Why Mark Cuban still believes Mavs have ‘come a long way’ despite record

“The way this season is, so many teams are competing,” Cuban said. “We get on one run and we’re right there. We beat some good teams handily. It’s not like we’re getting blown out by 20 points every game. “Last year, we went into it with Bogut and D-Will thinking we were competing for a playoff

Dak Prescott shares what stood out most to him in Cowboys win vs. Giants

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. – Dak Prescott will gladly take the career-high 332 passing yards, the three touchdowns and the 137.1 passer rating. Those are some of his impressive statistics from Sunday’s 30-10 win over the New York Giants. But that’s not what stood out most to the Cowboys quarterback

What Cowboys’ win over Giants meant for Dak Prescott, Dez Bryant

What do you think the reason for all the yards after catch the Cowboys got? The Giants were blitzing with no safeties back. When you do that, you better get there or you better make your tackle because there is nobody behind you at all. The Cowboys don’t usually get too many looks like this, but

Former Cowboy All-Pro Everson Walls on the Hall of Fame, playing for the Giants

I remember I was coming out for a game, doing some work, escorting some people to a Cowboys game. It just so happen James Lofton was there, and at the time, he was a hall of famer, but I don’t think he was as deeply involved as he is now. He came up to me, and I was still in the mix, I was feeling

‘Rushmen’ cometh: How the Cowboys finally found a pass rush that wreaks havoc on QBs

FRISCO — Rod Marinelli’s math doesn’t exactly calculate, but his formula has added up to the Cowboys’ best pass-rush in his four seasons as defensive coordinator. Marinelli is fond of saying the key to building a successful defensive line is four must equal one. Marinelli believes that in

Would a losing season mean Jason Garrett’s exit as Cowboys coach?

Would you agree that Jerry Jones antics with the commish have made him an outcast among league officials/ownership? Tim Cowlishaw: I wouldn’t know for sure without hearing it from the other owners but it stands to reason they see him that way. Jones going into owners meetings saying, in effect, that

The Cowboys’ most underrated impact player is …

Is Jourdan Lewis a better pure cover corner man-on-man than Awuzie? Jon Machota: I think it’s still too early to tell. Chido hasn’t had nearly as much playing time as Lewis at this level. Considering that the Cowboys used a second round pick on Awuzie and a third on Lewis, you’d think Chido

After losing out on Ohtani, Rangers can’t lose focus this offseason

After the Rangers traded him to Los Angeles, the Dodgers worked him pretty regularly on at least five days rest. In those seven starts, he compiled a 3.82 ERA. In the five starts before his World Series disaster, Darvish allowed three runs over 30.2 in…

How big is the absence of CB Janoris Jenkins (ankle surgery) for the Giants, and who might match up against Dez Bryant? Broaddus: “Well, they’re in a bad situation right now because they got a street free agent in Brandon Dixon, who’s now been the starter at the right cornerback spot. Eli
