Dallas Cowboys Weekly Poll Results

Here are the results of last week’s poll question which asked…

Which of these players would be missed most, if they missed the season opener?

I don’t think it was much of a surprise that 62% of you chose Terence Newman over Terry Glenn, who came in a distant second with only 30%. The Cowboy’s secondary has been a source of great concern this off season and pre season. For the Cowboys to succeed on defense, they will need a healthy Terence Newman to be effective.

Well it’s that time of the year again where we ask you the fans how you think the Dallas Cowboys will do this season!

By now, most of you have already looked at the new schedule and have a few ideas about how tough or how easy the Cowboys will have it this year.

Last year the majority of you were dead on accurate with the number of wins you predicted. Let’s see how good you can do this time!

Here is the question…

How Many Regular Season Games Will The Cowboys Win This Season?

1. 12 or more games

2. 10-11 games

3. 8-9 games

4. 6-7 games

Dallas Cowboys Weekly Poll Results

Hi Cowboys fans!
Here are the results of last weeks poll which asked the question:
How Long Should Our First String Players Play In The Last Two Pre-Sesaon Game?

Only 12% of the voters thought that the Cowboys’ regulars should play past the second quarter.
An overwhelming 89% of the voters said to “yank them” by the end of the first half. It’s probably best that the Cowboys play it safe from here on out. I’m actually hoping that our guys on offense don’t play more than one series on Thursday.
This week, we were wondering how you felt about some of the players that are already going through some injuries of their own.
Which of the these players would be missed most if the miss the season opener?
1. Terry Glenn
2. Terence Newman
3. Greg Ellis
4. Anthony Fasano
It’s kind of an interesting question to think about because at least three of them bring something big to the table. I have an idea on who I would pick, and I look forward to seeing if I am on the same page as most of you.

Where Have All the Cowboys Gone

It’s funny how people get so offended and hurt when the team loses (understandably, I’m one of the guilty). It’s a preseason game, not a playoff game. The good thing is we can learn from the experience and it isn’t going to hurt us one bit. Of course it’s nice to win every game no matter the caliber, but sometimes it helps not to go into the season with a "big head" or overblown confidence when you start playing teams like New England and Chicago just to name a few.

I do believe that Gramatica has lost his job as starting kicker, especially if the rumors are true that he pulled a hamstring Saturday night. Missing an extra-point kick is really not the way you impress your coach when you’re battling for the starting position. Of all teams, we certainly know how much a missed kick can hurt!

If you’re wondering when to expect Greg Ellis back on the field, good luck finding the answer. No one knows or can even speculate when to expect the veteran linebacker’s return. Jerry Jones is determined that Ellis will be back, at least that’s what he is saying in front of the cameras. I’ve heard a third medical opinion is being sought. Expect to see rookie Anthony Spencer on the field in his place when the season kicks off.

Several other injured Cowboys missed the game on Saturday. Anthony Fasano, Terence Newman and Terry Glenn did not participate but are all expected to start in the season opener. Terence Newman will likely feel pain throughout the season after being diagnosed with a torn plantar fascia in his right heel. Anthony Fasano is sitting out after receiving a sprained shoulder in the second preseason game. And last but certainly not least, Terry Glenn is still recovering after undergoing arthroscopic knee surgery during Training Camp.

As the Cowboys prepare to travel to Minnesota for the final preseason game, we should keep a close watch on the roster. Several players will be cut tomorrow, bringing the roster number down to 75. I don’t think we will see much from the first string on Thursday because September 1st the team will be trimmed down to the standard 53-man roster. It’s always interesting and certainly unpredictable to see who will go and who will stay.  


Cowboys News: Glenn Will Miss the Final Two Preseason Games

It has been reported that Coach Wade Phillips has ruled out the return of Terry Glenn for the final two preseason games. When Glenn had arthroscopic knee surgery on August 1st, he was projected to be back for the final preseason game, however that no longer seems probable. Coach Phillips said Glenn will return to practice after the August 30th game. Glenn hasn’t had any setbacks in his rehab and the team isn’t worried about the veteran’s lack of practice.

"No, it’s not a real concern," Phillips said. "He knows what to do and he knows how to do it and as long as he’s ready physically, I think he’ll be ready to do it."

As for the rumors going around that Terry Glenn has re-aggravated his knee, Coach says he has no idea where that information came from. Glenn should be ready to go for Week 1, September 9th against the Giants.

Remember the Alamodome

The final Training Camp workout at the Alamodome is scheduled for tomorrow at 11 a.m. Afterwards, the team will head back home to get ready for Thursday’s Preseason game against the Colts. The game will be nationally televised on FOX beginning at 7 p.m. Central. Broadcasters will be Troy Aikman and Joe Buck along with Pam Oliver on the sidelines.

There is concern about the heat. The temperature is expected to be in the mid to upper 90s and in Texas Stadium it could be over 100 degrees. There are 85 players available so I wouldn’t expect to see any particular player on the field for too long. The trainers plan to keep the guys hydrated and have talked to them about heat exhaustion and the effects of dehydration.

Overall Training Camp went really well. Alot of fans came out and enjoyed seeing the Cowboys in action. There were also several visits from past Cowboys such as Deion Sanders, Troy Aikman and Lee Roy Jordan. Other than a few injuries, the worst being Terry Glenn’s knee, everyone had nice productive workouts. It will be good for the ‘Boys to go up against an opponent wearing another jersey for a change!

Have a safe trip home ‘Boys and we’ll see ya on the big screen on Thursday night!


Training Camp News: Updates on Terry Glenn and Terrell Owens

Wide receiver Terry Glenn will be out for at least 2 weeks including the first 2007 preseason game due to a tiny cyst on the back of his right kneecap. Glenn left practice on Sunday with knee pain, and an MRI on Monday came back negative. However, on Tuesday he had successful arthroscopic surgery on his right knee. Jerry Jones was sure that the 12 year veteran will be back before the regular season begins.

Terrell Owens also sat out of today’s practice when the coach’s decided to give him the day off to rest his legs. Owens still came to practice and gave a few of the younger players some tips and then watched his team in action.

With the two veteran starters out today, Sam Hurd, Patrick Crayton and even Miles Austin got alot of workout time with the first string during Tuesday’s practice. Head coach Wade Phillips and staff have been very impressed by the young receivers so far in Training Camp. 


Crayton For Another Year

Patrick Crayton signed the $1.3 Million Tender to continue to be the Cowboys third receiver behind Terrell Owens and Terry Glenn. He played in all 16 games last season and finished his third season as a Cowboy with career high stats.

Crayton completed 36 catches for 516 yards, along with 4 touchdowns in 2006. He also contributed 85 yards on 11 punt returns. With his numbers increasing every season, the Cowboys may be looking at a long-term deal with him next year.

Terry Glenn and Terrell Owens both have 11 years of experience under their belts. Glenn received his roster bonus in March and Jerry Jones assures us that Owens will receive his this summer. Needless to say, the Cowboys should have their eyes on some young receivers while planning for the future and Patrick Crayton is an excellent contender.
