    Just about every account of camp I've read, Jermey Parnell is a non-factor in the competition with Doug Free. Not even getting a look with the 1s.

    Thought that would be a big part of camp.

    Is he hurt?

    It's early but I'm far from sold on Parnell had a big debate over him several weeks ago. Everyone is so down on Free it's made Parnell look like a beast to some.

    1. I don't think they've practiced in pads yet.

    2. They're implementing extensive zone concepts. Reports indicate that he is thinking too much with the zone concepts.

    I hope you're right, I put a lot of stock in him being a B ball player and he looks the part of a strong RT. We desperately need some of these projects to pan out.

    Is this for real? If so, I'm not panicking as Parnell is slated as the backup OT and Free starts unless he gets injured (or continues to regress)

    Just came down, they haven't even put pads on yet. I'm sure plenty of guys are also just rusty.

    They saw all they needed to in those few games last year most likely. I know allota people had hope for him but I'm afraid it was outta desperation.

    If Free keeps getting embarrassed by guys like Bass, either Parnell or the new tackle from the Eagles should get a shot

    IMO Free is suffering in some part to what Gurode suffered to under parcells. Switching back and forth from positions on the OL. Sure there were some things that are unexcusable for any OL that Free did last yr. I just dont think he can be as bad as he was last yr.

    The prospect of Free still starting at RT this year has me shaking in my boots. I can only imagine what Romo must be feeling.

    at this rate, there won't be enough to field a team for the first preseason game.......hamstrings....hmm only a matter of time until Mr Hamstring himself, Miles Austin is bitten by it and lost for the entire preseason.......

    The money they paid Romo he should be willing to play in front of no OL if they asked

    Well, he does that because it is his job to do so. He is still aloud to wish for a better O-Line.

    I always thought that "dancing lessons" were the kinds of things they gave in OTAs, why is he just learning this stuff now?
