Crazy Ray had his memorial service yesterday, and there are plenty of articles recapping the scene. Mickey Spags here, the DMN here, and the DFW S-T here. They also have video of the service at each of those articles. It was nice to see that Ray's old nemesis - but really one of his best friends - Chief Zee, was in attendance. The Redskins mascot even donned a Cowboys' hat in Ray's honor. It sounds like Crazy Ray got a well-deserved send-off. He was one of a kind.

The Cowboys offseason conditioning workouts begin tomorrow. While everybody knows they're voluntary, it's expected that the players participate. Under Parcells, it was a big no-no not to attend. Under Phillips, it's the same, but he takes a more trusting approach. He's also going to utilize the maximum time available for on the field teaching.

The Cowboys are going to spend more time on the field before training camp than they did under Parcells.

Phillips is considering holding a second full-scale minicamp and using 14 days for so-called "on-field team activities" - the maximum number allowed in the off-season.

"That's where we'll do a lot of our teaching," Phillips said.

Jen Floyd Engel makes her case for the Cowboys picking a WR with their first pick.
