Cowboys news and notes

The DMN blog has updates from this morning's practice, including the secondary making some big plays. But this nugget caught my eye:

First-round pick Anthony Spencer had the play of the day -- a leaping interception after pulling up on the pass rush. It was just like DeMarcus Ware's Pick 6 against the Falcons, except Tony Romo rolled to his right.

Leonard Davis gets some ink for the SA E-N.

"I feel like I'm better at guard," Davis said. "At tackle in the pass set you might have a guy 3 to 5 yards outside you, but at guard you've still got to be quick because the guy's right there in front of me. I'm really using my size and strength at either position."

Mosley has more from his visit to Valley Ranch. Miles Austin found out that what kind of dog you own matters.

I attempted to bring up the [Vick] dogfighting issue with a couple of players, but the conversation quickly devolved into running back Marion Barber and wide receiver Patrick Crayton making fun of receiver Miles Austin for having a nine-pound Boston Terrier named Fergie...

That’s a little more macho than Bill Parcells pet cat, Cody. But in a battle between the two, the advantage has to go to Parcells’ cat. Parcells on Cody:

"I have a cat. My girlfriend has a cat. I have a cat, his name is Cody... He’s a good size cat. He’s about 16 or 17 pounds, very athletic. Very, very athletic. He can do stuff you wouldn’t believe."

In a battle to the death, I’m going with Cody over Fergie.

I always have to pump up my Georgia Tech guys, so here’s Mosley on ex-Tech player Damarius Bilbo.

Former Georgia Tech quarterback Damarius Bilbo made several nice plays at safety in Friday's practice. Bilbo, who spent time on the practice squad last season, becomes the scout team quarterback when the Cowboys are trying to prepare for a mobile quarterback.
