Dallas Cowboys Lose More Then Just A Player In Ezekiel Elliott

The Dallas Cowboys found out this week they will be without their start running back Ezekiel Elliott for at least six games. This is a huge blow to the Dallas Cowboys playoff aspirations. Elliott was suspended six games for breaking the conduct policy which includes domestic violence. The punishment for a domestic violence infraction is six games. Now Elliott said he will appeal the verdict and this could go many different ways. It's possible in the end it could end up in the courtroom. Would the NFL reduce the suspension that is something that is also possible.

What does this men for the Dallas Cowboys? Yes, the season will go on, but the Cowboys lose one of their best players on the offensive side of the ball. Elliott is valuable in a number of ways that cannot be judged. He helps keep the Cowboys defense off the field by moving the chains and controlling the ball. The Cowboys defense is one of the worse in the NFL and Elliott helps them get less snaps on defense meaning they are fresher when the fourth quarter arrives.

This means with Elliott suspended the defense will have to be on the field more often. That is something that does not bode well for the Dallas Cowboys. Yes, Elliott will be missed, but he has no one to blame but himself. The NFL takes a hard look at domestic violence these days. Even if you are not charged with a crime they will still suspend you. If you do not believe me ask Ezekiel Elliott he is living proof of it.

Football Gods Turn Tables On Dez Bryant And Cowboys

The Dallas Cowboys seen them get the benefits of some calls against the Detroit Lions last week, but this week the football gods turned the tables on the Dallas Cowboys. Dez Bryant made a catch on fourth down to set up the Cowboys on the Packers one yard line, but a challenged was made and it was overturned. Bryant did come down and did lose a little control of the ball which was against the rules. Many Cowboy fans will be upset, but that is what happens in close games it comes down to a few plays here or there and this game was no exception. It was a close call, but that is not why the Cowboys lost the game.

Green Bay and Aaron Rodgers played better in the second half and made enough plays to win the game. In close games it many times comes down who plays the best at the end. Both teams fought hard and it could have went either way. It is a shame that both teams could not have won the game, but you can only have one winner. The Dallas Cowboys had a good season, but just like teams before them they found out beating the Packers and Aaron Rodgers at home is very tough. Green Bay moves on and now will head to Seattle to take on the Seahawks for a chance to go to the Super Bowl.

Why Dez's catch wasn't a catch in Cowboys-Packers

Dallas vs Green Bay The Winner Is.......

The Dallas Cowboys and Green Bay Packers hook it up today in what should be a very entertaining football game.  Weather should be cloudy with a chance for snow. This should favor the Packers, but when you talk about the playoffs that weather should not effect the Cowboys to much.  Dallas must control the ball and score at every opportunity they are given. Tony Romo must protect the ball and limit his mistakes. DeMarco Murry and Dez Bryant will need to come up big as well. As far as the Cowboys defense they must make Aaron Rodgers and the Packers earn their points.

Green Bay will go as far as Aaron Rodgers will carry them. Rodgers is excellent in the cold and at home. Beating Rodgers at home is tough. The Cowboys do have the weapons to do it, so turnovers will be key for Rodgers. Ball control and limiting mistakes is something that Rodgers does very well. Defensively, the Packers cannot let Murray or Bryant hurt them. Romo will make some plays, but you cannot not let him get confident. It seems when Romo gets on a roll he is tough to stop.

I like the Packers in this game because they are at home. Aaron Rodgers rarely loses at home. Take the Packers at home by a score of 34-27.

Jerry Jones Now Wishes Johnny Manziel Was A Dallas Cowboy

You know this has to be killing Jerry Jones that he did not get to draft Johnny Manziel. Jerry Jones is a riverboat gambler and usually he gambles, but this time around people around him would not let him gamble. Was it a wise decision not to draft Manziel? That really is a hard question to answer these days because you really never know for a few years.

