    Petiti looked impressive to me Monday. He is in better shape and despite getting hit hard by D Line guys he would stay in great position and recover from initial contact. At end of PM practice he stayed late with a coach and worked footwork and hand punch/position as he got back into strength stance for that contact with DE. He did get pushed back a bit in some of the initial frst contacts with DE's on drills, but noone got past him. This might be why he was doing the extra work so that he would be set on collisions and would maintain his ground. His better conditioning and strength sure let him recover fast each time though, and like I said noone got around or thru him.

    He came to fence after staying late and I got his sig on my cap and he laughed when I told him to "tell you DAD the Pittdawg to keep posting for us on the Internet". Nice guy. Huge. I'm 230 pounds, 6 feet, and work out and he made me feel like a peanut. Classy, friendly, humble guy. Nodded and said Ok to pump us up on forums to his Dad. Was fun meeting him.

    He is a thick guy with big natural build that he's working on. Not as wide as naturally wide as Flo or maybe even Columbo but has the better natural barrel chest and thick body and legs. Gonna be a tank for us for a long while I think. Great attitude.

    Thought I'd share that as well about Monday.

    first, thanks for the nice comments on rob. don't worry about my posting, i will whenever i think i have something to add.

    second, i want all to know that rob shares your enthusiasm for the cowboys and is trying to make himself into the type of player that cowboy fans will enjoy watching play. he has worked his butt off and i hope that is enough to keep him moving forward.

    I like this kid. I'm sure you all are tired of hearing me say that. He played every snap, a lot of them injured and a lot of them wondering "***?" He manned up, took his beatings and never cried uncle. Not once. I love the under dogs. (Matter of fact, when in discussion I refer to him as "Under Dog." Anyone remember that cartoon?)
    He looks great. Looks a little "seasoned" even. He's gonna be a Dallas Cowboy hero before it's all said and done. Yes sir, the 6th round draft choice who was given a chance and proved a lot of folks wrong.

    EDIT : Oh yeah. Thanks a ton Larry.....you lucky Bastid!!!!

    I like Rob alot, the guy was a 6th rounder last year and was the starting RT the entire year, he was a beast in pitt untill his senior year, lets hope he can get back to what he was.

    Petitti is no longer a feel good story. We depend on him. He will anchor our line for years to come. He's won us over with his great attitude and work ethic. He's also showing signs of being a leader which is an added bonus. Did I mention great work ethic?

    ...a new signature picture. Your son by all reports has dedicated himself to a new look and attitude to this upcoming season and it would do him justice if you alter your signature to reflect his newer, leaner body.
