    7:22 Tim MacMahon (ESPNDallas):
    McGee play-action drag to Phillips. Orie Lemon is right there to make the stop.

    I don't think Randal made as many plays in his 4 years as Radway has in the first week of camp.

    Is it me or does it seem like there is no running lanes from reading the running play tweets? Man. Everything is is stuffed or met in the backfield or someone getting beat on a block. Also I take KO didn't have a good day? I didn't see his name but once and it was on a miscommunication on his part on a hot route. He needs to clean that up right now considering he should be running those often if he wins the 3rd WR battle.
