Team sources tell me that Brent has been nothing but a scout-team participant this week, and that he hasn’t even elevated himself to the second team.
The Cowboys insist that their focus is on Sunday night’s game against the Giants and not the myriad sidebars that go along with having the high profile of a 7-3 team.
Dez Bryant’s desire to be a ‘Cowboy for life’ has not faded. But on Wednesday he made it clear that through the frustration of waiting on a contract extension, he’d like to make certain that commitment is reciprocated.
But on Sunday, the Cowboys simply needs to handle lowly Jacksonville, which they did by a score of 31-17.
On the eve of kick off, a massive collection of Cowboys quotes from the Saturday Fan Forum outside of Wembley. This is extensive, raw and “every moving blade of grass,” as I know the Fan Fan likes it:
Cowboys owner Jerry Jones has no intention of playing a “home” game in London, and that shouldn’t prevent another Super Bowl from coming to Arlington.
The Cowboys’ Friday in London began with QB Tony Romo working against air with a high level of accuracy and will later be filled with the team’s only day of group sightseeing.
Jack Crawford is a relatively low-profile Cowboys defensive lineman. But this week, in his home country, he’s reached a new level of celebrity.
Bruce Carter is…unsettled. His position as a starting linebacker for the Cowboys. His contractual future in Dallas, and his stomach in London.
Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo, despite two fractures in his back, practiced with the team on Thursday at London’s Allianz Rugby pitch.
Sean Lee had plans. Not just plans for the Dallas Cowboys 2014 campaign, but also for the team’s trip to London. Once again, those plans have changed.
In an effort to make Wednesday as normal as possible, the Dallas Cowboys are making this a “Romo Wednesday,” dealing with defensive-line injuries and pumping in music at practice.
