This has been a notably dead off season for forum activity. I don't think Cowpokes are going to happen.

Unless we only have 1 award.

The Jeff Heath Award - for the guy that's not the best but he's the best we've got.


We didnt do any of the fun NFL team draft things this year. Kinda sucks, but I guess Im okay with it, have had a bunch going on.


Yeah this is usually the time. I've thought about it but with the particular deadness of this dead season we'd be lucky to get 5 teams.

Which would be cool because the speed of the draft, but we would need to modify it. Maybe only choose players from NFC teams. That way maybe our teams could still have potential weaknesses despite only 5 GMs in the fantasy draft.

I'm going to do a top 50 cowboys of all time list. One post a day, so that'll be something to pass the time I guess. Y'all can rip on it all you want

It isn't a proper Dallas offseason without losing a starting DE for a month.

As long as the weapon is registered it should be fine.

I don't think it's that big of a deal. I love Irving but he's just a rotational player, albeit a very high-end one. We need to figure out what Tapper can do and he'll get to play a pretty big role for us against some teams with questionable offensive tackle situations in September.

Hopefully this is the last year this happens because it's starting to become a bit of a running joke.

Didn't he get suspended for taking something the NFLPA gave him the ok to take?

Basically. The NFL has an app which is supposed to list the banned substances. His wasn't on it, and got popped anyway because the NFL isn't consistent with keeping its list up to date. Basically, a player can "fail" a test for a substance that isn't even on its banned substances list. Something similar happened to a few high profile players last year. It's total B.S.

Any NFL fan knows that Cowboys tight end Jason Witten has caught a lot of passes, but many may not realize just how high on the all-time career catches list Witten is. In fact, within the first couple games of the regular season, Witten is likely to be the No. 4 receiver in NFL history.

Witten currently ranks seventh, with 1,089 career catches. But hes only 14 catches away from passing three Hall of Famers: No. 6 Tim Brown (who has 1,094 catches), No. 5 Cris Carter (1,101) and No. 4 Marvin Harrison (1,102). If Witten catches passes this season at the same rate he did last season, hell move ahead of Harrison and into fourth place all time in Week Four.

That is absurd, the NFL is really becoming a joke in some regards, but they are making so much money, I don't see how some of these obviously stupid policies will ever change.
