Looks like former Cowboys Coach, Barry Swizter, will be joining Jimmy Johnson and the rest of the crew on Fox’s NFL Sunday Pregame show. Switzer will also being a segment with Jimmy Johnson, where they discuss football and the BCS. Should be good stuff. Johnson said Fox colleague Terry Bradshaw will referee the debates. “Terry will keep us separated,” he jokes.
I’m calling it now, rookie Nick Folk will win the kicking battle. Yes Gramatica, has been doing well in all aspects; however, so has Folk. Folk is younger, has the stronger leg, and has made virtually all attempts. We are not going to waste a roster spot on two kickers when one of them can handle both duties.

Its never too early to take a look at some potential prospects for the 2008 draft. In, the 2008 NFL Draft we will enjoy the luxury of having (2) 1st round draft picks. Of those two picks, one has the potential to be a top 5 at best and top 10 pick at worst. I don’t see the lowly Browns winning more than 6 games this year. As for what position we may need to address in the
That’s right, Isaiah Stanback has finally made it to the field for practice. Stanback, has been looking nothing like a 4th pick; but rather, and possible draft pick bust. The jury is still out on the latter, as the Cowboys had hoped to plant him as the primary punt returner. That has yet to materialize, and the Cowboys are still looking at having Newman back there. Crayton
The one thing that stands out with Garrett’s new offense was the ability to disguise plays. You’re not ever quite sure of the Cowboys are going to run. As stated in previous posts, the Cowboys are not going to display the full gamut in their offensive schemes in the preseason; however, the Cowboys may have showed off a new found power in Anthony Fasano.

You can just see thereâ€™s a whole new camaraderie forming between the coaches and players.

Tomorrow Phillips and Garrett make their live game debut in what should be a loud, frenzy-fanpacked Texas Stadium. Everyone, and I mean, everyone is waiting to see how Phillips’ defensive retooling will make the Cowboys more competitive this year. We’ll get a taste of it tomorrow night. Same goes for Jason Garrett; moreover, Garrett was the first coach hired after Parcells
Last year, the Cowboys managed to slow down the Colts high-octane offense. In doing so, the Cowboys defeated the Colts 14-21. So, the Parcells 3-4 was effective, and the Cowboys offense kept pace. This year the Cowboys will be running the attacking Phillips 3-4, which brings constant pressure on the QB at all times. The Cowboys should be able to slow down the Colts first team offense
