Cowboys article roundup

The Cowboys website takes a look at safeties coach Mike MacIntyre. Youth is served at safety, besides Roy Williams and vet Marcus Coleman.

And now that he's in charge of the safeties, youth still abounds behind last year's starters, Roy Williams and Keith Davis, who by the way, started last season for only the first time in his three-year NFL career.


Among the reserve safeties, with 10-year veteran Marcus Coleman working at cornerback for now, Willie Pile is considered the veteran, with all of two years in the NFL. Other than Pile, the Cowboys have four other safeties who have yet to play their first NFL regular-season game - last year's sixth-round pick Justin Beriault the most experienced of the bunch since he at least went through training camp with the team before landing on injured reserve.

Hey, good timing for this article, as it ties in nicely with the newest BTB poll on the right-hand side of the blog. Be sure to vote if you haven't already.

Scott Shanle is gearing up for the season, according to this article.

Once training camp commences, Shanle expects to battle for a starting role with Akin Ayodele, an offseason free-agent signee who recorded 100-plus tackles in each of the last four seasons with the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Good luck on that. There's no way Ayodele doesn't start a ILB.

This article from is a little bit of a stretch, comparing West Coasters (coaches who use the West Coast offense) against West Pointers. West Pointers are coaches connected to Bill Parcells, who once coached at Army for four years. Yeah, like I said, a bit of a stretch.
