Dallas Cowboys Wednesday night links

Hard Knocks premieres tonight at 10 EST on HBO. Tune in if you can, I already have my popcorn ready to go!

Here's some news and notes to tide you over in the meantime.

Tim Cowlishaw says that enough is enough; Patrick Crayton is our No. 2 receiver and he's a pretty good one at that.

Only four teams had No. 2 wide receivers that caught balls for more yards and touchdowns than Crayton. And in all four cases – New England's Wes Welker, Cincinnati's T.J. Houshmandzadeh, Arizona's Anquan Boldin and Green Bay's Greg Jennings – the players came from offenses that did not feature the tight end in the passing game.

Calvin Watkins says that Roy Williams may finally be happy on the football field again and on top of that, is content in a more limited role.

"I'm good; I'm good, real good," Williams said. "It's not what they're doing. It's just really me, and I feel comfortable in what I'm supposed to be doing and I know what my role is supposed to be and I'm going out there and doing it."

Deon Anderson says he has never seen players as big as Leonard Davis and Flozell Adams.

“You know what Lil Wayne says in his rap? What's a goon to a goblin?” said Anderson, a second-year fullback. “I've seen some goons in my day, but they are goblins. Not in college, not in my life have I seen anybody that big. They're monsters.”
