  1. Cowboys' defense focused on 'small things'

    Dan Graziano

    There's a lot of change on the defensive side of the ball this year for the Dallas Cowboys. But to hear Anthony Spencer tell it, things are less complex under new coordinator Monte Kiffin than they were under his scheme-driven predecessor Rob Ryan. P...

  2. Breakfast links: DeSean Jackson, rapper

    Dan Graziano

    Washington Redskins He's missed so much time the last two years that it's easy to forget how valuable Brian Orakpo is. But the Redskins' 3-4 defense is built on the idea of bookend pass-rushers at outside linebacker, and Ryan Kerrigan can't do it ...

  3. Why are the Cowboys changing defenses?

    Dan Graziano

    On Thursday, I wrote a post in which I said it was time for Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones to start showing some level-headed leadership and explaining his offseason moves in a way that projected a coherent vision for the team and its future. Jean-...

  4. It's time for Jerry Jones to chill out

    Dan Graziano

    There's a reason so many of the NFL's coaching vacancies got filled this week. Next week is Senior Bowl, and it's time to get down to serious business. Coaches from every team will head to Mobile, Ala., to begin an offseason of evaluations. Some of t...

  5. What could Monte Kiffin mean for Dallas?

    Dan Graziano

    The man the Dallas Cowboys have apparently targeted to be their next defensive coordinator is Monte Kiffin, a man who would be 73 when next season starts, who has 26 years' worth of experience coaching in the NFL and who is known as the pioneer of th...

  6. Cowboys should get their story straight

    Dan Graziano

    Look, I like to needle Dallas Cowboys fans when they insist on the same old complaints about Tony Romo and about Jerry Jones being the GM and the general culture of overreaction and mopey negativity that seems to have enveloped them all. But the trut...

  7. Would Cowboys go 4-3 for cap reasons?

    Dan Graziano

    First thing I want to say is this: If the Dallas Cowboys fired defensive coordinator Rob Ryan because they wanted to switch from a 3-4 defense to a 4-3 defense and they don't already have Ryan's successor lined up, I think they're nuts. I don't think...

  8. Breakfast links: Will Cowboys play a 4-3?

    Dan Graziano

    Well, that was a busy night for the one division that doesn't still have a team playing, now wasn't it? Links. Washington Redskins There are few easy answers when it comes to handling an athlete's knee, and as Robert Griffin III heads for surge...

  9. What I think Rob Ryan's firing could mean

    Dan Graziano

    Well, it turns out Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones wasn't just blowing smoke when he said on the radio last week that things were about to get uncomfortable around Valley Ranch. If you're a Cowboys coach right now, you can't be feeling comfortable a...

  10. Should Rob Ryan be worried?

    Dan Graziano

    Lots of attempts today, in many circles, to figure out what Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones meant when he spoke on the radio about "change" coming to the team in the wake of its second straight 8-8 season. You know what I think, which is that Jones ...

  12. NFC East wrap: The year of RG III

    Dan Graziano

    Five things to know and my 2012 all-division team: Division MVP: Interesting word, "value." The Washington Redskins decided that fixing their problem at quarterback by drafting Robert Griffin III was worth three first-round picks and a second-roun...

  13. Twitter mailbag: Will Eli Manning rebound?

    Dan Graziano

    Back for more from the Twitter mailbag, which I think is proving a much more efficient way of taking and answering your questions than the old mailbag was. (I haven't even checked that thing in weeks. Don't miss it.) I've solicited questions on my @E...

  14. Yet again, defense will decide it for Dallas

    Dan Graziano

    Last year, when the Dallas Cowboys finished 1-4 and lost the NFC East to the New York Giants, blame fell on the defense. They couldn't stop anybody. They blew fourth-quarter leads in key games against the Cardinals and Giants. Opposing fullbacks hurd...

  15. Breakfast links: Bradshaw still banged up

    Dan Graziano

    It is Tuesday, the day of chats, knee-jerks and Power Rankings. (Hints: There's a new No. 1 this week, and our division's teams aren't doing very well.) We will take another day to dwell on Sunday's results before turning our attention to a Week 11 i...

  16. Morris Claiborne: Cowboys in microcosm

    Dan Graziano

    To their credit, the Dallas Cowboys did not overreact to Sunday's game. As happy as they were to get the road victory over the Philadelphia Eagles in a game they considered a must-win, nobody in the Cowboys' locker room was spraying champagne. The Co...
