Friday, September 22nd, 2017

A federal appeals court has set oral arguments for Oct. 2 in the NFL's bid to reinstate Ezekiel Elliott's six-game suspension over a domestic case in Ohio, meaning the star Dallas Cowboys running back will play at least two more games. The 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in New Orleans posted the notice Friday, clearing the way for last year's NFL rushing leader to play Monday night at Arizona and at home Oct. 1 against the Los Angeles Rams.

Low hit by Cowboys’ Noah Brown leaves Broncos’ Von Miller baffled

Thursday, September 21st, 2017

Denver Broncos linebacker Von Miller has been on the team's injury report this week with a sore knee that he believes could have been the result of a low hit from Dallas Cowboys wide receiver? On the Cowboys' second play of the game from scrimmage -- a run off left guard for no gain by Ezekiel Elliott -- Miller was on the back side of the play when Brown blocked him low. No flag was thrown on the play, but several Broncos players have privately said they believed the hit should have been penalized.

Cowboys’ Ezekiel Elliott says there’s no excuse for lack of effort

Thursday, September 21st, 2017

FRISCO, Texas --? Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott admitted he showed "bad effort" in last week's 42-17 loss to the Denver Broncos, during which he failed to track back on two interception returns. "I would say I was just very frustrated, but that's no excuse for the lack of effort I showed on tape," said Elliott, who was held to a career-low 8 yards on nine carries. "I just can't do that. Being one of the leaders on the team and being a guy that people count on, I can't put that type of stuff on film." Coach Jason Garrett addressed the poor effort by Elliott and other players at the team meeting on Tuesday. Elliott drew the biggest criticism, with Hall of Fame running back LaDainian

How Much Is Roger Goodell Worth to NFL? Jerry Jones Thinks Commissioner ‘Earns Too Much Money’

Thursday, September 21st, 2017

Amid legal wrangles and existential concerns over the future of American football, NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell continues to earn a fat wad of cash. ESPN reports that Goodell, who took over as commissioner from Paul Tagliabue in 2006, should finalize the details of a contract extension in the next few days or weeks after a meeting with the NFL’s “compensation committee” on Wednesday that consists of six franchise owners. Perhaps more intriguing than Goodell’s salary—$32 million earned in 2015 is more than Matthew Stafford, the NFL’s highest-paid player ever, will earn on average for the next five years of his contract—is the reaction of certain NFL owners to the news.

Steelers rookie JuJu Smith-Schuster delivered the best hit of Week 2 (and he’s a wide receiver)

Thursday, September 21st, 2017

Your favorite video of the week is back ... Disrespectful Blocks of the Week! This week, we have some treats for you. Two blocks from linemen and two blocks from the skill players! I LOVE the skill guys getting in the mix. Please, please, please, tweet me on Sunday or Monday when you see a block that needs to be reviewed for this video. I’m on Twitter. On to the blocks. Bravo to Steelers rookie wide receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster. This is a bone crushing block by a receiver which is normally seen by veteran wideouts who have played awhile. The Steelers must have known he was capable of this block, otherwise they wouldn’t have sent him into the hole like this. What a block. My favorite of the week.

Get your popcorn ready, NFL Network viewers.

NFL Panic Index 2017, Week 3: The Cowboys don’t look so elite right now

Wednesday, September 20th, 2017

The Cowboys were riding high after Week 1’s win over the hapless Giants. Then they lost to the Broncos in a 42-17 blowout, and it raises a fair question: Is this Cowboys team destined for yet another early exit from the playoffs? It’s become a hallmark of this Dallas team. The Cowboys haven’t made it past the Divisional Round since 1995, and last year’s 13-3 team lost a heartbreaker to the Green Bay Packers in divisional play after earning the top seed in the NFC and a first-round bye. Hopes were high for this team heading into the season. Dak Prescott and Ezekiel Elliott both had stellar rookie seasons, and Dallas boasts the best offensive line in the league. The team made moves this offseason

The Dallas Cowboys’ New World Headquarters Is Game-Changing

Wednesday, September 20th, 2017

“This wasn’t about dressing up the locker room,” says Charlotte Jones Anderson, daughter of Jerry Jones and the EVP and chief brand officer of her father's prized Dallas Cowboys. The “this” she’s referring to is The Star, the newly finished world headquarters of arguably the most famous—and valuable—sports team on the planet. The Jones family reportedly invested more than $1 billion of their own money in the project, which stands, gleaming in the Texas sun, on 91 acres in the Dallas suburb of Frisco, a half-hour drive north from downtown.

Jerry Jones defends Ezekiel Elliott’s lack of effort by pointing to other Cowboys

Tuesday, September 19th, 2017

Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott has become a lightning rod for criticism after a perceived (actual) lack of effort following a pair of interceptions on Sunday. Owner Jerry Jones has opted not to join in the criticism, at least not specifically. The most glaring incident happened when Broncos cornerback Chris Harris Jr. caught a tipped ball and took it the other way.
