Alan Ball looking forward to facing Redskins Here's the Cowboys starting Free Safety Alan Ball talking ball on Sirius NFL Radio last night... Alan Ball on Sirius NFL Radio Ball does seem settled down and he sounds like he's looking forward to the challenege of being the starter this season. I completely agree with him that with the pass rush working on a high level it makes his job a whole lot easier because there isn't time for opposing WR's to get open deep down the field. Yeah I am with Ball on the Vikings game. I really need the Cowboys to whip their *** in the rematch. That game will be in Minnesota on October 17th as the afternoon game.
