Cowboys DT Antwaun Woods Has Surgery for Torn Labrum

One of the breakout stars of the Cowboys season has already gone under the knife less than a week into the offseason, David Moore of the Dallas Morning News reports.

Defensive tackle Antwaun Woods had surgery on Thursday to repair a torn labrum. Woods suffered the injury in the Cowboys’ loss to the Los Angeles Rams in the NFC divisional round.

“Whole season of bully ball got me like…,” Woods said in an Instagram post ahead of his surgery. “Pray for ya boy.”

After entering training camp as the fourth-team nose tackle, Woods quickly worked his way up the depth chart. By the time the team headed back to Dallas, the player added via free agency in May was working with the starters.

Woods finished the regular season with 34 tackles, one and a half sacks and nine quarterback pressures in 15 starts.

Cowboys Part Ways with Offensive Coordinator Scott Linehan After Five Seasons

The Dallas Cowboys made somewhat shocking news on Friday, as the team fired offensive coordinator Scott Linehan after five seasons on the job.

If you look the latest football predictions suggest this has to come as a surprise, considering what Linehan was able to accomplish over his time with the team with stars like Dak Prescott, Ezekiel Elliott and now wide out Amari Cooper.

Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett discussed the move, claiming it was a ‘mutual decision’ which is hard to believe based on the Cowboys coming off a season in which they won a playoff game and won the NFC East.

“This was not an easy decision because of how highly we regard Scott Linehan as a football coach and as a person. He and I had some really positive, substantive and open discussions which took place in the latter part of this week, and we ultimately agreed that it would be in the best interest of all of the parties involved if we were to make a change at this position,” Garrett said.

“This was very much a mutual decision, and there was a great deal of common ground and shared understanding between both of us during our meetings. Scott has had an incredibly positive impact on our football team.

“He has been instrumental in the development and success of a significant number of our veteran and younger players. He is an outstanding football coach, a great friend and we wish him and his family nothing but the absolute best moving forward.”

Reports say that the Cowboys have been looking at outside coordinator candidates for several days to take the spot that Linehan will leave behind, so this move obviously has been in the works.

Some say that Dallas’ offense isn’t creative enough for the linking of owner Jerry Jones, and with playmakers like Prescott and Elliott, they should be even better than what they are.

Jones got a chance to see a high-powered offense last week in the team that beat the Cowboys knocking them out of the postseason in the Los Angeles Rams, and he had to like what he saw from the likes of head coach Sean McVay, and would love to get a creative mind like that to run the Cowboys offense.

With a new voice coming in to run the show the offense should look different in 2019, but there’s always fear that the new voice won’t mesh with the big names on the teams’ offense.

Whoever the team decides on they have to make sure to get along with the threesome of Prescott, Elliott and Cooper, three players that will be the core of the Cowboys for hopefully a long time to come.

Look again for the team to try to find a young creative voice that will try to not only get the most of the threesome mentioned above, but the same with the teams offensive line.

Report: Cowboys to Give Head Coach Jason Garrett an Extension

The Cowboys are going to keep head coach Jason Garrett, which isn’t a surprise considering the team not only ended up winning the NFC East, but also have already gotten to the second round of the postseason.
Reports from the NFL Network state that “Garrett is likely to sign an extension whenever the offseason comes for the Cowboys, NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported on Saturday morning. Dallas will make a strong attempt to lock him up.

“I’m told the Cowboys are positive that Garrett is going to be their coach going forward,” Rapoport said on Good Morning Football: Weekend, “and after the season when this all ends, they do intend to begin negotiating a long-term extension with Garrett.”

Garrett is under contract with the Cowboys through the 2019 season following an extension he signed in 2015 for five years and $30 million

The Cowboys rebounded from a rough start to the 2018 season, won the division with a solid second half, and beat the Seahawks in the NFC Wild Card game last weekend to advance to play the Rams tonight in Los Angeles in the Divisional round.