Jones was in a tough position as he has Tony Romo and bringing in Manziel would have just caused friction. The team made the right decision, but if Manziel does real well Jones will be kicking himself for a very long time to come. In the NFL you never know how things will work out. One time you can find a gem and sometimes you will not. The verdict is still out on Johnny Manziel.

Is Tony Romo Still The Answer In Dallas?

Tony Romo has had a roller coaster career in Dallas and since he started his career there always have been rumblings he is not the guy to lead the Dallas Cowboys to another Super Bowl. With another season in the books should Dallas rethink the direction they are headed. Moving up in the draft is an option, and grabbing a  quarterback is not out of the relam for Jerry Jones.

The truth is Tony Romo is a good quarterback and is paid well to lead the Dallas Cowboys. Jerry Jones believes in him and it looks like he is going to ride this horse for awhile. Cowboys fans are tired of seeing no results though and that is never a good thing. Jerry Jones needs to surround Romo with not so much better players, but ones that play more consistent.

There will be times the offense plays great and other times in the game they cannot even get a first down. Dez Bryant is a talented guy, but he is only one guy. The Cowboys need more play makers if Romo is going to be more successful. Maybe Jerry Jones will grab some play makers in the draft for Romo, but I doubt it he does not draft real well it seems.

Cowboys Miss Playoffs Again Not Romo's Fault This Time

For the last few years everyone wanted to jump on Tony Romo for failing to get the Cowboys to the playoffs. This season the Cowboys again had a chance at the playoffs only to see a late interception end there chances for the post-season. Kyle Orton played in place of Tony Romo who had back surgery and was unable to play for the Cowboys.

Kyle Orton did not play bad, but the interception killed him at the end. You cannot put this all on Orton as he did not have a hand in the other Cowboy losses. The bottom line is the Dallas Cowboys should have never been in this position in the first place. If they would have take care of business like they should they would have already clinched a playoff berth.

Many questions now surround the Dallas Cowboys and there coach Jason Garrett. Will Garrett be back as Cowboys coach. It's hard to say as you never know with Jerry Jones. Either way something must change as the Dallas Cowboys cannot continue to miss the playoffs.

Is Tony Romo The Most Overpaid QB?

Tony Romo has been in the league a few years and maybe he is worth the 108 million dollar deal, but as I look at the bigger picture I say HELL NO! Romo has comparable numbers to most of his peers. The one glaring weakness is wins in the playoffs and getting your team there on a consistent basis. Romo's leadership has also been brought into question as well. There has been times you wonder what Tony Romo is thinking as he runs the Cowboy's offense. My question is why in the heck give it to a guy who in the off-season seems to put football secondary.

Now I do hear this season Romo is more committed to football, but talk does not win football games. Romo needs to show it on the field of pay as well. The Cowboys owner gave Romo more money they he deserved and hopefully it will not come back to bite him. Only time will tell but this could be another million dollar mistake that Jerry Jones has made.

In Jerry Jones defense what other options did he really have left. He is stuck with Romo and he knows it. He did not want it to look like he made a mistake, so he is going to home Tony Romo finally can get it right. For The Cowboy's sake I hope he is right.

Does The Dallas Cowboys Still Have A Chance At The Playoffs?

It has been a up and down season for Tony Romo and the Dallas Cowboys so far in 2012. This does not mean you should count them out just yet. The Dallas Cowboys beat the Cleveland Browns in overtime by a score of 23-20. Yes, it was not really very impressive, but a win is a win. People never judge you on how you got the end result as long as you got it. The Dallas Cowboys head into Thanksgiving week at 5-5 and a chance to improve on that Thanksgiving Day when they play the Redskins.

The Cowboys have a tough upcoming schedule, so it will not be easy to make the playoffs, but you never know. Another loss could really hurt their chances, so they need to remain perfect to make the playoffs. Everyone knows the Dallas Cowboys are talented, but they just never are able to produce on the football field like they should. If they did we would not be talking about making the playoffs, but winning a division title.

