Week 10: Dallas Cowboys vs Atlanta Falcons


Dallas Cowboys   

Dallas Cowboys (3-4)  vs.  Atlanta Falcons (7-0)

Quick Facts:

Series Record: Dallas leads the series 16-8.

Last Meeting (Dallas): October 25, 2009 Cowboys won 37-21.

Last Meeting (Atlanta): December 16, 2006  Cowboys won 38-28.

Series Streak: Cowboys won the last two meetings, and five out of the last seven.

Will the real Cowboys fans please stand up!


The Dallas Cowboys football team have begun a “Stand Up and Shout” campaign to encourage the Dallas Cowboys fans to get on their feet, get loud, and help the Cowboys defense get a stop during home games.

Being a life long Cowboys fan I find it sad and pathetic that it has come to this where the team has to ask its fans to get up and shout and be rowdy at the home games. That is one of the main reason I started my fan club TrueBlueNation.

Here is the “Stand Up and Shout” campaign with the email via ESPNDallas.com that pleads with all Dallas Cowboys fans attending the game on Sunday to get loud on third downs when the Giants’ offense is on the field.

Dear [Season Ticket Holder],

Sunday we need every Dallas Cowboys fan to get on their feet, get loud and help the defense get a stop! Starting this week against the New York Giants, we will have a new third down graphic on the video board and we want you to get involved in the game.

When you see the video graphic playing on the video board, get on your feet and get LOUD!  Together, we can make opposing teams dread coming to Cowboys Stadium.

If we all play our part, we can help give our Dallas Cowboys a true home field advantage.

Sincerely,
Dallas Cowboys Football Club

 

Will the real Dallas Cowboys fans show up for the game Sunday? Or will it be status quo?

C Phil Costa right knee limits him in practice.


 

Calvin Watkins of ESPNDallas.com reports after returning to the lineup from a back injury that cost him three games, starting center Phil Costa returned last week in the loss to Baltimore.

But Costa was listed as limited on Wednesday’s practice report because of a sore right knee. He injured the same knee in a game last season against the San Francisco 49ers. 

Costa being limited could be precautionary more than anything else.

If Costa is unable to play, it leaves some serious questions at center because Ryan Cook, who replaced Costa at the position, didn’t practice because of a hamstring injury.

Signs of Leadership


Will this be the year Romo leads the Cowboys over the hump?
AP

Is this a sign that Tony Romo is finally assuming a vocal leadership role on this team.

Here is his quote to ESPNDallas.com via Todd Archer:

“Well, it’s not about statistics, It’s about winning. That what the story is going to be written when it’s all said and done. It’s going to come down to whether we won or lost. That’s why you practice the way we do. That’s why you’re out there doing the stuff we’re doing, so that we can put our best foot forward and try to win. The articles are going to always be about winning and losing and that’s what the fans and players and all of us want to see. It doesn’t matter about any of the other stuff.”- Tony Romo

Bernadeau eyes a training camp return


 

Dallas Cowboys guard Mackenzy Bernadeau eyes a training camp return…

Calvin Watkins of ESPNDallas.com reports Bernadeau is out 12 weeks but has a goal of returning for training camp.

“Health is good coming off the surgery,” Bernadeau said through the raindrops Thursday. “Rehab is going real well, everything is going as planned. I’m just excited to get back as soon as possible.”

It was a tough situation for Bernadeau because the Cowboys signed him to a four-year $11 million contract to become an upgrade to the interior of the offensive line.

Guard Nate Livings was also signed in free agency by the Cowboys and the team took a chance on signing Ronald Leary as an undrafted free agent, another guard.

Offensive line upgrades were one focus this offseason for the Cowboys and Bernadeau, realizing this, wanted to help.

“That’s the way I thought about it,” he said. “I was disappointed it happened. You don’t want to be the new guy that comes in and (gets hurt). As a new guy that comes in I want to earn the respect of my teammates and be ready to get on the field. At the same time, I have to to get healthy. It’s better to play it safe and be ready for when the season (starts).”

