I only tuned in midway throught it .. .seemed to be a run down of issues and position battles heading into camp. Norm: Do you see TO blowing up this year? Mick: Given that all of his money is frontloaded for the first two years, you would think the possibility of an early blow up is eliminated. You would think that a man with a lick of common sense would know that this is his final shot, financially. Someone else might give him a job offer if this fails, but they’re not going to give him up front money again. Let’s not assume he has that lick of sense. I’m thinking he or someone around him has an ounce, at least. If so, you’re not to cause problems this first year. I agree, this will be nothing but a honeymoon for this first year. He needs to realize that he doesn’t need someone in the media getting feeding him something that gets him all bent out of shape and stirred up over something that’s not really there. Also, we saw how Bill is going to handle this … he’s not going to talk about it. He’s not going to stir anything up. Its bad for us in the media, but its the best way to handle it for the team. Let’s move on to RT .. Pettiti, Fabini, Columbo .. sounds like a Chicago lawfirm. Sounds like something out of the Sopranos. I guess the leader out of the gate is Pettiti because he started 16 games last year. Everyone tells me that he’s stronger and better, but we’ll see. I could tell from the first day I saw him he was going to struggle last year because his hair do was so bad. I was more worried that his feet looked like they were stuck in cement. Center .. Johnson or Gurode? I think if the Cowboys have their druthers they would prefer Johnson win the spot. I’m told Johnson was a solid 310-312 lbs in mini-camp. Despite the fact that he was listed at 295 on the roster, I was told he finished the season at 285 last year. If he legitimately put on 20-25 more lbs of sustainable weight. the question is if he has kept his agility. Gurode is a good backup because he plays two spots. They are working out a couple of other guys in that role too. Okay, the defensive secondary. Davis, Watkins or Coleman at free safety. I think they start off with Davis, and see how much better he is with 15 starts under his belt. People need to understand last year was the first set of defensive downs he’s played since NFLE in 2004. I think as the season went along he got better. Maybe now he’ll be more confident and aggressive with the added experience. A lot of people want to blame him for deep balls, but I think his problem was he was too passive on balls underneath. That’s where safeties get their picks. Noseguard .. who subs in for Ferguson? They got a couple of guys, but its basically Ferguson and what? Thomas was a nice training camp story, but do you want to play him 30 downs? Stanely has something I assume since they drafted him, he looks the part but does he get himself in shape and can he do it? At least you knew about Glover, I don’t care what his size was, it was still LeRoi Glover. Runningback .. .Julius or Marion? That could be some good competiton. It might be a shared position. I saw Barber the other day, and again, its just amazing what happens to these 2nd year players after their first offseason. He looks so much bigger and stronger. But he just doesn’t have one dimension that Julius has … homerun ability. He probably left some yards on the field on some of his runs last year that Julius would have taken to the house. The funny thing is Barber looks quicker at times. Julius is more of a glider, and Barber is a bit more of a slasher. It at least gives the appearance that Barber is quicker sometimes. I just know when Julius is healthy, he’s a darn good RB. He just needs to prove he can stay healthy. He’s had things happened to him. Nobody is injury prone when they have a collar bone broken. Injury prone is "Oh I don't think I can practice today because I tweaked my knee". Injury prone is Jacob Rogers. I guarantee you his ankle was bothering him all last year. When you get a high ankle sprain you might as well get ready to nurse it the entire year.
