  1. Cowboys draft Terrance Mitchell in 7th

    Tim MacMahon

    IRVING, Texas - The pick: Terrance Mitchell, cornerback, Oregon My take: The Cowboys, who crave creating more turnovers, added a cornerback with some ball skills. The 5-foot-11, 192-pound Mitchell picked off five passes last season and seven durin...

  2. Mavs beat turnover trouble in strange win

    Tim MacMahon

    It's a good thing for the Dallas Mavericks that they faced a glorified D-League team Friday night. It isn't often that an NBA team can commit 17 turnovers in the first half and live to tell about it, much less have a halftime lead. Actually, it...

    Tim MacMahon

    IRVING, Texas - When it comes to cutting down his turnovers, it's a matter of time for Tony Romo. At this point in his career, it really doesn't have much to do with the maturation process for the 33-year-old Romo. He's had seasons in which he lim...

  9. Dallas 'D' fails to force turnover

    Tim MacMahon

    Tim MacMahon

  12. Cowboys Tracker: Sean Lee

    Tim MacMahon

    OXNARD, Calif. -- It shouldn't come as a surprise that Sean Lee keeps making plays. Lee, who has seven interceptions, two forced fumbles and two fumble recoveries in 35 career games, forced two turnovers in Friday's practice. He jumped Phillip Tan...

  13. Play of the Day: Sean Lee's pick

    Tim MacMahon

    OXNARD, Calif. -- All due respect to Monte Kiffin's Tampa 2, but no defensive scheme is good enough to force turnovers if it doesn't feature playmakers. The Cowboys believe Sean Lee and Bruce Carter can be that type of impact players in Kiffin's s...
