  • I haven't read the stuff about Brandon Williams that you guys are talking about. What exactly has been said. I read about him sitting out again though. They're bringing him back slowly, I guess.

    A lot of guys from last year are like redshirt rookies. So I'm excited about them finally putting the pads on... Robert Brewster for example.

      It's not even that serious, but some teams without as much talent would easily stash him if we tried to slip him by, and why waste a 7th round pick for a few days? I'm almost certain he makes the 53.
      That's an old report, based off Wade's miscue in his post practice conference.

      http://cowboysblog.dallasnews.com/ar...-left-han.html

      This says "broken hand", not finger.

      And I would bet that he doesnt make the 53, if he doesnt perform. The Cowboys dont have many spots to pass out for free and the guy is the equivalent to a 7th round pick for us. A draft value of perhaps a 2011 5th rounder tops. These guys get cut no problem every year. If he cant play or he doesnt do well...we'd have no problem trying to sneak him on the PS. Maybe he gets scooped up...big deal. A 2011 7th rounder, probably wouldnt have made the team either. The supplemental draft is where many teams "gamble" on players...and many of them dont make the team they're drafted to in their first year. A 7th rounder is a 7th rounder is a 7th rounder. If we lose him...it's no sweat off Jerry's back.

      The good news for him....is that it's not a bad break and he's expected back rather shortly. But if he doesnt play well...he wont make it, and it may a lot more difficult now with a broken bone in that left hand.

        He's only practicing once a day during two a days. For precautionary reasons.

        He's just been making plays all over the place. Quick off the snap. Great, at times "dominant" bull rush. He's beating guys consistently, continuing to turn heads, just like he did in the spring.

        Did you happen to notice that Brewster is all RT now? Most of us expected that now anyway, but yeah. He's been have an up and down camp over the first few days. But it's to be expected. McQ is all G now.

        I noticed the dmn blog pointing out Lissemore getting handled a lot. Which is disappointing, because you see this dude on paper and you really get excited to see him play. I still am excited to see him play in the preseason games, though.

        Sounds like both back up ILBs have performed well also. Lee and Williams. Great, great news. The fact that Williams is doing well is especially great.

        • ** Breaking down the quarterbacks' numbers in seven-on-seven and team drills: Romo was 18-of-20, Jon Kitna was 12 of 14 and Stephen McGee was 2 of 7.
          Pretty minor stuff here...but really, Mcgee is soooooooo bad. I really hope we look backup QB in next year's draft again.

          • I am excited about Jaison Williams too, he had his redshirt year, but his talent is still there. I want him and Sean Lee to be the future for us, and hopefully they find a way for both to get on the field. I'll be watching Williams very closely in TC this year to see what he does.

              Seriously...his physical ability is other worldly. haha. You just really want to see him reach his potential. I love our LB core, from top to bottom. This includes Curtis Johnson, who we havent seen a whole lot of.

              CB is looking kind of sketchy these days. Newman is sporadic and Scandrick was nothing special last year and he's battling injury this season.

              Stephon Gilmore in 2012!

              Thanks BoneKrusher^

              • Oh man, I want CB badly next year, especially Chykie Brown in the 2nd. Either way we need a starting quality corner, maybe Scandrick can be a great #2, not sure, but we need a guy bad. Jamar Wall was the complete opposite of what I wanted lol.

                • Yeah I want one in this upcoming draft too. I just really want Gilmore. haha. But we may not be able to wait until 2012 to draft another immediate starter quality type. There is always Chris Culliver. Should have drafted the Captain, dammit. I just a want a SCAR player on Dallas so bad.

                    Woulda been fine with the Cap or Brinkley.

                    • Hey D, found this about Brandon Williams. I can't find or remember where I read about the little things he's done so far, but this kinda summarizes some of those things:


                      Coach Wade Phillips termed OLB Brandon Williams' pass rushing burst "DeMarcus Ware-like."
                      "He's getting off the ball so fast that sometimes I feel like it's me when I'm watching film," Ware said. Last year's fourth-rounder missed his rookie season with a torn ACL, but Williams has upside as a speed rusher. Expect him to spell Ware and Anthony Spencer for 10-15 snaps per game.
                      Source: ESPNDallas.com


                      Wade sounds like he's really excited about him, and doesn't seem like he's talking him up for nothing. I hope he is 100% by September, maybe he is now. Still, I am loving our back-up pass rushers at this point, if these guys can keep Spencer and Ware fresh late in games it'll be a huge advantage we haven't always had, especially when it comes to Ware.


                      Obviously Ware won't rest like he did in the NO game last year, but I just remembering how damn hard it was to stop him when he was so fresh on that final drive for the Saints when he was treating Bushrod like a CFL lineman.

                      • Well, it's roughly 10 days until we play the Bengals and get to see our boys play, thinking about it like that I'm so excited. Hope Dez gets a good amount of reps all pre-season just to see what he has. I'll make a list of the guys I'm looking forward to seeing most though here soon.

                        • Sadly, one of the guys I was most interested in seeing probably wont even play, and that's Lissemore, who just went down. :(

                          Honestly, I've grown to like preseason. When I was younger, I hated it...but I enjoy watching our young guys play extended time. And I'm greatly opposed to them cutting two preseason games, in favor of two regular season games. bleh.

                          ...

                          Not to hijack your idea, but my long list of guys to watch would include...

                          Bryant
                          Hurd (as always)
                          Miller
                          Phillips (lighting up camp)
                          Sicko
                          Bright
                          Young
                          Brewster
                          Butler
                          B Williams
                          Johnson
                          J Williams
                          Lee
                          Wall
                          Mccann
                          Gordon
                          Hamlin
                          Church


                          The fact that AOA and Lissemore are out suckkkkkkkkks pretty bad.

                          • I want to see Andre Smith blocking on Demarcus Ware (if that's possible), & the assortment of Dallas ILBs stuffing the cutback lane(s) for Cedric Benson.

                            Cincy offense vs Dallas defense is where it will be at for me.

                              • I want to see Brewster, both Williams on defense, Sean Lee, Dez, and Victor Butler. I really just want to see some football now. It's been so long that I'm excited to get a little something next Saturday.
