December is reputed to be a scary month for the Dallas Cowboys. Yet, since 2006, the Cowboys are 13-6 in December under a very specific circumstance: when a running back scores a TD.
The Fan has learned of another piece of news that the Cowboys hope will impact the Thursday night outcome in Chicago against the Bears
They’ve come to be called “FishTips,’’ and with the guidance of insiders at Valley Ranch, they help me “gameplan’’ for this week’s game
Dez Bryant’s desire to be a ‘Cowboy for life’ has not faded. But on Wednesday he made it clear that through the frustration of waiting on a contract extension, he’d like to make certain that commitment is reciprocated.
But on Sunday, the Cowboys simply needs to handle lowly Jacksonville, which they did by a score of 31-17.
On the eve of kick off, a massive collection of Cowboys quotes from the Saturday Fan Forum outside of Wembley. This is extensive, raw and “every moving blade of grass,” as I know the Fan Fan likes it:
Bruce Carter is…unsettled. His position as a starting linebacker for the Cowboys. His contractual future in Dallas, and his stomach in London.
Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo participated in the lightest of walkthroughs on Tuesday upon the Cowboys’ arrival in London.
Dez needs to be elite on the field. He’s the first to concede that hasn’t happened in two straight Dallas loses as he’s managed to catch passes for 30 yards or fewer in both games – a career-low mark.
When the Cowboys arrive in London on Tuesday in preparation for Sunday’s game against Jacksonville, they may need even more of Melton inside.
The bags are packed. The visas are being checked. The manifest for the Virgin Airlines flight that tonight will transport the Cowboys to London is full.
Saturday is designed to be a “light day” in the NFL but it is a big business day for the Dallas Cowboys.
