The Dallas Cowboys are scheduled to start off the 2013 NFL season at home against the division rival New York Giants.  To date, the Dallas Cowboys have failed to beat the Giants at AT&T stadium. The Cowboys signed two linebackers: one off of waivers, and made a trade with the Chiefs for another,  in hopes of bolstering the stagnant special teams play.


CowboysVsGiants3History has proven that the New York Giants beat the Dallas Cowboys in the trenches. For every time the  Cowboys have managed to sack Eli manning, on average, the Giants have sacked Tony Romo six times. The Dallas Cowboys offensive line will be key in winning this match-up. They need to not only be able to protect Tony Romo, but create running lanes for DeMarco Murray. With the Giants stout pass rush, it is imperative that the Cowboys are able to run the ball well. Both teams are plagued with injured players. The Giants and the Cowboys alike are questionable in the trenches for week one.  This game will more than likely come down to who has the most depth there. You can see both teams injury status below.

Dallas Cowboys | New York  Giants Injury Report:

DT Jay Ratliff  (groin) has been placed on PUP and the Status of veteran DE  Anthony Spencer (knee)  is still questionable.  Dallas Cowboys RB Lance Dunbar who has been suffering with a foot injury and  Safeties Danny McCray (hamstring) and Eric Frampton (calf) also missed  practice. Cowboys DE/DT  Tyrone Crawford, C Ryan Cook, OG Nate Livings, and S Matt Johnson are also on IR.

DE Jason Pierre-Paul (back) was able to do some things during practice Monday, but is uncertain if he will be able to play Week 1 against the Cowboys. Head coach Tom Coughlin said Pierre-Paul has to practice and feel good the next day in order to play Week 1. WR Victor Cruz (heel) participated in practice Monday and appears to be on track to play Week 1. Cruz said he was worried about running hard and breaking routes but he said his heel felt fine in practice. WR Ramses Barden, veteran Pro Bowl S Stevie Brown, OG Selvish Capers, and CB Laron Scott are on IR. DT Markus Kuhn is on the PUP list. As per

Dallas Cowboys v New York GiantsFullback Henry Hynoski believes he is well enough to play Sunday, but is waiting to get the approval of the Giants’ medical staff. Hynoski had knee surgery in May and was activated from PUP on Aug. 22.

“I’m doing good,” Hynoski said. “I practiced full today, I’m feeling good. If you want to know about Sunday, I can’t give you an answer now. That’s going to be decided later in the week, I’m assuming, by the doctors. I practiced full, no issues.

“I feel good out there, haven’t had any issues or setbacks. It’s just a matter of getting the go-ahead or not and we’ll see what happens at the end of this week. Every day I progress, but I think I have to progress just a little bit more to give them that go-ahead.”

Henry Hynoski was one of the players from my “The Guys No One Is Talking About” series two years ago and has become an integral part of the Giants offense.  It would be a huge advantage to the Cowboys if he isn’t ready for Sundays game. In  former match-ups  he was not only an asset as a lead blocker in the running game, but a major threat  as a receiver out of the backfield. Hynoski is touted as a top 5 FB in the NFL.

JohnBoyettIndianapolis Colts: FS John Boyett was arrested after an altercation with police officers in Indianapolis on Monday. He has been charged with disorderly conduct, public intoxication and resisting Law Enforcement after not being allowed in a bar, according to Marion County Jail records obtained by and NFL Network. It is obvious to me by looking at the bruises on his face in the  image to the left, he didn’t fare too well trying to resist the police.  It never ceases to amaze me how these young athletes are living a dream and can’t manage to keep themselves out of trouble with the law. Especially as a young player who has no established status on the team to speak of. Will the Colts cut him? Only time will tell, but this is one heck of a way to start off his young career in the NFL. The commissioner may decide to suspend the rookie in the event the Colts don’t part ways with him.

You can’t arrest me; I’m a Colts player,” Boyett repeatedly told the officers, according to The Indianapolis Star, citing a police report that described the 23-year-old’s behavior as “very abusive.” Boyett later threatened a police officer, according to the report, saying “I’m going to come back and break your jaw.”

    No reason they shouldn’t run over the Giants if they properly game planned. Giants look really banged up.

    • I think it will come down to both lines: If the Cowboys can protect Romo, run the ball and stop the run, they will win. I am not as concerned about our secondary,

  • Gabriel Carrasco

    Dallas will be able to force Eli into some errant throws. They have done it before. I pointed out that most of Eli Manning’s interceptions come when he is in the pocket and when there is no defender there to bring him down. Eli Manning is the most overrated QB ever.

  • C. Joseph Wright

    I think history (at least last season) shows that the Cowboys can beat the Giants despite losing in the trenches and having Romo get sacked repeatedly. They beat the Giants in New York, and they lost the second game because of unnecessary turnovers, not turnovers caused by poor line play.

  • Gabriel Carrasco

    Further proof the Cowboys management continues to fail. They just traded a conditional 2015 pick to the Colts for Caesar Rayford. Yeah he dominated the Giants line but seriously he is 6’7″ 248 lbs. Seems like an oversized linebacker to me. We need a freaking DT and yet we keep getting linebackers and DE. Just pathetic. All the O line man that were just released and we see how bad the backup spots are on the line and we still do nothing. We better hope and pray that none of our starting O lineman get hurt.

  • Gabriel Carrasco

    The Cowboys finally sign Brain Waters. It concerns me that he hasn’t played in two years but if he comes back and returns even as an above average player it increases the ability of the O line. Smith, Leary, Frederick, Waters, and Free sound a lot better.

    • he is over the hill: 36 and didn’t suit up in 2 yrs.. wonderful

  • football mensa

    In 3 weeks all Dallas fans will be applauding the Waters signing. He won’t be a pro bowl player but he will be steady and significantly better than Mac. The talent level on the o line is at least 75% better than last season….it’s gonna be a good season in big D.

      I think 75% is kind of high in improvement, that makes The Boys must jump to 6th best Rushing team in the NFL from 31 last year. I believe a jump from 31 to 11 will be more probable, that an increase of 40.375 yards per game. That means the boy must run the ball 10 more times per game last year to get to 118.0 yards from the 78 they had last year as a team. This commitment to the run will have to come to a cost to the passing game. With the Boys Passing 40 times per game vs 20 yards rushing, the boys projected number with the same efficiency will be like 3675 yards by the way of the pass. I dont even see this as being possible the Cowboys rushing 30 times vs 30 times for the run. The reason it wont happen is because the Boys are pass happy and not committed to the run game what so ever. These number are base on last year productivity of 3.77 yards by run and 11.35 per game, that a 1 to 3 ratio in term of yards per play.

  • californy

    I believe many of the new signed player play by default, there just no one else on the team who can step up and play and start. That may have something to do with JJ draft record during 2009 to 2012 when he missed on 22/33 players. The only non drafted player during that time who may start is Leary. Leary is interesting only because his window may be so short because of his medical condition on his knees. Most NFL pass on him because of his medical condition, but JJ was willing to take a chance on him. We will see how that turns out for the boys this season
