    Rookie cornerback's "conscientious" approach to practice and the film room pays off

    IRVING, Texas -- He's no longer known just as No. 37 by the veterans around Valley Ranch. They all know Bryan McCann's name now.

    "He is the man," receiver Roy Williams said. "Mr. McCann is what I call him."

    Guys who use savvy and speed to score game-changing touchdowns two straight weeks get respect. They also tend to get a lot of recognition. That's certainly been the case for the undrafted rookie cornerback from SMU.

    McCann was named the NFC's defensive player of the week after his 101-yard interception return for a touchdown in the Nov. 14 upset over the New York Giants. The Dallas Cowboys were forced to play McCann at cornerback after injuries to starters Terence Newman and Mike Jenkins, and he responded by breaking a franchise record and busting the game open when it appeared the Giants were on the verge of taking the lead.

    I heard him today on The Ticket with Bob and Dan. The kid sounded grounded and real smart. I'm glad he finally made the team.
