Why did Emmitt Smith not start on day 1 when he came to Dallas? Before the KC game Miles was given playing time and often would end up hurt and missing weeks of practice slowing down his progress. it is not that they did not want him out there but things are not done on a whim and they sure as hell are not done on fans time table.
