Cowboys Practice Notes Saturday July 25th

The Cowboys put on the pads this morning and got after it.  Here are some of my takes from watching.

*I like rookie running back Tashard Choice

The kid from Georgia Tech got some time as the second team running back.  He stuck it up in there and ran strong.  I spoke of offensive coordinator Jason Garrett and running back coach Skip Peete and they rave about Choice’s smarts.

Peete told me he had a long way to go, but they really like is ability to get tough yards and pass protection. 

**Felix Jones is here

I saw the first round pick walking to his hotel room around lunch time.  I asked, “Felix, did you get all you wanted?”  He said, “Yes”.

The Cowboys expect him to be there change of pace running back.

*Tony Curtis worked on the 1st team as the second tight end in sets. 

*Jason Witten looks good. 

Mickey Sganola of said to me after another Witten grab, “Witten looks in mid-season form.”

*Adam Jones can ball.

He dropped a sure interception after perfectly jumping a route.  The guy has skills.  He also field a few punts and can makes some shakes of guys.  If you are a Cowboys fan you have to pray this guy stays out of trouble because he is one talented dude.

*Dave Campo didn’t get the Pacman memo

Defensive backs coach Dave Campo keeps calling Adam Jones, “Pac”.   He has requested we call him Adam from now on.

*Brad Johnson can’t throw anymore

In full squad drills 40-year old backup QB Brad Johnson looked slow and would have been sacked a few times if the defensive guys were allowed to touch the QB.

Jerry Jones needs to bring in a guy because Johnson isn’t a guy I would feel good about if Romo went down.  Remember what it was like around here when Vinny Testaverde had to play?  It wasn’t pretty.

*Roy Williams was off the field in 3-receiver sets

I did notice #38 was off the field when the offense went went three WR’s.  I’ll have to see if that is a trend this afternoon.

*T.O. had a nice long TD catch on Terence Newman and Newman picked off a pass while covering T.O. earlier in practice.
