We are now a whole week into the practice part of Dallas Cowboys training camp and a whole lot has happened over the course of the last seven days.

Friday marks another day of activity and it began with a Mike McCarthy press conference. The head coach has been quite informative and interesting to listen to, certainly more so than the previous regime.

Here is a recap of what Mike McCarthy had to say. In the name of full transparency, the stream of each press conference has been rocky to this point as all people continue to adapt to our new normal, so we have provided a collection of tweets from the local media instead.


Mental errors from Thursday are being corrected

Mike McCarthy noted that the Cowboys had some mental errors on Thursday during practice that they worked on in their study session. Learning never stops.

It’s good to see that the Cowboys are cleaning things up. Mistakes are going to happen.

La’el Collins and Tyron Smith are doing alright

It was reported on Thursday that La’el Collins was in a car accident and that Tyron Smith experienced hamstring tightness. According to McCarthy both are alright, thankfully.

Obviously nobody expects car crashes around training camp. Thankfully everyone is healthy.

Sean Lee was injured in the strength and conditioning phase

To this point in camp all that has been noted about veteran linebacker Sean Lee has been that he’s been off to the side. Apparently he was injured in the strength and conditioning phase, but McCarthy isn’t too concerned.

Get well soon, General.

Super Bowl expectations are to be expected

There has been a lot of hype about the 2020 Dallas Cowboys, a lot of people believe that this team could do some serious damage when it’s all said and done. Mike McCarthy isn’t fazed by that pressure.

Team bonding these days isn’t easy

So much of training camp typically involves a football team getting closer to one another. Obviously social-distancing protocols have made that more difficult than usual, but the team is working on alternatives to create positive vibes.

John Fassel as Alex Trebek would be interesting to see to say the least.

Things are still getting where they need to get

If things had played out the way that they were scheduled to then this would be the second week of the preseason (what would have been the third preseason game for the Cowboys). Needless to say, there is still a long way to go before we are caught up.

We’re just taking things - wait for it - day by day.
