    Cowboys' Smith signs, now must learn on the job
    Offensive tackle a bit wide-eyed facing Ware on first day of camp.
    By Jeff McDonald



    If Tyron Smith had any choice in the matter, any choice at all, this is not how he would have wanted his first day on the job in the NFL to go.

    There would have been minicamps, supervised offseason workouts, maybe some honest-to-goodness coaching — all of which would have gradually led the Dallas Cowboys' prized rookie offensive tackle to this moment.

    Instead, Smith signed his first contract Thursday morning, then lined up against a five-time Pro Bowler in the afternoon. It went about as well as could have been expected.

    “I ain't going to lie,” Smith said. “It kicked my butt.”

    DeMarcus Ware will do that to the savviest NFL veteran, much less a wide-eyed rookie fresh off the bus.

    I really like the fact that he readily admits DeWare owned him.

    There is no way to better ensure future Pro Bowls and All-Pro selections than to go up against the game's best in practice.

    They actually took that quote out of context and he never even mentioned ware in that interview. He said it kicked my butt when they asked about the 3 hour practice.

    Same here....kid seems humble and willing to learn. When you combine that with his size and athletic ability you should have yourself a very good tackle for a very long time.

    Blatantly horrible reporting. I watched the interview. He clearly stated it was the 3 hour practice that kicked his butt. He never mentioned Ware. This is why reporters are taken to task, they create rather than report.
