Dallas Cowboys Pre Season Game 1- Things to watch for


Howdy ya’ll!!

What a crazy off season it has been for the Dallas Cowboys and their fans! Forget everyone else but we certainly did a lot of work to discuss needs and came out looking pretty good.

The only big question that remains, the elephant in the room … is how will we be at Running Back?

Well we won’t find out much to answer that question in the first preseason game against the Chargers as the top three running backs will not be playing.

We will get to look at the kid from Stephen F. Austin university Gus Johnson who is a “bowling ball” type of runner as insider Mike Fisher describes him.

This is a guy that could break out of his shell and show some really special things or he could crash and burn and be lucky to even make the practice squad. He will get a good amount carries tonight so lets watch and see if he can produce anything worth while.

I am very excited to see what our starters on defense can do , we know Greg Hardy is planning to “ease” his way back into football so who knows how many plays he will get in but it’ll be interesting to see how this D-Line upgrade has worked out for us.

I’m also very interested to see what Byron Jones has in store for us , if the D-Line can hold up to make our D-Backs look better we could see some special moments throughout the entire defense.

A player that has got a lot of attention is rookie WR Lucky Whitehead, the staff and writers have been all over this kid and they believe he can be a very special player .. we have a solid number of young rookies and he could be the standout among them all but Randy Gregory , La’el Collins and Byron Jones may have something to say to that.

This first preseason game is not about the score board, technically. There will be game time situations that cause the score board to become important but we want to see the talent on the field and what can happen, don’t get butt-hurt if the Cowboys lose but we want to come away feeling confident in the additions and off-season work that this entire staff and team has put in.

Don’t forget, after last years first preseason game those crazies at ESPN were calling the Cowboys the  worst team in the NFC.

We also didn’t win a preseason game last year and still did pretty well.  I’ve been waiting for this since Dez caught it, and it’s here.

Take it, leave it… or throw it back at me.

My Two Cents: The Training Camp Fight….


My two cents……..

A few of my followers on Twitter yesterday what did I think about the Dez Bryant and Tyler Patmon training camp “fight”.

Look things like this happen at every training camp every year. This is a non issue and it was just two teammates who’s competitive nature got the better of them.

The two hugged it out afterward and kept it moving. I know all the other national media outlets will make it bigger than what it was but hey it is the Dallas Cowboys. Everything we do makes the news wire. I can’t wait for this season to start!!!!

Dallas Cowboys Bring In RB Gus Johnson For Mini Camp Tryout


The Dallas Cowboys brought in running back Gus Johnson from Stephen F. Austin for a mini camp tryout.  Johnson, was the 2014 Southland Conference Player of the Year at SFA.  Johnson an East Texas native (Gilmer) was also a four-time All-American selection.

 

Draft Profile (via NFL.com)

 

STRENGTHS

Well-built with thick bubble and powerful legs. Shows necessary power to rip through arm tackles and churn out additional yardage after contact. Has delayed burst once he gets to second level. Bow-legged runner with wide base and adequate balance through contact. What he lacks in explosiveness he makes up for in grit. Produced at consistent level over last three seasons.

 

WEAKNESSES

Hip tightness is a concern. Unable to take wide track on outside zone and then one-cut sharply without noticeable gear grind. Lacks foot quickness for sudden, lateral cuts to make defenders miss.

Doesn’t seek out opportunities to send a message with aggressive acceleration into tackler. Play speed to perimeter inconsistent. Marginal production as pass-catcher. Very little ability to protect the passer.

 

Career Stats and Awards

  • SFA’s all-time leading rusher with 3,907 yards.
