    Umm... you do know that Tom Coughlin is taking Barber into consideration, right?

    A good head coach is going to anticipate what moves the other head coach will make to negate plays and players in order to counter them.

    Football is chess. You don't sacrifice pieces on the board. If Garrett had wanted Barber completely off the board, he would have never allowed Barber to board the plane.

    However, having a player in uniform does not dictate how many snaps (if any) a player will take (just ask Tashard Choice). It does give the other head coach something to consider though and that's an option you want to hold onto as a head coach--no matter how many actual minutes you GIVE that player.

    Yep, and if this was some sort of protest move by Barber, then he clearly doesn't realize what an ideal candidate he is to be a sacrificial lamb for Garrett to use to put the rest of the team on notice that he is serious.

    He is overpaid, has lost a gear and has adequate replacements behind him. And then he shows up like he's indispensable?

    Yeah I agree with the boarding the plane one. Let the guy dress out, I just don't want someone not following the rules on the field.

    Well Marion Barber's best friend was saying that Jason Garrett would not be helping the Cowboys this season so this is no surprise.

    IMO, that may very well be a blatant disregard for JG's instruction. In that case sitting him for the entire first half would be the bare minimum that I would do. It's not like he is Emmitt incarnate or something.

    If he forgot, that's one thing....but I hardly think that he "forgot"....but I'm sure that is the excuse that he gave JG.

    And if I'm JG I won't give him a single snap and tell him I forgot after the game is over.

    Even if he 'forgot', that's exactly the kind of mental brain fart JG is trying to get rid of.

    I'll be disappointed if he plays at all in at least the first half.

    I'd cut him. He is perfect for making a statement.

    Marion Barber did not follow new dress code

    Jason Garrett made it clear that players were required to wear sport coats, ties, slacks and dress shoes for road trips. After all, today's game against the New York Giants is a business trip.

    Hanging around the Jersey City Westin on Saturday night when the team arrived, I noticed Marion Barber was in a sport coat and jeans without a tie. Everybody else I saw - and it was not everybody - met Garrett's requirement.

    Is it a big deal? Not really but there is a level of disrespect being shown by not following the dress code in the first week. And it gives Garrett the chance to send a message, whether he does it publicly or not. Players will know what happens.

    Agree. Much bigger than Curvin Richards. Probably against the CBA though.

    If Marty B remembered, then the other MB should have.
