With the dual injuries to quarterback Tony Romo and the inability of his backups to do much of anything, there has been some speculation that the Dallas Cowboys might finally invest a high level draft pick in a passer. Jared Goff and Paxton Lynch would be likely targets if the Boys were to go this route, but at least one beat writer thinks that Dallas will put off the shopping for another year.
"It definitely would mean a whole lot [to reach 1,000 yards again], something I would definitely like to have. It's been a long season, so it's one of those things that you just have to keep grinding and grind the rest of these games out." - Darren McFadden
I imagine it would be special for McFadden. Only once in his career has he eclipsed the mark, and at this late stage of his time in the National Football League finding that kind of success after what he has battled through would be a remarkable achievement.
Many of us have made the assumption that Hardy was a one year rental from the start. The Cowboys were able to get him cheap, and as a strictly business deal it was a reasonable risk to sign the pass rusher. The only question has been, is the baggage he brings worth the expense. The Jones family decided that it was, especially for the price. Scales tells us why he is not such a good bet to be back next season, and it is only partially due to the fact that he will command a decent sized paycheck.
Morris Claiborne came to the Dallas Cowboys injured and now it looks like he could be leaving Valley Ranch the same way he arrived. Mo will be out this weekend and there is a better than average chance he will miss the season finale as well. Should he miss the rest of the season it will be a total of 25 out of a possible 66 games he was sidelined. You have to wonder if he had come to the Cowboys with less of a draft pedigree, would Claiborne still be on the roster?
With the deed done as far as the 2015 season, the crew of characters over at the mother ship turn an eye toward where the Cowboys go from here