Cowboys Chatting About Possibly Bringing Back Safety Barry Church

With three games remaining in the regular season and the Cowboys appearing poised to make the playoffs, they could be looking at a reunion with a former player, the Dallas Morning News reports.

NFL Network’s Jane Slater reported via Twitter that the Cowboys are discussing the possibility of bringing ex-safety Barry Church back to Dallas.

Church played for the Cowboys from the 2010-16 seasons and has spent the last two seasons with the Jaguars before they released him on Friday.

Report: Cowboys Coach Jason Garrett Wants Retired TE Jason Witten to Come Back and Help the Team

In an interesting story today about the Cowboys and head coach Jason Garrett, Adam Schefter of ESPN is reporting the head coach has been asking an old friend, tight end Jason Witten, to come out of retirement and help the team as they look to get to the postseason.

Here’s the report from ESPN:

Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett has made multiple attempts this season to get former Dallas tight end Jason Witten to come out of retirement and help the Cowboys in their postseason push, league sources told ESPN.

Witten has resisted those overtures, some of which came in recent weeks, as tempting as it might have been to help his former team, sources said.

Dallas has struggled at the tight end position because of poor performance and injury, and Garrett was convinced that Witten could step right back in and become another asset on an offense that has come alive in recent weeks since the acquisition of wide receiver Amari Cooper.

Witten, however, ultimately is committed to the Monday Night Football booth and to his new craft as a broadcast analyst, according to sources.

Witten, 36, retired from football earlier this year after spending his entire 15-year career with the Cowboys. He finished his career second in NFL history in receptions (1,152) and receiving yards (12,448) by a tight end, trailing only Tony Gonzalez in both categories.

Can the Cowboys Send a Message to the Rest of the NFL with a Win in New Orleans Tonight?

The Cowboys season has taken a turn thanks to a huge Thanksgiving win at home over the Washington Redskins, but also due to the division they play in, the NFC East, and the injury to Redskins quarterback Alex Smith.

Coming into Thursday’s game, most sports books, such as bet-bonuscode.co.uk has the Saints as a favorite, a big favorite like 7 to 7.5 points to take out the Cowboys and win their 11th game in just 12 tries.

For Dallas, they have plenty of confidence going into this game, as defensive end DeMarcus Lawrence already threw down the hammer this week, stating “We’ve been talked up as being the difference, they’re going to have to match our intensity, (expletive), for 60 minutes straight. If you hit (expletive) in the mouth they ain’t doing what they regularly doing, and putting up 50 points, and they start to get a little distressed. So now you got them where you want them at and then (expletive) choke they (expletive) out.”

It is interesting to think that the Saints might have more pressure coming into this week 13 game, but the Cowboys, who are still looking at trying to be the top dog in the NFC East, have just as much pressure on them heading into Thursday’s battle.

They have to find a way to get pressure on New Orleans quarterback Drew Brees, who is having not only a historic season, but is also getting a lot of help from that offensive line that Lawrence has called out.

They have to make sure to tackle two elusive Saints running backs in both Alvin Kamara and Mark Ingram, two players who have been playing well, and making it long days for the first 12 weeks of the season for opposing defenses.

Kamara is on a pace for over 20 scores, and could be the biggest and best touchdown scorer in the game today. He has a nose for the end zone almost like no other player in the league.

If Brees and Kamara get going early against the Cowboys, it could be a long night in New Orleans.

On offense, the Cowboys best formula for a win would be to use a ball control on offense and make sure they get a big game from their offensive line against the Saints.

Ezekiel Elliott and the offensive line got the Cowboys off to a good start against the Redskins last week, scoring on their opening drive, and having that type of success would go a long way to getting a win on the road.

Look for a fun shootout between two teams that have their eyes set on bigger and better. It won’t be easy, but if the Cowboys can get a road win in New Orleans, it would set a huge message to the rest of the NFL.
