    Hey all:

    Listening to the pregame, just announced that Rivera will dress but not play and Marcus Spears will dress and possibly play, depending on how the warm-ups go.

    Just Passing on some info.

    I wanted to see this too, but I think Rob will have a good game.

    How long will it take for Rivera to get comfortable with his linemates and start jelling together? THis layoff and not being able to play can't be good. Especially for Pettiti.

    They are dressed but not playing.
    Neither is Rivera.
    Jerry just said in an interview.
    Beriault should play, however.

    he just made a interesting comment about henson and romo too!!

    said that in 7 on 7 henson grades out better than both romo and bledsoe but during game like situations his numbers are down. he said romo need to avoid impulse plays.

    Jerry just said that Spears is not playing but will be dressed out.

    He commented that he wants to see Romo make better decisions, (mentioned the pass against Seattle that was almost picked when he threw it in the middle of the field with no receiver there). Pretty much wants Romo to play under control. Expects Henson to play like he does in 7 on 7 drills, (Jones said that Henson grades out the best in these drills of all the QB's, but he doesn't do as well when he plays live)

    Not starting another Henson-Romo thread, just passing along information.

    I guess it's good practice to get them used to going through the motions for a game so they get whatever experience they can each time. (mainly Spears)

    They're members of the team, why shouldn't they dress out? There's no limit on players you can dress in preseason games.

    They are wearing Throwback jerseys, so Jerry isn't going to miss a chance to get more folks in those unis so he can sell them.
