Monday Notes From The Locker Room

The Cowboys were feeling good in the locker room today. They should. 2-0 is where they should be.

The Giants game was the home opener for the Cowboys. The Dolphins will not be very good. That has made the Cowboys 2-0.

Give the defense credit for being aggressive and forcing Dolphins QB Trent Green to throw four picks.

Head coach Wade Phillips gave out Gameballs to the following players.

Safety Ken Hamlin
Safety Roy Williams
Tackle Mark Colombo
Kicker Nick Folk
WR Patrick Crayton
Corner Anthony Henry

I thought nosetackle Jay Ratliff deserved one. Miami only had 61 yards of rushing. He is now starting since Jason Ferguson is out for the year.

Now the Cowboys get ready for Chicago Bears. The game will be in Chicago. Special Teams will be key. Devin Hester ran one back in their win over the Chiefs. He ran another back, but it was nullified by a penalty.

“Rex Grossman took them to a Super Bowl last year as a starter, it means something, especially in this league,” Chris Canty told me today. Good Rex or Bad Rex, the Cowboys defense has to be ready to stop running back Cedric Benson. The Bears are all about running the football.

Canty also praised the Bears offensive line.

I asked tight end Jason Witten if the Cowboys had another 37 points in them. He smiled and said, “I hope so. To put 37 against that defense would be nice. When you get down in the red zone they don’t give up touchdowns.”

Of course you can see that game on NBC 5 Sunday night at 7:15.
