    IRVING, Texas -- One of the things the Cowboys liked about safety Danny McCray is his ability to make open field tackles. But over time, McCray improved his ability to cover receivers and tight ends giving the defensive coaches confidence in his ability in pass coverage.

    While McCray hasn't given up a touchdown, he's coming off the field in dime coverage for Eric Frampton.

    "Danny is just banging away," coach Jason Garrett said Wednesday morning when asked about the safety. "He's been dealing with some injuries all year long, he's another one of those tough guys who everybody just loves to be around because he keeps playing. He plays a lot on defense, plays a lot on special teams; So there have been a couple of things that haven't gotten his way, there's no question about that, but he's working hard and he's trying to get better, he's playing through a lot of different things."

    McCray hasn't given up a touchdown? Is that for real?

    Mike Wallace would have been a TD.

    He does not give up TD's because Sensy always cleans up after him.

    Trade McCray to the Ravens for Ed Reed. Throw in a 5th-round pick to close the deal.

    Can't be accurate.

    Pretty sure Aldrick Robinson ran by him.

    Are you serious? He's our best special teams player. You don't cut McCray.

    I agree.

    Why is everyone so reactionary with these absolute statements.

    The man has a role on the team.

    Exactly, we all know he struggles at safety but we have nothing else. He's not supposed to be a great safety.

    That's about the size of it.

    He's not suppose to be starting out there.

    But stuff happens and he's out there.

    Yeah it would be great to see him be a "Top 32" safety, but he's not.

    Next year he'll be 3rd string safety at best.

    I'm pretty sure we would have to throw in Dexter Coakley in order to make the deal legit.

    For the record, the best special teams player on this team is Eric Frampton #27. That guy is a beast!
