By now you’re likely well-aware that former NFL offensive lineman Willie Anderson is working out the Dallas Cowboys line this week.
Anderson is a former Paul Alexander disciple, and he has an offensive line academy of his own these days. He’s been teaching the Cowboys what he knows, and he’s been showing Cowboys fans all about it.
Willie has done something very cool while working with the Cowboys, things like sharing videos of what they’ve been working on. He took to Twitter on Thursday evening to share some thoughts on his experiences with America’s Team.
Couple observations. Paul Alexander and Marc Colombo work their ass off with these lineman. This Group of guys from Center to Tackle embrace Work and have coaches to keep giving them more! I’m not kissing ass either. This the truth! I’m impressed!— Willie Anderson (@BigWillie7179) May 17, 2018
Got to hang around and chop it up with 1 of my childhood favorites . Fellow Mobile , Al native Leon “Big Cat” Lett! Boy we used to love this dude! #Cowboys— Willie Anderson (@BigWillie7179) May 17, 2018
It’s great to see Willie giving such high praise to Cowboys staffers Paul Alexander, Marc Colombo, and Leon Lett. Knowing that the best offensive line in the league is in the hands of hard-workers is music to our ears.
These weren’t the only members of the staff that Willie praised, though. His final thought was reserved for the top of the food chain, head honcho Jason Garrett himself.
Last but not Least. Maaan Jason Garret is portrayed wrong in my opinion outside of Dallas. Dude has a plan , he knows what it is and he pushes Coaches and players to get on his level of intensity! #Cowboys— Willie Anderson (@BigWillie7179) May 17, 2018
A lot of people warmed to Jason Garrett after Amazon’s “All or Nothing” this offseason. Willie isn’t talking about something in the past, he’s talking about the now. This is a former great offensive lineman who is talking very highly of the man in charge of the Cowboys.

Cowboys have Chaz Green listed as G/T on their official website, but he worked out at left tackle with Willie Anderson on Thursday. Wonder if tackle is the plan/hope for him in 2018. (h/t @BigWillie7179 IG) pic.twitter.com/xN9E5KN12R— RJ Ochoa (@rjochoa) May 17, 2018
Let’s hope Willie Anderson’s impressions are an indication of how the offseason is going for the ‘Boys. More than anything, let’s hope that those impressions translate into on-field success in 2018.
