First week of offseason news and notes


It’s been a little over week since the Dallas Cowboys were eliminated from playoff contention and so starts the offseason.  With the offseason starting while the playoffs are still in full swing, there is not a whole lot going on at Valley Ranch other than evaluations of the talent and play from this past year’s 8-8 season among some of the writings on the team website.

The first story of today was a spin of the Pro Bowl but an All-Opponent team of the players that played at a high level against the Cowboys.  Check out who they have at each position.  It is a good read and quite enjoyable from a football fan’s perspective.  Read here.

And last but not least, I was able to find an article that chronicled who they thought were the worst head coaches in the NFL.  As luck would have it, only one had ties to the Dallas Cowboys.  Read to see who it was they thought was so bad.

The top four stories on our own website today talk about various topics including giving Jason Garrett the power he needs to make his own coaching decisions.
