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

  • Three-time All-Southland Conference selection.
  • SFA’s all-time leading rusher with 3,907 yards.
  • Southland Conference Player of the Year in 2014.

Cowboys WR Dez Bryant Goes To Twitter To Voice His Opinion


 

The No Fun League Strikes Again


The NFL canceled the National Fantasy Football Convention headed by Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo. Tony broke the news to his fans via his Twitter account.

 

Romo’s teammate Dez Bryant wasn’t to pleased with the NFL’s decision to pull the plug on the convention and had this to say via his Twitter account.

June is among us, and Brandon Carr is still here.


 

A man who fans probably do not have the right amount of respect for is Brandon Carr. At the end of the 2014/2015 season he started playing lights out. No, he has not played to the level of the salary he has made, but he has been solid over the past few years we’ve had him and gets way too much heat than he deserves.

In fact, Carr leads the Cowboys defense in snaps played for 3 straight years. His 3,219 snaps is 877 more than the next guy. He has been consistent in my opinion, and if you want to run him out of Dallas you might want to stop and ask yourself why. If the Cowboys were in a salary cringe, then maybe the front office would have asked him to take a pay cut, instead of being a June 1st cut.

A reporter asked Carr earlier today: “Have the Cowboys talked to you about your contract?”  And Carr replied “You talk to me more about it than they do.” So ultimately thus far, it seems Carr is the ultimate winner this offseason, keeping all his money, unless something unexpected happens. Carr has also talked about being a mentor to Byron Jones, the Cowboys athletic number one overall pick who shows alot of versatility and could probably line up at safety if he was asked to.

That is ultimately a win/win for the Cowboys.

Drafting Byron Jones number one Overall and adding Corey White this offseason as insurance, along with Morris Claiborne’s recovery, and Scandrick’s break out year, and a young Tyler Patmon who has shown alot of upside, you can guarantee that will motivate Carr to prove everyone wrong and boost his confidence.

Overall, the secondary has been somewhat of a weak spot for the Cowboys looking at all the earlier years, but a good pass rush and alot of competition at the position will bring a spark to the club and make it a fun battle and make everyone better.

Emmitt sees “One-Two punch” with Dallas Running Backs


(Image Credit)  http://imgkid.com/darren-mcfadden-girlfriend.shtml

 

Emmitt Smith spoke to 105.3 the fan in regards to the running back situation looming over the Dallas Cowboys and what he said may just surprise you.

The Cowboys ignored the “running back needs” in this years NFL draft prompting them to stack this defense as that is clearly the main weakness within this team, going back to when they were unable to get to an injured Aaron Rodgers in a playoff game with weak pass rush.

This off season the Cowboys picked up Darren McFadden from Oakland at a cheap rate, and it’s fair to say Oakland does not have what the Cowboys do in the all pro offensive line.

The concern is if McFadden can stay healthy as he had issues in Oakland but he could shine here in Dallas now that he is with a team that can actually *ahem* “just win baby”.

The Cowboys seem ready to go with a running back by committee approach as reported by several insiders and seems to be a solid approach as it works fine with New England as they have proven.

When asked about the combination of McFadden and Randle on 105.3 the fan, Smith replied with:

“And [with backup running back Joseph] Randle, you can have a nice one-two punch. The one thing with McFadden, if he gets some of those running lanes that I saw DeMarco have last year, and it’s on — he can take it to the house.”

This may be the time McFadden has been wanting, where he remains healthy for 16 games and is able to go over 1,000 yards with some other running back help right behind him to help carry the load. Not to mention, McFadden  came from good ‘ole Arkansas and was undeniably incredible when he was there.

There is no denying that the Cowboys front office is being very careful and thrifty. This is not the old Cowboys team or staff, they are making the right moves and not cutting off limbs for players and working with what they have to  make the best team.

Now, it’ll be interesting to  see what this “one – two punch ” can do with this O-Line and what this defense will look like. If they can manage another top 5 offensive year with a top 15 defensive unit ( possibly better) the Cowboys are again a team to watch for.

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