It is Monday, August 8th, and the Cowboys are well into the second week of training camp. First of all, thank goodness that Marcus Spears' injury wasn't as bad as it was. I am still skepticle though more about the groin pull and the high ankle sprain. That can't be rushed to heal (I guess you can say the same about the MCL). I DO NOT WANT SPEARS RUSHED BACK. If it means shelving him until October, I'm fine with it. Maybe I am getting a little paranoid about a possible relapse with any one of the three injuries. I couldn't help but laugh today as I was reading all of the posts about Demarcus Ware - and so many of the posters practically creaming their jeans. The news is extremely encouraging regardless. I don't want to rain on anyone's parade, but you do know he will make some mistakes right? I just hope that his mistakes are masked by his athleticism. It is very encouraging to hear the positive inputs from Jim Burt and Carl Banks. I just hope that Demarcus Ware isn't the only player that can get the quarterback. I am sure that will not be the case. You would have to think that if Ware gets going and strut his stuff, then the floodgates should open up for Ellis, Glover, Canty, Coleman, and Fergy. I like how Parcells said that Marion Barber had a good practice today. He also said that he has hit a wall a little bit, but didn't it seem like Julius Jones hit a wall some last year? Did you hear what Parcells said about A-Train? He said he does everything very well. To me, that doesn't sound like a guy that is going to get cut. I see Dallas keeping five backs: Jones, Thomas, Barber, Thompson, and either Barnes or Polite. Also nice to hear that Newman is getting some praise. Should Dallas get Mickens? Well, I believer that you can NEVER have enough good corners. I would rather have the free safety situation addressed though.
