    They talk about it in the interview and Steve mentions it on the 8-20 Lunchbreak.

    What did he say about the conditioning?

    I read it here...


    But it seems there was a bit of misinformation





    That said, I'm not sure where you're reading that Hitchens has been bad. I've been reading just the opposite. From all the reports I've seen, he's been solid.

    I've read several beat guys on twitter mention that his conditioning is his biggest hindrance. Fisher, Broaddus, Spags, too, I believe.

    2-3 weeks of practice - with limited reps due to having to sit out practices (soreness, etc) - AFTER 1.5 years off is NOT enough time for football shape. Football shape takes players who participated in the entire OTA's 3-4 weeks to get to football shape. A guy who missed 1.5 years???? Probably will hit football shape around Week 3-4 - regular season.

    Well, I'm glad for you that Dennis' word is all you need to be assured. Me, I need more than that. I want to see it for myself.

    Talked about how sore he is. He's doing everything he can to play through it. He felt like he was in high school again that first game against Baltimore. It's something he has to mentally overcome until his body catches up (paraphrase). He's going to do it because he doesn't want to let his Boys (team mates down).

    He was out of shape in Oakland, as well.

    It shouldn't take too much longer into a season, before his comments are seen as from a professional. To the Cowboys fans...one of theirs.

    Dennis is reporting from the interview he conducted. I am elated from that report. I will take his word any day before I rest on the prognostication from the Zoneologists :D They've got RoMc taking off his pants and walking off the field in the middle of the SF game.

    It kind of is weird though that some fans will take a journalists word for it when the writer is spelling out doom for a Dallas player, and then they won't have any of it when the same journalist says something good about a player.

    It is counter-intuitive. Couldn't be disingenuous though.

    Not agenda driven, that's for sure.

    I thought Dennis beat out JJT as most despised reporter around here...am I remembering this wrong?

    Was he? That's annoying, if true. That guy had no business being out of shape where he was taken.

    I don't think anyone is worried about him going Frank the Tank. But thanks for the visual

    I feel you. Plus, Dennis does have some unflattering history with some Cowboys.
