    IRVING, Texas -- Last week head coach Jason Garrett told his players the story of Wally Pipp, the former New York Yankee who lost his spot in the lineup to a youngster named Lou Gehrig.

    It was simply a famous example of a player (Gehrig) seizing opportunity.

    Running back Tashard Choice says Garrett's favorite phrase is "next starter up." Choice could find himself in a familiar role if Felix Jones (shoulder) is out or limited next Monday against the Redskins.

    "He doesn't even call you a backup," Choice said. "That's how he sees it because he understands the NFL, how people get hurt all the time."

    Funny thing is when Felix went put it was Murray who carried the load. Seems like the writer has a thing for TC. What makes him think it will be any different Monday? He is such a liability in pass protection.
