Tidbits: "Some fans commented that Rayford only shined against third-stringers in the preseason. Not true. He faced six-time Pro Bowler Joe Thomas against the Cleveland Browns and broke him down twice. He got around New York Giants starting tackle Justin Pugh, pulling David Carr down with one hand! Rayford may have faced a lot of third-stringers in the preseason, but when he got his opportunities to face starters, he shined." .......... "The Cowboys actually appear to need Rayford, as Anthony Spencer doesn't appear ready for the season opener. Perhaps Dallas will give Rayford the playing time that he needs to further develop."