The Dallas Cowboys are a team that sometimes is hard to figure out that's for sure. At times, they look like they can beat anyone, and other times they cannot beat the worse teams in the NFL. If they ever could come into a season dedicated to winning they would be very good. I don't know why it is such a struggle for them, but with all the egos that could have something to do with it. Right now they will be happy to sneak into the playoffs and so will Cowboy fans as well.

How Much Longer Can The Dallas Cowboys Stick With Tony Romo?

The Dallas Cowboys have some serious decisions coming into the season. What direction they want to go, but most of all how much longer can they go with Tony Romo at quarterback. Jerry Jones feels he is the quarterback to lead them to the Super Bowl, but others are not so sure he is the answer to the Cowboys issues. Romo has played well at times, but has also cot them games in the process. Tony Romo just does not seem the right fit in my mind for the Dallas Cowboys at quarterback.

One of the biggest problems the Cowboys have is they do not have anyone to take Romo's place. Jon Kitna, Kyle Orton, and Stephen McGee are not names that will scare any NFL defense these days. This means the Dallas Cowboys will need to have Tony Romo be their No.1 quarterback for the time being. At some point though the Dallas Cowboys may need to decide Tony Romo is just not what they need. The sooner they make this decision I think the better the Dallas Cowboys can get in the future.

Marion Barber Retires From The NFL At Age 28

When Marion Barber played football for the Dallas Cowboys it looked like we would see him for a long time to come. Barber had some great runs and it seemed everything was going well for him. Injuries and getting cut by the Cowboys landed him in Chicago, but when the Bears signed Michael Bush, Barber decided that he had seen a enough and called it a career. Barber combined quickness with punishing running that left defenders feeling they just got hit by a truck.

Marion Barber signature run was probably against the New England Patriots. It is a run that had to be seen to believe. I posted it below for everyone to check out. Marion Barber is only 28 years old, so maybe he will return you just do not know anymore. Check out the video below of the amazing run he had against the Pats.

Don't Blame Tony Romo He Does Need Help

Over the last few years I have watch Tony Romo make some amazing plays and I have also seen him make some horrible plays as well. This is what Cowboys have when you watch Tony Romo play for four quarters. Is it time to move on from Tony Romo? Many Cowboy fans have asked me that question and I always give them the same answer no way. There are many reasons the Dallas Cowboys should not blame all their troubles at the feet of Tony Romo.

Here are the many reasons Tony Romo is going to be around for awhile. The first reason is Jerry Jones is paying him a lot of money, so he will be given a chance to take the Cowboys to a Super Bowl. The second main reason and many Cowboy fans don't like to hear this one it is not all Romo's fault. It is true the quarterback is usually the one that takes all the heat and reaps all the rewards. In Romo's case he has not had as much help as he should have during his time as a starter.

There are four main reasons Tony Romo has struggled as quarterback of the Dallas Cowboys. The offensive line, wide receivers, running backs, and his own ego. Let us look at each one of these. Quarterbacks that do well in the NFL that have a offensive line that has been together for a long time. Without an offensive line nothing else will work well. Dallas has never had an offensive line for Romo that was consistent and that has hurt Romo. It should be the responsibility of managers (who have graduated from sports management colleges) to create an excellent team.

Another area that the Cowboys have struggle in recent years is a running game. Yes, the Cowboys have had 1,000 yard rushers, but it always seems year after year they get away from who did well the year before. Until the Cowboys get a consistent running game Romo will continue to struggle. Wide receivers have been the same as the running game as well. Besides Jason Witten the Cowboys really have not had a wide receiver that Romo could rely on.

Lastly, Tony Romo has not realized what it means to wear the Dallas Cowboys Star and be a Cowboys quarterback. he is getting better at it, but still has a long way to go. Combine all of these things and you can see why Tony Romo Struggles. In my book though he still is the guy the Cowboys need to lead them.

What's Wrong With The Dallas Cowboys?

