22 THE BLACK LADY AND THE WOODSON ADVANCE DeMarcus Ware is a semifinalist for the second time and Darren Woodson is a semifinalist for the seventh time as two Cowboys legends move one step closer to immortality in the Pro Football Hall of Fame.
Hall released his group of 28 on Tuesday. Five eligible first-year prospects are among the 28 modern-era player semifinalists for the 2023 class. Ware and Woodson are among a group of 19 players who reached the semifinals a year ago.
The final announcement of who is available will come in early 2023.
NOVEMBER 22 ARIES Rumors of retirement Is Matthew Stafford over?
The DFW product has a Super Bowl under his belt, but now that Los Angeles is struggling, a 27-20 loss to the New Orleans Saints marked the Rams’ fourth straight loss … and for weeks there have been questions about concussion protocol. The future of Stafford’s career.
On Monday, NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport discussed what lies ahead for Stafford and the Rams on the Pat McAfee Show.
“I don’t know what his decision will be,” Rapoport said. “I think he will come back, but I don’t know. I think it depends on the health of the team…”
Health, or lack thereof, has been a major talking point for a Rams team that has struggled to stay healthy. They’re down a couple of offensive linemen, star receiver Cooper Kupp is on IR and Stafford — in addition to a concussion — entered the season with a shoulder that affected his season.
Stafford, who played in high school at Highland Park High in Dallas, will turn 35 in February 2023, and that seems like a viable conversation for him, his family and the Rams.
NOVEMBER 19 KELLEN – AGAIN? The Dallas Cowboys are used to it. Offensive coordinator Kellen Moore is consistent when it comes to naming potential head coaching candidates. … young, old, whatever.
It’s happening again, with two Cowboys names coming up on NFL.com’s list of young coaches to watch.
Here’s what NFL.com has to say about the 34-year-old Moore: “Moore is highly regarded for his football IQ and creativity. He was busy last January interviewing for head coaching jobs with the Jaguars, Broncos, Dolphins and Vikings. (The Eagles interviewed Moore the year before.) Like most young coaches, really. , Moore has a lot to learn about the big picture of running a program. He needs a good plan for his staff and surrounds himself with experienced people. But the tools are there.”
Another guy, D-line coach Aden Durde, 43, is listed as a “future” candidate. Durdey, as Cowboys fans know, recruited coaches and players from the UK and beyond.
We’ve seen various speculations about whether or not coordinator Dan Quinn left Dallas and what that might mean for Durde. We gently remind you, “Remember where we live,” and say that this prediction is a) too early and b) tends to miss Joe Witt Jr.’s strong presence at Dallas State.
Stay tuned …
18 BLACK COMMANDERS honor Virginia shooting victims Days after the shooting that claimed the lives of three University of Virginia football players, the Washington Cardinals will wear helmet decals in their honor against the Houston Texans on Sunday.
Lavelle Davis Jr., Devin Chandler and D’Sean Perry were all killed in a shooting last Sunday night by the former Virginia State football player. Returning Mike Hollins and another student were shot, but they nursed injuries.
NOVEMBER 15 Odell Beckham Jr. is on the radar of the Dallas Cowboys. That shouldn’t change since CeeDee Lamb had a standout performance in Sunday’s OT loss at Green Bay … right?
That’s right, says Cowboys owner Jerry Jones.
“I don’t think so,” Jones told 105.3 The Fan when asked about the change in attitude. “I would say that was the best game (Lamb) has ever seen. But a talent like Odell’s is a plus. Beckham’s nature is that he can put us far above where we are.
“We’ll see where he is.”
If he chooses Dallas from his list of five choices, we’ll see where he ends up. (Or is it “two choices”?
But it’s true: Lamb has gone on record as a huge OBJ fan and joined the chorus of voices in The Star, the locker room and beyond, supporting Beckham’s reunion.
CeeDee approved of the attractive master plan: “Why don’t you want to add more force to crime? I feel like I had three No. 1 receivers my rookie year. Why not go back to that?’
NOVEMBER 15 OBJ COURT Odell Beckham Jr. has filed a lawsuit against Nike, alleging the shoe giant owes him $20 million over a breached endorsement deal.
Yes, that’s the same number that OBJ is asking the Dallas Cowboys and other suitors for in terms of $20 million in annual salary.
What did Nike do wrong?
“Today, I stand to be an example not only to myself, but to all athletes who dedicate their lives to the sport they love, especially athletes who do not have the opportunity to defend themselves,” Beckham said. writes. “We are responsible for meeting our contractual obligations, but we also need to hold powerful companies like Nike accountable for meeting their obligations.”
Beckham is “awarded $20,625,000 in damages and prejudgment interest,” the suit says.
NOVEMBER 12 OBJ FINAL 5? The OBJ Sweepstakes – as free agent Odell Beckham Jr. himself said – includes the Dallas Cowboys and four other teams … and the five wish list finalists are, not coincidentally, the five teams with the NFL’s five best records.
And more: In addition to narrowing down his list of future teams, ESPN reports he has a target date: He’s medically cleared to play after a lengthy knee rehab and plans to make a decision by the end of November.
The five teams are: Dallas Cowboys, New York Giants, Buffalo Bills, San Francisco 49ers and Kansas City Chiefs. … all of these are playoff contenders.
NOVEMBER 12 OBJ GM COMES TOGETHER Great news… this trip didn’t happen with the Dallas Cowboys GM (yet).
According to Bills standout Von Miller, the visit was over the phone in Buffalo.
I talked it over with the general manager on the phone,” Miller said this week. “(Buffalo GM Brandon) Beane sees it the way I see it.
“The ball is in OBJ’s court.”
It’s the first insight offered for the hiring of two-time All-Pro wide receiver Beckham, who is on the verge of being medically cleared to play again after a lengthy knee rehab.
The Dallas Cowboys have joined the Bills in being open about their plans to sign Beckham, with Dallas COO Stephen Jones saying the Cowboys would make a “significant case” to include a multi-year contract offer to the 30-year-old star.
The Cowboys locker room, led by Dak Prescott and Micah Parsons, also appears to be making an effort.
Beckham may also have the San Francisco 49ers, New York Giants and others on his list as he looks for a place to call “home,” as he recently stated.
It’s Cowboys icon Michael Irvin’s opinion (albeit biased) that OBJ will be great in a city as noteworthy as Dallas; Indeed, Irwin predicts that will be the case. But among other reasons, attention is also drawn to Buffalo because of the quality of the football team.
Could OBJ be “at home” in Buffalo?
In a visit to The Pivot Podcast, Miller, who left his “view” with the Los Angeles Rams, echoed his feelings on the subject.
“I wouldn’t have tried to get him here if we didn’t have the opportunity,” Miller said.

NOVEMBER 11 “FINAL” PRACTICES INJURY REPORT – ZECE AND/OR TONY? Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said Friday that he expects running back Ezekiel Elliott (knee) to play Sunday at Green Bay:
“I do,” Jones tells 105.3 The Fan. “Everyone I’ve seen, I saw it yesterday, I think it’s going.”
There’s reason for that optimism, as Elliott had a “good day of practice” Thursday and “did everything … he took all the reps in the team period,” coach Mike McCarthy said Friday. ‘
But our understanding is that Dallas is patient here and waiting to see how Zeke does Friday and Saturday. And if he can’t go?
“Tony Pollard,” McCarthy said authoritatively, “man.”
And, of course, so does Elliott. Stay tuned. …
And Friday’s version…
