    OBSERVATION DECK:
    Here's what I saw from the Cowboys' 12th training camp practice Tuesday afternoon at the Alamodome in San Antonio:

    • Rookie CB Josh Thomas of Cedar Hill had a good day. Thomas came on a blitz from the inside early in team drills and would have sacked QB Jon Kitna. He then broke up a pass by Tony Romo intended for WR Jesse Holley.

    Later, Thomas intercepted a pass from QB Tom Brandstater down the right sideline that was intended for rookie WR Dwayne Harris.

    • The Cowboys' afternoon practice was without pads for the first time since Day 2 of training camp.

    • Undrafted rookie free agent LB Orie Lemon (Oklahoma State) continued to impress. Early in team drills, he would have sacked QB Stephen McGee.

    I like what i'm hearing about this Orie Lemon kid. I hope he can keep it up once the games start. Do you see them keeping 5 inside linebackers?

    Probably not because it's so hard to put together a 53 man roster and keep all the udfa guys that are doing well. But if Carter goes on PUP that could open up a spot for him at least for 6 weeks. Or cut Brooking.

    More likely that they just cut Brooking..

    James, Lee, Carter, and Lemon. Might be a bit of a stretch but wouldn't bother me. Still need to see if Lemon can make plays in game action though.

    we still need a receiver. i think the coaching staff will wait until after the first game and sign a proven receiver.

    Don't worry about. Of course we don't know if it was 1 drop and 3 catches and none of the catches were spectacular there for leaving the reporter to exclude them, so it looks more like a "story". I wouldn't worry at all.

    Oh that makes sense? Oh sign a WR who missed all of camp has no rythm with ROMO and doesn't know the playbook? Very Very doubtful actually I would say chances are 90% things will stay the same. I swear this topic has been beaten to death. You can't beat a dead horse. Otree or Harris will be the #3 deal with it people. We are going to get our younger guys experience to help build the future for years to come. They don't become proven unless they play.

    C'mon now. White was a failure at LB, but a HOFer at DT. These guys really need to proof their stuff better.

    The FO would be absolutely crazy not to keep 5 ILBs considering the health questions about the four we know we'll be keeping. If we go with just four, we're asking for a lot of trouble IMO.

    Lemon is slower, but may be more ready than Albright.

    I like Lemon, but Albright has been a playmaker so far. Stash Lemon on PS, take a chance on the more versatile Albright.
