    IRVING, Texas – One offseason practice is left before the Cowboys break until training camp, but here is a review of what happened on Wednesday at Valley Ranch:

    ** Dez Bryant was featured in a blog post Wednesday afternoon, but the most dominant defensive player in the workout? How about DT Ben Bass? The second-year defensive lineman was all over the field, penetrating, getting to the quarterback for a sack, blowing up running plays and even forcing an interception. On the pick, Bass tipped a QB Kyle Orton pass into the air, which allowed DT Sean Lissemore to come down with the turnover. Later on the goal line he bulled G David Arkin back into RB DeMarco Murray that was a sign of his strength.

    **Rookie WR Terrance Williams had an effective day. He came down with a jump ball over CB Brandon Carr in one on one drills. In seven-on-seven work he made a leaping grab over CB Sterling Moore for a touchdown, nicely getting his feet down for the score.

    ** Overall, however, the defense won the day. LB Sean Lee was able to stop TE Jason Witten short of a first down on a fourth-down play. Later S Barry Church stopped WR Cole Beasley short on a fourth-down play. The defense was able to blitz to force quicker throws short of the marker to end the drive.

    maybe its the new hires, or something in the air, but im liking the new defense. i know its early, and theres no real competition yet, but to stop guys like Witten, is a good sign. It may not amount to much, but football is here, so im enjoying it.

    Certainly seems it. If he is getting his butt handed to him on paddy cake then when the pads come on he is toast.

    No offense, Fuzzy, but without being able to punch the guard is a practice dummy in this type of situation.