The million dollar question these days is what is wrong with the Dallas Cowboys? Is it the owner? Coaching? Or could it be a combination of everything. Pinpointing the problems with the Dallas Cowboys is very tough as you could pick out a number of areas. I will try to go over a few and see what changes need to be made in my opinion.

Let's start with the coach Jason Garrett whom Jerry Jones personally picked to coach his Dallas Cowboys. I like Jason Garrett as an offensive coordinator as he has a great mind for the game. Being a head coach though is not his forte. Another guy who comes to mind is Wade Phillips. He has a great feel for the defensive side of it, but is not a head coach. I think eventually the Dallas Cowboys will need to make a change.

No matter how much Cowboy fans would like to see a smaller role for Jerry Jones it will never happen. He owns the team and will have his hand in everything. I do not always think that is a good thing, but that's the way it happens to be.

The players are another area that the Cowboys also need to work on as well. Dallas finished 8-8 and only beat one team with a .500 record or better the San Francisco 49ers. Talent wise the Dallas Cowboys are not that bad. The problem many times lies in the effort they give. Years ago, it meant something to wear a Dallas Cowboys uniform, but today's players do not seem to care. It's more about collecting the check than winning games. Until players realize they have a huge responsibility being a Dallas Cowboy they will continue to struggle.

As you can see there are many problems with the Dallas Cowboys and no easy fix. It will take time to get the Cowboys back to where they once were. Jason Garrett is not the coach they need and the players need to make more of a commitment. Jerry Jones will always be there, so that is something you can't change, but you still can fix the other two.

Can Tony Romo Save The Dallas Cowboys Season?

Tony Romo all season long has had a lot of pressure put on his shoulders, but nothing like it will be this weekend against the New York Giants. Tony Romo is expected to play even though he has a banged up hand. All season long Romo has made a habit of making mistakes that has cost his team. This week it will be Tony Romo the Dallas Cowboys turn to for a miracle. Romo has the ability to play well and can get the job done, but he cannot do it alone.

Romo will need help from others if he is going to be able to play the whole game. Wide receivers and the running game need to take some of the pressure off of Romo. Many times this season the Dallas Cowboys have screwed up at the end and it has cost them games. Now they are hoping a banged up Tony Romo can breath life into them and get them into the playoffs. The one thing about Tony Romo is you never know what your going to get. If you get the good Tony Romo the Dallas Cowboys will be heading to the playoffs. If the bad one shows up it will be a long and tough off-season in Cowboy land.

Dallas Cowboys In Must Win Situation Against Bucs

The Dallas Cowboys are in the playoff hunt, but cannot continue to have mental lapses if they hope to make the playoffs. This week the Dallas Cowboys travel to Tampa to play the Bucs on the NFL Network at 8:20 pm Saturday Night. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers season has not been what they had hoped for so far. Knocking off the Dallas Cowboys though could help make it a lot better for them. Playing in front of an National audience is something the Buccaneers will like.

For the Dallas Cowboys they have had many mental lapses and questionable moves that have their owner and fans shaking their heads. This is a must win for the Dallas Cowboys who still have the Eagles and Giants to play. If Dallas wants to make the playoffs they must continue to win games. A loss could really hurt there chances at the playoffs. Getting a win in Tampa will be a good start for the final three games of the regular season.

Can Romo And The Cowboys Derail The Patriots?

Tony Romo has not had the kind of season he expected, but that can change with a win over the New England Patriots. A loss here is something the Cowboys really cannot afford right now. After letting the Detroit Lions roar back after they had a big lead is something Cowboy fans do not like one bit. For Romo he has melted down in the fourth quarter of games and he cannot let that happen against the Patriots.

The Patriots will come with a lot of pressure and Romo better be ready for it. Can the Cowboys beat the Patriots? They can if Tony Romo has better ball security and makes smart decisions. If he does not it could be another long day for Romo and Dallas Cowboy fans everywhere. This is a game that could turn the Cowboys season one way or another. it's all in Tony Romo's hands and what he does could determine the Cowboys fate rest of the season.

