Typically we see a bit of turnover in terms of playoff teams, the Cowboys were one and have failed to put together back to back seasons of that caliber for some time now.If Dallas is going to be playing in the postseason for consecutive years they’re going to have to win some big games, including one on the road against the aforementioned New England Patriots. BetOnline released odds for some of the bigger games of the season after the schedule was released and they have the Cowboys as underdogs in most of theirs (as listed by BetOnline). Week 4: Dallas at New Orleans... Saints favored by 5.5Week 5: Green Bay at Dallas... Cowboys favored by 3.5Week 12: Dallas at New England... Patriots favored by 5.5Week 14: Dallas at Chicago... Bears favored by 2.5Conventional lines generally see the home team favored by three points so take that into consideration when looking at these. By that logic you could almost deduce that the Cowboys could be true favorites in Chicago for example, but the overall point is that these games all look like they’ll be pretty close.It’s only April so looking at these things requires a bit of a cautionary eye, especially because the NFL Draft hasn’t even happened yet. We know quite well just how much a rookie class can impact a season. Any one of these teams could experience a similar renaissance of sorts La'el Collins Jersey Stitched , the Saints just did recently too, that might push these in one direction or the other. Nothing big is likely to emerge from the three days. But some interesting things are there if you squint hard enough." />Skip to main contentclockmenumore-arrownoyesHorizontal - WhiteBlogging The BoysBlogging The Boys, a Dallas Cowboys fan communityLog In or Sign UpLog InSign UpFanpostsFanshotsSectionsLibraryCowboysOddsShopAboutMastheadCommunity GuidelinesStubHubMoreAll 322 blogs on Horizontal - WhiteFanposts Fanshots Sections Dallas Cowboys NewsFiled underallas Cowboys 2019 OTAA look at the roster of players participatingin Cowboys rookie minicamp New,25commentsNothing big is likely to emerge from the three days. But some interesting things are there if you squint hard enough.CDTShareTweetShareShareA look at the roster of players participatingin Cowboys rookie minicamp Connor McGovern wants to prove he can play all five OL positions.Matthew O’Haren-USA TODAY SportsIt has begun for the Dallas Cowboys. OK, the rookie minicamp is literally baby steps, but yesterday marked the first real day of the Cowboys march to the 2019 NFL season. It is the first look the staff has at the newest members of the team, even if most of them will not make it to the 53-man roster. This is used by the staff for teaching and introducing the Cowboys’ schemes and plays to the new players. There are walk-throughs, but no work by the offense against the defense. Right now, the biggest goal is helping the rookies handle the flood of new information while adjusting to their new life. There are also several “first-year” players who get to attend despite not being rookies Youth L. P. Ladouceur Jersey , mostly based on them not being on a 53-man roster last year. They benefit from the extra work, and are all fighting for a chance to stick with Dallas after training camp.A total of 31 players were in attendance.Now, it is hard to derive true intelligence about what the team is up to, but a few things stood out to me.First, there were only two players invited in for tryouts, at least to start. The team could always add more, but it was interesting that they brought in a fullback. That looks to be as much to let them be able to put the offense on the field to practice sets involving the FB as anything. Joe Prothereo is no doubt dreaming of breaking through, but given the three-year deal the Cowboys gave Jamize Olawale, it is highly doubtful that the newbie has any real shot at all. Phillip Nelson is in the same situation L. P. Ladouceur Jersey Stitched , given that it is rather hard to do anything at all without a quarterback in the mix. But unlike Prothereo, Nelson could have a shot at getting invited back for camp. Dallas really needs a fourth arm for camp to keep from overworking the three QBs already on the roster. It will cost someone else a shot, of course, but such is the reality of the 90-man camp limit. And Nelson needs to make a good impression, because the team can easily find a vet looking for a chance to show what he has to take that role.Also interesting is who was not added to the mix. There was no place kicker, and it is almost certain that one will have to be brought in for the same reason they need one more passer. And that will be something to watch in camp, because we all remember what happened last year when Brett Maher unexpectedly supplanted Dan Bailey. But there is no reason to try to identify one in the minicamp, since a kicker’s tryout doesn’t require any other players other than a holder and long snapper - and can be done without even that, since a coach could hold the ball for him. It does raise the question of just what they will do with long snapper Drew Scott Youth Anthony Brown Jersey , since they don’t have a punter in the mix, either. He may have to do a lot of work by himself, although they could practice some special teams sets without actually having a punter or kicker back there for him.And the Cowboys are just using one tight end in Codey McElroy for this. That may not be any real indication, but for some of us (waves hand in the air), it offers a tiny bit more hope that we are going to see some real changes under offensive coordinator Kellen Moore. It would seem to indicate that they aren’t going to do much if anything with “heavy” sets in this rookie camp. And it might be a sign that the team will only carry five TEs into Oxnard, which just fuels the idea that things will be a bit more wide open under Moore, with perhaps only three on the 53-man roster. There won’t be much coverage out of the practices, and as mentioned, it is not going to be a heavy workload Anthony Brown Jersey Stitched , at least from the physical aspect. But we will eagerly wait for any and all tidbits, no matter how small. It’s football!
