Former Players McNabb and Moss Take Shots At Cowboys Coaching Staff

Jason Garrett

Recently during a roundtable segment filmed for FOX Sports Live, former NFL players Randy Moss and Donovan McNabb joined Brian Urlacher for the nine-minute video analyzing the Cowboys, Jon Machota of the Dallas Morning News reports.

McNabb, the former six-time Pro Bowl quarterback for Philadelphia, explained why he thinks the problems with the Cowboys are not the players on the field.

“I think for the Dallas Cowboys it’s much more than just what we see from the defense and offense, I mean, let’s go upstairs,” McNabb said.

“Let’s talk about the coaching staff. How do you go from Monte Kiffin and Rod Marinelli being a position coach to [Marinelli] now being the defensive coordinator and Kiffin being like a position coach? And it’s the same on the offensive end. You had Jason Garrett calling plays, supposedly, then Callahan.”

Rod Marinelli High On The Cowboys Defense Entering Camp

Rod Marinelli

Rod Marinelli likes what he saw from his Cowboys defense in the spring, Todd Archer of the ESPN Dallas reports.

The defensive coordinator liked that he has more players along the defensive line. He likes the linebackers’ “movement skills.” He likes how cornerbacks Brandon Carr, Orlando Scandrick and Morris Claiborne can play man-to-man. He likes the growth J.J. Wilcox made at safety opposite Barry Church.

“I think there’s something to prove a little bit,” Marinelli said. “Not something to prove from last year, but there are some guys coming here off the street with something to prove. There are some guys in contract years with something to prove. There are some guys coming out saying, ‘I want to be a better player,’ who have something prove.

“You get that many guys wanting to prove something, then you can become better. Right now what I like is how hard they’re going after their craft.”

“The first thing you do is you take it as coaches and players and you take accountability for it,” Marinelli said. “And no excuses. Now we look forward. Now it’s about the expectations of this group and with expectations you have to execute. It’s that simple. That simple, yet that hard.”

Cowboys Come To Terms With Veteran OL Uche Nwaneri

Uche Nwaneri

The Cowboys have signed veteran offensive guard Uche Nwaneri, Aaron Wilson of the National Football Post reports.

The veteran OL previously visited the Cincinnati Bengals and Tennessee Titans, but chose to come to Big D to play for Jerry Jones and the Cowboys instead.

Nwaneri, 29, had been with the Jacksonville Jaguars for the past seven years before being released this spring.

Nwaneri was scheduled for a $3.775 million base salary and was due a $1 million roster bonus.

Cowboys Have To Make Dez Bryant A Happy Camper With a New Deal

Offensive playmakers.

When your talking about sports and about the NFL in specific, you need offensive playmakers if your going to compete for a title.

When in comes to the Dallas Cowboys, there’s no doubt that their biggest offensive playmamker is wide out Dez Bryant. Like it or not, as Bryant goes, so do the Cowboys.

So if the Cowobys are going to be good in 2014, they had better start working on trying to make Bryant, who is due to be a free agent after the this season, a happy and very rich player.

Bryant is set to make $1.78 million on the final year of his rookie contract. The wide out has already publicly stated that he wants to stay in Dallas, but it’s not going to be cheap to keep him around.

There’s six receivers in the NFL that are making $11 million per season. Calvin Johnson, Larry Fitzgerald, Percy Harvin, Mike Wallace, Dwayne Bowe and Vincent Jackson are the six, and other than Johnson, you can make the argument that Bryant is better than the rest.

Last season with 93 catches for 1,233 yards and 13 TD’s, he showed that he can dominate. Now it’s time for the Cowboys to reward him, and make sure he doesn’t reach free agency. They had better do it soon, as the longer it drags on the harder it may be to make him happy.

Is 2014 Make or Break for Cowboys QB Tony Romo?

Chicago Bears v Dallas Cowboys

The Cowboys always seem to be at the top when it comes to ‘SportsCenter’ and ‘NFL Network’ as far as being a team that gets a ton of pub in the NFL.

With that said, is 2014 a ‘do or die’ season for the team at the QB spot with Tony Romo under center? Romo is considered a QB that can lead this team to the Super Bowl by owner Jerry Jones, but he’s never been able to get past the NFC Divisional Round.

If the team doesn’t make the playoffs, what do they do with this roster and more importantly, with Romo in 2015?

Cowboys Select Notre Dame OL Zack Martin In First Round Of NFL Draft

Passing on QB Johnny Manziel, the Cowboys instead went with a player that will help on the offensive line – that being offensive lineman Zack Martin.

New Era Pinstripe Bowl - Rutgers v Notre Dame

Here’s the lowdown on Martin.

From: CBS Sports

STRENGTHS: Very good at keeping his feet underneath him while keeping his butt low to handle both speed and power. He does play with good quickness (but not explosiveness) off the snap, showing knee bend and core strength to anchor, as well as the lateral agility to mirror more athletic defenders.

He also shows better athleticism than you might think when blocking on the move, demonstrating above average straight-line speed to get to the second level, as well as the nastiness to bury his target into the ground.

WEAKNESSES: With less than ideal length and lateral range, Martin’s NFL future may lie inside at guard, where he never played in college. The move to guard is necessary because Martin does not possess great height, arm length or foot speed. He chucks his way back (rather than sliding) for an effective if not aesthetically-pleasing form of pass protection.

COMPARIES TO: Logan Mankins, OG, New England Patriots – Mankins has been one of the NFL’s most valuable offensive linemen since being selected by New England in the first round of the 2005 draft, and has anchored the Patriots’ front line with top-notch instincts, toughness and versatility despite lacking elite athleticism. Martin exhibits many of the same traits, and should draw first-round consideration.

Player Overview

Martin lined up at both guard and tackle at the Senior Bowl and routinely stymied the competition with quickness, power and overall technique.

Though Martin lacks the prototypical size of a modern NFL tackle, he has exhibited impressive technique and better-than-average strength, and after a strong Senior Bowl showing, many scouts believe he could not only play on the outside at the next level, but could do so very well.

Although all 39 of his college starts were at tackle, teams are looking at Martin mostly as a guard. He is short for a left tackle and perhaps not powerful enough for a right tackle. Regardless, he is a team leader who made a case for himself at tackle with a good showing in the Senior Bowl workouts. Frankly: Picking a position for him to play is the only issue. This smart, aware, two-time team captain with the most career games in Notre Dame history (52) can certainly play somewhere.
