Ten pounds lighter and noticeably quicker in the OTAs, Marion Barber is looking towards a healthy 2010 season. Coach Skip Peete also wants him running smarter. Remember these quotes by Emmitt Smith and Tony Dorsett about Barber's running style? Sounds like the two greats may be getting their wish this year. "I think he spends a lot of energy that may not be necessary," Smith said. "For a starting back, I'm all about putting your heart into it, but you're doing a lot of kicking, running up, bucking and you're exerting a lot of energy. "We need you for four quarters. And I'm going to say 'we' because I'm a Cowboy, too. We need you for four quarters." Dorsett also spoke to Barber about taking unnecessary contact. "I like him a whole lot," Dorsett said. "My only concern is that this is a very physical league. ...When you take a lot of hits over a period of time, it takes its toll on you. I just hope he becomes a little wiser and smarter about some of the hits he takes." BlueStarBlog
