Are the Dallas Cowboys going to draft (fill in the blank) QB with the number four pick in the 2016 NFL Draft? With what we know now, no. Not a chance. Isn't happening. Move along.

Can Garrett Lead Cowboys To Super Bowl - When? Published 2/10/2016 in Cowboys NationRomo and Garrett Eagles

Today's article is brought to you by longtime reader "Football Mensa" who posed a great question in comments. When I noticed my reply was taking on Novella status I made the change and decided to put the answer here. Up front I must mention Mensa has been a long time critic (though a fair one in my opinion) of Jason Garrett. He's not made it... read more→

Carolina Panthers Fans Turn Out Published 2/9/2016 in Pro Football TalkLinePanthers Stadium Fans

Last night if you were a Carolina Panthers fan Bank of America Stadium in uptown Charlotte was the place to be. The Panthers fans turned out "en masse" to welcome their team back to town and it was attended by more than a few Carolina faithful. You have to give a fan base this loyal it's props.

Every year there are "Dallas difference makers", players who change the narrative, become part of the strategy, step up. In 2014 there were more than a handful and for all the right reasons.

Denver Broncos & Peyton Manning - Destiny or Afterthought Published 2/6/2016 in Pro Football TalkLinePeyton Manning

It's "Super Bowl L" or "Super Bowl 50" as the "leave no fan behind" NFL has decided to forgo the usage of Roman numerals evermore. Will they also be leaving behind the thought of Peyton Manning as perhaps the best ever QB to play the game? It's true. Manning has much more riding on this game than "just" a Lombardi trophy. Aging, injured, arm... read more→

2016 Patriots Offseason - More Business As Usual Published 2/6/2016 in Pro Football TalkLineBlacksmith

The Patriots lost to the Broncos by two points in a hell of a game at Mile High Stadium. Time to blow it all up and figure out how to get the job done next time, except that isn't how they do things in New England.

There are "preferred destinations" one has on "their" list. When being inteviewed for the upcoming 2016 NFL Draft most prospects will downplay their preferred destination ... "I just want to play in the NFL." "I will be happy to wear the uniform of any team that wants me." "I just want to help the team and, the good lord willing" .... and so... read more→

Cowboys Puzzle Pieces Published 2/3/2016 in Cowboys NationFootball Puzzle

Super Bowl is in a week but there is still plenty going on at and around Valley Ranch. Some of the bigger things mean very little and some of the little things can mean quite a lot as we try and make sense of some of the Cowboys puzzle pieces.
