Miles Austin seems to be the man of the moment. We’ve always known that physically he has the goods to be a dominant receiver, he possesses size and speed. It’s been his hands and understanding of the position that has held him back. Could this be the year that he breaks out? The expectations are there that he might fulfill the three-year rule for players in general but especially for receivers who have always been notoriously slow in grasping the pro game.
Cowboys sources have been impressed with the development of Miles Austin, who made a few impressive plays in minicamp and could push Patrick Crayton at some point.The Cowboys wide receivers continue to draw a lot of speculation. We know that T.O. is the main man and will be the #1. It’s pretty safe to assume that Patrick Crayton will start again this year and try to rise to the level of a solid #2. Of course, Terry Glenn’s contract status and knee could change that although I’m not positive that even if he returns
steadily has improved as a wideout and has good enough size to be a factor in the red zone, as opponents key on Terrell Owens and Jason Witten. Austin
DC.com has a transcript of a T.O. interview with a radio station. Most of it is standard stuff but I thought his explanation of why George Teague nailed him when he trampled on the star all those years ago was interesting.
And you had no idea that George Teague was coming after you?
OWENS: Honestly, I didn't. The thing is, it wasn't a matter . . . When Teague went after me, I'm telling you right now, listen to me close. It wasn't the fact that I scored and I ran to that star, if you actually get that tape out and review the tape - a play or two before that happened, there was a run play down in the red zone - and I blocked him and I pancaked him. And he didn't like that. That was an opportunity for him to get back at me. I guarantee you it had nothing to do with the fact that I ran to that star.
Another article on Tony Romo and his potential endorsement deal with Starter. It’s a pretty lucrative deal. Starter doesn’t have a contract with the NFL meaning Romo couldn’t wear there gear on the field and they couldn’t even use his image in uniform for ads. So why are they going after Romo?
Industry sources said Starter was interested in signing Romo as an endorser because he is the quarterback of the high-profile Cowboys, who like Starter have a blue-and-white star as their symbol, and because of his romantic link to celebrity Jessica Simpson.Ha! And we thought is was Jessica using Romo to help her career!
