    They will probably work JJ in. I doubt they just start him over Allen.

    Exactly. The only reason to be starting Allen to begin with was the fact that they were worried about rookie mistakes. Allen has not been consistent enough, so there is no reason to hold back the rookie.

    The fact that JJ is this close is a ringing endorsement for him, the secondary coaches, and the fact that the scheme is so easy to pickup. Wouldn't have happened last year, imo.

    so Broaddus seems to think that the cowboys like the Wilcox / Cook matchup better than the Allen / Cook matchup. could be the main reason why Wilcox is starting and/or getting the majority of the snaps

    Good to see Terrance Williams dominating practice. But the question is was it williams dominating or webb sucking? Where is Miles Austin? This guy was a beast (one year) and now look at him.

    I'd be excited to see Wilcox out there starting. Let him develop on the field.

    So about Dez's back, is it going to more of a problem then his ankle? Also, how much of a problem is his back going to be? Hopefully he won't be limited come Sunday, but it honestly doesn't sound too good.

    My opinion is that Miles is a seasoned vet now. Fans/Media only care about the new kids on the block, not the guys who have been around awhile.

    So far, this is looking a great draft class. Pretty impressive that our first four picks should become major contributors.

    I don't know.. Miles has been under the radar all offseason. He got a little love last week because KC was his breakout game. Other than that, he doesn't get mentioned.

    It's exciting to hear about Williams and Wilcox. I know some have been down on him, but I think Williams has a lot of potential and could become a valuable weapon for us this year.

    I mentioned in another thread after reviewing the game that there were some plays not being made by Will Allen and I questioned if they would consider J.J. Wilcox. On the very first drive by K.C. there were back to back plays that were critical. On one play Allen really should have had an interception. He got his hands on the ball and just did not finish the play. The next play (I think it was the next play) was the 3rd and 15 that they converted on a qb scramble. Allen had trouble getting off of a block to get to the QB. Likely a player like Wilcox would be more physical and could have gotten off of the block and stopped him short.

    If he made the first play the Chiefs get zip on their first drive. If he makes the second play we hold them to a field goal. There were some other plays that I thought Allen could have reacted better as well. I'm hopeful that Wilcox at least is able to get some snaps and get more used to playing in the base defense.

    Make no mistake about it, if Wilcox plays there will be mistakes made by him, but he also has a chance to make some big plays too.

    I believe JJ was the one recognized the break-down during the NY game when Cruz scored and tried to come across the field to defend when Allen let him free.

    Edit: maybe that was Webb