OTA Notes via Todd Archer


 

Todd Archer of ESPNDallas.com reports-

The Dallas Cowboys held their ninth organized team activity of the offseason Wednesday and third open to the media, so we bring you a number of observations from the two-hour workout:

** S Gerald Sensabaugh did not practice because of a sore knee. Coach Jason Garrett said the decision to sit the veteran was precautionary.

** Tight ends coach John Garrett was in a walking boot during practice because of Achilles’ pain. He ran a 5K over the weekend (winning his age group, he added) and came up sore for the final half-mile.

** WR Dez Bryant was slow to get up after landing awkwardly on the ground after stretching for a Tony Romo pass. He did not appear to miss any practice time.

** You know DeMarcus Ware is ready for action when a team tries to run a toss to the weak side and he does not take a false step. Ware snuffed out such a play to DeMarco Murray during team run drills.

**With Mike Jenkins and Morris Claiborne not practicing, undrafted rookie CB Isaac Madison was taking turns with the first-team nickel and dime units.

** Unofficially Romo went 14-of-22 in team and seven-on-seven drills. His best throw came on a go route to Bryant, who sprinted past Orlando Scandrick for a would-be touchdown. On the first play of the next team period he hit Jason Witten for a touchdown as the tight end pulled away from a linebacker.

** CB Brandon Carr ended the first-team offense’s two-minute drill with a breakup of a Romo pass to Kevin Ogletree on fourth down. In seven-on-seven red zone drills, he broke up a slant to Dez Bryant.

** Kyle Orton went 13-of-21 in team and seven-on-seven drills. He was particularly effective in the red zone, hitting Andre Holmes for a touchdown on a perfect back-shoulder throw with C.J. Wilson in coverage.

** Undrafted rookie WR Tim Benford had two touchdowns in red-zone drills from Orton. The first came lined up in the slot and the second was a low throw to the back shoulder.

** Orton was 3-of-8 in the two-minute drill, but had one throw away and was victimized by a Raymond Radway drop. His fourth down throw to Cole Beasley down the seam was high.

Time to get it done.

Dallas Cowboys’ All Pro linebacker DeMarcus Ware sits down with ESPN’s SportsCenter and weighs in on the current talk of the window closing for the Cowboys.

“I don’t care what anybody else says. I think that each year it’s that time. You can’t wait until next year. You can’t think about what’s happened in the past. The time is now. I feel the same way each year.”- DeMarcus Ware via Tim MacMahon of ESPNDallas.com.

Wilber has pins removed from fingers.


Dallas Cowboys.com

Calvin Watkins of ESPNDallas.com reports that the Dallas Cowboys fourth-round pick outside linebacker Kyle Wilber said he had the pins removed from his right index finger Wednesday.

Wilber fractured his finger during the rookie minicamp and is unavailable to practice until possibly the veteran minicamp next month.

“All I can do is get mental reps,” Wilber said.

Wilber is wearing a plastic cast over his right hand while it heals. There is a possibility if he does practice at the veteran minicamp that he’ll wear a club, similar to the one Sean Lee wore last season.

Terrell Owens released


Tim MacMahon of ESPNDallas.com reports that the Allen Wranglers ownership stated that the team has parted ways with ex Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Terrell Owens.  Owens violated his contract and he was released and lost his ownership stake in the Indoor Football League team.

“It’s disappointing and unfortunate, but (he) could no longer be tolerated by the Wrangler organization.”Allen Wranglers owner Jon Frankel.

Owens refused to play in two of the Wrangler’s upcoming road games and no-show for a scheduled appearance at a local children’s hospital.

Window Closing?


AP

Is the Cowboys Championship window closing…….

According to Tony Romo it’s not.

Tony recently told Tim MacMahon of ESPNDallas.com

“It’s not closing,”  I think there’s a sense of urgency every year that you play, whether it’s your first year in the league or your 22nd.  You never know when all that stuff is going to happen, so you just play every year as if it’s an urgent day.  Forget about thinking about the end of the year or two months away.  You’ve got to get better today.  Whether you’re a rookie or an 11-year veteran around here, you’ve got to do that same approach.”

“It’s the same.  If it increases, then you didn’t do what you needed to do when you were younger.”
