    EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- Laurent who?

    Kevin Ogletree finally did what the Cowboys had been hoping for after seeing him show flashes his rookie season. Ogletree, who had only 25 receptions for 294 yards and no touchdowns in his first three seasons, answered the call as the team's third receiver.

    He replaced Laurent Robinson, who left in free agency, and was the best receiver in a game that featured big-name stars Hakeem Nicks, Victor Cruz, Dez Bryant and Miles Austin.

    Ogletree, who is from Queens, N.Y., had eight receptions for 114 yards and two touchdowns. He was the star of stars in leading the Cowboys to a 24-17 victory before a disappointed Big Blue crowd of 82,287.

    I'll add myself to the list of those pretty critical of Ogletree. I'll also add myself to the list of those completely shocked that he performed like he did in last night's game! Honestly, he looked like a completely different player than in years past. Here's to hoping he keeps up to that level of play.

    I'll add my voice to the chorus. I wonder how Victor Cruz is feeling today?;)
