Film Room: Lance Dunbar’s Third Down Catch


For the most part, Lance Dunbar has been a non-factor for the Dallas Cowboys this season. Prior to the Seattle game, Dunbar only managed to have 84 yards on 16 total touches. For a player the Cowboys treated with “kid gloves” Dunbar had many questioning why he was even on the roster. But Dunbar made a game changing play on Sunday, late in the second quarter that helped Dallas change the momentum going into halftime. … Continue reading

Steelers Need To Unleash Their Offensive Potential


It’s no secret that Todd Haley is a fan of conservative play calling – something he has excelled at throughout his career. And Big Ben has taken fewer big hits as a result. However, there comes a time where you need to loosen the ropes on the Steelers offense.

Dez Bryant’s Targets Through Five Weeks

It should be noted that I consider a drop by Bryant any ball that hits one or both of his hands that is dropped. On Sunday, I credited Bryant with three drops and two uncatchable passes. But Bryant has … Continue reading
