Cowboys Connecting with AT&T, and Other Stuff We've Learned During the First Week of Training Camp

   I'll be at Cowboys Stadium today at Noon for the official unveiling of the news I told you about on Monday: AT&T Cowboys Stadium.
   I won't make it out to Cowboys' training camp in Oxnard, California for another two weeks, but have been able to glean some info by talking to those who have seen every snap from one vantage point (scouts) or another (players) during this first week.
   As the Cowboys hit their first off day, this is what we think we know:

   10. No shocker, but Dez Bryant is again stealing the show. Physically dominating cornerbacks and catching everything thrown his way. And he's even talking to the media, which is an encouraging sign of maturity and growth.
   9. Because he's one of several players nursing a hamstring injury, Jeremy Parnell so far is doing nothing to push Doug Free at right tackle.
   8. Coaches like new outside linebacker Justin Durant's athleticism so much that he's on the field in Nickel packages as well.
   7. Among the draft picks, safety J.J. Wilcox is already turning heads and making an impact with ball-hawking aggressiveness. Cornerback B.W. Webb has been a flop.
   6. Tony Romo's full of extra pounds and full of hyperbole. He told Sirius XM's Gil Brandt this week that this was the "most complete team" he's been on as a Cowboy. The '07 team won 13 games and featured 13 Pro Bowl players. Let's all just chill.

  1. Don't forget about Bernadoodoo and Livings being hurt.
    Also comical this morning, and I like the guy but it's still comical: I'm listening to the Musers and they talk about the Cowboys press conference this afternoon, then I flip to the Fan during a Ticket commercial and two minutes later the breaking news sounder and Mike Fisher...The Cowboys will be announcing today at an afternoon press conference about the At&t deal...really? Horrible use of the breaking news sounder.

    1. This should teach you....
