Dez Bryant is saying he’ll be back for that game and the team is hoping the same for Jason Witten. We probably ought not to worry about DeMarcus Ware either but it’s never good to lose guys like that.
The offensive line has battled injuries and their first real test will be that opening game. The rival Giants will throw everything they have at the Cowboys and if the O-line leaks too badly, we’ll know we are in for a long season.
Maybe the team is just getting that stinking injury bug out of the way early to have a healthy full season.
Brandon Carr had an impressive game against the Chargers, picking off two Philip Rivers passes. Carr, who came over from Kansas City in the offseason might just be the second most-talked-about corner back for the Cowboys after they drafted Morris Claiborne and the two take attention away from Mike Jenkins and Orlando Scandrick, both of whom are capable of having their best year in 2012.
Other news in the division, we all know how Vince Young, then Eagles’s second-string quarterback of the Eagles called the team a dream team and Vince Young said this is the beginning of a dynasty. Well, let the Eagles keep talking and making fool of themselves, and leave it to another wide receiver to do the same.
DeSean Jackson said now that he has a contract, he’ll actually put forth an effort. Apparently the multi-million dollar contract he had last year wasn’t enough for him to try as hard as he will this year now that he’s making millions more. Perhaps he was just trying to put food on the table or whatever it is spoiled athletes say from time to time.
