Ex-Raiders WR Tim Brown: If I were the Cowboys, I would let Bill Callahan run the offense - DMN
Former Oakland Raiders wide receiver Tim Brown was very complimentary about Bill Callhan as a playcaller in a recent appearance on Sirius Radio, as transcribed by the DMN:

"I think [Bill Callahan], when looking at his calling record, he’s one of the best. Those four years he was with the Ravens, he gave all the runs. The six years he was with the Raiders, two years with (Jon) Gruden and two years by himself, he called all the runs. When he became the head coach, he called the passes too. I think from that standpoint, we had one of the best offenses in the league that year. "

Nate Newton: Why Tim Tebow would've made more sense for Cowboys than Vince Young - DMN
In an appearance on KESN-FM last week, Nate Newton was put on the spot by being asked what he thought of Vince Young and then being asked who he'd pick between Young and Tebow if he had to choose. Newton obliged and answered that Vince Young is "about done," and that Tim Tebow could at least "maybe play special teams." Damned with faint praise.

Cowboys position series: Quarterbacks - Tim MacMahon, ESPN Dallas
MacMahon sums up the status of the QB position, and reiterates that the Cowboys could sign a young developmental QB as the No. 3 guy.

Will Murray Stay On Field Enough To Reach Full Potential? - Nick Eatman,
Eatman doesn't really provide much of an answer to the question, writing only that the Cowboys have to be hoping Murray's "third season in the NFL will indeed be a healthy charm."

Troy Vincent: Many NFL rookies last just three years -
The NFL Rookie Symposium kicked off Sunday in Cleveland with the goal of teaching young players valuable lessons and making sure they are prepared for the NFL and life after football. The latter is particularly important, as the harsh reality is that less than half the rookies in each draft class last more than three years in the NFL, according to NFL vice president of play engagement Troy Vincent:

"Of the drafted rookies, less than half will still be around three years from now. That doesn't mean life stops; it better not. While we are introducing them to the NFL, we're also talking about life after football. ...There are life lessons that need to be learned right from the beginning."

LeSean McCoy doesn't care who Eagles start at QB -
In the cacophony of voices in Philly sounding off on the Eagles' QB situation, McCoy is the latest to add his, but at least his opinion is shared by 99% of the population.

RG3 feeling good after making hard cuts this week -
Robert Griffin continues to improve from his knee injury, and has apparently started working on cuts for the first time.

Report: Giants might make push for Vonta Leach - Big Blue View
In a clear indication the Giants are concerned about Henry Hynoski's recovery from knee surgery the Giants are said to be pondering a 'last-ditch effort' to sign Vonta Leach. At the same time, ProFootballTalk writes that Leach could still end up with the Ravens. This could get interesting.
