tampa 2” defense were brought
in to shut down the opposition. With and Ryan and his off-field distractions out of the picture, the Cowboys will look to regain their focus and prove doubters wrong in 2013. Their odds on winning the division in 2013 should actually improve with a new coach from the college ranks looking to rebuild in Philadelphia and a devastating injury suffered by Redskins rookie sensation Robert Griffin III. The New York Giants still loom large in the division, but the two teams have played each other pretty evenly in recent history, making them the two favorites to take the NFC East title.

Injuries also plagued the Cowboys in 2012. Miles Austin again struggled with various ailments that limited his production. Sean Lee, the heart and soul of their defense, suffered a season-ending toe injury in October. Romo’s safety valve, Jason Witten, was severely limited in the beginning of the season with a lacerated spleen he suffered during training camp amongst other injuries. Second year running back Demarco Murray also missed a large stretch of the year with a leg injury. Better health from these key contributors could go a long way for the Cowboys in 2013 who are now listed at 25-1 betting odds according to online sports books.

The outlook of the 2013 Dallas Cowboys has to look pretty promising. Better health from some key contributors should make the team more balanced and take the pressure off of Romo. A run at the conference title and Super Bowl are definitely within reach and probably more likely than the outlook in 2012. After the firing of his defensive coordinator, the onus falls squarely on the shoulders of Romo and Head Coach Jason Garrett in 2013. While both men prepare to prove that they can take this Cowboy’s team to the next level, fans can enjoy casino slot games like Pigskin Payout or many others at www.iphonecasino.co.nz. With a great soundtrack that will remind fans of NFL Films, fans will be amped to call their own plays and even pick the receivers they wish to target when trying to win the jackpot. Sure, nothing beats real NFL action, but Pigskin Payout is a great way for Cowboy fans to begin preparing their resumes in case Jason Garrett fails and ends up on the chopping block next. If the slots are a little too risky for you then don’t despair as online casinos offer many alternatives, pretty much anything you can think of in a land-based casino would be found here. Games of slots are based purely on luck, but games such as Poker are decided by the player who is the most skilful at the game. Professional poker tournaments are all over television nowadays whereas other casino games are not. The reason is that you can practice poker enough to become a winner; online casinos cater to those who wish to do this by offering free tables which can be played as much as you like before laying any money down.

Close

But not cigar. That describes the Cowboys the last few years, as it did on Sunday. A poor drop on a two-point conversion blew the game for the Cowboys.

8-8

The Cowboys were 8-8 last year and will go 8-8 this year. They aren’t a bad team, but a notch below the Eagles and Giants.

Jerry’s World Looking the Same as Ever

Heading into the 2011 National Football League season the Dallas Cowboys were among the sports betting favorites to contend for the NFC title. The hype around the Cowboys is always over the top and this year was no different despite the fact that the 2010 season that was touted as the first time a team would ever play a Super Bowl on its home field instead turned into ashes as coach Wade Phillips was fired in midseason, Tony Romo was injured for most of it, and the Cowboys finished in disgrace.

Jason Garrett served as interim coach after Phillips was canned and got the full time gig because the Cowboys at least tried harder than they did under Phillips and because owner Jerry Jones would remain in total control of the team. And therein lies the real problem.

Since “The Win Machine,” Jimmy Johnson, departed Jerry’s World after the 1993 season that ended with a second consecutive Super Bowl win the Cowboys have never been the same. Sure, Barry Switzer did win a 1995 title with the team that Johnson built but the team was in decline and has never reached the same level that they did under Johnson. Johnson simply couldn’t stand working for Jones anymore and left despite the fact that he had a shot at Vince Lombardi’s modern record of 3 consecutive NFL championships (1965-67).

Dallas remains a maddeningly inconsistent team that one week looks “super” and the next week looks inept. The Cowboys have split their first 6 games on the schedule and are coming off a 34-7 annihilation of the hapless St. Louis Rams at Cowboys Stadium. The problem of course is that Dallas lost the two previous games prior to that and made costly mistakes in the process. Romo has been up and down with a 10/6 TD/INT ratio. He was spectacular in a Monday Night home win over then undefeated Washington as he rallied the team that was being killed by the mistakes of younger players. Then, just when everyone bought into the media hype about Romo finally maturing as a leader he went out and helped blow a 27-10 lead at home to the Detroit Lions in which he was intercepted 3 times and failed to engineer time consuming drives to protect the lead as Dallas was stunned in a 34-30 loss.

So far for the Cowboys it has been the old adage about how the more things change; the more things stay the same. Jones is the same and until he hires a true football man to run things the results are unlikely to improve significantly, even in the weakened NFC East.

