    OXNARD, Calif. -- It all starts with Brandon Carr's feet.

    Look at him at the line of scrimmage, leaning forward on the balls of his feet, staring into the wide receiver's midsection. When the receiver moves, he moves. The receiver moves left, Carr shuffles right, but not without shoving his right arm into his opponent's jersey numbers to slow down any progress.

    "It's like basketball," Carr said. "You've got to be in front of the player and use your feet first, then the hands follow. People think being a press corner is just being physical up top, trying to dominate the receiver. You've got to be smart and use your feet first."

    Press corner has been a term thrown around Cowboys' training camp the way Jerry Jones threw millions at a stadium in Arlington about to open its fourth season.

    When I smile thinking of what a great player we seem to have snagged in Carr, I am almost enraptured to think what Mo can learn from one of the best around. Could easily develop into one of the best CB tandems in the league in short order. Assuming they know their assignments on the field... :bang2:
