The DMN blog with some morning practice highlights.
TE Jason Witten was the star. He caught three deep balls for touchdowns -- two on seam routes from Tony Romo and a post from Brad Johnson. The burn victims: Bradie James and Bobby Carpenter on the seams and Roy Williams on the post.
Good for Witten, but I think I’ve seen some of those same names on defense getting beat in the passing game before. Must fix pass defense.
Sixth-round pick Nick Folk consistently boomed kickoffs into the end zone. One landed on the back line.
That one is for BTB-regular Dunkman, who has declared the Folk/Gramatica battle the Showdown of the Century.
CB Terence Newman pantsed C Andre Gurode while Gurode has his back turned in the offensive huddle. Thank goodness Gurode was wearing spandex shorts instead of a jock under his practice shorts. "It's an ongoing battle -- the skinny guys vs. the fat guys," Gurode said. "The skinny guys better watch out."
One, I'm glad I didn’t see that actually occur. Two, would Parcells have allowed "pantsing" at his practices? If not, is the current pro-pantsing regime a better thing or not. This is serious business to discuss!
