For all you closet Stephen Peterman fans, BTB brings you this article. Peterman, who was back in Louisiana to do some charity work, discusses his injury problems and his hope for the new season.
"I've got a good shot. We got rid of our Pro Bowl guard Larry Allen. The job is open going into camp. But I've got to compete and win that job.
"They are trying me a little bit at center. I started in the off-season. He told me to start snapping and get used to it."
That is the first time in his football career he had played center.
"It's fun jumping back from position to position," he said. "The NFL only takes 53 guys to the game. The more you can do, the better. Starting or backing up, I have to do as much as I can. You play two positions in case someone else gets hurts."
Vincent Brown, our new inside linebackers coach, gets some ink in the DMN. (sub. req.). Brown played for the Parcells and the Patriots long ago and had a very cool nickname, "The Undertaker". Here's how he got the job in Dallas.
When Gary Gibbs left for New Orleans this off-season, Parcells called on Brown, who had been an assistant coach at Meadowcreek High School in Norcross, Ga. Parcells also moved Paul Pasqualoni from tight ends coach to linebacker coach and believes his experience will help Brown through difficult moments all coaches have early on.
The players like him because he's played in the NFL before, so he knows what he teaches.
