Cowboys news: Sean Payton picks Cowboys to beat Buccaneers

Sean Payton Picks Cowboys To Beat Bucs - Author,

Ex-Saints coach Sean Payton is siding with the Cowboys on Sunday.

Payton not only picked the Saints to win the NFC South, he believes the Bucs will lose at Dallas on Sunday night.

Payton seems so impressed by Dan Quinn’s development of the Cowboys defense and how a Quinn defense is so tough. Keep in mind Brady took apart Quinn’s Atlanta defense during the Super Bowl for the 2016 season, and a season later Brady marched into Atlanta and had a 23-0 lead early in the fourth quarter against the Falcons. And of course, Brady had no great issues with the Dallas defense under Quinn last season.

The Bucs will be “pretty happy” with two wins in their first three games, Payton said as he looked at the Bucs facing Dallas, New Orleans and the Packers to the start the season.

Cowboys Could Reunite With Former Playmaker, Says Analyst - DJ Siddiqi,

With receiver depth lacking, the Cowboys remain a favorite to reunite with former wide receiver Cole Beasley.

According to a list compiled by Bleacher Report’s Kristopher Knox, the Cowboys’ “best free-agent option” remaining is none other than former wide receiver Cole Beasley. Dallas currently has a shortage of viable veteran receivers, with CeeDee Lamb the only healthy playmaker who has caught a touchdown pass from Dak Prescott.

Knox argues that the Cowboys’ assortment of injuries — Michael Gallup remains sidelined and James Washington is out until October — could make a reunion with Beasley sound very appealing.

“The Cowboys parted with Amari Cooper and Cedrick Wilson Jr. this offseason,” said Knox. “Michael Gallup is still working back from a torn ACL, Jalen Tolbert is a rookie, and free-agent addition James Washington (foot) is on injured reserve.

Dallas could use an experienced pass-catcher to bolster its receiver room, and former Cowboy Cole Beasley would fit the bill. He previously spent three seasons with quarterback Dak Prescott and can play inside and outside—much like Gallup.”

Footage of Jason Peters slamming ‘bandwagon’ Dallas Cowboys fans might not sit well - Matt Baldwin,

Jason Peters, ex-Philadelphia Eagle and now Cowboy, had some choice words for the Cowboys in 2018.

A clip on social media has been dug up by Pro Football Talk that shows Peters in his Eagles days in 2018 talking about the Cowboys and more importantly their ‘bandwagon’ fans after their resurgence in 2016.

Now whether or not these were his ‘true’ feelings or if he was just trying to placate to the Eagles crowd and playing into the rivalry, we may never know, but it will be interesting to see if Cowboys fans are willing to forgive him for what he said.

Coach Dan Quinn on Dallas Cowboys ‘Fastest’ Defense; Enough to Stop Tom Brady, Bucs? - Zach Dimmitt,

Dan Quinn, Cowboys defensive coordinator, is praising the Cowboys defense as ‘fastest’ and ‘longest’ group he has coached.

It takes speed - both mentally and physically - to lead the league with 34 takeaways, six defensive touchdowns, and 26 interceptions.

And in his first year with the Dallas Cowboys last season, that’s what coordinator Dan Quinn was able to orchestrate. It was the first time in team history that the Cowboys led the league in takeaway/giveaway ratio, a top-five marked they had hit most recently in 1998.

Now, Quinn isn’t hesitating when pinning the elite speed and size of this defense against any unit he’s seen or been around.

“It’s probably one of the fastest and the longest in terms of safeties, linebackers with this kind of size and this kind of length,” he said.” This group I’d put up with anybody in terms of the speed to go play.”

Colin Cowherd Breaks Down How Jerry Jones Has Been Turning The Dallas Cowboys Into The Raiders - Cass Anderson,

Colin Cowherd is comparing the Cowboys to the Raiders and Jerry Jones to Al Davis.

“I think the (Dallas) Cowboys are turning into the Raiders when Al Davis got old. Al Davis and Jerry Jones are very similar.

They’re mavericks, contrarian, street fighters, visionaries, and then you start getting into your 70s and you start believing your press. And you’re not quite cognitively as quick. And I think Jerry’s had multiple missteps in the last several years, things he’s said that he’s had to backtrack on.

And I thought at the end of Al Davis’ reign, he really romanticized… He really lived in the rearview mirror… And I feel very much that way with the way Jerry Jones handles Zeke. As if it’s a running back league… As if you want your running back to be the biggest cap hit.

And I look at Dallas right now and I think they’re dangerously close to becoming the last 10 years of Al Davis’ Raiders. I think what saves them is the Division’s so damn awful. But I thought Philadelphia had a really, really good offseason.”
