I didn't get the first part of this guys... Sparano: We are going to play some of the younger guys early on Saturday to see how they play against first team talent. To be honest, Petitti played over 1000 plays and Fabini has played alot, so we really have some experience out there that isn't being considered. Pettiti is a really smart guy, athletic and strong. Fabini is pretty athletic and smart. Columbo is a big physical guy. We are alot better off right now than we were last year. A player on OL can get alot better from one year to the next. Petitti is alot different player than he was last year and his body looks really good. Alot of the top draft picks on OL, well, what you see is what you get. These other guys still haven't reached their potential as of yet. Corey Procter has caught my eye. He is a young guy that has learned our offense. He came to us from the Lions midseason last year. To date he is really doing some good things. I'm also impressed with McQuistan. He is tough, smart and physical. He is still a little green but he shows great promise. EDIT: InmanRoshi saves the day! The people who look at the Cowboys all seem to agree that the most questionable unit is the OL agree? Anyting you are looking for success in this game, it all starts up front. Its natural. I’m sure the question mark with Flozell being out and wonder if he can come back. A new player at left guard. Who is right tackle. The good thing is that this is the hardest working group I’ve seen since I’ve been in this league, and I’ve been with several teams. I also think we have some depth now that we haven’t had previously. You also worked for the Redskins, Jacksonville and Cleveland. When people talk about Superbowl teams, they talk about the star players. But the common thread is very good offensive lines. Very true. Pittsburgh week in and week out ran the ball week in and week out, and that’s always the best chance to win. Seattle had maybe the best left side in football. Very true. Now they’re missing Hutchinson and they’re in the same boat looking for new guys on that left side. How would you grade Flozell right now? After this week, I would say he’s at a C+ right now. Early on he was trying to feel out his knee. This week, every practice I’ve seen him do something a little bit better. Its not consistant, but he’s doing better every practice. Does he understand he might be the key to the OL? Yeah, he knows. He’s the type of guy who doesn’t mind the load on his back, but he needs to be out there and keep doing what he’s doing. He still has a long ways to go, but I think he’s gong to get there. Marco Rivera? I think Marco is playing the best football since he’s been in Dallas. He looks like he did with Green Bay. Last year at this time not only was he coming back from a back injury, he also had a hamstring injury that kept him out for almost 2 weeks. Physically he’s so much stronger than he was last year and in great shape. If we started this afternoon, who starts at RT? That’s a good question, and I think the HC will decide that. We’ve given all 3 guys a chance to go with the 1st group to see them against the best players. That will probably continue through the preseason games. Generally in sports when a guy says we have a committee at a position, it means you don’t have one a true one. Is that what we have here at RT? To be honest with you, Pettiti played over a 1000 plays last year. Fabini has played 10 years. So we have some experience there. They all do something a little different. Pettiti is kind of athletic guy for his position. Fabini is smart. Colombo is the physical guy. Ive done the draft wall to wall for nearly 20 years. It appears to me there are so many numbers of highly touted OL that don’t make it. And yet so many that come out of nowhere. Why is that? Its so hard to evaluate this position. Players at this position change so much from year 1 to year 2 in the league. You’re going by their height and weight coming out of college, but a guy like Pettiti isn’t close to the player he was a year ago. So you take a guy in the 3rd or 4th round, and he gets better and better in your system and he becomes a different player. Some of these 1st round guys, what you see is what you get. Any surprises in camp that have caught your eye? Cory Proctor has caught my eye. He was with the Lions last year, learned our offense and we were very curious about him. He’s doing good things on the practice field. I also like Pat McQuiston. He’s green, but he’s tough and physical. I like his upside. You’ve had the honor of being the guy in charge of sitting up in the booth and deciding whether or not to challenge on an instant replay. Yeah, I’m glad I’m not doing it anymore. Its not a fun job. I’ve did it for Marty Shottenheimer, Tom Coughlin and Bill Parcells … so you can imagine. You’re busy doing your other coaching duties and now you have to decide what to do on this replay that often times you don’t really get a good view of. Did you realize when you did it that you were the target for the press no matter what you did? If you didn’t challenge it, you should have. If you did challenge it and it was wrong, we’re blaming you. Its true. You could never be right, no matter what you did. Things moved so fast, and just the way the replays come to you is not consistent. The person at home watching TV often times gets a better view than we do.