Is It Time The Cowboys Think About Replacing Tony Romo?

The Dallas Cowboys and their fans have to be scratching their heads once again as Tony Romo let them down again. After building a huge lead against the undefeated Detroit Lions Tony Romo started giving the Lions free gifts in the form of interceptions that were turned into touchdowns. It seems Tony Romo has made it an art in losing games for the Cowboys the last few years. Is it time Jerry Jones and the Dallas Cowboys think about replacing Tony Romo?

Tony Romo has proven to put up great numbers, but is he the guy that can lead the Cowboys to a Super Bowl. The way it looks right now he just cannot handle the pressure when it really counts. How many more losses will take before Jerry Jones has seriously consider making a move. Yes, Romo has proven he can win games, but he has not proven he can take the next step.

Until Romo can start finishing games Jerry Jones may want to start looking for other options. Yes, Cowboys fans deserve better and not knowing when Romo will meltdown is never a good thing. Unless Romo, starts finishing games it is time for Jerry Jones to make some changes in the future.

Tony Romo Plays Hurt And Shut's His Critics Up

Last week everyone blamed Tony Romo for the Cowboys opening season loss, but those critics cannot have nothing but good things to say about Romo now. Playing with a fractured rib Romo was able to rally the Dallas Cowboys to a 27-24 overtime win over the San Francisco 49ers on the road. Romo hit Jesse Holley on a 77-yard completion on the Cowboys’ first play of overtime that set up Dan Bailey’s winning 19-yard field goal. Just a week ago Romo was the goat, but now for awhile this should shut-up a few of his critics who questioned him and his ability to make plays.

Romo completed 20 of 33 passes for 345 yards and was in a lot of pain after the game. The San Francisco 49ers have to feel they let one get away. This is a game they probably should have won, but give the Cowboys and Romo credit for fighting back and getting the win in overtime. It's wins like this that can define your season. The next thing the Cowboys have to worry about is Romo's health for his next game.

Tony Romo Has Another Cowboy Meltdown In Loss To Jets

Tony Romo can look like the next coming of Roger Staubach, but at times he can also have meltdowns that cost the Dallas Cowboys games. Last night, he had another one of his meltdowns as the Dallas Cowboys lost to the New York Jets by a score of 27-24. It looked like the Cowboys and Romo were going to start the season out right, but Romo fumbled and threw an interception in the final seconds to seal the Cowboys fate.

Throughout his career Tony Romo has made it a habit of costing his team games. Last night, his teammates came to his defense, but how much longer can they do that when he is costing them games. It would be okay if Romo had led the Cowboys to a Super Bowl, but he has not. Everyone knows in the league that Romo buckles under pressure and against good teams it always seems to happen. There is going to come a time when Jerry Jones is going to have to rethink his decision about Romo being the guy to lead the Cowboys. If losses keep piling up like this changes may need to be made.

Marion Barber And Roy Williams Going To Get Cut By Cowboys

Now it should not come as a surprise that the Dallas Cowboys will be getting rid of some of the players they really do not want or basically pay anymore. One of the players that have been rumored to be going for a number of years is Marion Barber and he will be one of those that is scheduled to be cut. Wide receiver Roy Williams kicker Kris Brown, and offensive lineman Leonard Davis will also be let go.

Cutting Barber will save the Cowboys 4.75 in cap space. Barber will not have a problem finding a team to go too. He is a back that will give you all he can and someone will grab him. The last few years Marion Barber has been on the chopping block and now he will be gone. Wide receiver Roy Williams is another guy the Cowboys will be letting go as he never lived up to their expectations. The Cowboys also will cut some linemen, and it looks like Tony Romo could be on his back side more again. Sometimes you have to wonder what teams think when making cuts beside money. Below is one of Marion Barber's greatest runs.
