    People joke about this kind of thing a lot...but I truly do believe that, in fact, the sky is actually falling today if this is true.

    Cross training in case of emergency. No biggie.

    I like the fact that Parnell is getting reps with the first team. He never got a fair shot because of his injury.

    I don't see the big deal in this. It's not like we're playing the giants this Sunday. Just switching things up with Leary out. Want to see how Parnell is with 1's

    The Cowboys are busy looking at roster options. They said to themselves, "Can we get by with only three spots at OG?" and answered the question by saying, "Well, we could move Frederick to Guard and bring in Costa, and if one our tackles can slide inside to guard in an emergency we have two emergency options that can save a roster spot there. So, let's use this practice to see if Free can do the job."
    So, 4 tackles,(Smith, Free, Parnell, Bell) 2 centers, (Frederick, Costa) 3 guards (Leary, Bernadeau, Arkin) = 9 total OL.

    Should we be worried or is this just the coaching staff trying different OL combinations in a routine sort of way?

    many sources over the last couple of years have said they do not think Free would be very good at guard. Guess the boys are looking anyway

    I'm not sure what to think about this.
    Arkin never looked like a disaster in games to me.
    Free taking over the RG spot sounds like Defcon1.
    I truly think Free is too "fragile"- every time they shift him or he has to focus on different techniques, it spells big trouble, not physically fragile.
    Having said that- I'm getting more sure what to think about this- No sir, I don't like it.

    If this lineup becomes more of an everyday thing, then it's significant. Otherwise, like Fischer tweeted, they're looking at contingencies.

    I doubt Free can play OG well but how is it a disaster to take a look at him there? Was it a disaster when Tony Wise moved Kevin Gogan from RT to RG? A disaster when Wise moved Nate Newton from RG to RT? and then on to LG? I believe Landry moved Mark Tuinei from DT to all the OL spots other than center.

    Oh no! The coaches are giving Parnell time at RT. Why weren't we warned? Seriously folks? This means nothing other than trying to get Parnell some reps.

    Does anyone not think Free could play guard better than Arkin?
