I'd be very suprised if that happens. Not many 5th round rookies start opening day.
Yep. And Merriman's nick has been lights out for a long time. He even has a tatoo from college showing a light switch.
well then i would change it but i can't, i like the nick name lights out but hammer is good too
true, he is just a rookie, but he's only going to be asked to roam CF, and he can do that given his size and speed, plus his closing speed is very good in case he reads routes too late, which he will, that's something Killer never had going for him, once he read the WRs route wrong, or late, the play was over, big-play for the opposing O
but IMO, Watkins will start off in the nickel for a few games
Not to knock on Newman (who i actualy like) but newspaper is a lame name for a corner. and isn't lights out Shawn Merriman?
Yeah, it's kinda weird. We named him that because "New" is in "Newspaper", and because the newspaper covers the whole world, or whatever.
I would like for his nickname to be "Skinny Kid Who Swats Ball". :
I'm pretty sure they're referring to the first preseason game against Seattle.
I don't know about this Watkins kid, I was at the late practice today (wed) and Watkins let receivers get by him deep, at least twice...Parcells was not happy!
How about we wait to see him in an actual game before we anoint him the next great cowboy saftey.
Let's not forget that he's been playing against the same players every day in practice and he knows a lot about what the offense is running. You hear about the picks he's had, but you don't always hear about the times he's gotten beat.
I'd be really scared if he starts the washington game. Moss is praying to get to go against a rookie.
great news a late round draft pick doing very well.
Did I miss the article that goes along with this? I mean, I think Watkins will eventually end up starting anyway, but I would be somewhat surprised if he begins the season as a starter.
Roy Williams' nickname has been "Superman" ever since he flew over the line and blew up Chris Sims.
Pat watkins covered moss in college like a blanket.
Let's go Pwat!
I don't think so. Moss' last year at UM was in 2000. Watkins played at FSU from 2002 to 2005......
I thought they were referring to santana moss...
Thats what I thought.
Seems the Cowboys wanted to at least lock-up the position because they may have thought that they wouldn't take a FS before all of the "big names" were gone. However, Watkins fell to them. Thats why we have Davis at his current contract.
If Davis beats out Watkins, fine. If Watkins beats out Davis, fine. If Watkins can do it, I would like it better because he is just starting his career with the Cowboys.
Nope the 2 kids in the 2006 draft.
Watkins and Sinorice Moss.
