SHOULDABININ, Ariz. – Scratching my bald spot while wondering what is more improbable about these 2014 Dallas Cowboys.
That the Cowboys scored 30 points in Game 6 against Seattle, the team giving up the fewest points in the NFL this season. The 30 matched the most the Seahawks gave up all season long, and the Cowboys were the only team to total more than 377 yards against Seattle’s No. 1-ranked defense (401).
IRVING, Texas – The Super Bowl marks the final game of the 2014 NFL season, but before all of the focus shifts toward the offseason with free agency and the draft, let’s look back at the Cowboys’ best and worst moments, including the playoffs.
Staff writers David Helman, Bryan Broaddus and Nick Eatman offered up their opinions on some of the high points of the season and even a few of the sour ones.
Below are five safety prospects at the college level worth keeping an eye on:
Landon Collins, junior, Alabama (6-0, 215)
Should the Cowboys want Seattle to win the Super Bowl since they beat them in the regular season or does it make tougher to swallow? Would you upgrade at free safety in the draft with a first-round pick?
With 2014 in the rearview mirror, the staff writers reflect on some of the best and worst moments of this past season. Part 1 focuses on the wins and losses, key plays and injuries.
IRVING, Texas - On the eve of Super Bowl XLIV, the league will dole out some awards for the best players and coaches from the 2014 season. The NFL Honors show, hosted by comedian Seth Meyers, will highlight the best of the best and there is a good chance the Cowboys will have some representation.
The show airs Saturday, Jan. 31 at 8 p.m. CT on NBC with the red-carpet coverage airing live on NFL Network at 7 p.m.
But before the officials awards are announced, the writers of DallasCowboys.com offered up their picks on who should take home the hardware.
How long does it take to know if a OL player is right for your team? Guys like Weems and Wetzel have been here for a while. Do they stand a chance or not?
IRVING, Texas – Having had a chance to digest the tape of the Senior Bowl, here are some of my biggest impressions from the tape.
- In the practice sessions leading up to this game, I was impressed with the way Quinten Rollins of Miami-Ohio carried himself and was expecting him to have a big game. But if you asked me of all the North cornerbacks, which one played the best in the game, it was Steven Nelson of Oregon State.
In terms of intensity, there probably isn’t more of a difference in the NFL than a training camp practice and Pro Bowl practice. It’s night and day, which is about the same way you could describe the evolution of Tyron Smith’s progress since the last time he faced DeMarcus Ware on a daily basis.
It’s been a little while since I’ve taken a look at the landscape of the NFC East – alright, it’s been a long while. These are the types of things that happen when the Cowboys lock up the division with two weeks to play, not to mention make a playoff run.
But the offseason is finally starting to settle in for 30 of the league’s 32 teams. While the Patriots and Seahawks gear up to play Super Bowl XLIX on Sunday, we’ve already been inundated with questions about the Cowboys’ offseason.

I get sick to my stomach every time I watch the replay of the great "catch" Dez made against the Packers. Do you think the NFL will eventually change the rule even though there was no guarantee Dallas would have won or lost?
Not exactly a Throwback Thursday, but this Wednesday marks the 19-year anniversary of the Cowboys’ win over the Steelers in Super Bowl XXX at Sun Devil Stadium in Arizona.
The Cowboys became the first team in NFL history to win three Super Bowls in a four-year span, after winning consecutive titles after the 1992 and 1993 seasons under Jimmy Johnson.
The intensity that Watt showed was similar to what he had seen from him when he battled Smith during that early October meeting between the Cowboys and Texans at AT&T Stadium.
Before the Cowboys’ team plane had even landed back in Dallas following the loss to the Packers in the NFC Divisional Round, national reports surfaced that Rod Marinelli would be leaving Dallas and heading to Tampa Bay.
More than anything, the reports were based on assumption – that because Marinelli hadn’t re-signed a contract with Dallas, plus the fact that he remains close friends with Bucs head coach Lovie Smith, would be reasons enough for him to leave the Cowboys and join Tampa Bay, a place he coached 10 seasons from 1996-2005.