Dallas Cowboys 2011 Preview

The Dallas Cowboys were a completely different team with Wade Phillips opposed to Jason Garrett at the helm. Under Phillips they appeared unfocused and lackadaisical. With Garrett in charge, however, the Cowboys were determined and regained some focus, even with Tony Romo out of the lineup. Now, with Garrett and Romo back with a fresh start, the Cowboys look to rebound after last year’s disappointment. Gone from the team are headaches Roy E. Williams and Marion Barber, but also linemen Marc Colombo and Leonard Davis. Doug Free was re-signed and Tyron Smith was drafted in the top 10. Smith is an athletic lineman, but needs to add bulk to his slight frame. The line is a work in progress right now, but it is believed they will be ready to go by opening day and hopefully protect Romo better. Romo will have his young guns Miles Austin and Dez Bryant rearing to go as well as the always consistent Jason Witten at tight end. The X-factor for the offense is running back Felix Jones. Jones, always a home run threat, was underutilized during the Wade Phillips regime, but really took off under Garrett. He could be poised for a huge year.

There was not a lot of activity on the defensive side of the ball during the off-season. Marcus Spears was re-signed at defensive end and linebacker Bruce Carter was drafted out of North Carolina. Carter is a very good athlete, but is raw after missing time with suspension during his college tenure. He will be groomed by incumbent starter Keith Brooking with the possibility of taking over next year or in case of injury. The major acquisition for the defense was defensive coordinator Rob Ryan. If Ryan is anything like his brother, Rex, expect the Cowboys to take a leap forward from their underachieving ways. Dallas definitely has the talent to be a very good defense with Demarcus Ware, Mike Jenkins, Terrence Newman, Jay Ratliff, Anthony Spencer and company, they have just lacked the focus and discipline to put it all together.

With a pair of new coaches at the helm the Cowboys expect to contend in the NFC East, even with the so-called Dream Team over in Philadelphia. A new found focus coupled with the embarrassment of last season could make the Dallas a very tough out no matter who the opponent is this season. Look for Dallas to contend for the division title or one of the wild card spots in the NFC.

Cowboys’ Fans to Witness Choke of a Season

The word reverberates in his mind following every heart-breaking, season ending defeat: Choke. When you look up choke in the dictionary, a picture of Tony Romo’s face comes up, and all you see is that smug grin that makes us Eagle fans hate on him so much. Choking is all he’s ever done in the clutch, and for the life of me, I don’t know how anyone in their right mind can actually put the Cowboys in the Super Bowl conversation entering this season. Sure, they will make the playoffs. Heck, with the amount of talent they have on both sides of the ball, they should win the division handily. And as the Eagles will almost assuredly be eliminated from contention by season’s end, at least I can sit back and enjoy watching Romo conjure up yet another creative way to blow an 11-12 win season for the Dallas Cowboys. Things just seem so much easier during the regular season, huh Tony?

Let’s think back to Romo’s first ever playoff start…you remember, right Cowboys fans? The game where Romo drove the Cowboys all the way down the field to set up the would be go ahead field goal, then botched the snap on the field goal attempt? And then there was the 44-6 loss to the Eagles on the final day of the regular season, and of course last season, when Romo was absolutely manhandled by the ferocious Minnesota defensive front. Well, news flash, Tony…it’s not easy to win playoff games in the NFL, so stop crying. You are to blame for the Cowboys failures over the last few years.

I will say, however, that I commend the job done by Jerry Jones in the last few months. He’s been able to overcome all the hardships in his life and avoid being drunkenly videotaped saying something outrageously stupid to a complete stranger. Cowboy fans, you should be proud.

Prediction: Dallas will finish 12-4 and lose in the second round. And yes, I will have my popcorn ready.

Cowboys Are Predicted to Win the NFC East Again

In the next few weeks leading up to the beginning of the 2010 NFL season, I will be making predictions for every division in both conferences. I am starting off with the always tough NFC East, where every team in the division has a chance to be over .500. I am starting off with who will finish last in the division and work my way up to the division winner.

1. Dallas Cowboys: The Cowboys should repeat as division winners this season. After going 11-5 last season, the Cowboys will probably be around that same record this season. With the emergence of Miles Austin, the Cowboys are a dangerous team. Tony Romo to Miles Austin is what you would hear at least eight times a game last season when you watched a Cowboys games. Austin’s speed is unstoppable, no one can catch up to him. Because of Austin’s speed, he will probably be double covered and sometimes tripe covered all game. This will help all of the other aspects of the Cowboys offense, especially Jasn Witten, he should find a lot of open space down the middle of the field. Then of course there’s the Cowboys thee-headed monster in Marion Barber, Tashard Choice, and Felix Jones at running back. All three of these guys could be starters on other teams.
The Cowboys will need their offense to carry the load this season because their defense is aging and getting slower. The Cowboys have one of the top offenses in the league and it should make them division winners for their second year in a row. The Cowboys will probably finish the season at 11-5.
