The Quarterback Test

0ap1000000130276

Every once in awhile, I like to see how stats compare to the perception of players. Today we are going to look at six franchise quarterbacks in the NFL and how they have performed since 2011. Take a look at these stats and choose your quarterback. Can you name one of these? The filled in chart is at the very bottom of this page: Realize that not all stats are created equal as some teams … Continue reading

Did The Cowboys Steal Anthony Hitchens In The Fourth Round?

Anthony Hitchens

Think back to the fourth round of the NFL Draft in May. In the two previous days, the Dallas Cowboys had selected Zack Martin and Demarcus Lawrence and most draft “experts” were raving about the Cowboys draft so far. And then, the infamous fourth round came about and the Cowboys selected a player most people didn’t know and it reminded people at how bad the Cowboys have truly drafted in that round in the last … Continue reading

Film Room: The Dallas Cowboys Pass Protection From Monday Night

Blitz 2

After Monday night’s loss, I posed this question to Dallas Cowboys fans; which Dallas player had a good game or played better than you thought they would? And there were a few correct answers. Henry Melton, J.J. Wilcox, Jeremy Mincey, etc . But for the most part, this was a team loss. Dropped passes, fumbles, penalties, missed tackles. You name it, Dallas did it. But the most frustrating part of the game, for me at least, … Continue reading

Week 9 Fantasy Football Preview

We’re now halfway through the NFL season, which means we have roughly 4-6 weeks left of the fantasy football regular season. It’s crunch time. Your league’s trade deadline may be passed, but if it hasn’t, it’s time to make the final moves to prepare your team for a shot at the postseason. It’s time to separate the men from the boys, and the faint of heart from the die-hard fantasy football gladiators. Week 9 is … Continue reading

Tony Romo Has Been Elite Since His Contract Extension

New Orleans Saints v Dallas Cowboys

  When the Dallas Cowboys signed Tony Romo to a massive contract extension in 2013 (which I believed they had to do), the narrative suddenly changed for Romo and the Cowboys. Since he was now being paid top money, he needed to perform like a top quarterback. For a while, that contract looked like it may be one of the worst in NFL history. After two back surgeries and a terrible outing by Romo versus the San Francisco 49ers, many … Continue reading

Ben Roethlisberger vs Tony Romo

nfl_3panel_580

In 2010, the Dallas Cowboys started the season going 1-7 as they lost Tony Romo for the season and any hope at a playoff birth. They finished the year at 6-10 with Stephen McGee playing quarterback in the final game. In the same year, Ben Roethlisberger led his Pittsburgh Steelers to the Super Bowl where they eventually lost to the Green Bay Packers. Since then, the Cowboys and Steelers have mirrored each other in so … Continue reading

Film Room: Lance Dunbar’s Third Down Catch

635489109684570002-USATSI-8139128-168380666-lowres

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

Fantasy Football Week 7 Preview

NFL: Pittsburgh Steelers at Cleveland Browns

Week 6 featured the return of Tom Brady and LeSean McCoy to fantasy goodness, and it also showed us again that the Redskins are really missing RG3, because Kirk Cousins isn’t the real deal. We lost some more key players last week, and we have new players to monitor going forward. Hopefully your team has been performing well and week 6 resulted in a win for your teams. Study up for week 7 and keep … Continue reading
