Clarence Hill does a good job in examining what Terrell Owens, the player, brings to the table. In an article light on controversy and heavy on scouting Owens as a football player, Hill proves that you can write about Owens and stay way from the sensationalistic tabloid journalism we've seen so much of lately.

The starting FS is still the one position we're not sure about, with both guys obviously wanting to start.

Watkins:

Pat Watkins has not been told he will be the starting free safety on Sunday, but "I'm pretty much expecting to [be]," he said.

Davis:

"I look at it as I want to be the starter. I started 15 of 16 games there last year and I expect to be out there," [Keith] Davis said. "That's just the competitive nature of anybody. You want to play. But if not, I'll perform, whether it's on special teams or on defense. I'm paid to play football."

Both guys will probably see the field, but I'm guessing Watkins will end up the starter. This has happened much sooner than I expected, but if the rookie can do the job, put him in there. Davis is a killer on special teams, but is more of a SS in the secondary.

Bradie James answers the question of whether he'll play on Sunday.

"I'm playing," James said.

Guess that clears that up.

Good article over at the San Antonio paper looking at the interior line match-up which is going to be a key to winning the game.

Stroud, a first-round pick in 2001 and a Pro Bowler the last three seasons, stands 6-foot-6, 306 pounds. He'll go up against Rivera, who carries 309 pounds on a 6-4 frame and plays right guard.

The 6-5, 305-pound Kosier draws Henderson, a first-round pick in 2002 who is 6-7, 325 pounds. Henderson was a Pro Bowl pick in 2004 and has 181/2 career sacks.
